    Ten percent of the 700 billion bailout may go to bonuses. If this happens and there is no outcry from the elected officials, we need to swamp their offices like was done when this bill came out.

    for once, i agree with you. it's bad enough they need to be bailed out, using tax money as bonuses to reward failure is ridiculous. hell, using it to reward success is ridiculous. i wonder what barney thinks?

    I heard a similar story on NBC last night... the term "villagers with torches" was mentioned if the bonuses get paid.

    In my opinion, any organization that accepts government rescue money should have the wages of their executives published until it's all paid back.

    If they do pay out bonuses this year, it is time to close accounts and sell stock. As always, our best recourse is in the marketplace.
