More Disturbing Than AIG Bonuses

While Obama and Geithner distract our attention with the bailout of evil bankers and robber barons, the firing of the GM CEO by Obama through personal fiat, and bonuses paid by companies like AIG, guess who is paying out bonuses business as usual?

The operation getting the biggest taxpayer subsidy of all - the federal government - pays bonuses to its employees too. This year it plans to hand out about $1.6 billion of bonuses, despite running more than $1 trillion in the red.
Feel better now that government is taking care of lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor?

The life of Indigo Red is full of adventure. Tune in next time for the Further Adventures of Indigo Red.

"Feel better?" Nope!

The idea of any government taking over my life is a nightmare, and the Obama administration is a living nightmare for sure.
