Of what use is a government that cannot govern? otherwise known as "outrage at AIG bonuses"

[Please click on title to read original article]

What contract binding? If it had not been your and my tax money there would be no AIG. Here is a new contract Geithner:

Call AIG and tell them if the bonuses are not returned, the people who got the bonuses can leave. Don't we have enough people who would be happy to take up the jobs?

A sign that a government is becoming useless to its own people is when it doesn't even want to think beyond a straight line.

Every problem has a solution - if people thought with real earnest. AIG needs a long overdue house cleaning and perhaps the Obama administration is not up to the task...

AIG = Allowing Irreversible Greed.
AIG = All in Greed.
AIG = Arn't I Greedy.
AIG = A$#holes, in general.

This is sick. Why in the world are we helping these companies that keep sending millions to people who do not know how to run a company? They cry yet get paid millions on the "average joes" taxes. Furthermore, I fear this is just the tip of the iceberg. Look what Enterprise rent-a-car did to get bailout funds:

Not to make excuses for these people, but the bailouts are making crooks out of everyone that touches the money.
