So now we live in a socialist state?
"As the company worked during the weekend of September 12 to increase its finances, AIG refused a capital infusion offer from a group of private equity firms led by J.C. Flowers & Co. because an option in the offer would have given the firms control of the company....AIG Chief Executive Robert Willumstad took the unusual step of asking New York Federal Reserve President Timothy Geithner if the Fed would guarantee some asset sales. AIG has made an unprecedented approach to the Federal Reserve seeking $40 billion in short-term financing, the New York Times said."
Fucking cowards. Loving the free market when it's free, crying to Big Brutha as soon as their shit starts to stink. Although, the irony is sweet that the anti-commie-pinko-hippie brigade is at the forefront of this socialism revival.
