Goldman Sachs Blankfein: "Just a Banker, Doing God's Work"

God's work is never done. If Jesus came back today, he'd need money changers in the Temple. He'd run across a universally hated tax collector, inviting him to dinner. He'd require a prisoner to visit in jail. Goldman Sachs cast of characters stands ready to fill these roles.

Lloyd Blankfein-recipient of billions in taxpayer money through TARP & AIG, indirect tax collector

Stephen Friedman
-potential prisoner for trading on insider information as head of NY Fed

Goldman Sachs
-infected hallowed halls of government with its corporate spawn, modern day money changers

God's investment banking work is never finished. I envision God's wry smile as Lloyd and company approach the pearly gates.
