Gangster, gangster. Is AIG fomenting revolution?


The apparently continuing criminal enterprise that is AIG may finally have gone too far this time. The country has been pillaged and looted way too much by arrogant greedheads who think they are above the law.

I’m still not certain that Obama gets how bad the situation is — a ward of the state looting the taxpayers’ pockets and telling the president to shove it, and, until today, the president and his people meekly saying okay. In less stable nations, revolutions get started with less cause.

The Wall Street crowd — AIG is hardly the only culprit in looting from the rest of us — remains deliberately oblivious and supremely arrogant. In less stable nations, this kind of stuff leads to vigilantism.
