Food For Thought: We are the 1%

The main basis for Occupy Wallstreet was that 1% of America held 90% of the wealth. The main complaint was that the 1% will do anything to keep their money away from the 99%. The 99% are everyday working people, who don’t necessarily live like a celebrity, but can live semi-comfortably, even if it isn’t always easy. If you think about it. We really are part of the 1%… America is part of the 1% of the world that has 90% of the wealth, and most Americans will do anything to keep their wealth away from the rest of the world. Before we go getting mad about our situations maybe we should be thankful for the fact that we have clean water, a roof over our heads and food to eat.
