Wasn't me. I wasn't barely old enough to vote then.



As for the Rush comment- above. Among others. But Neal Bootz is a better entertainer. Guys like Rush and Hannity are a little too narrow in their views. I'd like to say I'm a little too open for such mindset.

Nobody ever got rich working 40 hours a week.



I work with people who figure the key to success is snowmobiling and drinking beer. It's not working out, so it's the rich man's/Republicans'/big corporations' faults.

The great thing about Boortz is that conservatives scream he's an anti-Christian liberal and liberals scream he's a fascist "neo-con."



That whole "black/white" thing.

While I think Kreb's last sentence makes some good points about execs in general, the cost of degree statement, which sounds good as "street smarts", is utterly meaningless.



It is neither the degree nor cost of said degree that gets you a shot at a CEO or COO job at a big org that will pay you mega bucks. It is your track record of making investors money and maximizing stock value - period.



Thinking clearly is indeed a challenge, innit.

He was referring to the poster that called you a Neo-Con.

Default Slave?

If indeed you are a "slave to a/the corporation, given the way opportunity is boiling over all around you, you put yourself in the shackles. The key is in your hand - use it.

You're a slave to your own mentality. I work for others for years (15-1. Then one day decided I'm going to be my own boss. I've have ACE running for 8yrs. It's worth the 60 to 80 hrs a week. One day my company will compete with much larger companies and I will be the "fat cat". One thing is for sure- I'm a slave to the IRS and NO ONE else. fairtax.org

Some people pay hundreds of thousands of dollars so that their kids can get liberal arts degrees from places like Harvard. The graduates are then qualified to cook french fries.... usually. An Associates Degree in Air Condtioning from a trade school is more valuable in real terms.

I'm always amused by college teachers who think that anyone else is overpaid.

I completely agree about the degree point. The only reason I brought it up is because shizuki was using it as an example of why CEO's should be paid so much.



I agree with you that CEO's get paid mega bucks when it appears they have a good track record. However, just because a given company is successful at a certain time can absolutely have nothing to do with the management.



Look at AOL right now. They're riding on a slowly subsiding wave of dial-up internet access which has given them immense amounts of cash. However, their upper management is full of retards. Their CEO gets paid big bucks, but they are doomed to failure.



I'm sure he'll jump ship and go "lead" some other company for hundreds of millions a year before AOL loses out to broadband completely.
