Emails have emerged in evidence of Goldman Sachs rolling in profits during the housing collapse when they had claimed under oath that they had lost money. Their profits came from derivatives or bets against (short selling) the very mortgage backed securities they had been selling to their customers. Their response is that they are being victimized by the Senate Committee that released the messages because they are "cherry picking" only four out of thousands of emails. "if you only cherry pick just those four pictures of me in the bank brandishing a gun while holding the bag with the $ sign, of course I look like a criminal"

The looneys on the right are still pushing for sainthood for Ronald Reagan, in the mean time they want to put his picture on the fifty dollar bill. In a poll released yesterday 79% of Americans oppose the idea and only 12% are in favor, about the same as Dick Cheney's approval rating. I think they should print a special bill with his picture issued in commemoration of Reaganomics. When you put it in your wallet it dissolves the rest of your money and leaves you in debt with no job.
