THE 1560's WERE AWESOME

Been awhiles since I dipped into the political tard jungle! But this whole AIG (or should I say USAIG) thing is crazy. How did it get to be that an insurance-fucking-company has the power to destroy a country? Amazing.

The economy is in the shitter, half the people I know are unemployed or will soon to be unemployed and retardedly rich dudes are taking all the cash they can from these ridiculously leaky and impossible to track bailout plans before boarding jets to island safe houses in foreign waters. I'd prefer if everything just went straight to shit and Mad Max times were upon us. But alas, we're a civilized bunch of idiots. We don't throw shit anymore, we instead to choose to eat it. Daily. And like it.

But one man is brave enough to say what we're all thinking! Enter my hero for the day Sentator Charles Grassley from Iowa! A true Masaki Kobayashi fan! On AIG douches getting crazy bonuses for failing, he sez:

"I suggest, you know, obviously, maybe they ought to be removed," Grassley said. "But I would suggest the first thing that would make me feel a little bit better toward them if they'd follow the Japanese example and come before the American people and take that deep bow and say, I'm sorry, and then either do one of two things: resign or go commit suicide."

Of course this is all after the fact and a drop in the trillion zillion dollar bucket, but ya know. Take what I can get. It'd be dope if we took up the practices of them Samurai goons from back in the day. Belly cutting party begin! Senate and House gone! Heads everywhere!

I checked the box on the bottom of my tax return so I could donate an extra two dollars to the "pay an AIG CEOs insurance premium." They really need our help. It's at the bottom, right next to the "Presidential Campaign" donation box.

The best article I've read on how we got here is this:

Yes, it's a real story and not a Rick Roll. Read it and understand.

It makes you see the whole John Stewart / Jim Cramer debate in a very different light.

It makes you want to throttle CNBC (and pretty much any financial journalism entity) that much more for sucking Wall Street's cock instead of... oh... actually doing hard core financial research and reporting.

I like that link, sent it to a few friends too.

It kinda sums things up to high level people not understanding something fully and only seeing dollar signs. Wait, are those the same fuck-faces that are getting the million dollar bonuses!?!

I say death by firing squad, and the shooters will be determined by a lottery you buy tickets for. I would buy tickets for that. I am not sure where the proceeds would go yet, but I know where they won't.

This is one time when I wish we were more like France.

They would have guillotined the AIG bastards after destroying Wall Street in a riot.

Then they would have sat around and made love with their faces.

Mon dieu!
