of course, I'm on E46F, aren't I?

But then I totally left, because I figured I'd come get a government job where I can get better benefits and not have to work at all.

I was going to become CEO of my company, but then I saw that he only makes $2 million so I decided that wasn't motivation enough.

this is a cute witch hunt, I've never seen so much projection of failure. You guys need a couch to lie on?

No lie. Intriguing that some people can only look through the prism of envy and jealousy, as if what one person has must automatically mean you cannot have it. I don't understand the sheer bitterness. I'd have to become a Buddhist to cleanse the hate from my soul.

Disclaimer: I have spotted actual a**hole CEOs in the business habitat, so I don't deny they exist. They just don't have the power to ruin my life.

Are you sure it's only a witch hunt like persecution? Are you sure it's nothing like what Jews experienced in Nazi Germany?

I think busa is implying the good ol' Nazi reference is solely a GOP tactic. So this is where I will imply it isn't and that in fact Dems resort to the same tactic just as often, and it is equally stupid in all cases.

@ condemning and criticizing CEOs

While I don't always agree with their salaries and benefits, your average Joe couldn't even begin to think of how to perform in that position.

Oh, go cry me a river. This entire thread is based on one single idiot comparing the treatment of the rich by the progressives to Nazi persecution. That's what the thread is about. Any other meaning you want to attribute to it, that's your own problem.

Well, aren't you just a bastion of equality?

You're comical without even trying! So you've declared I cannot point out hypocrisy in this Nazi-themed thread? I must have missed another PT rule, oops. Shall I go start another thread citing lib's abuse of the meme?

But, compared to you, I am a bastion of equality, a beacon of hope and enlightenment and a foundation of knowledge.

The culture of envy and low expectations we are fostering is really, really sad.

With that said, there is plenty of money below the CEO level....more than enough to satisfy most.

You work for a bank? You automatically go high up on the sh!t list from the public's point of view. Well your company that is.

Correct. Because the public is stupid and bought the lies that banks created the recession.

calls the public stupid, but can't do math, doesn't know how to do research, doesn't know the term peer-reviewed, and derives "credible" sources from blogs while at the same time, is in college, and has access to his university library and library archives and chooses not to use them as a reference.

We were forced into taking bailout money so as to not make the other, larger banks look weak. We then couldn't pay that money back early because of the same problem. It's definitely nice working for a responsible institution.

Some banks did help create it, but you fail to grasp that fact.
