February 9th, 2016 http://www.wsj.com/articles/be Last Friday a crane collapsed in lower Manhattan, killing a man named David Wichs. The next day the papers told the story of his life: a Jewish immigrant from Czechoslovakia; a math whiz with a degree from Harvard; a thoughtful neighbor and husband; the nicest, most trustworthy person that I have known, according to his boss, Mark Gorton, of Tower Research Capital. Mr. Wichs was just 38 when he died. I never met Mr. Wichs, but reading about him reminded me of so many people I know in his industryprodigiously bright and slyly funny, reasonably wealthy...

Wall Street remains one of America’s crowning glories. To insinuate that the people who make it work are swindlers is no less a slur than to tag immigrants as criminals and moochers.

Yes, how could anyone dare besmirch the brave men who work tirelessly on Wall St. helping the little guys. They are American Heroes.

If it weren't for 0.1% of the population exploiting 99% of the population, we all would be working 20 hours a week and making six figures salaries, even unskilled labor. Skilled labor, particularly that requiring intelligence, would be making between $200,000 and $800,000 a year while working only 20 hours a week. The fact that we're not living like that is the cost of tolerating parasites who take the vast majority of wealth production while producing no wealth themselves. If that ain't class warfare, nothing is.

Once again, CIC demonstrates that conservatives are incapable of making an adult argument.

Sounds like CIC is upset because he can't come up with a witty retort. But seriously, we all know that CIC comes from a long line of inbreeding.

This is what CIC's family tree looks like.

Notice it has no branches.

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh, but what else do you expect from low class people? They want to create anger and fear.)

Bernie's victory speech was the same ole shit the Bezerkely hippies were spewing in 1970, only with a dessert of Global Warming hysteria tossed in.

Clearly, a fly in socialist amber. His glory days were being an ASSHOLE 50 years ago, and he just keeps reliving them like his own personal delusionary Groundhog Day.

Perhaps, but the behavior of Wall Street is much more brazen, government corruption and the revolving door much more obvious, and we live in the day of the internet, and not the Daily Planet, and so more folks know what is going on. And back in the '60's, momentum was on the side of improving upward mobility and standard of living.
