Stewart Nails It

You know, you can draw a straight line from those shenanigans to the stuff that was being pulled at Bear and at AIG and all this derivatives market stuff… These guys at these companies were on a Sherman’s march through their companies, financed by our 401k’s.

And they walked away rich as hell, and you guys knew that that was going on.
