"We're all mad at AIG," says the pro-union Connecticut Working Families Party. Tapping into some of that rage, the liberal group is sponsoring a "field trip" on Saturday to show working people from Hartford and Bridgeport how and where the AIG executives live. Some of the executives who received bonuses work in the company's Wilton, Conn., office.
Those executives "bear a large share of the responsibility for bringing the economy to its knees, and now the same folks are getting hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses -- at our expense," Connecticut Working Families says on its Web site. "Join us for a field trip to bring them the message."
Jon Green, the director of Connecticut Working Families, told the New York Times on Friday that his group would be peaceful and lawful and would not foment lingering rage at AIG unnecessarily.
The field trip will give folks in Bridgeport and Hartford and other parts of Connecticut who are struggling and losing their homes and their jobs and their health insurance an opportunity to see what kinds of lifestyle billions of dollars in credit-default swaps can buy, Green told the newspaper.

I’d like to start my own tour company: Tours of the Hypocritical Class Envy Mongers’ Homes. “...and to the left of the bus is the Obama’s spacious 1.5M mansion, financed by slumlord Tony Rezco. The Obamas made 3 million dollars last year and gave only about 30 thousand to charity...”
It’s another method by socialists to destroy capitalism and our Democratic Republic.
his group would be peaceful and lawful and would not foment lingering rage at AIG unnecessarily.
...I think we all know that “unneceassarily” means that if an AIG exec asks them to please stay off the lawn, that would be enough for this “peaceful” mob to “foment” their “rage”.
I would love to work for you!
Commie rat Union Goons....

It’s one of the Big 10 - do not covet.
Very appropriate terms as well.
I’d call it the Spirit of the French Revolution and we all know how bloody that turned out.
No! It is much more than that. I call this domestic terrorism.
They’re going to Chris Dodd’s house?
The ‘bolshie mob’ should be focused on Goldman Sachs, Paulson, US Treasury et al...the above link regards where the AIG money in the hundreds of billions is going...$183 billion so far, and much more to come.
Looks like Krystalnacht II is closer than ever.
