Wall Street Can WHAT Itself? Ron James Heard The Occupy Message (VIDEO)

The flagging economy is starting to bug comedian Ron James.

“Pundits always use the same metaphor when they’re describing an unstable economy. They call it a rollercoaster,” James says in this clip from The Ron James Show: New Year’s Edition, which airs Jan. 1, 2012 at 9 p.m. ET on CBC TV.

“I beg to differ. Rollercoasters are fun. Worst case scenario riding one of those is you lose your lunch, not your house.”

He continues, “Even the experts don’t know what’s going on. I ran into my financial advisor at Chapters. He was buying a copy of Farming For Dummies.”

James says his heart goes out to young adults in their 20s, who can’t find a job and get blamed for it by older generations. He says the Occupy Movement, criticized by some for the lack of a cohesive purpose, actually had a very clear message for Wall Street: 'Go f*** yourself.'
