So yeah, this happened:

Right now everyone is going nuts over this quote by [CEO of JP Morgan Chase & NY Fed Reserve Advisor] Jamie Dimon on CNBC.

The quote:

"Giving debt relief to people that really need it, that's what foreclosure is."

You have to understand to a rich parasite like Dimon the idea of a house being a home is as foreign as caring about America is to GE CEO and Obama Job Advisor Jeff Immelt.

Dimon continued:

"[Homeowners] are probably better off going somewhere else, because they get relieved almost 100% of the debt through foreclosure."

Who cares? Just walk away and take a few million out of the bank (Dimon makes $20 million a year - much of it previously taxpayer bailout money) and buy a new home.

Of course Dimon doesn't realize/care that when people are foreclosed on they usually don't have millions of dollars in the bank to buy another home or even a place to stay. Whatever, Dimon's coworkers at the NY Fed made sure JP Morgan Chase got a nice bailout which is funny because most business professionals and economists, using Dimon's logic would say "bankruptcy gives debt relief to businesses that really need it, that's what bankruptcy is. "

These are the people YOU are allowing to control the American economy. WAKE UP!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
