Ironic number considering the current as*hat occupying the white house garnered 52.87% of the votes cast in the last presidential election.

None of the people featured on your link look like his kind of people.

I'm 55 years old. I paid for my college education by working hard in school so I could be awarded a couple of small scholarships. I paid for the rest of my college expenses with my savings built up by working during high school, working through college and a student loan which I paid off by working hard.

I had a career for 20 years in a field that I could see was not going to provide a living in the future. I retooled and started a new career. It's still hard work, but my company values me because I work hard and am useful.

I still rent. I am paying off my wife's student loan. My daughter attends a Christian school because I won't put her in the godless, Marxist public schools. It's expensive, but worth every penny. I don't know if I'll ever be able to retire. Who cares? I'd rather be busy working. It makes me feel useful.

I am the 53%.

Read some of the comments attached to the photos. Some smartasses mock these people.

Of course, when the SHTF, we'll be the ones with the means of protecting ourselves and our families. The smartasses will be the first to be victimized. Poor fools.

i’m the 10% ... the 10% that pays 87% of all taxes

i’m also the 0.4% ... that pays almost 40% of the bill

the numbers:
* top 1% of filers pay 38% of all taxes
* top 25% of filers pay 87% of all taxes
* 140m people file
* 310m legal citizens, 20m+ illegals, 330m total
* 25% of filers == 35m ==> 35m / 330m == 10.6%
* 1% of filers == 1.4m ==> 1.4m / 330m == 0.4%

i’m also sick & tired of paying to feed the ungrateful, mooching asshats that demand even more from me while vilifying me daily. personally, i say cut the welfare after 6 months. if they starve, the problems will sort themselves out quickly... one way of another (hell, if the left can start demanding heads be cut off... why can’t i demand cutting the flow of free food i’m paying for?)

My Dad paid for my military acadamy HS education because he recognized what public school was doing. When I was 15 I went to work as a roofer every summer until I was 18.

I then took that money and paid for Community College and a car to get there. (A sweeet ‘65 GTO!) My Dad was a barber, my Mom stayed home with us kids. It was understood that if we wanted anything more than 3 meals, clothing, a roof and a bed we’d need to earn it. So shove THAT up your wazoo you derelict hippie freak! I am part of the 53%!
