What Does AIG Really Stand For?

Just weeks ago, financial company AIG got a huge financial bailout package from the federal government. The company got the kind of help that its selfish executives have opposed for ordinary working Americans. Now, to really run it in, AIG has come back to the government and declared that it screwed up again, squandered the last round of government assistance, and now needs more money.

The Bush Administration has agreed to their demands. The total government assistance to AIG now totals 150 billion dollars.

AIG needs the money, or the whole American economy will fall apart? How many times are we supposed to fall for that line? But, okay, fine – I’ll assent to the demand, on one condition: AIG, the American International Group can get the money it wants, so long as it changes the words that make up its acronym. AIG needs to be forced to change its name.

How about Arrogant Ignorant Greedheads? Or, how about renaming the company Apparently Investors Gullible? Maybe Again Idiots Give?

    How DARE these yahoo’s ask and again recieve a hand out from the government just to turn around and dish out BONUS CHECKS to themselves. I am incensed with their ENTITLEMENT attitude. We the people have no jobs, oil for our homes ( if it hasn’t been repo by the banks ),and so meny more issues we deal with and they give themselves a bonus ! Screw that and them, put them all away with Madoff. There all thieves !!!!

  • I think this is a cover up so bush can get out of all the laws he broke even sending f.e.m.a a specail task force over to new orleans needed live data for his boot camp alot of people know every thing about bush and his boot camps so we believe this is a cover up so bush can get out of all the trouble he cost americans…

  • I would like to add that president bush sr. worked with the cubans and we went to Iran to help Iran fight against the russians now we are at war with them crazy..

  • Let me just add I think we have the best president now Barack Obama thank the gods to send us a gift from above and I know he has alot to clean up a big mess I wish we would stay as president forever…

  • I like to add some other stuff I don’t judge or take sides because I know its wrong but here is a great story let me tell you about a small town thats on the map in the news trying to make proffit but in a bad way this town is very crooked really bad they judge a man sole or proffit on his spirit here they judge people on socail secirty trying to make a great future for them self like if they go to college they don’t like that they judge you for that even police officer judge you because they belive your a criminal you should never have a life no matter what you can’t even change your live around to make a bright future for your self even if a person was plant in bad sowel he can still change into a good person or if the sowel was good and the person went bad he still has a chance to change into a great person but in this town state of Iowa town city clinton they judge you here bad and discriminat against you here they believe your stealing stuff from them you live you all your live but they bring new people into this town and try to push you out even the police station is corrupted why let me tell you why say if a person turned him self into the police for breaking the law you know what they do they rush you into stuff not to help you but to hurt you see a person could have avoided this by going to see a psychologist and none of this would have happen what you say like stuff putting into the press letting the community hurt and discriminat a person they do this alot in clinton,Iowa they hire wrong people here so they can get rich off of a person here so you see its every where this could be happening..

  • I have the perfect system I really do I believe nuns should be teachers and nurses you see they don’t judge no one at all they keep things to them self and police woman should not be allowed to judge sex ofenders thats still pass judgement they suspose to up hold the law the law should never charge no 1 of any crimes until they no for sure and they should help a person 1st then find out what the problem is then charge them if it can’t be fixed and neighbors should help neighbors no matter what don’t pass no judgement…

    thanks for the blog, very interesting prespective, i still think b is a soft tyranny tho

    Admin Alert: This comment is an attempted part of a Google Bomb project on the phrase soft tyranny – and a pretty stupid one too, given that there’s an automatic rel=”nofollow” on WordPress comments that prevents these comments from adding to the Google juice on this phrase.

    A.I.G. stands for American I.G. Nazi Germany’s I.G. Farben was the first “I.G.”, and was founded by the Rothschilds in 1925 as Interessen Gemeinschaft Farbeindustrie Aktien gesellschaft, usually known as I.G.Farben, which simply meant “The Cartel”. Henry Ford set up a German branch of Ford Motor Company and 40% of the stock was purchased by I.G. Farben. I.G. Farben then established an American subsidiary, called American I.G., in cooperation with the Rockefeller’s Standard Oil of New Jersey. (from Murder By Injection, Eustace Mullins, 1988)
