"American business has added 4 million jobs in the last 24 months," Dimon said. "That's not government jobs, and I don't think government policy had anything to do with it. It should have been 8 million."

So what you're saying is that American business is wholly responsible for the failure to add the additional 4 million jobs?

Say what you want about the arrogant douche...

No, really, say what you want about him...it won't hurt his wittle feeling.

And what is the over/under on how long it takes the Freepers to modify that quote to blame the government for half the growth a leader business leader said it should have been?

It's true. Just because she's a CEO, Virginia Rometty wasn't allowed to join Augusta National. Is that fair? You Occupiers have stirred up so much hatred of CEOs the club can't afford the bad press that would come from letting this woman play a round of golf.

"American business has added 4 million jobs in the last 24 months," Dimon said. "That's not government jobs, and I don't think government policy had anything to do with it. It should have been 8 million."

Sooooo..... you're only doing half as much as you think you should be? That's not a very smart argument...

Dimon, who received an 11 percent raise last year to $23.1 million in total compensation, also saluted the American economy

Sure, he makes 462 times what the average American makes and gets double-digit raises at a time when most still aren't getting any (and having health benefits cut and their 401k matches frozen and...), but how dare you attack business leaders for being out of touch!

Businesses are in great shape. Consumers are in better shape

Yea, that's one of the problems, asswipe. Kind of like how I'd be a little pissed if I got in a car accident and the medics spent 99% of their time making the other guy 100% better but only stuck a band-aid on my lopped-off arm.

"We're four years after the crisis and haven't fixed the mortgage market. Everyone's scapegoating and finger pointing and ... totally misusing facts all the time for political purposes."

Oh no! You mean people are pointing at the bankers who gave out the loans and illegally robo-signed the documents and then got the bailouts.... wait, I forgot where I was going with this..

Oh, right: Fark off you miserable little coontstick. You and your sick farking ilk reaped the rewards of highly profitable and almost certainly illegal mortgage processes and knowingly dangerous money manipulation schemes, then you got a BONUS, taken at gunpoint from the taxpayers, as a reward for being the leading cause of the second worst economic collapse in U.S. history.

FARK. OFF.

In any other age you and your friends would have your heads on pikes for what you've done to this country and its people. Just be glad we're so much more civilized and patient and all we're demanding is that you spend the rest of your life rotting in a prison cell.

I keep hearing Voltaire's "The Headless Waltz" when I see one of these farkers play the victim card...

As above, so below, place your bets
Which way the head will roll
Made in your image, we are at least
As twisted and mean as thee
'Fore your eyes, what a curious sight
Your children have turned on you
And you say, you don't sleep well at night
Well, we'll take care of that for you

Belle Marie Antoinette
Love the pearls
They'll make a great tourniquet
Never did as you should and you claim
It was all for our very own good
'Twas a lie, a magnificent lie
Now, your subjects have turned on you
And you claim you had lots on your mind
Well, we'll take care of that for you

Get that damn thing off her neck
I'm the head of the board now I'm bored of her head
Sharpen up the blade, boys.
What are you waiting for?
Here's where we all get ahead!
Wipe that damn smile off your face
Or we'll lop it off clean with our new guillotine
Sharpen up the blade boys, what are you waiting for?
Here's where we all get ahead!

All my troubles, all my pain
Stems from this thing that you call a "brain"
Be my guest, sever me from the source of all my agony
What a shame, I've forgotten my name
Without the use of my brain and
My, bet I'll sleep well tonight
Without this head of mine

Get this damn thing off my neck
I'm the head of the board now I'm bored of my head
Sharpen up the blade, boys
What are you waiting for?
Here's where we all get ahead!
Wipe that damn smile off your face
Or we'll lop it off clean with our new guillotine
Sharpen up the blade, boys
Bells are now tolling, soon heads will be rolling

Please Sir, for me, Sir,
Won't you see if you see, Sir?
Oh dear, I dread
I seem to have lost my head
I think I left it about
It fell to the ground
And I kicked it around
Has anyone seen, no need to be mean,
My bloody, fat, ugly head?
Please Miss, for me, Sis,
Won't you see if you see, Sis
It's got black hair
And it's kickin' about in the square
I'm really not totally sure but
I think that it might have rolled into the sewer.
Has anyone seen, no need to be mean,
My bloody, fat, ugly head?

People angry with firms who received bailout funds, but not at those who gave them the bailout funds.

You can't explain that.

Those firms created the conditions necessitating the bailout.

Whew, that was easy.

Can't the power of Fark tweet of FB Chase and perhaps cause him to resign in shame for his comments?

That's not really true.

So you're ok with giving them hundreds of billions of dollars to back up their failed investments?

No, i disagreed with george bush when he implimented the bail out.

not that i didn't think bailing them out wasn't good, but i felt the bailout should have been the first step to shore them up as part of a plan to then properly dismantle them from "to big to fail" size to a more sustainable model. There should have been major criminal charges against all the involved parties, anyone who was a manager or VP at these banks and financial institutes who was not criminally liable should have been removed from their jobs and barred from doing any finance related jobs for 20 years minimum and major rules changes should have been made to reign in hedge funds and other "margin" institutes.

You know, if Mitt Romney was a rational, observant, thoughtful individual, he'd be facepalming so hard right now and shouting "NO! NO! SHUT UP! Don't say stupid crap like this until after the election!"

But you know he's probably reading the article and going "YES! YES! PREACH IT! Can we hire this guy to run my campaign?"

I should have preceded that with, "The people who are angry believe that..."

I don't particularly care at this point. It's done, and not worth getting angry about at this stage. But being pissed at the government for the bailout is like getting angry at the dad who's paying for the window that the kid chucked a baseball through with his last $50 because now he won't be able to buy the kid's dinner. Maybe it was the kid's fault, maybe it wasn't, but now the little snot is crying about not getting his baseball back.

Oh, yea, I keep forgetting that you can only be upset at one party or the other in that transaction, but not both....

Er... no, wait, what I mean is "your comment was really, really stupid and you should feel shame for having posting it."

Sorry - I should resign in shame.

I meant to say OR - Farkers should tweet OR Facebook Chase with the intent to create shame for their CEO, who should resign for his ludicrousness.

Jp Morgan didn't need or want any bailout money. They took it because Geithner and paulson told them to take it.

That is actually true.

What's also true is that I was laid off by Chase in 2010. That same year, Jamie Dimon made $16,000,000. I'm pretty sure Jamie could have gone donated my salary from his salary and he wouldn't have noticed it. That guy is why when BankOne and JPMorganChase merged, BankOne won the merger war for our corporate culture. It's a very different company than it was in 2004, and I'm not even talking about the closure of offices and the laying off of thousands. I mean the way the company treats its employees and customers has tanked. In the five years before I lost my job, I watched my benefits get cut over and over again (while Jamie Dimon got paid more and more money).

/Still unemployed, 2 years later.
