    You know better than this. Stop with the dishonesty. He did not say anything about limiting compensation, only suggested that compensation should be based on long term performance as opposed to short term.

    Dear Leader has come for the corporate CEOs. Dear Leader has come for automobile companies. Dear Leader has come for foreign companies seeking to do business in the US.
    The auto industries came to him(well, President Bush and congress actually originally), not the other way around.

    Next he will come for energy companies. Next he will come for doctors and healers. Next he will come for small business people. In the ineptitude and evil of his agenda he has explicitly stated his intent to come for all of these, and more.

    When he finally comes for you, who will be left to hear your complaints?
    Speculation and paranoia.

    The real difference must lie in the where the profits go - to the corporations or to the state.

    Since corporations are evil and the state is kind and benevolent, socailism must be FAR better tha fascism.

    Big business likes big government. Doesn't mean though that it's not intervention.

    Proves the analogy. Dear Leader did what no President has a right to do.

    And so it begins.....and so you run and hide (for now).

    There is nothing wrong with putting conditions on loans. If GM did not want the interference, they did not have to come to the government for help.

    Was that an original condition in the loan, or did the government make it up as it went along?

    So you don't know better than that.

    When the Secretary of the Treasury by direction of the President makes "suggestions" to Congress and the SEC, those suggestions are listened to and often enacted.

    Explain the Constitutional authority the government has to set wages at any level of the private sector. Don't cite the interstate commerce clause, because that does not allow the government to intrude on wages.
