(via The Greatest OWS Protest Sign Ever | The Big Picture)

You can tell this isn’t a Tea Party rally because there’s not one misspelling in that sign.

Succinct.

*This* is a sign.

TWO OH SNAPS AND A WAZZZZZUP.

This marine made these cops look like fools especially since everything he says is true all the protests have been peaceful with no reason for violence against them.

MOTHER :: GRANDMOTHER :: WIFE OF 34 YEARS :: VOTER :: COLLEGE STUDENT :: & AS OF JAN 2011, CONVICTED FELON

My “crime”? After years of suffering an incredibly painful illness and being  REFUSED BY ALL DOCTORS because I had no insurance, I became BEDRIDDEN AND SUICIDAL. I ORDERED PRESCRIPTION PAIN MEDS ONLINE and got my life back for the first time in almost a decade. Until last NOVEMBER 2010 when a 20 MAN SWAT TEAM with automatic rifles broke my door down and TOOK ME TO JAIL in handcuffs. All for LESS THAN A MONTH’S WORTH OF PILLS, which had a doctor given me would have been a non-issue. I am now a FELON FOR LIFE. I had no previous record.

I WAS NOT POOR. I just could not afford the ASTRONOMICAL $ REQUIRED BY ALL DOCTORS I contacted to start their testing.

I WAS ENTRAPPED BY CORPORATE GREED.
I AM THE 99%

The Occupy Wall Street protests which began in NYC just over a month ago went global this weekend—and across the nation, hundreds of protesters were arrested as cops clashed with demonstrators in Chicago, Phoenix, Denver and Raleigh. And in Toronto, Dr. Cornel West—who had appeared in solidarity with OWS protesters two weeks ago—was arrested at the Supreme Court steps.

Worked ages 14-17 to “save for college”. Became independent at 17 and left home.

Accepted in pre-med program, but opted for less debt and different major(s) at another school.

Less debt?? Graduated with 75,000K in debt, despite holding two jobs the whole time.

Graduated. Dozens of interviews: *overqualified*?!?!?!?

Started a business this year, I work 70+ hours a week and still cannot afford health insurance. I give SALLIE MAE EVERYTHING I EARN

If I didn’t have a food business, I wouldn’t have food to eat. If I didn’t live with a friend, I’d be homeless. 

But as a small business owner, I look “lucky”…..

How will I ever have a house? A HOME. A family?! American dream? - Must be dreaming it.

I am the 99%
