    Dude, really? Okay, tell me your post number and I'll go back and read it. Look, I lead by example.

    Did your see the guy that called me names and implied I was some kind of left wing, bleeding heart liberal - Hell, I don't recall what all of it was. I didn't my boxers in a bunch. I responded factually and let it go.

    But, Dude for real if you let me get under your skin that easily, tell me what was said and I'll look at it. Nobody wants to ruin your Christmas.

    There’s the rub! All our investments are diversified. Can you say where your investments are? What the ceos of those companies make ?

    Board members and ceos are all in cahoots to hook each other up with other people’s money.

    I quoted exactly what you posted in my last post.

    I didn't see the post calling you anything, nor is it relevant to me.

    People have no ability to ruin a second of my life let alone a day or season, only I am responsible for that. I'm not sure why you think it bothers me, I just don't understand what you are saying and need a clarification. Pretty simple and easy, you seem to think it is a difficult thing to back up your statements.

    I think if you look at a company's portfolio many times the salary of the CEO is listed. Also, you can often go online when you research a company and find out what they are paid, if not, don't invest in the company, it's your money and you have the control of where you invest your dollars.

    That's it..... Time to start studying and boycotting the companies out there that are working against the security and interest of this country and it's citizens.

    I agree, it is our money and we have the only say of where we spend and where we invest. I like mom and pop stores and I try to stay away from the big box stores that send their deposits out of state or even the country. You pay more for mom and pop however, they offer some great human interchange.

    Even if there was any truth to that, major investors still watch their money carefully. They could care less how much a CEO makes as long as their returns are very high.

    I agree . I do this same .

    As for my retirement . I don’t know exactly which companies im tied too since investments groups have all kinds of links . That’s the system that keeps ceos / boards rolling in obnoxious salaries .

    If you don’t know where your money is going, that is your fault. Unite yourself from your groups and put in individual accounts. You are not a victim, neither is anyone else, when it comes to investing we all have choices and we all make choices.

    Most ceos have sore shoulders from golfing. They are unable to work hard.
