There’s a special place in hell …

OK – let me get this straight …

  • The Tribune Company’s in deep doo doo
  • The New York Times, on the verge of going tits up, takes out a second mortgage on their digs to the tune of about $225 million
  • McClatchy’s looking to cut their journalistic crown jewel
  • Businesses and newspapers left and right are riffing their ranks
  • Distressed displaced window company workers are about to enter Day 5 of peacefully protesting Bank of America‘s greedy bullheaded assbackwardness
  • Widespread panic over the New Great Depression tanks US Treasury yields to goose egg range
  • Some cities can’t even afford to recycle anymore
  • Entire school districts are going under
  • The bailout-a-palooza has cost us more than all US wars and government programs combined
  • The US economy has shed 1.9 million jobs this year (that’s 1.9 million people out of work, for you Republicans keeping score)
  • Our audaciously hopified president of change cautions us to be less hopified about our current (and future and future and future) situation …
  • ::: just to nutshell it for ya … :::

    … yet THIS greedy douchebag — who presided over his company’s $11.7  BILLION loss this year — is probably gonna get his manicured hands on the $10 million bonus he’s demanding.

    That about right?

    … cuz it doesn’t seem right …

      Not to be redundant, but Hoova! comes to mind. Find me an FDR!

      Oh, and Mr. Chief Executive Douchebag looks like the north end of a southbound horse. No sexy points for him.

      happiness is obama’s face on a milk carton 🙂 welfare is the answer. i hear the chinese like socialism but aren’t very kind to the press. capitalism does have it’s drawbacks but i wouldn’t trade it for anything else out there.

      haha – -no sexy points, indeed!!

      But Curious — the point isn’t that we need welfare (you seem fixated on that word …) but rather that part of the reason we got ourselves into this mess is the one for one, none for all thinking that’s taken over corporate America and had a terrible trickle-down effect on the rest of us.
      I think Thain is representative of the reprehensible practices that, if not roundly recognized as ethically ign’int, may need to be legislated as such.

      Go ahead, sugar — tell me I’m right (you know how it thrills me!)

      just one more trick to redistribute wealth. the new deal was just a plan to take the private sector and put it in the govts hands. it didn’t bring us out of the depression, ww2 did. i believe in helping people who really need it but not a penny for sorry folks wanting a handout.

      i don’t care if a man earns a trillion dollars and never gives one cent to charity if he gets it honest.

      At no point in the history of America have CEOs been as overpaid as they are today, and yet the economy is in its worst shape in 80 years. Whatever happened to value for money?

      i can’t totally defend the huge salries some make but i don’t understand a janitor at gm making 35 bucks an hr either. one thing is for sure, i don’t want politicians telling me how much money i am allowed to make. what if they were held to the same standard the big 3 ceo’s are? think they would work for 1 dollar a year? and they are only part time. the economy was looking pretty good to me until the dems took over congress 2 yrs ago. nancy slut bottom pelosi couldn’t get out of her personal govt paid jet long enough to get anything done. i’m still waiting for that first 100 days. and harry reed? is he even in washington?

      CEO’s get paid for how much they are able to increase the value of stock…not on the profitability of the products they sell. That is why there is such a disparity…and unruly stock speculation drove up the value of those who instill investor confidence the best…

      and boobies….
