Smart move. Telling the population that they are worthless has never backfired on anyone ever.
 
2011-10-06 01:46:19 PM
Unemployed people should storm that place demanding that these 1%ers create jobs for them.
 
2011-10-06 01:47:53 PM
Why not just put up a sign that says "THROW BRICKS HERE".
 
2011-10-06 01:50:16 PM
They were going to post 'Qu'ils mangent de la brioche' but thought better
 
2011-10-06 01:52:56 PM
And the truly sad part? The people that made those signs are most likely not part of the 10% of the populace that owns 80%+ of the nation's wealth, and most definitely not part of the 400 families that have more wealth than the entire bottom half of the population combined.

The truly wealthy have always relied on their lessers to carry their message. Press on, you Pinkertons, you scabs, you paragons of class warfare!

I'm guessing that building has doors. Just throwin' that out there.
 
2011-10-06 02:05:37 PM
I really hope nobody finds that offensive and firebombs the building. That would just be a disaster.

At least that would be funny.

MaxxLarge: I'm guessing that building has doors. Just throwin' that out there.


Well, there are definitely windows. Don't know if they are out of brick range, but from the look of the picture they definitely aren't reinforced or anything.

So... yeah.
 
2011-10-06 02:15:47 PM
Unsurprising. A lot of these dicksmacks are quite proud of their role in screwing up the world while they profit. If you ever wanted to roll in the guillotines, look no further. I wonder how many of them were former Arthur Andersen employees and/or graduates of the U of I business school.

Well, he did say it would be a disaster. And I agree. Violence is wrong. WRONG. And firebombing this building would be just an awful, awful thing to do.

gilgigamesh: Don't know if they are out of brick range


TFA says they're 8 stories up. That's out of brick range, unless you have some sort of mini-trebuchet or the like.

/And if you do, EIP.
 
2011-10-06 02:19:16 PM
... and it would be especially wrong and awful if a mob made sure the Board of Trade were the only people inside, and barred the door before firebombing the building.

Terrible thing to do.
 
2011-10-06 02:20:53 PM
Funny-part is they aren't the 1%. They're just dumb enough to get tricked into thinking so.

Funny thing: I actually do own a working, mini trebuchet. It was a kit I bought in Carcassone, France. It's about 16" tall.

How big are your bricks?
 
2011-10-06 02:22:12 PM
The CEO's of these financial companies should be making sure their employees don't taunt the mob of people outside protesting. But if they made good decisions in life they wouldn't have needed a giant bailout in the first place...
 
2011-10-06 02:36:11 PM
Those are footsoldiers making a few hundred thousand a year and thinking that they, too, will have private planes if only they lick a few more well-polished shoes.

Oh, take your average three-hole construction brick and break it in half. So, 2 lbs or so, 3x4x2-ish. That's proper Irish Confetti.

/Dude, for SRS? I've got to get one.
 
2011-10-06 02:39:24 PM
Let them eat cake.

That's a little big. I can use it to torture the cat with rocks and marbles and shiat like that. That's about it.

/Dude, for SRS? I've got to get one.

Like I said, I bought mine in a gift shop in Carcassone. But you know, its the age of the internets. I'd be shocked if you couldn't find them online.

Isolated incident. Overzealous hedge fund manager.
 
2011-10-06 02:46:12 PM
Ah indeed there are. Quite a few of varying quality.

I was going to post a link, but then I found something better.

Two words: Lego. Trebuchet.

Violence for profit? Ok.

Violence for revenge, even if we aren't attacking the right country? Ok.

But start talking about workers rights and all of a sudden you are Gandhi? Bullshiat.

ultraholland: Isolated incident. Overzealous hedge fund manager.


You are right. Someone should make an isolated overzealous incident in reply.
 
2011-10-06 02:49:24 PM
CLASH WERFARR!
 
2011-10-06 02:49:48 PM
The question is, if they're among the top 1% of earners, how come they can't afford better signs?

Because their unpaid sycophant interns made those signs.
 
2011-10-06 02:49:55 PM
This business will get out of control.
 
2011-10-06 02:49:58 PM

netweavr: Funny-part is they aren't the 1%. They're just dumb enough to get tricked into thinking so.


Exactly. The top 1% is a household income over $350k.

The doofuses who made those signs are nowhere near that. They should get down to their tea party meeting.

Blues_X: Why not just put up a sign that says "THROW BRICKS HERE".


That's 8 stories up. If someone can hit that with a brick, they'll get signed with the Bears and join the 1%.
 
2011-10-06 02:50:25 PM
My old company is right next door, so if a molitov was a bit off target, I wouldnt mind.
 
2011-10-06 02:50:42 PM
I dunno, it somehow seems more likely to me that someone not in the 1% put those signs up.
 
2011-10-06 02:50:55 PM
The Consumerist is just a blog and something you need to take with a rather large grain of salt.

And here we see the benefit of fire, which if started at the lowest spot of a building, can bootstrap itself all the way to the 8th floor on it's own.

Sometimes it is. You live in a country founded in violence. In any event, actively poking angry crowds with a stick is not a terribly smart idea for people who don't like violence.
 
2011-10-06 02:52:47 PM
They should spread out over more windows. I think it should read:

"We are the 1% who pay through the nose to support you, the dirty hippies who pay no taxes & do no work"

I could hit it with a rifle. Is the NRA in the 1%?

They also have to be to the gym in 26 minutes
 
2011-10-06 02:53:11 PM
If people are really gonna start throwing bricks through windows, they're not gonna give a damn if the signs are 8 stories above them.
 
2011-10-06 02:53:19 PM
We are the 1%

They misspelled "Job Creators".
