The Outrage Poseurs

The AIG bonuses are an outrage given that AIG should be in bankruptcy, but I am really sick of these outrage poseurs.

There are a lot of bad messages being passed along with this outrage, such as that government should be involved somehow in micro-managing salaries, bonuses etc. When the real lesson should be that politicians are willing to lock up and throw away the key on these second tier thieves, but don't say word about the billion dollar thefts of Hank Paulson, Goldman Sachs and the like.

I'll be impressed with Schumer when he taxes Goldman Sachs money AND gives it back to the tax payer. Otherwise, I consider him as big a con as the rest of them.
