AIG has some frickin’ gad damn chutzpah. You mean to tell me after all the billion$ they needed to buttress this “cancer of finance” they want to reward their legions of disease? They may be huge, so huge that they need to be shut down. But they’re never going to pay back the money in full that the government stupidly threw at them. If those in charge decide to grant AIG the permission to blow frickin’ million$ on their minions you can be sure an ugly contempt will further brew in the public masses. And the nation will likely not forget this vile debauchery come voting time. AIG is morally no better than the insane nurse who polluted patients just so she could get her fix.
I’ve often daydreamed lately…that if the politicians had ever decided there was an education crisis of prolific magnitude threatening this country…and had decided to spend a fraction on education of what they’ve minted for these pig f*ckers in our financial system. What would our nation look like? Or what if they spent it on medical research or medical coverage for all? What if the system had such a vested interest or cared so much for every individual person that their every potential could be put back to work for the greater good. But…alas. Humans are savage creatures. For all our gadgetry and science we still prowl on our own like dumb prehistoric thugs. For all the might in our governances the system is breaking down. In ways nobody saw coming. The leaders better get hip. There are too many swells of grief in motion here. Too many lives clinging to weak yarns of hope. Beltway “business as usual” won’t weather this front. The backs of states are breaking. This snake eating its own tail has to sever the cycle. Obama and his people better be right…because as things get worse you know more of the innocent will get ravaged in the fight to the finish. I have hope, but I’m pretty damn terrified at the energy stewing these days.
