Long before "occupy" started using '1%', it was used by motorcycle enthusiests to describe bikers who gave the majority of bikers a bad name... Those 'outlaw bikers' made a patch and wore it as a badge of honor.

I know 2 well, through recovery, who wear this patch. One of them is a Long Shoreman at the port in Long Beach, and he earns about $300K per year operating the gantry cranes that offload the ships, and thinks it's funny that he is considered a 1%er in that way... He spends him money gambling and on escorts.
