Today Acorn is taking their people by bus to the homes of the AIG execs. It was bad enough when the lawmakers tried to outrage each other when they were totally aware of everything for a very long time. Perhaps the buses might want to visit Dodd's, Obamas, McCains, Rangels and a whole bunch of other people who took campaign funds from AIG-and don't forget Geithner who masterminded the first TARP as then head of the NY Federal Reserve. Some child is going to get hurt and then those in power can blame each other for that. Again good luck on getting any private folks to partner with government when Obama will intrude on all businesses regardless of whether they took TARP money or not. Whether people want to acknowledge it or not this is a class war mentality- Linda

The death threats to AIG execs and their families is further proof.

ACORN scares me. I don't think they were created for that.

Heads have been in the sand for too long.

Association for Community Reform Now They were one of the main groups recruiting voters for Obama and are currently under investigation for fraudulent voter registration in several states. Seems they have now been recruited to go door to door for the 2010 census. Sure does look like a class war brewing when you couple things like these bus trips with the mantra of main street not wall street. Will be all telling to see how much government intrudes on any not just TARP recipients in determining salaries and bonuses-in some cases by the nature of what they do called commissions. That news came out over the weekend. The mentality seems to be hate or strongly dislike anyone no matter if they have done nothing wrong who makes more money than average and make them pass it around-we will see- Linda

Way over the top. Even worse than the intrusive press.

It always astonishes me, the ferocity with which Americans defend
the right of the unscrupulous and untalented to amass huge fortunes
at the expense of the rest of the population.( e.g Paris Hilton and Donald Trump)

Until the Gold Standard was "retired" there was a limited amount of cash
to be shared between the whole population. There was oversight and ethical
standards Then all of a sudden the Bush Government decided to print
uncontrolled amounts of money, and remove the long-standing legal controls.
Now Wall Street is falling like a house of cards.
Are there ostriches in America????

What about Rosie O'Donald, and where does one go to get a bus driver's license, anyway?

Rowlanda, I don't think anyone here is defending the AIG execs. Many of us are outraged at the disgusting tactics of ACORN.

Yes, everyone knows hat the bonuses were outrageous but no more outrageous than the "phony outrage" expressed by those who had known about them for a very long time and then called for a list of the names of the execs. It looked awfully fishy when folks like Dodd, Obama, Schumer, McCain and many more lawmakers had taken vast sums from AIG for their campaigns joined the chorus. Then that ACORN group showed up by bus at their homes. Some of those folks it has been divulged from the voter fraud thing have felony records and now they are outside folks homes threatening them-this does not even address the fact of that same group being recruited to go door to d ooe foer the census. They had better not come to my door!! Linda

Sorry Penn....I never watch any of those "reality shows"

They are not about corporate greed....they're about
out-of-work actors etc.
