OK.
Not exactly.
An activist group that spun off from Occupy Wall Street has called on the largest Wall Street firms to donate their $91 billion bonus to their 10 million US victims:


"The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 both hit record highs on Thursday while the NASDAQ surged to its highest level in over 13 years.

"The year-end rally is expected to add a boost to the massive bonuses Wall Street is preparing to hand out this year.

"The largest Wall Street firms have reportedly set aside more than $91 billion for year-end bonuses.

"In response, an activist group called The Other 98% has launched a petition calling on employees of Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Bank of America to donate their bonuses to the 10 million Americans made homeless by the housing crisis."

The Other 98% Urges Wall Street to Donate $91 Billion in Bonuses to Victims of Financial Crisis | Democracy Now!

Keeping in mind how fraudulent subprime lending at the behest of many of these same Wall Street banks drove the control accounting fraud and inaccurate credit ratings that plundered Americans of more than a quarter of their net worth between June 2007, and November 2008, doesn't it seem only "fair" Wall Street gives a little back?

And exactly what is this activist group donating to the supposed "victims" you have randomly declared?

Their "fair share" of the reparations due the 10 million foreclosure "victims" of predatory loans with bait-and-switch interest rates. Which works out to exactly $0.00.

So in other words, they won't do jack shit (financially) to help somebody, they just expect others to do it.
Got a link to prove that 10 million were victims of "bait and switch" and not just victims of their own idiocy or ignorance?
Caveat emptor.

Most of the victims (meaning those who actually lost something) I've seen came to that condition by being so greedy they believed things to be true that sounded almost too good to be true. The "almost" part had too many syllables for their comprehension to deal with.

Why should those who didn't profit from subprime pay its victims?
Give me a credible source (in your mind) for the 10 million Americans who were made homeless by Wall Street banks.
