Okay, it's time to clear the air about the Occupy Wall Street slogan "We are the 99%." They're not. Oh, they claim they do, but let's take a look at this logically.
First, let's take a look at the 99% portion of the equation. I'm certainly not rich, so I would fall into the 99% the Occupy Wall Street Leftists talk about. Yet, I certainly don't agree with their multitude of stances, ranging from free college to more regulation of Wall Street, an entity that is already regulated heavily. Plus, I think some of their ideas are utterly ridiculous and unrealistic. The Occupy Wall Street types certainly don't speak for me now, and I doubt they'll ever speak for me in the future.
Now, let's look at the 1%. That 1% includes people like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and George Soros, people who tend to lean in the same direction as the Occupy Wall Street types. To hear the OWS people talk, the 1% is nothing but rich fat cats, but they don't seem to mind some of the rich fat cats. Heck, most of them probably own some piece of technology or clothing made by a...capitalist! To put a finer point on it, every single one of those protesters who owns an iPhone, an iPod, or some other technological "must have" is a hypocrite of the highest order.
It's clear I'm not one of the 99% types. However, I am one of the 100%.
The 100% of people like me who think Occupy Wall Street is a massive joke.
