95. Something really, really stinks here...
Ok, why would our government practically threaten a large bank into taking money, like that.

In the quotes from this "USA Today" article--Paulson sounds like part of the mafia--strong arming someone, "You
either take that money from us now...or when you really need it, we won't be as nice."

Anyone else feel the stench of Tony Soprano all over this money?

It feels loan sharkish. You take our money. Not because we're nice guys, but because we want
to own and control your ass in the future.

I think this little exchange between the Wells Fargo CEO and Paulson deserves more examination.

I'm sure this little nugget of information will be an important piece of history.

Something is up.
