    That's still less than .25% of what we gave them in total. It's all smoke and mirrors. They are trying to keep you off the bigger things. Like the trillions going out the door in other ways. Why tell the people about the trillions when you can keep our minds tied up with the millions that they set into motion.

    And what... Do their families deserve to get death threats over that? What about the piano wire?

    Sounds like a witch hunt to keep us off of what they are really doing...

    All the government has to do is take what ever amount was paid out in bonus out of the next bailout check. Now you know there is going to be another don't you? Just deduct the bonus money..

    Next question. Why were the documents turned over to the Conn. Attorney General. Is AIG based in Conn.?

    No.

    What about it? Crazy people live in our society. What makes you think I have to answer for them?

    Ok ... I'll hold down being pissed about AIG just giving 73 people a million dollars and 5 people more than 4 million dollars OF OUR MONEY. I invite you to figure out what they are doing with the rest of it.
