Goldman, Bad Pennies, and Squid



March 03, 2010 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: GS

I wrote a piece for yesterday about how when it comes to messed up stuff, Goldman Sachs always seems to be there. (And I might be insulting bad pennies and squid, although, of course, Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi's responsible for the "vampire squid" metaphor. But I do love metaphors, as is displayed in my piece.)

I read this yesterday and rec'd it.  The only way to stop the beast is to stop feeding it.  Outrage isnt enough.  You want to stop the big banks reign of terror on the world, pay off debt, save, invest for the long term, reduce you dependence on the government, and encourage your family and friends to do the same. 

In the meantime it will do whatever it wants.

The article was great, and cathartic to read.  I especially liked the comment in the Comments section that had a link to a wikipedia page about vampire squid.  I just spent the last 20 minutes reading about them while I waited for my testing to finish. 

TMF made me smarter today.

Every time I see "TMFLomax", my brain wants to read it as "TMFLorax".

Thanks! And wow... yeah, the vampyroteuthis infernalis! Holy cow, who knew, LOL... It's a bit distracting from the problems at hand, for sure. ;)
