"Legally" my foot: there's never anything legal about fraud, and this whole article screams defrauding the people not only of the EU but of the world, as the whole world is now paying for the deception. The deals were secret because if they had been exposed before the transactions, the world would have condemned them as immoral and unethical and even technically illegal. The spirit of the law is honesty, not shady deals.
Look, Goldman Sachs is scum. I know that's considered harsh, but I'm not saying that they can't repent, atone, and be forgiven. I'm not saying to throw their souls to the lions in the Lake of Fire, the bottomless pit, and outer darkness — all that are Hell. I'm not saying I haven't made mistakes. I'd say, change, rats, except that would be unfair to rats. It's more, change, serpents.
