FAIRFIELD, Conn. A busload of activists outnumbered 2-to-1 by reporters and photographers are paying visits to the homes of American International Group Inc. executives in Connecticut to protest tens of millions in bonuses awarded by the company.
About 40 protesters parked at a cul-de-sac Saturday afternoon and walked to the Fairfield home of Douglas Polling. They were met on the curb by two security guards, and one activist read a letter detailing the financial struggles that many Connecticut residents have faced. The group then left the note in Polling's mailbox.

This is a rent-a-mob of left wing jerks.
Really sickening. Thank you zero.
It’s only a reconnoiter mission right now. Coming soon: America’s version of Kristallnacht.
The protesters are misguided!
Obama and the Democratic controlled Congress cut AIG the checks with no strings attached.
Were they wearing the uniform of the new Civil Defense Corps?
Isn't that against the law? Only the PO can put things in your mailbox since it belongs to them ....
What the hell is going on in this country when private citizens are targeted by the Federal government and their goons? Soon they’ll be burning the houses. This is a Krsytallnacht in the making.
Man, the things we could do on a bus full of progressive wackos. Stink bombs, dead fish, and skunk oil aplenty!
When are they going to protest union bosses homes?
The article indicated the activists left their note in Douglas Polling’s MAILBOX? I do believe anything other than mail delivered to a mailbox by the P.O. is totally illegal. Mr. Polling should take this up with authorities.
While I am not thrilled by the AIG bonuses, I see nothing but trouble coming from the thugs touring around neighborhoods in buses, checking out the executives’ homes.
Nice to see America’s fine “journalists” following around the ACORN rent-a-mobs for stories.
These folks are gonna have to be like Korean store owners in South Central after Rodney King -- protect yourselves and your families, guys.
Yes, it IS against the law — I didn’t see your post when I responded the same way you did re putting notes in mailboxes —
SA in the making.
What color are the shirts?
Not to worry - I do the same thing myself ... I don’t read all the posts and wind up saying basically the same thing - however one way to look at it is, like minds ....

Isn’t tampering with the mail or mailbox a Federal offense? — United States Code TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 83
I’ll take anything to get these fruitcases off the streets.
In a JUST world, they’d be living in those housess and those robber barons would be out on the STREET! (/s)
“The protesters are misguided!”
Yeah, they’re guided by the left wing organizers of the demonstration. Which qualifies as misguided.
Brown with an obama arm band
Enough is enough. It’s past time to get organized and respond to these left wing goons.
That was my first thought. Lefty protesters....aren’t too bright.
The whole mess (from Bawney demanding names to basically demonizing and blackballing an entire profession) reeks of McCarthyism.
Were there cops or just the security guys .....but then cops probably don’t know the law regarding po boxes ...
Simple sleight of hand is easy to pull on morons who trust the Government. "Look Here, look here" so they don't see who is really draining their hopes and dreams of the American Way.
Well, they are hiring private security guards. Truly sad when the Administration whips up its emotional minions to target individuals like this.
THE DETACHMENT FROM REALITY ON THIS THREAD IS EVIDENCE WHY REPUBLICANS WILL LOSE MORE SEATS IN 2010.
What color are the shirts?
Baby shit green?

CHAPTER 83 - POSTAL SERVICE
U.S. Code as of: 01/19/04
Section 1725. Postage unpaid on deposited mail matter
Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits any mailable matter such as statements of accounts, circulars, sale bills, or other like matter, on which no postage has been paid, in any letter box established, approved, or accepted by the Postal Service for the receipt or delivery of mail matter on any mail route with intent to avoid payment of lawful postage thereon, shall for each such offense be fined under this title.
Try this kind of conduct in front of an abortion clinic and the local cops would be arresting people by the truckload.
Now this kind of action is REALLY dangerous. Someone alert Bill Maher and Keith Olbermann fast oh wait, these loons were probably watching MSNBC before the bus left.
>>>> When will Americans see what is happening here. <<<<<<
Lots of folks see this as the kangaroo court and manufactured distraction that it actually is.
You are not alone.
But don't underestimate them . . . as Sweetness & Light points out there is a method to their madness: http://sweetness-light.com/archive/the-many-tentacles-of-cloward-piven
They won't stop until they cause a civil war and then Zero can call out the troops, declare martial law, and lock up all the dissenters that are still alive.
"Progressive" is their word. They are nothing of the sort, actually more like regressives. Don't let them define the terms of the debate...call them what they are.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
“They won’t stop until they cause a civil war...”
I was thinking the same thing. Especially if they continue to screw with the Constitution.
Even if the cops *do* know the law, the probability of them enforcing it is low.
Now, who’s buying the skunk oil?
It IS Kristalnacht in the making. Very very bad, so terribly irresponsible of Congress and little o to scapegoat these people who RECEIVED the actions of Congress and little o.
I have no problem with the ACORN goon protesting at AIG crooks’ houses. I’d just like to see people protest outside ACORN leaders’ homes as well.
Both groups have robbed America blind and helped create a financial catastrophe. In my book, AIG and ACORN are both enemies of America and Capitalism.
Just got back from Wilton, CT. Went down to the AIG Building to wait for the thug bus to come. 2:30 the Chieppo Charter pulls up and about 20 came off carrying signs and chanting “Main Street not Wall Street”.
All three networks were there to cover the non event. Chanting peeps were equal to the press, cops and security guards.
Did not know there was an event in Ridgefield or would have come over!
” This is a rent-a-mob of left wing jerks. “
Which, the protesters or the reporters and photographers?
Never mind, I know.
Roger that ...
