Did you know that Warren Buffet and his son is on the middle class side?
Howard Buffett, the Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A) director and son of Chairman Warren Buffett, said Wall Street protesters were provoked by abuses from corporations amid a widening disparity between rich and poor. “I think it takes that to make things happen sometimes,” Howard Buffett, 56, said of the demonstrations in an interview yesterday in Des Moines, Iowa. Over the past 15 years, “we saw large corporations really screw people.” Occupy Wall Street has drawn out protesters from New York to Seattle and gained empathizers among the top executives at Citigroup Inc. (C) and Blackrock Inc. Warren Buffett, the world’s third-richest person, has said he is concerned about inequity in the U.S. The younger Buffett, a farmer and philanthropist, said obtaining enough food has become more difficult for more people. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-10-13/howard-buffett-defends-occupy-wall-street-protests-to-make-things-happen-.html @TT- That is exactly what the neocons claim. They say that the protesters are jealous. When you talk like that you are proving them right. Not all rich people on greedy and I am telling Buffet is not a greedy rich pig. He worked his way to the top.

It doesn't make sense that all corporate heads and million and billionairre are not wanting things to change. As Americans have fewer, lower paying jobs, they spend less on what the corporations sell, so in the end, even corporations will lose.

When you are a billionaire, you can be on any side. I think it's just to make them feel better about themselves.

And Buffet’s own company hasn’t paid taxes in years, but you want us to believe he is on the side of the middle class?: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion/editorials/warren_buffett_hypocrite_E3BsmJmeQVE38q2Woq9yjJ

I really like Matt Taibbis list of 5 reform demands.. I think they are rallying points that both OWS protesters and Tea Partyers and Libertarians alike can get behind!
