With the constant stream of unprecedented Federal bailouts of “AAA-rated” Wall Street companies, this parody of a recent AIG commercial featuring worry-free butterfly watching seems most fitting given the collapsing house-of-cards of one “rock-solid” institution after another… Watch at your own risk, or more prescient, risk your money in these institutional Behemoths at your own peril… When all’s said and done, who’ll be left to bail out the United States of America and its people? Who’s for REAL CHANGE?

girl: butterflies. what are you thinking about daddy?
dad: i’m thinking about butterflies too.
girl: but daddy, aren’t you worried about protecting your company and employees in a changing global economy? are you tapped into the right capital markets expertise to help manage your institutional assets? what about life insurance? college?? retirement??? you need a smart financial plan you know…
dad: we’re with aig honey, so right now all i’m thinking about are butterflies – I’m just hoping we’re not broke…
v.o.: the aig companies, with the hope we’ll still be here…
