      Was the Mossad, trying to divert attention from Gaza.

      Was a U.S. black ops sanctioned by Obama to remove support for off shore drilling.

      Was the illuminati up to their old tricks, invisibly playing with the world like the puppet masters they are.

      Was an act of God.

      Was an accident.

      One of the above? All of the above? None of the above? Some of the above?

      Take your pick

    WOW! Call the FBI LOL

    Goldman Sachs is a Hedge fund, correct?  They buy and sell assets for extremely wealthy people.  It's not as if there was suddenly a disaster.  Even with a few hours to spare, all the hedge funds would have known.  Before the news!  Of course...  The big media CEO's probably have accounts with hedge funds, ya think?

    Its pretty simple when you think about it.

      Goldman Sachs is not a hedge fund. It is an investment bank which makes money by trading stocks, bonds, derivatives and other securities for its own account and by advising and assisting corporations to raise capital, make acquisitions of other companies and the like. Goldman was a major player in the meltdown caused by the bursting of the home mortgage bubble. Goldman manufactured the toxic mortgage derivative and sold them to other banks and pension funds around the world.

        Uh Huh.  Goldman single handled created "the toxic mortgage derivative" monster.....and it is just a fictional comedy of Freddie, Fannie, and Barney squabbling for their right to create and sell derivatives from the get go on their crappier and crappier loans.....that's just a fiction, should be on the Sunday morning cartoons. All righty then.

    My mistake.  It still seems a technicality though.

    Whoever controls the money will surely be first in line for information.  My perspective.

    Something will change.  Only when the structure of these systems is corroded enough.  A manipulative government cannot enforce positive change.  Corruption and greed are natural.  Doesn't matter who holds the reins.
