    I am right there with you, Bro. I work in the insurance industry and my company is suffering and unfortunately a lot of friends are loosing there jobs, but AIG gets bailed out. Almost wish I could get my own bail out program.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but don't successful companies pay bonuses and stock dividends only when they make a profit? ... Ron

    "AIG declared earlier this month that it had suffered a loss of $61.7 billion for the fourth quarter of last year, the largest corporate loss in history"

    We (taxpayers) gave them 170 billion as a bailout.

    I may be wrong, but I think AIG handles the retirement accounts for the senate, presidents and such. Conflict of interest?

    AIG also does traveler's insurance supposedly....over the past few months they built a HUUUGGGEEE building for the head quarters of AIG Travelguard...I wonder where they got the money for that?

    Totally ridiculous. I'll untie there freaking hands. They must think taxpayers are stupid. They are suffering losses but still giving bonuses. My wife and I are currently making 40 percent less than last year. I think I will ask my boss for a bonus tomorrow!!!
