Why Wall Street is being Occupied (video)

Wisdom Quarterly,

Are the anti-corporatist ideals of the Occupy Wall Street movement safe on Real Time with Bill Maher? “The don’t really have a coherent message,” Maher complained about the Wall Street “hippies.” His audience loves the O.W.S. ideology. But until candidate Alan Grayson passionately stood up for the cause and got a standing ovation, Maher and his panel mocked the Occupation ruthlessly for their “bongo drums,” disorganization, and incoherence.

What did Grayson say to get a standing ovation?
  • "Wall Street wrecked the economy three years ago -- and nobody's been held responsible for that."
  • "Not a single person has been indicted or convicted for destroying 20 percent of our national net worth accumulated over the course of two centuries."
  • "Wall Street has iron control over the economic policies of this country."
  • "One party is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wall Street, and the other party caters to them as well."

The Grayson message on The Rachel Maddow Show
  • "We should not have 24 million people in this country who can't find a full time job."
  • "We should not have 50 million people in this country who can't see a doctor when they're sick."
  • "We should not have 47 million people in this country who need government help in order to feed themselves."
  • "We should not have 15 million families who owe more on their mortgage than the value of their home."
