    I am sure glad those CEO's are being properly rewarded for all the risks they take.

    Bill Weldon, CEO of Johnson & Johnson (a Big Pharma conglomerate) earned $25 million after 9,000 employees were laid off or fired due to the "recession." I think every unemployed person in America should be given a copy of this report.

    I'd like a peek inside the thought process of someone making $25 Million who decides to lay off workers. How in the fuck do they justify their greed? They must see their own workers as some sort of alien species, not fully human.

    "Johnson & Johnson, a family company"

    Right...like the Mafia.

    I am sure that the companies increased unemployment insurance costs drove them to bankruptcy?
    Or did the executives pay them out of their bonuses?

    The J&J "Family" is now even bigger since it merged with Pfizer, another lovely "Family."

    There is nothing wrong with capitalism. But there is a lot wrong with unregulated capitalism, something Republicans just don't seem to understand.

    That's why I said "modern" capitalism.
