    “Everyone is afraid of retaliation and retribution. We recently had an event with a hundred small bankers here, and 85 percent of them said they can’t challenge the regulation because of the potential retribution. That’s a terrible thing. Okay? This is not the Soviet Union. This is the United States of America. That’s what I remember. Guess what,” he says, almost shouting now. “It’s a free. Fucking. Country.” -- Jamie Dimon

    122 Minutes With Jamie Dimon -- New York Magazine

    This is becoming the USSA under the heavy hand of the Progs and their time is up in November.

    Obama pretended to be a fiscal conservative and political moderate and he's been the most radical anti-American President since FDR and Wilson.

    Like Adelson and Wynn, Dimon can't wait to get rid of the anchor on the economy that's sitting in the White House

    1. Laudatory though the attempt is, the desire of the Liberal state to exorcise greed, poverty and unhappiness, the cure is worse than the disease: the radical view that it is the responsibility to protect anyone who may claim to be powerless. The consequence, usual with big government is that the attempt is neither restrained, nor moderated.

    a. To be accused by the bureaucrats of the EPA, OSHA, the Equal Opportunity Commission, FDA, Consumer Protection Board, etc., is to be ineluctably found guilty. This is because the organization in question’s first and only responsibility is to grow…and grow.

    b. In contrast with the free market, it is not the people, but, rather, the government which decides failures and successes.

    Based on that interview, is there a possibility that Mr Dimon is slowly but inexorably coming to the conclusion that his idol is not what everyone perceived him to be, a Godsend for America, but instead the Communist wolf in sheep's clothing here to ravage both the flocks and their keepers.
    Be interesting to take note of Mr Dimon's donations during or after this ruckus is over to see whether he had his illusions shattered. The last patriotic Democrat was LBJ. Every so called Democrat that has followed him since has kept a copy of the Communist Manifesto by their bedside. Obama just doesn't simply read it at night, he lives it 24/7.

    The threats and Intimidation certain Government Agencies use is a not often discussed buy troubling trend. It's not anything new either, Been going on a long time.

    If this was a free country, the American taxpayer would not have been forced to bail Dimon's asshole buddies out.

    If this was a free, capitalist country, they would have been allowed to fail. It isn't capitalism if you aren't allowed to fail. The big boys have not been alowed to fail for decades now, so each successive failure is more spectacular. Not allowing them to fail has encouraged them to take even bigger risks with even bigger downsides. They know the American taxpayer will foot the bill for their fuckups.

    The next one? We will be talking about banks that are Too Big To Save. And then we are well and truly fucked. Then we will be lynching bankers from lamp posts.

    Dimon fails. Miserably. He knows damn well, as does everyone else, there are criminals on Wall Street who are stealing money from everyone. And if this was a just country, those criminals would be in prison.

    When you don't weed your yard, the weeds get bigger and more numerous. And now the weeds on Wall Street are manipulating the very DNA of our global economic system, fucking over everyone to make a few extra bucks.

    Dimon can fuck off and die.

    I don't look forward to the next crash, but I do look forward to seeing his bloated corpse at the end of a rope.

    If the fucking bankers think they are powerless I wonder what they would be happy with? Forgive me if I do not shed a for their problems.
