If you have "no place to go," come here!

In case you were wondering, the banksters really do hate you

Here. I'm skeered.

I don't think this is ironic. But the thought of the banksters taking their revenge on the useless eaters who purchased their fraudulent products by elbowing them out of their shit jobs at Wal-Mart and doing their own lawn-care is just too, too delicious.

I mean, seriously, who has a lawn any more? You can't grow food with a lawn. The real unterbussen have gardens!

NOTE Of course, if Peterson's "Let Them Eat Catfood" Commission works out, these guys will have plenty of fees coming in. So let's be optimistic!

UPDATE I should have given Yves credit for this. Interestingly, both Digby and OpenLeft link to the FT story (via Memeorandum). So Yves, who is a mistress master of aggregation, might be beginning to drive discussion. That's interesting.

...that the public show of hearings, lawsuits, and prosecutions are the only thing protecting them from a lynch mob, do they? Things are really ugly out there in Proletarian-land and it isMayday, after all. People who have nothing left to lose don't care much about due process.

and it's damn good. A tip of the hat to whomever wrote it.

(Wall Streeters do not actually think that teachers make $85K a year. That's just impossible.)

When Blankfein describes Goldman as "doing God's work" and "Fab" Tourre jokes about defrauding widows and orphans (http://dealbook.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/0...), then I can't help but think that these guys really are both sufficiently arrogant and sufficiently ill-informed to write something like this in perfect seriousness.

But I'm pretty confident that Wall Streeters know exactly how much non-elites make per year. That's why they chose Wall Street instead of teaching third grade.

However, whether they are evil enough to write something like this is not even in question. Of course they are. That's why the snarkage is so fantabulous.

Yves being feminine, I can't give her the honorific "Master of Aggregation."

"[master|mistress] of ..." and come up with something wonderful or horrible, as the case may be. And the nice thing about "master of" [mistress of] is that it connotes competence, which is a requirement.

That said, I'm perfectly willing to entertain a motion for a different title. Ideas?

The word "mistress" sounds pejorative to me but I looked around online and it is considered to be an entirely proper word to use in such a context.

Actor, actress, for example.

Allthough I do hope I can modulate well enough to become pejorative only intentionally!
