Choking on The Reality Stick - G. Sachs "Prosecution"

Captain Fantastic
Poster: Captain Fantastic @ Tue Apr 20, 2010 4:46 pm

The epitome of the Fat-cat is back, and his name rhymes with "sacks." This is appropriate, considering that not since Lincoln's prostitution to the Railroad companies have we seen such shameless and unapologetic chrome-plated balls in our corporate governance.

I'm not talking about the fact that most of the commissars and stooges in our government's interventionary nightmare have either worked for Goldman Sachs [2], worked under former Sachs employees, or would later be associated with the big Sachs after retiring from their job. I'm talking about the fact that now even civil prosecution of Goldman Sachs is basically a punchline.

A few days ago Sachs was sued by the SEC, ostensibly out of nowhere (they weren't even given the customary prior-notice to prepare). This is an unquantifiable mountain of horse-shit. I'm not saying they haven't done anything wrong, I'm saying that everybody knows it's a show-trial and nothing will come of it... well, everybody but the average American, that is.

The average American will see this as a fresh reminder of why we "need" financial reform. When Obama gets up on stage and finally signs this shit into law, most Americans will be watching it live on TV--clapping their sausage-digitted mits together, resulting an enormous orange plume of Dorito-dust which will likely be the 3rd of man's creations that will be visible from space.

Make no mistake: This isn't being done to penalize Goldman Sachs. This fact is so obvious that even the GOP is calling them out on it.

It's not just about the financial reform bill, either. What makes this particular moment in time the most strategic for distraction is that the SEC was finally forced to acknowledge 13 years of epic failure. Long story short: A guy ran a $7 billion ponzi scheme, was investigated by the SEC for 13 years and found to be extremely dirty. Four Times. They never prosecuted--that is, until now. This whole Goldman Shit-fit is almost certainly related.

The ish is obviously a hoozle trial from which Goldman SaXXX will emerge unscathed, and which will be used by th' SaXXX-soaked government to say "HEY! See, we're not working for 'em, we SUED 'em! No conflict of interest here! It just so happens that they were TOTALLY INNOCENT."

I have it on good authority that the state's case will be powered by the energy of 400 babies.

I for one commend this new move by the SEC. It shows initiative and yet impotence. Very punk rock.
