...But of these sophisms and elenchs of merchandise I skill not...
Milton, Areopagitica

Except he had found the
standing sea-rock that even this last
Temptation breaks on; quieter than death but lovelier; peace
that quiets the desire even of praising it.

Jeffers, Meditation On Saviors



Livin' la Kosher Nostra:

Jamie Dimon is the slick, vainglorious, silver-haired boss of the JPMorgan house of banksters. This CEO has fostered a culture of thievery during his years as a top executive at JPMorgan, leading to a shameful litany of crime. Yet, federal prosecutors have bowed to the politically connected Wall Streeter, refusing to ruffle his feathers with even a single criminal charge.

Meanwhile, one of the scams that Dimon directly supervised produced a $6 billion loss for shareholders in 2012. And his reign of mismanagement and illegalities cost the bank's shareholders another $20 billion in federal fines last year, resulting in a 16 percent drop in profits.
The CEO says he can't conform to some safety standard, some decent wage idea, environmental damage that results from his company's practices can't be stopped  - because the shareholders.
The shareholders are why, he owes it to them to make a profit. He's legally required to put the profit first. It's in the rules.
They say that all the time.
Nope. Can't do it. We have an obligation to our shareholders.
Why? When nothing happens if you don't? You stiff the shareholders 26 billion and nothing happens.
And all these hate radio clones listeners are all about Obama redistributing the wealth - to poor people.
You're being played, my brothers.
