Exported Justice

It’s good to see that Goldman Sachs isn’t content with just destroying the American financial system. They’ve got global ambitions, baby!

As worries over Greece rattle world markets, records and interviews show that with Wall Street’s help, the nation engaged in a decade-long effort to skirt European debt limits. One deal created by Goldman Sachs helped obscure billions in debt from the budget overseers in Brussels.

Because Goldman Sachs has such deep ties with our government, there has been little or no legal accountability for their actions that pushed us into the Great Recession. But now they’re f***ing with European governments they haven’t yet bought off. So, we may finally see some justice.

At this point who is willing to argue we’re a country of laws or even basic morality? For whatever reasons, we let perpetrators of banking abuses (that have led to enormous suffering), torture and illegal war completely off the hook. Their wrong-doing remains uninvestigated and nothing is done to prevent future abuses. In fact, Goldman Sachs bankers are making millions in bonuses, Bush is resting comfortably, and Dick Cheney is Vice President again. To see just how f***ed we are, contrast the U.S. with how the British deal with the same problems.

    Goldman Sachs are like steroid users in baseball. You always hear about how well they are doing, and you wonder how they can have such an amazing winning streak. Then it turns out to be too good to be true and they are just a bunch of cheating asses.
