Goldman Sachs is a financial firm headquartered in Lower Manhattan. The Goldman Sachs nickname of “Government Sucks” is a composite of two widely used nicknames, “Government Sachs” and “Goldman Sucks.” The nickname is somewhat unusual in that no part of the name ‘Goldman Sachs” is used and because “government sucks” is a sentiment that can be completely independent of Goldman Sachs. The nickname “Government Sucks” is easily identified as “Goldman Sachs” from the capitalization and the nickname’s use in financial stories. “Government Sucks” hs been cited in print since at least July 2009.
Goldman Sachs has been given many nicknames, including “The United States of Goldman Sachs,” “Goldman Shafts,” “Goldmine Sacks/Goldmine Sachs,” “Golden Sacks,” “Golden Slacks,” “Goldie Mac” and “Vampire Squid.”

Government Sucks, or is that Goldman Sachs?
I am not yet sufficiently informed on the many faults of Goldman Sachs to write an extensive and knowledgeable post on its many shenanigans. But, it is very clear that Goldman Sachs has long had much too cozy a relationship with the federal government.

Memo to BP: You’re Doing it Wrong, Part 2
BP have collectively been named “Oil Quaeda” by the locals, if that shows you how much raw hatred there is, especially after the BP leadership unloaded 30% of their stock and Goldman Sacks (“Government Sucks”) unloaded 44% of their BP positions in the weeks before the “spill”.
