To Any Fans of Peter Schiff..

He's getting hit hard on his FB because of that hatchet-job. Show him some love, would you?

https://www.facebook.com/PeterSchiff

Maybe ask (politely) for the entire 3hr interview while you're at it.

https://www.facebook.com/thedailyshow

Here's a small sample..

"Peter "Mentally Ret**ded" Schiff"

"HI PETER!!! I think you are a f....g c..t!!!! Thanks for listening!!!"

"Your a F.....g Idiot . Lets see how you change your mind if you had somone you love be mentally challenged..B...h"

"This man is an idiot!!!"

"so apparently your interview was "out of context" and misquoted. Mate, you used the word Retarded, no one dubbed that in using your voice. In Australia, you're what we'd refer to as a wanker. You should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself."

" You have got to be the biggest jerk on the planet. I have a son with special needs. I hope all of your businesses fail, you bigot."

" After your "Daily Show" segment I will "maaaaaybe" tell everyone I know to remove their funds from anything managed by you. Shame on you for de-valuing the whole spectrum of humanity!!!"

"I know nothing about you, your business ethics or lack thereof. I had never even heard of you until about 5 minutes ago when I read an article in which you were interviewed about the minimum wage and fast food workers. What you said about the worth of "mentally retarded" workers speaks volumes about your character and general intelligence level.
I need no other information on you or your work.... Your gross display of ignorance clearly highlights your underlying issues with a low sense of self-worth. "

" Just read your little article regarding what YOU think the "mentally retarted" are worth...SHAME ON YOU! It is people with logic like yours that put limits on people and prevent others from seeing their true value. I hope and pray that you are not a parent and spreading these beliefs to any children. I can tell you this you jackass...my son is worth more than any amount of money you have in any bank account! You are a shining example of why God gives children like my son to people like me...and NOT to you. Someone needs to slap the stupid right out of you!"

" ASSWIPE"

" I'm pretty sure that you are worth the least"

Biggest mistake of his career

Biggest mistake of his career and he should have known better. they always do a hatchet job on conservatives/republicans..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

.

Could be. Depends on how you approach the situation.

Let's not forget, Peter was

Let's not forget, Peter was not talking about mentally challenged people being worth $2 an hour, his point was that perhaps their labor is worth $2 an hour. Those are two very different things.

Be nice, but be firm.

Coming Economic Collapse - Peter Schiff RT America

Don't be distracted. The President is threatening Bond Holders with default.

That's the turd in the punchbowl.

This does bring up an

This does bring up an extremely grave reality that is going to hit America in the coming years. With the extreme rise in Autism in the last few years, all these people are going to hit the job market in the next decade or so. We are going to face a labor crisis in which young mentally injured people who are unable to function in high level jobs are going to need to be supported or find some way to support themselves. Either way this is a massive financial burden.

I just hope we can find ways to reverse autism through alternative treatment to help save the betrayed and lost generation the elite has created...

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Maybe it was calculated

Look at how much publicity the duck guy got for saying something wildly unpopular.

Dunno.

If anything Peter Schiff said

If anything Peter Schiff said was wrong, maybe there would be a reason to be upset.

This is great though. It's going to cause people to talk and it gives us all the chance to educate people. And you'll find yourself debating basic economics with morons all the time. I was engaged in some of that last night. They will never learn, but you will convince everyone around them when you expose their stupidity. If everyone wants to bash Peter Schiff, use that as an opportunity.

Well put!

Why don't people understand basic economics?

Why have a law that prevents people from working?

Yeah, the worst will blow over providing he keeps his mouth shut

Yeah, the worst will blow over providing he keeps his mouth shut and not feed the bears the kind of red meat they're drooling for.

Of course, he's wrong about the value of the mentally retarded in the workplace: they're actually worthless from a capital standpoint. They are included in the workforce as a matter of charity and humanity, not as a body of productive labor.

The people who are freaking out about his statement should remind themselves of how they felt 20 or 20 years ago, when it was still shameful to have siblings or relatives who are retarded: they kept their traps shut about the situation and got on with their lives as best they could.

They should remember how lucky they are to be able to celebrate their loved ones' disabilities through aggressive raging denunciation of someone else's analysis of the true capital value of labor.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

thats not necessarily correct

The market has to determine each individuals value. With a minimum wage, yes you are correct. Without a minimum wage labor markets would clear and we would have a clearer picture of human capital worth.

Séamusín

Yes, I agree - the market determines the worth.

Warning - non "PC" statement coming...

How many minimum wage jobs only require the mental capacity of a retarded (meaning less advanced) intellect?

It really doesn't matter if you have a bachelors degree or you never graduated high-school, if the job you are being paid to perform only requires a 6th or 8th grade I.Q... then that's what the job is worth. Being over educated (or over I.Q.'d) for your job doesn't mean you should be paid more.

I know multiple people working in an auto factory that "retarded" themselves because they went to work drunk or drank at lunchtime... now these are the folks that should make $2.00 per hour.

I wouldn't sweat it.

I wouldn't sweat it. Progressives are gonna hate anything Peter Schiff has to say. Schiff isn't exactly adept at diplomacy, but he doesn't seem to care that he regularly pisses folks off so I doubt he's loosing sleep over this reaction. Probably getting a kick out if it.
