AIG bailout, bonuses, and Corruption
On November 9–10, 1938 The German National Socialist Labor Party (Nazi) organized public protests against Jews as part of their consolidation of power to isolate and destroy sectors of the population. Busloads of party regulars were organized to march to Jewish homes and businesses where they rioted and broke so many windows that the event became known as “Kristallnacht” (glass night).
On March 20, 2009 the American National Socialist Labor Party (Democrat) has organized public protests against AIG employees (white men) as part of their consolidation of power to isolate and destroy sectors of the population. Busloads of union members and other party regulars have been organized to march at AIG employee homes and offices.
How long will it be before they start loading white men onto the boxcars?
Be afraid, be very afraid.
Saint Obama and the Congressional Democrats are “talking tough” about bonuses paid to AIG executives. Read Yahoo Story. Saint Obama has demanded that the bonuses be returned to the government. One Senator said that they would pass a 100% tax on bonuses unless the money was returned. A Republican Senator even suggested that the AIG executives should commit suicide. But lets dig a little deeper.
You may recall, if you read any news at all, that the bailout for AIG was part of the Obama bailout bill which he demanded that Congress pass, and he signed even with 8,000 pork projects included. When Obama proposed the bailout back in February he included a provision limiting the amount that corporations receiving funds could pay their executives. Obama included that pay limit in his bill sent to Congress.
Well, you might think, the corporations should have limited pay for executives, the demands for return of the bonuses are entirely justified. You would think that if you listened to any of the major leftist media, CBS, NBC, CNN, ABC, MSNBC, etc. But you would be wrong. Charlie Wrangle, a Democrat from New York, and Senator Dodd attached an amendment to the bailout bill which required corporations receiving bailouts to pay previously committed bonuses. That’s right, the Democrats in Congress passed a law that forced AIG to pay the bonuses whether they wanted to or not. Saint Obama signed the law, and then sent the bailout money to AIG.
Now, hardly 2 weeks later, Obama and most of Congress is ranting all over all the major TV networks and other media threatening AIG for complying with the law they passed in February. All the major leftist propaganda outlets have joined in the rant. None of the major media is reporting the fact that the very same Congress and President forced AIG to pay the bonuses only 2 weeks ago.
The contrast is so stark that it leaves Bob wondering which bribes AIG stopped paying after it got the bailout money. Graft, corruption, and dishonesty is so deep, deep, deep in the Democratic party and the Obama administration that only a very big loss of bribery money could account for the anger in Congress.
It’s “change we can believe in.”
