Early St. Patrick's Day Gift

It is still not St. Patrick's Day yet. For all of you who drank too much over the weekend the real day is tomorrow. You get a couple of chances to ruin your liver this week.

The executives at AIG Insurance got their St. Patrick's Day gift early. By the way the person who decided to go ahead with the bonuses was appointed by former President George W. Bush. Current President Obama spoke to him about how bad that made everyone look and the Bush appointee said that he had to do it because he would get sued if he did not.

The highest bonus was $6 million.

I don't think we should live our lives based on whether or not we might get sued. As an elected official I was sued hundreds of times for millions of dollars and that never made any difference about how I decided an issue. By the way no one who ever sued me ever won anything.

Me and the rest of the world are very upset with former President Bush and his appointee. g
