    i thought you lived in ny.


    $1850 gets you a studio in this down, a lame one bedroom if you are lucky. My rent is close to $3000 a month. I am definitely not the 1% (but i am trying to get there).

    And it really is irrelevant. on one hand, these people get bashed for being failed poor people who need to find a job. And now they are bashed for being successful???


    What the heck is wrong with you man?

    Rather amusing that some folks don't understand the concept of "99%".

    The Al-Gorerering of the protestors is quite hilarious.

    "WHAT?? YOU MEAN EVERY-SINGLE-ONE-OF-YOU DON'T LIVE IN UTTER SQUALLER AND POVERTY?? YOUR POINTS ARE MEANINGLESS!!!"

    What's even more amusing is how frustrated the folks that are using these tactics unsuccessfully have become.

    They hate it that this lame line of propaganda isn't working. It's driving them crazy and it's funny to watch.

    We're on step 2 right now.

    Step 1 was "Pfft, they don't even know what they're protesting about".

    Edit: Actually, I'd say we're almost on step 3, with all of the violence from the police we've been seeing.

    I hope that term ("Al-Goreing") becomes insanely popular. I will feel an odd sense of pride.

    Yep, that seems pretty accurate. I'll see if I can rep you for bringing in the Gandhi quote. I might have to spread some around.
