Goldman Sachs – Public Enemy #1

Author’s warning: What follows is a sprawling, bloody, semi-coherent mess (at best).  I wrote it when I learned that Goldman Sachs was trying to stifle someone’s right to freedom of expression and because I believe that our recent history is being morphed into an alternate reality, where many important details are being lost or erased.  I don’t trust McGraw-Hill (parent company of Standard and Poor’s) to write the history books.  So, I decided to sharpen the hatchet and take some whacks……
