I have had jobs and payed taxes since I was 13 all the way until now in my mid 20s. I am the 53%.
Woot! Another tax payer! If only we were 99% tax payers!
I will also likely work until the day I die, since the 1% have taken away all social safety nets, lobbied for lower taxes on themselves and higher taxes on me, and increased the price of goods while never upping wages for me and the rest of the 99% over the last 30 years.
As someone whose worked for more than 30 years. Salaries have gone up. I started working for the minimum wage of $3.15 an hour. I was ecstatic when it went to $3.25.
I am the 53% and still very much the 99%.
I'm not anti-99%. But clearly I have no idea what the OWS people are asking for. Except to be in charge. I'm not in favor of that.
If they want to be in charge, they should build an alternative to banks, or wall street, or whatever. As a famous queen once said, "Let them eat Bitcoins."
