What are your thoughts about this 1 vs 99%
Just to accept these terms as legitimate is to have already lost. There is no place for '1% VS 99%' in a free capitalist system. We are all in this together economically, people of all incomes are important to the proper functioning of the system. There must necessarily be liberal vs conservative (or Democrat vs Republican) type conflicts as we try to optimize the system. These are merely conflicts of ideas. But 1% vs 99% turns us directly against one another as people, and that only harms all of us. I made about $22,000 last year, but I only consider myself to be in the 100% - of Americans.
I believe it was J. Paul Getty who offered the solution of how to springboard one's self from the 99% into the 1%
(now, don't quote me on Getty's solution---but you get the picture)
Here's his solution of springboarding into the 1%tile(works everytime)
1. Get up early
2. Go to work
3. Strike Oil
What the occupiers "want" is no less than the puriest form of Communism!!!!
