    IIRC (I'm no expert in finance) it amounted to VP Cheney covering his financial interests in Halliburton with what was basically an "insurance policy" so that regardless of corporate performance, his compensation would be fixed and protected.

Maybe on paper he gets so much deferred compensation and maybe that is what he gets but with the history of his relationship with the company I think it's naive to not expect some kind of kick back under that table. Maybe I am a little cynical when it comes to the ultra rich and powerful but for someone who has in the past profited from wars, it's kind of hard to take him too serious even when making excellent points.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me. Maybe Cheney has good union representation.

    I suspect he is simply a smart and careful businessman.

    The only good point that I can come up with is that he's no loner in office.

    Yes because those on the right would never do such things. They only attack kids.

    Consider Limbaugh’s treatment of Malia Obama in 2010 when she was only 11 years old. Limbaugh mocked Malia in a disturbing “skit” about the BP spill, where he tried to imitate the child’s voice and instead came out sounding like something out of “The Exorcist.” Malia’s inclusion in this topic was inexplicable, as the child had nothing to do with the spill, and was seemingly introduced as a gratuitous way for Limbaugh to humiliate her father.
    In 1988, an adult Amy Carter – the sole daughter of President Jimmy Carter – reemerged to the national spotlight after protesting U.S. involvement in Central America and apartheid in South Africa. Instead of furthering civil discussion of these topics, Limbaugh’s response was to call her “the most unattractive presidential daughter in the history of the country.” He was forced to apologize, but not before adding an additional insult years later during his radio show: “She can’t help the way she looks.”
    Limbaugh’s most disturbing bullying incident stretches to a few years later, when he called a then-13-year-old Chelsea Clinton “the White House dog.” Limbaugh again half-heartedly apologized, but not before blaming the error on a technical glitch, saying that a picture of Chelsea was mistakenly displayed instead of the dog’s. “I don’t need to get laughs by commenting on people’s looks, especially a young child who’s done nothing wrong,” he added. “I mean, she can’t control the way she looks.”
