Taking the Bait on AIG: The ABC’s of Fury

Bus tours of AIG execs homes to foment anger and backlash against the entirely wrong group of people? Nice.

Congratulations, Congress and President Obama — most people are taking the bait.

The government’s plan is brilliant in its conception and execution. Spend years and years doctoring the educational system in the country so people are no longer able to distinguish their ass from a hole in the ground, and people will believe whatever they’re told, provided it come from the mouths of their life-long caretakers.

Here’s the AIG “scandal” in simple language, with the government starring as person “A,” you the taxpayer are person “B” and AIG is person “C”:

A stole B’s money, kept most of it, and gave the rest to C.

C was frivolous with the money, so B told A to be furious with C for misusing his money.

Then B forgot that, due to numerous factors (including mass confusion and that his childhood education just happened to be provided by A) that the trouble with C wouldn’t have happened if A hadn’t stolen B’s money in the first place.

If any intimidating “bus tours” are to take place, let them be at of the homes of members of Congress who successfully deflect a hate they created toward private citizens and get so many people to take the bait. If that’s not evil, I don’t know what is.
