Time To End Outrageous CEO Compensation

I am fed up with hearing this krap about our social betters taking risks and hence “deserving” such ridiculous rates of compensation. No I am not against people saving and investing to latter become millionaires! I am talking about the parasites of our society who never earned their millions but inherited millions or who earn millions per year!

Excuse me where is the cure for cancer, heart disease, the energy crises or aids? Give society such a result and sure they are then “entitled” to millions in compensation!

What’s that you say they take “risks” with their investments?

What about the soldier in Iraq who faces death or dismemberment? What about the risk he or she takes while our former President never finished his duty to the National Guard? This week we had a deadly coal mine disaster! What about the RISK these brave souls make every day to finance the profits of the parasites who send them into the mines! Where is the compensation for the risks that miners take?

To use right wing talk, “we live in an era of licentious permissiveness”. Yes indeed we do but not in the sense that these parasites speak about! We see these corporations acting like giant collectives subjugating the individualism of American citizens to serve the greed of our social betters.

They ship our jobs, wealth and technology off shore while they make a profit! This is not just a blue collar issue!

What about those who took the “RISK” of studying computer science? Where is the reward for the risk of such students when computer jobs are off shored and/or H1–b Visa holders come to our shores and take the high tech jobs from those who took the “RISK” of investing their money and time in technological education?

Yet we are told that blue collar workers should learn new skills. What skills? How to serve hamburgers at McDonald’s? The middle class must demand an end to what FDR called the “Economic Royalists”! We may not want to get involved in legislating salary levels.

However there is a cure! It is called “The Progressive Income Tax – Just Reality’s way of saying hello”!

It’s not like they earned it! If you are Middle Class and have self respect then there comes a time when you must say enough is enough. No deserves to earn that much more then me!
