Would You Buy Back Your Garbage?

Would you buy your garbage back? Recycling waste is not only good for the environment, it also provides jobs.

    I would like to know if Goldman Sachs gave out big bonuses this year.
    A person I know who works for that company just came home with a new Ferrari. I think this is a disgrace and Goldman Sachs should be giving money back to all of us not giving a bonus to employees to buy toy's.I have a daughter and son in-law out of work because of the economy. Working class people can't find work and they hand out money like it was nothing.
    Please let me know how much Goldman Sachs gave away.
    Thank you.
