Is It Safe Yet?

Former Vice-President Dick Cheney was shopping his usual blather about on ABC's This Week, blaming the entire economic mess on the Democrats. Oh, and the budget deficit isn't the fault of the Bush Administration, either - it's because we had 9/11, two wars, and Hurricane Katrina. Oh, and by changing our policies in Iraq, Afghanistan, and domestically, we're inviting another terrorist attack!

Only a very sick individual would sit there on national television and essentially express the hope that there would be another attack on American soil so as to validate their own illegal actions.


AIG is paying out over %150 million in bonuses to their executives, despite going bankrupt and having to take bailout monies to remain solvent. Their excuse is that the bonuses are contractually guaranteed, and, well, the government can't just break a contract, *pfffffackbbbbbtt*.

These executives have contracts that cover bonuses even when they're party to the systematic failure of the banking industry? Really? I seem to recall some guy named Reagan busting the contracts of a bunch of air traffic controllers.

Secondly, whatever happened to that bit of legislation in the wake of the Enron Scandal that required CEO's to sign off on their companies' financial reports? Aren't they supposed to be accountable?
