-- last week thought lesbian little contemptuous of the protesters who have taken over lower Manhattan in the name of occupy Wall Street.
Look I do realize had him on the teeny mobs have taken over in trash streets and parks.
There are some very genuine citizens who -- understandably disgusted with a loss of jobs.
But it's not capitalism that its -- -- itself it's an abuse habit I've said many many times before the debacle of TARP.
That we don't just have a money problem in America we got a moral problem.
We stop using Wall Street is a place for investments in product and services.
And we started turning it into a government backed casino.
For the stakes are high that the payouts even higher.
-- if you win you could keep it.
But if you lose good old uncle -- bail you out of the money.
That He confiscated from hard working stiffs who ultimately will lose their jobs while they're well paid bosses will get rich.
Even while they're bankrupting their companies.
It's apparent that many of the people who have made a mess of lower Manhattan.
They don't know or care that their actions are doing more hurt the lower wage -- support staff than it is the top executives.
The misguided notion is that all the blame is Wall Street.
Now there are some culpable firms.
Especially the big insurance and finance giants that took taxpayer funded buyouts and then sat on the money that was intended to help people get loans and have insurance.
But they couldn't do that if not for the K street conclave of well paid lobbyists in DC.
Who of one favors for their clients who -- them handsomely.
-- and let's not let congress off the hook.
The laws they pass created winners and losers in the marketplace instead of letting market forces decide who stays and who goes.
That's the fault of manipulative politicians.
From both the left and the right.
But to demonize all business -- that's misguided.
Instead of occupying Wall Street maybe the -- -- ought to find out what the private sector actually does.
And vacate Wall Street.
Think about this what if all the private sector businesses in America decided to vacate for a day one day.
All corporations and businesses across America just shut down.
What our lives really be improved -- the oil companies refuse to sell gasoline or heating oil.
-- if the bank shut down their ATMs in teller lines.
What at the grocery stores close their doors.
Are the airlines bus companies and hotel shut down for an entire day if all the restaurants barber shops forest and law offices.
Well wait a minute on -- law offices it might be good but what if Wal-Mart and Home Depot and Apple Computer and all the cable TV operators quit for a day.
How would shutting down business.
Make our lives better.
You know I think Americans do have a right to be angry.
But maybe that anger ought to be focused thoughtful and directed at members of congress and the K street lobbyists who really called the shots.
And who have far more to do with your future.
And -- that some of the people who -- on Wall Street.
