At all levels, there’s a fundamental shift going on in major restructuring in professional jobs and manufacturing labor during the Obama reign. The focus on education, skills, green energy, health care, proper regulation, less militarism, domestic security, and tax fairness will propel the US economy to new heights by the end of this decade. The Tea Pots can focus on guns, abortion, immigration, and foreign adventurism, but the real benefits will come when better minds get into areas that add value.

LOL!
This was GREAT! We’re supposed to feel sorry for the financial fraudsters in the Wall Street Casinos whose criminal behavior may be curtailed (in perception only) under Dud-Frank and now they’re bored and want to give up their annual million-dollar bonuses. We’re supposed to feel sorry for the executives who hired and participated in the financial fraud and feeding at the taxpayer trough to cover their gambling losses because they don’t think they can recruit any more people with criminal mastermind tendencies, unbridled greed and disdain for the 99%, the peons: “Let them eat cake!”

Boo, hoo, hoo! The life of a One Percenter must be miserable…

Or work in derivatives, CDS and LTCM…

I would rather the Goldman Sachs, Bear Sterns, Lehman Brothers and AIGs of the world drown in debt and divert the intellectual, social and other resources into more Bell Labs, Xerox PARCs and Silicon Valleys.
