In message 11150, BJ explains Ryan's greatness in these terms:
He sold, he got out of, he acquired, he bought, etc., etc.
But BJ, he can't MANAGE anything or anyone. All of us who worked for him know that. These businesses were all acquired from other good companies. Maybe Art got the better of all these idiots, maybe not. Time will tell. You are seeing the inevitable benefits of the cash when PRU went from mutual to stock. There are many other examples showing this works for everyone for a time. But when that little boost finally dies, then real management of businesses must step forward. Ryan may be smart enough to get out before then because even he knows he can't manage an organization well. Right now, he has built a portfolio of investments. But he has never, in his over twelve-year tenure, been able to BUILD or GROW anything. The record is clear on that.
Something SHOULD be done about it, but:
"As long as people think they have a chance of getting to the top, they just don't care how rich the rich are."
Maybe we'll/they'll care some when we're all reduced to serfs and peons, working for the lords on the hill.
It's (likely) coming. And we're letting it happen. "Reality" TV, SUVs, Light Beer and Cheetohs for eveyone!!!
Stay the course! Fat, ignorance, and apathy. That's the ticket!

Turn off the caps and spew your drivel somewhere else. The majority of the people on this board are here to discuss this stock and hopefully make money. If you feel that strong start your own message board and see how many people post to it.
