Report: Bank of America job cuts may hit 40,000

Bank of America Corp., reeling from concerns over the size of its liability from troubled mortgages, has discussed cutting up to 40,000 jobs over several years as CEO Brian Moynihan battles to reduce expenses with a sweeping restructuring plan, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. And i thought they continued to enjoy record profits from the ongoing bailout subsidy programs? I guess if the taxpayer is powering your business with free money, you don't need so many employees doing work. As we all know, nothing was fixed in the 2008 manufactured crisis. The endemic problems that provided cover for the massive bank bailout fraud continues to increase exponentially. But, we're assured, this time it's different. The last crisis was timed for the end of the election year. Perhaps this one will take place in the summer of 2012. But what will they steal from us this time? With fiscal responsibility being the election year meme, the banks may need to set their sights on other sources of wealth. There's a lot of gold hidden in IRAs, 401ks and pensions. Maybe the times has come for a little retirement raiding? It's not loike that haven't done it before.

Anders Behring Breivik

July 22nd, 2011 marks another black day in the War On Terror.

This time the shot was fired from the Christian side. Radicalized Christian Anders Behring Breivik bombed several government buildings and opened fire in youth camp, killing a total so far of 92 people.

We've learned now that that he's a conservative known for anti-liberal screeds. Further he's expressed a hatred for Muslims and is in strong opposition to Palestinian statehood and the peace effort in the ME.

For this reason, he slaughtered 92 liberal Christians.

As I roamed the net looking for opinions on what people thought of this tragedy (before the shooter's motives were known), easily 15 to 1, expressed outrage against Muslims and called for genocide against all Muslims.

The sheer volume of posts by Conservative Christians who believe in the same things that Breivik believes in was staggering. For myself, I would much prefer a world that doesn't have constant ongoing religious wars between the followers of the descendants of Abraham. I read the screeds for genocide in horror.

These people didn't know anything about the assailant. But that didn't stop them from using his acts as justification to unleash even more death and misery in the world current Holy War.

A few voices spoke up now and then cautioning restraint, but they were easily drowned out.

Today some folks are ashamed that they expressed so passionately the same beliefs, that led Anders Behring Breivik to slaughter 92 fellow Christians. Others condemn his methods but continue to hold firm to their common beliefs.

Regardless, Anders Behring Breivik will be a polarizing voice in this debate. I don't think there can be any doubt that many people will see him as a hero. He hates liberals and Muslims. He turned his beliefs into acts.

Of course many people who agree with him and on the 21st might've even been fantasizing about what they'd like to to Liberals. We saw the Van Jones followers over the weekend kicked it up a notch by driving a MoveOn picnic out of a public park, then follow the folks to private property and continue their harassment while trespassing. The Sheriff was too busy to respond.

Some might take heart that Glenn Beck is out of the picture and his preachings of hate and intolerance are out of the picture, but someone will replace him soon enough. Heck, he might end up on Clear Channel...

This isn't the end folks. What Anders Behring Breivik did, won't be taken as a cautionary tale by those who hate liberals and Muslims with all of their hearts. He'll serve as a hero and an inspiration.

And for many of you that lashed out in fear and anger, then came to your senses. I'm glad you came around. Some of you have publicly expressed remorse. I applaud you for this. If the killer had escaped and remained at large, imagine what the consequences could've been for millions of innocent people, as the world cries out for vengeance against Muslims for deed perpetrated by a Christian, in his own private battle in the New Holy Crusade.
