We Are the 99 Percent

I'm not endorsing them, just reading their statements.

Lazy fucks. If they want change they should learn to snipe and start taking out CEOs.

I'm endorsing them. The only way we can help everybody is to socialize. Yes socialism. That dirty word.
Nice site.

This one made me pause.

Skalie I feel for that Master's degree one because you need to work your ass off to get one.
The ones I don't feel for are those that never tried and have been welfare all their lives.
These people are trying to make something out of themselves.

So you would be the 1% then?

You are one job away to being in the same situation do you know that?

I just think they are as bad or worse than the people they are organized against. Chomsky and Soros getting involved proves that to me.

I'm right there with this. But I am lucky. I make decent money now but at a cost of working 24/7. Yes not a moment to myself.
The problem lies in the acceptance that it's okay to work more than 40 hours a week. The acceptance that work time is more valuable than watching your children grow. The acceptance that it is okay for health insurance to be only affordable when an employer helps out and you are lucky when your employer can. The acceptance that you are asked every fiscal year to contribute more to your benefits.
The acceptance that you will suck your bosses dick to keep your benefits.
Like I said before. You are just one job away from realizing that hundreds of people are applying for the same job you want that decent jobs are scarce in America that if one day you grow a set of balls and question your job's authority you may end up working more hours for even less pay and no benefits so you better shut the fuck up and deal with it because you are one of the lucky ones.

I make decent money now. And it's really not a hard job. I like what I am doing. I'm probably a 1% too.
But my daughter is thinking of extending her Navy contract because there are simply no jobs that would pay her the same rate and she don't want to be in debt from taking 4 years of college. Did I mention she was the top 25 in her high school?
My son and daughter in law both have full time jobs that pay moderately decent but more than the average pay both are managers and yet they barely scrape by every month and without our free baby sitting and our generosity they would be fucked.

We can say we must simply work harder and the choices you have made decide your faith.

But now it's like we are a bunch of dogs and our master is serving us dog food. The only choice we have is to eat that shit or starve. Or run away and rule the world with no baggage behind you.

Our choices are limited.

shes in the military... honorable discharge and she wont have to pay much if anything for school


Posted by Large Filipino on 10-01-2011 04:32 PM:

Yea but she tasted freedom in her own apartment. She only has two more years left. School should be set but the military has been renigging on some of their promises lately. The GI bill will soon become a thing of the past.

Most of them use the library. On a regular work week the library computers are packed with one hour slots and people waiting for one to open up. I'll take a pic when I get a chance.

sorry LF those pics are not coming from the library


Posted by Brett on 10-01-2011 06:06 PM:

going to the library to do stupid shit on the internet is also not a valuable use of time. Either way, a quick skimming seems to confirm most of these people probably have home internet access.

I want to empathise with them. I have no love for Wall Street and am certainly not well-off by any measurement, but they really did take a whiny-ass way to express themselves.

So having home internet means your not struggling?
Sure it's emo but what do we tell them?
How should they improve themselves?
It's just reality. Yes it's a clusterfuck and nobody cares.
That's really the entire point here.

This is what I think we want.
We want to be able to take out a loan with a realistic interest rate that's truly fixed and bind by a contract that truly guarantees no interest rate hikes.
We want to be able to have the option of not having a credit card and not have your life handicapped because you have no credit score even though you are entirely debt free.
We want to be able to afford health insurance a thousand dollars a month is not cutting it.
And we want to work at a job where your employer needs you more than you need him.
Gotta leave now. Heading downtown.
Maybe they'll be more people today at that occupy Denver rally...
