Today's world headlines

Tuesday, August 4, 2009


If you've ever seen the work of 3 of my favorite actors Robert Deniro, Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta then you've seen Goodfella's, the semi fictionalized movie made around the life of former (who knows) mobster Henry Hill, then you also know in the movie, after a long planned heist of the Lufthansa airlines cargo, there's a scene that takes place where all the member gangsters are read the riot act by the Deniro character for making some large purchases and other ostentatious behavior, so as not to alert the authorities and other parties on the trail of their major million dollar score..

Well, now life in the world of Obama and his Chicago style Gangster Disciples Government imitates art and progressive mob rule, as the new millennium mobsters in the liberal Utopia who must now hide their bounties from the authorities and public are workers in the finance industry and Wall Street Giants making for the most part honest days pay just like the rest of us out here (most of us).

Just because it happens to be 20 -30 times what everyone else makes is no reason to hate these people.

That is unless class warfare is your intent.

My own conservative, younger brother is one of these Wall Street people via a seat at the Board of Trade, and I can assure you not only is he on the straight and narrow, he spent a million dollars on his education and works as long and hard days as any other people out there.... including and surpassing me, so he and his partners shouldn't be persecuted in America of all places for being smart and rich both at the same time, ya know?.

At least in the America we grew up in, not the nannystate it's becoming fast and furious under this handout "Robbin' For The Hood" administration.


Sorry To Interrupt. But You know what I would say to that sh**?

Sorry Boss it's my dough and Ill spend it any DAMN WAY I PLEASE ..... sir.........and Mr Obama, bite me.

New York Post: "Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein has warned his employess to avoid making big-ticket, high-profile purchases as the gold-plated Wall Street firm hunkers down amid a firestorm of public and political anger over outsize bonus payments.

According to sources at the bank, Blankfein has Goldman in particular, should be toned down in light of the billions in bailout money that banks, including Goldman, have gotten from Uncle Sam."
A source within the bank said Blankfein first began calling for an end to the conspicuous consumption late last year, but has stepped up his campaign in recent weeks as the White House has sought to rein in compensation and as the firm has gotten dinged by a pair of high-profile magazine articles.

"This is a sensitive time for us, and [Blankfein] wants to make sure that we're not being seen living high on the hog," said one Goldman exec.

Indeed, the exec said that senior managers were ordered to tell their staffs that just because Goldman made a record second-quarter profit of $2.3 billion, they shouldn't bank on getting a fat bonus just yet. Blankfein was quoted as reminding staff that bonuses are based on full-year results, and that the year is far from over.

Blankfein's admonishing of workers about profligate spending comes as the firm has been hit with a barrage of negative press lately over its uncanny ability to make money not only in the best of times -- but also the worst.

A Rolling Stone article referred to the firm as "a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity," while a recent New York magazine piece floated the idea that Goldman benefited from the rescue of troubled insurance giant American International Group.

A spokeswoman declined to comment.

Goldman's speedy recovery in the wake of the global recession and the demise of many of its rivals has drawn more outrage than awe.

Observers question everything from the bank's massive pay to its uncanny ability to serve as a incubator for Washington policymakers. Goldman alumni include former Treasury Secretaries Henry Paulson and Robert Rubin, and Jon Corzine, the current New Jersey governor and former US senator.

Goldman accepted $10 billion in rescue funds from Uncle Sam to help it stay afloat last year amid a crisis of confidence on Wall Street but quickly repaid the money thanks to record revenues.

The Goldman exec said that while Blankfein was cajoling workers to cut back on their spending to avoid negative publicity, he was also playing cheerleader.

In a company-wide voice mail left last week, the CEO assured employees that management is "focused on addressing the negative news and that [Goldman] remains committed to integrity and excellence."

"I know you're all working hard," he added.


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
