Angry AIG executive lets it fly

Well, it’s about time.  From the beginning, I have wondered what the “other side” is to the whole AIG bonus thing.  The witch hunt has been in full swing for some time, now, with pitchforks lifted and torches blazing.  Perhaps it has been so bad because of the need some feel to identify a persecutable enemy — not the best of human traits, but one of the most predictable.  (And, frankly, prophecy indicates that it is a trait that has even uglier days of expression ahead.)

And tales from the other side have, indeed, slowly leaked out.  Today, the resignation letter of Jake DeSantis was published in the New York Times, and I think it adds some information that should be considered by some with their hands wrapped around their pitchforks in a white-knuckle grip.

Here’s an article about the letter: “Dear AIG, I quit!”

Actually, I expected such sentiment to be expressed earlier.  Maybe it’s hard to feel free to speak your mind when your elected representatives are saying publicly that you should commit suicide.

Draw your own conclusions about Congress’ unconstitutional-in-spirit Bill of Attainder — the fact is that nothing is going to get this country on a right track and keep this country on a right track short of a real repentance and a turning to God.  Not Capitalism, not Socialism: repentance.  If you want to know more, read here.

  1. Sixty-eight percent of AIG’s campaign contributions went to the Democrats last year. The two biggest recipients were Christopher Dodd (D-Conn) and President Barrack Obama. Chris Dodd heads the committee that oversees the insurance industry.

    (I learned this from the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan watchdog group that tracks campaign money).

    Consequently, I find it a little ironic that the Democrats are shocked, just shocked by the mismanagement by AIG executives. They take turns expressing “outrage” in front of the TV cameras. I keep thinking, what a bunch of baloney!

    Hmmm….Democrats influenced by big business? I am so sure Republicans have NEVER been part of that. No, impossible..they are the righteous party.

  3. You are right, Brian — there is plenty of “character vacuum” to go around, and both sides of the aisle are equally blighted. Both parties are guilty of a horrible lack of integrity and seem selfish beyond belief (though, surely with some individual exceptions… surely?), and it is a sad state the the U.S. finds itself in: the need for leadership has rarely been greater, yet the lack of leadership at all levels has rarely been so shockingly stark.
