I'm so sorry that you seem confused by the 99%.

Ann Coulter says that we're a mob and that Occupy Wall Street et al is the new "totalitarianism." Josh Barro at the National Review says that OWS "shouldn't be taken seriously" because it is oh so confused.

I must tell you that as much as you'd like to hope that it can't be taken seriously and as much calumny is brought down on OWS, the world and nation and the 99% are taking OWS seriously. Indeed, they are inspired and delighted by it and joining it with every passing minute.

So continue to fulminate. You're not going to be able to insult OWS to death and all of your warnings to people about it aren't working. You can keep on sending in your agents provocateurs and have police brutalize more of us, but you're not going to stop this movement.

What you don't get is something that the other 99% do get: this system is corrupt, unfair, and unjust.

In the meantime, enjoy the cake that Marie Antoinette enjoyed...
