With Mr. Buffett off of their backs, Goldman is now in a position to rob, steal and PLUNDER society as a whole again!

 

NEW YORK (AP) -- Goldman Sachs' first-quarter income fell 72 percent after the bank paid out $1.64 billion in dividends as it redeemed preferred shares it issued to billionaire investor Warren Buffett during the financial crisis.

It's taxed as a preferred dividend.  The accounting basis of the preferred was $3.86 Billion because warrants can't be "free" from an accounting cost allocation point of view.  This is just the redemption at $5.5 Billion plus a couple of quarters of interest.
