AP Says Dimon ‘Rails’ Against Rich Bashing

From a pre-occupied Associated Press:

Jamie Dimon rails against ‘rich is bad’ talk

December 7, 2011

Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co., is railing against bashing the rich.

Dimon was responding to a question at an investor conference about the hostile political environment towards banks.

"Acting like everyone who’s been successful is bad and that everyone who is rich is bad — I just don’t get it," said Dimon at the conference, which was organized by Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

By the way, aren’t we told that the Obamas are successful? Aren’t they rich? How can the Obamas be bad?

Dimon said he’s worked on Wall Street for much of his life and contributed his fair share.

"Most of us wage earners are paying 39.6 percent in taxes and add in another 12 percent in New York state and city taxes and we’re paying 50 percent of our income in taxes," Dimon said in defense of his fellow Wall Street bankers.

Even God only asks for 10%. But, of course, the government wants to do more for us than God ever has.

But notice how the AP calls Jamie Dimon’s very reasonable and measured response "railing." Twice. The AP never talk about the Occupy Wall Street protesters that way.

Meanwhile, lest we forget, Mr. Dimon was and probably still is a major Obama supporter. Which just goes to prove the old adage, ‘if you lie down with dogs, you are going to wake up with flea-baggers.’

    …everyone who’s been successful is bad and that everyone who is rich is bad… No, not everyone, just republicans and those who refuse to bow down and give their money to the democrat party or those who dusgustingly contribute to the enemies of the democrat party. If it were any more obvious how this administration (regime) works they’d have to put it on America’s most wanted as a criminal conspiracy.

    All you have to do is look at the GM dealerships that were closed vs those that remained open to see how this regime “punishes it’s enemies”. The government under Obama is no longer purposed to govern the country. It has been reduced to being used as a weapon against enemies of the state (the state being defined as Obama, his handlers, and their minions)

    Useless idiots like Dimon fascinate me. If he figured in his property tax, social security, Medicare, Medicaid and other various sundry taxes – he would conclude his tax burden is greater than 50% – which makes him a slave to massive government.

    In his mind – pining for de facto slavery of the productive class is fine – just do not call them bad people while their wealth is being confiscated. One wonders how this guy made it to the level of CEO.

    ‘If you lie down with dogs, you are going to wake up with flea-baggers.’

    RT’d that to all my college ‘acquaintances’ who since leaving as pretty normal skulls full of mush have now become good little ideological Leftists in the wake of Occupy, and who also now are suddenly Gaia’s gift to political expertise.

    Needless to say, nobody got the quote.
