    AIG Bail Out

    An e-mail from T. J. Birkenmeier (makes sense to me)   I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG. Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a "We Deserve It" Dividend.   To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000...

    In the face of great suffering,
