I didn't like how he kept repeating that it is a fact without backing it up. Saying something is a fact doesn't make it one. Kinda soured the rest of it for me.

I love that 'Sold Out' pic, Sassan!  I'm not sure what this has to do with Ratigan's rant, however.  You do realize that, unlike you living on your parent's dime, he is a successful business analyst, having served as the Global Managing Editor for Corporate Finance at Bloomberg News Service, amongst other highly regarded positions.  What do you bring to the table, other than a lack of coherent argument?  Got a few A's on your last report card?  Good for you - now get out into the work force and start contributing to the economy, ok?

And you deleted rest of the pictures because??

And you can make judgements on me, that is fine. You have no idea what I do for a living or my life but you can go ahead and make all the speculations that suits your fantasies and needs. But I find it disingenuous to delete the pictures showing some of the filth and conspiracy theorists that highlight the "Occupy" protesters.

I didn't delete them, nor can I delete them.  I assume one of the mods deleted them because you are spamming the thread.  Thanks for trying to contribute something other than student debt, though!

I sent you an email about it. I meant to delete all but the first one. Feel free to re-post all of them if you like, IN ONE POST.

Thank  you.

If you would like to actually address any of the points made by Ratigan, I would love to hear your perspective.  I know he uses a lot of big words and talks about financial matters that you don't readily understand, but feel free to pull out a dictionary and economics text book and look up the information.  I am very interested in what you have to cut and paste on the topic.

I have posted this all over. I agree the music is overboard. I also think, the reality of The Occupation is something that is hard to understand if you are not there. Every individual I am aware of that thinks they are a bunch of whiners have not taken the time to investigate it for themselves and have relied on passive (and slanted) opinions of others. I find it hard to discuss with those that don't take the time to know who they are ridiculing. I'm assuming this wont be as much of a problem on this site as those I reach out to around me.

Yes, well this video isn't even directly about the occupation, but about the problems that have lead to the economy being the way it is.  Ratigan has enough years covering the economy to support the statements he makes, and it is great to hear him express his frustration at what he has reported on, but been unable to do anything about, for so many years.
