This Means War: Battered Geithner Turns On Goldman Sachs

Tyler Durden's picture

This latest development will surely end in tears. Said tears will likely not be shed by Lloyd.

One wonders if this escalation make the odds of T to the G's getting a multi-million job at Goldman in a few months when he is replaced by J to the D a shy tad worse.

I heard Timmay sent Lord a note during study hall.

They're going to meet by the flagpole after school to duke it out.

ummmmmmmm, Yeah? I think things are going to be not so friendly next week.

If I were Timmy, I'd get one of those remote car starters about now.

Goldman execs are the only friends Geithner has left.  Now he alienates them... NICE!

You guys owe me!  You really do!  Really!

Hell yes you can undermine the derivatives bill. You can dig at it's feet until the stupid pile of crap becomes earth core material. Nobody is going to turn derivatives into a facist dictator without comprimise.

Hasnt' seen a version of the Tobin tax that gives one group exclusive scamming access.

...your reply follows;

"Hey. I want to break his door down and cut his family into small pieces and feed them to thier own garbage disposal to see if he really believes in what he is saying or he is talking shit on the interenet.

You guys are ruining it for me!!! RUINING IT!!!"






Kick my door on...PLEASE dickhead !!!


Hephasteus's picture

Why are you trying to defend an ancient behavior that if replicated today would result in all sorts of law enforcement intervention so it's safe to talk crap about it on the internet?

Or did I slam you when you were posting anon?

Or do you often engage in philosophical discource without the abiity to discern what is action and what is an arguement point? Or do you just feel unsafe because I mean you no harm whatsoever.

It's only a matter if time now before Geithner sleeps with the fishes.

I'll consider taking Timmy seriously when he stops shaving his eyebrows.

Anonymous's picture

Wow. He really does. Wish Jon Stewart would run with that.

Assetman's picture

Yeah, just what is the deal with the scary non-eyebrows, anyway?

To the OP, things will really escalate if/when Timmy calls out Goldman as "big mean poo-poo heads".

JohnKing's picture

It's probably some banker-frat-boy hazing ritual; Hey Biff, let's slip Timmy a roofie and shave his eyebrows before he has to go on national TV. Yeah..good idea!

Actually, some of my coworkers did that to their sorority brother when they were in college. The guy was one of our salesmen. While passed out drunk, they shaved off one eye brow and half his mustache. Took pictures. It was hilarious.

They woke him up the next morning hung over and told him hurry you are late for class. He just piled out the door. He wondered why chicks were smiling at him all morning...

Problem Is's picture

So did J Edgar Hoover. Look at the old film and newsreels of that guy.

He was freakin' wearing painted on eye brow liner.

So you think men commonly did that in the 50s amidst all the commie and gay as a crime witch hunts? That was one strange crime fighter... J. Edgar, living at home with his mother.

C'mon folks, false flag attack.  You can't really be suprised by this, can you?

Yup, much ado about nothing.

Puuleeze, Timmay bashing Goniff Sachs is just to get his popularity up. Dog and pony show.

Dog and pony for sure.  Timmay couldn't pull off a K9 and equestrian show if his life depended on it.

I like DOD. Always on point. Save the drama for yo momma.

It reminds me of  "professional" wrestling.  I'm sure backstage they are high fiving.

Hello D.O.D.  How're things in Cali?  Found work yet?  I have not.  Hope all is well with you.

D.O.D.'s picture

Hey Boeing, no job yet, thanks for asking. Some opportunities are presenting themselves overseas however. I am a miserable failure at the markets, I am just not that risk adverse; but poker tournaments seem to tilt the odds in my favor.  Otherwise I may go back to school to learn to wipe butts for a joke...  =] (edit: I don't mean to make it sound trival, my brother does it, and is happy for the service he is able to provide for those who need the help, and it is a very admirable job; I just never thought of it as an option for me...until now, not because it is below me, but because I can't even wipe my own without tearing up and gagging...)

I wish you all the luck, and strength to persevere...

these posters always make me laugh...hope you get a chuckle..

Thx DOD.  That web site is a classic.  Good luck to you as well.

Aw gee guys, give Timmy credit for telling the truth - once.  As if anyone with an IQ above 10 doesn't already know: LB is just a lying sack of shit.

Geithner - Lloyd's favorite bitch. Bark for him Timmy

What is the old saying about not becoming a statistic? For some reason I was thinking of U-6 unemployment and then I saw this post. Now I've got an image of Timmay standing in his newly minted blue Best Buy shirt. Imagine him pointing and smiling like a retail superman in front of the newly arrived shipment of Turbo Tax. You, Happier!

A response to the latest RW attack on the scientific community and rational thought (you know, idiots carrying on the "self evidence" theories of Adolf Hitler and others)


A reader writes:

I'm not a climatologist, but I am interested in climate change. Fortunately, I attend a college with a climatologist. I asked her about the data massaging trick and this is how she explained it.

The data in question is actually two sets of data. One being the data from 1BCE to now using tree rings and coral. Tree rings are larger when it is wet or hot and smaller when it is cold and dry. Because wet/hot and cold/dry aren't correlated, there are uncertainties with the data. But, the data from tree rings from 1BCE to now does show temperatures similar with other temperature markers. That is, until the middle of this century.

The other set of data comes from real thermometers, from the mid-19th century to now. The data becomes more reliable as data gathering methods become more precise. What the scientists at CRU did was splice and combine the two data sets. The tree rings data shows cooling that is in opposition to actual measured temperatures. So the CRU scientists combined the two data sets to make it look like one data set that shows more continuous warming.

The professor I spoke with was very clear that what the CRU scientists did may not have been ethically pure, but warming is happening. They probably should have made clear the "trick" they used was actually two different data sets, she said. The information that has become known through this "scandal" may call into question historical climate data, but not current climate data. The world is still warming now, and "climategate" doesn't change the need for significant carbon cuts in Copenhagen.

Continuing OT...

The world may indeed have warmed in the second half of the 20th century.  The warming may have halted or turned to cooling in the last decade.

The earth is most certainly warmer today than the "Little Ice Age" of few hundred years ago.

The earth is most certainly colder today than the "Medieval Warming Period" of one thousand years ago.

The correlation between atmospheric carbon and global cooling/warming is tenuous, hence the need by the Climategate scientists to massage the data to get their results.  Historical causation of global warming by atmospheric carbon is more difficult still.

Climate is poorly understood, and it take very long periods of accurate observation to record statistically significant changes and to calculate correlation with suspected factors.

Greater consideration is being given to the impact of oceanic oscillators (decadal and multi-decadal), even some thought to solar geomagnetic cycles (sunspots and more importantly solar winds).  There are some interesting coincidences between the Maunder minimum (low sunspot/solar wind activity in the 17th century) and the Little Ice Age.  If it is more than coincidence, the unexpected drop in sunspots for the current solar cycle (but predicted by Livingston and Penn) may presage a significant drop in global temperatures.

The primary actors in Climategate should be quickly fired or put out to pasture. Then  important climate research can proceed without the significant taint of politics, bad science, and/or fraud.

There was a quite a lot controversy about influential tree ring data not so far back. Here's one article, but there were bunches more around this time frame.
I'm not a climatologist but this girl I know who is, explained that the charge was that specific trees were picked out of the total available. The picked trees showed warming. Taken as a whole the tree ring data did not.
