I Choose not to be part of the 99%

I have a mortgage, consumer debt and 2 investment loans.  My total debt roughly equals my total assets.  I have a career job that I bought, and I will be at that job for life.

I have made some good choices in life.  I've made some bad choices in life.  The fact of the matter is that I choose not to be part of the 99% not because I'm exceedingly wealthy or privileged, it's because I knew what I was getting into when I made all of those choices.  I weighed the risks and the rewards, and I understand that if even 80% of those decisions come out as good, I will be immensely successful in life.  I also am not part of the 99% because I don't believe in protesting or making someone else pay for the choices I've made in my life.  It's about personal responsibility and owning my decisions, good or bad.

In essence folks, it's about growing up.  This is my story.  I'm not putting it in a picture, because that's lame and it's being done to death.
