    was not a statement that everyone needs to be equal ... but that there is an insiders game at too many corporations that are creating circumstances for benefitting the insiders (especially executives) at the cost of the 'ordinary' shareholders.  Do you think that, in open voting, shareholders would support backdating of options grants to give literally percentages more of a corporation's annual profits over to a few executives?

    "Ordinary Investors", and I am one of them, are facing a Ponzi scheme -- and we are far down the pyramid.

      Backdating has nothing to do with company's profits.  The cost basis of the options really don't have anything to do with profits?  Yes, it is perhaps wrong that they get to backdate to increase their gains, but those are capital gains, not company profits....
