Your Bailout Dollars at Work

The folks at AIG are enjoying their $85,000,000,000 "bailout."

Check out this invoice of how they spent $440,000 of that money within a few days sending executives to a corporate retreat at a swanky California resort.

It was really nice of them (meaning "us") to throw in the $23,000 worth of spa treatments. Why, those poor suits were so stressed out by all of this, what else was there to do? What inhumane and uncaring soul would deny these poor people such basic human necessities as: "catered banquets, golf outings and visits to the resort's spa and salon"? Are these not the birthright of every American?

But the least they could do is send me one of the mints on their pillows. I don't know about you, but I didn't even get a "thank you" card. But maybe that's their way of being responsible and frugal with the taxpayer's money. Those stamps have really gone up.

Had enough yet?

They are asking for several billion more - this whole affair must be much more stressful on them than I thought.

If someone gave me several billion dollars, I might very well say, "Hey, that worked very well! Let's try again and see if we can get the same result."
