After finding the outstanding We Are Wall Street flyer and posting it, I started looking around for more pushback against the Occupy Wall Street protests. Here is a college student that gets it… America is exceptional and opportunity is out there for those willing to actually work for it. Success it a reward not a right.

Here is the text for easier reading. Any typos are from the original.
I am a college senior, about to graduate completely debt free.
I pay for all of my living expenses by working 30+ hrs a week making barely above minimum wage.
I chose a moderately prices, in-state public university & started saving $ for school at age 17.
I got decent grades in high school & received 2 scholarships which cover 90% of my tuition.
I currently have a 3.8 GPA.
I live comfortably in a cheap apt., knowing I can’t have everything I want. I don’t eat out every day, or even once a month. I have no credit card, new car, iPad or smart phone – and I’m perfectly OK with that. If I did have debt, I would not blame Wall St. or the government for my own bad decisions.
I live below my means to continue saving for the future.
I expect nothing to be handed to me, and will continue to work my @$$ off for everything I have.
That’s how it’s supposed to work.
I am NOT the 99% and whether or not you are is your decision.
