U.S Teachers Get $442 Million Pay Raise 


Taxpayer Bailed Out Goldman Sachs employees got an $18 BILLION DOLLAR BONUS!!!!!!

There are about 40,000 GS employees......there are about 4,000,000 teachers........

And we arrest a few local politicians for taking too much taxpayer money?

Then what should we charge Goldman employees with?

Remember when Buffett was Buffett and went into Solomon Brothers to clean house.....and at the time he wanted to control the renegade behavior and pay....

and at the same time he applauded  teachers and supported higher pay.....

What happened........

Not a word about the bonuses paid directly by taxpayers.......

yet we put others in jail for behavior that doesn't even compare?

Absolute power corrupts absolutely......and unlimited credit is absolute power......

What are you talking about?

Warren Buffett went into Solomon Brothers to clean house, not the US government. He's a businessman, not a politician- unlike alstry.

WTF does Buffett have to do with anything you're saying except to draw attention to your ranting? 

In the case you're talking about with the local politicians... they actually helped to bankrupt a small town in California and take a huge chunk of their money. It's easier (than the larger city governments) but not easy to hold such people accountable. It may even be the case that the people who were fleeced never get that money back. The people in question, the town manager, the mayor and their cohorts, paid themselves outrageous salaries, far above and beyond any comparable local government. It's a case of corruption on the local scale that hurts a small number of people inordinately, and they're nailing the guys the best they can. The jurisdictions are totally different. The comparisons and their differences are totally lost on you, unfortunately.

"yet we put others in jail for behavior that doesn't even compare?"

Who is this "we" you keep mentioning? I don't see you do anything at all, except piss and rant in the wind. You had nothing to do with anything that happened that hurt - or especially helped - anyone in this situation of the local officials and the town that's trying to put them to justice. You haven't lifted a finger, but you open your damn mouth all the time and complain that we - the sheeple! - do nothing. But you're a not a sheep. No, you're a tool.
