    This an old home movie of Timmy Geithner, right?

    About freaking time this whole asinine ad campaign was lampooned mercilessly. Truthfully ( cute as it is ) it never should have aired to begin with.

    There's an horrific double standard in the Retail Securities Industry. Full Service firms have to cram so much disclosure into their advertising there's little room left for ad. Whereas Discounters are free to portray and PREDICT whatever investment returns they like! See? Even a BABY can do it!

    More repulsive, during the dot.com era was "Stuart" from the ETrade cast of characters. A hapless 20-something w/ zero education ( but still managed to make a killing in the market because he had an Etrade account? )

    Just as Realtors and Mortgage Brokers have taken -zero- accountability for their role in the current debacle we can't seem to free ourselves from, neither did the online stock discounters. Great vid but why'd it take so long?
