simon666 - 2009-09-23 Look, we can't make the case that Goldman Sachs raped and murdered a girl in 1990, but by all appearances one could see that Goldman Sachs did in fact rape and murder a girl in 1990.
Frank Rizzo - 2009-09-23 it seems a little harsh but they want to murder you in a well, it says so on this card
THA SUGAH RAIN - 2009-09-24 His description is very misleading. Every firm "bets against" its own positions, its called hedging.
The stuff about corrupt ratings (S&P, Moodys) is exactly true. That is where this whole fiasco fell apart.

Enjoy - 2009-09-24 Goldman Sachs is about as criminal as ACORN. They just wear better suits and make higher bucks.
Dan Druff - 2009-09-24 Wait... so are you implying I can buy futures on underage Guatemalan prostitutes through Goldman Sachs?
How many prostitutes do you think you'd have to securitize and divide into tranches to get a AAA rating?
fatatty - 2009-09-24 Except ACORNs criminals over register voters so they can make more than they would have. When GS employees break the law they cause massive investment bubbles to burst threatening the entire global economy.
smoothbrain - 2009-09-24 yes those two things are the same
