We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.
Brought to you by the people who occupy wall street. Why will YOU occupy?

The Wall Street protesters are lazy vermin. Same old meathead, ignorant college kids and the usual collection of liberal victim groups. Lets hope the Democrat party associates themselves with these idiots.
And how will occupying Wall Street inconvenience anyone? The trading is done electronically. The Internet works both ways. The banks go on without you. You are not noticed when you are there, and you are not missed when you are gone.
tools and fools.
what a bunch of loons.
The same people who are supporting Obama’s corporate welfare and handouts no doubt.
The same people who think its totally normal people who are attending Obama $25,000 per plate fundraising dinners no doubt.
The same people who would destroy the US economy if they had the power.
They are the %0.99 and a awful waste of O2.
Where did they come up with the “1% of the people have 99% of the wealth” statistic. I have a hunch that it is a sound bite, not a statistic based on fact. Has anybody fact checked it?
They should have included, “We are the innumerate.”
As bad as things are, I think we’re still a long way from seeing 99% of people kicked out of their homes. And I doubt that most of those “Wall St. occupiers” have ever owned a home.
So... Is the government supposed to “GIVE” them all of this stuff, and cure all of their grievances?
....They want YOU to pay for it!
They are the FSA(free shit army) personified, combined with various other Leftist causes. Someone could refer to them as Communists, and they wouldn’t be wrong, IMO.
I WON’T occupy Wall Street. I’m busy. I’ve got to clean house, cook for my family, keep on working a little bit to help keep the wolf away from the door. Then I attend church most Sundays; which we need to do, unless, that is, we want to wake up and find ourselves listening to the Muslim call to prayer five times a day on the loudspeakers on every street corner in our little towns. I accept their freedoms; but they gotta respect mine. If so, we can get along. If not, go home where it’s already like you like it (provided you’re a Muslim). No reflection on redreno, just commenting in general. - Twinkie
and, yet, most of the time you see these losers, they’re playing on electronic gadgets
I’ll bet the EPA and other gov’t regulators sent recruiters to these protests.
You forgot the barf alert.
The 99%? Really? I guess they’re taking a page from a small Russian leftist group that fooled everyone by calling themselves a majority, or bolsheviki.
Probably something the idiot in the wh said
All of them (or almost all) are young people, who haven’t
seen and haven’t been through what many of us older folks
had seen and gone through, without complaining to banks, to
the government and to Wall Street. Times are hard.
The WSJ editorial asked yesterday WTF, and what is it all
bout, what do they want? And rightly so.
As always, I empathize, feel their pain, but...
99% of what, exactly?
The two classes are not the Labour and the Capital, the rich and the poor, the proletariat and the bourgeoisie, or the workers and the elite. The two classes are the Debtors and the Savers. “The easy money camp” and “the hard money camp”. History reveals the story of these two groups, over and over and over again. Always one is in power, and always the other one desires the power.
1. Debtors - “The easy money camp” likes to spend (and redistribute) money it did not earn, either by borrowing it, taxing the savers for it, or printing it. They like easy money because it is always and everywhere constantly inflating, easing the repayment of their debts.
2. Savers - “The hard money camp” likes to live within their means and save any excess for the future. They prefer hard money (or in some cases “harder” money) because it protects their savings and forces the debtors to work off their debts.
1789, the French Revolution, “the hard money camp” had been in power since 1720 when John Law’s easy money collapsed, and starting in 1789 “the easy money camp” killed “the hard money camp” and took back the power. This is the way “the easy money camp”, the Debtors, usually take power... by revolting against the hard repayment of their spending habits.
Only nine years later, 1797, easy money collapsed once again (as it had just done in 1720) and a new French monetary system based upon gold was again reinstated. This is the way “the hard money camp”, the Savers, almost always regain control: when the easy money collapses. On very rare occasions and only under highly favorable circumstances (like moving to a new continent!), “the hard money crowd” takes control by physically separating from “easy money” and declaring independence from the Debtors.
The American Revolution. Yes, the Constitution mandates hard money.
So just to repeat for clarity: Hard money regimes almost always end in bloodshed, when the easy money camp slaughters the hard money camp to avoid hard repayment terms. And easy money regimes almost always end in financial suffering when the easy money collapses.
The Debtors and the Savers - FOFOA
College dropouts? Otherwise, when are they attending classes?
