Janet Tavakoli escalates her fight with the tentacled one.
Keep at Goldman Ms. Tavakoli and know that you have many supporters.
There is no need for anyone to apologize to Lloyd Blankfein for calling him a hypocrite. Blankfein has stated that he wishes Goldman's participation in the FDIC TLGP was zero, yet continues to suck on that big fat US taxpayer backstopped $22 billion.
You're a hypocrite Blankfein...payoff the FDIC backstopped bonds and go out into the capital markets and borrow like a big boy.
Concur. It sucks when the object of our attention and the structure we operate within requires explanations, clarifications and to generally gets us to react rather than act. I am pleased that Janet was able to keep up the tune during the distraction.
At what point DH did this ditty start hitting closer to home? It seems like just a couple of months ago I remember spinning the vinyl at the farm..
love the old folks boogie!
If someone gave you $22 billion to "insure the progressive growth of the US equity markets" would you say no to underwriting this insurance policy? (ps. No downside)
Don't be a dumbhead.
In the future what we have to worry about is the payback of favors. When the jew mafia does a favor for you there is no going back on your repayment responsibility. Why? Do you know what this mafia could do to the US economy?
The problem is that the jew mafia never defines how much you must repay them for the favor. That's the rub. They provide assistance to .gov when they are backed into the corner. The very corner that they created!
The average Wonder Bread tax payer is UBER-fucked. The rest of us have to pay our J-Street supporting accountants to wiggle us out of this mess.
They fucking cycle continues.
as a rule, i don't bother to respond to racist trolls. whether one is jewish, christian, muslin, chinese, italian, irish catholic (i'm one of those), ad infinitum, there are good people in all those groups and each group has some bad apples.
the beauty of the free speech portion of Amend #1 is it allows cementheads like you the opportunity to prove repeatedly just how dumb some people are.
I hope that someday you find intellect.
Oh really? Have you ever watched an episode of The Sopranos in so doing "responding to racist trolls"??
You really are a dumbhead aka deadloser.
DH - I refer you to the comments the right honorable CD made some moments ago... To me.
Now now Miles, don't poke the ass. ;)
Doesn't it suck when "the ass" beats the fuck out of you during your weekly fight club rematch? Jews cannot compete in a real fight club.
She is soooo gonna' be audited by the IRS.
Watch that potential right shoulder formation on the SPX. They've already had two key reversals up at 1080-1100. Perhaps they can't take a hint.
You just gotta love Janet.... nothing like getting poked in the eye - bein' told by a pretty gal "I'm sorry" - then getting poked again, only this time harder!!...
I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
Some folks just cannot but help to stand and in the face of everything say; "This sucks". ZH appears to be a place were folks of a similar disposition to that one congregate. WhoT!
Thanks Tyler, Marla, the whole ZH team and everyone (yes, even the lurkers) who help make this place so special.
BTW, most excellent sentiment Books.
"Some say we're born into the grave..."
HANG IN THERE JANET, INDIANA JONES IS COMING OUT OF RETIREMENT TO RESCUE AMERICA FROM THESE "ELDERS" OF THE TEMPLE OF DOOM.
"MONEY IS THE GOD OF THIS WORLD AND ROTHSCHILD IS HIS PROPHET"
Tavakoli: Viniar did not consider a scenario where AIG and the Fed might consider a partial payment...
Why would he?!? Wasn't Goldman in the habit of telling Paulson what to do?
It seems Goldman was just about the only one thinking they would be paid in full during one of the most frightening periods in modern history.
Any sane person or company was running for the bomb shelter yet Goldman was expecting nothing less than full payment? I wonder why?
Fertile minds might have some ideas. I'll shut up and put my gas mask back on. Someone just farted in the bomb shelter and it's getting a little too thick in here.
that's a pretty weak-ass "apology" if I've ever seen one. I'm curious why Janet seems to be of the opinion that Goldman is the only firm engaged in semi-shady dealings. Haven't we seen over the past few years (or decades, as it were) that certain behaviors, especially when unchecked, run rampant street-wide?
Anal, since when did Janet ever say that GS is the only firm doing this? Links please...
Damn, I had to draw you at 4:20..
CD - I postulate that one must keep the tension roughly equal on all the spokes of the wheel for it to turn properly.
Besides, I would much rather listen to him sizzle and pop... I do what I must to avoid those pesky things, but I will deal make no mistake. Even at 4:20.
Punks that attempt to shout obscenities at passer by need to be dealt with on a neighborhood basis.
Are you that shitbag CD's jew lover? What's your Tweet address Homo?
Make sure you tell Green Sharts... He is still confused as to my position. Thanks for your invaluable assistance in clearing up that matter.
I know Miles and I agree with you. The fact that the poster is registered and thus his history of comments can be viewed means he needed to be responded to. Anon's aren't worth the effort.
But it was a wonderful opportunity to kill two birds with one stone by making a pun on your wonderfully insulting abbreviation (Anal) of the poster's ID (Anal_yst) and unfortunately you were in the line of fire. In fact, I needed you to make it work.
But I did place a smiley face at the end to show good will. ;) :)
gotta keep the wheel spinning brother man.
what a shame to have to apologize to a piece of shit...
"Janet Tavakoli escalates her fight with the tentacled one."
Don't tell me, in the end the tentacle one gets away scot-free. Curious how you have 3-5 Goldman stories during every trading day. Not one story really claiming anything substantial. Go figure, I guess.....??!
(waves)Hi Lloyd, nice blog you have here.
Why isn't there a push to purge the Squid from all gov't ? They don't need more regulation, they need to be removed from regulatory/policy influence , anything less is just chit chat.
precisely....it's all part of that bamboozle
them with bullshit strategy.....
it's complete patronization - becuase it works....
someone cackles and makes a lot of feathers fly
but in the end nothing has changed because no
one demands the bodies...
For those who think the Squid is the only nasty in the sea :
UBS fined £8m over gambling with clients' cash
UBS has been hit by an £8m fine from the Financial Services Authority (FSA) – the third-largest fine in the watchdog’s history – after an investigation revealed four employees of the Swiss-based bank had gambled tens of millions of pounds of customers money without permission.
1) The clients got losses, where did the gains go?
2) This wasn't just one guy and involved separate divisions - what the fuck? do you need a few years in County to even get an interview at UBS or something?
3) I work in asset management. Getting your mitts on client money like this should be next to impossible. What the hell was the internal audit team smoking? How about the fund accountants?
4) Can I get a job gambling other people's money in assets they thought were prohibited in an underhand way - what, the Fed are hiring?! Great!
Why is the term "jew mafia" being used on here?
It should not be in my opinion. Whenever you spot something that grossly violates responsible free speech report it to site management. I have done so

i don't agree with the man's beliefs but then
again i don't agree with your idea of censorship....
he is as entitled to his opinions as you are...
having said that i wish he would find a new home
but working through difficult issues is not solved
by silencing those with whom you disagree....
"jew mafia" and "homo" are not beliefs or opinions, they are slurs. They have no place in a reasoned analysis or an exchange of ideas, which is what most of us come here for. I'm not calling for this inarticulate grunt to be silenced - if he has an actual point to make, let him by all means make it, using what limited intellectual skills he apparently possesses to do so. As for his childish name-calling, however, I say to him "take it somewhere else. Oh, and fuck you, moron."
There is respectful and even heated disagreement over opinion and then there is racist hate mongering and ad hominem attacks. While I can't always describe the difference between the two, I know it when I see it.
Ad hominem attacks have only one intent and it isn't to further a discussion or to express an opinion as the word "opinion" is generally accepted by the public at large.
I have gone to war and suffered 100% permanent and total disability to among other things protect fools and idiots right to be so. (especially since I visit those places frequently) However, there is a big difference between the exercise of ones right to be stupid while being responsible for ones stupidity and not. IF the object was to espouse a position separate from the fraudulent or even along side of the fraudulent.. ok. I may not like it, but I am in my position having sacrificed all except life to protect that. WHEN the fraudulent process becomes a stand alone feature I will go to town.
In its simplest, IF Anon had simply posed the concepts in the form of a question rather than in the form of a stand alone declarative statement I would remain silent and move along. I refer you to the following:
Hi Lloyd nice to see you trolling one of the company assets.
I suspect Goldman would like to see that sort of thing. I also suspect they would plant posts like that.
GSAMP bonds are shit, so speaketh the truth-seekers at Moodys (etc). How's that for the majority hindsight opinion?
For the above comments on UBS...that firm is just laughable how hideous their controls have been. Also, Credit Suisse had rogue brokers selling auction-rate bonds to unknowing investors.
I guess there is such a thing as a finance groupie - I just can't chooose though - Marla or Janet?
- if things weren't hard enough already...
