So when will the protestors change their slogan to "WE ARE THE 50%!"? Answer: Never, they'll continue to think they speak for everyone.
Jwalidea...if you cannot figure out if you are in the 1% or the 99%, then that is a whole other issue...
300 million people in this country, and these knuckleheads claim to have 297 million followers ??? What a laugh.
mudbug: I am not a percent. I strive every day to think, speak, and act only on BEHALF of myself and actively maintain my natural human rights. A group of people of ANY percentage claiming to represent me or speak on my behalf is an infringement on those rights.
My concern is these people claiming that they speak for me. They have never asked me what I think and they will never ask because they don't want to know. Therefore they do not speak for me. Their platform is largely the product of smoking too much weed. Free college education? Who will pay for it? Cancellation of all debt? How many will lose their jobs if we do that? Most of what they want sounds like utopia...the kind you find in communist countries.
I for one support the protestors. If you spend some time researching the financial meltdown, subsequent bank bailouts, rubber stamping mortgage foreclosures, and the banks going from collapse to pay back in less then 2 years and are not concerned then you are blind.
Look at history, the vietnam war was protested and subsequently influenced policy and is was done by the young people (or as mentioned by a previous commentator as those "smoking too much weed"). Those graduating from college and not able to find jobs with living wages, no insurance and see the scam called Wall Street screwing everyone. Good for them!
