Skip to comments.Irony: OWS Now in Top 1% in Income

One of the top complaints about wealth distributions holds that the vast majority of the people of the country are excluded from the vast majority of its wealth. Considering the "plight" of all of those 20-somethings at the various occupiers, one could be deluded into believing the truth of the 99% mantra.
But what if that wasn't true? Considering there are many branches of the group, let's take a look at its main one, occupying near Wall Street, in New York. Seeing how the occupiers are using other people's food and bathrooms and some living in tents (with others still in their studio apartments or parents' basements), there shouldn't be a need for a lot of money? After all, how many iMacs does one mob need?
Well-- quite a lot, apparently. The group has been furiously fundraising since its inception in September. I know that they'll need a legal defense fund for all of the cases of violence, rape, and arson, but how much could that cost?

It seems that every generation has to repeat the same cycle.
Some will learn from it and become wiser, some will not.
Socialist states have the largest disparity between the haves and have-nots.
It's actually the plan.
IMHO, that’s the best description/definition of the “occupy” movement I’ve seen so far. Short and simple.
The plan is for the 99% to be dirt poor serfs, this middle class stuff has to go in their minds. The 1% rulers and oligarchs will be superwealthy. That is socialist utopia.
Another irony the first several protesters that were arrested in the NY pisspotti park OWS, police reports indicate that the average protester comes from a family residence of at least 300,000 dollars. So hows that capitalism doin for you, BRATS!
On a lighter note Bloomnbergs girlfriend works for the firm who owns pisspotti park and Joe Bidens lawyer son also works there, m m m m m.......... small world.
Rich trust fund babies know how to have others pay for their efforts in damage control to try to prevent consequences for their parents’ global undertakings against the USA.
Resume starving the beast.
