Class warfare is not going to solve this nations problems, no matter how jealous of the boss's income one is.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
It's all a rather moot point anyway. Corporate boards and share holders aren't going to roll back compensation, the government damned sure isn't going to do anything and perhaps only a few CEOs, CFOs and COOs are going to be magnanimous and return excessive compensation to the employees.
I will all be whiskey under the bridge by this winter when the country finally tanks.

Equating today's CEO's with Bernie Madoff is not only wrong on so many levels, but inflammatory too boot.
