    He said he didn’t say he didn’t say he said it!

    Wait… or did he didn’t say what he should have said, but he would have said already?

    Who can say, can you?

    But what he really said was said with greed and we’re more the sadder for it.

    I’ve been saying that they’ve been saying that for years.

    Lowering taxes on the rich has never helped anyone else. They do not increase the number of jobs, they do not keep jobs in the US, they do not even improve the lot of their current employees. They pocket the money and put it in offshore accounts. Meanwhile, those same people (and companies) DO pay taxes in some of the other countries they operate in. They’re just suckering the U.S.

    All you have to do is make any tax break contingent on full time jobs created in the US. No jobs=no tax breaks. Yeah. Tax them hard. and I’m a conservative, LOL

    This cartoon is silly. If the subject is CEO pay, that is unrelated to corporate taxes and job creation. CEO pay is not based on either. If the subject is corporate taxes and jobs, then why bring up CEO pay? The bag should be labelled Corporate Cash On Hand. But that is not nearly so inflammatory, is it?

    Not only privatize the military but pay them what they are worth, given the job. In Vietnam Westmoreland was once asked by a reporter after the rank and file had received a wage increase (privates went from $96 a month to $105 a month (a 10% increase!) whether that was a good idea, given the economic troubles of that particular quarter. His response was a question to said reporter, “What would it take for you to walk point in a Marine squad?”

    The reporter replied completely straight facedly, “not even for my current salary of $25000 a year.” So now if we privatize the military, how much will we pay a Grunt Rifleman? Radio Operator? Machine Gunner? Corpsman?

    Right now they make something like twenty to thirty thousand a year. How man of you dullards out there would walk point in a patrol making twenty thousand a year. What price would privatizing the militry have to settle on to get someone to volunteer to be a Grunt Radio Operator in the fire team at the pointy end of the spear?

    My answer is that just like many things the government does and many things no private entity would be willing to do if we left it to private business, we couldn’t afford it. That is why government exists. For the social good.

    It is true that many times government could do it better but to claim that business could always do it better is just plain stupid. However, being a fair minded liberal of the far left extreme type I am perfectly willing to let you rock ribbed conservative types have your way. No subsidies whatever for anything at all. No government except for providing mutual defense and ensuring the free flow of goods between states. No government interference at all in the business of the people. I would give you six months and you would be crying like a bunch of little girls.

    Absolutely correct. Capitalism, and especially capitalists, suck!!!
    They live off the toil of the masses. Power to the proletariat!!! They will get everyone working, particularly the parasitic capitalists!

    Now we see Peter the Greats true colors. ;0)
    .
    Yes, let us privatize the military and pay soldiers real salaries, then we won’t be able to practise war anymore as it will be priced out of the market. No more discount war!

    The problem is the Obama administration. It’s toxic to the economy.

    @hotdogger

    That is true, but cash on hand is determined after CEO pay. It is troubling when the pay of workers has remained stagnant and the average pay of a CEO has gone up from around 50x to 411+x average worker.

    But you are right. While I have no issue with a CEO’s excess (the amount of money someone has is of no concern to me), there’s a problem with “we can’t afford to pay you” a living wage when by comparison they’re making so much. This is one reason why Unions need to continue to exist, but there are bad unions, too.
