Jamie Dimon's list of 10 talking points to make before the Senate Banking Committee

1.  I do not remember.
2.  I will have to get back to you on that one
3.  I have already stated my answer to that question and will not repeat it.
4.  Can you repeat that question?
5.  It depends on what the meaning of is is.
6.  Do any of you distinguished gentlemen and gentlewomen know David Letterman's number?  I want to be invited to do the Top Ten List."
7.  I would like to discuss the possibility of the U.S. Treasury buying up all of the distressed paper from our latest risk disaster.
8.  Yes, I am richer than God.  And more powerful.

9.  After we are done here, anybody want to do a foursome at Winged Foot?  I have my helicopter parked outside.
10. Because Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernancke and Tim Geithner told me to do it.

Jamie sent you his notes before the hearing?

Oh more theater of the absurd. He's going to Washington to participate in the farce that is Congressional 'investigation'. Maybe Obama will have him over to tell him what a great job he is doing to make the private sector economy 'just fine'.

What do I expect when "Mr. Dimon Goes to Washington"?

A dog and pony show to placate the masses. while behind the scenes our "representatives" in government solicit him for more campaign cash.

Congress knows which side their bread is buttered on. The "Financial Sector" "donated" nearly 1/2 billion dollars to our elected officials in Congress in 2011 alone.

That's close to a million dollars each for every "Representative" in the House, and every "Senator" in the Senate.

WE pay them about $174,000 a year.

Who do YOU think they REALLY work for?

They aren't about to "bite the hand that feeds them".

Why is Jamie Simon still at the NY Fed? Is the Fed Board of Governors clueless or toothless... or both?

Thanks... and I meant Dimon... just noticed the "S" is next to the "D" on my keyboard - duh ;-)  Either way, whoever he is needs to be gone.  Still can't believe this administration  hasn't the clout (or hasn't tried) to either get him to resign or get him fired from the NY Fed!

It's amazing that Mr. Incompetence, Jamie Dimon hasn't been fired yet. The real problem with US businesses is the decoupling of CEO performance with sucess. One can be a complete failure and still get tens of millions in bonuses and perks.

Unbelievable.

So true. Can you imagine on your job, doing a bad job, failing completely and having your boss tell you how wonderful you are and here's really big raise?

The only material thing Mr. Dimon seems to lack is a Roman Catholic Priest's, Bishop's or Cardinal's robe.  The net benefit is the same, though.  Dimon and the Church hierarchy will never be held personally professionally, or criminally responsible for their lapses, misdemeanors and crimes against those that trusted them.

Perhaps the senators will pass the hat in order to secure Jamie's robe.

If you knew, there is a small country, where corporations, mostly banks, have a right to cast votes, to elect the leader, where vast majority of worldwide currency trading goes through it. All major banks have offices there and run their major deal through that country(like latest JPMorgan/Chase's gamble), where in 2008 $4 trillion of counter party derivative trades disappeared in the banks there (the winners money!). Where the banking rules are secretive, where another small country where they have control over, has no financial laws, and corporations there are used for even deeper secrets. Would you say I am conspiratorial, wouldn't you? But, what I said describes City of London (not the greater London, but the financial district, it is actually a separate country), the other country they control is Isle of man, and use it for hiding deeper stuff. This is where the financial problems of the world goes into a blackhole. City of London has deep secrets, they should be made completely transparent, if the world economy is to improve.

I think Gitmo would be good.
05:13 PM on 06/10/2012
The fact that JP Morgan last year made a $88 Million plea deal for transactions involving Cuba, Iran and Sudan is enough for Dimon to be found guilty of aiding and abetting terrorist and he should be placed in Gitmo.

What to expect when Jamie Dimon goes before a Senate Committee:

1. A Circus.
