On CNBC today, Cramer highlighted what Goldman's PR spokesman had to say about the rumors of Lloyd Blankfein's $100 million bonus on deck.
"There’s speculation, and there is stupidity. This speculation transcends the simply stupid and takes it to an entirely new level."
And because of that, Cramer said Lucas Van Praag should get hazard pay. Because he was on the front lines in this war defending Goldman. Since, of course, they weren't financial terrorists!
But back in the real world, we have snipers defending the "Green Zone" in Iraq. From 1500 yards out. A terrorist, strapped full of bombs on his body vest and his legs, believing he could have an early meeting with Allah, wanted to take some troops out.
He breached the perimeter, and was taken out by one of our finest.
So please don't equate the defense of a thieves to the front lines, where people defend our country, and where the words honor and respect have meaning.
