But how does one sign this contract with one's own blood, when it can only be completed online?

Or has GS now invented "paper blood" too?


(I wonder, can I pay them with a "paper firstborn" as well?)

"Thank you for joining us.  The first thing we need to do on this conference call is to clarify the title.  It was supposed to read:

'Why OUR world is better than you think'

Sorry about that."

Doing God's work makes the world a better place, for partners.


Why would any customer do any business w/ GS is beyond me.  JPM for that matter.


63 for 63 is approaching Madoff numbers but not quite.  Madoff was 63 wins for 0 at bats.

You know, GS may be doing "God's work" as they claim --- but they never told us just WHICH god it is whose work they are doing!

 I cant say where they keep the stash now, I can only hope that soon, they will have to keester them into a club Fed facility after multiple convictions based on evidence uncovered by the SEC and a vigorous prosecution with no deals by a US attorney.

  (sarcasm off) Its a shame when a situation like that lives only in fantasy, when it would merely the result of our govt officials just doing their sworn duty and haeven forbid, actually earn a paycheck.

One might assume that Lord Blankfein was showing a little humility when he uttered that the Squid was doing God's work. The presumption is that the Squid are God's servants, but there are a couple of possibilities to be considered:

God is actually now the servant to the Squid (no doubt after a Squid arranged leveraged financing of Heaven to unlock the intrinsic value of the Pearly Gates), but the Squid is doing his work for some reason or another (Perhaps they think they can do it better?).

It could also be that the Squid is the earthly embodiment of Satan, who after all is by the dint of his station as the antithesis of God thereby also doing God's work.

In any event, the presumption is that the world ... nay, the Universe, belongs to the Squid, and that is why it is better than you might think.

"Lord Blankfein was showing a little humility when he uttered that the Squid was doing God's work."

But God Got Even
As Lloyd B. God whined that statement out in a nasally, midget-y, Morey Amsterdam voice that annoys the ear like a mosquito whine...

How can you take a guy seriously as a "Titan of Industry" when he sounds like a 5 foot vaudevillian carnival freak show  barker hawking the 3 Card Monte stand?

Problem is:

You got it.  I have wasted enough time listening to his testimony before Congress.  

What could he possibly say that I would possibly believe.  I have other ways to use my precious time, like have a nightcap and go to bed. 

He demonstrates who he is by his works.  IMO, if this is actually going to be Blankfein, he is runnig scared.

Lloyd's nasally voice is proof that GS is a meritocracy of thieves.  There is no way someone who sounds like kermit the frog on helium gets CEO unless he can rake in the bux.

LMFAO - even while gold goes straight up against the dollar moving parabollic against euro, someone didn't seem to notice that our money is being turned into 2nd rate dogsh#t (no, really, there is 1st rate dogsh#t if you feed your dog the good stuff...but I digress). 

Folks, if this is a ball game what inning are we in and how do you win???

Bottom of the ninth, with two outs and two strikes.  You win by walking away and not playing.

Now this is what first rate dogsh#t is:

Pedro: Man, what is in this shit, man?
Man Stoner: Mostly Maui Waui man, but it's got some Labrador in it.
Pedro: What's Labrador?
Man Stoner: It's dog shit.
Pedro: What?
Man Stoner: Yeah, my dog ate my stash, man.
Pedro: Yeah?
Man Stoner: I had it on the table and the little motherfucker ate it, man. Then I had to follow him around with a little baggie for three days, man, before I got it back. Really blew the dog's mind, ya know?
Pedro: You mean we're smokin' dog shit, man?
Man Stoner: Gets ya high, don't it?
[Song, "Rockin' Robin" plays... ]
Man Stoner: I think it's even better than before, you know?
Pedro: Uhhh, I wonder what Great Dane tastes like, man.

I remember seeing a bill board in 2008 from local realtards saying "you'll wish you had bought now"...knew I should have taken a dated pic...GSacs remind of some of these politicians that seem to think video recording and youtube don't exist...they start to think whatever thing the say is the truth, cause they said, regardless of whatever they have said in the past
