Comments: F*ck, Yeah!

I am particularly appalled by Rep Barney Frank (D-MA) call for "the names" of those receiving bonuses, and his lack of guarantee of confidentiality (presumably so that the names can be leaked to the press for the ritual public flogging).

The call of "We own 80% of the company (AIG),its OUR money, and we're going to get it". This is the logical extension of the Citibank Corp Jet flap where Rahm Emmanuel calls Citi and says "Fix It".

This is FAR worse than whether or not AIG employees deserve bonus. The larger issue is the Congress' assault on private enterprise.
