    Did you use taxpayer money to purchase that pig? If so then I am sure the American people will gladly demand that you give it back=).

    Hey Elliot,

    While driving my car today over on the other side of the world here in little New Zealand, I was surprised to hear your city “Burbank” mention on the radio. It was regarding Obama appearing on the John Lennon’s Show which will be recorded at the NBC’s Studio. 🙂

    What if you have a few good names and a good plan, but you don’t have the time/money or expertise to work the plan?

    Perhaps not quite as IConic as the since auctioned ENRON sign, but its more IRonic.

      @Borat, I believe Rosco meant the Jay Leno show – not John Lennon. BTW, my best to your sister.

    AIG has to be the only business in the world where the owners are calling their business greedy. Another reason the government (80% owners) should not own anything. We the people are confused.

    Elliot, that piggy bank can probably pull in $1000 in bidding on ebay. You think?

    What cracks me up is that the govt is giving money to people who ALREADY were “working” the system that runs the world economy for their own “quick greed plundering”. Then we expect that these notorious and quite daring greedmongers from using this money to continue to further their nefarious deeds. Does anyone really think that after Enron, where NOBODY went to jail *maybe one guy*, that ripping off billions would put them in jail?

    I read a story about the “three strikes law” in calif a few months back where a guy stole pizza off a picnic table, got caught, arrested, and because he had two prior felony convictions, received a LIFE SENTENCE. I’ll be his crimes netted him no more than a few thousand dollars.

    Now, move that to white collar asswipes who scam millions, but because they dress nice, have a lot of friends and influential connections… maybe they’ll be indicted, maybe not.

    Remember, Dick Cheney, the ultimate evil corporate crony, is so brazen he’s still commenting about Obama’s attempt to bring America back to the 21st Century and out of the torture age.

    Cheney? Still talking? Is everyone so scared of this evil scourge that they won’t follow up on pinning him down on his involvement with Iraq and how his previous company, Halliburton, and their subsideraries got no-bid contracts to basically move into Iraq and set up shop… Just the “image” of unethical behavior should have been enough to teach Cheney proper management of our country’s interests, except Cheney disappeared for years inside his secret cave, eating the entrails of small children.

    I think history will show Cheney as the most destructive executive in our govt …and basically, a bloated soul-less insider who had inside info on some important peoepl, who didn’t want any trouble from Cheney’s still lingering CIA, NSA and even FBI influence. Everyone has skeletons… Cheney had other people’s skeletons in HIS closet, so he could play with them and laff…
