• 53 Percent.

    He's a former Marine. He's worked 2 jobs, lacks health insurance, and put in 60 to 70 hour work weeks for 8 years to pay for college. He hasn't had 4 consecutive days off from work in 4 years, and yet he doesn't begrudge Wall Street. He wants the 99 Percenters to suck it up and "get back to work." He's a part of the so-called 53 Percent.

    He doesn't realize that he's one unexpected illness, accident or emergency expenditure away from joining the ranks of the 99 Percent. Like most Americans, he's only one or two paychecks away from disaster.

    I don't begrudge this man, and what he's done to get where he is in his life is admirable. But gloating over how you're not whining like those other sods while you yourself are only two steps away from joining them leaves a bad taste in people's mouths.
