While HBO had set the premiere target to be in either June or July, a more particular date, June 14 has been thrown out as the airing of first episode in the second season.

Allegedly, Charlaine Harris, author of the book the series is based upon, has mentioned the date on her website in a post dated March 9. She was informed by the assistant of the show’s creator Alan Ball. Yet, the date remains unofficial until HBO releases a statement. “In terms of a premiere date – we actually don’t have a date set in stone, but it is looking like mid-June,” the network responded.

The production itself has been taking place since January this year. Alan Ball dished out on the second season, “There are new romances for Tara, Jason and Sara. Bill and Sookie have a lot of issues to sort out – including having made a new teenage vampire that’s living in their house. Bill and Sookie also go to Dallas to find one of their own who has gone missing.”

And the 9th book in the series is released May 5th, awesome!

Now an HBO original series, True Blood—the New York Times bestselling Sookie Stackhouse series continues.  Except for Sookie Stackhouse, folks in Bon Temps, Louisiana, know little about vamps—and nothing about weres.  Until now. The weres and shifters have finally decided to reveal their existence to the ordinary world. At first all goes well. Then the mutilated body of a were-panther is found near the bar where Sookie works—and she feels compelled to discover who, human or otherwise, did it.  But there’s a far greater danger threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhuman beings—older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves—is preparing for war. And Sookie finds herself an all-too human pawn in their battle.

AIG and Treasury, a codependant relationship…

AIG (despite a sternly worded letter from Timmeh) via it’s govt approved CEO Ed Liddy tells Geithner they HAVE TO pay over 165 million in employee bonuses MOST TO THE VERY UNIT THAT WROTE ALL THE  CRAPPY CDS’ THAT TANKED THE GLOBAL ECONOMY.. Arrrrgggle!. Disclaimer for those who don’t know MiM members worked at AIG we are  biased on this topic..

So anywho as we have discussed here before, AIG has a  G-D gun to our taxpaying heads, the counterparties to all the CDS are the biggest banks in Europe and around the world…thus we aren’t letting them fail, we are funneling our cash to European banks..

Yeah it is definitely a bad bad codependant relationship at this point and the Treasury is enabling this abusive behavior m’kay?

Do you become very upset when your partner does not follow your plan?

Do you feel you give and give and get little or no return?

Do you freeze up when in conflict with your partner?

Do you often find yourself saying, “It’s not that bad”?

Do you place your partners needs ahead of yours?

Do you feel that your relationship would fall apart without your constant efforts?

Do you feel that you are “stuck” in this relationship?

AND TIMMEH COULDN’T WORK WITH THAT TO GET THE G20 TO DEAL ON STIMULUS SPENDING, WTH, HE HAS A GREAT HAND!! I would’ve done it, cough up demand in your countries or we let AIG go down..WTH we have nothing left to lose baby..how WEAK….Try to LOOK like you have a spine…

Bernanke also expressed quite a bit of anger at AIG in his testimony before Congress this month…

CNBC:

President Barack Obama’s top advisers and Democratic and Republican congressional leaders voiced outrage on Sunday that insurerAmerican International Group, recipient of a $173 billion taxpayer bailout, is paying $165 million in employee bonuses. But they agreed it was unclear what, if anything, the government can do to recover the bonus money from the insurance giant or cut the bonuses since the contracts seem legally binding.

Lawmakers said, however, that plenty of questions need to be answered and some AIG officials may need to be ousted. They also said legislation may be needed to avoid a repeat of such action and retain public confidence in federal bailouts.

“We will absolutely do everything possible to make sure that the money we put in there is spent in a way that we think is appropriate,” Christina Romer, chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Romer and another top Obama adviser, National Economic Council Director Lawrence Summers, said contracts must be honored but the matter at AIG would be examined.

BIGGEST ;LAUGH/CRY OF THE SUNDAY CHATTER: TOTAL HYPOCRISY TO THE MAX, Summers says WE CANNOT ABROGATE CONTRACTS as the CRAMDOWN HOUSING bill Team Obama recommended moves to the Senate, HA HA BWAAAAHAAAAA!!

And this is after Summers flipped on the bad bad banks routine to GREED IS GOOD in his best Gecko impression, BWAAAHAAAAAA!!! You know all that bad bad bankers with our bad bad airplanes and now they are waltzing away with millions makes Team Obama  look WEAK baby WEAK….

“We are a country of law. There are contracts. The government cannot just abrogate contracts,” Summers told ABC’s “This Week.” Regardless, he said: “Every legal step possible to limit those bonuses is being taken by (Treasury) Secretary Geithner and by the Federal Reserve System.”

It gets BETTER! The GOP is saying, even though there are contracts, well we should look them over anyway, you know in case they KNEW it was bad, well isn’t that what the DEMS are saying about subprime loans? that the lenders knew they were bad? Yep, the flip flopping and side switching is FRAKKIN OFF THE RAILS NOW..

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said of the bonuses, “This is an outrage,” and that the Obama administration needs to do more.

“We all know that contracts are valid … but they need to be looked at,” McConnell told ABC “This Week.”

“Did they (AIG) enter into these contracts knowing full well that … the taxpayers of the United States were going to be reimbursing their employees? Particularly employees who got them into this mess,” McConnell said.
