Masters of the Universe

Talk about ‘roid rage! This email is going around Wall Street. (h/t Steveeboy)

Yeah, I’d love to see one of these smartass motherfuckers teach a classroom full of inner city kids. Let’s start a hedge fund and bet on how long they’d last. I’m guessing two days, tops:

We are Wall Street. It’s our job to make money. Whether it’s a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn’t matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. I didn’t hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000 and everyone’s 401k doubled every 3 years. Just like gambling, its not a problem until you lose. I’ve never heard of anyone going to Gamblers Anonymous because they won too much in Vegas.

Well now the market crapped out, & even though it has come back somewhat, the government and the average Joes are still looking for a scapegoat. God knows there has to be one for everything. Well, here we are.

Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you’re only going to hurt yourselves. What’s going to happen when we can’t find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We’re going to take yours. We get up at 5am & work till 10pm or later. We’re used to not getting up to pee when we have a position. We don’t take an hour or more for a lunch break. We don’t demand a union. We don’t retire at 50 with a pension. We eat what we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plates, we’ll eat that.

This is a really interesting if inaccurate version of reality. Gee, do I even know anyone who still has a pension?

For years teachers and other unionized labor have had us fooled. We were too busy working to notice. Do you really think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping?

Uh, yeah, I do.

We’re going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4 months off a year and whine just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid for building the youth of America. Say goodbye to your overtime and double time and a half. I’ll be hitting grounders to the high school baseball team for $5k extra a summer, thank you very much.

So now that we’re going to be making $85k a year without upside, Joe Mainstreet is going to have his revenge, right? Wrong! Guess what: we’re going to stop buying the new 80k car, we aren’t going to leave the 35 percent tip at our business dinners anymore. No more free rides on our backs. We’re going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a garden hose in our driveways. Our money was your money. You spent it. When our money dries up, so does yours.

The difference is, you lived off of it, we rejoiced in it. The Obama administration and the Democratic National Committee might get their way and knock us off the top of the pyramid, but it’s really going to hurt like hell for them when our fat a**es land directly on the middle class of America and knock them to the bottom.

We aren’t dinosaurs. We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive. The question is, now that Obama & his administration are making Joe Mainstreet our food supply…will he? and will they?

Dude, you might be going to jail. And all the trash talkin’ in the world isn’t go to make a damned bit of difference once you’re wearing the orange jumpsuit.

  1. I just saw the same thing on Digby’s blog. Hard to believe it’s real, but as shown by the Stephanie Grace/Harvard Law School racist email issue, there are too many (supposedly educated) clueless people around. I, for one, would love to see the letter writer be thrown into a third grade class room. After he did landscaping, of course.

  2. “We are smarter and more vicious than that” . . .
    Reeheheheally? Come on down to the valley huero, and we’ll see how ‘honed’ your skills are.

  3. Remember folks, these are just glorified con-men we are talking about here. They’ve taken it to another level thanks to the Bush-Cheney cabal, but they are just con-men. Now they are trying to con themselves to keep their moral up, but they all know they wouldn’t last a week in a real job.

    Their math is a little screwy, too. Duh.
    How are 300 traders going to replace 6.2 million teachers? Or 2.4 million construction workers? And they have the seniority to take somebody’s job based on what exactly? If only stupid was painful…

  4. Psychologically, the author is diagnosable as a borderline and a predator.

  5. This guy is still thinking grandiosely if he believes he is going to come down here with us and still make $85K. He thinks this is a huge sacrifice to come down to that level.

  6. lol I grew up with, went to school with and know these clowns like my own tribe-my impression of them was and still is angry entitled frat boys who think they are not only better than us but DESERVE the rarefied lives they previously lived-
    These dudes have great futures as used car salesmen somewhere.
