I went to High School in Ridgefield Connecticut...my brother still lives in Connecticut...he tells me that neighbors of the AIG bonus babies who now out of work (lots of financial people in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey out of work including my brother laid off from Citi...but hey they can afford 10 million for new diggs for Pandit) are stopping their cars and yelling at these AIG employees and giving them the finger...these are not union guys but neighbors! My brother says so many people have been hurt in this mess that everyone is mad.
This whole mess started with Carters "Affordable housing" bill. Clinton upped it with his "Community Reinvestment Act." The banks had no choice but to comply and took full advantage of it themselves. The politicians GUARENTEED the tax payers would pay off any and all debts if anything went wrong, so they had nothing to lose.
So...here we are, in total chaos and honoring the democrats promise to these institutions.
Instead of tracking down the cause of the disease and destroying it, they're trying to cut out the symptoms of the disease with knives. The useful idiots are after the wrong people. Go after the politicians who wrote the script first, THEN go after those who milked it.
