Pink Floyd's Animals (Pigs)

Does anyone think that Paulson will aim to please his friends at Goldman Sachs? wrap up the securities with a sweet rebate and sell them to those closest to him? Before you answer, remember that he is asking for protection from oversight and judicial prosecution.

PS: Pink Floyd's Animals is based in part on Animal Farm by George Orwell. Animal Farm is a brilliant allegory of Russia during the times of Lenin and Stalin. My favorite part, though, is how well it applies to United State's society: there will always be someone claiming what benefits him benefits you; that we are all equal, with the fine print reading: but some are more equal than others. And, there will always be someone who will try to take control through elocution, double-talk, and revisionism. Not to be too cynical or anything; I just enjoy sociology, psychology, government, etc, and these social manipulations are an indelible part of human life.

Good trading, cheers, and all that jazz.
