Obama tells off Wall Street

I work for a large company that seems to "cost cut" on a monthly basis, and yet our executives are paid more and more ridiculous salaries while getting crazier and crazier benefits (does your job include a plane to fly your son to prep school?).  So today's talk of Obama calling the bonuses paid out on Wall Street "shameful" made me love him a little more.  I really don't see any way for these absurd salaries to be curbed in corporate america (because this sort of absurdity exists across all industries) but it does make me feel a little better that maybe one of these executives sitting in their golden bathtub lamenting the decline of their nest eggs from $100M to $50M is at least embarrassed.  


I hope there will be a way to help the middle class fight this sort of greed - it's just not right that someone who works their whole life getting paid a decent wage can't afford to send their kids to school or even pay their mortgage, let alone retire safely or have enough health coverage to not be afraid to go see their doctor.  

I don't know that way though, and don't think HOPE is going to do it.  How do you un-teach a culture of greed?

Great Question you ask... "How do you un-teach a country of greed?"

It will take the education of our next generation to lead our 'generation greed' out. This is a lofty goal , very ambitious indeed, but it can be done. We start with our future, our children.

Yes, I agree with everything to a T. I loooove Obama, GOOD TIMES ARE AHEAD!

Could you please update this site more? This is the most recent post and its from January. I have seen far too many anti-Obama sites and explinations about how he is burning this country to the ground. I need evidence to prove me otherwise, and I can't seem to find websites listing his accomplishments while in office, only his mistakes.

So quit and go work for someone else! If you live in America then you're most certainly not chained to your station. You're free to do whatever the fuck you want!! Go find another employer that's not so "greedy". Better yet, start your own fucking company and treat all of your employees the way you think they should be treated. If you're an American, I would assume you're not a fucking moron and you can make your own choices, but maybe I'm jumping to conclusions. Maybe you can't think for yourself and you need a socialist politician to do the little things for you. Maybe you ARE a fucking idiot. I hope not, but if you don't realize that you can quit your job and go somewhere else, maybe you do need to be breast fed by an extension of the government. While you're sucking on the government's tit, the rest of us will be securing our future by making big, grown up decisions!

..kinda like that great book, "Italian Heroes or the Second World War" this piece of crap list will be the shortest list on earth.

The guy's a pantload and a waste of skin.

Greed? I do believe someone voluntarily offered/paid these salaries and bonuses to the eeeeeevil corporate types.

If you had a skill/knowledge set that someone was willing to pay you in a mult-year, multi-million $$$$ contract, you would..... go fishing?

tatum said...

YES! great post! its definitely the $120mm paid out as wall street bonuses that are responsible for the crippling of our economy. it has NOTHING to do with the 12 trillion dollars obama has committed to spend in his first 10 months in office! these asshole bankers are the only companies in the entire USA that are turning a profit. lets tax those dirty bastards for fucking with Obama's sinking ship.. how dare they work tirelessly to restore a basic semblance of commerce in teh finance industry. piss on those driven, entrepreneurial individuals that ceaselessly busted their asses for 30 years to acquire their powerful positions in life. lets tax them to death and show our kids that hard work, dedication and focus are antiquiated notions of what equals success and continue to illustrate that sitting on your ass and handing over your freedoms to a leftist agenda can be just as satisfying as earning an honest dollar and creating wealth from your own ingenuity.

Hows that change working out for yah? Bills are going up, I STILL can't afford health care, college education outlook is very dim any which way you look at it.

roberto redford said...

If you can figure out how to graduate from Harvard....save a corporation a few BILLION dollars, and help keep the corporation alive............I think a few million or even hundred million dollars of compensation are due you.

Greed is what drives a capitalistic economy you fool! If you had any education you would understand that laws keep that greed in check.

Base your opinions on fact...not opinion....and you may do better in life you sweet little food stamp junkie.

Meredith Stone said...

obviously your post was a joke.. the union leaders take just as much as corporate leaders yet the union leaders do nothing to earn it. thank goodness some men are smart enough to actually EARN million dollar bonuses. stop being jealous and go work.

Richard Schaeffer said...

If you want to avoid cost cutting companies and you want a guaranteed job and benefits with job security? Work for the government or a bank. Or the new gov wing.... health insurance, the newest and best US stock..... like a bailed out bank.... guaranteed to grow. Our company loves OBAMA. I'm in medical billing.
