We are the 99% and we are douchebags too.

I have a genuine dilemma about the 99% movement…

On one hand, I agree with the sentiment, in principle. On the other, I consider it to be ignoring one big point: That people are selfish, irrespective of the economic base it comes from.

Greed & individualism, at the expense of human compassion, are our enemy. Not the rich. Case in point: Every person that has ever fucked me over & destroyed MY life has been in the middle… even when presented with the option not to.

In fact, most of the people I have met who are in (or approaching) the 1%, are actually fucking great people, and do a lot for others.

Therefore, I choose to live my life according to this song:

Hey there, I'm Téa

This post is Super old (like me)

I have lived my life online for nearly 30 years. It’s why I’m so wise now.

I still have stuff on here that may not represent my current life or position. But, it’s cool because I grew up on the internet and made all the mistakes and we’re all adults, right?

 I leave it here to show you that people can grow and change. If this popup is here, it means I haven’t seen it in a while. Just so you know. Have fun :-)

Hey there, good looking.
