It’s nice to see him smashing Phil Donahue like a bowl of eggs. This clip is roughly 30 years old yet we see the same issues involved as we do today, the very same ones. If our friends occupying various public areas across the country spent less time beating drums and speaking in platitudes and more time listening to the discussion that has taken place in the past, I think they would be occupying the US capitol and various congressional offices and spending less time defiling public parks.
I’m with you to a point occupiers. There are certainly some criminals that messed up our economy. The thing is, that while some of the fault lies with banks, the majority of it lies with our political types (in both parties).
After all, a basic understanding of what actually caused this economic unpleasantness would give the occupiers the revelation that without government intervention, incentivization and general mucking about of the usual variety we wouldn’t be where we are. However, now that the damage was done, we have to take the medicine to fix it. The best medicine is time and a hard look at the perverse regulatory and incentive structure that got us here in the first place, not doing more regulation and intervention of dubious value and motivation.
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions as we all know. This is how it works, government creates a problem than they come up with a solution that makes it worse.
