"The Cartoon clearly and precisely illustrates Goldman Sachs' amorality! And Right Wing responses underscore the GOP's moral collapse." Agree completely, Ann's cartoon illustrates the insanity of the corruption of Wall Street at the sacrifice of Main Street! The difference between Bernie Madoff and Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Chase or Morgan Stanley is simply the degree of criminality. They are all criminals! When a few hedge fund managers make 25 billion dollars you would think someone might wonder if the economy is off track!

Didn't Democrat Barney Frank head-up the Bailout for Wall Street. Do not almost all of our politicians represent Big Business and Big Money? Is it not time for the majoity of Americans to demand that their government leaders start operating honestly and openly for everyone's best interest. It is time to clean house up on Capital Hill!!!

Meanwhile. . . Mitch McConnell, The Koch owned Chamber of Commerce, Hannity, Limburger, Fox noise, etc.

TRY to paint the Wall Street amoral CEO's as having done NOTHING wrong! Orin Hatch attempts to portray the investigation as a political ploy.

The Cartoon clearly and precisely illustrates Goldman Sachs' amorality! And Right Wing responses underscore the GOP's moral collapse.

Well, thank God our businesses are becoming profitable. A large portion of that profit will go to the treasury. Maybe GS will hire people.

Now, if only we could make it so the US Gov't would have to spend that money wisely.

BTW, anyone who actually follows the GS story understands the inappropriateness and down right irresponsibility of this cartoon. Do some reading, folks.

Lessons from my youth:
Get an education, get a job, work hard, save money, become rich.

Lessons from 2010:
Pay teachers. Ask the government to provide food, housing, medical care free. Ask the government to punish taxpayers. Pay teachers. Ask the government to control food. Punish taxpayers. Pay teachers. Punish taxpayers. Oops... no taxpayers left! Cry. Still no taxpayers.

Goldman Sachs has shown absolutely no remorse in their criminally fraudulent behavior. When the Justice Department start prosecuting white collar criminals like crack dealers and bank robbers and send them to prisons for and with the common folks, I promise that real reform will swiftly occur!

On target! The rich get richer and the poor get poorer! Now the rich are trying to prevent the reforms needed to prevent another collapse for their own greedy purposes.
