You may recall during protests against evildisgustingrichassrichpeople a few years ago, some of the smelly hippy protesters were holding signs declaring themselves to be "the 99%" of America that for some reason resents the people who got to the top of the heap by their own effort.
Well here's a fun factoid for you: the people holding those signs are, in fact, the 1%. If you have a few minutes, read this fine piece by Willis Eschenbach and then come back and tell me how not getting 99 weeks of unemployment benefits is some kind of hardship.
We have met the 1%, and he is us
