RUSH: Joe Bite Me was on our affiliate on the radio in Tampa and somehow the subject of Van Jones came up and Biden said, "Who is that?" Biden said he had no idea who Van Jones is. Van Jones, who is he? He was just the "green jobs czar" for your administration; and Biden said, "Oh, really?" Biden didn't know. Still doesn't know who Van Jones was.
You know, who's gonna break the news to these college kids that are protesting Wall Street? They're down on Wall Street for two weeks; they're all over the country. They're protesting, all these students. You know, I've got a list of the demands of these lunatics. (chuckling) It's just amazing. I just want to know who is going to tell them that Obama is going to ramp up collections on them. They're down there saying that we ought to forgive every dollar of debt in the world. Just retire it, just pretend that it doesn't exist. We're not gonna do that, obviously, but Obama has asked Congress for more power for debt collection agencies to go after deadbeats like these kids hanging around Wall Street on their student loans, by calling their cell phones.
Proposed list of demands for the Occupy Wall Street movement.
"Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending 'Freetrade' by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market ... Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals ... Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment." Why even go to school? Why care about education and why worry about employment if you're demanding "a guaranteed living wage"? "Demand number four: Free college education." Why? Why do you need free college education? If you're gonna get a living wage and you don't have to work, why go to college? Let's just ban college.
In fact, let's just ban colleges, let's put 'em out of business. "Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end..."Hey, dodo heads? That's happening. You young skulls full of mush down there making absolute jokes of yourselves, that's already happening. This regime is doing everything it can to put the fossil fuel industry out of business! "Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now. Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America's nuclear power plants.
"Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system. Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the 'Books.' World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the 'Books.'
"And I don't mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period." You like that one? (laughing) All right, let's do that. Let's just forgive all debt. Just wipe all debt out! Nobody owes anybody anything anymore. Get rid of it. Okay. "Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies. Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union." Why does this matter when nobody's gonna have to work? Because earlier it said that demand three is "a guaranteed living wage regardless of employment."
So why do you even need unions? Why do you need anything? If you're gonna get rid of debt, you don't need to worry about all rest of this. "These demands..." (chuckling) This is how it ends up. These are the proposed list of demands for the Occupy Wall Street movement posted by a guy named Lloyd J Hart at OccupyWallStreet.org -- and what do you bet this thing links back to Move America Forward or some other White House related place? Anyway, the last line after all the demands: "These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy." (laughing)
Look, we laugh. Let me tell you something, folks: They believe this. Let me tell you something. They are being taught this. There are adult college professors who teach this crap. Now, where do you think these lunkheads get this stuff? They didn't come out of the womb thinking this. I kid you not. They are being taught this in the deep, dark crevices of academe and peer pressure and everything else. But this is so nonsensical. What does it matter how many jobs are "created" when everybody gets "a living wage regardless of employment"? Where does the money coming from to give everybody a living wage? (laughing) They don't care. Who cares? If you just make the law that everybody gets a living wage, it's just gonna happen!
