I know it seems like I rag on the banks a lot.
You know what, I do.

So, Barry, the banks have been fighting governments and people for about 700 years.

It's bankers against the rest of us. I know which side I'm on Barry. It's the same side as FDR was on - the Glass-Steagall side.
Which side are you on, Barry?
You gotta choose one.
No fence sittin on this fight.
