Dear AIG Execs

http://www.abcnews.go.com/Blotter/Story?id=5973452&page=2

You make me sick. Do you realize that there are people who are struggling to even find a job? People who WANT to work? Imagine what more than $400,000 could have done had you stopped thinking of yourselves for one minute and put it towards people who would like to feed their families this week. What about the people who are still trying to clean up after a hurricane? What about the small business owners who are fighting tooth and nail not to go under because there's no credit to be had now? If you can sleep well at night, you're disgusting excuses for human beings.

Oh, and one of my dear friends who is being hugely screwed by the current state of the economy would like her fancy pedicure, too, thanks. It's the least you could do, really.

Thank you so much for this. I was so enraged I could hardly breathe when I read that article.

I had to decide between gas to get to work and food for my child two weeks ago. This kind of excess on our dime makes me want to cry.

This country needs to wake up and realize that while "change" is wanted, it's a revolution that is needed and should be demended! Every single person should be held accountable for their part in screwing the working class.

I really think you're being way too hard on these guys. They're going through tough times and maybe they just needed to relax. It's really stressful being in the industry they're in right now, after all. Cut them some slack. Geeeez. And it's not like they caused the hurricane or anything. COME ON! Can't anyone have any fun any more? All this talk about bad economy this, no credit that, blah blah blah great depression. No wonder they needed a retreat. CAN'T YOU SEE THAT WOMAN?

Just kidding. They should all be fired, bunch of greedy asses.
