The 53%

The moonbats who have been turning lower Manhattan into a cesspool absurdly claim to be the 99%. Actually, they are the 47%; that’s how many do not help carry the crippling burden of federal taxation. We the 53% carry these malevolent parasites on our backs.

The looters and moochers wallow in sob stories and demand other people’s money; those who support them take a different attitude. From We Are the 53%:




From Actually, You’re the 47%:




Here’s one more:


Some choose moonbattery. Others choose to be Americans.

    Good stuff.

    (But still, the denizens of Wall Street DO deserve whatever negative consequences that may result from their orgy of gambling with impossibly-leveraged Monopoly money. Their financial shenanigans SHOULD have led to their downfall, not to bailouts with taxpayer money. TBTF, my bodacious behind!)

    You people think you’re so much better than us just because you made better choices and take personal responsibility.

    I knew their so called 99% was totaly exaderated like their rediculous claims

  6. Bob says:

    Clarissa – capitalism does work. My parents died, so did my grandparents (hey, imagine that!) Immigrants all. Disease happens, war happens. Shut up and learn to adapt. Learn to be loyal. I never wanted to leave the great lakes city I was born in – I did – economics was changing. After 35 years of hard work, it really pisses me off to hear whiners. If you use the word justice realize American justice is a permutation of English justice. Get facts before you complain. Life’s not pretty, no one promised anyone that, but a wishful mother. No warranty, implied or otherwise.

  7. StanInTexas says:

    Clarissa, spoken like a true LOSER!

    Can you give us an example in human history of “a system that works for the 100%”?

    Also, how do you “catch” pregnancy?

  8. dmgore says:

    ~ I assume you are only joking and if you are, you’ll find this funny, but in the even you are not, I would think as a woman you would know that you dont “catch” pregnancy. And if pregnancy keeps you from working, thats your CHOICE. No one forces you to have children. If you’re not financially ready, and you cant be responsible for them, you shouldnt have them. If you are, great good for you. Worked out great for us that way.

  9. Bob says:

    To Loa and his entrails. Hard work matters. Noonbe has given me a gift, except my parents for the gift of birth, everything after that is hard work – in spite of societal bias, diseases and adverse conditions. (Hey Clarissa: When has pregnancy become a disease?) I’d see a good GI doc for that colon, my friend.

  10. Hail The Amberlamps! says:

    Clarissa sounds a lot like Gunther.

    Refugee family from hitler and stalin
    he watched them torture his father, and then he passed through a DP camp, and finally to here…

    No English, some illiterate, mostly janitors in a poor inner city neighborhood

    Worked hard as a child as I was going to be the first in family to graduate college in america

    Started working first job at 9 in an inner city neighborhood bagging spices for a hindu shop around the corner. $0.25c an hour

    Worked off and on as a superintendents handy man… collected bottles and dismantled tv and machines for copper

    by the time I was 12 I could fix a #12 steam boiler…
    Fixed watches, and calculators, and all kinds of things… collected bottles.. shared money with family

    with self education in a inner city bronx nieghborhood it into Bronx science…

    Was disenfranchised from college, and cash, so more women and minorities can go

    Had to leave and move… neighborhood got to violent and dangerous

    Been a ride operator, amusement park manager, mosquito commission researcher, pest control, animal control, odd jobs, manufacturing lines, wrote programs for a manufacturer, did accounting, was a glazier, roofer, accounting, did siding… framed houses, brick laying… and a whole lot more including a IT career and signed photography.

    Parents spent my college money, state said no as I was not a protected class.. but not those words since that was before today, and saying it was still an issue..

    So I took my small amount after I took off a year to take care of my grandfather with Alzheimer’s

    Became a fireman, an EMT… deaf in one ear, so signing up for the military was a no no

    Slept on park bench and in aunts apartment living room and attended college as a continuing ed student with the 50 year olds

    Showed my stuff, and was hired before completing by a fortune 10 recruiter…

    Started a career, bet a feminist fruit bat… lost family, life work, savings and more…

    Restarted career consulting and working for small companies

    About 10 years ago, I was no longer eligible for promotions, raises and such as I am not a protected class and they promote over me for race, gender, and social engineering (despite seniority in career, degree, and seniority in years at the job itself here)

    Imprisoned in a super small office… 80 degree heat hurting me every day, segregating me from the others, and exacerbating the medicial condition i have.. isolating me and making aspergers a lot worse. but who fights for the unprotected class?

    Finally got married, we are trying to have a family and buy a house… but at 47… its maybe not possible..

    Even with my working to 1:30 every day after work at more stuff…

    I have only had one vacation in my life for pleasure… it was my honeymoon… I work on vacations…

    I have zero debt…
    ip and art i cant move forward…

    I have no life… and looks like I will never have one…

    but my family has experience
    and despite all that, the experience says

    I am the 53%…

  12. Time for this country to scrape the (47%) barnacles off the hull

  13. StanInTexas says:

    Clarissa, don;t you think that if your 100% fair and perfect society was possible that we would have seen it by now? How many thousands of years have we been around? Tell us what this perfect society is.

    So you are saying that women don;t have a choice about pregnancy, that they are forced into it? Sorry, but you are just stupid. If you don’t want to be pregnant, then DON’T HAVE UNPROTECTED SEX.

  14. Reiuxcat says:

    “somebody should help you when you are young and vulnerable or sick or are laid off”

    It’s called a family. Whether it’s blood relations, neighbors or fellow church members, we all should look out after one another.

    BTW, women do have a choice, it’s called keeping the legs together or adoption if that doesn’t happen.

    Clarissa, what form of government or socio-economic system do you believe would be 100% effective?

    Clarissa, the “right people” will never be in charge.
    When the majority rules without laws someone gets screwed. Look at the way the OWS people are talking.

  23. Artfldgr says:

    your such a sad person, but i will address your no it all nothingness…
    Bob I’m sorry to hear that happened but society should have been there for you / it wansn’t because the money got spent on tax cuts for billionaires
    no… your WRONG clarissa, your listening to the SAME KIND OF PEOPLE AND THE SAME IDEAS, that created all the worst things in mankinds history to be compressed into one century.
    in that century, due to socialism, over 100 million people had been tortoursly worked and starved to death by the ideas you support.
    somebody should help you when you are young and vulnerable or sick or are laid off
    Are you volunteering? will YOU get up in the morning, go to work, then work a second job to pay for Bob until he is on his feet? if not, then all you are doing is saying you want to be a SLAVE…
    of course, your not bright enough to know how that happens… but i hope this will reveal it to you… but i doubt it.
    Who will compel that “somebody” to work for Bob? does bob owe him or her something in return? or can bob be a screw up no nothing and get help from cradle to grave by NOT beint competent, whole and healthy? (like someone i have in mind)
    when you say ‘somebody’ your asking the state to compelle people. what makes you think that the state wont compelle you? your sweetness? your practiced incompetence?
    you tell me… What stops the state from forcing clarissa to do work she doesnt want so Bob is ok?

    in a social justice society you would have medical care and a meaningful job. Like instead of leaving you could insulate houses or construct windmills to make your city a better place
    ah.. tovarish… commrade… i didnt know your a Nazi… but you ARE… or dont you remember Father Coughlin and his paper Social Justice – and the Nazi Christian Front? When he and the nazi’s marched and had a big rally at madison square garden?
    you can go here to read a bit at enclyclopedia britannica:

    we can make a society which works for everybody and makes everybody happy with fairness. We just have to dare to dream
    yes clarissa, cause delusions are a great way to plan for the future…
    We can make? what if WE isnt 100%, then what? Do you plan on having a place for those people who dont want to be cogs in a collective? what do you plan on doing with the devout jewish people who wont bend to such? or the christians? is there a place in your world for the handicapped? how about the elderly?
    please tell me, without that dare to dream bs…
    how do you (the part of WE), plan to coerce the people that dont agree with you to your side? so far, all you have is artifical faked sympathy and hate for others ideas..
    silly me, but thats not even a foundation for a club let alone a society…

    ok.. another question derived from your statement.
    HOW do i force you to be happy since we are going to have a society that MAKEs them happy?
    is it going to tell you what is fun, and what isnt?
    Is it going to remove all the things that are potentially dangerous?
    what is it?

    should i point out that the society you claim to be making has been attempted before..
    its failed every time… and has caused the deaths of millions…
    it exterminated my family almost to the last person…
    it didnt make us happy…

    i feel sad, because a person with dreams and no operative ability or knowlege, cant make a baloney sandwich let alone a society.
    in fact, your not bright enough to know that a REAL Society is self organizing and no one makes it do what a fwe people want (Even with an army of idiots). but that a society, which is contrived by plan, is inseperable in kind from a farm with domesticated animals without the abilty of mind to be free or escape.
    want to know the difference between the wolf you probably admire and paris hiltons lap dog? The wolf is free to fail or succeed… it depends on no other to provide for it, nor does it have others forcing it to provide for it. it has freedom of choice.
    want to knwo the difference between a wild stallion and a drougth horse pulling vacationers around central park?
    the horse around central park has people that take care of it. give it a home, pretend to make it happy. it knows no other life, and so on..
    want to know why your pet dog cant have kids?
    same reason chinese women cant…
    forced sterlization of pets… or cattle… human cattle…

    what you want, and what your going to get is what you think your opposing!!!
    the term nazi, does not mean national SOCIALIST… thats the myth..
    it was slang for Nationalizers… the people who created economica malaise and helped companies merge and become huge, as one huge monopoly is easier for the state to mediate than a half million tiny capitlaist ones…
    and want to know how they got the good people, people like you clarissa, to murder so many and help it along?
    well, if you coud read german, or a translation of newspapers in germany then, you would hear the socialists (both communists and fascists), saying how unfair and cheating the jews were.. they were only 14% of the population but had 40% of the banks and businesses…
    i bet your a feminist clarissa…
    does that disparate impact argument of the nazis sound familiar to you?
    it should, as the feminists copied that…
    as they say they are making communist state.
    “Feminism, Socialism, and Communism are one in the same, and Socialist/Communist government is the goal of feminism.” – Catharine A. MacKinnon, Toward a Feminist Theory of the State (First Harvard University Press, 1989), p.10
    “A world where men and women would be equal is easy to visualize, for that precisely is what the Soviet Revolution promised.” – Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex (New York, Random House, 1952), p.806
    “The Women’s Caucus [endorses] Marxist-Leninist thought.” — Robin Morgan, Sisterhood is Powerful, p. 597

    so your a social justice nationalizer socialist…
    let me guess… you like third way politics and either want soverign democracy as the protesters are screaming for… or what?
    soviet russia called itself a Sovereign Democracy…
    is that what you want? there are only three viable systems on the table, and for the long haul only one is actually viable… the others collapse every time… in fact, this collapse is due to socialism, not due to capitaism… take away the social programs and there would e a whole lot more available…. you dont get that, but then again, you dont get much.
    Sovereign democracy s a term that with regard to Russian politics was first used by Vladislav Surkov on the 22nd of February 2006 in a speech before a gathering of the Russian political party United Russia According to Surkov, sovereign democracy is:
    a society’s political life where the political powers, their authorities and decisions are decided and controlled by a diverse Russian nation for the purpose of reaching material welfare, freedom and fairness by all citizens, social groups and nationalities, by the people that formed it
    live expectancy in russia was higher with the Czars. its now 58… they have socialist medicine, free love, no fault divorce, liberated women and a genocidal crisis from it, and a lot more, as they started adopting the things you want and have partially lived under way back in 1917.

    want to know what you are? your a member of the innocents clubs members of Willi Münzenberg…
    During the First World War Münzenberg was a young left-wing radical living in Switzerland. Talent-spotted by Trotsky he soon became part of the Bolshevik circle around Lenin, as they waited their opportunity to return to a revolutionary Russia. It was to Münzenberg that Lenin turned as the famous sealed train left Zurich for Russia in 1917. “Six months from now we will either be in power or hanging from the gallows” he said.
    uring the 1920’s and most of the 1930’s Münzenberg played a leading role in the Comintern, Lenin’s front for world-wide co-ordination of the left under Russian control. Under Münzenberg’s direction, hundreds of groups, committees and publications cynically used and manipulated the devout radicals of the West.

    Most of this army of workers in what Münzenberg called ‘Innocents’ Clubs’ had no idea they were working for Stalin. They were led to believe that they were advancing the cause of a sort of socialist humanism. The descendents of the ‘Innocents’ Clubs’ are still hard at work in our universities and colleges. Every year a new cohort of impressionable students join groups like the Anti-Nazi League believing them to be benign opponents of oppression, rather than the Trotskyite fronts they really are. The old tricks certainly are the best!

    there is so much i could tell you and show you…
    but you know it all already having been hatched yesterday…

    please… tell me how this whole happyness society wiil work..
    and i will show you that your magic beans are buying exterminations, and rationing, and all the most horrid things.
    for you did not ask if the people making their utopia were angels or devils..
    for devisl woudl rather rule in a hell of their own making / than serve in a heaven of someone elses…
    and dear.. in that hell your a nothing…
    your less than nothing as you have no use to them
    you should do some research… the new people coming in will not praise you for betraying your own people… even if your own people are wrong… a person willing to betray another can never be trusted…
    i suggest you read this and find out where you are / the chatechism of the revolutionary, and the 1869 version by Sergey Nechayev…
    The Relations of the Revolutionary toward Society
    15. This filthy social order can be split up into several categories. The first category comprises those who must be condemned to death without delay. Comrades should compile a list of those to be condemned according to the relative gravity of their crimes; and the executions should be carried out according to the prepared order.
    16. When a list of those who are condemned is made, and the order of execution is prepared, no private sense of outrage should be considered, nor is it necessary to pay attention to the hatred provoked by these people among the comrades or the people. Hatred and the sense of outrage may even be useful insofar as they incite the masses to revolt. It is necessary to be guided only by the relative usefulness of these executions for the sake of revolution. Above all, those who are especially inimical to the revolutionary organization must be destroyed; their violent and sudden deaths will produce the utmost panic in the government, depriving it of its will to action by removing the cleverest and most energetic supporters.
    17. The second group comprises those who will be spared for the time being in order that, by a series of monstrous acts, they may drive the people into inevitable revolt.
    18. The third category consists of a great many brutes in high positions, distinguished neither by their cleverness nor their energy, while enjoying riches, influence, power, and high positions by virtue of their rank. These must be exploited in every possible way; they must be implicated and embroiled in our affairs, their dirty secrets must be ferreted out, and they must be transformed into slaves. Their power, influence, and connections, their wealth and their energy, will form an inexhaustible treasure and a precious help in all our undertakings.

    19. The fourth category comprises ambitious office-holders and liberals of various shades of opinion. The revolutionary must pretend to collaborate with them, blindly following them, while at the same time, prying out their secrets until they are completely in his power. They must be so compromised that there is no way out for them, and then they can be used to create disorder in the State.

    20. The fifth category consists of those doctrinaires, conspirators, and revolutionists who cut a great figure on paper or in their cliques. They must be constantly driven on to make compromising declarations: as a result, the majority of them will be destroyed, while a minority will become genuine revolutionaries.

    21. The sixth category is especially important: women. They can be divided into three main groups. First, those frivolous, thoughtless, and vapid women, whom we shall use as we use the third and fourth category of men. Second, women who are ardent, capable, and devoted, but whom do not belong to us because they have not yet achieved a passionless and austere revolutionary understanding; these must be used like the men of the fifth category. Finally, there are the women who are completely on our side – i.e., those who are wholly dedicated and who have accepted our program in its entirety. We should regard these women as the most valuable or our treasures; without their help, we would never succeed.
    I bet your feminist awareness and uplifting courses didnt mention that 21st rule… as your not a very wealthy person at the top of this new aristocracy… your a disposable cog… and your disposable because your equal…

    without any distinction… what makes you special? existence?

  24. StanInTexas says:

    Interesting point, Preacher Man.

    It shoudl be lost on NOONE that Clarissa wants a system that is 100% fair to everyone, then demands that abortion be avialable. I guess children do not fit into her 100%.

  25. Artfldgr says:

    first comment appears, second one is in moderation? huh?
    i hope i didnt waste my time on this one…

  26. Jay B. says:

    clarissa says:
    Typical liberal. No fact, just “hopes and dreams”. Capitalism works. In a capitalist society, everyone is free. You can work to get some capital and invest, open a shop, do whatever you want. Reward is measured with hard work. Any time you equate reward with “fairness”, you include a higher authority distributing it and that is not freedom.

    Here, let me give you a fine example even you could understand. I have three daughters, thank God for giving me these angels. One has recently moved out of the house with her fiancé and she was taken care of by her parents for food and lodging (ok, I still provide her with plenty of food) until then. Her younger siblings, not old enough to work, do get an allowance from me. Sure, I love them and I give that with pleasure but they get the same ammount each week. They are both still dependant on their parents for their money and they’re still under my supervision as I wouldn’t want them to spend it all on candy. Now my elder, who works for a living, can do extra hours at her job, for extra money if she wants to. She is free to put her money in candy if she wants to, invest it, buy a car, whatever she wants.

    Now tell me, which one is free here? The one depending on daddy government or the one working for herself?

    See how narrow your feelgood atitude is? It’s all based on envy. Get out, find a job. Make a name for yourself. You’ll NEVER be free if you sit down with your hand stretched out, expecting someone else to take care of you.

    Artfldgr, don’r hijack the article. I agree 100% with what you say but make your point and move on without preaching. Clarissa drank the commie-Kool aid. You aren’t going to change her point of view by lecturing to her post.

  31. Alan says:

    Well if you INSIST:

    – Youngest of three kids, older brother died in a freak accident. Dad (US Army 1945-47, tenth-grade education) began hitting the bottle.
    – Mom and Dad, both union members, forced in early retirement while I was in high school.
    – First person in family to even consider college, earned BA at 23. Useless Journalism degree, worked as janitor, Adm Assistant, busboy, telemarketer.
    – Active in church for many years, lived with roommates for a decade.
    – Bought first car at 28, moved 1,000 miles from home
    – Fired from other job, earned MBA at night school at 33.
    – Bought house and second car this year, both second-hand. Never owned a new piece of furniture, mostly self-taught at computers.
    – No wife, no kids, no drugs, no arrests. Credit score ~800.
    – Work in financial aid for a technical school filled with minority single mothers trying to get their lives back together.

    When I read your letter to Clarissa, brought tears. Everything you stated is Truth. The honest to God Truth, about the Big Lie. Lenin called these 99%’rs “Useful Idiots.” I recall my mother 1st generation born American using Grandma’s “Come the Revolution…!!!” When I was young, I asked “What does that mean?” And, from different sources, I got the same message that you wrote to Clarissa. Fact for fact. Bolshevism. This same thing happened in Poland, Ukraine, all of the Baltic countries. I would hear about: The bastard Lenin, Stalin, “Stah-leen”, the blood-thirsty monster, that made Adolf look like a piker. Even Lev Bromstein, “Trotsky”, who was of the fifth category, who was liquidated, when his usefulness to the State, was up; The starvation and cannibalism that occurred when Stalin “collectivized” Ukraine…

    Your essay awesome, as it obviously flowed from the heart. Genuinely caring for your fellow human being, especially, Clarissa. We can only pray that you did not waste your time. That perhaps, what you wrote here, might have had impact on some of those, who are on the fence; That have the courage to venture here to consider forums other than those engaged in the Big Lie.

    Thank you for taking the time to contribute.

  42. TaterSalad says:

    The people on Occupy Wall Street are going after the wrong people by attacking workers and CEO’s of Wall street. The real problem with “debt” is with the Universities that place these protesters at risk and in debt. For instance, take Columbia University. Their returns on investments with “Wall Street” on their endowments within the University was 23.8%. Hypocrites? You bet. Blame them and their salaries and benefits while teaching liberalism.

  43. Jack Skahan says:

    A lot of the examples are just bragging about how they’re hard working; bringing attention to themselves and not to the true problem. It saddens me that none realize how shitty their lives actually are, and that the filthy social order that exists in this society has no intention of improving the quality of life for the masses. Work hard pays off, but what do you do when the amount/quality of work does not correlate at all with how much money you make? After all, money is everything in this fucked up world.
