I Got Yer Bonus Check Right HERE..

I've thought about this whole AIG mess.

While I can't for the life of me fathom how anyone of good conscience would be able to accept 'Bonus' money for perpetrating a disgraceful financial debacle of this magnitude,I do understand that a contract is a contract,and we are obliged to live up to our end.

In an effort to reconcile the letter of the law,with the spirit of the law,..I've decided we should just bite the bullet,and pay them exactly what they've earned.


..I can live with that.

Those fuckers are laughing so hard at everyone. I bet most of their money is going to go for protection from Joe the taxpayer.

Sage- If they wanted to go straightaway and hang themselves,I'd be OK with that too.

I think you are being far too generous.

Thirty pieces of silver sound just right for the betrayers.

That's hilarious, Sling! I bet you could get that published in some newspaper.

I just think this is very creative--good work! *smiles*

Well..this is a great piece..but I have to tell you..still, still.... your new signature..every time I see it..well, it brings a smile to my face,
So, in a totally unrelated matter : Sling, thanks!

Dirty rotten bastards. Good luck finding a bank solvent enough to cash it.

Citizen- I just think they should get what they've got coming to them.

Mom- I understand it's the going rate.

Miss HP- Thanks kid!..Do they still print newspapers?

austexgrl- I like it too.
It makes things all official and stuff.

Thinker- I'm sure the 'Best and brightest' can find an appropriate place to 'deposit' it.

Sadly that bunch of crooks won't follow Judas' example: return the money in shame and go hang themselves!

it all just pisses me off.

 
At 10:15 AM , Blogger Sling said...

Willym- Here's what really boggles my mind.
Not one of these guys has come forward and said,'I can't,in good conecience,accept this money..Not when my country is in such dire straights'

Is it that naive of me to just assume that someone has a moral center?

They're watching the news every day,listening to the truth of our indignation,and remain unmoved.

Lost- Me too kid..I would like to know why,if these people figure they deserve this money,we haven't seen their names published?

NOTE: AIG's CEO Liddy just told Congress that there are some employees that have offered to return 100% of their bonuses..Carry on.

 
At 1:03 PM , Blogger Doralong said...

I think the making a special tax just for those rat bastards and taxing the bonus money at 100% is the perfect solution. However, like you, I'm fine with them just hanging themselves.

 
At 1:21 PM , Blogger John said...

Oh, that is too good.

 
At 5:22 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Doralong- I'm not clear on how ex post facto considerations might preclude taxing bonuses that are already paid out..I'm kinda leaning with Barney Frank's idea of suing them,as major stockholders,to return the money on the grounds of non-performance.
..or hanging.

John- I kinda liked it. :)

fecking buttroys!

 
At 9:29 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Yellerdawg- ..I'm adding that to the label.

 
At 10:58 PM , Blogger Lorraine said...

'Course...you know what happens after they cash that check, right?

And I say, hangin's too good fer 'em!

 
At 10:58 PM , Blogger Lorraine said...

Ok, and I went there without reading anyone else's comments and your very damn first response was about hanging.

Never mind.

is it true that liddy has been trying to kiss obama?

 
At 11:05 AM , Blogger rosemary said...

and they don't want to release their names....piano strings and all. they should be tared and feathered in a public place.

 
At 11:32 AM , Blogger Sling said...

Rainey- TOO LATE!..I'm leaving your blogger faux pas up there for all to see! AHAHAHA!
..I'm just jealous 'cause you get to go see JP.

Billy P.- That's just a vicious rumor!
I'm sorry I ever started it.

Rosie- I loved the way Barney Frank handled his request for the names.
Like that line in 'Game Show'.
'You'll recognize it,..it will look very much like a subpeona'..

There is no justice on earth for these mongrels..."the meek inherit the earth"...i don't think so. Maybe we have to wait till the great beyond to see "the mighty brought low"

Its a brilliant cheque...just brilliant

Middle Child- I think that those mighty types that chose to lay up their treasures on Earth,will be in for a huge fall when they realize they should have been laying them up in Heaven instead.
