The Whiny Side of Greed

“Greed is Good,” and apparently greed is also a whiny little bitch. Due to a slump in revenue for some of Wall Street’s investment banking firms bonus checks are down this year, and these poor bankers have to suffer. In a recent interview with some of these poor souls they were quoted as saying “I feel stuck,” Schiff said. “The New York that I wanted to have is still just beyond my reach.” This poor guy is only going to bring home around $350,000 this year, I mean THE HORROR, THE HORROR! Wait, what? Are you Fn’ kidding me? This guy has either been living under a rock for the past 4 years or has the biggest set of cojones ever. This guy is in the top 1% of earners. He makes enough for several families to live off of.

Remember how the republicans always talk about leaving within your means. How it was wrong for all of the middle class people to want to live in a nice home and how they should have known they couldn’t afford it. Well where are those same republicans now? Cause I guarantee they won’t have squat to say about this. If it’s the 99% fault if they buy a house they can’t afford well I think it’s the 1% fault if they buy that second or third house they apparently can’t afford either.

Here are some other quotes from these world class A-Holes. “I’m not Zen at all, and when I’m freaking out about the situation,” “People who don’t have money don’t understand the stress,” “It’s a disaster,” “I can’t imagine what I’m going to do.” Its mind boggling how anyone who makes this type of money could say these kinds of things. If you can’t figure out how to survive off of $350k a year there is something seriously wrong with you. I really can’t believe anyone would trust you with their money if you obviously have no money management skill when it comes to your own finances.

If there is one bright side to this story it is that even thought these are some of the luckiest people in the entire world, there still not happy. I guess it’s possible that money can’t buy happiness.
