Now that we have gotten that little Lehman thingie behind us, we can concentrate on what really matters: Bonuses!
You see, we only like free markets when they go up. We hate government intervention during those periods. But when these excesses cause market problems, that’s when we want the government to intervene, to spread their socialist love to bankers, to swing that BSD federal largesse. We love the warm embrace of the taxpayers during times of crisis.
The rest of the time, keep your damned interventionist noses out of our business. You are killing confidence and destroying jobs.
