Yeah, it's actually the 9.9% but those with useless overpriced liberal arts degrees don't understand what the decimal point means.....

As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing."
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.
In the shadow of the steeple I saw my people,
By the relief office I seen my people;
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking
Is this land made for you and me?
Nobody living can ever stop me,
As I go walking that freedom highway;
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me.

“i hope we can change this!”

The people who 'decided' that was the quote of the year are the same people that send out democrat emails to news outlets.

Somehow, "We are the 99%" does not carry the same eloquence as "Ask what not your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." A pity that there are so many who believe so sincerely that unnamed others are obligated to provide them with whatever they lack. What a difference a half century makes!

The 99% slogan is an EMPTY SUIT slogan. OWS does not represent even 20% of us. We don't identify with the lazy, law breaking nuts, who shut down the NYC Cafe and put 91 employees out of work. It's nothing but propaganda by the paid lamestream media claiming the emperor has clothes when he does not. It is pure hogwash and empty of truth like Obama's electioneering promises that sound good but lack anything of value for people.

Incidently, Valerie Jarrett, the Chicago slum landlord and tacky real estate agent with connections to terrorist country Iran is the pants behind the man. VOTE THE RIDICULOUS MAN MARRIED TO EGOTIST MICHELLE OUT OF OFFICE, IT'S TIME TO STOP HAVING TO SEE HIM CRITICIZE EVERYTHING, NOT WORK BUT PLAY GOLF AND TAKE 17 DAY VACATIONS UNLESS CALLED ON IT. Even then, he knows how to turn it into a spendulous project costing taxpayers money for two separate trips to Hawaii.

The next president must be strong on both the economy and national defence - the two go together. Obama is a DISASTER, neglecting the unemployed, arming Iran with military drones (in the news) and spending money we don't have. The U.S.$ is now just counterfeit money. No one wants it anymore under Obama.
