    People enjoy laughing at OWS too. Turn about, as they say, is fair play.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    How would you feel if the government pressured your employer to cut your salary, just because someone thought you made too much money?

    You mean like, say, if I were a teacher?

    The government is their employer, so that's not the same. Now if Queen Elizabeth pressured the US government to lower US teacher salaries, then you would be comparing apples to apples, very silly apples, but still apples.

    But its all ok, government employees think they are underpaid already, even though the CBO says they are drastically overpaid.
