Heroic Rich Girl Wants World Where ‘We All Have Enough’

Yeah but black people are SUPPOSED to be poor and struggling ...Who is this heroic gal who stepped foot into the class war mob scene of the communist French Revolution and escaped with her head? What kind of nonsense is she spouting? Send her home to listen to Rush Limbaugh with the plumbing contractors who struggle to make $65,000 a year and think they’re Warren Buffett or something.

Here is the text from this young lady’s sign, as seen at the Occupy Wall Street class warfare riots over the weekend:

I inherited money at 21. I have had health and dental insurance all my life. I want to live in a world where we all have enough. I have more than enough. Tax me! Rich kid for redistribution.

I am the 1%

I stand with the 99%

    1. NeonTrotsky

      After I get off work I will head to the protest and be the first to devote everlasting love to this woman. You have three hours to beat me there.

      1. Chillwaver

        Good to know. For a minute there, I thought you were the guy to the right (the one digging for gold). I've got 2:50 remaining then…or I might wait until after you get maced first, then head over there…

      2. Preferred Customer

        Something like 50 percent of the people in this country don't even HAVE jobs, Trotsky. I think someone's going to be able to make it over there before you…

          1. WIDTAP

            Do I bear her a little interest? Let's just say I wouldn't mind manipulating her funds, if you you know what I mean.

    2. Unfairman

      C'mon now, the best thing about the Wonketteratti is our originality and cleverness. This is just more of the dreck you see from male internet scuzz on any message board where there are women.

      For shame.

        1. Unfairman

          I see what you tried to do there.

          My point is, we are better than this. We must BE better than this.

          Lincoln out.

      1. flamingpdog

        All of them, Katie!
        Why do you hate America?
        Pics or GTFO!
        Who else is original and clever?

      2. Guppy06

        I take offense at your comment! I have the utmost respect for women and their right to be free from sexual harassment!

        I'm gold-digging, learn the difference!

  1. CapnFatback

    Riley, have I got the girl for you! Duck away from Breitbart and meet me by the lass wearing the polka-dot shirt and sporting the $200-dollar manicure!

    1. GOPCrusher

      Sadly, some ragey Tea Bagger will see this picture and go into a foaming at the mouth fit about how she can just write a check to the I.R.S. for any amount she wants to pay, but that doesn't mean that the rest of the rich people should have to pay any taxes at all.
      Ass holes.

    1. tessiee

      "Today, we are all slick-back haired pervs in green shirts… "

      God damn lie.
      I never slick back my hair, and I don't even own a green shirt.

    1. PalinzADummy

      If she inherited anything sizeable, her lawyers have someone in the crowd keeping an eye on her, whose sole duty is to call them the minute she is accidentally touched by anything vaguely unpleasant or hostile.

      1. Chichikovovich

        He'll call the lawyers right after he alerts the helicopter full of Xe (née Blackwater) commandos hovering a discreet distance away.

  2. DaSandman

    Lissa, honey, what the fuck? Trolling for a worse class of boyfriend that you're bringing home now?

    I KNEW that school your Mother liked so much was too weird and progressive.

    1. Terry

      Did someone in her graduating class major in Frisbee? If not, that school canNOT be considered too weird or progressive.

  3. johnnyzhivago

    Not to be hyper critical,

    I mean she could have had a starving graphic artist make a nice sign instead of holding a piece of cardboard that looks like a hobo slept on it last night…. just saying…

    1. Eve8Apples

      She's going for the funky hobo chic look. That piece of cardboard cost her $185.00 at Neimann Marcus.

      1. Serolf_Divad

        I saw those signs there, too. They were part of the 2012 Boheme collection, and they had them next to the $140.00 milk crate bookshelves and the $12.00 ball jar glasses.

    2. Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Clearly, all political expression in this country now days comes down to cardboard signs and revolutionary clothing.

      1. SoBeach

        I'm guessing her mom would be mid to late forties. You're still in the running. Gotta outrun me though, and I'm a couple years younger (and hopefully more spry).

        1. jus_wonderin

          You are probably closer too her too. Damn. If I did run, I'd probably pull something or break a man heal and get crushed by the crowd.

    1. DeathofKoalas

      Hate to be the one to say it, but being that she inherited, mommy might not be looking so hot right now…

      Too much?

  4. bagofmice

    If these class warfare traitors continue to use their unearned wealth to send a message, then who knows where we will end up?

  5. bflrtsplk

    I wish I could say she is my sister or my mother or my best friend or – my wife. No such luck.

  6. freakishlywrong

    I'm cornfused. Is she the 1% that's also a part of the %53% that does/doesn't want to help out the 99%? This is why we can't do shrooms anymore..

    1. mereoblivion

      There is a longhair that doesn't like the shorthair
      For bein' such a rich one that will not help the poor one

      1. PalinzADummy

        Did you grow up in the UK, or the colonies? You say "maths," like we English-educated do. Americans say "math."

      1. jus_wonderin

        OT: But I look for furniture on Craigs List. Often I find misspellings but the funniest one, besides someone selling a Candle Opera, was the "Scabby Shiek Dresser that your daughter will just love."

      1. SorosBot

        Not if she's rich; the hipsters may claim to drink PBR ironically, but they really do so because it's dirt cheap.

    1. mumbly_joe

      As mentioned, there's an reason to go for cardboard, which is much more obvious if you actually go down to the occupation:

      durability. Plus, also too, it doubles as a place to sit semi-comfortably. Fancy poster-board signs don't do anything for cushioning the booty.

    2. PalinzADummy

      You know, that sign happens to be part of the whole Needless Markup Neo-Primitif Spring Season Advance Buys Wardrobe.

      You DO know that, don't you?

    1. NorthStarSpanx

      But I don't see any flag-christ-biblical-armed services-pro-life-2nd-Amendment bling.

      She must be foreign.

  7. jus_wonderin

    Is that dude in the far right top about to pick? He is, isn't he? He's about to pick. Look at that. He's gonna pick.

    1. Guppy06

      And of all the things to focus on in the photo, you catch that?

      I'd tell you to get your head examined, if your fictional health insurance policy covered that sort of thing.

      1. jus_wonderin

        I have already photoshopped myself standing beside her. And it is good that her feet are cropped. I can't paint feet.

    1. chicken_thief

      Congrats to the two of you! May you live long happy lives in wedded bliss. But, uh, you don't mind if I fuck her on the side occasionally, do you?

        1. nonbeliever7

          Hey, you just reconnected 2 neurons that haven't fired since 1976. With apologies to most of you…..

          A prostitute needs an emergency appendectomy. Unfortunately the drunken ER doctor getting confused while closing the incision. So now the prostitute is making a little money on the side.


      1. Unfairman

        Grow. The. Fuck. Up.

        If I were a woman, I'd have to be a lesbian because of all you creepy bastards who think you have a modicum of originality.

        1. chicken_thief


          And what makes you think that lesbians would be dying to welcome the Self-Appointed Humor Police into their fold?!

          1. Unfairman

            I guess we've got different definitions of humor.

            Feel free to make jokes about the darkies, too.

          2. Negropolis

            Gawker is that-a-way.

            Oh, and the darkies? Nigga', please.

            You're new here. Either you'll end up loving us, or you'll leave.

    1. mumbly_joe

      There's actually few important reasons to use corrogated cardboard rather than poster board for something like this:

      a) multiple days of use don't show nearly as badly as it does against white.

      2) relatedly, more durable

      and most importantly,
      III) it doubles as a place to sit, since Zuccotti park is all pavement.

  8. KeepFnThatChicken

    Why doesn't she just shut up and create a fucking job? HUSH, JOB CREATOR, AND MAKE ME SOME MONEYS

    1. mumbly_joe

      Way to crush the upwardly-mobile hopes of all the boys in this thread, if it ends up she's a Mawrter.

  9. BlueStateLibel

    Disinherited in 1, 2, 3 …BTW, where's Riley? We need to start taking up a collection to buy the kid a parka and snow boots for the coming winter months. Then again, eh, Washington's army was mostly barefoot during the winter months, and there's no law against lighting campfires.

  10. Indiepalin

    Any truth to the rumor that tonight's GOP debate / goatfuck, at Dartmouth College, will be moderated by Keggy the Keg?

  11. __kth__

    If she feels so strongly, she should give away her trust fund so maybe a few hundred people can stave off eviction for another couple months.


  12. anteater

    I can't tell how big her rack is. What? Like you weren't thinking it.
    My future wife needs to fit properly into a too-small bikini.
    Then we will laugh and splash about in the oversized pool while white-gloved servants wait with cool adult beverages. Beverages!!!!

  13. hagajim

    Nice to know the trustafarians (at least this one) aren't totally self-absorbed assholes…good on ya sister!

  14. prommie

    Need I say that I would hit that? I would it it, till she has had enough, because she wants to live in a world where everybody has enough.

    1. tessiee

      Every single dumb-ass teabagger who votes to benefit corporations and the wealthy, even when it makes their lives worse?

  15. Chet Kincaid

    Surely she has the means to buy us a House or Senate seat behind the scenes, instead of standing on the street with a cardboard sign pretending to be powerless?

    1. Negropolis

      You know how much House and Senates seats are going for in these post-Citizens United times? It's possible she could be the majority owner of some rural House member, but that's about it unless she's more wealthy than I'm thinking she is.

  16. JustEd2

    So what exactly is preventing her from donating all her money to the poor if she feels she has too much money? She needs the government to tell her to do it?

  17. Antispandex

    Wait a minute! Backpack? No wonder bra? Those nails? No jewlery, or makeup? I'm not buying it! But, she does possess a certain doability…

  18. WordsOfWiesman

    Well, of course she inherited the money, amirite? If she had earned her money all by herself then she wouldn't want to give it all away like a class traitor. She should try to emulate hardscrabble, yet rich, heroes like, um, the Koch brothers, no wait, or Mitt Romney or the Waltons. Oh never mind.

  19. V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡

    Wonder how she'd feel about an estate tax of about….let's about 100 percent of the estate value, with a $100K exemption.

  20. SorosBot

    It's good to know that there are some rich girls who can rely on the old man's money that actually do know that it's wrong, wrong to take what is given you.

  21. owhatever

    That's my daughter, and I'm proud of her, but I really should have sold her into slavery long ago, back when she got uppity and learned to read.

  22. rickmaci

    Pretty face, check
    Nice figure, check
    Great hair, check
    Nice dresser, check
    Liberal politics, check
    Fat portfolio, check

    Will you marry me???????

  23. PuglyDoRight

    She's so humble that she used shitty cardboard to make her sign instead of fancy posterboard.

  24. MilwaukeeKent

    I say way to go and good for her. Some people are decent regardless of the circumstances of their birth. Tip of the hat to her and everyone down there.

  25. MadBrahms

    Lovely as the "tax me more" sentiment is, there are plenty of ways to pay more into society in the meantime. I recommend giving money to a public university endowment. Possibly anthropology, in Florida.

  26. paymytaxbill

    I've got a SCOOP for everyone. It appears this girl may be a phony. I've found out who she is and have found more photos. It appears everyone she works with went out with similar signs. Is it possible there are that many 1% millionaires/billionaires all under one roof where they work? hmm

    Check out the article:

  27. 3xm

    Stop and think for a minute.

    For all the posters who are putting this woman down, are you really equating wealth with evil, and poverty with virtue? Do really think everyone of the 99% are inherently 'good' and the 1% are not?

    The sexist remarks are inane, and troll like.

    I take what she is saying at face value as I have no reason not to.

    Does anyone have any evidence to the contrary? Facts? I'm always willing to listen to the truth.

  28. snoopyfan2010

    I dared to share this post and got the following as a response:
    "Like I said I don't believe she is in the 1%
    unless she shows her tax return and personal financial sheet

    Until then she is a socialist who needs to give her inheritance back to parents and let them redistribute it"


    1. paymytaxbill

      She is just one of many that work for an organization called "Resource Generation" – everyone she works for made a similar sign. I'd like to see their tax returns…

      What I don't like about it is they tried to make it look like a spontaneous event, when it wasn't. I guess that's what you call "staged"

      Read all about it here:

  29. danneskjold42

    if you're given everything you have, why would you care if its taken away (as long as you still will have enough)? you didnt work for it, and you didnt earn it.
    hers is a special case that doesn't strengthen the argument for increasing taxes on the wealthy. most of the wealthy did earn their wealth in accordance with the structure of our economy.
    thats the problem though. the structure of our economy is such that the top 1 percent earn the majority of the nation's income, and there are only 3 million people who fit in that category.
    we need more mid-level job growth. people dont want hand-outs, people want work and the opportunity to better their lives.

  30. Unfairman

    Oh ho, I get it. He dares make a valid comment equating the repression of one group of people to the oppression of another group of people, therefore he is not liberal enough!

  31. Unfairman

    I get it! Someone makes a valid point criticizing the use of marginalizing language used to subjugate as being similar to the marginalizing language used to subjugate another group, and therefore they aren't liberal or progressive!

    Such double speak is admirable.

    I know, I know. tl;dr
