ABSTRACT
The author comments on the American International Group (AIG) spending millions of dollars on executive bonuses. He compares this entitled aristocracy to pigs which if left alone will have perished or moved on once they had trampled and devoured their resources. He labels as the lowliest, simplest form of deception the act of handing out billions of dollars of free money with no strings attached, then showing shock and outrage when the money disappears.
