Reality Comes To 'Occupy Wall Street'

What happens to their world when those who "occupy Wall Street" - who are content to talk in the abstract about "the rich" and their "paying their fair share" and "giving back to those less fortunate" - meet one of those "one-percenters" who's prepared top engage them in debate?

Peter Schiff, CEO and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc., and regular TV commentator, goes to the den of thieves and starts asking questions.

This is absolutely fascinating:

He doesn't get any straight answers but the way he cracks the Leftist worldview - and does it so easily - is a wonder to behold.

The moment of truth: Mr. Schiff tells the crowd gathered around him, in response to their telling him he needs to pay his fair share: "I'm probably paying more income taxes than everyone around me combined. So I'm paying more than my fair share now."

The reality in this debate?  The rabble don't want fairness. They want what others have without having to earn it.  It's that simple.

Not a bad trick. If you can get away with it.
