Tell AIG how you feel about them giving out bonuses.. then tell your congressmen.
Hi everyone here at CAPS. We all are trying to work to become better investors and share our ideas. I think many of us question the US govt. bailouts given to the banks and AIG. I think even more of us would agree that it makes no sense for this money to be used for bonuses, compensations, and fancy trips for some guys who think they are too important to find new jobs.
I am a hard working individual, I doubt that I will ever be rich, I may never own a house, and I am just trying to save up enough to be able to retire, support kids one day, and be able to pay for major medical emergencies.
I will most likely never see a bonus of $20,000 or 100,000, or 1,000,000 in my life. Will you?
I pay my taxes ever year... the people making these decisions on bailouts.. do they pay their taxes? (Ahem, Geitner...)
We should start participating in these decisions.

This is your money, your government, and your market system. You can sit back and let things fall as they will.. or you can get involved, make yourself heard. I'm writing to both AIG and my congressmen today. Why don't you all do the same?
