While the "99%" Occupy, The World Shudders

The right says: ungrateful, pompous and thankless protesters. The right says: if you want more, that's fine...go earn it.  The right wants you to keep more of your hard earned money and insist you decide how to spend it and where it goes. Let's end the 'woe-is-me-ism' bondage and work, earn and give.  Redirect your passion to creating wealth, not destroying's hard work...but worth it in the end.  

Hey Protesters, "Justice" is such a relative term, eh?  Reconsider your position? Ready to work, earn and give?

If you earn over $47, 000....YOU are the 1%. (1% relative to the real 1%...not the gimme gimme protesters in New York)

The Global Rich List calculations are based on figures from the World Bank Development Research Group. To calculate the most accurate position for each individual we assume that the world's total population is 6 billion¹ and the average worldwide annual income is $5,000².

Below is the yearly income in percentage for different income groups according to the World Bank's figures³.

(Ouch protesters...ouch...) 

*2 facebook friends, 2 links...thanks.


  1. This is amazing information.

  2. Those income figures would spread thinner, given the 7 billion population now ... unless of course, the total income went up proportionally, which is unlikely.


Think of how you can make your point and be respectful.
Try to keep cursing to a minimum; with thanks.
