Here's a nifty way to get back at AIG


Just google "AIG insurance" and go to town.

Just think if all the bubble blogs put this up today.

A little immature anarchy and disruption can be fun sometimes.

Here's another one - call AIG for a quote, and tell 'em your name is Chris Dodd. Say you want the works.

Anyone up for defacing realtor "Open House" signs this morning?

Enjoy the video. I love the you tube and the googles. Hey, is this one of you?

The farce of taxpayer money going to pay for the bonuses of the failed AIG company shows how rotten and useless the system is. By 'the system' I am referring to the system of government that America has and along with it the pseudo-capitalist system America has adopted. This report of the bonuses is a symptom of the sickness of the system. Why be surprised? We should expect it. We should see more and more absurdities like this. They are becoming commonplace. Alice in Wonderland has nothing on the surreal USA. Wonderland is a rational place when compared with the joke the USA has become.

If everyone hits the links and causes AIG to owe Google, since we now own AIG, isn't that the same thing as screwing ourselves?

The real joke is everybody all worked up over bonuses 1/1000th of the $170 Billion bailout to this company.

Any unease about the other $169.83 Billion folks?

The Google isn't getting $8 per click. Try something more like 8 cents.

On things like insurance, CPC for the advertiser is big - $10 or so I'd bet, since their profits are so massive if they convert

10 clicks and you just billed 'em $100

Te video ends at 3:00 min., cuts out the part about pissing off the local government. What's up?

i previously posted that everyone should call up AIG investor services (well, the 60% of us who pay taxes) and request an annual report be mailed to you as we are all investors in AIG now.

Good point! What matters is $169 billions they took with no light at the end of the tunnel.

Plus the $1.1 TRILLIONS we are printing with 300 Billions already marked for buybacks and the rest no one knows where it going yet...
My guess it is going directly to calm China's worries...

Also, would google pay back the US taxpayer for all these clicks.

My take is to liquidate all AIG assets and let it go bankrupt.

WHEN the White House announced last week that President Barack Obama will be returning to the nation’s television screens on Tuesday for a prime-time press conference that will postpone the latest episode of American Idol - the talent show watched by 25m viewers - fans of the programme were quick to respond.

“Stop, please stop, Mr O, we can’t take much more,” one angry viewer wrote on an Idol-related website. “Not again!” complained another. “It’s the same speech he’s been giving for the past year.”

AIG is not one of the advertisers on that google search. None have the TLD Clicking is just hosing the idiots who have linked sub-domains with AIG.

And google gets pennies per click, not dollars.

Its a nice sentiment, but AIG needs to be burned to the ground; along with Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and the Federal Reserve.

Now THAT would provide satisfaction and relief!

And arrest Joseph Cassano!
