No, no, no, you’re supposed to cheat the bastards outside the bank, not us!

Goldman Firing About 20 Junior Staffers for Cheating on Tests

  1. That will be an eye-catcher on the old resume:

    “I was too corrupt for Goldman Sachs.”

    Sadly, they’ve probably all been hired by either the White House or Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

  2. I should have expected GS to fire the ones who didn’t cheat on the test. Maybe they couldn’t because there weren’t any.

    The historian is out at the moment so I may be wrong but I am fairly sure that Spartan boys were taught to “live off the land” and were punished if they were caught stealing – not for stealing but for being caught. Goldman Sachs has a number of similarities to ancient Sparta, not just its ruthlessness but also the expectation that helots will supply all their food.

  4. So Much For Subtlety

    Nothing to do with cheating at all, but did anyone see the All Blacks pound the day lights out of the French?

    I thought South Africa was lucky to have beaten Wales.

  5. “I thought South Africa was lucky to have beaten Wales.”

    I agree, it was very close. A few less injuries to the Welsh squad and they probably would have had them.

    It’s a bit irrelevant though, if NZ can play like that again they’ll put any team to the sword.

  6. So Much For Subtlety

    In other off topic news, the Revolution continues to eat its own. Everyone’s favourite Black Oxford Lesbian radical activist is being condemned for not abasing herself enough:

    The OUSU Women’s Campaign — a feminist society that meets in her own Oxford college — has condemned her public statement as being ‘rife with apologism and we do not condone it, nor the violence it describes’

    In the agonisingly right-on argot of modern student activists, the group added: ‘Rape apologism manifests in infinite forms: we define it as any discourse that refers to sexual assault as anything other than what it is — unacceptable and appalling abuse.’

    Lucy Delaney, the OUSU’s vice-president for women, also chimed in with equally politically correct language: ‘In a society which silences survivors and which tolerates rape apologism, it is essential that liberation spaces do not harbour or protect abusers, otherwise they are no better than the institutions which perpetuate oppression.’

    But I am starting to feel sorry for her – which is hard for me to do considering she is most famous for trying to remove the statue of Rhodes. She obviously has some Daddy issues:

    A poem published online by Miss Teriba hints strongly at the effects of an absent father. It is entitled White Boy What Have You Done With My Father’s Bones?, and in it she asks: ‘How do black fathers mistake home for [a] shackle?’

    There is a lengthy diatribe against the legacy of slavery, which she argues often leads to a black man walking out on his family with ‘an itch in his feet which he just can’t scratch’.

    ‘Ask yourself why black men are ripping our families apart,’ she adds, before concluding with the heart-rending phrase: ‘Who will teach me to love myself when my father is a village in ruins?’

    Ooookaaay then. Apparently White people are all to blame because Nigerian-born fathers do not stick around to be supportive husbands of Nigerian-born mothers, and so leaving their British Black lesbian daughters with a lot of issues.

    It would be contemptible if it wasn’t, actually, so sad. This girl has been let down by a lot of people in her short life. Her radical feminist friends just being the latest. She needs help, but modern Britain is unable even to ask the right questions.
