Tax the rich: An animated fairy tale, is narrated by Ed Asner, with animation by Mike Konopacki. Written and directed by Fred Glass for the California Federation of Teachers. An 8 minute video about how we arrived at this moment of poorly funded public services and widening economic inequality. Things go downhill in a happy and prosperous land after the rich decide they don't want to pay taxes anymore. They tell the people that there is no alternative, but the people aren't so sure. This land bears a startling resemblance to our land. For more info, www.cft.org.

Election was a vote to tax rich. Now, watch the cartoon.
Wisconsin cartoonist Mike Konopacki is back in this nice animation that attempts to pass along what is obvious to most of us, except those dense hapless conservative voters, we've got a wealth gap problem.
