CEO's still at it...

AIG reportedly spent around $86,000 on an English hunting trip for a handful of executives. Here's the article.

They justified it by saying it was being planned well before the billion dollar federal reserve loan was given by the government for the Insurance company to stay afloat. To me, that's like a teenager being grounded the week of prom, then purchases her dress and goes anyway.

Do you see this happening with other bailed out companies once the Big Bailout is enforced?

  • This is why the numbnuts that caused the problems in the first place, should not have been put in charge of the bailout. They screwed up, so then we handed them basically a blank check and said "ok fix it". Yeah like they know how to fix it.

  • AHHH... that pisses me off!! I can barely pay my bills- living paycheck to paycheck! Even if I knew that I could take a trip and make the AMerican people foot the bill, I would never do it. The more money that lines thier pockets the more clouded thier morals get!
