I kiud of agree with Bill Maher, when he says he worried about, “”the chance for people to take horrible action. ” Except that Maher is worried about some hypothhetical. When in the real world, nutcases are being deliberately enraged. New York Magazine :
The Connecticut Working Families Party this weekend has organized a bus store that will make stops at Wilton, Connecticut, AIG office as well as the security-patrolled homes of AIG execs who are fearing for their lives.
“We’re going to be peaceful and lawful in everything we do,” said Jon Green, the director of Connecticut Working Families. “I know there’s a lot of anger and a lot of rage about what’s happened. We’re not looking to foment that unnecessarily, but what we want to do is give folks in Bridgeport and Hartford and other parts of Connecticut who are struggling and losing their homes and their jobs and their health insurance an opportunity to see what kinds of lifestyle billions of dollars in credit-default swaps can buy

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – The bus pulled up at a quiet intersection on Saturday, just another chilly afternoon here in one of the wealthiest counties in America, where the median household income is $78,353 and where, a short walk up the street, an A.I.G executive lives.
A pastor whose sister-in-law is facing foreclosure, a recently laid off worker at a steel mill and a few of their colleagues walked up the residential street. A national and international press corps numbering about 50 hovered around them.
The members of the mob may well be an all beef patty short of a Happy Meal, and they being egged on by the Obama administration in a deparate attempt to hide their gross incompetence. Barack Obama signed the legislation, Porkulus, which had language inserted by his administration designed to protect the AIG bonuses. Now having protected the bonuses, BO is now egging the mob on. So will be held accountable when the m0b is driven into a mad frenzy? Will BO attempt pawn the blame off on to Dubya or Rush? Will the reprobate, Eric Holder, investage the mob violence as a hate crime?
