F*ck A Corporate Thug – We Want Our Money Back Suckas!!

Northern Trust

We thought you may want to know where some of your hard earned tax money is going these days:

A bank that received $1.6 billion in bailout money just spent a fortune last week in L.A. hosting a series of lavish parties and concerts with famous singers … and TMZ cameras caught it all.Northern Trust, a Chicago-based bank, sponsored the Northern Trust Open at the Riviera Country Club in L.A. We’re told Northern Trust paid millions to sponsor the PGA event which ended Sunday, but what happened off the golf course is even more shocking.

Northern Trust flew hundreds of clients and employees to L.A. and put many of them up at some of the fanciest and priciest hotels in the city. We’re told more than a hundred people were put up at the Beverly Wilshire in Bev Hills, and another hundred stayed at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel. Still more stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Rey and others at Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica.

– Wednesday, Northern Trust hosted a fancy dinner at the Ritz followed by a performance by the group Chicago.

– Thursday, Northern Trust rented a private hangar at the Santa Monica Airport for dinner, followed by a performance by Earth, Wind & Fire.

– Saturday, Northern Trust had the entire House of Blues in West Hollywood shut down for its private party. We got the menu — guests dined on seared salmon and petite Angus filet. Dinner was followed by a performance by none other than Sheryl Crow.

There was also a fabulous cocktail party at the Loews. And how’s this for a nice touch: Female guests at the Chicago concert all got trinkets from … TIFFANY AND CO.

As for what all that costs: Well, the company isn’t talking. We spoke with a rep from the band Chicago who said Northern Trust paid them around $100,000. A House of Blues source told us it cost more than $50,000 to close the joint down last Saturday night. As for Sheryl Crow’s fee, her rep didn’t get back to us. Earth, Wind & Fire acknowledges payment but won’t say how much.

WTF?? Our tax money is being circulated to help the rich get richer, as well as tore up and pampered? Damn dat bullshyte. We want to see heads roll for this abuse of power. Click here for more disgusting details.

bail-out bullsh*t

    @Dirty Harriet… did you vote for Obama…?

  • So Sad!!!

    @ eddiedollars215

    Um…Barack didnt pass that package you jackass…it was good ol bush that signed that shit. Now our man Barack has to sort through Bush’s pile of bullshit! Bush gave all that money to his boys before he signed out!!

  • krissy

    All I can say is if they keep this ish up, people will get outta pocket soon, like somebody said, i got college to pay for, along with loans….although I voted for Obama, I know that they all are in it together for the money and really don’t give a damn about the people…it’s sad but it’s the truth, the only people who can change is us and if we want it to happen, we can not let stuff like this occur…we must speak out and let our voice be heard…”Power to the People:)”

    @So Sad… you are an IDIOT… no shit Bush signed it into legislation… AND WHO WAS THE MAIN CHEERLEADER… OBAMA… did Barack the Sock Puppet vote for it…? YES… ok… shut up… thats how stupid you idiots are… you think that because I oppose Barack the Sock Puppet… that somehow means I support the puppets on the other side… you probably don’t even know who your state reps are… quit trying to act like you have a clue…

    @eddiedollars215:

    Yeah, I voted for him. And this was because of a few things. Him being black was like number 3. Mostly because the competition didnt look all that appealing especially when a “soccer mom” was trying to pull in the reigns on becoming the first female VP when she couldnt even tell Katie Couric (or was is Meredith Vierra?) which foreign policies she disagreed with. Or which newspaper she read recently..and her answer was “all of them”.

    I mean, wouldnt you know. Democrat and Chronicle for me.

    Anywho…..that seems a little light, but I dont want to get all into it. But, yeah I did vote for Obama with the same thought of a republican being in office. They are all out for the same agenda.

    I think we as African-Americans were happy because now we could tell our kids that they can be anything they want to be, as well as give reason as to why our ancestors died and what they fought for. For this day to come.

    But still, I smell fish…..and my twat is always clean.🙂

    @eddiedollars215:

    Hahahahaha @ your comment to SoSad. You’re right though.

    This is why I dont talk ABOUT Barack around too many black people because they are just hung up on the fact that he is black. Thats it.

    There is more than meets the eye.

    If I was Obama, I would be like you mofos ain’t getting another got damn dime out of this government. Let them fail. Let the executives look like the brothers from Coming to Amercica livign ont eh street begging for money. it will not stop until someone steps up and is like enough is enough. No you aren’t getting it. If youfail you can look inteh mirro and blame yourself and point that finger at yourself.

    That is why I took my money out of Wachovia and Bank of America. Neither will get another dime of my money. Cash people Cash. Put your money in a credit union. Keep your money in your mattress.

    A friend of mine just got a notice from Capital One that they are raising her interest rate from 19% to 29%. SHehas never been late and alwasy pays more than the minimum. But this is the best part, if she doesn’t accept the new term they will close her account and have her remaining balance at 29% anyways. The rich getting richer.

    @ Dirty Harriet (Get all up in yo ass like a Enema)

    We should be using Obama as the reason we tellkids they can be anything they want to be. We should be telling them they can be anything they want to be because they have to potential to be. If he didn’t get elected does that mean they can’t be anythign they want to be.

    Before I ever heard his name, I was telling kids whatever dream tehy have, it can be acheived with hard work and dedication to that dream. Thant was like Beyonce saying that Obama makes me want to be smarter, she should just want to be smarter because she wants to be smarter. Do better becasue you are tired of where you are and what you have.

  • jb_1030

    OOps I meant should not

  • Common Sense

    Ok I don’t agree with the stimulas but do you realize what would happen if these banks didn’t get the money…

    No Loans to small companies = companies can’t pay salaries = more layoffs = more defaults on loans and mortgages, rewind

    it’s a catch 22…either way we’re screwed, but I voted for Barrack becuase I believed he was sincere about change…and I still believe he’s sincere. He just had no idea wtf he volunteered for.

  • Inner Beauty Movement

    I can relate to anger I’ve been angry a few times myself. This might be why bank robberies are on the rise. Just remember YOU get 20-Life and investment bankers get a RAISE.

  • Dirty Harriet (Get all up in yo ass like a Enema)

    @jb_1030:

    You’re most definitely right about that. Which was my same question if Obama only serves 4 years and is not re-elected.

    I think him being elected was like crossing over a invisible barrier that was: race. We knew it was there. Other minorities knew it was there. But white people didnt; which is why they couldnt understand why there were people crying at his inaugration (sp?)

    I agree with you though. Our kids should be told they can be anything (and they can). There are no excuses or hand-outs in this world. The most expensive thing is something that is free.

    Well they should throw the CEO, etc. in jail for frauding the Goverment – like they do anybody else who uses Gov’t money on their own personal entertainment, etc. It’s not hard for me. If the country didn’t live by so many double standards – people like them could be held accountable.

    I second that!

    SMH…seems like everybody from the major banks to to people running the stock market are getting caught celebrating with the money they begged for. GM, Chrysler, and Ford also received a bailout and now they are crying for more. Why are we suddenly having all these problems?Too many of these big wigs stashing money, stealing, not paying taxes etc. Ridiculous that it falls on the American people like this.

  • jb_1030

    @ Lady A

    Then they want to go missing or commit suicide instead of paying up. Bernie Madoff is still livign in his penthouse while people he stole from who are 70, 80 years old are going back to work. But the courts dont wan to put him in jail yet. How about we put him in general population?
