AIG is the symptom

Detonation is the cure.

"This is why the fucking companies that managed themselves into oblivion should be allowed to fail and not propped up. The consequences of the decisions being made about the economy will stick with us longer and with far more negative repercussions than the New Deal could ever have. With the new deal we socialized benefits for individuals. Now the Fed and the Treasury are essentially Medicade/Social Security Disability for corporations. But not all corporations mind you, just the largest ones with the most political clout. Don't think for an instant that Google, Microsoft or Intel would get these bailouts. They aren't a.) connected to the inner workings of the Treasury dept or b.) Blue collar like Ford or GM.

Oh, they are also pretty well managed and wouldn't ever need this kind of bullshit.

I can take the multi-cavity search at the airport, but the outright thievery of my tax dollars to line the pockets of piss poor managers with golden jet packs just pisses me off.

And yes, I just coined the term "Golden Jet Pack", chew on that."

They spent how much on 100 people? Wow. It didn't occur to them to cancel in light of recent events?
