    more.  And if the CEO damages his company and it results in lost revenue and jobs then their golden parachutes are cancelled as well as their exit pay.  No more screwing the employees for big pay outs.

    How the hell did we get to this point, where unelected people are running our govenment and the elected people aren't and we have no representation except for good congress people like Mr. Grayson, and Senators like Bernie Sanders.  Always at this time of year I think about "Its a Wonderful Life," and realize we are in Potterville.
