B. I did not detract from blame being put on the ones who made the threats. You fail.
C. Political grandstanding and scapegoating that leaves families exposed to threats from the general public is worthy of scorn and contempt no matter what party did it. This time, it happens to be Frank and Dodd who are democrats. You fail.
Are you telling me the Nazi's and their propaganda arm did not incite the citizenry?
That was the point.
Someone tried to make the point government was free of responsibility for fanning the flames, adding fuel to the fire, inciting the public.
Isn't the last bit what they intended to do?
Incite the public?
They went way too far.
Their pointed and senseless campaign of wanting these folks identified and vilified for political posturing is sick.
Especially since THEY VOTED to give these bonuses.
That makes it all especially twisted.
And these people are our elected representatives looking out for our best interests?
We are in huge, huge trouble.
PS. I hope you come under their wrath so you can feel the full impact these morons can unleash; the full weight of the Federal Government and their propagandists in the press.
PSPS. It's not a game; it's people's security, their lives, their families and friends.
This is a low point in American history.
We're living it.
Government targeting private individuals that received money approved from government.
It is sad.
America acting like a Banana Republic.
I feel sick.

I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
The other is a decision to take a military action overseas.
TOTALLY THE SAME THING.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Here's a clearer analogy to the Dodd/Frank scapegoating:
My mom (the public) told my sister (AIG) she couldn't have any cookies (bonuses) until she cleaned up her room (the company). My brother (Dodd) gave her a cookie and when mom found out, I (Frank) inflamed my mother by stating what a thieving little layabout my sister is instead of just saying my brother gave it to her. Now my sister is fearful that mom is going to take action against her.
Who's fault is that?
As opposed to this clear analogy about the Iraq War...
My mom (the UN) told my sister (Saddam) that she couldn't have a cookie (WMD's). My sister told everyone she had a cookie hidden in her room. My Dad (the US government and several allies) went into her room and ransacked it looking for the cookie my sister claimed to have. I (some anti-war nuts) protested and rioted because we didn't want Dad in my sister's room looking for a cookie that may or may not be there.
See the difference? Probably not because partisanship has a way of blinding one to nuance and...well in your case, reality.
