Happy St. Patrick's Day

How cool are these Obamas with the green-dyed White House fountain and the 3% Irish shtick?
Tonight the O'Bamas are hosting a St. Paddy's Day bash, and you just know U2 may show up, just to be with the cool people. Or maybe the Chieftains will perform.
At any rate, I just love how the Prez and Michelle take time to party every week. That takes some extraordinary energy, considering the mountain of shit Bush and Dick left behind for him to handle.

And not to change the subject, but AIG still expects to get another multi-billion dollar handout. I think Obama should just say no more dough to those pricks. This recent 'contractual bonus' bullshit is ridiculous. We taxpayers own AIG, and we oughtta sell it to Bernie Madoff's wife and walk away.

Cuomo has released the details of the 'bonuses' and it ain't pretty.

Seventy-three employees were paid more than $1 million in the newly minted bonuses at the insurance giant, American International Group, according to the New York attorney general, Andrew M. Cuomo.

Seventy-three employees owe the American taxpayers $73,000,000.
I hope Cuomo goes Gotti on these motherfuckers.

Dusty said...

That is a fine idea KZ ;p

HelenWheels said...

LOL @ Cuommo goin' Gotti.

That is disturbing news (bonuses).

Yep. The Obamas really are the epitome of "cool." What a complete and utter dork the shrub is in comparison.

i would love to see the asswipes who are getting these bonuses all lined up in front of tv cameras. one by one, they should be asked, 'are you willing to refuse this bonus? if not, tell us why you deserve it, and be specific.' if just one of them says no to the bonus, the others will either follow suit out of embarrassment or will look like even more of a selfish asshole.

then let andrew cuomo sic the ones with their hands still out.

Did you see "There's No One More Irish than Barack Obama" at Ramblings with Fran?

Check it out. Delightful.

Yes we can! Just say no - to socialism.

Lulu Maude said...

Socialism it ain't. I'm miserable, though... my retirement account is with AIG. I lose thousands each quarter, after a lifetime of hard work and saving.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Like the term "liberal," the term "socialism" has been demonized. Yet, threaten anyone's social security and watch them go apeshit.
Lulu, I am really sorry to hear that. Is there any way to pull out?

Socialism may be a relief compared to whatever the hell our new hybrid economic system is. At least in socialism the government owns and administers the means of production and distribution of goods. But its a bullshit economy when our government gives Billions to failed companies and yet has NO control of the companies.

And even if the gov got control, I'll bet people would still refuse to use the term socialism because they don't know what it means.
