An ‘I Am the 53%’ Open Thread
Reading through the “We are the 53%” Tumblr, I can’t help but notice that more than a few of these people would benefit from the government stepping in against the people who are the cause of their economic distress. “Making your own way” when the deck is stacked against you instead of calling on the government to get rid of the game-rigging seems illogical to me.
I half expect to see someone with a sign that sounds like this:
“On my way home from my fifth job, I was mugged and my wallet was stolen. When I got home, I found out that the bank foreclosed on my house, even though I don’t have a mortgage. But do you see me calling the cops or suing the bank? Hell no! I make my own way in the world. I don’t need government help. I am the 53%.”
Consider this an open thread.
