Will The 99% Be Time’s Person of the Year 2011?

Of course, the Time reporter indicates in the disclaimer that a person’s inclusion in the poll does not necessarily mean that he or she is a serious candidate.  Sure.  

It appears to me that the author could be a little biased, and I wonder if he has read about some of the other  99% occupiers’ activities  or John Nolte’s occupy crime and violence running tally here

Personally, I kinda think  the Occupy freaks will actually win Time’s Person of the Year.  What do you think?

Who Should Be  TIME’s Person of the Year 2011?

by Nate Rawlings

From tsunamis to budget battles to revolutions, 2011 has been  a tumultuous, news-packed year. Who influenced the news most, for better or for  ill? Tradition dictates that TIME’s editors choose the Person of the Year, but  we want to know: if you were in charge, who would it be? And remember, a  person’s inclusion as a ‘candidate’ in the poll doesn’t mean he, she or they are  serious candidates to be named Person of the Year by the magazine.

On Sept. 17, about 2,000 people amassed on Wall Street to protest corporate  greed and influence in government. They didn’t succeed in occupying all of the  financial district, or even all of Wall Street, but they have taken and held a  small urban park in lower Manhattan around the corner from Ground Zero. In the  early weeks of the demonstrations, a core group of protesters set up a complex  tent city from which they organized large marches and rallied around the slogan  “We are the 99%.” The movement has since gone national, with rallies and  “occupations” in dozens of cities across the U.S., from Oakland, where  confrontations with the police became violent, to Atlanta, where protesters  expanded the group’s mandate by occupying a house to prevent a bank from taking  it in foreclosure.

    Again, this is all about redistribution of wealth:
    “changing the national conversation from a focus on the debt to one of income inequality, opportunity inequality and a system they say has left too many people without a voice.”

    There is no opportunity inequality. People who work hard go places. People who expect to take from others get left behind. As they should.
