    I don't know which is more pathetic; the guy ranting or the chick crying in the background.

    That's got to be a joke. If not, it's akin to national reporters always finding the most toothless, inbred hillbilly possible whenever a story breaks in Tennessee.

    Mr. Hall said that he grew up in New Mexico and that both his parents were politically active lawyers who were thrilled that he was pursuing a socially conscious life and was involved in the Occupy Wall Street protest. Mr. Hall said he attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and then transferred to Bard College in upstate New York because of its reputation as a socially conscious school.

    He had been renting in Washington Heights for the past two years while attending doctoral classes at Columbia University as a nonmatriculated student. He said that he supported his modest lifestyle with savings from working as a teenager and that he also had “a small trust fund” from his grandfather that he had not drawn from yet. For the past four weeks, he has eaten free meals and has slept in the park.

    What is the help those two wanted? You want me to come hang out in the park 24/7?

    I have no idea what is going on in that video. And if he is the child of two lawyers and has a trust fund, he should be turning that trust fund over to "the people" since that is effectively what he is lobbying for.

    Let's say I am actually sympathetic to what I perceive to be the concerns of the protesters. Let's say I even stipulate a massive redistribution of the nation's wealth. Here's my question: How do we then go about generating the type of wealth they want distributed? Am I missing something?

    No. They have no mechanism in mind. I imagine the conversation would naturally turn towards a socialist setup of a South American variety as "the answer."

    Honestly, what they are protesting is the entire way of life here. The best way to placate them would be to allow willing states to run as a "socialist experiment" and let folks move there that want in on it.

    Or we could just "unleash the dogs."

    I am willing to bet that this goes on well into the election year.

    Marx was very clear on this issue. The proletariat rise up against the bourgeoisie and kill them. They takeover the factories, redistribute the labor and capital, and destroy the class mentalities of society. What would you do if you actually "invaded" J.P. Morgan and divided up the "labor"?

    Anh. Good on them, I suppose. Somebody handed me some "deferment" papers for student loans the other day. Willing to bet most did what I did... "Peace corps?" Fudge that.

    Am I supposed to have an answer for this?

    Don't look at me. The generation of capital without the production of anything of value is part of the problem, isn't it?

    I'm thinking out loud. No worries.

    a wealth tax being suggested is only a matter of time. mark my word.

    And if he is the child of two lawyers and has a trust fund, he should be turning that trust fund over to "the people" since that is effectively what he is lobbying for.


    amazing how one feels differently when it's their money isn't it?
