Well at least their bonuses are frozen to 2010 levels...
Not good for Warren Buffet and his reputation for fortune telling.
More bailout people, more bailout. There is plenty of money to go around
It's the American way, dontcha know!
A government bailout is the opposite of capitalism. The government robbed us by betting our money on a bad investment (like they have many times). The corporation did what it's suppose to... try to turn a profit using whatever means are available. It should have been allowed to fail.
Saying AIG robbed us is like being mugged on the street and then blaming the bar where the criminal spent the money.
Thanks Literal Whiskeyguy...
This is what I hate about these OWS faggots. "The bankers stole our money maaaaaaaannnnnnn!!!!" No they didn't fuckwad, our politicians stole our money and GAVE it to the bankers with basically no strings attached maaaaaaannnnnn!!!!
I would still like to know how, in a world where I do my job right & don't cost anyone any money, I can get paid approx. $50k per year, and these fucktards, losing $4-fucking-billion, can take home a yearly 9 mil? HOW THE FUCK DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL?!?!?!? Fuck is this world bent.
because they kick back a portion of that to the politicians
What! and the corporation had nothing to do with it? They bought and paid for every politician they needed for this sort of bullshit to happen and so much more. Fuck the banks AND the dirty politicians.....Obama=Bush.
You're very welcome.
Corporations are just entities that function to the best of their ability in the environment they operate in. The government shouldn't have the power to give bailouts to these banks, or have obnoxious power over any other aspect of the market... then there would be no reason to buy and sell politicians.
You'll see much better results by limiting the government than depending on the people who run it to do the right thing.
But see, they need to pay their CEOs that much, because how else will they attract the best people to run their company into the ground?
Every corporation has the right, and in fact, the obligation to use any LEGAL means necessary to make money for their share holders. (Hell, most people cast their votes for whomever they feel will benefit them most, right?) If that means donating to politicians, so be it. All any politician has to do is grow a pair of balls and say "NO". There is nothing wrong with trying to (legally) buy someone off, there is everything wrong with having no integrity and allowing yourself to be bought like a fucking whore.
Great point. If the government wasn't so powerful, the scumbag banks wouldn't have had anyone to buy off or bail them out. Yet another unintended consequence of big government.
"A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have". - Gerald Ford
And if that whore cheerleader didn't wear such a short skirt, the football team wouldn't have any reason to raype her.
Exactly, sir. I also realize that because of big government corporations are obligated to do whatever it takes to survive, buying off politicians is par for the course. This government stinks on ice.
I'm glad you agree but there are tons of dummies who think the answer is more and stronger government. People really are complete shit.
So who is who is your analogy? Are you saying the corporations are rayping the innocent little government rotf, or is the government rayping the people (I agree). If you're saying the corporation is rayping the people through bailouts than the government is the one holding the cheerleader (people) down and egging them on.
How you cannot put most of the blame on government is beyond me... and this is no party-line thing, it applies to the Bush bailouts also. Corporations cannot take money from the people through threat of incarceration, the government can. Which is more like raype?
Not saying it's a direct analogy, just showing that merely making an analogy doesn't make your argument any better.
Starting to sound like a socialist.
Ummm... Bush was the one who did the AIG bailout, fuckwad.
Not really sure why I was called a 'fuckwad', very hurtful, sir. Bush=Obama, they are both big government douchbags.
