Holy shit these people are douchebags.

Indeed.

“I wasn’t going to be bribed off my story, but I understood their panic. Here, after all, was a group that included many of the executives whose firms had collectively wrecked the global economy in 2008 and 2009. And they were laughing off the entire disaster in private, as if it were a long-forgotten lark. (Or worse, sing about it — one of the last skits of the night was a self-congratulatory parody of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen,” called “Bailout King.”) These were activities that amounted to a gigantic middle finger to Main Street and that, if made public, could end careers and damage very public reputations.”

“the 1 percent is being picked on for political reasons”

I remember when the 1% got their hero Dumbya into office. I immediately, as a working man, felt like I was being not just picked on but assaulted. I have watched as my contribution to the company has been marginalized and ignored, my compensation reduced by stealth, and basically my incentive shot all to hell because it seems like LAZY FREELOADERS in the CEO office presume themselves guaranteed a bonus, year after year, regardless of whether they succeed as CEO in making the company profitable. I also am pretty fed up with my little tiny bonus being considered disposable … I see the CEO still plans on giving himself a giant hand-job, though.

So, what the 1% needs to have, um … CARVED in their EYEBALLS is that we’ve been taking the haircut for their mistakes, we’ve been paying the price for their failures, and frankly I am done. When the question of what to do with the 1% comes up (and it will) and we as a society have to take hold of this little root of aristocracy that has tried to spring up and cut it down and burn it to the fucking core of the earth to prevent it from coming back, I’m all for consigning them to ditch-digging for the rest of their quite useless and non-contributing lives.

I can only begin to estimate how much money these incompetent fucking morons have cost me over the last say 13 years of economic malaise. Since the early 2000’s I’ve felt like I’m practically on the run, trying to keep ahead of the huge job losses and attacks on social infrastructure carried out by the likes of Wilbur Ross. So yes, you ARE under attack. It’s called fighting back, motherfucker. Yes, I do want to FIGHT with the 1% . Yes, I want to HURT them. You bet your ASS I do. I want some kind of payback for the horrible disaster they’ve mislead us into.

re: #1 jaunte

Indeed.

They are rightly afraid that righteous justice will catch up with them, and it will be wrathful as all fuck from the chase, and frustrated with the stupidity of their dodging and weaving, and will finally rip their fucking faces off it is so tired of listening to their bullshit excuses.

It’s a mini-French-Revolution, I think. Our aristocracy is so totally pampered and out of touch and full of their own horseshit — it will take a huge social upheaval to put these people back where they belong.

These are the people the GOP expects us to worship like Gods; they even call them “creators”, as in “job creators.”

One thing that stuck out in particular for this piece is that even though the overriding majority of members of this “fraternity” are Republicans, including some hardcore Randians, it appears that there were at least a couple who self-identify as Democrats or independents - which tells me that these people are above the political spectrum, as they can buy pretty much anyone who they want to, as well as putting themselves in charge of the nation’s financial oversight.

That being said, the guest list, is 90+% male and from looking up profiles of each member, almost exclusively white. There doesn’t appear to be any overriding religious affiliation either, which might be disappointing to the anti-Semites on the far right. It literally is a group of “haves” who look down on everyone who is a “have-not”.
