Davos billionaires diss Occupy

Soros is in the minority, from this Bloomberg report on Davos:

Some billionaires aren’t interested in talking about income inequality or the Occupy movement at Davos.

“It’s all for the television cameras,” Henry Ross Perot Jr., 53, chairman of Hillwood Development Corp., his family’s real estate development firm, said in a phone interview from his office in Dallas. “They usually tell the organizers when and where they will protest in advance.”

[Russian 10-figure tycoon, Roustam Tariko] echoed Perot’s views about Occupy protesters.

“The current movement has no strategy and purpose and hence doesn’t look serious to me,” he wrote.

Remember:

To the 1%:

1. "What is your demand?" means "How much is the bribe?"

2. "Who are your leaders?" means "Who do we kill?"

If the billionaires dismiss Occupy, I'm happy. So much the worse for them.

Costello: Look Lambert, if you're the organizer, you must know all the protesters.

Lambert: I certainly do.

Costello: Well you know I've never met the guys. So you'll have to tell me their names, and then I'll know who's playing on the team.

Lambert: Oh, I'll tell you their names, but you know it seems to me they give these OWS protesters now-a-days very peculiar names.... Well, let's see, we have on the bags, Who's your Leader, What's your Demand, I Don't Know is Our Third Party...

Costello: That's what I want to find out.

Lambert: I say Who's your Leader, What's your Demand, I Don't Know's our Third Party.

Costello: Are you the organizer?

Lambert: Yes.

Costello: You gonna be the coach too?

Lambert: Yes.

Costello: And you don't know the fellows' names?

Lambert: Well I should.

Costello: Well then who's your leader?

Lambert: Yes.

Costello: I mean the fellow's name.

Lambert: Who.

Costello: The leader.

Lambert: Who.

Costello: The one in first place.

Lambert: Who.

Costello: The guy playing...

Lambert: Who is our leader!

Costello: I'm asking YOU who's your leader.

Lambert: That's the man's name.

Costello: That's who's name?

Lambert: Yes.

Costello: Well go ahead and tell me.

Lambert: That's it.

Costello: That's who?

Lambert: Yes.

PAUSE

Costello: All I'm trying to find out is what's the guy's name in first place.

Lambert: No. What is our demand.

Costello: I'm not asking you who's your demand.

Lambert: Who's our leader.

Costello: One thing at a time!

Lambert: Well, don't change the players around.

Costello: I'm not changing nobody!

Lambert: Take it easy, buddy.

Costello: I'm only asking you, who's your leader?

Lambert: That's right.

Costello: Ok.

Lambert: All right.

PAUSE

Costello: What's the guy's name in first place?

Lambert: No. What is our demand.

Costello: I'm not asking you who's your demand.

Lambert: Who's our leader.

Costello: I don't know.

Lambert: That's our third party, we're not talking about it.

Costello: Now how did I get to your third party?

Lambert: Why you mentioned its name.

Costello: If I mentioned your third party's name, who did I say is the third party?

Lambert: No. Who's our leader.

Costello: What's your leader?

Lambert: What's our demand.

Costello: I don't know.

Lambert: That's our third party.

Costello: There I go, back on your third party again!

PAUSE

Costello: Would you just stay on your third party and don't go off it.

Lambert: All right, what do you want to know?

Costello: Now who's your third party?

Lambert: Why do you insist on putting Who as our third party?

Costello: What am I putting as your third party.

Lambert: No. What is our demand.

Costello: You don't want who as your demand?

Lambert: Who is our leader.

Costello: I don't know.

Lambert & Costello Together:Third party!
