If America is circling the drain, Goldman Sachs has found a way to be that drain

Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi offers an interesting analysis "on how Goldman Sachs has engineered every major market manipulation since the Great Depression."

As I've mentioned before, when you look at the reality of America's Political Class:

Bill Clinton Treasury Secretary - Robert Rubin (D-Goldman);
George Bush Treasury Secretary - Hank Paulson (R-Goldman); and
Barack Obama Treasury Secretary - Tim Geithner's Chief of Staff (formerly Goldman's chief lobbyist)

It's easy to see why a reporter would make such an assertion.

The whole Political Class needs to go.

and where is Goldman going to trade their carbon futures?

On the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, where Mrs. Dodd is a board member

I won't be concerned with Jackie's employer... just as soon as we can convince her husband's employer to hire some new blood.

CT voters aren't going to replace Dodd unless they are reminded how much of a self dealing careerist he is

"On the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, where Mrs. Dodd is a board member"

Was she on the board before Dodd and did she have any qualifications?
