[Video Link] (I recommend skipping to the 2 minute mark so you don't have to watch her taking a cab ride into the city.) Former Saturday Night Live regular Victoria Jackson does a fine job of not responding to the people she interviews at Occupy Wall Street. Instead, she sticks to her script of questions and claims. Here are some of my favorites:
"Right now, 50% of people pay taxes and 50% do not. So if everyone gets free stuff who is going to pay for it?"
"Oprah Winfrey had nothing and now she's a billionaire. That's capitalism!"
"If you want everyone to be equal, how are you going to make them equal in good looks and smart brains? Everyone's not created equal."
"I'm in the Tea Party. We're not violent. We don't even leave litter!"
"How come Van Jones is promoting violence for you guys? You know Van Jones is a communist."
"So you don't think Obama is stirring up racial and class warfare and its straight out of Rules for Radicals written by Saul Alinsky?"
"The real issue is, Obama is a Marxist and he's stirring up racial divide and class warfare on purpose!"
I think Jackson deserves to be congratulated for publishing this video, because the people she interviews (particularly the second guy that she spends about 10 minutes with) obliterate every claim and loaded question she delivers. Plus, I like her because she plays the ukulele.

Ok, it’s not just solar powered. It’s also an anti-theft, waterproof marvel that keeps my phone’s power bar from ever getting into the red.Sure the idea seems obvious now – tuck a gigantic solar powered battery pack into an exposed slot and turn the wearer into a walking energy harvester. Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
All the filters in the world won’t save your smartphone pics from a shaky hand. To really step up your mobile photography game, you’ll need some kind of mount to hold it steady. You could buy a smartphone attachment for a conventional camera tripod, but who wants to carry that kind of gear everywhere they […]
The forced transition from analog to digital TV signals was probably met with relative indifference from people with Netflix subscriptions and the “I don’t even own a TV” snoots. But anyone living in the vast swaths of the country that don’t have guaranteed high-speed internet, broadcast TV is a perfectly valid (and 100% free) way […]
When Apple revealed the new MacBook in 2016, one of the biggest issues raised with the notebook’s new design (aside from ire over the slew of new adapters you’d inevitably have to buy) was the removal of one of its most beloved proprietary features, the magnetic charging cable. Thankfully, third-party peripheral makers have taken up […]
