WASHINGTON - From the White House to Capitol Hill, outrage continues to grow over insurance giant AIG's executives receiving $165 million in bonuses after taking billions in federal aid.President Barack Obama called the company reckless and greedy, Congressional Democrats threatened to tax the bonuses into oblivion.
Republican lawmaker Chuck Grassley from Iowa even suggested that AIG leaders should take a Japanese approach toward accepting responsibility for the collapse by resigning or killing themselves. (msnbc.com)

The Way of the Samurai? For these swine? No, far too noble. Risigning? Pish posh! I'm thinking workcamps.

I say KILL EM ALL...

Owe, did I say that out loud?! Let's just let them get away w/ our money in their pocket; after they already took our money! That's like double taxation w/ a slap in the face, which is illegal btw.

Also, complete BS on the part that the contracts need to b honored. If I came in "under budget" (poor performance, wtvr) I wouldn't get no bonus! If I single-handedly helped cause a recession, well then off w/ my head!
