    Regarding Dimon’s compensation:

    Sabathia: as far as I know, he is clean (drugs, steroids, etc.) and works for a private organization

    Larry Ellison: built his company and pays himself whatever he wants so who cares

    Robert Downey Jr.: hardly a model for our children, is overpaid, but makes billions for the movie industry legally

    Barack Obama: mass murderer, torturer, kidnapper, illegal spyer, and facilitator of the worst that American capitalism can conjure up. Grossly underpaid per victim! But he gets to fly around in Air Force One and can kill with impunity…who can put a price on THAT!

    Jamie Dimon: thief, liar and overall bloodsucker. Should breed with Lloyd Blankfein and create an uber-race of modern bankers. Paying him $20 million is like insisting the Cali Cartel receive only minimum wage. Dimon is a model for our times. $20 million? Pfft. $20 billion would not be too much for a man of his…um…character and public utility.

    Yeah, somehow people are pissed that Dimon “managed” a bank into activities criminal, sucked enough bailout money out of the taxpayers to create a “profitability” so great that the fines paid for the frauds, committed don’t really make an impression on the bank’s profits.
    Damn, the sheep are upset? Because the laws they have to live under don’t apply to the “Dimons” of the world? What a surprise.
    Shut up and pay the man. After all, his salary? “It’s just a rounding error.”

    The film, “Mitt,” did much to humanize Romney and since public woodiness was virtually his only flaw as a con artist that may mean he will be back again. Stranger things have happened, much stranger, and in these United States it can get even stranger than that.

    The Long Con

    Mitt Romney is a liar. … Romney’s lying, in fact, was so richly variegated that it can serve as a sort of grammar of mendacity.

    … If the 2012 GOP nominee lied louder than most …it’s just because he felt like he had more to prove to his core following. Lying is an initiation into the conservative elite. In this respect, as in so many others, it’s like multilayer marketing: the ones at the top reap the reward …Closing the sale, after all, is mainly a question of riding out the lie: showing that you have the skill and the stones to just brazen it out, and the savvy to ratchet up the stakes higher and higher.

    For years now, the story in the mainstream political press has been Romney’s difficulty in convincing conservatives, finally, that he is truly one of them. For these elites, his lying …is how he has pulled it off once and for all. And at the grassroots, his fluidity with their preferred fables helps them forget why they never trusted the guy in the first place.
