You know that $143Billion to save AIG

It might been for nothing. The company is bleeding so bad, that it will sure need more and more $Billions. Lube the 'ol hole.

A number of financial experts now fear that the federal government's $143 billion attempt to rescue troubled insurance giant American International Group may not work, and some argue that company shareholders and taxpayers would have been better served by a bankruptcy filing.

Boy, sure is nice to know that our governemntal auditors looked so deeply into this before jumping.

As for the money, it will go straight into the "vacation in some third world country" fund operated by those who ran the company into the ground to begin with...

After Congress passed the bailout, but before the checks started to be printed, the affected banks set aside a cummulative $20 billion for executive bonuses.

The same executives who put these companies in a position of bankrupcy, are reward with millions of dollars each. If you ask me, these executives should have been fired for malfeasance, with zero severance, and tried as criminals.

The governemt has already tacitly admitted the bailout will cost 2-3 trillion dollars. I think it could hit 4-5 trillion dollars.

As Ron Paul said, the bailout was "the largest robbery in history".

Instead of the Gov. giving the Trillions for the bailout of Corporate America I think they should have given 3 million to each Man, Woman & Child in the US and held out the S.S. and W/H and year end taxes on each Person before it was sent out. That way the Gov. would instantly be in good shape, S.S. would be in good shape, everyone would most likely go out and buy new homes thus putting the housing market back in tip top shape, new & used cars would fly off the car lots thus putting all the car makers back in the swing. People would start to buy stock again. People would buy more groceries for their table so farmers would be put back to work. The list of things that would pick up could go on & on. To me that would have been the true trickle up effect! Then I could have been voted Pres. LOL:

No way will I stay in kitchen, that is what is wrong with corporate world, too many woman & men staying in their own little world and not paying attention to what is going on outside of their own little piece of the world and letting fools take advantage of us. "Take advantage of us once, shame on them," " twice shame on us," thousands of times as we have been taken advantage of and look where we wind up in the septic tank. Not so funny is it now.

You missed the whole point it would be better to give the money to people that would spend it and put it back into our economy than to put in the hands of those people that would just give themselves big bonuses and then go bankrucpt anyway like I think AIG will do.

I think there's a point you're missing. . . .
Where is the money coming from? It's like an advanced loan for your grand kids to pay back. . . . . . .. ..

Heck no, But my thought makes about as much sense as giving greedy idots billions that will not help our economy one bit. OH IN Case you were wondering I have already voted and I voted McCain Because I do not trust Obama. When he first came out for Pres. I started checking him out because he talked a good game, but boy anyone with a half a brain can see what he is all about!
