Congress is a bunch of pussies, derelict in their duties.

They don't even hold the president accountable for his illegal declaration of kinetic military action (i.e. WAR). They give their power of the purse to the private central bank. They are dangerous given their contempt for the American people.

But hey, we can't get too angry at them. They simply follow the orders and talking points emanating from their corrupted parties. And oh what a PARTY it is, all at the expense of the public.

Like I said, ... PUSSIES!

Didn't Lloyd tell Congress the same thing, that Goldman had used the window only once to test it? The day the testified before Levin about the shitty deal?

So he perjured himself too

Had he confessed the truth at the time the result would have been catastrophic.  Although it ran counter to every fiber in his being this small white lie bought the country the time it needed to stablize the recovery.  He is a hero of epic proportion.  Someone plant him a statue in Tel Aviv next to Pollard.


btw, free Pollard.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KUQ0idNEIo

I am pretty sure that there was/will be a covert directive sent out from the WH to prove without a shadow of a doubt that Mr. Cohn is innocent of all future charges.   After all didn't they already say we shouldn't count what happened in the past?!?!

Rule #1- The banks control the government, not the other way around.  In some ways I hope he gets away with it because of last time.  Remember, they tried this last year?  Filed charges and the bottom dropped out of the market?  Or the bottom was dropped out of the market.  The paranoid side of me (getting bigger every day) imagines the GS lawyers telling the government lawyers on May 5th "You're making a mistake here.  Tell your masters to pay attention to what happens tomorrow afternoon, then we'll talk again".  When did GS get their rediculous little fine and when did the market shake off the head and shoulders formation and start rising again.  That paranoid part of me has always thought QEII was a bribe for GS and friends to forgo the fortune they would make on the standard tank-and-buy operation on the market in July and August.  Do you think the Dems would own the senate still if the Dow was at 8000 in November?  Not that it matters it's just crooks of another flavor.  Sorry for the rant, I just hate thieves.

all he has to do is prove he was willfully ignorant at the time of the statement.

That just means some new "system" did not report the sources off all borrowed funds to all the right people :)

Our information systems failed us. We will set up a task force to study the issue and improve corporate communication so that the right people have the right knowledge available to them. We are humbled by this error, but will learn from this incident. We wish we never made mistakes but we are only human.

He is goldman sachs so congress will do nothing. They all need campaign contributions. I am reminded of the song "If I Had a Rocket Launcher."

The little people need to take matters into their own hands if we cant depend on authoritah.

Cmon. There has got to be someone relatively healthy with a terminal diagnosis out there somewhere. Al Queda? Are you all talk? Didnt we hear something about a fatwa against bankers? Now is the time to make amends for that tower thingy.

Consequences in the form of a promotion and bonus?

We don't have laws in this country. We have a set of rules that are enforced on the proles to keep them in line. The master class is immune. They could eat babies in front of CONgress and the only comment would be "Are you going to finish that?". Then Kudlow would go on and talk about how baby eating will drive the economy as the increased need of new babies will create a booming market in doctors.

I guess this means ZH hasn't found evidence of substantial use of the discount window by GS, though it has found evidence that GS used it more than once, including 2 times for $1 million each.
