Are You Smarter Than a Wall Street Occupier?

That’s New York magazine’s title. They asked 50 people in Zuccotti Park some questions. Here are some of the results.

Maybe the most interesting question concerned the capital gains tax rate. What should it be? The occupiers were all over the map. 14% said zero. 10% said between 10% and 25% where it is now. 30% thought it should be between 25% and 50%; 28% wanted a rate between 50% and 80%. 6% thought all capital gains should be confiscated—a rate of 100%. 12% had no idea.

  1. The republican media machine have spun out
    nonsense decade after decade after decade…

    For the true facts that matter on PC search put
    ( Words of Peace ). Thus a means given where
    the answers unto all ones questions / answered.

  2. Don’t you love the fact that “I don’t know” was the most popular answer? That about sums it up. These people aren’t smart enough to come in out of the rain– really! Ignorance is bongo-beating, roach-tokin’, soap-abstainin’, hand wavin’, laptop-mattress-tent-camera-trashbag-stealin’ bliss.
