Peter Schiff engages OWS and makes some good points

Watch and listen. Schiff makes a lot of points we’ve been hitting for years. It is a fundamental misunderstanding of capitalism and what it is that drives a lot of the OWS supporters to focus on the wrong entities. Schiff has a lively discussion with them. Interestingly some agree and some simply won’t take the ideological blinders off. You’ll quickly identify who is who.

    Mises Daily: Thursday, October 23, 2008 by George Reisman
    The news media are in the process of creating a great new historical myth. This is the myth that our present financial crisis is the result of economic freedom and laissez-faire capitalism.
    The attempt to place the blame on laissez faire is readily confirmed by a Google search under the terms “crisis + laissez faire.” On the first page of the results that come up, or in the web entries to which those results refer, statements of the following kind appear:
    /end
    It’s eleven pages, but through.
     

  • Ouch that was painful.  There aren’t too many of these protesters you can assume will ever turn their ship towards DC because they don’t have a clue.

  • Good example of the liberal stereotype in action.  Can’t win the debate?  interrupt and talk over your opponent.  Still can’t win?  start calling your opponent names.  Still can’t win?  Leave and declare yourself victorious.
