Damn, between you and "Bored" there isn't enough Ritalin to keep you focused on what you just learned.
There are 8 posts identifying how McGuire's retirement Golden Parachute when forced to quit was more than One BILLION dollars.
Oops - you forgot already.
The key word is --"Was". Besides being fined he had to forfeit most all his company options.

Yep, you don't care if children die and seniors suffer because billions that should be spent on medical care is churned into profit for private companies and billions for their CEOs.
We wouldn't expect any more from you.
That would require common sense and rational thought.
Are you sure that you aren't Columbus Native?

That's the point - a single payer system doesn't deny care - that's only a problem for the profit driven medical insurance companies.
WHAT?????????? To everyone in Topixland who reads this, I rest my case. This post from IO explains a LOT.

Okay, I'll bite. How do YOU KNOW that children died and seniors suffered due to the CEO's salary? I want a LINK; NOT your OPINION. Your opinion doesn't count when speaking of numbers. LINK.

<quoted text> Yeah, I know I am back tracking but the more I read this I just had to reply.
You shouldn't assume so much. I am and have never been a CEO. I worked all my life as either a blue collar worker or a skilled technician. I worked hard to accumulate everything that I have. So I know nothing about sitting in one of those soft chairs that you speak of.
Just where do you get your mind reading skills from? Go back there and tell them you want your money back.
I have thought a lot about the little man as I was one of THEM. So what? I made some mistakes as everyone does, but I guess you didn't, and could have done much better than I did with my life.I don't really know how much I would change if I could go back. I got what I gave.
I relate very well to all types of people. I look down on no man and I judge him by his character not his paycheck. A man is a man and he is only as good as what he does when he thinks no one is watching him. This goes for you too.
I think I have a very good idea of what is going on in this country and how people are treated. This country has been divided so it will fail. You are not helping by trying to divide the poor people and people that are better off. I don't think that was you intentions but that is what you are doing.
That was a good reply,BigDave.

She does an awful lot of assuming.

Yesterday she assumed I'm a country-club attending multimillionaire.

According to her I hate children, I'm a blasphemer that takes Gods name in vain, I hate poor people, and I hate black people. I mock the sick and I'm degrading to women. I am the "evil man" who keeps the little people down.

None of which is accurate in the least, as many of you know. But she doesn't seem to care that she unfairly and with no basis accuses people of whatever she likes.

It seems that if you disagree with her, you're going to be called a rapist or a witch or a child molester or whatever strikes her hysterical little mind at the moment.

I'd call that one hell of a character flaw.

She doesn't care if she's accurate or not. She's convinced she "knows".

I disagree with BigDave on damn-near everything. But I know him enough to say he is a good guy with a good heart. Maybe a touch too worried about the Russians though.:)

First you deny it happened.

Then when proven wrong you say it doesn't matter because it was almost - Gasp- 8 years ago. That's a million years to a Right Winger -history bores them.

So now you admit that McGuire did get over a BILLION in just a Golden Parachute - not including the regular compensation.

But it doesn't matter because he was even though given a BILLION DOLLARS that could have been used for healthcare - it's OK because he was fired for getting caught stealing even more from the shareholders.

Does that thinking actually make sense to even you ?

Thanks for admitting you were wrong.

And now your new theory is that it doesn't matter because he was forced to disgorge some of the more than BILLION DOLLARS he was paid as a golden parachute .

Ain't that great - in Right Wing America, if you steal a BILLION DOLLARS - that's fine - as long as you have to give some of it back.

And on Planet Earth he have up a small portion, not "most".

Here's a more bit of info for you.

This guy got OVER TWO BILLION DOLLARS in compensation.

That's TWO BILLION DOLLARS.

Fact:

.. In fact, by the end of 2005, McGuire's total take for his career as CEO had a staggering paper value of $2 billion....

Yep, how many sick children could have been treated and maybe given life with TWO BILLION DOLLARS.

Ah, never mind, we worship those who steal the most - and if people died to make McGuire a few Billion Dollars - well that's what our Capitalist God would want.

Let us pray:

Dear God of Unregulated Capitalism.

We gather today to worship those amongst us who have accumulated the most money, as we know it was Your will they do so.
We especially worship our brother McGuire, who managed to divert Two Billion Dollars to his personal aggrandizement at the cost of the sickness and death if those denied medical care.
Truly you found him to be worthy of Billions and found the sick and dying unworthy.
We can take a hint.
Curse those who have not accumulated sufficient material goods we hold in contempt and decision as we know you teach.
As Jesus said - the meek shall inherit the earth - and we know that meant give the poor the dirt they deserve.
Please make me rich.
I owe my neighbor nothing - it's every man for himself - unless if course I need help.
Please look out for the rich, the healthy, and those fortunate enough to have avoided sickness and disaster.

Blessed be the almighty dollar.

Amen.

To all those in topix forums, don't try to reason with republicans just say " May the Lord Rebuke you". You cannot reason with a demon and the same holds true for these hardcore republicans. Be glad they are not in power now building their 2 trillion dollar navy with golden toilet seats and solid silver sink handles.

You can't read or you just put your words in my mouth. Your orig. post#5830, p.272. "The medical insurers love it-the ceo of United healthcare received over a billion dollars for one corporate shill. Imagine how many kids could have received medical care with that billion dollars". I said I didn't believe it show me. I was correct because it was never paid and did not happen. See page #279, post#5967. This was written in 2012 not like your 2006 articles. Mine is not an article but done by a company that specializes in information. McGuire did not receive his golden parachute. I said he was a sleazeball and a crook. I know he did wrong , so what more do you want me to say? So I am not wrong as he didn't get the money. Should he have gone to jail? yes. But he has money just as the people in Hollywood and they do not go to jail either. I wasn't the judge. Saying that I thought this was o.k. and that I thought it was right is incorrect. You are like others on topix. and just make things up. So please say a small prayer for yourself so that you will learn not to put words in my mouth. I will go back and look up past post to prove my points.I say very clearly what I intend to say and do not need your help. Sorry for punctuation and spacing as your long winded post ate up all the space. I actually ended up with more room than I thought I would have.

Bill in D'ville doesn't need my help, but you really are being an a$$. He is obviously very knowledgable about taxes (I suspect he either is/was an accountant or some kind of financial officer). He posts facts after facts that people either ignore or do not understand - so I get his deciding that the intentionally ignorant will choose to remain so - why should he waste his breath.

".......The bulk of the costs for this month's production, though - and all others since the program's inception in 1978 - isn't shouldered by the administration, or by taxpayers, the White House told CBS News.

Kate Kelly, a spokeswoman for WETA - the Washington-area PBS station that created the series under President Jimmy Carter's administration and has produced the concerts ever since - confirmed that its budget covers the costs of the concert event and the television production, including the broadcast, transmission, travel, staging, recording and presentation. The White House, she said, "invoices for event-related costs."

Some taxpayer money will be in play through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and PBS contributions via the Program Challenge Fund, but corporations, foundations and other organizations sponsor grants that help cover the costs. Pepsi-Cola, The Annenberg Foundation and the Anne Ray Charitable Trust will sponsor "Memphis Soul."

This month's concert will be streamed live on the White House website, and broadcast April 16 by WETA, and at a later date by the American Forces Network to service men and women and Department of Defense locations internationally. It will be the 10th under President Obama; having hosted 17 productions during his administration,

the presidential record for most "In Performance" concerts goes to Ronald Reagan."

Chickenbutt, you know as well as I that BillinDville has explained various taxes over and over. It's not what you libs want to hear(you accuse conservatives of doing that, too), so you play dumb or think you know MORE. Trust me. You don't. He KNOWS his stuff about taxes, so you might as well let it go and move on. ALL of us are pretty sick of posting the same stuff over and over. I have stated that many times. I only make half attempts anymore. It's fun until it's not. Some days I decide to jump in the fray and others I just make jokes.

I got an email from Newsmax. Not left or right media. It said taxpayers have definitely been paying for these concerts since 2009. You are right. It should be interesting but will probably never know because
everything at the Whitehouse is secretive these days. I wouldnt believe anything that comes from CBS.
