    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I think Canada has a history of accepting draft dodgers back during the vietnam war era. Start there.
    I'm not alone. My grandfather had to flee Egypt after Nassr's nationalist uprising and I can't blame him for it. There's no reason to live in fear in your own country. Do you think these executives are just going to stay here and get slaughtered by a mob of ignorant people? We're getting dangerously close to the persecution against the "vampiric Jew." They're going to leave and then who's going to be left to run America's businesses? Barney Frank? Nancy Pelosi? Good luck with that.

    If you have the money you can escape.
    There are nations more than happy to take the wealthy or wealth creators and not punish them for it.

    Amazing this discussion occurs about America.
    A place to escape the punitive, intolerant, anti-American beast it has become.

    But there is a line from Three Days of the Condor.
    At the end Redford is advised to leave the US by an assasine who was after him.
    The exchange:

    Turner: I was born in the United States, Joubert. I miss it when I'm away too long.
    Joubert: A pity.
    Turner: I don't think so.

    Amen

    I'd fly The Stars and Stripes upside down, not as a sign of protest or disrespect, but in its nautical meaning... showing distress.

    If a crew abandons a ship in distress to save their life, the last thing to do (if they have time to do so) is to turn the flag upside down. This means that they give up any right on the vessel or cargo and anybody who manages to rescue the ship afterwards could keep it.

    We aren't about to go through some reign of terror. And if these execs leave, a fresh new batch of them will step in.

    What we need is enough people to care enough to make sure that Pelosi, Frank, Dodd, and Reid all know at their next elections that we will not stand for this anymore and they are the ones who are fired.

    There are a couple of core issues on the block here. The peoples anger is not "caused" by the government, it's caused by a combination of things, government actions are just part of it. People are losing their jobs while these AIG execs are being rewarded with taxpayer money for running their company into the ground. It's almost too unbelievable to be true. Anger, resentment, loathing...it's already there. What these dumb****s like Dodd and Frank are doing is exacerbating an already bad situation by lying and playing political games to cover their ass. Now we have the personal safety of some of these AIG douche bags in jeopardy because of another group of douche bags are fanning the flames. And Barney ****ing Frank should be impeached for his actions. As has been pointed out by others, when you mess up just say "hey, I messed up, I'll correct it, I'm sorry." Or better yet, just be upfront in the first place. The train is barreling down the tracks full speed and we have a group of idiots wearing conductor hats saying "I'm not touching the brakes because I didn't start the engine!"

    This is the kind of **** that will make me vote third party.

    And Zimmer, will you come back down to reality and stop with the Nazi bull****? Godwin's Law will kick your ass.

    No wealth here... I just don't want my taxes paying for this crap. It's wrong.

    Why don't they just put the bonus recipients in these so we can all spit at them and throw rotten vegetables:

    If someone ends up getting killed after a politician demonized them and then released their name to the public, I would certainly consider that politician to be at least partially responsible.
    Well since no law was broken then... I think this is the argument your kin has used with regards to the Bush admin.
