Licenses to steal are only issued to the most privileged and erudite.
Of course, it's not called stealing. Such coarse language is reserved for peasants. No, this form of taking money is called something like "credit default swaps" or "collateralized debt obligations" or "derivatives trading".
The peasants lot in life is to get stuck with the bill when the CDS or CDOs or derivatives go bad. :(
Hey, but you know . . "Bonuses must be paid! There's a contract that says so!"
And we all know who is writing and approving those executive compensation contracts! It's the inner circle of business buddies: The Compensation Committee!
"You sit on my committee and I'll sit on your's, okay? No peasants allowed. Peasants think differently, like 'Hey, why should he/she get a bonus when the company is tanking? What's up with that? Nooooo . . '"
Maybe it's time to rip up a social contract or two and burn down the palace? Maybe social contracts - like unquestioned deference to authority - are for schmucks. I think that's what is emerging. The tea party movement was just the tinkle of china, a few right wing whackadoodles.
The thunder will be an angry middle class. Nothing like feeling a bit of pain to get someone to move. Nothing like seeing the pain isn't being shared to get a movement going.
I can't wait for some politico to say the equivalent of "Let them eat cake!" It's getting close to that. Really close.
"We're the rich! We're your friends! You NEED us! We've got the money!"
Ya. No 7/10 of 1 percent tax for you. No sir.
That would cut into your cake budget. :P
Look around, things really aren't that bad.
A more interesting angle would be that she shops with food stamps, lives rent free in project housing, has been on welfare for 7 years, this is the third child we've all paid for, could have driven her caddy but it's in the shop, and the stop at Safeway was on the way home from her dealer's crib, the only reason she "forgot" was she was too blasted and actually thought she was home.
