The One percent
The other day I was driving down 1-75 to my work in Dalton, GA. A man passed me in a late model, decked out, shiny, champagne gold truck—either a Ford or Chevy. On his back window was the bumper sticker, “The 99%.”
I don’t know if this driver (I’ll assume it was a man, which I know is unfair), doesn’t understand the 1%/99% distinction made famous by the Occupy Wall Street Movement. I don’t know if he is being funny, or ironic, or trying to turn their distinction on its head, saying, “You people who call yourself the 99% don’t know who the real 99% are.” But if he is trying to portray himself as a victim of corporate greed, his choice in rides belies that message.
