    Why would they allow you to short GS? LOL. It gets bailouts, the CEO can still keep his $70,000,000.00 "bonus", it now can become a bank and lose more people money. Come on now, GS is the cornerstone example of turning this country into Russia, even though the democrats were supposed to do that! Oh how ironic, not really if you paid attention to history. But yea, why are you shocked? GS runs shit, but it's just a conspiracy...shhh.

    They got 10 bill in the bailout, wasn't that roughly how much their Alpha fund lost? lol.

    Nope nothing disturbing about that, now move along.
