    MoTs diary, but it is still all about education and the ability of the constituents in this clip and members of the OWS movement like MoT, who can understand and articulate what happened to the middle class at the hands of the unregulated financial industry.

    I truly believe that the wall street thugs really thought they would be able to get clean away with their robbery of the American wealth because they were using financial vehicles so complicated that they didn't understand them and so never expected us to figure out what had been done.

    And that was their mistake.  They assumed that we were as stupid as they were, as the tea party was and as their bought and paid for politicians were.  

    Joe Walsh wouldn't know a credit default swap if it bit him in the ass.  What really made him angry was that the woman who questioned him did know what a derivative was, what a toxic asset represented and the difference between an investment bank and a commercial bank.

    His anger was a typical defense mechanism that the ignorant employ when faced with those pesky fact thingys.

    •  Walsh's "hissy fits" are supposed to distract us (0+ / 0-)

      from reality. It isn't working Joe. It makes you look real crazy and I want to smack you back into reality when you do it.

      That women was way too smart for him. He had to shut her up.
