Goldman Sachs CEO
Says Bank is Doing 'God's Work'.
the role of banks in the financial meltdown, the CEO of Goldman Sachs said
recently he believes his company is doing "God's work."
"We're very important. We help companies to grow by helping them to
raise capital. Companies that grow create wealth," CEO Lloyd Blankfein
said in a recent interview. "This, in turn, allows people to have jobs
that create more growth and more wealth. We have a social purpose."
Given that Goldman is doing
"God's work" and that CEO Lloyd Blankfein is arguably "god on
earth", it is fitting for there to be a prayer in his honor.
Tonight I received a prayer in the email dedicated to Lloyd. Unfortunately I
do not know the origin, so I do not know who to credit. I also modified a few
sentences that I did not think fit very well and added sentences where they
My Version of "Lloyd's Prayer"
Our chairman who art at Goldman
Blankfein be thy name
Thy rally’s come, God’s work be done
In the Dow as it is in the Nasdaq
Give us this day our daily gain
And forgive us our frontruning, as we punish those who frontrun against us
And bring us not under indictment
But deliver us from regulators
For thine is the cashflow, and the power, and the bonuses, forever and ever. Amen
Version as Received
WHO ART AT GOLDMAN
HALLOWED BE THY NAME
THE RALLYS COME,GODS WORK BE DONE
WE HAVE NO FEAR OF CORRECTION
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY GAIN
AND BANKRUPT OUR NEAREST COMPETITORS
LEAVING NO ONE LEFT TO STAND AGAINST US
AND BRING US NOT UNDER INDICTMENT
FOR THINE IS THE TREASURY
AND THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE
FOREVER AND EVER
"Black Swan" Comments:
When I went to elementary school, we started each day with the Lord's Prayer
and the Pledge of Allegiance.
Since the LLoyd's Prayer has already been covered, why not cover the Pledge
Pledge of Subservience
I pledge Allegiance to the Fed
of the United States of America
and to the corruption for which it stands,
one nation under Goldman, easily divisible,
with criminal acts against all.
