    If someone else is faster at picking all the apples, that should encourage and provide incentive for you to find a better way, or get quicker yourself. Instead, you're seeking an outside influence to demand no one should be quicker than anyone else and that selling the apples should be regulated. The deficiency is in the slow apple pickers, whining about how unfair it is they have to pay more for the fast guys apples. If you want your own apples... get faster or get smarter.

    Well the billionaires are doing great.

    The rest of the economy, not so much.

    So while a billionaire CAN be good for the economy, there's no guarantee in our GLOBAL economy he WILL.

    A thousand millionaires WILL spend more into the general economy acquiring THINGS. Many more things in many more places than one Billionaire who may just take his billion to play somewhere else.

    Fear it as in start boarding up their windows at home and putting extra security in their lobbies? Not at this point.

    Fear it as in reconsider the extent of their obligations to the working class? Definitely.

    Billionaires always do great... they're billionaires.

    I support the free market capitalism - you support the slow whiny apple pickers.

    I would fear the stinky hippies if it is possible to get VD by watching them on YouTube.

    After seeing these signs and listening to a large number of interviews with these Protesters, I have come to understand that they are right about that 99% number and what it truly represents.

    I know believe that 99$ of these Protesters and as dumb as box of rock.

    They claim to be College Graduates but either they're lying their asses off or the education system has really gone to hell since I left school.

    Even if it's true that all these people carrying the signs quit their jobs to Protest, it shows something an intelligent person would not do then announce their ignorance to the whole world.

    Most of the far right here seems torn between complete bewilderment from something they have no capacity to understand and jumping to antagonistic vitriolic attack mode.

    Yes, that translates to fear.
