How fitting. This shows the great number of people sitting with their mouths open waiting for free stuff from someone else.

Sack, you could replace the 1% with "Dayton and the majority party" promoting unionization of day care and forcing middle to lower class folks to pay higher taxes on cigs to cover the etab blunder.

An enormous maldistribution of wealth isn't compatible with either democracy or social stability. It will also - already is - ruining our economy.

Sack could replace "the 1%" (which has become the 2% lately BTW) with "The Government / Taxes / Mandates / Obamacare" It''s be far more honest that way.

Actually, the 1% seem to be operating the machine that traps the food for the others.

I have more taken out of my paycheck every week by the government than by anyone else. More in taxes withheld than I voluntarily spend at the gas pump, that's for sure. Much more than any CEO takes from me weekly.

(If you get medical insurance from work, how much bigger would your check be if your employer wasn't paying it for you? If you don't have a credit card how much more do your products cost to cover swipe fees? If you don't have a mortgage, how much of your rent goes to pay your landlord's mortgage interest)

This 99% and 1% stuff is for the birds. Me, I'm part of the 100%. Stop sowing the seeds of division.
