On Jamie Dimon

The BEAST » Blog Archive » The 50 Most Loathsome Americans:
"7) Jamie Dimon
Crimes: It takes a special kind of asshole to helm a publicly bailed-out multinational bank — one guilty of defrauding investors, bid-rigging, bribery, and market manipulation — to a 23% market cap loss, earn an astounding $42 million doing it, and fail to grasp why people hate your thieving guts. JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is that special kind of asshole. As a part of the stunningly obtuse nonprofit advocacy group “Job Creators Alliance,” Dimon joined his fellow embattled billionaires in denouncing the OWS “imbeciles” who, in the words of Tom Golisano, make them want to “vomit.” He may not get why people hate his guts, but he gets that they do, which may help explain why JPMorgan Chase donated an unprecedented $4.6 million to the NYPD’s pepper spray fund.
Smoking Gun: “Acting like everyone who’s been successful is bad and because you’re rich you’re bad, I don’t understand it.”
Sentence: Mob violence."

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
