One of my conclusions drawn from my experience with being briefly fabulously wealthy (worth several hundred million $$), is that nobody makes that kind of money without cheating/stealing/raping to do it.
This theory continues to be proved out daily.
Yves has the details on how hundreds of billions in taxpayer money is being shoveled into deals that enrich the owners of Goldman Sachs (one of a long string of gimmes to Goldman).
