The 99, and other key percentages.


Obviously there’s been a lot of discussion about the 99 percent, the 1 percent, and why there’s a gap. Some seem to think that the high unemployment rate is a result of these wealth inequalities; that’s possible, but not consistent with international data. But I think there are a few other percentages that are relevant in this discussion.

For example, there’s the 84% – the percent of Americans who have shopped at Wal-Mart in the last year.
Related to that, there’s the 60% of products at Wal-Mart that are imported.

The 90% of clothing in the US that is imported is also a big factor, because I’d say at least 99.9% of Americans have worn clothing in the last year.

And when 95% percent of American households own a car, and at least 99% of those cars use gasoline, it becomes important that 60% percent of our oil that is imported.

Now, the 1% undoubtedly had to do with the creation with the circumstances that made these other percentages possible. Nonetheless, it is important to remember that it is in fact the majority of 99% also make decisions daily that continue this state of affairs, and they can do more to contribute to the advancement of the American worker through changing some of these habits than they could through even the most earnest protesting.

Maybe its just bad luck on my part, but pop sure as heck expires. A few times now I’ve gotten a Pepsi that tasted like I was drinking dirt and perfume mixed in. I’ve also seen opened pops with mold floating on top of the liquid. Blech.
