One sizable loophole in the Federal Tax Code is TAX EXCLUSION INCOME. It is time to do something about this unfair tax revenue placed disproportionally on small business & especially the self-reliant. The President is correct we are all in this mess together. It is time to correct the inequity of Tax Exclusion income for some rather than for all workers earning income & paying taxes on all received income. There is no reason for this inequity especially after the President many request for equity.

Everyone should adjust their thinking accordingly, get over themselves, and let the wealthy do what the hell they want because they are Job Creators.

They are likely graduates of good schools and universities where they likely studied hard to achieve their goals. They have probably spent a great deal of their time away from their families as they developed a career. The janitor is probably a high school dropout, who didn’t have the skill, knowledge or talent (perhaps opportunity, though with all the grants/aid available that’s hard to believe)to get out of the Bronx, to move somewhere to improve his children’s chances of success. There is no reason for someone who has been brought up to earn $30K should “have” to live in the Bronx if they don’t want to live there, and LOTS of people succeed who’s parents were janitors – I know I did. My dad worked as a union laborer for the garment workers union until they drove the manufacturers out of business with unreasonable demands. He ended up (at 55 years of age with 2 children at home/in school) working as a janitor for the Bd. of Ed, in a non-union job, to help his family, until he died.

Do they want a flat tax? Do they want more regulation of Wall Street? They can also get more of the 99% of the country they believe they represent behind them if they could better articulate exactly what they want from their government. They can become a very powerful group during the 2012 election year.

We can start with the corrupt Washington D.C.. The ones who make it possable for the beast to enslave us.

They allow the 1%, the board members etc. to decide who gets what. Thus, the members vote themselves a 3 million dollar salary, while deciding their janitor deserves only $30,000 a year. Thus one goes home to a mansion in a beautiful neighbor, while the other to a government project apartment in the Bronx, where he send s his children to failing schools. Where they are being educated to take their father’s place as future janitors when dad retires.

You wouldn’t quote the Enquirer, a US sensational tabloid, would you?
All the photos taken by people I know or know through others are showing people doing art, protesting peacefully with senses of humor, collaborating, planning, cleaning, and helping each other.
Don’t buy into it! The defamation of the protestors is what the 1% wants. Think about it – it’s going to get cold in NYC really soon…those people care enough to be there. The least we can do is not spread gossipy magazine crud about them.
