Yes, it really is this bad

Another example of humor that is deadly accurate.

I worked on Wall Street for a few years, elbow to elbow with "top" investment bankers.

It was one big casino with the saps in pensions funds and savings and loans (and us) being used to finance the game and cover the losses.


Once again humor mocks our ignorance and makes us aware that we deserve to be laughed at for our culpability in all of this. What did we expect from elite corporations? That they cared for us? That our interests outweigh their greed? shades of Enron all over again.
