Its almost as if they know they are acting like parasites on america.

And that people are noticing.

Although, we cant blame them for wanting to defend themselves. These are some of the most aggressive people in the world.

Criminals tend to be paranoid ,especially, when they are beyond justice. I bet they pray that all the people they have stolen from are put in camps. I don't like the fact that they are free to continue stealing ,but it is interesting to watch as they go crazy.

Just because some twit banker bought himself a firearm does not mean he is not going to shoot himself in the foot first. These are paper shuffling crooks. You do not learn "firearms tactics" at Socialist Harvard or Yale. I want to watch the twit bankers load ... pointy end first ... pointy end first!
Zero firefight experience and they are going to defend themselves? This event would add a whole new meaning to "friendly fire".

2nd line Remember ... Two in the body ... one in the head ... make the mofo stay dead !!!

Ooo... ooo... maybe, just maybe they're buying gums to off themselves! Maybe they're beginning to see that they are the bottom-feeding, carrion-eating, pond scum that created this whole mess and are planning to do themselves in.

hey, we can dream can't we???

oH GREAT! Now these scum will need even higher salaries for around the clock armed guards. These Xe guys don't work cheap. I hear you get a discount with them if you let them have their way with your underage daughters though. Ah, capitalism at it's finest

I can see it already contracts with blackwater to protect themselfs
from the public at large.

Hey, if Goldman Sachs bankers want to exercise their 2nd Amendment Rights then more power to them! Maybe if they are scared enough to want to exercise those Rights, they'll bully Congress into easing off the Gun Control Legislation.

Now the moment that Goldman Sachs executives and bankers start hiring private Military Firms to do individual Security Detail for them, then I would start worrying. The moment we see Goldman Sachs Bankers accompanied by two black SUVs filled with 6 heavily armed Blackwater/Xe personnel then we need to worry.

(Sadly, thanks to George Bush Sr., Mutlinational Corporations have the sovereign right to levy private armies to protect their assets from indigenous people and hostile Goldman Sachs wouldn't be breaking any laws in hiring Mercenaries or Military Consultants/Security.)

I love this from the article, it's just soo damn true!

So maybe other senior people at Goldman Sachs have gone out and bought guns, and they know something. But what?

Henry Paulson, U.S. Treasury secretary during the bailout and a former Goldman Sachs CEO, let it slip during testimony to Congress last summer when he explained why it was so critical to bail out Goldman Sachs, and -- oh yes -- the other banks. People “were unhappy with the big discrepancies in wealth, but they at least believed in the system and in some form of market-driven capitalism. But if we had a complete meltdown, it could lead to people questioning the basis of the system.”

Torn Curtain

There you have it. The bailout was meant to keep the curtain drawn on the way the rich make money, not from the free market, but from the lack of one. Goldman Sachs blew its cover when the firm’s revenue from trading reached a record $27 billion in the first nine months of this year, and a public that was writhing in financial agony caught on that the profits earned on taxpayer capital were going to pay employee bonuses.

This slip-up let the other bailed-out banks happily hand off public blame to Goldman, which is unpopular among its peers because it always seems to win at everyone’s expense.

Plenty of Wall Streeters worry about the big discrepancies in wealth, and think the rise of a financial industry-led plutocracy is unjust. That doesn’t mean any of them plan to move into a double-wide mobile home as a show of solidarity with the little people, though.

Cool Hand Lloyd

No, talk of Goldman and guns plays right into the way Wall- Streeters like to think of themselves. Even those who were bailed out believe they are tough, macho Clint Eastwoods of the financial frontier, protecting the fistful of dollars in one hand with the Glock in the other. The last thing they want is to be so reasonably paid that the peasants have no interest in lynching them.

Yeah! these clowns believe that a handgun will make any difference the day when the masses finally see the truth and the revolt begins!

They will be lynched and dragged down the bloody streets by the peasants!

People need to wake up! - there is NO free market capitalism anymore, everything is rigged by a few fat cats and their henchmen who are now beginning to be really scared, while realizing that their manipulative game and illusionary schemes could soon be over!

If they were smart, they would leave now quietly and leave all the stolen money behind - so it can be given back to the people!

But I am afraid that this is not the case, and this will end very bad, indeed!

They better, they'll need 'em.

I hope they're also buying plenty of ammo, rifles, and rifle plates. Oh and up-armoring their vehicles, installing seismic sensors around their estate and building panic rooms. I also hope they have some sort of new-fangled materials for those panic rooms that are impervious to plasma torches.

They'll need 'em.

The more you hear stories like this the closer to the end point we are. It is almost to the point where it will be a self fulfilling prophecy. I think anyone with a heart knows something is amiss with this picture.

1--We have communists in the white house

2--Dont care what the people think anymore

3--Who you vote for does not matter they are all the same

4--Bankers straight out stealing with the goverments blessing

5--Freedoms being taken away

6--They dont care if they get re-elected

7--Business trying to jokey for postition with the adminstration

8--Large unemployment

9--Gun and ammo sales threw the roof

10--Polarizing of the population by means of race,economic background,political views,gender

I just listed 10 things that maybe on their own would not cause something but when you put them all in play at the same time it only leads to one thing history does indeed repeat itself. I hope I am wrong

We're bullish on these privatly owned companies ...

- Glock GmbH
- Remington Arms Company, Inc.
- Heckler & Koch Inc.
- Colt Defense Inc.

We recommend a strong buy for any of the products that are offered and suggest a strong increase in sales in the near future. LOng term growth outlook looks favorable as governments see a decrease in tax revenues from faltering business', as unemployment rises and property values continue to plummet. We see these companies values going substantially higher. An outbreak of civil violence or a coup would bode well for these companies values.

I hope they stick the guns in the front of there business suits and accidentally blow there *** off.

I also think they need to watch some street hood movies so that they will know to hold the gun sideways to fire it.

All we will have to do is yell boo and they will wet themselves.

The only thing more dangerous then a banker with a gun is a liberal with a gun.

Oh really? So somehow conservative right-wing GOP parrots are the only people covered by the 2nd Amendment? Somehow those people are properly trained but 'liberals' are not? What a tool.

I have an acquaintance who is a staunch right-wing GOPer. He somewhat recently got a gun permit and thinks that he can carry concealed. He can't even own a high-capacity handgun in this state with his permit. But he's to 'informed' to realize this.

I don't consider myself a 'liberal' mainly because those kinds of labels are ridiculous and only a tool of the KoolAide drinkers used to divide the people. But no one would ever align me with what you people consider conservatives/GOP/right-wingers. I wrote-in Ron Paul. I alos have had a concelaed permit in one of the hardest states in the country to get one.

Don't pull this labe BS squeaky. It makes you look like a maroon.
