I’ve said for some time the worst of the 2008 recession is yet to come. It appears one of the villains in that fiasco, Goldman-Sachs, aka Goldmine-Sux, learned nothing from the AGS London Casino gambit that nearly brought the entire world's financial system to its knees. Here's a link:

Fortune article

There are many symptoms of this disease, but there is but one source – greed, the greed of sick men for whom there is never enough – there is only more ... men so pathetic, childish and ignorant of reality they do not understand the most basic fact of life: You can't fill a hole with a hole.

You Got It All

You got it made, but that ain’t enough

I guess you’re afraid, someone will call your bluff

You got so high, you’re afraid of the fall

You’ll never find peace of mind till you got it all

You got the house and all of the toys

You proved you can play, with all the big boys

But somethin’ inside keeps you feelin’ small

You gotta be best, you’ll never rest till you got it all

When you got it all in the palm of your hand

When you got it all, will that make you a man?

You better get yourself home and get down on your knees

Start thankin’ the Lord, for his tender mercies

Give your wife a kiss … hug your kids down the hall

You don’t what, you really got, man, you got it all

Why does this sound like our President?

Well done! Well said!

KS   Because that is who our President is – whether it's plastering his name all over phallic skyscrapers or piling up cash or cavorting with porn stars and Playboy bunnies, he's someone who hasn't learned that you can't fill a hole with a hole – and there is a gaping hole where his soul ought to be.

Top notch, as usual Mr. Cordle.
