Reggie, you've grossly misinterpretted GS's business plan.  Those who invest with Goldman are NOT customers, they are sophisticated investors, counterparties, or whatever.  What they are not is customers.  It is true that Goldman may use the word 'customer' in its solicitations, but really, that's just for show.  Customers have an expectation that those they hire would not attempt to screw them.  I suspect many Goldman customers counterparties took it in the shorts (yeah, pun intended) in such frothy games as the Magnetar scrambler.

Many businesses, including foreign, go to GS to gain political capital, not investment advice.   A major account at GS has immediate access to the most powerful members of congress and to the President's cabinet members.

Speaking of brand names, here is the dirt on how some of those brand names hand over your iPhart and GoogJunk details and bypass your passwords and create clones of your devices for the cops to play with.  No warrants.  No reason.  Just for the hell of it.

why bother with court orders when you can just spend $244,000 of free taxpayer cash to purchase all the hardware

to tap any cell phone out there?

Well you have to admit Reggie can get more milage out of Zulu Squid Hunter than Viking Krakken Hunter.

Then add the fact that it makes the BSNBC watchers squirm in their PC undies and they can't drag out the shopworn Raaacist battlecry.

Priceless.

No reason squid hunting can't be fun. Go get em Reggie.

Goldfuck sacklickers is an epic short, but they are colluding with the Federal fraud syndicate fucking americas youth. They are a GSE for fraud racketeering.

Why anyone does business with them is very telling.

Clinton had his winnie sucked by an ugly fat Jew and then his ugly daughter married a Goldman Sachs bankster Jew.

My comments:

 

I suspect that the photos Middleton previously posted here on Zerohedge where he was wearing some kind of Zulu Warrior outfit weakened rather than strengthened his brand. Perhaps that made him more interesting as a TV pundit but in other respects I would rather think that this weakened his own brand somewhat. I also think that he has realized that now. Last time I saw the Zulu outfit here on Zerohedge was a few months ago.

 

I think that Middleton would benefit more from using his African roots as the head of a mutual fund or a private equity firm that focused on Africa.

Reggie seems to be pretty much right on. His tendency to self-aggrandizement irritates me sometimes, but that doesn't make him less accurate.

Reggie is the Rush Limbaugh of the financial world!   He needs not the golden mic but a Platinum or diamond mic.

 

If Reggie keeps up the attack on GS, he might want a food tester soon. haha   And stay away from hot tubs!

Reggie seems to like what he's doing, and his brand isn't doing bad. I wouldn't change anything.

My comments:

I think that he has a better brand than me. :D

I didnĀ“t say that he should start up a private equity firm or a mutual fund that would focus on Africa. But from an image point of view that is probably a better idea than wearing the Zulu Warrior outfit.

I see what you mean, but image is for the Kardashians, or isn't, as the case may be haha
