The reality is -- -- because of the occupied movement there has been more conversation about wealth disparity.
In this country than I've ever seen in my entire life time.
And that's the success they're having so yes if they shut down those ports may make it hard from mother to get a Barbie to -- streaming five year old.
It is going to make a difference it is already changing the conversation from just focusing on our debt crisis and really focusing on the growing income any -- so.

Have some like 330 billion dollars worth of goods that pass through that port shutting down a -- hurts them.
It hurts the common man John is right it hurts that it hurts the people but they are trying to help is a flight as it -- -- the point of trying to make a disparity between rich and what.
There in the wrong place they should be in the Washington mall they should be doing this to congress.
That's where the problem is if they took the same amount of energy and -- not to mention this all these people in this energy if they went after jobs and did something constructive.
May be going if they want to do this and civil -- Well I got in front of the congressman's house what I -- there was something the protests who makes the law it's not the people who create -- vote.
The economy that helps people.
But yeah -- -- either going to be -- down and frolic Tracy said Toys 'R' Us and target I mean a little pain is going to create a lot of a little hand artist decorate a lot of data in -- to employ thousands weren't wrong and not all night that boycotts and protests work.
