By the way, when is GS going to pay back the tens of billions that were given to AIG by taxpayers so that Goldman would not go under as the insured counterparty to credit default swaps guaranteed by AIG that had gone sour?

After watching most of our manufacturing industries shipped overseas, we have been reduced to tapping on keyboards, greeting people at department stores, flipping burgers, providing menial healthcare services for pitiful wages and shoving stacks of paper to and fro, while producing little that has any lasting value.

Our financial industry, which by and large is run by Illuminist crooks, are using insider trading information from the PPT, led by Goldman Sachs and their government-gifted, front-running trade algorithm, to gun for the fast and easy buck, thereby transforming our capital markets from places where we can invest in our future into gambling casinos complete with craps tables and roulette wheels.

When they profit, they get outrageous bonuses, but when they have gambling losses, they pass them on to taxpayers via the sewer slime and pond scum in Congress and in the Executive Branch who are attached to marionette strings, with the Puppet Masters in our shadow government holding the sticks to which those strings are attached, causing them to bob and weave like the wooden dummies that they are.

They will pay it back when the government attaches salary cap strings to it like they did with TARP.
Notice how quick GS paid their TARP back.

Until the 12th of Never? (and that's a long, long time?)

Actually I like his purple prose.

"Ahoy there, Captain Obama. There's a Vampire Squid swimming along the port side of the USS Banana Republic. Well then, what are you waiting for, First Mate Geithner, hoist up the Jolly Roger in acknowledgement!"

"And how much of this GS toxic waste has been pledged as collateral at face value for near zero interest Fed loan money which they have parked with the Fed at 3% or which they have used to buy equities on insider trading information as the leading PPT operative with their front-running trade algorithms as the stock markets have rocketed 60% in six months for the first time in history despite the fact that we face the worst economic scenario in our history? Of course, we can't tell, because GS won't disclose it and the Fed says it's a state secret. GS is simply ignoring the new Basel II and Basel III mark-to-market rules which now apply to them because they opted to become a bank to get Fed bailout largesse. Who is going to make them comply? The BIS? The Fed? The Treasury? The SEC? The CFTC? The FASB? The President? The Congress? The Supreme Court?"

I wonder about this too, though in shorter bursts. Neat article, thanks for posting it.

Some call them the 'Illuminati' - I just call them 'greedy b*stards'.
Whatever they are doing, the result will me thousands more former middle class homeowners living in tents, the upper middle class sliding down, and the super-rich still avoiding a lot of the tax burden that will fall on whoever's left working.

Make sure you let Obama know this, because he, Dodd and others seem to love the guys at GS and AIG. Enough, at least, to line their pockets handsomely.

As long as the rich -- safe to call them the ruling class -- sucker the middle class into protecting them that's never going to change.
