A degree in liberal arts does not entitled you to a job in that career field , some times you have to drive a truck. there will always be winners and losers in life, what made this country great, was wanting that big house on the hill and millions in the bank, and I am happy for those that have it These people do not want a job , they want the job that they want.look around the world the entitlement society does not work the individual must make he or shes way in life, adapt, adjust, and overcome, or become extinct.

SHAME ON YOU PROPAGANDIST

Break down of the Occupy Wall Street people.

Traffic on the Occupy Wall Street site averaged about 400,000 visitors a day during the sample week (October 7th), which represents more than 10% of the population. 1619 people completed the survey.

Age

Not surprising, nearly 2/3 of the protesters are under 35. But one in three is over 35 and one in five is over 45.

Racial/Ethnic background

81.3% of respondents considered themselves White, 1.3% Black\African American, 3.2% Asian,.4% Native American Indian, 2.9% Mixed, 7.7% Hispanic, and 3.2% considered themselves some other group.

Education

Only 7.9% of respondents lack at least some college.

27.4% have some college (but no degree), 35% have a college degree, 8.2% have some graduate school (but no degree), and close to 21.5% have a graduate school degree.

Employment Status

70% of respondents had jobs. 50.4% worked full time. 20.4% worked part time.

Only 13.1% are unemployed.

Income

47.5% of the sample earns less than $24,999 dollars a year and another quarter (24%) earn between $25,000 and $49,999 per year.

71.5% of the sample earns less than $50,000 per year.

15.4% of the sample earned between $50,000 and $74,999.

The remainder 13% of the sample earn over $75,000 with close to 2% earning over $150,000 per year.

Politics

27.3% of respondents considered themselves Democrats, another 2.4% said they were Republican.

Interestingly, a very large proportion of the sample, close to 70.3%, considered themselves Independents.

Cordero-Guzman concluded that the 99% looked like the 99%.

The one way they did significantly differ was in gender. 67% were male. 30.9% were female and 2% preferred another gender designation.

92.5% of the respondents either strongly or somewhat agree with the protests. Over 91.8% believe the movement is likely to grow.

since you've already started calling names (fool), you have already lost the debate. your government has brought these bad times up on us, so government is not the answer, buy insuring loans , to people with no credit history, and no down payment. created the housing bubble,
and the movement will not grow, because sooner later children grow up. as of today, cities are already starting to throw them out. all they want is anything they can get for free, look at greece, italy, the liberal mindset is based in a dream land, not fact or reality. this movement will fall to the wayside. I hope they turn the fire hoses on them, maybe that will wake them up to reality, and clean up their squalor, 18,000 jobs opened up in north dakota, all kinds of jobs in texas, a conservative state, what's that tell you, as I said, these people don't want jobs, they want the job they want......

Economic fairness is a little black kid growing up to be president, Economic fairness is being able to become rich from your ideas, Economic fairness in the natural world, is animals adapting to there surroundings by natural selection,so adapt and adjust to your surroundings, or be become extinct, just like nature intended.

FIGURES! Leave it to Morgantown to find people so opposed to equality! You're really stupid if you believe that anyone can be rich simply by WANTING to be rich. Everyone wants to be rich! But who gets the jobs that make them rich? Only the rich kids! You can have 100 people in a graduating class and only the richest person is going to get the job that makes them successful in life while the other 99 are going to be bagging groceries or flipping burgers. And it's your pompous attitude and ignorance that keeps it that way, believing that anyone and everyone has a fair chance at high financial success. No, dipshit, socioeconomic status is inherited.

so if socioeconomic status is inherited, what about Bill Gates,Mark Zuckerberg, maybe your family did not make the right choices so you would have something to inherit, so don't cry about what you do not have, adapt, adjust, and overcome. Or sit in the corner and cry because someone has more toys than you. one mistake your family made was not telling you,( you are not special), and I am not in total agreement with the pro abortion people but I understand that sometimes someones socioeconomic status dictates that a abortion is a necessary step, but in your case, it should just have been a choice, because you use words like dipshit in a debate, YOU LOSE!!!!!
