My brother-in-law Robert is not quite as clueless as some, about how the much of the world feels about Wall Street and Wall Street bankers, but that doesn’t mean he gets it.

According to Grace, he had an eye opener this weekend. A good friend from college was in town to join him for the Giant’s game, sometime during the weekend the subject of the Occupy Wall St. protests came up and Robert was less than complementary in his opinions. To which his friend ripped into the whole bankster mentality and suggested that Robert get out of Manhattan for a while to see life through different eyes. His friend, quite likely another one percenter, is a Silicon Valley software exec and is probably one of the last people Robert expected to see him and his business in such a light.

The Governor of the Bank of Canada (Canada's central bank) has called the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations "entirely constructive".

They hide behind the name "banker" but they're really traders working for speculative trading companies.
