Are you fuggin kidding me??? Celebrities and Pelosi fly on these planes every day, where is the outrage at that? Ever seen their "homes"????  Chit, Pelosi's bar bill on her flights in 1 year was more than 99% of a US citizens annual salary. Give me a break...  Liberal azz Diane Sawyer makes $12 Million a year for talking, TALKING....and she gets on TV and bitches about a business owner that EMPLOYS folks at $50 million worth of payroll and makes a $1 million a year and calls HIM greedy....fuggin liberals are a hoot.

What we have here is a corporate empire. American blood is shed in war so that other nations can be fed the same BS this nation is fed and our corporations can invade with their BS. In other countries American fast food restaurants is also poisoning their citizens, Monsanto and Dow are killing people by the thousands. Coca Cola kills just the same, our drug companies poison and kill and corporate murder for profit is rampant around the globe and if they don't like it we place economic sanctions, we bully them until we subdue them by letting our corporate killers invade, all for what, so fat cat billionaires can get even richer. That's the real reason we are hated in parts of  the world and the reason American soldiers are killed. no for freedom, not for democracy, but for greed.

We complain about CEO's making "too much money". Yet they employ hundreds if not thousands of people at their companies. Yet, I don't see the LIberals out there crying and complaining about the $15 million per movie salary that George Clooney gets each time he make s a film and the additional millions he gets from product endorsements, etc. He's an entertainer, he employs NO ONE, where is the liberal outrage about his earnings? Or Oprah's  or Sean Penns or your other Hollywood icons ? George gets his salary whether or not his movie makes ANY money for the studio. Nice article about ttypical liberal class warfare, yet it's just another mouthful of liberal hypocrisy. Blahh, blahh, blahh.

Isn't interesting that so many "Big Labor" people are quoted on this article. AFL-CIO. SEIU.  Bet they don't complain when they make big money, now do they. And the guy who runs Boeing...dude's running a worldwide corporation that makes aircraft for almost every nation in the world. Let's see some of you pantywaists run just such a corporation. You lazy ba$tards just want your 40 hour work week so you can sit in front of the television and drink Bud and eat cheese doodles. Dude's making life and death decisions daily and you want to complain about his salary. Get a life.

Hello!!

Everyone of you who is complaining about CEO's and Corporations need to look at your personal investments you are the share holders of these corporations. You have voting rights and the ability to pull you money out and put it in a bank or under your bed. You also hate the banks, so the bed it is.

As a shareholder you are part of the corporation, an owner actually. By your own evaluation an evil entity. Those of you who do not have any money saved and invested get a job or start paying yourself because it is your responsibility to take care of yourself, not the government or corporations or your Neighbors

Also be aware that most of the Hollywood types and the musicians  who you adore are most lilkely incorporated.

I guess we are all evil by association if you are to be believed

Oh yeah - more propoganda to hate the rich.  Don't you guys have anything better to write about?  Get off the liberal media bandwagon, and report things that really matter.

Really? Seriously?  Why not do the same type of article on the perks and pay of celebrities or sports icons... I mean, give us a break, the number of CEO's receiving these types of benefits pales in comparison to what Hollywood is provided.

And this is the reason wages have stagnated  and gone down. Greed gone wild!!!!!

And the 1% complain that business is though! No f-ing wonder! They GRAB the profits!

The greed by the 1% keeps the 99% struggling. GOP caters to the 1%.
The Bush tax cut extension to the 400K and under, shifted the tax burden a tiny bit toward the wealthy. Now we need to shift the wage/salary increases toward the 99%.

Take a look at GEs Jack Welch's divorce settlement and his list of the perks shows how his greedy perks allowed him not to spend a dime of salary. Meals, lodging, entertainment, travel all were billed to GE... And .all tax free too...
