I keep seeing videos of people chanting "We are the 99%".
A lot of the videos are from conservative media. So to be fair, I went over to cnn.com and watched a bunch of videos there. Not much better. Not at all.
Warmed over hippies, sociologist majors, art majors, tattoos, piercings, dreadlocks, black fists, people demanding that the government pay for their stuff, whether it be home repairs, student loans, healthcare. Young people with nothing better to do expecting to be taken care of, and ne'er-do-wells. Disgusting!
I think I finally figured out what that means. Either they are 99% of the dregs of society gathered togather, or they mean that 99% of the people gathered are the dregs, and 1% of the people gathering are ok.
Whatever they mean, I can tell you I'm not part of that "99%". I slogged my way through college, working part time through college while also raising my kids, made loan repayment a priority and paid them off in a couple of years, and now am the sole wage earner with 5 kids, earning much less than 100k and paying private christian tuition for my kids.
<Disclaimer: I have no problem with any college majors. If you enjoy art, I'd encourage you to be an art major. But do it because you enjoy it, not because you expect anybody, much less the government to give you a job.>
<Disclaimer2: I may agree with a couple of things that they are saying, some of the things about banks and corporations, it doesn't make the disgust of them any less>
<Disclaimer3: I know this may not be friendly and conducive to a social forum, and if not, feel free to delete it, I will happily abide by the rules because I'm just that way and...well...I'm not part of that 99%. I just am so disgusted I just can't keep quiet anymore.>
