Yes, People Did Go On This Bus Tour Of AIG Executives’ Mansions

by Jim Newell

Here’s some thrilling footage of last Saturday’s much-hyped “bus tour” of various AIG executives’ mansions, in Connecticut. The people on this tour… they do not make as much money as the AIG executives. This frustrates them. So they either read letters aloud or deliver them to the AIG executives’ mailboxes. C’mon, really? At least take a shit on the lawn or something. [YouTube]

Entirely too well behaved. They should have an a bus load of just senior citizens who then do various antisocial things like taking a dump on the lawn. Then you’d have great images of the cops trying to arrest a 90 year old with a walker and a hearing aid.

Shouldn’t that bus be monikered “Cheapo Charters”?

“Fuck you, AIG! Fuck you, AIG!”

No looting and torching? What happened to the violent US America I knew?

Come on! Burn baby burn!

What’s with the Vivaldi background music? Isn’t that a touch…elitist? Wouldn’t Public Enemy be more appropriate?

Would’ve been more effective if they’d been towing a tumbrel behind the “Chieppo” charter bus. Oh well, maybe next time.

This movie needs more boobies in it.

Operation Misguided Anger declared successful. Path is now clear to loot the Treasury once again.

[re=271858]V572625694[/re]: That or The Coup. With songs like “Kill my landlord” and “Not yet free”, you just have to follow along to the words.

Screw shitting on the lawn. What about looting? Burning? Staging a production of Ibsen’s “Rhinocerous” in the nude?

*Uncontrollable laughter* at the thought of busloads of plebs shitting on well-manicured Connecticut lawns. Perhaps we can poop our way to shared wealth! Hey, nothing else has worked.

If you watch closely, there was illegal behavior. The security guy at the first house told them to put the letter in the mailbox; that’s a federal offense, since only US mail is allowed in a mailbox.

[re=271858]V572625694[/re]: AIG never meant shit to me…they were simply greedy and plain…muthertuck them and Bear stearns!! Cause I’m broke and unemployed…most of my friends don’t get no fffing bonues!!
