Aloha Friday


Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response
It's a loaded question this week........
What do you think about AIG?
I am pretty sure that I need blood pressure medicine because of them. Their bonus alone could buy HUNDREDS of my home over and over. It is true than I enjoy a good deal but it is also true that I clip coupons and go through the Sunday flyers to match my coupons with sales because my family has to watch every dollar, while they are getting outrageous bonuses AND they have my taxpayer money on top of that. There is something seriously wrong going on here. AIG can suck it as far as I am concerned!!! There, I feel better!!!!

I think that the top dogs in some of these companies just don't have any idea of what is happening in life.

It is one of those you just don't want to think about because it makes you sick. I understand why the government had to bail them out but it still ticks me off that they continue to pass out bonuses.

Jaime said...

it generally makes me sick. but i like the government's response of getting almost all of it back through taxes!

Alicia said...

I think its all a load of crap. I think they should give all of the bonuses back and be repremanded for dispursing them...just my opionion though.

They're thieves!! Take from the poor and give to the rich! I wanna be bailed out!

I think it is terrible I use to work for a company that made us count paper clips yet the top execs would cash in millions in stock options to buy extra homes.

Brandi said...

It makes me a little PO'd!

I think that its very crappy to have all of that money of ours, go to waste! It was supposed to help them in a sense, help us (or people who use their company) not to benefit themselves...

Hopefully they will get some of the money back...at least that's what I think they were talking about...I only hear bits and pieces of the news cause Marlee is awake at that time!

It's sad don't you think, Now they are going to have to pay 90 percent taxes on their bonus.

I feel sorry for those Big Losers. They may be rich in $$$, but overall they are extremely below being dirt poor in character!!

They are obviously very selfish and self absorbed. Not the kind of people I want to associate with.

I would love it if one of those big bonus takers took the $$$$ and divided it amongst the people that lost so much. I am sure that not one of them will.

But I am glad to say that I know that they will be judged at Christ's seat and I don't have to judge them.

I can be extremely disappointed in their actions, but because I don't know their side of the story.......
Hard to believe that they could have felt that taking the grossly huge bonuses would be the right thing to do.........

Thanks.
