Goldman Sachs: Win, cheat, or quit. We don’t fucking lose – ever.

Lloyd Blankfein, Chairman and CEO Goldman Sachs

Here’s a piece that won’t surprise you at all (from Examiner.com):

…while the firm had been largely categorized a behemoth monolith, GSElevator on Twitter is giving the global bank a bit more color with tweeted glimpses of corporate culture via conversations of workers who don’t take the stairs.

Candid Tweets [EDIT: should read: Candid conversations] from Goldman Sachs employees about working- and middle-class people? This should be interesting:

  • Analyst #1: She lives in Harlem. Analyst #2: What the f*ck. We do God’s work, not social work.
  • #1: For a first year analyst, he’s pretty good. #2: Yeah, has the confidence of a fat chick in a tube top
  • #1: Bali. Jo wants a destination wedding. #2: Nice, and the benefit of being far away, it’ll filter out any poor people u have to invite.

But wait, folks–there’s more. They talk about the #occupywallstreet protests:

  • A#1 (on protesters): I was going to make a sign… Goldman Sachs: Win, cheat, or quit. We don’t f*cking lose – ever. A#2 (laughs): Or… ‘Get rich and buy your own sh*t. Protests and riots are for p*ssies. #occupywallstreet.

I don’t think I need to point out that this is not an exceptional conversation. This is the norm for Wall Street. That’s why U.S. Day of Rage/#occupywallstreet/solidarity protests around the world matter. Because to the top few percent who own everything we have, right down to the way we spend our time in an effort to survive, to love life, to find joy and freedom–to them we are disgusting, worthless, unwashed shit. And more than anything, they hate democracy and free speech.
