    But--But--Obama BELIEVES that business should not make a profit. They must help the common man live happily and without sufffering in a Utopic society!!


    Apparently, someone need to put Obama through economics 101. Business exist to make a profit. Without profit, a business cannot survive. When a business fails--people are put out of work. When too many business fails, unemployment rises. Banks work on a similiar principle. When banks loan too much money, they can also fail.


    Homework problem for President Obama.
    How can a bank extend more credit if extending too much credit can cause a bank to fail??

    People exist for their own purpose and not for the purpose of others such as creating jobs. To tell a business that you must invest and create jobs for the sake of the "common good" is just as silly as telling workers that they must work harder for the "common good" of making our businesses competitive in the world so they must work harder for that purpose. An employee and an employer both work for their own benefit and to expect anything else will create the same human misery that existed in slavery.

    Seriously, when I hear Obama speak...I can barely contain my birdy finger from being flipped at his direction.

    The bankers knew what was required of them today. The same thing happened in March. The same result will happen now. Bankers don't tell the President to shut up. Banker's lawyers tell the President to shut up. Obama's plan was to shame a banker. He said so. What a tool.

    Has Obama talked with his TresSec?

    Ya know, maybe, just maybe, complying with those stupid fucking stress test is what keeping banks from lending?

    I wish one would use those exact words, too. What great PR that would be for the banking industry.

    After the banks got their sorry asses bailed out by the government, I doubt they are going to say anything but "thank you, sir, may I have another?".
