THE STIMULAS MONEY SHOULD ONLY BE USED TO STIMULATE THE ECONOMY. THE BONUSES SHOULD BE RETURNED OR ELSE THEY SHOULD BE PROSECUTED AND PUBLICLY EXPOSED AS THE CROOKS THAT THEY ARE. WHY DOESN'T THE CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT WRITE BILLS AND SPECIFY THE INTENT OF A BILL AND IMPOSE HARSE PENALTIES THE VIOLATERS OF THE LAW? CONGRESS IS NOT DOING THEIR JOB. CONGRESS IS ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RECESSION AND SHOULD BE EXPOSED SO THE PUBLIC KNOWS WHO IS STEALING OUR MONEY. BARNEY AND HIS COMMITTEE KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN AND THEY DID NOTHING.
Hahahaha, hey dickhead, why didn't the "congress" and the "president" stipulate that the bailout money would not be used for such things?:-)
Truth is they KNEW it would, and it would become political fodder for them to throw rocks at. IF they were truely THAT upset, don't you think it's in their power to recend the money? Hmmmm?
No, it's so much easier to tee it up for simpletons and then bitch like the rest of do when the ball is stuck. You seriously believe that Washington has NO idea that AIG was going to distribute bail-out money to executives as bonus pay???
But wait, that would mean that you'd have to "trust" Washington to have your back wouldn't it? I mean, if the smartest, best qualified folks that we could elect were in charge, then surely they would have seen through the smoke screen of AIG and never have given them the bailout money, unless of course the bonus pays were eliminated. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, again :-)
YOu want to be angry? Then get pissed off at a President and Congress that throws money at a problem and when they "find out" that it's going to contractually obligated pay, then you should start to wonder just how much they fucking know about what's going on.
This on-the-job training shit is going to kill us.
