Congressman Barney Frank, President Barack Obama, and other government officials are suddenly stunned, shocked, even outraged that AIG is spending millions of dollars on executive bonuses.
Few would argue that the entitled aristocracy running AIG aren’t pigs, but had those pigs been left alone, they would have perished or moved on, once they had trampled and devoured all their resources. You cannot teach a pig to sing or to be anything other than a pig.
To hand out billions of dollars of free money with no strings attached, then to feign shock and outrage when that money disappears, is the lowest, slimiest form of deception. What the hell did they think would happen? Am I angry at the pigs at AIG? No, actually. I’ll reserve my outrage for the people who raided my garden and tossed all my fresh vegetables into the trough.
