Wall Street's five biggest banks had a banner year in 2010, racking up their second-highest revenues on record, and to celebrate they put aside some $90 billion for year-end bonuses. But an informal poll suggests that more than half of the people receiving those bonuses feel they aren't getting enough.
Vanity Fair's Foster Kamer went to Wall Street and carried out an informal poll asking bank employees how they felt about their bonuses. He found that, of the 98 people surveyed, 56 percent said their bonuses were "not enough."
Kamer notes that the $90 billion set aside for bonuses amounts to more than the economic value of 13 countries.

It sounds as if these individuals could use a bonus from We the People. Of course said bonus would never be given in worthless paper. Copper jacketed lead sounds like precisely the bonus that is deserved.edit on 21-12-2010 by bozzchem because: (no reason given)

Perhaps it would be better to pool your cash and hire Blackwater/Xe to go after the bankers? I'm sure if you told them they can keep the 90 billion the job would get done nice and quick.

Let them go forth in to their 5 star bunkers in 2012 and as each one tries to exit those bunkers we can do one of two things 1. shoot them 2. tell them how it's going to be from now on...they work for us!
Five of the respondents said they received bonuses of more than $250,000; none of them were women.
