- Trying To Shatter Capitalism By Force

One of my closest friends is a senior staffer at the NYSE. Even he admits that with the advent of program trading the NYSE is little more now than a television studio with an interesting history. Virtually no business actually get's addressed there anymore.

And yet, these losers from the occupy movement keep going back there obstructing things. They were doing it when I was just a little research analyst, and they're still doing it now - trying to find a way to use force as a means to obstruct lawful and peaceful commerce where both parties operate by consent. I guess the whole thing isn't violent enough for them. They really prefer the reaction of a mob.

I was explaining our current political situation to a Swiss national who was visiting the states the other night. I told him that we have one party which believes in the basics of capitalism, and the other that it totally and unapologetically detached from reality. Like mental patients they even go so far to accuse the non crazy people of being the ones who really are crazy after all. "How can you form a political compromise with a person whose only goal is the destruction of the rich, regardless of the consequences of that destruction?" I asked.

But the thing that got him most was when I said that: "We have one party who is dedicated to protecting the unproductive by taking wealth from the productive and one that would rather reward winners than losers." "I cant' believe you just said that!" he said "In France, you'd be flayed alive for saying something like that in public. It's true of course, but that changes nothing... you still cant' say it!" In America I could not only say it, but I could say it in the middle of the bar at the Cornell Club in midtown Manhattan , arguably one of the most liberal strongholds of all academia.

Anyway... these Occupy people are the very people dedicated to America's destruction by force. I still think we should be using live ammunition on them the moment they so much as break a window.

I have. Along with "Honk if you've never seen a handgun fired from a moving Harley".
