They don't have the ambition or desire to work their way up through the ranks and are jealous of others success at doing so. They are a bunch of pseudo anarchists who are as disengenous as they can be about helping the poor and truly needy. It's mostly about them. They'd love to see a world where they could pick up a monthly check to get themselves by and spend a lot of their days reading the paper at the local coffee shop and bitching some more about what others have that they don't.
    in my opinion, the 99 percenters are concerned about this disparity and that it is widening since the financial meltdown:

    if you are concerned about the disparity of wealth do something to make yourself more wealthy rather than whining about what others have done to get wealth

    that's what they are protesting to do
    to level the playing field
    to no longer have the best government that money can buy

    they need to work at making money and stop whining what others have

    level the playing field is loser speak for punishing those who have won and a concession that the losers don't want to do what it takes to become winners

    Level playing field means that everyone has access to the infrastructure necessary to build wealth.

    That means oppressing winners to make losers feel better


    there are plenty of opportunities for those willing to make the effort that don't require government coercion and class envy

    If a little bit taking from the top creates more wealth for everyone (and more total wealth for society as a whole), then its a good thing

I expect that in 2012 they will remove any politician they feel bares responsibility for the economic mess we are in
