What unemployment? Wall Street pay expected to climb to $144 billion


www.rawstory.com

Just a day after the National Association of Business Economists lowered its forecast for US economic growth across the entire economy, the nation's leading business newspaper reveals that traders on Wall Street are still riding high.

While the US unemployment rate remains stuck at 9.6 percent, pay on Wall Street is likely to rise another 4 percent.

Gotta love it.

Most of these racketeers should be spending life sentences behind bars for the endless scams they have pulled on the 'little people', and instead, not only do they continue to get away with it (largely because they control the lawmakers / gov), but they continue to keep making more and more off their scams, and literally thumb their nose at the rest of the populace.

I wonder if any part of that new 'raise' they are getting will be in the form of more tax-payer-funded bail-outs, courtesy of their puppets in the gov?

Unreal...

It just goes to show the corruption in DC and where their influence lies. Our economy has been effectively hijacked, as was our monetary system back in 1913 with the passing of the Federal Reserve Act of that year. The American people are just the pawns that need to be subdued so that the elites can do their thing... at our expense.

But every conservative will tell you that it's the best thing EVER!

And, that we should cut taxes for these people! And that these guys are our saviors, that if we let these guys do whatever they want then they will make more jobs for everyone.

How has that worked?

Indeed. I keep seeing more and more articles springing up about the gap between the rich and the poor growing at a pace never seen before. The masses keep getting poorer and poorer while the top tier of earners income continues to sky-rocket beyond belief. Coincidence? I think not.

Sad part is, most of these greed-mongers have already accumulated more wealth than they could spend in 10 lifetimes, but it's never enough for them.

Well when I start starving and my family does too, then I am taking Aerosmith's Song "Eat the Rich" Very literally. Those fat Pigs have plenty of meat on their bones to feed my family!!!!!
The only way things will change is if we start a war against them. Remember our side has a lot more people than thier side. It worked for France didn't it? And England Now it is our turn!!!! We need to show these jerks we mean business!!!! Besides a lot of hungary angry people have more motivation.

144 is an interesting number
It is the twelth division of the Fibonachi series of number 12 X 12
1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21-34-55-89-144.
This numerical relationship is found in nature from how Sunflower seeds form to Spiralling galaxies ha ha
The private banks steal our money - Presidents are thier puppets - Eugenisists have the Final Solution - Our food has become poison and thought retardent through design - Their Medicines slow kill - Most of our work is for The Man - We are enslaved by design
Fibonachi had it right but did not see that it applys to Our so called masters that are spiralling OUT OF CONTROL

Maybe I should just go get a degree in Business Economics, and join Wall Street. I mean, if you can't beat them, join them, right?



Peace be with you.

And this is KEY for all to be very aware of---Our gov is ENTIRELY owned and controlled by corporate interests, which have NO ONE'S best interests in mind, save for their own. And they will stop at nothing to continue those interests, at the expense of all others. People need to observe the control structure and shine the light of observation brightly on the key players, and let them know we are watching them very, very closely.

A star and flag.

A lot of good this did. Obama Signs Wall Street Reform Into Law We must come to the conclusion that whatever comes out of Obamas' mouth, he means the exact opposite.

I can say that I'm happy to see someone is benefitting from our nations' crisis.

And the progressives say the same about Obama - He is the best thing ever despite the fact Obama is in Wall Street's pocket. He is FOR screwing the average American out of their wealth.... and giving it to the very healthy. Doncha love his brand of "Socialism"

First the money supply was doubled from $831 billion in 2008 to $1663 billion in 2009. WHO do you think is going to actually PAY for all that money??? The poor that is who as I explain here. (I really do not care if it was Bush or Obama responsible, it is still them against the little guy)

Second Obama's mortgage plan is specifically designed to push homeowners in financial difficulty who want to refinance into foreclosure. That is what the AIG bailout, and the Obama mortgage plan is really all about. If the bank can force you into foreclose the US government pays the bank AIG bailout money AND the bank gets the house too. The AIG CDS contracts are a side bet and do not pay off the mortgage for you. Your mortgage could have multiple CDS contracts so the banks do not want you to keep your home.

I just went through an Obama mortgage plan caused default. After 14 months of runaround with the bank the told me I did not qualify and was in default. It cost me $19,000 to get out of the foreclosure. $5364.52 was for attorneys fees. I even had to pay the banks attorney who then spent six months refusing to give my attorney a firm amount so we could pay the arrears caused by Obama's modification plan. Believe me the banks will do everything in their power to make sure they can foreclose and Obama mortgage plan is nothing but a baited trap for trusting families. GRRRrrrr

And then there is the health care scam
The revolving door spins faster on healthcare reform


In other words, implementation of the massive healthcare bill just enacted by the Congress will be overseen by a former high-level executive of the nation's largest private health insurer. As Marcy Wheeler writes: "It’s a nice trick: send your VP to write a law mandating that the middle class buy #ty products like yours, then watch that VP move into the executive branch to 'oversee' the implementation of the law." Indeed, Fowler played a crucial role in shaping the healthcare bill to ensure there was no public option and to compel every single American to purchase the products of the private healthcare industry (including those of her former employer). As Politico put it last year: "If you drew an organizational chart of major players in the Senate healthcare negotiations, Fowler would be the chief operating officer." It was Fowler who was literally writing the healthcare bills for Baucus which, at least at the time, progressives found so objectionable.

Fowler is the very embodiment of the sleazy Revolving Door and lobbyist-dominated politics which candidate Barack Obama endlessly vowed to subvert.


It is time for the Left and the Right to see the real enemy - WALL STREET -and stop fighting eachother!

Thank GOODNESS someone gets this!

Day after day, month after month, year after year, administration after administration, I see folks STILL doing the same darn thing---Bipartisan bickering, insults, finger pointing, ect., etc....

And what they are not focusing on is the ROOT of the problem! BOTH 'sides' are selected and hand-picked by CORPORATIONS!

NONE of these individuals is going to do ANYTHING different, because they are BOUGHT AND PAID FOR, before they are even CONSIDERED to get into the highest positions of power!

Look further up the ladder than the talking head puppets people---They are only window dressing. Their MASTERS are the ones you want to shine the spotlight on. If this system is to change at all, it isn't going to have ANYTHING to do with which 'party' or 'candidate' is involved---It is going to have to start with removing those who have RIGGED the entire system for their own vested interests, at the expense of us all!

A conservative would tell you it's your fault for purchasing a house you could not afford. That your bank did nothing wrong and it was all your fault and you should take responsibility for your own finances and not rely on the government to fix things for you.

well if you people know anything about wall street its this..........................

the majority is multinational corporations and they are multinational corporations for a reason to their spread their risk out..........................

now if the majority of americans spread their risk out they would be riding high to......................

i am getting tired of all the hate for the rich and corporations its getting endlessly tiring..................

simple fact those people are doing everything right and you are doing everything wrong...................

the majority of people will just sit back whine and moan and complain about their lives and what do those people do they go out and they do everything in their powers to get to where they want to be...............

you people expect the government rob peter and pay paul and make someone else suffer for your own short commings...........................in a word pathetic

simple fact someone rich can give every single one of you a million bucks and within a few days the week at the most you will be right back to where you are............................theres alot more to than just having money people its the knowledge and will and the desire to stay that way..agian qualities that the majority of americans clearly lack.................... peace
