Afternoon distraction

By now the entire world knows about the occupy wall street movement and the massive protests that have been taking place all around the country. How can you not know when it's on tv everyday and with what happened at the protest in Oakland,California the other day. What we don't get to hear enough of is the plight of the true victims in this American "economy". I'm talking about the top 1%. The same people who only control a measly 43% of the nations total wealth. Just because they've seen their income increase by 275% since right before Ronald Reagan took office doesn't mean that they aren't hurting. Thanks to our socialist president there may be a slight increase in taxes on millionaires and billionaires. I don't think "president" Obama realizes how much money it costs to by a private jet to fly your butler on while you're flying on your own newly renovated private jet. He and a lot of other people in this country just don't get it. Luckily for us there are a group of upstanding citizens that understand the indignities that the wealthy among us have to face. They are the 1% and they have a message for the rest of you losers out there.
