It is too predictable that someone would want to hold someone else responsible for their mistakes. I believe a company should give incentives to
their employees. I do not believe that the people who could not even have the common sense to not purchase something they obviously cannot afford are
capable of telling a bank how to operate. When you show me the bank that put a gun to your head and made you make a poor decision I will believe
Unless someone can acknowledge the basic things I've been saying all along, please to not expect me to make a response. Acknowledge what I am saying
and I will gladly consider your opinions.
Wow, I asked a question, and you could not answer? I guess that in itself is an answer.
Let me ask you once more, maybe that will help you understand the question.
What is your idea of someone incapable of managing their money? Give me some examples, and I will let you know if I fit into that category.
Otherwise you are just making assumptions.
On top of, how is my opinion that banks who need a bailout should NOT be giving out big bonuses, must therefore equal myself and others not being able
to manage their money?
And I am going to add one, do you, or someone you know, have employment with banks? Is that why you think that banks, who need bailouts for bad
decisions, deserve to be giving out bonuses?
Is anyone aware (not christian myself), but most of the USA seems to be, in Luke 16:11, "So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly
wealth, who will trust you with true riches?" That, is the banking system right now.
Also, Exodus 22:25 “If you lend money to any of my people with you who is poor, you shall not be like a moneylender to him, and you shall not exact
interest from him.
And then Deuteronomy 24:10-13 “When you make your neighbor a loan of any sort, you shall not go into his house to collect his pledge. You shall
stand outside, and the man to whom you make the loan shall bring the pledge out to you. And if he is a poor man, you shall not sleep in his pledge.
You shall restore to him the pledge as the sun sets, that he may sleep in his cloak and bless you. And it shall be righteousness for you before the
Lord your God.
So, our Christian "nation", is every single day sinning, because these banks are taking away people's homes and charging horrendous interest
I wonder, how many Christians are even aware of this?
NO, banks who have taken bailouts should NOT give out bonuses at this time. If you were running a business, and were loosing money, you would not be
giving bonuses to your employees, unless you have a bank getting bailouts.
