"Never go up against a Goldman when money is on the line!"


I find myself thinking that both authors are too optimistic about the scales falling off the eyes of the American public. Those of us who've been protesting this state of affairs will be continued to be ignored by those in charge, while the Randians will simply write this off not as a failure of the philosophy but of the individual humans pursuing it. "Well, what do you expect?" they will say to each other, "They were stupid. If it was me in charge, it wouldn't have happened." And they do believe this.


Lance: It's deeply pitched, I concede, but FYI:

To Mr. Blankfein:
These words "legal" and "reasonable," I do not think they mean what you think they mean.


A day or two ago Paul Krugman compared Blankfein to the Ferengi Quark. A number of commenters in that thread mentioned Vizzini/Wallace Shawn. I think both are valid. And people mentioned the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition and the Grand Nagus. Good fun.
