Goldman Sachs is the Winner that Takes All

Original post made by resident, Adobe-Meadow, on Jul 1, 2009

If there ever was a company that has profited from today's financial crisis its Goldman Sachs. Hail Goldman! I'm being facetious of course. If America is now circling the money drain Goldman Sachs has found a way to be that drain.

Goldman Sachs' electronic trading program was stolen a few weeks ago. The FBI arrested the guy within 4 days of GS notifying the authorities. The prosecutor for the arrest said that if the program could be used "to manipulate markets." Ha! So if someone else has the program to manipulate markets its not okay, but if Goldman Sachs, who created the program that can manipulate markets, has it in possession it's okay?

What a joke and a fraud of a company. Incidentally today GS posts a record profit. Web Link

I say its more like, hail the taxpayer for GS' profits!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
