    "In spite of a dismal year on Wall Street, the report by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said bonuses paid at nine bailed-out banks exceeded some of the banks' annual profits."

    Incredible. What I don't understand is, how do you give these people all this taxpayer money, and then set down the terms? Are the people responsible for the oversight asleep at the wheel? Sheesh :confused:
  2. 1) 0-3-0-0. What did you expect?
    2) Politicians from New York can't oppose the industry if they ever expect to be re-elected again.
    3) There isn't enough "outrage" to do anything about "it" yet. :mad:
  3. Geez, the government is having a heck year as well as wall street:

    Who takes credit for leaving Bernie Madack unattended for years. Do we need to give this guy a bonus?

    What about the CRA folks? Do you all needs some pay raises to come up with more ideas how to bring banks to their knees in a few short years?

    Massive deficits in Washington. PAYGO, not working?? Need more money to get the numbers to work?

    Just a few ideas.
  4. "bonus paid exceeded annual profit"

    translation : FUCK YOU shareholders.

    So much for always putting the shareholder first, all is justified theory, championed by Wall Street. Hypocrites.
  5. Wow. Such clarity. How do you do it?
