Arrogant MF'er is getting pwned

Feb 11, 2009 1:02 pm

You might come across a bit arrogant too when you have a bunch of idiotic congressman led by Barney Frank, who threw a bunch of money at you with no conditions on how to spend it and are now grilling you as to why you didn't spend it the way their lobbyists wanted you to spend it. I would love the chance to grill congress.

I am no BAC lover either, but I think congress grilling these CEO's is ridiculously ironic. It was hilarious when someone asked the CEO's how much new money they put into their own companies. Someone should ask what the Congress what stocks THEY bought this year, what new money they put into the market, or why they didn't lobby for their own pay cuts, or at least disclose whether or not they are asking their lobbyists to hold onto the money they would normally give these congressmen/women and invest it in new jobs in their companies.


 
I haven't heard of one instance of someone in congress spurning a lobbyist in favor of that company retaining at least one more job. Hypocrites...they (congress) should sit in front of their constituents and answer for their own personal accounting, after all, they are 100% subsidised by our tax dollars.

Yeah, I don't get it either.  I don't understand why someone, for once, doesn't stand up and ask these motherf*&^%ers where they get the balls to question anyone else, considering how they oversee the most insolvent, debt ridden, mismanaged, overbloated entity on the face of the earth, The United States Federal Government.

My favorite line was when Lewis was asked about the ML  bonuses and it went something like this:

 
 We have owned ML for 42 days now.  Things are now different.  We are now in control.
 
ouch!

Taking bonuses while the ship is going down is ridiculous. Pay for performance I agree with, paying for steering a company into the ground is not. Shareholders and executive management do not HAVE to get a long.

Lewis needs to wear contacts. His glasses make his eyes look huge and he also appears crosseyed

I don't care how they looked, too many things in this country are already a beauty contest.

I did think it was telling that when the group was asked who had put their own money on the table, only 3 of the 12 had bought shares in their respective organizations in the last few months.
