SLL: We don't need to cut government services (except perhaps the military) in any serious way. We need to make the bloodsuckers who have been profiting for the past three decades off the reduced wages and benefits of the majority of Americans pay for the services needed by the majority of Americans in direct proportion to the share of the economy the bloodsuckers have grasped in their greedy, blood-stained claws.
Vampire bats. No. Sorry. That's an insult to vampire bats.
Just for reference, they're vampire squid. Which is an insult to the small vampire squid, since it doesn't feed on blood and it doesn't have a blood funnel.
"The first thing you need to know about Goldman Sachs is that it's everywhere. The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money. In fact, the history of the recent financial crisis, which doubles as a history of the rapid decline and fall of the suddenly swindled dry American empire, reads like a Who's Who of Goldman Sachs graduates." -- Matt Taibbi
"A 2010 Rolling Stone article by Matt Taibbi likened investment bank Goldman Sachs to "a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money." Although the metaphor was faulty, since vampire squids do not suck blood or have a "blood funnel", it was later used by other critics of Goldman Sachs, such as the Occupy Wall Street movement."
