Goldman buying RollerCoasters?
OK. So Goldman Sachs is buying a theme park outside the United States. I wouldn’t have any problem with that, normally, if it were their money they were using. But is it? They took $9 billion in TARP money, right? They took $13 billion in our tax-payer funds indirectly (part of what we gave AIG in bailout money, so that AIG could make good and pay Goldman).
So my fellow taxpayers, I encourage you to take a ride on the roller coaster in Japan, and make sure you insist on doing so for free! If you can’t get a loan over here, at least you should be able to flash your tax return and get a free ride over there, no?
