Post the Tough 1% Guy’s Real Name, Then We’ll Find Out What Happens in the Real World

Just when you may have thought the ongoing battle between the 99% and the 1% was dying down, it may have been reignited. A wealthy banker left a $1.33 tip on a $133 lunch at the True Food Kitchen restaurant in Newport Beach, California.

To add insult to injury the word “tip” was circled on the receipt, and the banker wrote “get a real job” on the bill. The picture of the receipt was taken and uploaded to the blog Future Ex-Banker by a person who was dining with the anonymous banker. As expected, the blog received a lot of attention and has now been taken down.

The author of the blog wrote, “mention the 99% in my boss presence and feel his wrath. So proudly does he wear his 1% badge of honor that he tips exactly 1% every time he feels the server doesnt sufficiently bow down to his holiness.

“People online who had a chance to see the blog post before it went offline and those who have been made aware of it on social media outlets are outraged. One person called the tip a “tale of greed and contempt,” and another referred to it as “arrogance personified.”

I actually know a number of sanctimonious pricks that probably applaud this guy.   Just post the guy’s real name somewhere.  Let the mob that he mocks do its job.

Yes, the 1% Pays a Lower Tax Rate than you and yes, even when running for President

Why won’t Mitt Romney make his tax returns public? – CSMonitor.com http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Elections/From-the-Wires/2011/1026/Why-won-t-Mitt-Romney-make-his-tax-returns-public

Why won’t Romney do it? Speculation, from liberal group ThinkProgress and others, is that Romney pays a way lower tax rate than many Americans because of his extensive financial investments, from which income is typically taxed below that of regular income. One left-leaning analyst speculates Romney paid an effective tax rate as low as 14 percent on his $6.6 million to $40 million in income. (The range is so wide because of the imprecise nature of Romney’s very limited disclosures.)
