  2. Given the money machine that is GS, this could actually have implications via increased political contributions to Republicans. Could help come election time. Then again, maybe this article is irrelevant.

    Can someone please explain how politics factors into a regulatory agency?

    No wonder this country is effed...
     
  4. Exactly. If a crime is committed, I don't see how party lines should blur judgment. Black and white. Sounds like a weak case.

    What this boils down to is populism against GS, and monopoly-envy.

    As Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelick and all the others who perped a fraud at Fannie and Freddie and then looted the place breathe a sigh of relief...

    I just don't understand why you guys keep on with this, GS is nothing more than a witch hunt by this socialist president and the socialcrats...

    Did you follow Microsoft and anti trust actions?
    do you think its coincidence MSNBC is so liberal.

    What happens to this investigation if the new head of the SEC is a former Goldman VP.

    The weird thing is that Goldman Sachs has long been a major contributor to the Democratic party.

    It's nothing more than a ploy to make it seem like the parties actually think differently, I think people are finally waking up to the fact that we are stuck in a farce of a Democracy and the two party system is being propped up by corporations and lobbying groups. Look at what's happening in the UK, to be quite blunt, America just isn't used to this thing and a lot of people there are ignorant of what politics are about but Britain is a much older nation than America and have had to deal with a lot of assholes in the past.

    I really like where the current election is going, there's the possibility of an even parliament breaking out and the main parties are scared shitless of that because it gives the third parties a chance to get in because there are a lot of people really angry with what they're doing particularly over MP expenses.
     
  10. The Democrats want financial regulatory reform. The Republicans don't. The Democrats want health care reform. The Republicans? Not really. You don't see the difference?
