New York's Bloomberg says protesters trying to destroy jobs, "What they're trying to do is take the jobs away from people working in this city," Bloomberg said on his weekly radio show, adding that the protests "aren't productive" and weren't good for tourism. "If the jobs they are trying to get rid of in this city -- the people that work in finance, which is a big part of our economy -- go away, we're not going to have any money to pay our municipal employees or clean our parks or anything else."

You know what else creates lots of jobs? Prostitution. It's still the oldest profession on earth. Also, heroin and meth sales. I hear that there are lots of dope addicts out there. When I watch "Breaking Bad" and the TV news, I notice these kind of businesses are still booming unlike the rest of our economy.

Child porn, too, employs all sorts of people both directly and indirectly. People like NBC Dateline's Chris Hansen would be sadly unemployed, but if those freeloading kids stealing our tax dollars with their taxpayer-funded school lunches and socialist public educations could finally become a productive part of the economy. If only Big Government would only abolish all those oppressive "Child Labor Laws" and allow the our industries to thrive and help pay for all our municipal employees. Think now about what a wonderful world that could be.

Of course, any one of those now illegal professions would be MORE productive and LESS damaging to society than any industry that ever was involved in selling credit default swaps. But you know what they say: if you BAN collateralized debt obligations, only CRIMINALS will sell collateralized debt obligations.

But as Eric Cantor says the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations are nothing like from the "Tea Party". Which is true! The "Tea Party" was a fake astro-turf creation of Rove-bots that was bought and paid for by the Koch brothers. As the critics and everyone says the "Occupy Wall Street" is unorganized and without any formal political agenda.
