Being a religious person myself, I'm fairly certain that these people who screw over their fellow man will get theirs in the end.
Let us accept that God exists. But what if he didn't? Well, we would have to invent him, because he is necessary for the individual / society, for whatever reasons.
Corporations are people, my friend

Their jobs, are ludicrous. They work at corruption. They can eat some humble pie, I want no money, no bankers, but high level, high educated committees and councils of citizens, half men and women, we are the ones who manage things.

Really it depends on how much gray matter you have in your brain that determines if you understand a movement, or feel the need to simply paint an entire movement by the few wackjobs that your programmers instruct you to understand.

A banker left a 1% tip in defiance of 'the 99%' at a Newport Beach restaurant the other week, according to his dining companion and underling who snapped a photo of the receipt and posted it to his blog, Future Ex Banker. (Update: the blog is now offline.)
In posting the photo, the employee gave some background on his boss and the receipt:
Mention the “99%” in my boss’ presence and feel his wrath. So proudly does he wear his 1% badge of honor that he tips exactly 1% every time he feels the server doesn’t sufficiently bow down to his Holiness. Oh, and he always makes sure to include a “tip” of his own.
The "tip" of his own in this case was to tell the server to "get a real job." Pleasant.
After reading this, it really pissed me off. How could someone take out their frustrations against a group by targeting a waitress? Why? This is messed up on so many levels and made me sick to my stomach reading it. This kind of action is EXACTLY why the 99% are pissed off because of these sociopath elitist bankers like this guy.
The guy who wrote the blog was with this banker during that lunch and was also mad about what he witnessed and posted the image online for all to see. (below)

In their heads it's justified because she was entitled to a tip.
As long as it's justified by an entitlement, a need, or something they deserve or see as fair it's okay to commit any number of crimes against someone else.edit on 26-2-2012 by Pigraphia because: (no reason given)
