"BONZAI!!!!":
Senator suggests AIG execs should kill themselves

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley suggested that AIG executives should take a Japanese approach toward accepting responsibility for the collapse of the insurance giant by resigning or killing themselves.

Them's some pretty harsh words there, sport. But I like them.

Bonuses? With OUR FUCKING MONEY!?!? For running a company into the ground?

Contract or no, these assholes should be fired with no 'Golden Parachute'. The citizens of the U.S. are are basically the stockholders now, and I as a stockholder, believe that if these dip-shits take any bonus money they deserve jail time for defrauding the government.

Either that or their house(s) and car(s) should be repossessed. I would never, NEVER, advocate vandalism or arson, but someone happened to do that instead, I wouldn't rather they didn't get prosecuted for doing it.

Update: Silly me. The fucking dems had already written a fucking bonus exemption clause into the fucking thing when the fucking Commander in Chief (good gawd - am I ever glad he ain't my boss) signed the fucker into fucking law.

My understanding it that these are retention bonuses. As in a contractual obligation by the company to pay a bonus to employees if they will stay with the company. So, you're off-base on this one. A contract is a contract and this was already in writing before the bail-out money came into play.

The Libtards are making this out to be unwarranted performance bonuses because they need a dog and pony show to keep our minds off of the fact that they're pissing away our money on socialist programs.

You are correct about the executive pay exception.

Makes it that much easier then. Fire them now and do away with the bonuses.

It's also my understanding that some who received bonuses no longer work for said company. So much for retention bonuses, eh? There's just so much bullshit to wade through we'll never know how bad things REALLY are.

Yeah, all it is is a cluster fuck. Trying to save face with an "Arbitrary Income Tax Assessment".
