Stop the looting and start the prosecuting...something EVERYBODY regardless of political perspective should be behind. Break up the big bank monopolies and their power of money creation via unlimited fractional reserve lending would be a decent start. Running a ponzi scheme is a crime

Howard Stern is an entertainer/comedian. He is funny though...I liked his show. Let's note that he did something similar during the 2008 Presidential election, where he gave McCain policies and asked Blacks (who were voting for Obama) whether they agreed, and they mostly said yes! This doesn't surprise me as people are generally not bright.

The problem I had though? He did not do the same expose with McCain voters. I wonder why not???? He would have found the same ignorance...but that doesn't really tell the story he wanted so he just focused on those Blacks! This is no different.

Settle down. It's supposed to be funny. And Stern is generally left leaning. Either way, I absolutely believe that Sal and Richard did indeed go through a bunch of people only to find the same caliber of clueless hippies.

Here's their declaration

They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.
They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.
They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.
They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.
They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless animals, and actively hide these practices.
They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.
They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.
They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.
They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.
They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.
They have sold our privacy as a commodity.
They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.
They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.
They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.
They have donated large sums of money to politicians, who are responsible for regulating them.
They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.
They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives or provide relief in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantial profit.
They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.
They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.
They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.

[quote=SobroGuy;21282250]Sterpetron, had it not been for the violence of "left psychotics" you would still be a British subject, overtaxed, unrepresented, and a second class citizen begging for equal treatment, slavery would still be legal, women would not be allowed in school or work outside the home, and on and on...[quote]


You believe our Founding Fathers and the patriots who fought against the British were leftists?

For real?

I don't believe they are leftists, but Sterpetron would, which is why it was in quotes. Had it not been for these people who did advocate violence, we would not exist.

From the NY Post:

[LEFT]"Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops -- and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.
“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.
“I had my Mac stolen -- that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”

A $5.5K Mac? I don't think this guy is a 99%-er.

I guess whether you are a 1% or 99%, the one thing that unites us all is thievery.
