Or put them on his clothing so everyone knows.

Or we could just put one of these on his clothing so everyone knows what he really is:

Let's make it a witch hunt. Burn him instead.

Why isn't legal to lynch CEOS?

Because as part of the metamorphosis from chrysalis to CEO, jobs are created. Precious jobs that must be spun by hand from the gestating pupa.

Burn money.  That'll freak him out.  He is Jewish rich after all.

Say what you will about the Roman Empire, crucifixions are an excellent way to make people fall in line and respect the rule of law.  A few thousand bankers lining Wall Street on crosses would work wonders for the stability of the global economy.

Keep in mind that it has to been done regularly though.

A once in a century sweep of Wall Street is not effective.  Regular sweeps...  once a month or so...  are much more effective.

I believe that to be the international sign of the chocolate balloon knot.

Listen, I think he's got a good idea here.

We really should start lynching some of these mother farkers.

Maybe instead of rednecks dragging their victims behind pickup trucks we can drag a string of these banksters behind a Prius, or a Volt.

I think guillotines are the way to go. Maybe throw in a couple coconuts at first, to show that they work. Put them someplace where they can be seen on the way to and from work every day and let the message sink in.

It was a poor choice of words. I never meant to offend anyone by it

I just said something people would find offensive, I just never meant people to be offended by my offensive remarks, because being offensive isn't something that people generally get offended by, so how was I to know that there is a correlation with being offensive and people being offended, I mean, I know the words are almost identical but I thought that was just a coincidence.

I don't give a shiat about what I say.  I have mine, so STFU and get back to work.  Here are some words some plebes will maybe think I'm apologizing with.  Doesn't matter, I can do whatever I want anyway.

As a vegan, I feel it's wrong to harm any of natures creatures. Therefore I will be advocating for the pulling of Proxy Bankers, hand-woven from locally sourced corn husks and grape vines.

The imagery would be nice if that bull sculpture on Wall St was replaced with a brazen bull, and randomly placed rabid bears.

But... but... but I'm afraid of losing my middle class lifestyle and going to prison.  We need a lot of people before the mob mentality protects me from a sense of consequences from my own actions.

AIG executive wants you all to know he's sorry

No, he doesn't. If he wanted us to know he was sorry, he would have said he was sorry.

Sir, I like the cut of your jib.  Surely the tycoons would prefer a golden calf, but then, how would they learn?

Nothing quite like the "when I said you are all farking scum; I hope you die, die, die and burn in hell, I misspoke" apology.

I admit, I never looked to see if he really  is Jewish when I wrote the headline, I just needed a joke and I figured "what would be an out-there objection to burning crosses? AH! JEWS!" and went with that.

1980: CEO pay at the top 350 companies in the US averages 30 times the average workers' pay.

2012: CEO pay at the top 350 companies in the US averages 273 times the average worker's pay.

Between 1980 & 2012, inflation-adjusted average household income rose by 7.1%.

Between 1980 & 2013, CEO average income rose by 910%.

And this useless farkstain is the one who feels oppressed?

Lynching might not be a bad idea...

thornhill: Nothing quite like the "when I said you are all farking scum; I hope you die, die, die and burn in hell, I misspoke" apology.


exactly.  It's calling it something it isn't.  Usually when somebody apologizes and says they misspoke, it's indicative of them being caught being outright racist or just a general sack of shiat and being called on it.  Misspoke is using a word you didn't understand the definition of or did and using it in the wrong place or something like that.  NOT a lengthy quote you give to reporter.  Sorry, you didn't just accidentally blurt that out instead of "The witch hunt agains CEOs is relatively unfounded.  A sinking ship was rescued, we're doing everything in our power to pay the money back and the golden parachutes that were part of prior legal obligations are unfortunate timing." he did not mean to say that and misspoke and say what he said.

bs.

Or we could just bring back Glass Steagle.

Actually, we might have to lynch a few bankers first.

That non-apology was terrible.  If only there was something very terrible I could compare it too.

My great grandfather burnt crosses on the Catholics lawn because they didn't have any black people or jews. Srsly.

That's a lot bigger project. A cross is just two boards of different lengths. That would take some measuring and setup time.
