One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.


"I called Goldman Sachs spokesman Lucas van Praag to ask whether it’s true that Goldman partners feel they need handguns to protect themselves from the angry proletariat. He didn’t call me back. The New York Police Department has told me that “as a preliminary matter” it believes some of the bankers I inquired about do have pistol permits. The NYPD also said it will be a while before it can name names."

"While we wait, Goldman has wrapped itself in the flag of Warren Buffett, with whom it will jointly donate $500 million, part of an effort to burnish its image -- and gain new Goldman clients. Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Officer Lloyd Blankfein also reversed himself after having previously called Goldman’s greed “God’s work” and apologized earlier this month for having participated in things that were “clearly wrong.”

"Has it really come to this? Imagine what emotions must be billowing through the halls of Goldman Sachs to provoke the firm into an apology. Talk that Goldman bankers might have armed themselves in self-defense would sound ludicrous, were it not so apt a metaphor for the way that the most successful people on Wall Street have become a target for public rage."

It's probably nice to amass wealth. I wonder if they sometimes wonder if spending the rest of their lives worried about who will try to take it away from them, is worth it.

That really is a good question.

It must really be a thumb in the eye of the anti-gun socialists to know that their own ilk want that right to keep and bear arms! How can they sell the big gun grab when stories like this keep surfacing. Not to mention Pistol-Packin-Pelosi and her group of clowns.
