Isn't wasted time and it was who supports the crowd but it you heard what John was saying.
What are you sent.
Well I think that actually John and I agree on a couple of issues -- although.
I think the biggest plays that we -- -- in this idea that occupy should want to go about things the way we think patient.
Right there was a great article about the tyranny of consensus.
And I think occupiers really should read and should figure out how they can.
Not have centralized message -- I don't think they need that but how they can work in conjunction with one another to become -- they're not.
Doing that you have to have a point to a rally right I mean an anti war rally by its very yeah it's in Louisiana -- The women's suffrage movement about giving women the right to vote.
This -- they just didn't seem to be a lot of bitching going on here.
And not a lot of clarifying going on and I think that the -- the message.
Yes I I think that I think that the press couldn't follow.
-- you know a broad message which I don't necessarily things he wants him to -- -- I have read I mean I really wouldn't go to -- and -- -- -- and I did make my bank which is.
I think what's really important for us to realize is that.
No one was talking about the in the wealth inequality and and the wealth gap before occupy came on and if they have a umbrella message it's that.
Now how do we get our wealth inequality can not be so great.
That's that's where you start seeing the fragmentation.
And you know what.
I get to choose a lot of different types of laundry detergent why not have a lot of different options -- -- make America more -- I didn't consider that -- but I guess your car isn't it explain your beat beat view organize -- about it much I could say I think what bothered a lot of folks about it too.
To John's point and other wall streeters who tried to hire some of the people who were frustrated and weren't.
-- weren't responding to this idea they needed to get a job when even offered the chance they didn't take pope's words on -- on it and and and I'm wondering if that eludes.
Their cause when when they just seemed more prone to protest -- they are.
To get a job even when Alford.
Well I mean the first the ball I think that to just hold the job fair few.
Get back at people who are -- testing the wealth inequality is not necessarily a way to get these people employed com.
But if that would take him up I don't can you really are the reason the motivation whether it's conference the -- so what cameras.
Here's an -- I really had a lot of -- over going to be our leases.
Who's you know a -- of that a big the big deal on Wall Street.
He hired her she ends up doing very well for -- believes and starts were confirmed she's doing great a former occupier.
Who work within the system -- to triumph in the system these guys want to.
Yeah that's happened in whining about it.
But but I think that that.
We have to allow let's face for that -- is what I'm trying to say is that whether it's the Tea Party or whether it occupy.
People on the fringe should really be allowed to see protests and no definitely he was -- well he's a good exactly leave it to me -- -- that -- -- so great about America.
But when you suddenly -- hit I hit Marty I know you don't like him but he parting words -- -- system.
Work within the system to -- system and elected eighties I I don't I don't I don't -- -- -- I I don't know -- I would necessarily agree that everyone on the Tea Party is working in the political you know the example that you're -- but I do want to highlight that.
That Occupy Movement does things every day they've been able to get Cuomo -- reversed his on his staff on the millionaire tax -- you know they've kept this idea.
While you're -- -- them.
There's your credit reactive process with with getting Cuomo would have went on that.
I'm I'm getting I am -- occupied with a piece of it absolutely.
I mean they're feeding the hungry and hopefully end right there were able to get up our approach -- the biomedical lab an -- night.
He's hurt small protests that.
You know that don't get covered by the mainstream media but this is what they're doing every day and I think it's actually more -- like you said with a Tea Party they went local.
I think it's actually more effective for them to get local.
Figure out what they want to do locally and then have that emerged as a much larger movement at the end of the day movement take a long.
Time to get it started.
They're numbers are Brian and what they want -- had to move once he does a movement takes time it -- numbers to a mass they're going the other way.
The numbers -- -- now now they might change that but I'm going the other way.
It does take numbers and numbers come at flashpoint.
So -- you think that there were a 100000 people with.
With fired back then planning the march on Washington or do you think that wrote the park was the first person to -- in that bus to get arrested then you have no idea about.
If you write -- you and I know bearing the -- 300 -- -- -- and stability and support Rosa -- to have another thing coming.
I'm not my -- I know that -- there re not my Doctor King.
No reason why Doctor King started talking about socialism within a democracy you ladies -- -- -- king who could -- -- proud I -- I have rowdy rally and we got in on how Danielle.
I had studied under Diane Nash.
OK and let me tell you I don't Bernard lap -- -- rain Martin Luther King James block that.
He ended by talking about the pork people's movement aren't telling -- early on in early but I would -- -- ruling in his grave right now we're back and you're not white watch Martin Luther King.
By trying to make it seem like he did not care.
About the wealth inequality united and I I don't undoubtedly that you voted say you warn you -- you are making it easier to edit these what are you saying is.
-- I approach adds there's no good -- they are low iron and it.
These it's now down.
And I watch when -- get punched in the face by cops.
I think that that's taking a huge risk.
Are aliens I wish we had more time actually grateful we don't -- is a very good having a Malia.
In the meantime Brian Robertson is here to the attack.
