The ‘bammer made $5 million last year. Where does he draw the line? And does it include athletes, rappers and movie stars? Why does he say such stupid stuff? Oh, because no one will ask him these questions...

Barry, you’re ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!

So, effective immediately, we stop paying you.

Time to trade the White House for the Projects, Gourmet Meals for Food Stamps, and the local bus for Air Force One.

My point as well. As a lawyer, he should understand the term "arbitrary". What part of "about enough" does he not consider arbitrary?

I personally the we've been taxed about enough and the that the federal government has been getting about enough tax dollars from tax payers. Further, I think the 49% of the country who pay no federal income taxes have been skating about enough.

Don Corleone: When – when did I ever refuse an accommodation? All of you know me here. When did I ever refuse, except one time? And why? Because I believe this drug business is gonna destroy us in the years to come. I mean, it’s not like gambling or liquor, even women, which is something that most people want nowadays and it’s forbidden to them – by the church. Even the police departments have helped us in the past with gambling and other things. They’re gonna refuse to help us when it comes to narcotics. And I believe that then, and I believe that now.
Don Barzini: Times have changed. It’s not like the old days when we could do anything we want. A refusal is not the act of a friend. Don Corleone had all the judges and the politicians in New York, and he must share them. … He must let us draw the water from the well. Certainly, he can present a bill for such services. After all, we are not Communists.

At what point does he, Obama, have enough power?

Frankly, there have been enough wake-up-calls. It’s time to impeach him and put him in jail.

BUahahahahahahaha!

I think at this point, pretend president Obama, YOU have made enough money!

Greedy Wall street? Nah!

GREEDY GOVERNMENT.................YAHHHHHHH!

Of Course Goldman is right. They did NOT cause the mortgage crisis. It was caused by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the FHA, Bawney Fwanks office ( Bawney is not running again,,get it?)
This attack on GS is a riot. The politicians are trying to divert public attention from where the real blame lies. I mean think about it. Fannie and Freddie did not even ask for Income Tax returns on the mortgage applicants for sub prime mortgages, which would have proven that the loans were not serviceable by those taking them out. People got to understand how the secondary mortgage market works.

Fannie and Freddie were calling the shots behind the scenes with the banks . Goldman Sachs just found a way to secure the high risk sub prime mortgages against default through insurance and default credit swaps.They filled a need. Now the Obama feds are blaming Goldman Sachs, who has BTW agreed to be the fall guy as requested by Obama? Its all dashed and stashed. WHAT A SIDE SHOW!!!! And why do you think that the regulators at SEC were playing porn 8 hours a day? Smile! The fix was in. The politicians wouldn’t let the regulators anywhere NEAR the problem. ( Imagine a regulator saying” Where in this mortgage documentation is the ortgagors tax return? I mean think about THAT. The regulators didn’t even get to ask that simple question. they were told to lay off or elese. This was political correctness at its worst, rather than the laws being enforced!

Linkage between Congress, Fannie Freddie, FHA got most of the dirty work done. Now the government has staged a fall guy investigation into Goldman Sachs, nothing more than a political show trial,, and will slap their wrists and meanwhile the real bandits get to walk? And then the whole thing is used to introduce arcane , draconian controls on WALL STEET and private investors , taxed to pay for the burgeoning supervisory federal bureaucracy to come?

Obama and his czars should be frog marched out of the White House and down into the Potomac, at exatly the same time that every conservative in Washington has a dump and toggles the toilet handle. I can’t believe that people cannot see through this fiasco!!!!!

AMERICA! FLEECED YET AGAIN!

Yes and Warren Buffet Knows exactly what is up. The government intends to continue to redistribute wealth by continuing to
advocate sub prime morthgage lending through fannie freddie. The feds are just tying loose ends up on their own boondoggle. Warren gets it. DO YOU?

Dear Pres__ent Obama:

I think the $5.5 million you made last year is way too much. I think you should give $5.2 million of that to the Treasury of the United States.

His problem and ours is that he thinks his personal opinion needs to be made law.

After November his power will be reduced significantly.

Obama to the US middle class: “ You have so much more to be redistributed yet”.

The middle class has already lost so much with no mechanism for reclaiming those losses and govt. shutting doors every day.

The excerpt from CHSmith at http://www.oftwominds.com/blogapr10/Tea-Party04-10.html

“Implicit in the Tea Party movement’s anger is an awareness that 80% of the nation’s households own virtually no assets. Yes, there is $1 trillion left in home equity spread among 50 million households ( Housing and the Collapse of Upward Mobility April 16, 2010), but it can no longer be tapped. There are a few trillion in IRAs and 401K retirement funds, but the vast majority of these funds hold less than $10,000. Those with larger accounts lost 40% of their value in the 2008-09 timeframe and have not recovered their previous value, despite the tremendous rally in stocks. “

That is correct. He did get close to $1 million from Goldman, and he WON’T return it.

Of course this ‘person’ is a hypocrite.

Let’s reduce Obama’s salary to $25,000 dollars a year. Because, really, how much does he need? He gets room, board, staff, and travel for free. Also, cancel his income from his books, because they’ve given him enough already.
