The basic corporate fallacy is that CEOs' pay is tied to performance; it is not.

CEOs get these runaway salaries because if they (the bd) give them out, they in turn will be rewarded with runaway salaries themselves. They sit on the bd for the ABC Corp and give the CEO X.

"You're either part of the solution or part of the problem. Why is it that so few of "us" get involved in volunteering, politics or anything that makes a difference.

Furthermore, President George Bush, and the Bush Administration are making the world a safer place for people from all walks of life!

Re: Survey Shows Most Blacks Favor Slavery Reparations

In my opinion you are talking about apples and oranges. Reprations, as I see it, is about recuperating lost wages. Period. Affirmative action, for example, is about counterbalancing white racism and sexism. The two - while perhaps connected by a common defendant - have little to do with each other.

Re: Survey Shows Most Blacks Favor Slavery Reparations

James Wesley Chester ·
Warren has a point. Reparations has to be settlement. If done correctly, that settlement will include a 'facilitating mechanism' that will minimize, if not preclude, continued obstruction by system. All codification, both legal and institutionall policy, has be included in that settlement, as well as the mechanism for ultimate authority to identify and expunge/negate. Maybe an ultimate 'court of review.' For lack of a better term. PEACE Jim Chester

I agree with most of what you have written.

I'd rather see a system that sets upward limits on receiving payments.

I definitely see what you're saying. The problem is that the program as of now is basically a supplement. Anyone who lives exclusively on Social Security benefits is living in poverty. This means that after all that these people have put into the system, all they will receive is a supplement. Decreasing the the benefits further would make putting money into the program an even worse deal than it already is. This definitely makes sense, and it's actually how some of the reform plans work to a...
