The Afternoon Line ...



Goldman announces its heartfelt gratitude for being bailed out and will dump 230 New York jobs: "Goldman Sachs Group Inc. said it will cut 230 jobs in New York City between September and March next year, according to a N.Y. Department of Labor filing Wednesday. While the cuts represent less than 1% of Goldman's global workforce of 35,700, they come on the heels of reports that the bank is hiring thousands of employees in Singapore, Brazil and India."

Isn’t the “free market” great? (sarcasm intended)

Way to go Barry ... thanks for protecting all the American workers who voted you into office. Nothing like Hope and Change and an unemployment check to look forward to over the summer into the new year.

On the other side of the circus tent are the Republicans. These are two possible choices (because they aren't locked up in a rubber room somewhere).
Okay, that was a few years old, but really? This is the best either side has? Barry and Bachmann? Oy vey ...

Dodger Blue ... bankrupt? The Dodgers? No sweat, let our illustrious government take over ... we’ll have them solvent in no time ... then they can follow Goldman Sachs’ lead and find players to exploit over in Singapore, Brazil and India.

How ‘bout those Buffalo Bills! Still undefeated in 2011 ... that’s what I’m talking about!

Whitey gets a court appointed lawyer ... you gotta’ love it. “James “Whitey” Bulger, the alleged former crime boss from Boston who eluded the FBI for 16 years and had more than $800,000 in his apartment when he was arrested in California, will get a court-appointed attorney, a federal magistrate judge ruled this afternoon.” One has to assume the feds found something better to do with the $800,000 they found in Whitey’s west coast crib.

The ugly one returned to the gym today after a few days of intense writing. I start anew at 313 (friggin’ lightweight) ... the back porch is fixed and the mini-sauna is out there ready to take care of my sore muscles (and lose half its water) ... it’s a beautiful thing.
