We are Wall Street. It's our job to make money. Whether it's a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn't matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. I didn't hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000 and everyone's 401k doubled every 3 years. .. Well now the market crapped out, & even though it has come back somewhat, the government and the average Joes are still looking for a scapegoat... Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you're only going to hurt yourselves. What's going to happen when we can't find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We're going to take yours. We get up at 5am & work till 10pm or later. We're used to not getting up to pee when we have a position. We don't take an hour or more for a lunch break. We don't demand a union. We don't retire at 50 with a pension. We eat what we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plates, we'll eat that. For years teachers and other unionized labor have had us fooled. We were too busy working to notice. Do you really think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping? We're going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4 months off a year and whine just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid for building the youth of America. Say goodbye to your overtime and double time and a half... So now that we're going to be making $85k a year without upside, Joe Mainstreet is going to have his revenge, right? Wrong!... No more free rides on our backs. We're going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a garden hose in our driveways. Our money was your money. You spent it. When our money dries up, so does yours.... The Obama administration and the Democratic National Committee might get their way and knock us off the top of the pyramid, but it's really going to hurt like hell for them when our fat a**es land directly on the middle class of America and knock them to the bottom. We aren't dinosaurs. We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive. The question is, now that Obama & his administration are making Joe Mainstreet our food supply…will he? and will they?"Ha, ha, ha Fat Cat Banker who wrote this, the joke is on you. Because while you were working from 5am till 10pm, we were enjoying time with out family and friends, eating dinner, walking in the park. And while you were giving yourself a kidney infection by not getting up to pee when you need to (um, really? you're proud of that?) we were going to the bathroom whenever we needed to. And guess what? While you were living the "dream" of being a workaholic, we were taking vacations, reading fiction, and even taking the occasional nap. Not only that, we were also building up careers that you think you can do- like teaching in our schools- but you can't because those careers demand something you don't have and don't even seem to realize you don't have: an ability to connect to other human beings. All the work ethic in the world don't mean jack to a kid if you can't make a joke or share some common experience with them. So as you threaten us with taking over our jobs and our lives, we are kicking back and reading the newspaper with our significant other or going to our kids' soccer games or having brunch with friends. Think you're really that much smarter than us? Think you have it all figured out? Think your brains are actually bigger than dinosaurs' brains? Think again.
