Think about that for a minute. $90,000,000,000.00
And today, it has come out that AIG is now paying out $1,750,000,000.00 in bonuses.
Folks, you are being robbed. Not by a man with a gun or a knife, but by a group of people wearing suits, with good friends like Hank Paulson, and Tim Geithner. I say it's time for some Capitalist Punishment. That's right, I am calling for our government to begin summary executions for the entire board of directors of AIG, Hank Paulson, and Tim Geithner! We execute everyone else! Fuck, Texas executes children and the retarded! I say we give them to Texas and tell them it's time to live up to their reputation. Tell them they're be forever labeled "Yellow Bellied Cowards" if they don't follow through! And, We'll sell them to Mexico!
Paulson and Geithner are both Capitalist conspirators, and should be charged with aiding and abetting grand, grand, grand, grand, grand larceny!
If you are not outraged, then you deserve this.
And let's talk about Capitalism for a moment.
I saw Michael Moore's new movie, "Capitalism : A Love Story". I loved it.
But there were a few points brought up, and one I feel is worth stating.
If the point of Capitalism is that the "good" businesses will survive because the consumers will choose them, and the "Bad" ones will fail. And they should be allowed to die off, according to Capitalists. Then why did all those Capitalists insist we had to bailout "Bad" businesses that the consumers decided should fail? Why did they want a "Socialist" bailout for Capitalism?
If a business is "Too Big To Fail", then it never should've been allowed to grow that large, and should be broken up and dismantled. That, or allowed to fail!
