ARM STIRRUPS! And so many random holes in places I didn't think holes would form. This piece really cracked me up. Love it!
@riggssm It pretty much demonstrated that the 99% should actually be subdivided into additional percentiles. Namely, "giant twats" and "the disengaged".
If anything I learned from '24' is true, then there's a secret Illuminati boardroom somewhere where The One Percent sits watching a wall of monitors as this whole Occupy movement collapses on itself. All according to the plan, of course.
@La Cieca I hope that was a joke....
@davetar You have a right to fucking hate Black Friday all you want, but that doesn't give you the right to care how I spend my money, okay Dad? Now I wish I'd actually gone Black Friday shopping. Just for spite.
Overall I've felt that the Occupy movement has been a great start for a new direction. When people peacefully gather around large banks and other areas of power, the general message makes sense: 'We, the 99%, are real individuals who won't be so easily dismissed by those who abide within an elite bubble. We are not an abstraction or numbers on a spreadsheet.' Something like that.
This is a message I support. However, now we're seeing instances where the protest is becoming more of a nuisance for everyone, 99%ers most of all. Do you think "the 1%" gives a flying fuck about some weak propaganda at Ikea or shopping improv at Target?
