As a play on  JP Morgan Chase advertising slogans: “Chase what matters, then turn your back on it or — TA DA – (this needs no addendum): “The right relationship is everything.” 
The  Senate Banking Committee fawned over Jamie Dimon yesterday and it looks like it went exactly as Dimon planned.
A great visual “screw you.”

Two weddings, two wedding pictures taken at inopportune moments (depending on how you look at it).

I have more hope for the couple in front of the tornado.

Whenever I find myself coming close to bringing down the world economy, the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
via The New York Times
(credit: Jin Lee/Bloomberg News caption:  Days after disclosing a $2 billion trading loss at JPMorgan Chase, the bank’s chief executive, Jamie Dimon, said that “we made a terrible, egregious mistake.” “There’s almost no excuse for it,” Mr. Dimon said about the loss, which stemmed from a soured bet on credit derivatives made by the bank’s chief investment office in London.)

Bag’s Take-Away:
This photo of a foreclosed home occupied by squatters in LA really makes you shake your head. Rather than helping homeowners with their mortgages, banks leave vacant foreclosed homes to the mercy of vandals. Then they sell the property at a fire sale price. Kick out the owners, fail to maintain it, get rid of it cheap. No wonder the economy sucks.

(credit: Jonathan Alcorn/Reuters caption: A bedroom at a foreclosed home where squatters have been living is seen during a blight tour that activists say highlight how big banks are hurting local communities by failing to maintain their foreclosed properties in Los Angeles, California, May 17, 2012. Activists are calling on city leaders to enforce LA’s blight ordinance that allows the city to collect $1,000 a day from banks that do not maintain their foreclosed homes, which activists say should be used to rebuild the neighborhoods.)

The New York Times Magazine asks a Bain Capital executive for his rationale on the validity of the 1%. The outcome is predictable. So is the clever visual assertion, via the faceless workers (that’s you and me, bub), that we owe our jobs to the creative powers of our financial betters. 
And, frankly, where would we be without a shoe to shine?

Companies which were targeted by the group included Bank of America, Wells Fargo, GE, Bain Capital, and JP Morgan Chase. The actions, which were partly organized by United Way, are part of a reemergence of Occupied Wall Street following a quiet period over the winter months.)
