It assured worried citizens that 99 percent of its members were law-abiding citizens, thereby marginalizing the remaining "1 percent" as outlaws.
One Percenters organize and wear their patches as the proverbial finger raised toward society’s expectations of them.
Furthermore, the One Percenter clubs are organized around the idea of a community, and their unconventional lives and motorcycle lifestyles are reinforced by the strong-as-steel bonds with other members.

 The adMan - A Knee-Jerk to the Groin of American Advertising
In fact, most truck commercials are so good it's almost a slap in the face that GMC has chosen to buck the trend with their new Sierra "One-Percenter" ad campaign.
Or perhaps "One-Percenter" really refers to those who would rather feel like popcorn-fattened circus elephants than rampaging African rhinos.
GMC may make big, burly trucks, but has somehow forgotten that 'big and burly' is what sells people on them in the first place.

 The 1 Percent Solution   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The One Percenters aren't what you'd expect-guys who name their houses, or trace their roots back to the first-class cabin on the Mayflower, or know what quail eggs taste like.
About a third of the 1.18 million One Percenters are executives or managers, another third are professionals, and about 10 percent are in sales.
At the risk of sounding politically incorrect, perhaps it's time we realized that the top 1 percent of taxpayers are at least as deserving of tax relief as any other "Percenters." Without them, after all, there wouldn't be a surplus to argue about.

 The Class Wars: A Regal Obituary
To get a true sense of the disparities they should look for homes of the upper one-tenth of one-percent whose average income is over $1,000,000 a year, the equivalent of the annual income of approximately 200 bottom ten-percenters.
And, of course, no top tenth of one-percenter can be expected to admit that their financial status has been augmented and underwritten by contributions to politicians who obligingly reciprocated by shifting the tax burden to people with far fewer resources to offer candidates.
There are generous humanitarians and genuine heroes among the top tenth of one-percenters, like Warren Buffett and Oprah, and students would do well to become acquainted with their lives also.

 ONE-PERCENTER
A term one-percenter was coined after a gathering of the American Motorcycle ‘Gypsy Tour’ on July 4, 1947.
When violence broke out the Motorcycle Association issued a statement saying that 99% of riders were respectable, pleasure riders and the other one-percent were troublemakers.
The reality is that all one-percent clubs are outlaw motorcycle clubs, but not all outlaw motorcycle clubs are one-percent clubs.

Maybe a one percenter, or wannabe, or maybe even more, but it's a shame when one man's ego causes other brothers to get a bad name.
As a concerned citizen, I am saddened that some of our "finest" had to suffer insult, cuts and bruises (enforcing laws we the people hire them to) because of a spoiled grown up baby who can't handle his "toys" and "treats" in a legal and responsible way.
This culprit should be thanking God and Law enforcement that he got tasered instead of shot dead.

 ONE-PERCENTER   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Tom Lindsay, the AMA’s Public Information Director, states “We [the American Motorcyclist Association] acknowledge that the term ‘one-percenter’ has long been (and likely will continue to be) attributed to the American Motorcyclist Association, but we've been unable to attribute its original use to an AMA official or published statement—so it's apocryphal.”
This ethic, colloquially referred to as “motorcycle club etiquette,” outlines acceptable member behavior given a wide variety of social contexts and dictates the deliverance of swift and severe sanctions to those who violate group and individual roles and responsibilities.
With due respect to Mark Watson and Daniel Wolf, who have reported that all outlaw clubs are one percenters, it is important to draw a sharp distinction between outlaw motorcycle clubs and one percenters.

More consumers are keeping antivirus software up to date than last year, the study found.  A year ago, only 33 percent had updated their antivirus software in the past week.
This year, 44 percent had.  And twice as many consumers (56 percent compared to 28 percent) had properly configured firewalls, thanks in part to changes in Microsoft's Windows XP program that turn on the firewall by default.
More than one out of four homes had a wireless network (26 percent), and nearly half of these homes (47 percent) failed to encrypt their connection, a safety precaution needed to protect wireless networks from outside intruders.

A man called Tiny wore the diamond-shaped piece of cloth on the back of his denim jacket when he arrived in the sleepy town of Sioux City, Iowa, in 1962.
About a dozen true one-percenter clubs remain, including the Hell's Angels, the Bandidos, the Outlaws and, in Kansas City, El Forasteros and the Galloping Gooses.
In the early days, the Kansas City club members would party for three solid days in the "caves" under an Interstate 435 overpass, recalls Jim "Moose" Foley, a 61-year-old original member of the Des Moines, Iowa, chapter who frequently rides through Kansas City.

 One year after the election triumph
Nevertheless, in the elections in West Berlin as well as in the municipal elections in the industrial heartlands of the West, in Northrhine Westphalia, the PDS made some advances and gained dozens of local councillors (over 4% in the City of Duisburg).
But elsewhere (such as in the Saarland state elections) the PDS in the West is still at the level of a one percenter.
Of course, Marxists must not be surprised by the fact that a government lead by the German Blairite Schröder and firmly based on capitalism and liberalism should come into serious trouble and frustrate their working class and left wing supporters before long.

 A NEW PROGRAM FOR THE LIBERTARIAN PARTY?   (Site not responding. Last check: )
But the party derided as the great one-percenter of American politics causes an awful lot of people to ponder such development with a passion that occasionally approaches the pathologic, assuming a fair degree of the fury is anything more than blowing steam.
There is hardly any poison implicit if the Republicans truly believe a one-percent party is that much a threat to what remains of their position, and the Libertarian Party has less than ten minutes to begin availing themselves of that alarm.
Make further note of the point that almost half the electorate sat it out in November 2000, and the reasonable enough presumption that a good many of those non-voters did so on the thought that a vote cast for freedom would have noplace substantial to go in the end.

 Christopher 'Farmer' Curvin; motorcyclist loved the road - The Boston Globe
For the past six years he was president of the Brockton chapter of the Outlaws, one of more than 80 local groups that make up the club's international network of chapters.
The Outlaws proudly call themselves "the one-percenters," a moniker they adopted in the 1960s to distinguish themselves from the other 99 percent of bikers who don't take "hard riding [and] hard partying" as seriously as they do, according to the club's website.
Curvin was a "24-hour-a-day, 7-days-per-week" one-percenter, said Marty Warren, the group's regional spokesman.

According to the American Motorcyclist Association, 99 per cent of the people who ride motorcycles and the clubs they belong to are law-abiding citizens and organizations.
But according to the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, law-enforcement officials changed the meaning of "one percenter" in the 1980s so that the term referred to members of criminal gangs.
The Outlaws says it is a law-abiding organization whose members share a commitment to biking and brotherhood.

We, the one percenters must avoid degenerative diseases, not only cancer, but also heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia etc.if we are to advance our most important mission of 're-educating' the two percenters and three percenters.
It therefore follows that when we have 're-educated' 3% of the population to a point where they are awakened and fully aware, we will be able to thwart the New World Order plans of the 'usury' elites.

 NC Policy Watch with Chris Fitzsimon : » Friday Follies
Many of the unopposed candidates continue to raise money to pass on to other candidates and their political party or to build up a war chest to scare off future challengers and impress the political observers.
A report from Democracy North Carolina several years ago found that one percent of the people in the state contribute 90 percent of the campaign money raised by candidates.
Candidates who need to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to run for office would be foolish not to spend a lot of time talking to the one-percenters and returning their calls first.

The traditional and stereotypical image of the “one-percenter” biker is that of the heavily tattooed, beer drinking, and possibly drug using, big white guy riding a customized Harley with his “old lady” on the back.
Rather than being the one-percent of outlaw bikers, they are in a sense the one-percent of American Christians.
While there is more to the break between the outlaw biker and members of the Unchained Gang than simply being Pentecostal Christians, there are several ideological similarities that Remsberg manages to point out over the course of the book.
