    But from all your commercial activities, it sure seems like you are trying very, very hard to be in the 1%…or at least the top 10%.
    (And a tip of the hat to your capitalistic, entrepreneurial and PR spirit!)

      I certainly am! I am a capitalist thing, but that doesn’t mean I’m down with lobbyists or banks giving bonuses out of their bailout money, or the outright fraud that caused the financial crisis. I don’t think the point of OWS is to demonize rich people, but rather to point out things that are fundementally unjust and unsustainable

      If you notice, I got a mouse-lady in a sharp business suit.

    Exactly. Entrepreneurial spirit and initiative cannot be equated with anti-capitalistic fraud and theft at the highest levels of our banking aka lobbying aka governmental system.

    To assume so otherwise is oversimplification and a false equivalency.

    But a big part of OWS is that the 1% have too much money and that it should be taken from them via taxation (and other means) and the wealth of the rich 1% (anyone making over $350,000) should be redistributed to others….correct?
    If one becomes part of the 1% through their smarts, hard work , entrepreneurial spirit and initiative they are lumped in as the “enemy” and are a target.
    And most union guys make more than lots of us hard-working, up and coming entrepreneurs struggling to work around/with many of the rules the the union lobbyists set up through the government.

    You are my new hero Molly…wish I were
    able to attend one of your Dr. Sketchy’s Anti Art School sessions! (I live near Key West). But I am following all of your projects, and support your views. Keep it up girl!

    @Beth Thompson

    If an independent artist can make the top 1%, or even top 10%, now that’s a world worth fighting for.
