I just think it's ironic that the workers party actually seems less radical then the current administration.

But no... Really... AIG is passing out bonuses with our tax payer dollars and are making DAMN sure the government cant tell them what to do with the money they took from us and gave to them. AIG is doing this to prove the point that we are NOT in a totalitarian socialist government. AIG is passing out bonuses for YOUR FREEDOM!.

Ugh. You know its kind of scary that THE GUBERMENT IS GONNA STEP IN AND MEDIATE THIS SHIT, but its even worse that these companies give out such huge bonuses and severance packages. Especially when its for people like that home depot ceo who fucked his company into the ground and still received a multi billion dollar severance package.

I don't really see what is so capitalistic about getting a bunch of money for being a failure.

Well at least the American Empire won't go down violently, just a slow progression into vagrancy. Like a herion addict.

I'd rather have the guberment step in for a few cases until we can have more economic safeguards against that kind of stupid shit then let them get away with it so we can maintain the guise of being pure capitalists.

Capitalism has gone through many different forms. We had to build in safeguards so that people couldn't monopolize. This is just another step. ;\

I think the system of ownership has changed enough to merit these changes because these business owners aren't only accountable to themselves and t heir own investments, but to stock holders and other interest parties as well. In a way, corporate is just representations of these parties ;\

We should have just never let the government "bail out" anyone. Yea the companies would have flopped from all the bonuses and severance packages but after they went down other companies and investors would know not to do that kind of shit. Hmmm... we can keep our money here in the company and stay open for business or we can give it to this retard who has only hurt our company... This crap would have continued and some more companies would have gone down before people started getting it but we would have been a LOT closer to working this out. Now all the execs will expect a huge bonus even if it drives the company in the ground because the government will just pay for it all. Basically we have gone against capitalism to promote capitalism?

AIG said they had to pay these bonuses because they were contractually obligated to and that if they didnt the execs would go off to other jobs where they would get bonuses... WTF is that shit?!?! If they didnt get out bail out money they would be OUT OF A JOB anyway... At least this way they got to keep their jobs! Oh and I would really like to know who really thinks hiring these failures and giving them bonuses is going to do anything good for their company that they would give them a job. Really I want to know who those geniuses are. I bet they dont exist, especially in this economy. They were just a negotiation tactic used to secure bonuses. God this shit pisses me off!

I just did some quick math to figure out that they could have served about 50 million meals to starving African children with the money AIG used for bonuses.

Yea, I'm pretty annoyed that Obama's policies so far have been to give a bunch of money away. Especially since there doesn't seem to be much of a plan on how it is supposed to help the economy. I don't really understand how we have all this money to spend ;\ Isn't it a bunch of loans or something?

I think the reason why we had to bail out these companies though is that, theoretically, if we didn't then our economy would shit itself.

What really annoys me the most though is that AIG already used their last bit of bail out (or whatever it was) money to pay off some of their ceos because they had CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS TO MEET THAT WERE MADE BEFORE THE AGREEMENTS WERE MADE WITH THE GUBERMENT SO THEY COULDNT BE RESTRICTED but now they are just doing the same thing again four months later ;\

People are getting it. I mean, this story has outraged pretty much everyone, and congress and THE PRESIDENT are stepping in to pimp slap them. From what I understand either the company has to give the money back, or congress is going to tax them for an extra 187 billion dollars (the amount of money they are giving out in bonuses).

AIG is full of shit for saying this. Companies, big and small, renegotiate contracts due to financial problems ALL THE TIME.

Our Economy reminds me of the Terri Shiavo case.



But anyways...anyone realize that we owe China a shitload of cash and they don't accept bank notes. They only accept REAL MONEY, you know silver and gold, what our economy used to be based on. They may be commies, but they're fuckin smart. Unless we do something, they have our Guberment by the balls.
