AIG: Americans In Graft

Graft is defined as the acquisition of money or advantage by dishonest or unfair means; especially through the abuse of one's position or influence through politics. AIG has positioned itself so that it simply can not fail. If AIG fails, reports indicate that the entire banking system is at risk. How does AIG respond to the crisis which is their making? Handing out bonuses to connected executives responsible for the largest corporate losses in U.S. history.

AIG executives in my estimation are traitors. If capitalism is at risk in this crisis, point your fingers at AIG, not the government of the United States. The Huffington Post outlines the situation and decries the abuse of this inexcusable corporate greed. A loss of $61.7 billion and now AIG is going to pay out $450 million in bonuses to top corporate executives. For what? Sending this country and the world into a depression? All of this happens after the citizens of this Nation have supplied a $170 billion rescue package in many installments to this traitoress company.

AIG; Americans in Graft, Americans in Greed, Americans in Gloom, Americans in Glee? Take your pick. This corporate greed needs to stop under the force of law. That's right capitalist America; under the force of law, and corporate greed is responsible not progressive politicians.
