Don't forget about Occupy Wall Street these guys to be occupying.
Think that's a -- -- thing again.
However went on -- -- don't we just use that video for an justice accused fox on top of some over the top hypocrisy these guys soaking up the side.
While socket a little guy and they're not the 1% you know they are they're unique and bosses that's -- -- -- -- Now a -- government union leaders are picking the ritzy Hilton in San Juan Puerto Rico for this to hold their annual convention reportedly funded.
But you news.
So I'm not a -- out of all those occupied protesters who -- the best the so called rich corporate fat acts now hasn't had a little.
Charles Payne -- -- now along with animals should ski and Charlie Gasparino Charles -- when -- -- Well you have progress in the perfect word for it I always thought it was a strange strange bedfellows they Occupy Wall Street unions in the sense that if these occupied kids are against greed in people taking advantage of things that have to be against some of these unions -- -- big union bosses.
You could argue agreed.
By unions killed the auto industry that in the trucking industry.
You know it's hurting airline industry and the and the bosses and the unions forget about it I mean they've really really do live a life that only the 1% could even have recognized.
-- Do you think that this agreeing this hypocrisy comes from.
Because he's what did you say an -- rich corporate fat cats how many times have you heard the word that two words that can't come out of the president's now.
In the last several years and of the year that that I just don't listen to the rest well at -- it's you know.
It -- a little bit when you say that it's almost -- a little.
It did the little guy that -- Rich caloric -- challenge.
That's you look -- timid and the photo can you imagine what they're saying it don't it don't just think my guts too big to -- I'll.
Hey hey hey -- know careful Karen -- every -- out why would they bite the hand that feeds.
I mean I've done Cingular are not -- -- -- reporting on this the unions particularly the New York City united teachers federation of teachers and other unions.
Are financing the the -- -- to move they -- a lot of money to be -- money put to them hated the united catered the event they've given them off the space nears and cutting part I will tell you this.
If the people that live around there the business owners have a beef with the Wall Street -- -- -- Wall Street.
They should have a beef with united federation the New York's the united federation teachers just abominable that they financed this mess for some -- so long Ben Stein.
Well first look like them to invite me to go and speak to that Evans and -- Set -- their second real -- had zero minutes a get a check from anyone's.
You know you can tell us that I was yeah.
It's that you're there you can look you you can't you cannot you cannot fault the union members wanted to get out of the gold.
In these goes to go down to Puerto Rico who you could say is.
With so many of our members out of work is this really good idea to be living it -- and in -- go to answers or.
When so many of our members are barely able to scrape by and are losing their jobs.
There that doesn't -- much sensitivity and next time as you've got to bombs brings that humidity.
You know I'll go what's that rather than even then Adam and that -- I don't generally -- have a problem with this the public funds I do maybe it's a little bit more embarrassing.
But if you're if you're gonna -- that's fine but certainly do not rip -- private enterprises and their annual meetings in their vocals.
You know in the process because -- -- you look doubly bad.
That I -- agree that a 100% I'm -- that this conversation is a distraction and an opportunity to say nasty things about unions having said that.
I would like to delete out of it but just play -- longer got ahead.
Well it did to distraction I'm the only one who thinks I was so I guess we're fine and I think it's -- -- hey stated they stands out like a sort of stop and come on.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- In my opinion nothing I mean I think -- good and should be allowed to have meetings in fancy resorts and entertain their clients or have lost sites for their executives.
And if somebody wants to criticize that as you know.
Bad behavior than criticize the report that though that I -- how -- I agree that the union should be either the Occupy Wall Street or the -- protesters.
Should criticize the use anything else you think is in good behavior think the direction of paid themselves all those bonuses right after being bailed out.
I mean the point here is that you have capital crony capitalism humbled sites they're both wards of the government and they're both living it up.
And I think it's it's okay to criticize the banks on pay themselves big bonuses and golden lavish vacations if we get a taxpayer bailout bill but you know -- union stuff is pretty.
Bears bears have one difference -- they don't get the heat in the media.
You know that isn't that that's that's why we're bringing it up president goes on a seventeen day vacations missed 3500 dollars a night you know he's not one of the 1%.
00 point 1%.
Out there and I was probably -- mean that's what -- outside.
I just went completely off the deep end the president of the United States.
Needs security he needs are looking a little black and -- -- you know edit and literally everybody this does not about the security is what he's great for the road that is feminist spam list things 35 -- I understand that do you want him to stay in the motel six -- do you think you know even as you're going to be very -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Between 3500 at night and 86 ballot that the average American spent that I -- -- the leader of the free world.
-- -- -- he knows about Arnold writing notes how to get something to look at some 500.
Just say hey I haven't yet you think he had a lot of give my wife and the idea.
That's -- that and the president opens the door and has since he's been -- United States to selective criticism.
He talks about what the breath taking greed of a feud that calls the financial crisis.
Once again talking about the fat cats and so he opens the door for this kind of hypocrisy where.
Did the guys who work at the banks are.
Well lousy people and these guys who are son ended up getting their bellies all -- down and when I got a -- and data is not what.
I have a suggestion -- we we should we should all agree that institutions that that public leaders should use and sensitivity.
And during typical times.
It would be a bad idea for them to be photographed living it up on the beach but.
Beyond that I mean do -- do unions have a right -- to have meetings and to organize and that we have a right to criticize I want and we really right.
Have no right to criticize the hypocrisy.
Adam you're gonna absolutely certain probable for taken bailout that I think I think just.
This -- -- -- the proper poignant.
It isn't so much where they're gonna I don't care where it -- of them go I could give them a couple of options I'm just saying.
That eats eat it sounds a particularly egregious.
When they're the ones pointing fingers at others during -- -- can debate.
Coming in Monday and just advising everybody you know you really.
You really -- adult.
But I -- -- but it's not a good idea like I I just makes it did you expect anything English -- from the Occupy Wall Street and I mean these kids had no idea what you're doing.
-- I think it was basically a a media fixation well it was an -- not hearing editing and that's to be expected but I -- just saying.
You know it is you you've got it you eat your own words aren't our taxpayer dollars paying the salaries of these public sector workers as well that's -- did you try -- distinguish it depends already did that carries a lot depended on paying the paying for the Asian day on the bottom line Ike -- could have been a couple -- in the Poconos Catskills is tricky greens placed on the Catskills.
