We the people now own 80% of American International Group (AIG) thanks to our nearly $200 billion bailout "bonus." Everyone likes to make a clean start, so what better way to launch our new relationship with AIG than to give our purchase a new name?

This is fun. Submit your idea for a new name for AIG - here's your chance to call AIG what it really is! I submitted People's Investment Group (PIG) lol.

Wow, such jealousy. You do know there are normal run of the mill people who are invested in AIG, right? And yet, you cheer it's downfall. My mother has her retirement wrapped up in an AIG owned company. She's worked hard for her money. I'd hate to see her lose it.

I think that since we Taxpayers own 80% of the stock in AIG, that we should fire all the executives and replace them with Housewives. We know how to keep a budget, been doing it for years, we know how to run a business, been doing that for years too, and we've never needed a Bailout from the Taxpayers.

Shame on them ALL! How the hell did they screw up sooo badly, without telling anyone for sooo long? AND why are we putting up with it?
