I studied hard in school, went to a good college and didn't major in basket weaving. Then I got a entry level job, worked harder, got promoted, paid my bills, educated my kids at my cost, volunteered in my community and donated to charity. I didn't cheat on my taxes or pay my bills late. I've had financial ups and downs and have weathered them by cutting back, getting a 2nd job and cutting back some more. I've never defaulted on a mortgage or declared bankruptcy. I've taken care of myself via diet and exercise and have good health to show for it.

I'm not part of the 1% and never will be.

I'm part of the (insert whatever you think applicable) percent who is tired of the part of the 99% who feel entitled to everything while working for nothing.

The 99% are not the American 99%.
First you've got unions organizing buses to bring people in.
They are pushing for totalitarian communist government in the name of economic justice. Anytime you hear economic justice they are talking communism.

My sign would say "I paid my own way and earned everything I have, you should think if doing the same and not expect everyone to pay for your pathetic lives".

Disappeared to?

At every stage in life and for the rest of my life, there was and will be a 1% up there with much more than I have. Their existence has nothing to do with either my enjoyment of my circumstances or my ability to shape them.

I am the 99%.

When I was 18 I found a job easily. Looks like nowadays it is a lot harder...
