We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

When I was a little girl my mother told me I could be anything I wanted to be.  I dropped out of college to be a performer but never made it, but the college loan balooned from $17,000 to $50,000+ and has kept me working as a secretary my whole life.
I had a brain hemorage at 29 and even after that the student loan kept snowballing and cannot be written off in bankruptcy. Why do they let you discharge consumer debt but not student loan debt? To keep the capitalist machine going? If consumers can discharge their debt, they can apply for new loans for more debt? 
I also owe $50,000 on 2006 taxes.  I have no family, I have very few friends and I spend most of my money on animal rescue.  I feel fury and rage for the injustice committed toward animals every moment and worry that this movement is forgetting about them.  my home page is humanerevolution.org
When you are homeless there are no provisions for keeping your animals.  
I am the 99%
