    Why are americans so outraged about the bonus money after AIG got the bail out? I tink they are entitled.

    But this is why we should all be outraged by AIG's bail out.

    More than half of that money went to banks overseas. That's right, to banks in other countries.

    All the "drama" of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, about the bonuses, are there to divert the attention to the real reason to be outraged.

    Question: Do we consider welfare checks a bailout? I do. So since we impose rules on companies we bail out, why not on recipients of welfare?

    Doesn't it make sense?
