After watching some video's of the occupy Wall street protests, I noticed something that completely disgusted me. On the balcony above the crowds
could be seen around 20 to 30 well dressed men pouring and drinking champagne as they toasted the crowd and laughed.
In France, the royalty said let them eat cake as the revolution was threatening their palace gates.
Have you ever watched a fighter smile and taunt the other fighter after being hit in the head?...as if to say, "that didn't hurt".
A sure sign that it hurt! It appears that some of this is really starting to get to them (the 1%). Don't let the arrogance fool you. Slowly but
surely the walls are being torn down. I had an interesting conversation with someone with NYBOT this weekend...I will share once I get permission. I
am reasonably sure that I will get permission. My guess is that he will not be working with them by Monday.
I can tell you that the effort is having profound affects on many who protect the 1%. I can't wait to share this little nugget.

In the United States at the end of 2001, 10% of the population owned 71% of the wealth and the top 1% owned 38%. On the other hand, the bottom 40%
owned less than 1% of the nation's wealth. According to this 2006 study by the Federal Reserve System, from 1989 to 2004, the distribution in the
United States had been changing with indications there was a greater concentration of wealth held by the top 10% and top 1% of the population. A
PBS report by Solman on Aug. 16, 2011 now found that financial gains over the last decade in the United States have been mostly made at the
"tippy-top" of the economic food chain as more people fall out of the middle class. The top 20 percent of Americans now holds 84 percent of U.S.
wealth., the 2nd 20 % holds 11%, the third 20 % 4 %. The following figure shows the actual distribution of wealth in the US. The 4th 20% (0.2%) and
the Bottom 20% (0.1%) are not visible:.........."

We can thank Cain too, as he has declared himself an enemy of liberty.
First of all, the "99% don't represent me, they represent themselves and only themselves, if they had a clear list of wants, I might agree with
them, but they don't.
As for the line on Mr. Cain? All I can say is wow. This is the kind of world you want where someone speaks their mind or disagrees with you is a
"enemy of liberty"? Guess that makes me an enemy of liberty too. Now we know where free speech stands in this.
I don't know, I kind of like cake. If I could switch between a good Red Velvet with sour creme icing, Wedding White Sheet cake, a good German
Chocolate and an occasional Ice Cream cake all with lots of hot coffee or hot spiced tea I might just be happy. It would be nice to keep the house,
electricity, water, internet and have the cake delivered when I wanted it.
Of course they are laughing, and will continue to do so. Why not?
The protesters are quite laughable and will obviously accomplish nothing.
What they shouldn't be laughing at is the current state of the markets. The Wall Street types are committing hubris. Their own incompetence and
arrogance is bringing them down.
But I guess if they need to take a break from that reality to laugh at a bunch of clowns in the street, so be it. For their sake, i hope it's not a
As to the clowns, you guys are certainly keeping me in stitches, too...
"Mindless chanting and spirit fingers will vanquish our enemy!!!!!!!"
"MINDLESS CHANTING AND SPIRIT FINGERS WILL VANQUISH OUR ENEMY!!!!"
This movement is so childish and goofy, I just don't see why its adherents think most of America cares about their hipster fantasies. They don't,
but enjoy your free festivals. As usual, people with real jobs are going to have to clean up behind you and solve the problems you cause.
