    And you, sir, are far from being a radical leftist !
    So, how about say $100000 being tax free, and 30% on all amounts above that ?
    And they can "earn" a billion dollars per year - for all I care....
    Rather unfair, still, as I believe that our tax code is fair, for the poor and middle class anyway........

    I see,

    So what you take from Christian ethics is only one trait of not being judge mental
    Interesting escape clause to justify your greed and corporate murder globally.

    Jesus also said that the rich should give away their wealth. You do realise that Jesus was a socialist?

    Christianity and capitalist corporatism are morally incompatible. Choose or rot in the furnace of Beelzebub.

    We can google for information that would objectively show that damage is being caused by this income disparity you reference. Wouldn't you have to have a hypothesis before asserting that there is damage, and then the supporting evidence evaluated before any such conclusion is made. How do I know that you didn't just skip those steps and just reached a conclusion that you believe but can't prove? Maybe your evidence is just has some correlation but not any causation?

    I don't think there should be a maximum dollar number. A maximum defined as some multiple of the lowest salary in the corporation might make sense though. Or it might not, I'm open to opposing views.

    So what you are saying is that you are a Christian and insist upon people following your religious beliefs?

    Could you name a couple of executives and what charges they should have filed against them, or is it just speculation on your part?

    My point is that 500k is a lot of money and more than enough to live off.

    Now is 500k "enough" or "fair" for a person who runs a company that say generates 20 billion in profits? Not really but neither is 200 million. If a person preforms then he or she should be rewarded... and only if they preform. And lets be reasonable when giving bonuses and compensation.. blowing 40 million on a CEO while people are loosing their jobs to prop up the bottom line is.... disgusting.

    Is 500k "enough" or "fair" for a person who runs a company that comes out sizable red numbers .. say 400 million ? Frankly yes and that is stretching it... such a person should not get paid at all in my opinion..

    In our world, the person driving a company into the ground gets pay a hell of a lot more than 500k for basically being a failure. He should be paid basic living allowance if it stood up to me... no performance no over living expenses pay. His/Her workers are threatened to lower their pay requirements or loose their jobs and so should the CEO.... but we both know that wont happen under the present egotistical greedy regime that has infected big business.

    Obama believes the WalMart Heirs at $20 BILLION EACH plus $16 BILLION more between them isn't enough, so he gave them a $2.8 BILLION Dollar a year tax break from ObamaCare, plus deciding WalMart employees earning under the poverty line is plenty enough already.

    Americans voted AGAINST ANY limits on tax breaks for the super rich in voting for Obama, rejecting limiting tax breaks to $25,000 per year.

    So Americans have already decided they do NOT want the rich to pay more taxes. Rather, that the rich need more tax breaks like the WalMart heirs and the CEOs of 1200 other corporations do.

    ^ Everyone who voted for Obama voted for that. That's the facts.
