Get really tired of hearing how, when it comes time fpr cutbacks, that everyone has to sacrifice for the "good of the company".  With 1 million+ compensation packages being awarded to CEO's, I don't see a whole lot of "sacrificing" being done there!

which is worse an armed robber that holds up a bank steals a few thousand or a ceo that uses corporate profits to "contribute" to our representatives so that outsourcing can continue,lays off hundreds of their fellow americans and moves production to our enemies country for their cheaper labor,buys up the laid off employees homes at a fraction of their value and then hires psychologists to manipulate the masses with word tricks so they can destroy american workers[cato institute and heritage foundation}

How much is enough???? When I see figures like these it makes me rethink that whole redistrubution of wealth thing. Does one person really deserve to be paid that kind of money??? Compared to what the President of our country makes its hard to believe such salaries exist. And no I don't care who is in office, republican or democrat. I think there is much more riding on the presidents shoulders than the CEO's of one of these companies. It disgusts me.

Taxes paid by these tycoons - Zero, nada, none.   Taxes are for the serf class and little people.  These guys need to by Hawaiian islands and playgrounds for their grand kids.

Yes, and while Kinder probably collected Social Security on top of it all, he did not pay one red cent in Social Security taxes.  Hasn't in years. While middle and working class wages have stayed largely stagnant for over 30 years, the greatest gains in income have come via capital gains, which is not subject to Social Security taxes.  This is why Social Security is in trouble.  Most of the income in America is sucked up by people that first of all pay a lower percentage to income taxes than the rest of us, they also pay virtually no social security taxes.  They like to refer to the coming changes as wealth redistribution, I call it giving back what you stole.

Only in America..Now tell me again what's wrong with the economy. The balance of wealth scale seems to be having a problem keeping equality in balance.  Not that I am against free enterprise and self rewarding for good work but this is beyond comprehension in today economy. WE have states now legislating tax increase on energy saving cars because they are losing tax revenues from the reduction of gas sales. And then comes along a self serving individual flaunting his wealth at the continued loss of the common worker. Greed is sure the top motivation of the free enterprise system and, unfortunately, lead to its downfall. Enjoy your wealth but I am satisfied that you will not be able to take it with you when you die. So the he who dies with the most wins.......is still dead. Enjoy life and family instead of the "top of the mountain"

did any of you left handers notice " fouderr or co- founderof fotheir business". Fred Smith for example, gambled all of his asseets (piddly) after an Ivory league professor almost failed his term paper on the FEDEX concept. Nontheless he pressed on. You risked nothing you gained nothing!!  here is a novel idea. Get off your dead **** and do something, anything, mow the grass, something rather than expect someone else to fund your lazy **** to advance yourself. free enterprise doesn't mean you get everything free!!

Whoever has the most at risk, should be rewarded the most.  Get your own, and quit bitching about others.
