  •  The .45% (0+ / 0-)

    Is the number of people who are in the military as part of the population. You want to give attention to the 1% rich people, or you the 99%, dont forget about the .45% that gave you the right to speak ignorantly about My my right to free speech, my rights to carry a weapon, my right to not have a soldier quartered in my home, my right to unlawful search and seizure, my right to double jeopardy, my right to a fair and speedy trial, my right to a trial by jury, my right to no cruel and unusual punishment, my right that my constitutional rights not be construed to deny others, or the right The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    •  2%, hon. Military members make up (6+ / 0-)

      2% of the population.

      Take your militia-fake patriotism elsewhere please.  ALL the heroes I know never brag about it....especially not the ones in the military.

      David Koch is Longshanks, and Occupy is the real Braveheart.

        note that the total population of the US is about 313 million. The number of men and women on active duty is just under 1.5 million and the number of reserves and national guard are about another 1.5 million. So that would mean that the percentage of the population on active duty is .48% and the total including the guard and reserves is just under 1%.

        I am not sure of the metrics that get you to a 3% number.

      here's the thing about the Founders, they created us all EQUAL, they didn't provide extra special rights for grandiose blowhards to lord over other people. Your right to a weapon does not supercede my right not to be shot. See, my right not to be shot is in the Constitution as well. That's that whole "construed to deny others" you think doesn't apply to you.

      You're a stranger on the internet, I don't know that you are or aren't in the military. Your bluster makes you come off like a 15 year-old who plays too much Call of Duty. Might wanna see if there's a Rosetta Stone course on communicating with adults without sounding like an oppressive jerk.
