No if they said that they would not get elected, therefore would be pretty useless corporate tools. But the evidence is all there, you just have to turn off your TV and go look at it.
Done arguing with you people-I'll have the last laugh first Tuesday in November and hope to good the repubs keep the house so Maxine Waters doesn't take over for Barney Frank as the top dog in the House Finance Committee. What a joke/catastrophe that would be!
But I take it you knee jerks would be happy with either of these morons in charge.
Glad that you are finally done regurgitating Fox news and hannity BS at us. Turn off you TV and do some real research and actually look at some stuff with an open mind. Or just stay out of the conversation after you have been asked to leave. If we want your opinion we will just listen to Hannity or Faux news.
The rich are getting the most tax breaks in this country is a fact. That the median wage has decreased while employee output and efficiency has increased is a fact. That the executive salary and profits have increased over the same time is a fact. Unions have lost power over the last 40 years is a fact. What you think we went over to Iraq over WMD? or cause Saddam was a real bad man? There are lots of bad people in power around the world but we only go to war with the ones that interfer with profits. No we went to war with Iraq so that some companies could make more money in the middle east and Saddam was in the way. That is a subsidy to corporations disquised as national security.
The biggest welfare recipient over the last 40 years are the rich and their companies. THey are also at fault for the situation we are in now. So just go back to your Conifer McMansion and rage along with Hannity about how horribly mistreated the scumbags are that caused the whole financial clusterfuck and blame it all on the hard working people that are actually struggling to get by.
So I am going to cut and paste some stuff here. I think that you would have fit in real well with the subjects of these tests. This is also why your opinion does not really count. You are delusional with phsycopathic traits. The sooner people start stringing people like you from stop lights and lighting you on fire, the sooner we can actually start solving some of the problems facing this country.
"The findings of the psychologist Daniel Kahneman, winner of a Nobel economics prize
, are devastating to the beliefs that financial high-fliers entertain about themselves. He discovered that their apparent success is a cognitive illusion. For example, he studied the results achieved by 25 wealth advisers across eight years. He found that the consistency of their performance was zero. "The results resembled what you would expect from a dice-rolling contest, not a game of skill." Those who received the biggest bonuses had simply got lucky.
Such results have been widely replicated. They show that traders and fund managers throughout Wall Street receive their massive remuneration for doing no better than would a chimpanzee flipping a coin. When Kahneman tried to point this out, they blanked him. "The illusion of skill … is deeply ingrained in their culture."
So much for the financial sector and its super-educated analysts. As for other kinds of business, you tell me. Is your boss possessed of judgment, vision and management skills superior to those of anyone else in the firm, or did he or she get there through bluff, bullshit and bullying?
In a study published by the journal Psychology, Crime and Law
, Belinda Board and Katarina Fritzon tested 39 senior managers and chief executives from leading British businesses. They compared the results to the same tests on patients at Broadmoor special hospital, where people who have been convicted of serious crimes are incarcerated. On certain indicators of psychopathy, the bosses's scores either matched or exceeded those of the patients. In fact, on these criteria, they beat even the subset of patients who had been diagnosed with psychopathic personality disorders."

Now go away, reasonable non phyciopathic, nondelulusional people are trying to have discussion.
