Goldman Sachs is a Criminal Racket [And Owns the Fed]

UPDATE III:  "During the financial crisis in 2008, the government made a supremely generous move that most likely saved Goldman Sachs from collapse.

Six years later, Goldman is still reaping benefits from the special provisions that came with that act of mercy, according to the findings of a Senate report that was released on Wednesday."

UPDATE II:  The "New York Fed is effectively captured. It consistently takes the side of the major banks it regulates, whatever the motives happen to be."

Read The Atlantic, How Not to Regulate.

UPDATE:   They call it Government Sachs for a reason.

As noted extensively before, financial institutions, like Goldman Sachs, caused the financial crises. As recently as Februaury 2010, I even stated "Goldman Sachs is a criminal racket and should be prosecuted under RICO statutes."

And a former customer agrees, stating: "'Goldman Sachs is a racketeering entity that does whatever they can to make a dime without conscience, thought, foresight or care about ramifications.'"

Weather Predicting Advice

From an email:

To tell the weather, go to your back door and look for the dog. If the dog is at the door and he is wet, it's probably raining.

But if the dog is standing there really soaking wet, it is probably raining really hard.

If the dog's fur looks like it's been rubbed the wrong way, it's probably windy. If the dog has snow on his back, it's probably snowing.

Of course, to be able to tell the weather like this, you have to leave the dog outside all the time, especially if you expect bad weather.
