Hummmm, according to Wiki there were 3,068,000 millionaires in 2012 but in 2011 there were 3,104,000 or a drop of 1.2% which means we are going in the wrong direction!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millionaire

Now this source claims there are 9 million millionaires HOUSEHOLDS?

Study finds 9 million members of the millionaires club in the U.S.
A report from Spectrem Group, a Chicago-based research firm, found that 8.99 million U.S. households have a net worth of at least $1 million. This is lower than the 2007 high, but higher than the 2008 low.

Murder Charges Dropped for Illinois Man After Two Decades Behind Bars: June 28, 2013

A Chicago prisoner’s 20-year nightmare ended today when Cook County prosecutors dropped murder charges against him, clearing the path for his release. Daniel Taylor was convicted of a 1992 double murder and sentenced to life in prison despite records showing he was in police custody for disorderly conduct at the time the murders took place.

In February, Taylor’s attorneys from the Center on Wrongful Conviction filed a petition with the Cook County Circuit Court that confirms there were five current and former police employees who have sworn the records accurately indicate that Taylor was locked up. It also claims that a prosecutor’s notes and other documents supporting Taylor’s innocence were withheld before trial.

A lengthy interrogation two weeks after the crime resulted in Taylor’s false confession. Seven other juveniles also confessed and implicated each other in the murders. Taylor was 17 years old at the time. Among the others was Dennis Mixon, who admitted his involvement in a Chicago Tribune investigation in 2001. Mixon told reporters that he was involved but that the others were not. An accomplice, currently incarcerated for another murder, was also named.

Of the eight men, two had their charges dismissed before trial, one was acquitted and five were convicted. Two of the convicted men were released after serving their sentences, which leaves Mixon, Taylor and Deon Patrick, who is still fighting to overturn his conviction from prison. A review by State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez’s Conviction Integrity Unit finally persuaded Alvarez that Taylor’s conviction should be set aside, reports the Tribune.

The case illustrates an emerging pattern in Cook County’s wrongful convictions of the early 90s, which is also evident in the “Englewood Four” and “Dixmoor Five” cases. In both cases, false confessions were elicited from young men of color resulting in multiple wrongful convictions. Years later, DNA testing proved the nine men innocent and revealed that only one perpetrator had committed each crime.

Update: Request of Information under FOIA in an upcoming case includes not only Postmaster General, but also Inspector general for the USPS, David C. Williams, former military intelligence officer, who hopefully will be honest and will produce the information about USPS actions in response to my complaint in the past year.| June 30, 2013 |

Press release
Upcoming legal action against the Postmaster General includes a legal action for production of information under 5USC 552 FOIA against the Inspector General for the USPS, who received a criminal complaint from Attorney Taitz, showing Barack Obama using a forged Selective Service registration with a fabricated US Postal stamp and did not produce any response for a year.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millionaire
Rougie doesn't even know an apple from an orange. The point is that his 90% figure was made up. Also most "self-made" millionaires I know were sent to private schools from well off families that were not millionaires but close to it. Then when Forbes asked if they were born into wealth they say "no" and it means 86% are self-made. Bullshit. Many were born into well off families with many advantages and then their home values increased to the point that they became "self made" millionaires. Average age 61. The Nixon-Ford-Carter years and early 80s were instrumental in making them millionaires due to INFLATION. Self-made millionaire was my grandfather who came to this country with nothing and was worth a mil in the 1940s when $1M meant something.

Makes no difference how many lost because that does not change either the 40% figure or the 10% currently on the list due to inheritance. Duh!

Oh,today, it's an average of $3.60 per gallon. That is, in today's dollars, less than GWB's 2008 price . You also import less. You also produce more.

WEll, if my 90% is wrong, prove it?
And just because someones's parents were rich, does not mean he was handed it.
Oh, and just what is the average net worth of the Forbes 400? What would you expect the average net worth of the F-400 was thirty years ago? Yes, inflation is a factor. But we still have few millionaires now than when Obama entered the White House and that is evn with the inflation factor.

Now check this graph out.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Graphic.png

Now, note 1999. That was when the DOT.COM bubble burst. Then in 2002 the Bush tax cuts started to cut in. By 2006 we had had the housing bubble burst, interest rates bottomed out, and people moved their money into the stock market. Notice the peak in 2007 just before the stock market dumped.

Sorry Rougie, you made the false claim and YOU cannot back it up, as usual.

And the wealthy get wealthier, contrary to Rougie's fantasies, and the rest get less:

"From 2009 to 2011, the mean wealth of the 8 million households in the more affluent group rose to an estimated $3,173,895 from an estimated $2,476,244, while the mean wealth of the 111 million households in the less affluent group fell to an estimated $133,817 from an estimated $139,896."

Facebook Blocks, Restores 'Politically Incorrect' Post of Fox Radio's Todd Starnes
By Tom Blumer | June 30, 2013

Any doubt that there is a serious problem with leftists imitating the Thought Police in George Orwell's 1984 and scouring the Internet to silence free expression pretty much disappears once you see what they were able to have temporarily removed from the Facebook page of Fox Radio's Todd Starnes. And while it's a relief that the post has been restored, consider how many others without the Fox host's visibility may be having their posts removed with far less recourse.

Full text of the post, which has since been restored, along with the takedown notice Starnes reports he received, follow the jump (HT Fire Andrea Mitchell via I Hate the Media; click to enlarge in a separate tab or window):
