According to an article in The New York Times, "officials" were aware that American International Group (AIG),was slated to hand out a whopping $165,000 million in bonuses to executives and employees of the failing company, out of the $173.3 billion dollars in taxpayer money that was essentially given to them in the recent bailout package.

In an article for Human, Connie Hair, a freelance writer for the magazine reported that at a press conference on Thursday (19 March 2009), she asked House Republican leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) about the efforts of the Republicans to subpoena AIG and Geithner records and their communications in relationship to this scandal. Also, due to the fact that Democrat Sen. Chris Dodd and then Sen. Barack Obama were the two largest recipients of AIG campaign cash last year, she asked if there was any evidence of a quid pro quo discovered yet. Boehner's answer to Ms. Hair was, “That’s what we’re trying to find out.”

So, we know that Geithner has been involved right from the start because he was heavily involved in the Bush-era AIG bail-out. Then we have Ben Bernanke who was Fed. chair and he had to know which companies were schedules to receive bonuses--that was his job. Then, Sen. Dodd and the then Sen. Obama, who were receiving very sizable campaign contributions made sure that their buddies were being protected--then and now. And of course we mustn't forget David Axelrod, who was Obama's advisor, and last by certainly not last, nor is he even least, everyone's favorite bulldog, Rahm Emanuel, Obama's Chief of Staff.

It seems that no matter where we look, Obama has surrounded himself with dishonest people and he's also engaged in dishonest dealings. That's nothing new. We tried desperately to warn the American people, but they were in love, so it all fell on deaf ears.

Furthermore, Obama's appointees all seem to have some sort of problem paying their taxes (Obama calls them: honest mistakes") or else they seem misappropriate funds (Obama calls them: "honest mistakes," too.) Somehow, I don't think that if my husband and I forgot to pay our taxes, that the IRS would think it was an honest mistake, even if it was. Remember what Obama tried to do to "Joe, the Plumber?"

Naturally, being the "good guy" that Obama would like us to think he is (he's the guy that surrounds himself with thugs, thieves, liars, and people that hate whites, this country and the Constitution), he's going to take the blame (the "buck stops here," just like Pres. Truman, right, Obama?), but accepting the blame is just not going to cut it this time. It won't solve the problem, and we already knew he was to blame, anyway!

They used to slice out the tongue of the prevaricator, in days of yore, but that is so uncivilized! Now, a spanking is considered too violent by some people. I think the best thing to do is let the Lord handle it. "Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord." Romans 12:19

Until next time...stay safe, stay well, and may God bless you all.
