There’s another protest going on outside our building down California Street. You know what I like about San Franciscans? They’re organized.
They were handing out leaflets with varying pictures of UC Regents and how much money they make. “Meet the 1%. Leslie Shilling: UC Regent and Director of Union Square Investments. Leslie manages accounts for high net worth individuals and corporations or other businesses and has more than $133 million in assets under management.”
“Richard Blum is chair of a $7 billion equity investment/management firm (Blum Capital), co-chair of one of the largest private equity firms (TPG), and on the board of 3 other huge companies. He also owns the world’s second largest for-profit education firm.”
While I do feel bad for the protesters, I’m certainly part of the 99%, but why do I care what other people make? I only care what I make, what kind of life I’m trying to abide by—a hard-working one! I don’t blame others for my own success or failure.
The protesters are protesting class disparity. Stupid Americans, you want to know what class disparity is really like? Drive your jalopy through the Mexican border. Take a flight to any third world country. THAT’s class disparity.
Quit your friggin whining. Billions of people around the world would kill to be in your shoes right now.
