And too many folks don't understand that or do understand that.
And they're just trying to purposely cause a disruption.

I agreed with geo and -- that it it look it's the system it's it's if you like it then.
It needed to be fixed but the problem is it's our system it's -- best system in the world you're passionate but.
You apologize -- Oh and yes I apologize then went.
Look Eric I do this every week I come home and have a town hall -- least one or two every weekend that I'm home.
And some look you know me I am passionate -- and sometimes I step over the line when I do I always try to apologize look.
I think this president is destroying this country.
I don't mean that to be personal because I don't know the man but I know -- policies are and I think we as a country are better off.
Focus on the policies and make it about that.
-- migrated -- my -- is your passionate and and I just I agree gun on almost and just about everything he had he had said there.
Let me exodus of watching the Occupy Wall Street -- the crowd gets bigger it's bigger -- against crony capitalism but.
Meanwhile all I'm seeing is crony socialism going -- from the White House.
Two you know -- the Democrat left just pushing for more entitlements isn't the same thing what are they aren't.
Technically -- the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street fighting the same thing they just can't focus it in the right direction now.
Got nowhere not at all and I know you don't -- you can't believe that look I'll tell you what.
Your your profession not you but the media has been protecting and -- -- this Occupy Wall Street stuff.
Ever since it began -- and I'm tired of it it's at the point now where it is trying to attempting to.
Disrupt the American way a life that's anti American.
Everything this little and I am -- gonna caught a movement.
As far as I'm concerned it's -- it's it's a well organized well funded effort.
I think by far left.
Anti American folks who do want to bring down what this country's all about and I'll tell you what Eric I think the Obama administration.
I think a lot of Democrats.
Had their hands on this and and and put their arms around it when it first started they encouraged -- And this president Eric he's encouraged class warfare he's encouraged Americans to go at it with other Americans.
He's part of -- that's that's not American and what they ever becomes not I was trying to say that -- Tea Party is anti American or anti capitalism simply -- Tea parties is is fighting bigger government is fighting the crony socialism that's going on in DC.
Occupy Wall Street seems to have a problem -- that type of behavior that ideology.
But they're mad at some sort of at some.
No bad guided they decided to put up against -- wall call themselves big Wall Street bankers when the reality is -- of what goes on his facilitated from DC from the White House and 16100 Pennsylvania Avenue.
You you you you when you look at what Occupy Wall Street advocates which is basically some sort of socialist vision.
Where government takes care of everybody.
You can't help but think their misguided.
Now I will say there are probably people in this effort who know exactly what they're doing because Eric I think a part of what they're trying to do.
This year and next.
Is -- dropped the American markets and -- sort of a chaos.
In our electoral system I really think that's part of what they're trying to deal.
But look when -- when you look at what they advocate.
I mean forgive student -- what is your honestly -- -- I don't I know what they're against hedge don't know what they're for -- that's not I'm not a look I'm not even have -- I'm not even joking I watch Bill Clinton over the weekend CP exact.
Same thing if if if President Clinton doesn't know what they're for our moral -- -- I was little.
You know -- you know what well conservative you don't -- -- -- Eric in a way that's a game that president Clinton's plan and that's a gain that the -- playing again not you.
I think the media I think pres Obama and President Clinton.
Know exactly what they're four when this movement's first and I'm not gonna caught a movement when these protests first began.
They put out a memorandum of their their wish list of fourteen to fifteen things that they wanted to accomplish and it was basically a free everything right for everybody right.
It -- which is not American and so we I I think the media does know what they're advocating but if they he admitted that Eric.
They'd be laughed debt.
And the protests would be discredited.
