The completely preposterous 90% tax on the AIG bonuses was a full fledged assault on America and our way of life. Anyone not outraged by this *taxation* (which will be overturned by the Supreme Court, if not sooner) forgets our history "No taxation without representation." Obama came to office on the premise of rule of law. He and the libs especially used it to bludgeon Bush on the War in Iraq and in our dealings with the rest of the world. The AIG bonusues were written in legally binding contracts. Rule of law! Attacking those bonuses, which were approved by Christohper Dodd, Democrat, represents a heinous attack on a specific set of individuals by the force of heavy handed government, certainly American citizens, and represents something way uglier than anything President Bush did. This is actually an unlawful bill of attainder, which is what our country and its laws stand against. We don't suffer kings. Obama should have stood up against this but he did not. He is in this case complicit in an assault on individual freedom, on our way of life and on our laws, designed to protect American citizens against tyrannical government.
