    In 2007-2008, 23 presidents received more than $1 million. As recently as 2004, no college president had broken the seven-figure threshold.

    Now all you Occupy supporters and Wall Street haters what you to think about this:

    Which group would MOST of the Occupy protesters have possible contact with Wall Street firms where evil brokers work OR
    colleges where these millionaire presidents preside?
    BUT which group would have more direct use of the student protesters funds:

    College President who gets their salaries from students tuition OR
    well most of those students where they trading equities???

    I'm just asking why these Occupiers didn't protest the college tuition money to pay these millionaire salaries or what they did protest a group they supposedly HAD NO direct contact with..i.e. evil Wall street brokers!

    Ranks of Millionaire College Presidents Grow

    Come on you elite educationalistas!

    Defend your millionaire college presidents and the screwing of their students which is FAR worse then any Wall Street broker i.e. the brokers earn commissions from productivity!
    College Presidents get paid for begging! Yea some salaries for begging $1 million+ a year!
    400 making more then $500,000! All from students that have to go into huge debts just to pay these millionaires salaries!!!

    Hypocrites all!

    Small potatoes compared to those you defend. Where are the jobs? Taxes haven't gone up and won't, unless the Republicans are totally insane. Why are you shilling for them, while they collect their year-end bonuses for losing money?!?!

    Ah.. small potatoes eh?

    Tell me where did you get hurt by those big bad evil Wall street brokers?
    Did you have millions that they managed?
    Exactly what did those people that collected bonuses do to you that makes them the bad guys?

    I have yet to understand where the problem became yours?

    Fannie/Freddie.. they were doing what Congress told them to do!
    Guarantee that poor people could get loans backed by the government!
    And the Banks forced by CRA had to make the loans.
    Banks then forced by FDIC to get rid of toxic loans resold them AFTER all
    they were because of Congress backed by the full faith and credit!
    So the brokers repackaged, made commissions what is wrong with that?
    After all Congress told them to do it!
    You not being to bright probably won't figure this statement out but it goes to the core of the financial crisis that was caused politicians who pushed the CRA..

    Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have an ``effective'' federal guarantee, not the
    "full faith and credit'' of the U.S. government, Federal Housing Finance Agency Director James Lockhart said after the hearing. That does give them effectively a guarantee of the U.S. government.''

    The people who were infamously pepper sprayed by CAMPUS POLICE at UC Davis were part of Occupy UC Davis,

    who were in part protesting high tuitions as well as high salaries paid administrators in the face of cutbacks elsewhere.

    So to the OP:

    Shut up.:lol:
