I think it is ridiculous that Congress (House)  is passing a law to tax the bonuses of the AIG crooks.  It is my understanding that it is illegal to do so; to target individuals retroactively for their (Congress's) mistakes.

Congress knew it was happening before it occurred & changed the language in the Porkulus bill to allow it.  Only Congress would do something this stupid!  I am outraged that we are paying the bonuses but who would not accept them (bonuses) if offered.  One extremely corrupt politician (MA congressman) wants to publish the bonus-ees addresses; even though he kept Fanny Mae & Freddie Mac going & forced (passed legislation) banks to loan to uncredit-worthy people.

It amazes me that people keep electing these fools (you can't blame me everyone that I voted for did not get elected)!

Politicians are like diapers. They both need changing regularly and for the same reason.

There are many men of principle in both parties in America, but there is no party of principle. ~Alexis de Tocqueville

We'd all like to vote for the best man, but he's never a candidate. ~Frank McKinney "Kin" Hubbard

Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber. ~Plato

Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where they is no river. ~Nikita Khrushchev

bonus (n) a payment or gift added to what is usual or expected, in particular  • an amount of money added to wages on a seasonal basis, esp. as a reward for good performance • something welcome and often unexpected that accompanies and enhances something that is itself good : good weather is an added bonus but the real appeal is the landscape.
ORIGIN late 18th cent. (probably originally London stock-exchange slang): from Latin bonus (masculine) ‘good,’ used in place of bonum (neuter) ‘good, good thing.’ Compare with boon
