Wow...just wow.

I wonder, did the machine physically throw him over the bedway, or did he have the presence of mind to dive over to save his leg?

But still it boggles the mind to the level that some people manage to do stupid acts. Sort of like wallstreeters thinking that no one will care, or catch them.

I think he's referring mainly to financial executives maxing out short-term profit to give themselves gold-plated pensions while not caring about the long-term impact it has on the rest of the world.

...Joining the Obama Administration after working for Goldman-Sachs?
...Shipping half a billion dollars of taxpayer money to fraudulent solar-power companies that happen to be major DNC/Obama donors?


That sort of thing?
No?

Saracasm intended.

These guys on wall street are making alot of money, and most of it is made using legal methods. And to be honest, if you gave people the choice between getting 10 million dollars for themselves or giving that 10 million back to where they work...most people would take the 10 million and run.

And before you say it...just because the guy already has 100 million dollars in the bank doesnt make him wrong for taking another 10 million, if the company is willing to hand it to him.
