OMG -

Sources at Bank of America reported that executives were paid a total of 3.4 BILLION in bonuses BEFORE posting a 15 Billion loss on their statement???
SOMEONE SHOULD BE PAYING THAT BACK AND GOING TO JAIL!!!
THAT, IMHO, IS FRAUD!!!

A bit back someone posted up a collection of Thomas Jefferson quotes. Most were correct, some were not. This one is.

I think some folks need to refocus their priorities before this thing gets out of hand.


The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. - Thomas Jefferson

I guess they figured it wasn't kosher to hand out bonuses AFTER asking for bailout money...

Checks and balances should be set on TARP money...even though I don't agree with TARP

I'm not a real dickhead...but I acted like one in high school.

And I still am against any bailout. Any industry/business cannot compete, let them wither in the wind. Fuck them.

Any businessman wants a bailout, move to Russia or China.

If It's Too Big To Fail, Then it's Too Big To Exist.
That's the problem with vertical integration.
