Congratulations…You Have Bankrupted the Company..Now Here are Your Bonuses For a Job Well Done

Does anyone else but me find this to be a little troubling and surreal? Read this article and watch this video, and you will be even more troubled. While Americans are losing their jobs and their homes, people who played a part in our financial meltdown are receiving bonuses. These are not corporate bonuses from profits, but are bonuses funded by the Americans tax dollars payed by the same people who have lost jobs and homes because of the meltdown, and whose retirement portfolios have plummeted in value. In my opinion, the people who have taken this money and who feel they somehow deserve it, should be named publicly for all to see. In reality, they should be tried for treasonous actions against our nation, in their intentional and deliberate attempt to destroy of our economic system. Their actions have caused great suffering for many American families, and the impact of their actions will be felt by hard working Americans for years to come. So where did the rest of this bailout money go that was received by AIG? Take a look at this quote:

AIG, a recipient of at least $170 billion in federal bailout money , got an $85 billion loan from the Federal Reserve. The list released Sunday of "counterparties" that benefited from the bailout is topped by European banks Societe Generale and Deutsche Bank, which received $4.1 billion and $2.6 billion, respectively.

Whaaaatttttt????? European Banks received U.S. Taxpayers dollars while Americans are going hungry and homeless? Does any of the readers remember voting on that one? Did we missed the memo on that? Would any of the readers ever agree to that? Talk about taxation without representation. Americans better wake up from the slumber that the media induced hypnosis has lulled them into before it is too late.
