Would Jesus Occupy Wall Street?

I was watching CNN this morning and this was one of the questions they asked. I think I can answer this about as well as anyone just by citing the gospels. Mark and Luke both address this same event, but here's Matthew's take:

"And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves." -- Matthew 21:12-13
