    You may be right about the death threats but what is the appropriate punishment for MONEY WHOREING..., destroying world economies? WE had some frozen bodies pulled out of tents ,here in Nashville this winter, others made it through the winter weather but still don`t have two nickles to rub togethr for warmth. These were former home owners, not savy in the ways of liveing the homeless life (cardboard boxes and tents). Millions of lives destroyed by a few MONEY WHORES. What say you...? What is an appropriate punishment for this unbelievably accepted crime of stealing from the investor, the retirement plan,the insurer,the corporate nest egg,the home buyer, etc? Express a little outrage, PLEASE ! ...P L E A SE !

    If you are pointing your gun at Congress for the situation, then fine.

    If you are blaming people for acquiring individual wealth, you're barking up the wrong tree.

    Government can only destroy wealth by their interventions. Screwing up the free market, and that is what they have done.

    AIG bonuses don't add up to peanut shells in the Grand Scheme.

    The US government has screwed the pooch by using banks as social programs. When you force banks to loan money to people to buy houses that should be renting... you've got a problem with time.

    Communism took 60-years to implode... using banks as social welfare took far less to cause us grief.

    And NOW YOU KNOW... every time government says they want to "Help" you... you get screwed, and in the worst case scenarios... people die because of it.

    It happened in New Orleans as well.
    People used to looking to government for the answer, for their Savior... died waiting for help... they were expecting from the state.

    And people want government to handle their Health Care?!

    Let the businesses fail,that is the appropriate punishment for any business who makes bad decisions.Yeah people will loose their jobs,but they can find work just like everyone else who looses their job. If these businesses are "too big to fail" then they should not be allowed to exist in the first place.

    Express a little outrage, PLEASE ! ...P L E A SE !
    My outrage is over the fact our government has bailed these companies out instead of letting them fail and my outrage is over the fact our government gives away billions to other countries as though this money somehow grows on trees. Yeah tax payer money shouldn't be spent on bonuses,tax payer money however shouldn't be used to bail out companies.Complaining over these bonuses is like complaining that the extortionist you were forced to give a million dollars too is wasting a dollar buying a QuickTrip(popular convenient store chain) soda fountain drink. Your outrage shouldn't be over the soda fountain drink, your outrage should be directed at the people who forced you to give the extortionist a million dollars.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    No... That is not adequate... what we need is to bring to light ALL the crimes, and bring the criminals to justice.

    AIG at this point is merely a DISTRACTIOn from the real theft. AIG might have been responsible for a few hundred million to a few billion dollars of these bailout scams... the total theft is more like 9.5 TRILLION that' gone unnaccounted for. If people understood that when they signed '800 billion' it was it was a limitless 800 billion.

    Imaging the outrage if people understood that to date they have personnally been robbed of about 300000$ personally?? That sooner or later that's going to show up on your tax bill.

    I don't want to see any type of violence, but when there is no perceived justice then you can expect the public to take justice in their own hands. Same principle as a hockey game, if a bad call is made for one team the other team will have a retribution.

    If we today, were made of the same stuff of our founding fathers, we'd have pulled these guys out of their offices and strung them up in the street.

    Right, so you don't hold the republican congress responsible during 6 of those eight years? Naturally.

    Besides, he was moderate to conservative, economically speaking, and he was pretty much republican in trade policy.

    Again, it is not the government's fault that these people are getting threatened.

    If you are blaming the government for bailing out these companies, fine, but that is where the blame ends. The government is not at fault for idiots threatening people's lives, it is the fault of the people doing the threatening.

    It would be like me blaming the government for me robbing a bank because the economy is bad. Sorry that doesn't fly.

    This is blind obtuseness.

    Dodd on behalf of Obama's admin wrote in protection of these bonuses then riled up the public against them.


    They share some of the blame.
