    Debunking the Myths of Occupy Wall Street
    Margie Clayman

    ...Myth #6: The Rich Donít Pay Taxes

    Iím sure the rich wish that was true, just like Iím sure those with signs telling me to ďLook it upĒ wished I hadnít. You can play along with me here http://www.irs.gov/taxstats/indtaxst...133521,00.html

    Households with income of $200,000 or more paid 51% of all federal taxes in 2007. Households with income of over $10 million paid 9% of federal taxes.

    Myth #7: The Protestors are Poor

    Do you know what I call poor? Living in a shanty town with no running water, an open sewer running right underneath the so-called walkway and food you hope hasnít gone bad. Have you ever been to a place like that? I have, when I worked with fair trade groups in Asia.

    Poor people donít drink Starbucks, have laptops, use smart phones or wear designer clothes. Want proof? Just do a search online for #occupywallstreet images (or heck look at the picture above)...

    You need to change your screen name. You are neither polite enough to be a gentleman nor interesting enough to be a pirate.

    It's an insult to Elspeth. snopes is a Soros backed leftist, "liberal" rag.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
