- GUNNY: (Interrupting.) *Illegally, huh? Now that's a god damned cryin' shame, private! I've been votin' Republican all my life. I know my rights! I'm here legally! You're worse off than me.

The Nguyen's shrimp boat was repossessed and their home is in foreclosure. We are all part of the ninety-nine percent. The remaining one percent, control more than fifty percent of the financial wealth in this country.
