There are now 6 dead bankers, and I am utterly and completely shocked that some people on ATS are actually cheering these mens' deaths.

It all comes down to "who cares."
Who cares what someone has.
I don't care that many here on ATS are younger and wealthier than myself.
I applaud that!
I spent most of my adult life in the military. I didn't "bank" much. At all.
But through the training and education and my own motivation, I'm in a civilian position that does pay well.
Should I now be punished because I worked my ass off to get where I am?
Reasonable people will say, "Of course not!".
But when the torches and pitchforks come calling, they aren't going to be looking at individual achievement.
They'll be looking for anyone "who has more".edit on 17-2-2014 by beezzer because: k

Why not fast food workers? They give the nation crap food...
Why not clothing stores? God knows this takes advantage of chinese people.
And while we are at it why not have hatred for every single orange grove owner and worker... they take advantage of mexicans and pay low wages.
Oh, and lets not forget the auto manufacturers and workers who steadily work toward destroying the envirornment, should we hate them and kill them off?
My God if we don't approve of a particular field, we should not partake in that field. I am against alcohol, so I don't do anything to support those businesses who supply alcohol and make alcohol. But guess what, I don't hate anyone for their views on it, I simply don't share the same views therefore my hard-earned money doesn't support it.
I am not ready to kill everyone involved in the alcohol industry, thats insanity.

Tell your knees and hip joints that at 61 and you just lost half of your retirement. Most of the people I know, the only retirement plan offered in the 80's and 90's at most businesses was 401k's. Snake Oil sales.
My husband's International Trade Union Local 238 was one of the exceptions. We did not lose any of our retirement in the crash of 08.
