Ah, so what's $13 billion between cronies?
Any lie is considered acceptable if the target is a rich financier or firm. Why? Because hatred of capitalism is rampant.
I don't hate capitalism. I applaud and admire the businessman who gets rich running a business that does not require billions from taxpayers to stay afloat because of greedy, stupid decisions.
I instead despise the current symbiotic and self-serving relationship between the likes of GS and politicians. It reeketh of facism and taxpayer ripoffs.
And I also despise the cheerleaders who cannot tell (or does not want to discern) the difference between the two.
And it is the US government and treasury that requires billions stolen from profitable finance every year to pay for all its middle class entitlement boondoggles to the ungrateful populist rubes on mainstreet, not the reverse.
