Bank of America's We-Don't-Need-No-Stinking-America Patent Application

from the how-nice-of-them dept

theodp writes "Americans are a real problem, explains Bank of America in a just-disclosed patent application for County Assessment. 'A typical American employee,' complains BofA, 'demands a high salary, good benefits, a good work environment, vacation time, and other job-related perks.' Such problems are solved with BofA's patent-pending methodology, which eliminates 'demanding work force' problems by identifying another country for a corporation to relocate its work force to."

    Yup, Parrat Sure is Part of the Problem.

    Still you say nothing.

    Your second paragraph seems to change tunes from it doesn't seem to be all about money to "it's whether you did anything that matters". That would seem to be something aside from just accumulating dollars. In that regard, I am still attempting to do something that matters while you just want to accumulate wealth at the cost of your neighbors.

    What do you not understand to equate even one minor step such as medicare to help your fellow citizens being equal to a scenario like Red Book Maoist socialism. Check out a few European countries. There are degrees of going left.

    You sound greedy. Europeans will pay more taxes but receive more social benefits. The higher six figure income plus salaried people do not have a problem with that. They enjoy their life and what they do which does include being socially responsible to their own people.
