"Patrick Byrne, the CEO of Overstock.com, talked to The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur on Tuesday night at the 'Occupy Wall Street' demonstration in New York City’s Zuccotti Park. He described himself as a libertarian who was fond of the economic ideas of Milton Friedman. 'I think there’s a difference between Wall Street and capitalism,' Byrne said. 'I’m good with capitalism. I have a lot of trouble with Wall Street.'" [editor's note: This guy's "libertarian credentials" may be genuine; nothing he says in this article challenges the claim - SAT] (10/20/11)

    Byrne is a billionaire with a family of billionaires

    Did he join in and protest against billionaires not paying their fair share?
