Merrill Lynch Mob

I just heard that a boss at Merrill Lynch spent over a million dollars to have his office re-done. That kind of greed just makes me so mad. We are in a recession. His company is asking the taxpayers for billion dollar bailouts.... he spent like $60,000 on a rug... a fucking rug... COME ON! How is nobody doing anything about this? People are living in poverty in this country and all over the world, and a company that is asking the middle and lower classes for money is spending like they are retarded.... excuse my use of the word... i generally don't use the word retarded, but that is what i think of Merrill Lynch for being so selfish.... and sadly, it's not just Merrill Lynch, all these companies that are going under are still being led by very rich and very selfish people. I am sick of it. This country s a mess. I hope Obama will bring us to a better place, but Bush and his administration raped this country and i hope that some day soon they will pay for it.

Worst part is it probably didn't even phase this guy.

I think it's true, that we can't really call ourselves civilized until all people in our society are taken care of.

Eh, not necessarily. A capitalist republic could totally do that too, it's just political.

And pfft... there's far worse things to be than a commie :p

again i agree... on both comments... it seems like just recently being a communist has been brought back as this horrible thing. i'm not a communist, but i really like a lot of things about socialism. it really freaks people out... i don't enjoy freaking people out the way i did when i was a teenager, but i seem to do it all the time anyway. oh well.

Yeah it's because uneducated people can't tell the difference between communism and fascism. Most socialist republics have been fascist... with a few exceptions, so people assume that they're the same thing.

In reality there's been all sorts of "socialism" even capitalist hybrids... socialism doesn't mean the death of capital or even loosing the American dream of living better than all our neighbors put together... It just means that the playing field is leveled and EVERYONE gets SOMETHING and then some people get everything, you know? It's just humanity, I doubt we'll ever not want everything for ourselves... but it's destructive and criminal really to be starving people as a result.

I just think that's an absolutely exorbitant amount of money to spend on nothing more meaningful than redoing an office...What was the rug made of that it was so expensive? Chinchillas?

Having said that, I've just spend a frightening amount of money on a new suit..But that's different ;)

It really is a fantastic suit. When I get it, I'll post some pics.

If you bought thermals, it must be really freakin' cold in Mass.!
