Senate Takes on Goldman Sachs

Not all the gold, that is beneath the moon,
Or ever hath been, of these toil-worn souls
Might purchase rest for one. ~ Dante's Inferno
The fourth circle of Hell is for those guilty of greed.
Nothing will come of the charges that Goldman Sachs lied to investors with the purpose of defrauding them. There will be no prosecutions, no business will avoid dealing with Goldman, no country will disengage their economy from this master of evil. There is no mortal on earth brave enough to stand against the Devil.

As Forbes points out, "the entire fabric of the global financial system would be threatened" by any effort to make Goldman Sachs conform to the rule of law or standards of human decency

Such is the power of the Prince of Darkness.
