Protestors Bussed to AIG Exec’s Homes

Posted in AIG, Barney Frank by Wayland Abernathy III on March 22, 2009

It is just this kind of dumb move that shows that many Americans have no idea what is going on. Obama must laugh every time he reads these kinds of idiotic things. Class war? You betcha. Why can’t these people going out of their way to harass AIG executives stop telling others how to live their lives? It seems to me that they don’t need the help – it is the other way around. I love my home, too. I still don’t believe that someone who has more money than I do should help me pay for it. That is the easy way out – which is exactly what our current Administration wants people to strive for. What a waste of good American people. Why doesn’t Obama have faith in us?

And why is it OK for Barney Franks not to be reprimanded for the highly insulting treatment he (and many uninformed Americans – to include most of Congress) has shown to these business people. If they decide to return some of their bonus, good for them. It is their money. After they pay taxes (another story for another time) they can do whatever they wish with their money. I won’t even get into the list of people that knew these payments were due by March 15th. You probably already know who they are.

The fact seems to have escaped the warped minds of those folks in Congress that they brought this upon themselves. Why not scapegoat the folks receiving the bonuses? Better them than us, is what Congress is saying. And they wonder why people in fly-over country have questions about the way things are being done in D.C.

Crazy, isn’t it?
