Yeah this is -- abroad this is here one year old are not necessarily one year wiser because bubbles occupiers were back.
There muddied message -- just as confusing.
But just his left out in force trying to -- down Wall Street today targeting big banks like HSBC.
And the do you have stock exchange itself.
Nothing more than a hundred arrested indicates this -- apart from -- protests expected to continue well into the evening.
Get -- the 99 percentage are just getting started.
Welcome everyone glad to have you have Neil Cavuto had the Occupy Movement doing its best to -- be struck down movement on Wall Street today it did not work because the -- trade stocks.
Well they still -- -- business as usual inside amid these streaming and often screaming protesters outside.
My next -- says Wall Street wasn't days because occupiers message wasn't resonating.
-- -- -- -- -- He works on Wall Street and he had his brother famously held their own memorable counter protest originating occupiers -- -- that's.
They tried to hire and not a single taker.
-- -- back with us right.
Now how was it down there today -- today it was a walk in the paw could literally went down to Zuccotti Park and last year at this time as you know we went out there and we try to Parse some occupiers and we tried to make at least a counter protest.
May be -- an idea about getting a job rather than sleeping in a park we met tons of resistance last year this year I strolled.
Right through the -- got some snide remarks about not having my 99% uniform on but other than that was like you know you'll toothless dog on the porch.
Lot of what happened when viewing your brother were trying to -- Some of the protesters there other Wall Street guys were trying to do something similar.
Arm to a man -- woman they reported it was tough to find people to come up and even apply.
Yeah I mean we held the job fair right in the middle of the park and I think that was one of the best tactics Mayor Bloomberg have a -- as far as -- the -- because there -- wholly.
Any takers and then there were actually a few people that came in and did their resume -- and we set them up with some interviews but.
To no avail -- none of them met Muster.
None of them showed up for their appointments.
That one or two that did showed up kinda.
Shabbily dressed and on prepared.
Maybe to mock us who would ever was but they -- really in job for a quick in the market for -- -- what do you think.
And then as now their protests is about.
-- -- In the beginning when this started I felt like it was good that they energize some people -- they had a single message.
And the single message should have been that we need off federal policies to change.
And let that trickle down to better bank regulation that message became fragmented the message became a left -- Liberal zealot message and I think as -- then try to speak to a few people.
They still don't have a message.
And when you have a protest.
And you have a message you get a result it's one year -- -- they haven't demonstrated a single result other than.
Costing New York City and other municipalities a ton of -- put -- that cops and sanitation men out in the street.
To protect these people and -- clean up after themselves.
To me I haven't seen any change in the message nor a single focused message -- They get -- change you mentioned the numbers.
But few months back even a year ago vs now on.
It's obviously not -- -- group and the -- it was -- -- I think what happened was it got too fragmented and the people that came out with the core message that we're trying to get at the federal policies.
That allowed too big to fail to happen those people -- got muffled out by this -- -- fragmented message and when you go down then now.
You know it looks like a collection of Woodstock veterans and homeless people and they're all kind of just hold it up cardboard signs but -- anyone.
-- -- Wall Street to focus because the argument was then as -- -- today.
The source of all these bail -- bigger bailouts and auto industry ever enjoyed.
They're rescues and any other group enjoyed so Wall Street is the Bane of our existence -- -- think that mustered anything.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- anything at all in fact I gave up or at least tried to give some advice to the occupiers that.
What they needed to do was point their message at the federal policies that allow the too big to fail on the bank -- they say it it -- and -- government not -- notes this is what they say is these are the bad guys meantime.
Probably 85% of the people that work in the Wall Street area are regular middle class working people donated -- jobs make you live -- living paycheck to paycheck.
And then at the people that are allowing these things to happen.
You have Barack Obama is number one.
Fund raiser John Corzine whose company couldn't find one point five billion dollars and no one is pointing this beer at the president and saying why -- these federal policy still allowed to continue.
But they're pointing at regular working people down on Wall Street.
And I think to be honestly it's good for them let them have their day in the sun for their nothingness but.
It seems like this whole movement is just washing away -- foreign thank you John tobacco -- -- -- on the other side.
Someone -- thinks this movement.
