I think Bush, Cheney and Paulson all need to resign. Shame on them and everyone else responsible for this, now global, mess. They should all be prosecuted, possibly even be named in a civil suit, as they have compromised our national security. Their poor leadership and outright greed have driven our economy into the ground. Deregulation, my foot! I honestly can NOT believe anyone who purposefully removes protective regulations put in place after the Stock Market Crash of 1929, to prevent it from happening again, had no clue that this would occur. So, idiocy or premeditation, they all need to resign and be held responsible!
And now AIG gets another bailout right after they take a bunch of insurance agents on a junket to an elite Southern California golf resort and spa. They did this to the tune of over $400,000 for things such as hotel rooms, massages and manicures! While the rest of us are struggling, the money for their junket was taken straight out of our meager pockets through the first AIG bailout! This gets more and more ridiculous and outrageous! When are they going to give the taxpayer a bailout? Maybe we could take the money for our bailout from the bank accounts and financial holdings of the executives responsible. After all, they've made billions of dollars at our expense!
