Well, I guess Herman Cain is OK with big banks who were bailout paying out big bonuses. Don't get how that's fair though.
"Republican presidential contender Herman Cain amplified his criticism Sunday of the growing Occupy Wall Street movement, calling the protesters 'jealous' Americans who 'play the victim card' and want to 'take somebody else's' Cadillac." (LA

Nassim Taleb, author of "The Black Swan" and a New York University professor, discusses the "Occupy Wall Street" protest and his view of the global banking system.

This quote sure is going to go over well with the Occupy Wall Street protesters. I'm sure this will stir some things up and give them a jolt of energy to continue their efforts. Make more signs.

“Most people view it as a ragtag group looking for sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll,” said one top hedge fund manager.
“It’s not a middle-class uprising,” adds another veteran bank executive. “It’s fringe groups. It’s people who
