    You dont think a plot to blow up three boarder stations would make it to the internet somewhere...even if its just the local paper?

    right :hsugh:

    they probably wouldn't want to air a story like this, especially since they could really sensationalize it :hsugh:

    In related news, I just heard from a friend that someone somewhere thought something about something else.

    nothing on google, nothing on drudge. I call bs. In other news, Obama actually said something I agree with.

    I think they should as well, if they are one of the banks who are receiving bail outs.

    Nah fuck it. They should get huge bonuses. They ran their banks into the ground, completely destroyed trust in the banking system, raped the taxpayers for billions of dollars, and still kept their fucking lives and jobs.

    There was this Japanese CEO, who took pay cut to entry level engineer salary and ride mass transit to work due to economic hardship. I want to see one American CEO do that.

    You won't. I'm sad to say that this country has turned to shit thanks to greedy, spineless assholes.... CEO's and politicians alike.

    I believe Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt are two other noteable ceo's that take $1 salary. Its not that unheard of, Lee Iacocca sort of started the trend about 30 years ago.

    Hot damn! :eek3:

    That article makes it sound like that rule was imposed on the CEO...by the Board maybe? Not that he volunteered to take pay cut. Regardless, I'm happy to see that this is being done.

    there was a CEO at one time that stopped taking a paycheck until the company made it back into the black. I don't see Mr. Obama willing to do something similar to balance the budget. While he's at it he should stop paying congress too until they can balance the budget and pay off the national debt. he did run on a platform of change...

    Its $400,000.
    It would be a great gesture if he were to donate say $200,000 of that knowing full well that he will make millions more after he leaves office and that while in office he has little to no expenses.
