So, they picked out some traders at AIG, and made them the patsy. Legal bonuses that were promised to the employees that doesn’t make up 1/10 of 1% of the money being poured out have somehow become the centerpiece for the President and Congress. I swear it was planned. They knew some company would do something like this and pillorying them in the press would take the attention off of the politicians.
Today, at Geek With A .45 there is a post about the new 90% punitive tax laid on the traders at AIG. He even mentions Ayn Rand. She who looks like more and more like a prophet every week. He, well go hit the link and read it for yourself. I was going to post about it, but I won’t find any way to say it any better.
If you are not ballistic pissed off as hell, you don’t understand what’s going on around you.
