Which celebrity is going to be named Time Magazine's "Person of the Year"? Wrong guess. They've won the lame award again by NOT picking a real person, such as Steve Jobs, but instead chose "The Protestor." Managing editor, Rick Stengel, explains their reason: "Everywhere, it seems, people said they'd had enough. Is there a global tipping point for frustration?"

True, everyone seems to be fed up with the FED. From Tea Partiers to Occupiers, we little people want to be heard. It's about time too. It's not fair that the government doesn't have to pay their bills or balance their budget like we do. They need to be more responsible with our money and learn accountability. They have forgotten that they work for us. Will they hear America's voices? We'll see.

Now, on to "real" celebs in the news...
