Goldman Sachs, aided and abetted by corrupt and/or cowardly appointed and elected officialdom, stole directly from we taxpayers the same funds that they have since handed out to their employees. Please, tell me, your Lordship, where's the general prosperity in that? All I see is specific prosperity for you and yours to the detriment of me and mine. This makes the putrid nonsense of Ronald Reagan's trickle down economics seem almost reasonable by comparison.

Hanging Too Good for this Lord.
Try not to choke on your breakfast, lunch, or dinner when you read the enclosed article. Goldman Sachs International's Vice Chairman, Lord Griffiths, has opined that the public must "tolerate the inequality of bonuses as a way to achieve greater prosperity for all." In a world where outrageous and indefensible rubbish is spewed daily by VIPs, this patent, steaming load of horse hockey stands out.
