The WOMEN in the USA are such B.S. Artists. They claim white-male-domination causing too many top corp. manage. jobs to be held by males, but who holds most of the Stock that elects most of the Corp. Directors that choose the top Officers of corporations? ANSWER WOMEN OWN MOST STOCK IN AMERICA. Women claim most men make more money, claim women only earn 67 cents per hour worked in private industry vs. men. Yet in Manhattan, nowadays women in their 20s earn higher rate of pay then the average man in his 20s. But if women start earning less in their 30s and 40s that's because they CHOOSE to quit working or work less to raise children, usually by tapping into (parasiting off) some man's hard work to subsidize them (whether voluntarily or they get the UnConstitutional Gone Rotten Government to force by use of Guns, a male to pay for the woman's children, same Rotten Govt. by force of Guns keeps the male parent away from his kids). Few males have the choice to work less in their 30s and 40s cause a woman will subsidize them to stay at home and raise the kids. Plus women in their 20s make even far more than men from work on average by work, because many women in their 20s do prostitution, income from which they almost never report. And lastly, while Women continue on their mis-information campaign about how they are supposedly discriminated against economically, then why do they end up with most of the country's money in their pockets at the end of the day? Why do women have most of the bonds, bank accounts and most of the Stock-holdings, if they were discriminated against? Fact is its Men in USA who are discriminated against, by the Legal System. Men who are kicked out of their families by dirty govt. with guns, if a woman squeaks in New Jersey among the worst. Men who's life expectancy is now about 5 years less than women's in USA, but 100 years ago they were the same. The whole difference is Govt. Laws and welfare programs against men and in favor of women.

Guess Goldman Sachs will have to pay it. After all they are to big to fail. If it hurts their bottom line they can go to the Federal government for a stimulus payment.

Sorry for the mis-spelled word---I suppose these folks have ahigher opinion of themselves than the company. Again--why all this class-action nonsense--
