The 99% Is Really The 29%

November 4, 2011   |  

I was having lunch yesterday and I spied a San Jose Mercury News with the giant headline “The 99% Rise Up In Anger”. Of course, I lost my appetite when I saw that.

The 29%

Despite the shoddy journalism inside, I thought: Hmm. I don’t make as much as the 1% (reportedly over $350,000 a year according to the last census) so I guess I’m technically part of the 99%.

But I’m not, because I do not support these protests or the protesters.

I am a libertarian and do not support crony capitalism, where government gives money and favors to private enterprise, but that is not what I’ve been hearing from these people. All I hear is gimme, gimme, gimme.

I worked very hard, and continue to work very hard to get where I am today, and anyone who wants to steal my hard work from me deserves no support if you ask me.

Nonetheless, there is a small number of Americans who support them, apparently, they aren’t really familiar with Occupy wants.

Ah well, maybe once they see a few more non-violent protesters smashing windows, tipping over dumpsters, breaking car windows, looting and forcing workers to lose wages by shutting down ports etc, that number might get even lower

The 99% is really more like 29%

A new poll from Quinnipiac University finds that more Americans view the Occupy Wall Street protests unfavorably than positively.

Just 30 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the protests, while 39 percent do not. Among independent voters, the spread is 29-42 against — a warning sign for Democrats who are trying to bring the movement into the mainstream.
