As long as we're talking about greed porn

here's more...
JP Morgan Chase reports $3.3bn profits

Wall Street bank JP Morgan Chase has reported profits of $3.3bn (£2bn) for the last three months of 2009.

That compares with the $702m profits reported last year, at the height of the financial crisis.

Net revenues for the quarter totalled $25.2bn - higher than a year ago but below the previous quarter's.

Total profits for the year were $11.7bn, the bank said, up from the $5.6bn it made in 2008, with $6.9bn made from investment banking alone.

The bank paid a total of $26.9bn in pay and bonuses over the year, with investment bankers earning a total of $9.3bn.

and the ceo has the utter chutzpah to say this...
Jamie Dimon, JP Morgan's chairman and chief executive, said he was pleased with the bank's performance, but said it could perform better.

"Though these results showed improvement, we acknowledge that they fell short of both an adequate return on capital and the firm's earnings potential," he said.

what IS the matter with these fucking people...? is it possible they inhabit the same planet i do...? i guess if you want real live porn, see if you can catch them on a webcam creaming their pants as they open their bonus checks... better yet, do a split-screen with the bankers on one side and people sleeping on the street in haiti on the other...
