'Goldman Sachs Rules the World' Today's News (of years past!)

Remember Shirley Feeney getting so terrified in an allegedly haunted house that (homage to Shirley Jackson's The Haunting ?) that she went clear through it, 'accepted her fate' and sat serenely down with the words, 'LAVERNE, I AM AT PEACE' ? 

My own reaction when I hear the words 'Goldman Sachs' - except all the OTHER stuff - is of a mile by half-mile patch of rugged arid, Puente Hills land~ north end of old Whittier to the south, gated community to the west, and one of the world's largest cemeteries and sanitary landfills to the north and east.  One often finds remnants of burnt offerings, including the ever-popular 'Bank of Hell' notes floating about the lovely, green (if at times, overmanicured) elegantly parklike 'view lot' high hills of the rolling miles of cemetery.  Creepy to you RedStaters, perhaps, 'multicultural' in California.  While California is full of Asian 'debt slaves' life-bound to work off ancestral debt to living people or their heirs or companies*, many of these same are also paying off the guardians of the Place of Departed Spirits for their ancestors.  It's really not so different, now, is it? 

The thing is, this park is (so I understand) named HELLMAN Wilderness Park, not (as I once thought, for a late lamented bakery-goods vendor who truck-delivered through the neighborhoods like the ice cream man, nor) for pleasing those myriads with Tim Burton-like sensibilities, but for California pioneer Isaias Hellman, father of UCLA ('the wellspring of the Military-Industrial Complex') and of GOLDMAN $ACH$.

Hellman Wilderness Park offers spectacular views of the Lost Angels  Los Angeles Basin and most of its most of its facing mountain ranges, a vast lot of OC from peak to $hore, and, of course, Catalina.  If you can get up the steep, unshaded slick-rock trail sections without killing yourself.  Acres of full-thrust prickly pear cacti, milk thistle and tall dead weeds!  Quaint rattlesnakes and turkey vultures for that Old West flavor in the middle of the megalopolis! Chain link to keep citizens out of EliteGate and vile graffiti on rusty water tanks lest the urb seem too far away... But no water, benches... There are misdirecting signs that 'lead you back' off  precipitous cliffs into tangled gullies.  A feast of metaphor if you want it.  HELLMAN!!
*This thralldom is still technically illegal in the USA, but almost nothing is done to investigate the problem, let alone free the slaves.  After all, the JOB CREATOR$ CLA$$ are all for it, and tirele$$ly work to re$tore thi$ anciently traditional economic $y$tem for all of US in America and the whole world.


Click here: Trader Alessio Rastani To BBC: 'Governments Don't Rule The World, Goldman Sachs Rules The World'

Goldman Sachs rules the world and the Euro zone is poised to crash, according to trader Alessio Rastani.

"This is not a time right now for wishful thinking that governments are going to sort things out," Rastani said on an interview with BBC on Monday morning. "The governments don't rule the world, Goldman Sachs rules the world."

The statement came towards the end of an almost three and a half minute interview in which Rastani warned viewers to "get prepared" for the inevitable: "The savings of millions of people are going to vanish" in less than a year, he said.

"This economic crisis is like a cancer, if you just wait and wait thinking this will go away, just like a cancer it's going to grow and it's going to be too late," he continued.'

Fear over the fragility of the European economy has become pronounced in recent weeks. Prompted in part by concerns that the region could enter recession and affect the global economy, stocks composing the Dow Jones Industrial Average suffered their worst week since 2008 last week, according to Reuters.

In spite of statements like Rastani's, Euro policymakers continue to press ahead with possible reforms. Currently, they are working to bolster their 440 billion-euro rescue fund, after being criticized by leaders from both China and the U.S. for letting Greece's debt crisis already wreak havoc on global stocks, according to Reuters.

But the crash will be good news for traders, Rastani told the stunned BBC anchors.

"For most traders we don't really care about having a fixed economy, having a fixed situation, our job is to make money from it," he said. "Personally, I've been dreaming of this moment for three years. I go to bed every night and I dream of another recession."

Rastani said traders aren't the only ones who can benefit from the crisis.

"When the market crashes... if you know what to do, if you have the right plan set up, you can make a lot of money from this."
