TFD Opinions: Private Sector vs. Public Sector

While I understand the motivation behind Occupy Wall Street, their efforts are misdirected. Do they really believe that protesting Wall Street is going to get Wall Street to change their ways? There is no chance of that happening. If you look at their demands, almost all of them will only be realistically implemented by one group...Congress. Granted, our current Congress is incredibly dysfunctional and unlikely to pass any quality legislation (considering they just declared pizza to be a serving of vegetables) but that doesn't mean they're not worth lobbying. Clearly, "Big Food" and pretty much every other industry has found a way to influence the decisions in Washington so maybe the occupiers could try that too.

Herman Cain on Pizza: More Meat, Less Vegetables

Chris Heath: What can you tell about a man by the type of pizza that he likes?

Herman Cain: [repeats the question aloud, then pauses for a long moment] The more toppings a man has on his pizza, I believe the more manly he is.

Chris Heath: Why is that?

Herman Cain: Because the more manly man is not afraid of abundance. [laughs]

Devin Gordon: Is that purely a meat question?

Herman Cain: A manly man don't want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza.
