    Default Throw (virtual) tomatoes at AIG!‏

    Throw (virtual) tomatoes at AIG!‏

    Y'know, the AIG million-dollar bonuses being paid out with our taxpayer money got me mad enough to, well, throw something.


    So MoveOn member Kris Khoury helped us whip up a game that does just that!

    It's called "The Great AIG Tomato Toss," and it's oddly addictive. We should stop throwing money at the people who ruined our economy—and start throwing (virtual) tomatoes.

    It's a fun game, but it's got a serious purpose: to get the outrageous AIG bonus money back. When you play the game, you can also sign our petition to demand the return of the bonus money. The more people who play the game, the more signatures we'll be able to deliver to congress. 300,000 of us have signed already, and we're shooting for 400,000.

    So check out the game, pass it on, and then sign the petition if you haven't already. Together, we're going to get some justice from the people who played a role in creating this whole financial crisis in the first place—even if it that call for justice starts with a single, juicy, digital tomato.

    I wonder where our names and email address will ultimately end up.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

    They will end up exactly where they said they would. If you didn't trust the group, you shouldn't have signed the petition. MoveOn has been active for a "long" time and are a legitimate organization. Just saying..

    I actually did not play the game and I'm sure they are a fine upstanding organization that would never do anything wrong.....like AIG and people like Madoff. I just made a simple statement of question. One can trust whomever they want, but I just don't feel the need to provide such information to play a game. Reminds me of a piece of cheese enticing the mouse to the trap.

    I joined this campain site before the election and now I can't get off their mailing list. I have made numerous attempts to email and ask to be removed. I finally just spam all that junk I get.
