Just like BB, I am appalled at the heinous amounts of money that entertainers, sports figures, executives, and many others make. In this administration, I think we finally (finally!) have the right people to put into place the Ministry of Equal Pay. Since these people cannot be counted on to accept reasonable annual salaries we clearly need a new Fed outfit to set them right. The shiny new Fed budget of $3,803,000,000,000 is $901,000,000,000 in the hole, and there's no better way to fill that gap than to cut back Alec Baldwin's annual pay down to something reasonable, like to the hourly cost of operating Air Force One. And since they are so good at budgeting, they are absolutely the right people to run the MEP. I'm still waiting for that address where I can send the Feds extra money for these wonderful programs.
Those evil banker CEOs had the nerve to pay back what they borrowed, with interest. Those fools-of-excess only borrowed what they were pretty sure they could pay back, and as the Feds show us, that's no way to run a ship! GM didn't pay back what they borrowed, but why should they? Look at their quality ratings; they certainly mean well! (Isn't there at least an award we can give them?) I'm sure the 270,000,000 shares of GM the Feds have invested for me (the UAW needed raises, you know) will soon be worth megabucks, and they will deposit a large chunk of those earnings into my 401(k), at which time I will no longer have to manage the 401(k) myself but can leave that mess to the Fed investment experts. Yeah, that's what I'm "banking" on!
