I am not only opposed to the NASD/NYSE merger, I have yet to find anyone who approves let alone had voted in favor of this. This has been rammed down our throats with no concern about the wants and needs of the majority of the NASD members. Shame on you The pittance we have been offered as compensation is nothing shot of thievery I would love to have you come to my home and try to rob me in this manner, I guarantee the results would be different.
