    It's called enabling isn't it? Is that anything like when our military or intel agencies torture someone? The Bush admin called it enhanced interrogation techniques...

    TOTALLY THE SAME THING.
    But didn't those people do those things? Shouldn't they be stood up and shamed, at the VERY least?

    I think Canada has a history of accepting draft dodgers back during the vietnam war era. Start there.
    And they were right on in doing so...

    I'm looking at some property in BC. Sorry to slap you in your jingoism but I think Canada is a better country.

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.
    umm, you seem to be forgetting that it was the last eight... hell, the last 28 years of republican policies that brought us to this point. Not Frank or Pelosi. I understand why you'd want to forget that part.

    Really? Cuz I seem to remember Clinton being in there for 8 of those years and I'm pretty sure he was a democrat.

    Well by all means, I won't stand in your way if you intend to decrease the irrational hysterics in this country by one more.

    Nobody is arguing that a law was broken. Catch up to the discussion.

    This might be the worst analogy I've ever heard. How on earth do you compare the two?

    Do you know for a fact that every person at AIG getting a bonus affirmatively took actions to do those things? So why demonize them all?

    The government only brought to light what these guys were doing.

    The people that are threatening these families are idiots as well, but then so are the ones blaming the government.
    But it was okay for politicians (the big winners being Dodd, Obama, and friends) to have their hands out for $100k political donations to their campaigns. It's funny how Dodd manages to leave the language in the bill that allows the bonuses and he then rails along with other democrats of the evils of the bonuses... when he got the biggest political bonus from AIG.
    Obama lied... Ambassador Stevens died!
