Do you want cheese with that whine?

Wall Street fat cats whine that they won't be able to find anybody willing to work for $500,000 per year.

Really? Hey fat cats, if you can't find anybody willing to work for $500,000 per year as a Wall Street CEO, I'll do it. And so will my buddy down the hallway. And the Indian guy who lives upstairs from me. And the Mexican lady who lives downstairs from me would just love a job that paid $500,000 per year, and she couldn't do worse than the fat cat bankers did when they ran their banks and brokerages into the ground. Oh wait, we didn't go to the "right" schools (i.e., the same schools that you went to), so we don't qualify. Ooops! Elitist, anybody?!

  1. Ummm, yeah, come to think of it, that 500,000 is a few jobs and a few rental payments, isn't it?

    Why are we bailing these miserable failures out again?

    Depression huh?


  2. and the media enablers of this psychological disconnect

  3. But you gotta luv the reasoning "if we don't pay these people enough, they might leave." Yes, wouldn't that be terrible...

  4. How about a $500.000 fine for whining?
