No You Won't!

Apart from law suits being brought against super mega change Resident Juan Fucking Asshole Peron Jr. Jr. there is now the possibility that he will facing a copyright infringement suit from none other than childhood heroes of the construction site Bob T. Builder and his charming but rugged wife Wendy, angered over broken promises of high level appointments in exchange for the free use of their theme lyrics.



"When we heard that Obama wanted to use the phrase "Yes we can," we approached him to let him know that the exclamation was ours," Bob told SNN.

Wendy went on to say, "He promised that if we gave him free use he'd appoint us co-secretaries of Housing and Urban Development. We should have known he was going screw us when he started having reservations about me being, 'just a girl.'"

Bob and Wendy T. Builder; pissed at the Resident; "The fucker stabbed us in the back."

"He totally fucked us over so now we want our due." Bob said they are asking for $1.5 billion in damages and usage fees.

"The way he's pissing away our tax dollars why should't we get a piece of the action."

The Builders also alluded to the possibility of seeking to get former Philadelphia Phillies hitter Dave Cash in on the suit. Cash started the "Yes We Can" chant for the Phillies back in 1974. Cash could not be reached for comment.

The Pointer Sisters, "Yes We Can, Can" (1971) want their piece, too. They say just because he dropped a "can" doesn't let him off the freaking hook. Sammy Davis Jr.'s heirs have a pro bono offer of suing on their father's behalf for his autobiography, "Yes, I Can," (1965) from a consortium of ambulance chasers, if they can be found sober, that is.

It doesn't look good for the Big Pamp does it? Those Pointer Sisters are tenacious from what I hear.

Was This An Outright Scam? (AIG - Again)

Hattip all over, including the forum and Zerohedge:

During Jan/Feb AIG would call up and just ask for complete unwind prices from the credit desk in the relevant jurisdiction. These were not single deal unwinds as are typically more price transparent - these were whole portfolio unwinds. The size of these unwinds were enormous, the quotes I have heard were "we have never done as big or as profitable trades - ever".

.....

AIG, knowing it would need to ask for much more capital from the Treasury imminently, decided to throw in the towel, and gifted major bank counter-parties with trades which were egregiously profitable to the banks, and even more egregiously money losing to the U.S. taxpayers, who had to dump more and more cash into AIG, without having the U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner disclose the real extent of this, for lack of a better word, fraudulent scam.

Was it deemed "critically important" by Treasury that these employees remain under employment agreements - including perhaps confidentiality, one wonders, therefore necessitating huge "retention bonuses", lest they leave and sing?

Now the alleged mechanism for the conduit to shuffle AIG bailout money through to the banks, including banks not in the United States, comes out.

All to "save the financial system" eh?

There was no need for "new authority" was there Tim? All you had to do, if this account is correct, is tell AIG to stick it where the sun doesn't shine (and send in a few cops) for making trades that were intentional money-losers and designed to stick the taxpayer with a monstrous (to the tune of $170 billion thus far) bill.

Where are the cops?

Oh wait - I know - they're in New York!

Paging Mr. Cuomo. Mr. Cuomo you have a call on Line 1!
