Divisiveness.
Over and over again I see us vs. them. Rich vs. poor. Haves vs. Have Nots. The only difference is 99% of that 1% is that they worked hard. They EARNED it.
And the "99" want to take that away?

We need to be 100%. Because even at 99, there is divisiveness, there is a separation. There is a gap.

Americans need to be 100%.

Unless you support separation and divisiveness. Then go about your "99" and see how that goes.

We need to stand together.

Would you drive over a bridge that was 99% done?
Would you eat prepared blow fish that was 99% done?
Would you get eye surgery from a doc that had a 99% success rate?
Would you trust your kid to a sitter that was only 99% safe?

Mods, feel free to throw this puppy in the rants if needed.

You are absolutely wrong.

The 1% didn't earn anything but our hatred.

They profit off the blood and sweat of the people, and we the people will have our day.

We're drawing lines in the sand and it's clear which side you're on.

Enjoy the 1%, I'm sure that your masters will be happy to look after your every need.

Touché! What you say is very true. I don't think it is so much as the 99% not wanting anything to do with the 1%. I'm thinking the 1% not wanting anything to do with the 99%. I like how you broke that down though

I am part of the 1%. Because "they" need me. We are linked. "They" can't survive without me, I can't survive without them.
Hate them because they have more than you.

Very telling.

Thank you.

Ask yourself why there is so much division, when there should be unity.

Who's preaching division?

And how did they earn that money? They make money off of our
money. That's all they do.They don't contribute goods or services,
and they give nothing back. HOW have they earned that money?

Right! Better to be 100% enslaved. Don't fight back. Just take it.
It obviously doesn't make a damned bit of difference to you. But
what about your kids? Your grand kids?

I think the idea is that the 99% want it to be 100%.

There have been decisions made in the last decade that benefit the top wealthy in the world. It is a matter of fact. You can look through bailouts, pork projects, or just wasteful spending and see this.

I think the idea, is for governments to start representing the people again and not the people with the most money.

But I might be wrong...

Please extrapolate. I don't understand. Working for people that pay you is wrong? I don't understand.

‎...What about the 53% of this country who don't have the time to sit and protest in various cities because their parents aren't paying their rent? What about the 53% of people in this country who work hard, and pay taxes, and aren't asking for a government handout(pay for my school, pay for my healthcare, pay for my living arrangements...etc). You call yourself the 99% but you don't speak for me. Talking about how evil capitalism is when you're doing so on your Apple computers and iPods, and sipping your damned latte from Starbucks. The "99%" can go screw themselves.

That is the funny part. Money isn't anything. It represents goods, services,, labor, etc. But because of inflation, leveraged dollars, fiat currency, it doesn't represent any of that accurately anymore.

So to create paper money, might make you richer, but the world poorer.

We need to go back to a time where money was an actually representation of the total work/products/resources being produced....


For Instance:



A company can make businesses decisions that will give them more 'money' but by doing so, lower their actual production and limit the number of people employed.

This would make their books look good, but hurt the overall economy. Thereby setting their own company to suffer in the future.

Economics in this day and age is short sighted, In my opinion..

Then lets get some politicians in office that'll represent us instead of those select few?

Yes I would because it is better than the 70% shape it is in now due to cut backs from the 1%

Part of what pisses me off so much is that they denigrate the very system that allows them the liberty to spew their idiocy.

Screw capitalism they say? Damn the corporate machine? Does that include Twitter and Facebook and Above Network LLC? Does that include Apple Computers, and the "Green" industry that can't survive without government handouts? Does that include the various coffeehouses they spend money at, and vandalize in the same visit?

I think the 99% are all but one percent of the total population of stupid in this country.

I do not think you are apart of the %1, you may think you are but your not. A couple million dollars is nothing now days. They own more then half the USDA dollars. Unless you are a billionaire you are not apart of the %1. As for your taxes, you really think you earned the right to pay hardly any because you worked? Do you not use the city streets? Do you not need the government?

I get what you mean though, its hypocritical to preach peace and then divied people into 2 groups. I am all for the rights of the %100. The people witch wage war are disconnected, evil oculist, or just dont give a # cause they have been brought up to think a certain way just as most of us are brain washed by the tv starting at 6months old.

Hua.But. . . but. . . but. . . they "deserve it". They are the gimme-gimme-gimme crowd.


The idea, the concept of working towards a goal is as alien to them as diet soda is to Michael Moore.

not i

aww the 99% collectivism at its finest no individual identities just the 99%.

sorry same rap as communism and socialism the funny part is they are running to that 1 % with their hands out

just like over 145 millions of americans with their hands out to the government and who would perish if it ever failed.

some people lead some people follow and ows is nothing but lambs being led to the slaughter begging someone else to come save them.

yeah neo that sounds familiar "the government is here to save you".

nah i want no part of that idiocy and when i sit there and see the kinko signs and see the unionists all they are is a bunch of rebels without a clue.

dance puppets dance with joy and beg them to pull your strings even more.

be your own master and slave to none
