Regarding AIG paying bonuses to the group that lost so much money, I am so mad at AIG's insensitivity, audacity and business-as-usual stupidity, I could spit nails. How dare the company pay huge bonuses out of taxpayer money while we are suffering financial losses and job losses caused by their asinine, free-wheeling, audacious incompetence!
Corporations are supposed to be good at thinking ahead and preventing this sort of PR disaster. That AIG's PR and management people even entertained the idea of paying such bonuses is unthinkable. On the financial side this has to be the equivalent of terroristic treason. They should be given the full pre-2009 treatment in the brig at Guantanamo.
