AIG's Big Party

To quote Mr. Reagan, "there ya' go again."

AIG's Big Party.

Whatever the "legitimacy" of this event may be, I question the whole thing - where is the restraint? Where is the sense of management? Could not a lesser venue be found? A few of the trimmings trimmed away? Is business so self-indulgent? So blind to its moral ineptitude?

The love of money is the root of all evil, and here is a gang who loves money and loves it profoundly. While millions of Americans wonder where the next meal is coming from, how they're going to pay the rent and purchase the prescription, AIG throws away a half mil as if it were nothing, and plans to throw even more away.

Of course, these are money-making subsidiaries. Well why not take that money and start paying back the American taxpayer? Shame on the Reaganesque insanity that big business is our savior. They should all be fired.
