There is no doubt that the 99% movement is strong and growing. This thread is meant to be a theoretical list of who you as a supporter (or non-supporter) feel are one of the 1%.

Please name at least one or more people, corporations, etc. Whatever comes to mind when you think of the 1%. Thank you.

Multi-national corporations
Lobbyists

Military industrial complex
War.

That is my 1%, It goes much deeper, much much deeper. Lets just say, to me, the entire fractured system we live in is the 1% that needs to be eradicated.

But If i were going to arrest some people? Harper, and Flaherty to start

The revolving door politics, is also the 1% to me. How can it be that we have a former employee of a multinational corporation, being the regulator in government for that company? Or -ANY- politician that is an employee for special interests.

I mean, some of those on the list deserve to be there, but are still guilty of questionable acts in their company. Gates came up from the bottom,
But i mean, who needs billions of dollars?
Isn't millions enough? 1 million is enough to buy everything you need, and want, in a year, unless you want A LOT..

Which people do i guess.. I have nothin. Good computer. Girlfriend..

Yeah so ostentatious - he really flaunts it.

He's not even close to being on the list.

First rule of the moneyed class is NEVER discuss money, wealth or prices.
It is considered crass and bad manners.

There are about 1000 in the world and 400 of those are Americans.

BILLIONAIRES.

In the USA - The 400 at the top own as much as the 150 million at the bottom.


The 400 richest Americans are worth almost $1.4 trillion, while record numbers join the poverty rolls and Democrats punt the tax-cut vote.


The super-rich got even wealthier this year, and yet most of them are paying even fewer taxes to support the education, job training, and job creation of the rest of us. According to Forbes magazine’s annual survey, just released, the combined net worth of the 400 richest Americans climbed 8% this year, to $1.37 trillion.


For example, Charles and David Koch, the energy magnates who are pouring vast sums of money into Republican coffers and sponsoring tea partiers all over America, each gained $5.5 billion of wealth over the past year. Each is now worth $21.5 billion. www.csmonitor.com...

If anything the 99% vs. 1% can be seen as a PR statement. The 1% is more easily comprehended, then the .0001%. The top percent are really those who control the Wealth. To me, personally, the top "percent" are owners of the Federal Reserve. I mean, they literally control the value of the US Dollar, and profit off of it. The F.R. is the true Godhead of parasitical corporations.

"The Primary Owners of the Federal Reserve Bank Are:

1. Rothschild's of London and Berlin

2. Lazard Brothers of Paris

3. Israel Moses Seaf of Italy

4. Kuhn, Loeb & Co. of Germany and New York

5. Warburg & Company of Hamburg, Germany

6. Lehman Brothers of New York

7. Goldman, Sachs of New York

8. Rockefeller Brothers of New York

After that, you need to really hold accountable those who abused the laws, bribed officials to change the laws, or were elected but took "bribes" (ie Lobbyist donation) to further corrupt the system for their own eventual gain. The corruption goes from the Federal Reserve into almost every elected office (State and Federal, this includes the Courts as well). From that, you can go down a level to those individuals who commit Insider trading, CEO's earning 100s of Millions while laying off 1000s of employees, so forth. Anyone corporation that profits off of dead peasant policies would be a prime suspect.

Do you see where I'm going with this?

The 1 percent label is not basically an end all be in regards to wealth. So all you Doctors, honest lawyers, small business owners, so on... You're safe, because you're technically part of the 99. It's basically the corrupted segment of our population that has sucked away the livelihood of our society through corruption that defines the 1 percent.

Well said.

Especially about the 99% who have happened to do well for themselves, even if it means they're millionaires, ie doctors, honest lawyers, business owners, etc.
I think, sadly, however, that that is forgotten. Some OWS ppl attack anyone who has money, and lots of people with money are against the movement because they think the movement is against them.
Which only brings us back to the root problem: working against one another instead of together.
