Why Do They Ignore This Bunch?

What is it about Wall Street that gets the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters' panties in a bunch?  Maybe its the annual compensation some of the individual "movers and shakers" are bringing down.

$62,294,116

$61,185,933

$44,500,000

$38,070,000

$36,000,000

$34,806,250

$32,832,044

$32,700,000

$30,007,280

$28,647,180

Obscene.

Especially when you consider the fact that these "movers and shakers" get paid that kind of money - in a year - to move footballs and basketballs and shake golf clubs (and, in the case of Peyton Manning - at $38,070,000 - sitting on his butt and doing nothing).

But not a peep from those "occupiers" about LeBron James or Tiger Woods.

Why is that?

While we're at it, why don't the OWS kids protest Steven Spielberg ($85 million in 2009 earnings), James Cameron ($50 million), Ben Stiller ($40 million), Tom Hanks ($36 million)?

Or the highest paid of all? Oprah Winfrey at $290 million.

You make sense of it.  I can't.
