    Why shouldn't I be angry at other peoples wealth when I see corporate heads taking (notice I didn't say earning) 400 times what the average worker does. And this whether or not they perform well. If they do a bad enough job, they get fired but not before they walk out the door with $50 million in cash and benefits. At the same time these corporate types say they can't afford to give the common man decent health care in many cases, or they fire workers when there is a downturn in the economy, and instead of sharing in the pain, they give themselves bonuses for their wise downsizing decision.

    If corporate america would lead by example, this bad attitude wouldn't exist. When I was in the military, our leadership send us to the field in bad weather, but they were out there with us sharing in the pain. They led by example and they were respected.

    If the common man were to accept what is going on, and many do, they would only be chumps. The republican answer to all this is to lower taxes on these same corporate types. Why should this type of behavior be accepted?
