Go ahead and occupy, you pitiful, hippie bums. The winter winds will soon chase you back into your hovels where you will no longer annoy us.
You can’t touch us anyway. We are the elite. We are entrenched, immovable and unshakeable. For what we consider peanuts, we provide lives of luxury to your needy legislators and, in return we reap the equivalent of caviar from the legislative favors that are bestowed upon us. It’s not by accident that our after-tax incomes soared by 275% between 1979 and 2007.
You may think we only control one party, you absurd little fools. The hidden truth is we proudly control 100% of all the capitols in the country, all the governor’s mansions (as well as Jerry Brown’s flat), and the White House too, no matter who the occupiers are. We are the untouchables who live by a different set of rules. We are too big to fail and too big to jail.
We also own and control your media, your sports teams, your entertainment companies, your food and gasoline providers and most of your homes.
So, don’t screw with us.
We are the 1%.
