We Are the 99 Percent

This is in response to Erick Erickson and his pointless blog: I love my country, I love being American. I am not against capitalism, but I AM against corporate welfare for companies who made poor business decisions while I’m working my butt off trying to find a job. I deserve better than this, 99% of Americans deserve better than this. I am the 99% #OWS

If I might add: FUCK YOU, Erick Erickson!

We are suffering from environmental pollution.

We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we’re working at all.

We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything.

We are the 99 percent. Brought to you by the people who occupy wall street.

Why will YOU occupy?

I hate when this happens!

Via: MY sinchew.com

A trainee at an agriculture farm had his penis severed after falling on the blades of a moving grass-cutting machine at the Pulau Kerengga permanent food production park last Saturday.

The incident occurred about 12.15pm when the 26-year-old victim, said to be a slow-learner, fell off the machine after climbing onto its rear without the driver’s knowledge.

Cosmopal Sdn Bhd director, Mohd Amir Hafiz Zainudin, said the trainee was employed at the farm more than a month ago and was only given light work, like gardening and feeding the goats.

He said the victim was with other workers at the farm when he left the group and went after the grass-cutting machine.

“The driver of the grass-cutting machine only realised the incident after hearing the victim screamed in pain,” he added. (yeah, you think?)

The victim was sent to the Marang Health Clinic, but was transferred to the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital, Kuala Terengganu, for treatment.

Meanwhile, the victim’s mother, who requested anonymity, when met at the hospital, said she would take legal action against her son’s employer for negligence.

“Before I allowed my son to work there, I was told that his job was to feed the goats,” she added.

She said although doctors at the hospital were able to re-attach her son’s penis, there was no guarantee that it would function as normal.

She said the victim, the second of four siblings, was her only son.

Thousands of protesters fill NYC’s Time Square

Via: AP

Sandra Fox, 69, of Baton Rouge, La., stood, confused, on 46th Street with a ticket for “Anything Goes” in her hand as riot police pushed a knot of about 200 shouting protesters toward her.

“I think it’s horrible what they’re doing,” she said of the protesters. “These people need to go get jobs.”

These people need to go get jobs’  – BRILLIANT IDEA; how come no one has thought of that before?

In Private, Wall St. Bankers Dismiss Protesters as Unsophisticated

Via: New York Times

Publicly, bankers say they understand the anger at Wall Street — but believe they are misunderstood by the protesters camped on their doorstep.

But when they speak privately, it is often a different story.

“Most people view it as a ragtag group looking for sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll,” said one top hedge fund manager.

“It’s not a middle-class uprising,” adds another veteran bank executive. “It’s fringe groups. It’s people who have the time to do this.”

~~~

It will ultimately thin out, Wall Street types insist — especially when the weatherturns colder. They see the protesters as an entertaining sideshow, little more than flash mobs of slackers, seeking to lock arms with Kanye West or get a whiff of the antiestablishment politics that defined their parents’ generation.

“There is a view that it will be a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing,” said one financial industry official.
