    We get up at 5 AM and work until 10 PM or later. We're used to not getting up to pee when we have a position. [When working the trade.] We don't take an hour or more for lunch break. We don't demand a union. We don't retire at 50 with a pension. We eat what we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plate, we'll eat that.

    You are going to get a lot of hate from the liberals for saying that.

    Typical ignorant comment quote texted from that highly inaccurate letter written from someone quite out of touch with reality.

    I'm the 99%. I am smarter, better at multitasking, and have a better degree than you. I get up at 5 AM, I work until 10 PM, and I make people's lives better. I barely have a chance to eat lunch since I'm making phone calls to ensure that my patients get approved for their procedures, checking up on post operative status of patients, calling to ensure prescriptions have been filled, and making sure my assistants, hygienists, and receptionists are handling everything OK. I bring in patients that are fearful, in pain, crying, and angry, and they leave restored, happy, and healed. I treat patients, I take out the trash, I clean sinks, I micromanage the receptionist, two hygienists and two assistants at once, and I make sure my patients receive the best care possible.

    I worked hard to get to where I'm at. I don't stand up in my ivory tower and make accusations of the poor, nor identify myself with corporations, individuals, and organizations that are unethical. I make the CHOICE to be a motherfucking ethical person, to make the world a better place, and to help people every single day, to do the motherfucking right thing. I treat my patients the way I would want to be treated, the way I would want my mother to be treated, whether they are rich, poor, Republican, Democratic, black, white, gay, straight, Buddhist or Ba'hai. I make the world a better place, and I am helping the rest of the 99%.

    What the hell are you doing, aside from parroting talking points? Obviously not even making original arguments, since you're borrowing someone else's.

    You may critique his message, but on what basis do you compare yourself with him? You say you are smarter and have a "better degree". Assuming you do not have specific knowledge of the RJ member, your statement has no basis. You sound like an immature, emotional child.

    Liberals aren't just full of hate and greed you know. Their smarter, as this poster said, they care about the poor more, as this poster said. Their better business people, even though they have never run a business. They know everything about everyone.

    So you're just shooting from the hip. That's fine. You probably wouldn't want to put yourself up against some of us. Then again, maybe you're dumb enough to go for it. LOL

    Oh man your a real know it all. I stand by the quotes I posted because I believe in them. I posted them to give people something to think about, they can agree or disagree, I dont really care. Your obnoxious behavior is unnecessary. Maybe you should stand for something instead of just bragging, but of course thats what liberals do.

    The people that embrace this message are being completely destructive, as opposed to the constructive healing and reparation of our country and listening to each other. As always, it is "I've got mine, now GTFO."
    How can you hold your fellow Americans in contempt? How can you hold the position that only you are the ones that work hard? How can you assume that liberals don't run businesses, don't own guns, aren't generous, and don't love this country as much as you do, if not more?

    How can they? because they can—especially when you have hoardes of nutcases crowding the street demanding your downfall. How can they assert that they are the only ones that work hard? Same reason why the crowds assert that everyone in corporate America is blinded by greed and are overcompensated. Obviously, there are people that fall in these categories, but adding a disclaimer diminishes the effect, doesn't it? As for the last point, I don't think that assertion's ever been made. What a lot of people don't realize is that probably most of the people who work on Wall St are "liberal."

    You make good points. In a sense, those points never would have come up if the OWS protests never did. I made that last statement due to a couple other threads I had been reading here on the boards.
    I am not quite sure that the points are made from a Republican vs. Democratic, or Conservative vs. Liberal stance however. I was assuming just people who have, versus those less well-off than themselves. Or at least that's the way I interpreted it.

    Not really, because I think he's making it up. A little while ago he was offering 10 million dollars or some such figure to anyone on RJ with a good idea. If he's working those hours it's because he loves it, not because it's some horrendous onerous task he is fated to do to survive.

    Here's the full rant:

    http://dailycaller.com/2011/10/28/traders-talk-back-to-occupy-chicago/

    We are Wall Street. It’s our job to make money. Whether it’s a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn’t matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. I didn’t hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000 and everyone’s 401k doubled every 3 years. Just like gambling, its not a problem until you lose. I’ve never heard of anyone going to Gamblers Anonymous because they won too much in Vegas.

    Well now the market crapped out, & even though it has come back somewhat, the government and the average Joes are still looking for a scapegoat. God knows there has to be one for everything. Well, here we are.

    Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you’re only going to hurt yourselves. What’s going to happen when we can’t find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We’re going to take yours. We get up at 5am & work until 10pm or later. We’re used to not getting up to pee when we have a position. We don’t take an hour or more for a lunch break. We don’t demand a union. We don’t retire at 50 with a pension. We eat what we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plates, we’ll eat that.

    For years teachers and other unionized labor have had us fooled. We were too busy working to notice. Do you really think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping? We’re going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4 months off a year and whine just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid for building the youth of America. Say goodbye to your overtime, and double time and a half. I’ll be hitting grounders to the high school baseball team for $5k extra a summer, thank you very much.

    So now that we’re going to be making $85k a year without upside, Joe Mainstreet is going to have his revenge, right? Wrong! Guess what: we’re going to stop buying the new 80k car, we aren’t going to leave the 35 percent tip at our business dinners anymore. No more free rides on our backs. We’re going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a garden hose in our driveways. Our money was your money. You spent it. When our money dries up, so does yours.

    The difference is, you lived off of it, we rejoiced in it. The Obama administration and the Democratic National Committee might get their way and knock us off the top of the pyramid, but it’s really going to hurt like hell for them when our fat a**es land directly on the middle class of America and knock them to the bottom.

    We aren’t dinosaurs. We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive. The question is, now that Obama & his administration are making Joe Mainstreet our food supply…will he? and will they?”


    This is possibly more amusing -

    Dozens of photocopied McDonald's job applications were reportedly thrown from the Chicago Board of Trade building and onto Occupy Chicago protestors earlier this week, according to Chicagoist


    But ddkj - you do realize of course that there are more medical professionals than finance professionals that make up the 1%? It's 16% medical professionals and 14% made up of finance professionals.

    So their best idea for America's 5-million plus unemployed is a job at McDonalds? Minimum wage and no benefits... what a great vision for our country.

    Someone has to work those jobs. If people aren't willing to pick themselves up to better themselves then those are the jobs that they will work. Thats the life they chose for themselves.

    If you dont like the way things are run in this country why dont u leave? They still have the programs you want down in Cuba. Why not move there and you will be happy.
