    CEOs' golden parachute exit packages pass $100 million

    The golden parachute is evolving into the platinum kiss.


    Scores of CEOs depart the corner office with huge exit packages. But recent deals — making retiring executives newly minted $100 million (and up) men — are raising eyebrows even among those accustomed to oversized payouts.
    The latest execs who will cash in as they step aside: Nabors Industries' former CEO, Gene Isenberg, due $126 million when he exits as chairman, and IBM CEO Sam Palmisano, due $170 million. They follow Google's Eric Schmidt, who received $100 million in stock after leaving as CEO.
    Worth it or not, the trio underscore the pay inequity that has made Corporate America's elite ripe targets of populist movements such as Occupy Wall Street. Moreover, their paydays draw fresh wrath from corporate governance experts.

    And it is your job to determine what another individual makes? What's the end game here?
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    I hope one of those lucky guys adopts me.
    I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.

    What!? TurtleDude tells everyone, every single day on this forum that the middle class and working class that are pissed off, are just envious. People keep denying it and saying he's a broken record, etc., and then you come and write that!?!

    If you don't own stock in the company, why do you care? In fact, if you don't own stock in the company, how is it any of your business?

    I would love to hear how they're milking the country dry. Surely, you don't believe that if they got paid less, that the working stiffs would get paid more.
