Insufferable and Incorrigible

He’s like just about every other psychopathic criminal I have met, except he is so much worse.

I’m talking, of course, about Jamie Dimon.

That the recipient of so much government largesse answered a question that way (i.e., “That’s why I’m richer than you.”) in public is really all you need to know about why we are where we are in terms of this whole ‘financial crisis’ thing.

If anyone belongs in prison, Dimon does.

And I see Matt Taibbi beat me to the punch on this one:

And the “That’s why I’m richer than you” line is a perfect example of how these guys think. Question: You say two plus two is six, but sir, isn’t it really four? Answer: No, because I have a huge cock. [Unzips.] [Raucous laughter.] That’s really the level these guys think at. If Dimon was reading this joke right now, he wouldn’t even be offended, he’d be flattered, that’s how fucking stupid these people are.

  1. Are you starting to see the fundamental flaw in our justice system? There’s a common thread that runs through our entire culture: that money buys legality and conflicts of interest are merely lapses of political ettiquette. The only way I can see to change that is to put a firewall between government and business similar to the separation of church and state; with real teeth. I think it would look something like this:
    28th Amendment
    “Corporations are not persons in any sense of the word and shall be granted only those rights and privileges that Congress deems necessary for the well-being of the People. Congress shall provide legislation defining the terms and conditions of corporate charters according to their purpose; which shall include, but are not limited to: 1, prohibitions against any corporation becoming so large its failure would pose a threat to national security or harm the general economy; 2, prohibitions against any form of interference in the affairs of government, education, and news media; and 3, provisions for civil and criminal penalties to be paid by corporate executives for violation of the terms of a corporate charter.”

    • I appreciate that you have put some thought into things and come up with something. You are perhaps not so much lacking in intelligence as you are lacking in knowledge. As bad as my constitutional amendment drafting might be, you should deal with the fact that you don’t know what you are doing at all.

      There might be some online information about drafting laws. You should try to find something like that. And you should also become familiar with basic corporation law. If you did that you might find yourself thinking about more relevant and worthwhile methods of addressing the issues you want addressed.
