Rabbitgod: Max pay law.

CEO pay must be equal to or less than 100 times average company employee pay.

If the CEO is receiving maximum pay allowed but wants a raise, he needs to up the average pay by giving everyone else a raise too.


Mostly to the upper management and executives of course. Oh and sacking the ones in the mailroom and the janitors and pay for a 3rd party contractor to do those jobs to boost the average, etc. Very easy to manipulate that.

That's cute, the Über-Corps, sitting on massive reserves of cash are too busy buying platinum shiatters and iridium parachutes for the aging frat bros to actually pay American workers a living wage, and that is somehow the President's fault.

I guess the kind of people that believe that fairy stories are literally true, jingoism is awesome, and yellow journalism is "fair and balanced" will lap this shiat up.

Reality, unfortunately for GOPtards, has a liberal bias. Every wannabe Jamie Dimon and Koch-sucker is to blame.

Libs: "bush destroyed our economy!"

Pointing out bad economic  numbers under Obama...."the president has nothing to do with the economy!"


Yes, they are that intellectually dishonest.

I did a thesis on wage stagnation in the early 90's.  I really have no sympathy for American workers as they've let themselves get repeatedly raped.  It's been obvious for 30 years, at least, that they will bend over and get shafted by their corporate masters with no complaint.  In fact, they will deride anyone who points out they're getting shafted.

When I see corporate charters getting revoked and national strikes, I will start feeling sympathetic toward American workers.  Until then they are getting exactly what they deserve.

Yes, Bush's two credit-card wars left us in great shape and Obama f*cked it all up by not fixing the mess fast enough. Gotcha.

I'm sorry, but who was in office when the economy completely tanked?

You don't recover from a global economic meltdown the moment another guy steps into the White House, and it takes the help of a Congress willing to work with the President.  There's plenty to criticize Obama about, but this mess is on Bush.

It was a little too jumpy for me... I had to 'fix' it a bit (not mine originally... just  needed to)

Ever notice how people that believe in trickle-down economics also believe that poors should just be more bootstrappy?

But isn't trickle-down economics the very idea of a handout?  That so much wealth accrues at the top that it has nowhere else to go but down to the plebes?  That doesn't sound very bootstrappy to me.

Personally, I'd rather just be paid a decent wage for a hard day's work.  Silly me.

JohnnyC: Maybe the subby is suggesting that the government pass a law that says that CEO's can't make more than 5% more than their average paid employee?


At which point all those employees suddenly become independent hourly contractors who can be fired at will with no notice.

So who is being a coont now?

Nice that the Cantor headline was an unmitigated lie.

I'm with the Democrats much more often these days than with the GOP, but dishonest fearmingering isn't going to help right the ship.  The GOP does enough stupid things that we don't have to make shiat up.

That stat has been thoroughly discredited. Thanks for playing though.

You are correct. American CEOs make 380 times more than the average worker, not 475. And I can provide a citation, unlike some people.

Just be patient.  All that wealth will trickle down.  Aaaaaany minute now.


Well that right there's your problem. Too many people are sitting in their ass waiting for the money to rain down on them from Uncle Sugar when they should be out there working for a living.

Disposable income, or the money left over after taxes, dropped 4 percent after adjusting for inflation, the biggest plunge since monthly records began in 1959.

"Biggest plunge" is NOT the same as "lowest level". Has anyone pointed out that subby is an illiterate, mathematically challenged retard yet?

I could go into a long and detailed explanation of why this is mostly the Republicans' fault, but it's a plenty loud chorus already. Instead, I will exhort subby to consume a penis.

Curious: Excluding food and energy costs, prices climbed 1.3 percent in January from the same month in 2012, the smallest year-to- year gain since April 2011.

how the fark do you exclude food and fuel. i went shopping yesterday and bought food, fuel and a couple of tools for work. the food and fuel were 97% of what i spent. and both more than 1.3 percent more than a year ago.

couple of years ago or so i didn't get a COLA for my SS since they used that "excluding food and fuel" shiat. i can guarantee you that my cost year over year went up no matter what the government said.

and btw fark obama and his chained CPI. let him try living with even the pathetic increase we get now.


I'm pretty sure that the president has a zero percent salary increase each year.

And fuel and food aren't included in most inflation measurements because the prices of those items tend to be affected by things other than the money supply.

What? You get snarky about my English using a fragment? Make sure you don't address the math though, that would be too much. Jackhole bootlicker (fragmented for your viewing pleasure).

gaspode: It is actually really sad to think about where your country could be right now if the last 4 years had not been wasted on internal political war with the terrorist party instead of actually working for the good of the nation.


Yes, the political war must stop.
