    Default We are the 99%

    Darren penned this song a little while ago (maybe as far back as 2017?) and now it has been played by various artists in multiple locations around the world. It's a very catchy tune.

    I'm all for taking down the 1%, but first I'd like to briefly join their ranks to know what it feels like to be flush with that type of power and omnipotence. ..if only for a few mins. I'd drive around in my Ferrari and pull over only to smack the protein shakes out of the hands of enormous, muscular men. And then I'd smugly point at my coterie of bodyguards when threatened with violence. Getting back in my Ferrari I'd crack a beer and salute the nearest police officer before peeling out and leaving him in a cloud of dust. And then I'd get a jet pack and soar above some of these "protests", beer in hand, and urinate on the heads of the angriest, most destructive people I could find. Then there would be some kind of decadent orgy, of course, but this isn't that kind of forum, so I'll keep those details to myself. Anyway, i feel like i deserve all that.

    I'm laughing so hard here. You just happen to be one of the most kind and responsible people I know.

    Will that be a small jetpack or a big jetpack?

    It is catchy, and Nesbit's lyrics are spot on. The "negro spiritual" ("When the Chariot Comes") first appeared in the 1899 publication Old Plantation Hymns, and is surely older than that. Here is Henry Whitter from 1924:


    Keep the faith, 99%, we shall overcome.

    Though we are the 99% in numbers, here's an interesting pictographic representation of where we stand, or sit (or kneel) in the ordering of things. I doubt it is entirely accurate, as I don't quite see the Queen sitting at the apex, but the rest might not be far away from the reality. Definitely food for thought either way.

    Interesting I had never seen this representation with the queen at the cornerstone.

    Where would be the majestic 12 or MAJI-12 or whatever they call "the twelves" in this pyramid layout?

    Once I heard from someone that "the twelves" are the ones that really runs everything from the top and they are right below the enigmatic cornerstone, also this person told me that a lot of the information available in books and internet are mostly conjecture. I searched about it a while ago and all I got was a group from the 60 or 50 related to UFO stuffs, and seems like they do not even exist anymore..

    Any ideas?

    Wow what a few mins, I would love to see the gopro footage of that!! maybe not the orgy bit though
