    this Dimon fellow is.

    Yes, I'm aware that this isn't news to anyone. But again... damn.

      •  Yep. He's in a room full of fans and accomplices. (6+ / 0-)

        I'll never understand how people are charmed by such a detestable dickbag as this guy. I guess it's all part of the well-documented Republican 'Strong Daddy' phenomenon.

        They want a father figure, and they want him to be a prick. Makes them comfortable somehow.

        It's all pretty sick. The whole thing makes me want to retch.

          It doesn't matter how the person got it, it could have been by winning the lottery, being a talented actor, or via inheritance. Americans simply respect the wealthy. Dimon is one of the masters of the universe to them.

            I've been busting my hump to build a business over the past few years, and am still struggling.

            Meanwhile, my BiL doesn't do shit, but he inherited truckloads.

            Guess which one of us gets the respect?

            Yeah, my family gatherings are a real gas. :P
