Entitled Moron Revolution by genkistamps Entitled Moron Revolution by genkistamps
So you took out student loans to pay for your BA in Philosophy. But you dropped out. Now you're in fucktons of debt with a degree you didn't even earn and couldn't use even if you got it. Who is at fault? Clearly not you!

THE RICH PEOPLE. YEAH. IT'S SO THEIR FAULT FOR YOU NOT BEING ABLE TO PAY OFF A STUDENT LOAN YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TAKEN OUT BECAUSE YOU COULDN'T HAVE EVER AFFORDED IT.

Seriously, looking at the pictures of the "I am the 99%" people was like looking at a gallery of the most entitled fuckwads on the planet. Don't take out loans you know you can't afford to pay back and don't blame people for your poor life decisions. DUH.

NOTE: I know some situations you can't predict. Family member gets cancer, bills stack up, shit happens. I'm talking about taking out loans to buy houses you KNOW you can't afford and using credit cards to buy shit you don't need to survive and KNOW you can't afford. Self made disasters if you will.

If you don't come from a rich family then what the hell are you supposed to do to go to school in this country? Not going to college is basically a death wish for success nowadays. I'm so tired of seeing people blame the middle and lower class for their financial problems as though everybody would be rich if they just "made better life decisions" or worked harder, all the while defending the crooks who got us in to this mess to begin with. If a person is laid off of their job, it certainly isn't due to their own "poor life decisions".

If you think the Occupy movement was simply begrudging the wealthy for being wealthy, you don't understand what it was about at all. Wall Street was the reason the economic collapse of September of 2008 happened in the first place out of complete and total blind greed and not giving a damn about how much collateral damage happened so long as their bottom line was fat and happy.

Of course not all wealthy people are crooks and slime bags, but the ones the Occupy movement was against absolutely were.

This is exactly what I think is the problem. I knew a lot of kids like this in high school. They think that they're entitled to whatever they want. They don't realize that they could be more successful if they worked harder!

Yes, of course. Go to school and get a job. But school is so expensive. Take out loans. Saddle yourself with debt you're going to spend your entire life paying off. Meanwhile, most of the people on wall street got there by way of favoritism and nepotism. Such an awesome stamp.

If I'm reading your tone correctly, THANK YOU. I'm so tired of this "BOOTSTRAPS!!!" mentality of blaming those with financial problems for having them because of "poor life choices" and other nonsense. For example, a friend of mine works for freaking PIXAR as a character animator and yet she still can only BARELY swing her student loan payments because they're almost $700/mo.!

Wall Street execs are the majority reason why the economic crash happened in September of 2008, but people like the OP never seem to acknowledge that fact or the fact that the protests weren't against said execs because they're wealthy but rather because of their irresponsible, reckless, predatory, unethical business practices. Yes, some people are in the situation they're in due to preventable circumstances, but not the majority. :|

Interesting discussion to be found here. 

I'm sure a lot of people did take out bigger loans than they would ever be able to repay, but I'm leaning toward the side that says we're in this mess mostly because of the 1% whipping out their wallets in front of each other just to see whose is bigger.

"THE RICH PEOPLE. YEAH. IT'S SO THEIR FAULT FOR YOU NOT BEING ABLE TO PAY OFF A STUDENT LOAN YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TAKEN OUT BECAUSE YOU COULDN'T HAVE EVER AFFORDED IT." - So what should these people have done? Not go to University because they don't come from a rich family who can pay to put their kids through Uni? Luckily I live in Scotland and we don't have this primitive system of paying literally thousands to go to University.

It's so funny to me that so many Americans continue to cheer on the people who care only for greed and don't give a good fuck about anyone who isn't in their social class. No wonder the rest of the world thinks you're a country filled with morons. Iceland did the right thing by putting the people in their country, who willingly contributed to the crash, in jail.

More like you worked hard and got that BA but the p.o.s. CEO sends his jobs overseas to make a bigger profit, rather than hiring domestically, becuse then he's actually have to pay his employees what they are worth- which would mean either firing other employees (the usual tactic) OR paying himself less so that he's actually closer to what HE'S worth (NEVER gonna happen.)

Good lord, all the typos.

Also, like to add, I'm not claiming this happened to me. I never went to college. I also don't blame rich people for my problems directly, but I know full well that if they weren't so inhumanly greedy then things would be better. These days people don't care about doing what's right, they just care about doing it cheaper to make the most profit possible. That is what is turning this country to shit. We offer subpar products, because they're cheaper, we hire labor over seas, because it's cheaper, we do all this stupid crap, and it's all so that big assholes can get bigger. They do not need that much money. Their families will never be able to spend that much fucking money. Meanwhile people are suffering IN THIS COUNTRY, because of a lack of jobs, when really, it's a lack of hiring. The jobs are there, but employers would rather be slave drivers than pay a person what their work and time is worth, and even if the pay rate is right, the hours are complete shit because the greedy sonsofa' won't pay up for insurance.
It is disgusting, and greedy people ARE to blame for it.

P.S.

Meh… the fact the wealthy gained so much wealth and yet our (in the US) wages remained stagnant the last 30 years is pretty jacked up. I am not saying we should bail people out, but a CEO is not worth 800 times as much as a desk worker. There was an economic boom all through the 90s-2008 with the information revolution (with the exception of the tech bubble bust) and the "hard working" shareholders gained and everyone else stayed the same while inflation rose. 
And the economy collapses, and unemployment rises, and nobody wants to get a minimum wage job because they are usually not worth it… Most have little room for promotions, and yada yada yada, unemployment checks pay more because they have risen with inflation, but normal wages haven't, so people want to do nothing… 

Basically something has gotta give…

It probably means:
a)
invented a computer program back in the 70s/learned how to program back in the day, worked for google or microsoft "full time (screwing around in the office doing actual work, which 90% of the time is fixing there own mistake, maybe 3 days a week)" and then became shareholders
example

b) 
inherited a business… from your grandpa who had good ideas, then sent the jobs to China and increased the profits by decreasing the wages of "entitled useless employees".
example Mark Rockefeller 


c) joined a consulting group and then showed a company how to increase their profits by evading taxes, and getting into emerging markets, and got elected CEO; did things… made more money
examples 
Mitt Romney
Marvin Bower 

ORRR use your power as CEO to manipulate world markets in your favor 
example
George Soros (he literally crashed the British Pound on September 16th 1992… forcing them (the Bank of England) to withdraw from the market; and made 1 billion pounds in one day by short selling the UK's currency (he is lucky it was "legal", 100 years ago that probably would have been an act of war lol))

d) sold drugs and killed people and intimidated your way to the top, corrupted officials in Latin America, and the American Southwest, committed crimes against humanity so that people would be afraid of you… and do most of this in a country without the death penalty (MEXICO) so that way, the worst that can happen is you get arrested on like what 20,000 counts of murder, is get life in prison, and then you get to pay off a guard, or a judge, or something, and then "break out"… 
examples
Joaquin Loera (he is on Forbes)

So, ya real hard-working individuals we should all aspire to be. I guess Mitt Romney and Paul Allen aren't that bad (I mean… they didn't kill people or almost destroy nations)… but the rest… lol.

Ya, and… do you know how much a stockbroker working on Wallstreet with differentials makes (200-400k and some of them screw their individual clients because they also get paid by the companies for selling their stocks)? Anyways, lol, I am not occupying wall street, I am just saying that most extremely successful people didn't get there by being honest or caring at all about people they don't know.

Oh boy. Opinions everywhere. It seems the ones implicitly disagreeing with you are simply saying 'you're wrong' instead of describing WHY you're wrong.

I sort of agree with you. And most occupiers are stupid. However, there is a minority of non-idiotic occupiers, Unfortunately, the intelligent occupiers are few and far-between. Like intelligent One Direction or Twilight fans.

The 1% are the ones who made "50 Shades of Grey"a bestseller.
The 1% keep making "Transformers" sequels and hogging all the advertising space.
The 1% make reality TV shows about themselves.
The 1% publish article about celebrity scandals when there is real suffering in the world
The 1% make getting married, having babies and getting divorced seem glamorous.

So who's really making poor life decisions?

The Hollywood types, who are in the 20-50% range, and not the 1%. The 1% are professional athletes and doctors and lawyers and government workers and the like. Not reality TV producers that, you should remember, get very small budgets in terms of TV production.

The OWS movement is from people who want to leech off of the people who would be negatively affected by the income redistribution, as opposed to the multi-billionaires who will hire lawyers to get them OUT of the wealth redistribution government programs. They don't think these things through and just want free money for nothing.
