Bye, Bye, iPad, iCried

Is the person who padded off with my iPad part of the 99% have-nots? Hard to imagine it was a 1 percenter, who could afford to own a helipad, let alone an iPad.

Do people in Occupy Wall Street’s hyperbolic 99% not own iPads, while those in OWS’s equally simplistic 1% are the only ones who own iPads?

In no way am I part of any economically advantaged 1% the OWS provocateurs have created as a bogeyman, yet I can’t see eye to eye with the blur and caricaturization of America that is the collective conceit of the 99%.

The improvisational shallowness of the ramshackle OWS movement resembles a not-so-slickly produced reality show on wheels in search of a coherent story line and compelling lead characters.

FYI Banks for the most pArt do not own these loans which were sold to investors such as Fannie Mae who lowered the underwriting standards at the behest of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd who both are leaving government before they were thrown out

CK if you 'did the math'you wouldnothave qualified to buy the home you lost anyway so I reality the temporary stay you had in that residence you could not afford was a gift from the bank that gave you the loan/. You are really back to where you started and did not lose anything. Undertstand better now?

CK Did you ever ask yourself why you are not among the over 90% of the population that did not go delinquent and lose their home ? Where we're you deficient?
