17. As easy as it is to snicker, not all bonuses went to...
the bigshots-- there were margin clerks and secretaries getting some of that.

But, I assume they shouldn't be getting any of it either because they worked for the Wall Street bigshots. In fact, they shouldn't be working at all, and they should be subtracted from the unemployment numbers becaue Wall Street employees are all tainted by association and so are scum and shouldn't count for shit.

(And just because a prick like Rudy says something doesn't mean there's not a sliver of truth to it)
