So often we think of "protesters" as people with too much time on their hands. But 86% of you responding readers agree that the wealth held by CEOs and their high rolling investors deserves to be called out for its hypocrisy. Is corporate American really the place to depend on to get our economy to recover and build jobs?

If even someone like Warren Buffett makes a public statement that income inequality (and too-low taxation of the super-wealthy) is a serious problem, one has to think these issues warrant serious concern. If we don't care about the well-being of our own children and our own society, then what do we stand for? And who are these Occupy Wall Street protesters, if not our children?

Right to protest: YES going to peoples place of business or homes to do it: NO Are the CEO's and Corp. big shots out of touch and greedy:YES Joe these arn't my children, my children go to work, pay there obligations and VOTE......... oh by the way I read that Mr. Buffett who claims he is taxed to little owes the government about a billion in back taxes Socialism dosen't work folks and I am NOT given the government my money so the "Lazy" can get more Lazy.
