    AIG is the newest name to be linked with Greece as the bailed out insurer has emerged as a source of CDS (Atlas note: CDS = credit-default swap) on the troubled state.

    Two reports this weekend, both based on a German newspaper article, cited the U.S. government owned firm as a key supplier of CDS on Greek debt.

    This could pull the U.S. into the Greek bailout as a means of protecting these firm's assets.

    So, conspiracy-theory time...

    Did those in DC who decided that we American taxpayers just had to rescue AIG anticipate this from the start of the AIG rescue???

    The real question is did they anticipate the anticipation, and did the anticipate YOU guessing they might have anticipated the anticipation?

    You may have missed something. AIG is on the hook for the CDS that were purchased on their debt. It isn't about bailing out Greece, its about paying out on the contracts that pay out if Greece defaults on its debt......

    We just went through like 18 months of this miserable dance????????

    If the AIG execs give back their hefty Xmas bonuses, Greece will be well funded.

    I think the average american taxpayer is sick of hearing about AIG.

    If we have to go through another round with them, especially after the shennanagins they tried to pull with taxpayer money last time, a lot of people are going to be irate enough to cause some politicians their jobs.

    AIG is your government and your government is AIG.

    They won't be allowed to fail -- and that will be really, really bad.

    If they were allowed to fail -- that would be really, really bad.

    Consider the current gang in power, their ambition may be to destroy free market capitalism by bankrupting the USA.

    Oh, it most definitely is.

    Then they can bring about the wholesale change they have planned for the last 100 years.

    I have seen and heard of this scene many times, but no one seems to say WHY would these Powers want to destroy free market, or bankrupt the USA ??

    To what end ? ?

    What do the "Theys: have to gain by doing that ??

    Not single-ing you out, Fox, not at all....just wonder why....

    One more thing I wonder : When the banks couldn't rape us any more on credit cards, it seems "They" pulled their ads off the T.V., and as a slap to everyone, "They" decide to cancel millions of card holders cards, and now that the new laws concerning credit rates go into effect, "They" ultimately raised their rates, and made credit nearly extinct....

    I don't recognize this new world anymore....

    I am out ....:cool:

    To provide them with an opportunity to bring about complete structural change. Liberty is not possible without economic liberty.

    "They" is not so much a person as it is a philosophy......global elites who believe that man is not capable of managing himself or his resources want control of those resources and that man because they know better how to utilize them. They believe that things are better run by a select few. They also believe that man can be perfected (Godless). Along the way, some people will have to be liquidated (eugenics, genocide, Mao, Stalin, Hitler, abortion) to cleans the genepool and make more resources available for the worthy humans.

    Along the way they skew things, little by little, to cultivate a culture of useful idiots......and it becomes perpetual motion only with ever so slightly larger swings of the pendulum. We have useful idiots right here on GT that rear their heads from time to time. Your average everyday Obama supporter is a useful idiot. The majority of the mainstream media are useful idiots. Some Ivy league professors, the leaders of various nations, UN officials, George Soros, folks that head the various Progressive thinktanks.....they're the elite.

    This movement started around the turn of the 20th century. Go back and start reading about Woodrow Wilson and the various events around the turn of the century. You think its pure coincidence that the Federal Reserve, the 16th, 17th and 18th amendments were all ratified between 1909 and 1917?

    They are the people that made Che Guevarra into an iconic pop-culture symbol.

    They are the people that were burning the US flag to show their support for communist forces in Vietnam.

    They are the people that have romanticized "The Weathermen Gang" and continue to associate with William Ayers.

    They are the people who slowly rewrite the history books.
