Oct 25th 2011 4:57PM Come on people. The fat cat bankers and wall street gurus didn't do too bad this time around either. Retirement funds and 401ks of the middle class got trashed by who? There is blame enough to go around.
Aug 16th 2010 4:15AM Richard Pryor used the N word in some of his comedy.
Jan 20th 2010 1:22AM MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAS ALREADY CENSUSED FARRAKHAN. DO YOU THINK THAT FARRAKHAN COULD HAVE THE TYPE OF EXPOSURE IN MAINSTREAM MEDIA THAT LIMBAUGH HAS? I DONT THINK SO. I AM NOT DEFENDING POSITIONS OF EITHER. JUST PRESENTING AN OBSERVABLE REALITY.
Mar 23rd 2009 4:27AM Yes. The matter should have been questioned. Did the bonuses come into question before or after the bailout money was turned over? This behavior by AIG is a results of the political philosophy of deregulation and hands off policy so the big boys can do as they please. I dont't have a problem with this so far as private capital is concerned. The judiciary can settle matters in the private sector. I become irate as a taxpayer when a handfull of individuals have the gall to show such diistain for our tax dollars at a time like this. This has been years in the making. One administration cannot be held totally responsible.
Mar 2nd 2009 12:32PM I was just going to ask the question "What are the political connections that AIG have?"
Feb 9th 2009 10:21PM Some remain blind and def to what has transpired. The fat cats on Wall Street got a windfall before Bush left office. What are they doing with it? They are giving themselves big bonuses and sitting on the rest. This trickle down nonesense does not put people to work in the immediate future and will only benefit the few in the short term. Lets put the as many of the unemployed back to work as soon as possible so they can start paying back into the system. Lets focus on the small local businesses and manufacturers first and encourage them to participate in the global economy. As a tax payer this is my position. Let the top corporate guys get rewarded with private capital, not government bailout money that the average working Joe need to help him or her get back on track. Taxpayer money and private capital should be used and viewed differently. I dont see how any Republican who has lost their Job can stomach what their party is doing to them in their current time of need. They dont give a damn about the little guy and they are getting worse buy the minute.
Dec 2nd 2008 9:24AM "Just give them the information so this can go away". No. It will not go away. I agree if it was a valid issue, it would have been exposed long before now. Let the accusers exhaust all means necessary and only present them with what they are seeking if ordered to do so through legal means. They do not deserve any voluntary consideration. There are far more serious issues this country have to deal with. Dispicable.
Apr 24th 2008 10:02AM Willie Lynch. Did he actually exist? He is more than likely a symbolic creation. In my opinion it does contain certain truths with respect to historical patterns of conditions and attitudes among not only African Americans, but what is happening in Africa today ie.,Africans inflicting pain and suffering on other Africans.
Feb 4th 2008 8:40AM Such is the outcome of worshiping false gods.
Jan 26th 2008 6:06AM I try not to patronize motels within 10 miles of any town or city limits. Also motels located near shopping malls on interstates seem to be o.k. if that is the only thing in the vacinity.
