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%

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • http://thethingsrepublicanshate.com/ Chillwaver

    The question is, are you single?

    • dr_giraud

      Because in our new feudal paradise, the best answer is hypergamy.

    • 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.

      • http://thethingsrepublicanshate.com/ 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…

      • 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…

    • mumbly_joe

      She can redistribute her wealth to me, any time.

      • Lionel[redacted]Esq

        I know that someone just raised my taxes, if you know what I mean.

        • Golfing_OJ

          I seem to have expelled a little toxic mortage on myself, if you know what I mean.

          • 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.

    • Guppy06

      Single, shmingle. Does she need a (pasty, overweight) pool boy?

    • 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.

      • Nostrildamus

        We are the scuzzy 99%!

        • LesBontemps

          Plus, tits or GTFO, also, too.

      • http://thethingsrepublicanshate.com/ Chillwaver

        And by "cleverness," you mean our fellow Wonkeratti asking girls to show their tits from time to time?

        • 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.

          • Lascauxcaveman

            Either you're very new to this site, or you haven't been paying attention, here.

          • bagofmice

            But we haven't even gotten to the @55fucking yet!
            He says in attempt to avoid Employer searches…

      • nonbeliever7

        It must have been irony since all the men here are gay…or am I confused again?

        • GregComlish

          HETEROFLEXIBLE AND PROUD!

      • flamingpdog

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

        • GregComlish

          Good news for John McCain!

        • Pat_Pending

          Also.

        • http://whatisawatthedevolution.blogspot.com imissopus

          Today we are all hot chicks!
          I for one welcome our new hot wealthy empathetic liberal female overlords!
          1% libel!

          • bagofmice

            I don't always libel, but when I do…

      • 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!

    • jonzin

      I don't see a ring…

      • http://thethingsrepublicanshate.com/ Chillwaver

        You might be looking in the wrong place.

        • Oblios_Cap

          you're all too late. Wags is tagging that.

  • sati_demise

    Of course, Gerorge Soros is paying her to protest. $22.00 an hour + lunch.

  • http://gratuity.wordpress.com/ Gratuitous World

    What?!! according to Rush, she earned her money by working her way through her mother's monied vagina.

    • Boojum_Reborn

      Yes, but so did I.

      • NorthStarSpanx

        But she looks nothing like Bristol. . .

      • PalinzADummy

        You worked your way through her Mommy's vag? Dood, does her Dad know?

        • Boojum_Reborn

          Who do you think was paying?

          • PalinzADummy

            Um … so, you got a phone number, or something?

          • Boojum_Reborn

            Or something. What do you think this is, Socialism?

    • Generation[redacted]

      I bet her vagina is lined with money. I want in!

      • PalinzADummy

        Even if it wasn't, I'd still want in.

  • freakishlywrong

    Has Malkin blasted her address yet?

    • Boojum_Reborn

      Please, please, please….

      Too much, too soon, too desperate?

  • http://www.wonkette.com/ slowhansolo

    Wonder how long she'll stick around once the head-cracking begins.

    • Generation[redacted]

      The police will read her sign and move her gently off to one side.

      • jaytingle

        If she can tolerate taxation she can sure as hell handle having her head split open.

  • 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!

  • nounverb911

    "Heroic Rich Girl Wants World Where ‘We All Have Enough’"
    It's called Greenwich, CT.

  • Boojum_Reborn

    She's hot. I want to have her anchor babies.

  • emmelemm

    Bless her heart.

    (No, actually, that's pretty cool of her. I just had to say it.)

    • PalinzADummy

      True. Upfist for saying it.

    • 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.

  • http://thethingsrepublicanshate.com/ Chillwaver

    Notice the guy in green to the left, totally checking her out. Today, we are all slick-back haired pervs in green shirts…

    • CrunchyKnee

      Of course he's thinking "dat ass!"

    • Nostrildamus

      Nah, he's just checking out those gnarly bikes.

    • Antispandex

      VPL?

    • 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.

  • Come here a minute

    I hope she shares her mushrooms.

    • jus_wonderin

      I hope she doesn't have a ween.

  • ThundercatHo

    Good girl. Be sure to have your lawyer(s) on speed dial.

    • 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.

      • Chichikovovich

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

  • http://wonkette.com/ weejee

    Looks like she caught the Warren Buffet taxmefluenza.

  • 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.

    • Terry

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

      • V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡

        Is that what the kids are calling Art History these days?

    • SayItWithWookies

      The dean of Swarthmore will be getting an angry letter pretty soon.

  • http://johnnyzhivago.blogspot.com 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…

    • Eve8Apples

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

      • 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.

        • Terry

          Did you see that they're carrying gourmet ramen noodles, too? Tres chic.

      • DaRooster

        Hipster Cardboard…

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

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

    • PalinzADummy

      You're a starving graphic artist, aren't you?

      • http://johnnyzhivago.blogspot.com johnnyzhivago

        Today we are ALL starving graphic artists!

        • PalinzADummy

          True. Although some of us are starvinger than others.

    • AJWjr.

      Shabby chic is making a comeback, I see.

  • Schmannnity

    Obviously used some of her 1% wealth to learn how to spell and write. Elitist!

  • SoBeach

    Wonder if her mom is single too…

    • Not_So_Much

      So wrong it's gotta be right…

    • jus_wonderin

      Heck, I'm 52. What's her grandmother look like?

      • 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).

        • 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.

      • GOPCrusher

        Word.

    • 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?

  • bagofmice

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

  • jus_wonderin

    Anyone get her number???????

  • bflrtsplk

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

  • Eve8Apples

    This is the best pick-up scheme I've ever witnessed. You go rich girl!

  • 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..

    • mereoblivion

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

      • PalinzADummy

        Diff'rent strokes.

        Poor man's living out of a bus, these days.

    • justkillmenow

      Maths is hard.

      • PalinzADummy

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

  • Serolf_Divad

    Couldn't she afford a nicer sign?

    • elviouslyqueer

      Oh Serolf, you obviously can't recognize shabby chic when you see it. For shame!

      • Serolf_Divad

        Hey, man… I was shabby before shabby was chic! Or something…

      • 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."

        • PalinzADummy

          You just KNOW that guy's been sleepin' wit' da camels.

    • http://thethingsrepublicanshate.com/ Chillwaver

      She's aiming for a more authentic/ironic sign. I bet her backpack is full of PBR too…

      • SorosBot

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

    • 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.

      • finallyhappy

        not true -what if you use Foamcore- which she can surely afford

    • Come here a minute

      I can't think of a nicer sign.

    • 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?

  • SorosBot

    Traitor!

  • http://wonkette.com/ Monsieur_Grumpe

    Now that is an American patriot folks.

    • NorthStarSpanx

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

      She must be foreign.

      • http://wonkette.com/ Monsieur_Grumpe

        French, I hope.

        • Lionel[redacted]Esq

          I like the way they think.

  • 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.

      Double or nothing says he eats it.

    • Not_So_Much

      His frontal itches — that's all.

    • 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.

      • jus_wonderin

        It was my inner Seinfeld showing. Damn. I thought that zipper was secure.

  • OC_Surf_Serf

    I don't have the facts to back this up but I know she and I are in love…

    • http://wonkette.com/ Monsieur_Grumpe

      I saw her first!

      • Nostrildamus

        I want to live in a world where we all have hot, rich chicks.

        • prommie

          Share the wealthy! (wealthy chicks)

    • Generation[redacted]

      No way. You see the way she's looking at me there?

      • jus_wonderin

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

      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?

        "On the side"? OK, whatever you're into…

        • nonbeliever7

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

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

          • Unfairman

            I guess we've got different definitions of humor.

  • DaRooster

    She could have a least bought a WHITE piece of cardboard… for readability sake.

    • http://www.wonkette.com smokefilleddoommate

      She was going to buy a billboard to stand under but then she realized teh poorz usually use cardboard for their signs.

    • 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.

      Herman Cain?

  • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/ 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?

    • tessiee

      But it's so much cooler to wear jeans and hold up a protest sign, as though one were poor.

    • 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.

    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?

  • James Michael Curley

    Ok, I'm in love. I don't need no stinkin' psylocybin.

  • chicken_thief

    I think she found that sign discarded in the ally behind Trump Tower.

  • 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…

  • 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.

    All that is very interesting….NOW SHOW US YOUR TITs!

  • SaintRond

    That woman gave me a "special" feeling.

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

  • 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.

  • El Pinche

    Is there a sign on her ass? She's lucky the dude in green doesn't have heat vision.

  • 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.

  • VinnyThePooh

    As Rob Lowe inspects 100% of her ass.

  • PuglyDoRight

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

  • Douché

    Check out the dude 'checkin out her assets…

  • bagofmice

    It's not even embossed!

  • 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.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/mrblifil mrblifil

    I would like to introduce her to a newer, more profound sense of openness.

  • ttommyunger

    Socialist Bitch!

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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"

    Ugh!

    • 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:

  • LiveFree7

    No one's stopping her from paying higher taxes…

  • 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.

    Odd how hard it is to get across such a basic question of fairness.

  • 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!

  • 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
