Goldman Sachs and Pillages

Can you believe the balls on these crooks?

Goldman Sachs Bonuses: Bank Paying Staff Over $5 Billion For Just Three Months Work

Goldman Sachs is facing a potential backlash in Europe over the fraud case brought against it in the United States, with Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown calling for authorities there to investigate and accusing the investment bank of "moral bankruptcy."
...Brown, currently facing a tough re-election battle, seemed additionally angry at Goldman Sachs' plan to pay 3.5 billion pounds ($5.4 billion) in bonuses as reported in British newspapers.
"I am shocked at this moral bankruptcy," he said on BBC TV. "This is probably one of the worst cases that we have seen."
Brown called for a "new global constitution for the banking system" that would, among other things, ban bonus packages like the ones planned by Goldman Sachs.

Isn't it sad when Europe is trying to fix our banking system because our elected government officials are afraid of the banks who line their pockets-even though they almost bankrupted the country?So pathetically sad.
