    I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world
    He is implying that if they were paid more they would do a decent job? HAH
    That's like saying that if we throw more hundreds of millions of dollars at welfare programs we won't have any more poor people.

    At this moment in time if I screamed as loud as I feel like doing you would all hear me loud and clear - wherever you are!

    If they were paid based on performance, they wouldn't make a dime - in fact they'd have to pay in.

The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    He's just mad that Moochelle didn't invite him to ride along on the million dollar China trip.

    Typical democrat strategy when there is a problem just throw more money at it.

    Gravy train coming to an end. He now has to pay for a haircut and parking and can't charge dinners to the people of Virginia. May a 1001 camel ant fester in his left nostril. Area move four feet for printability.

    The man is an idiot, all you have to do is look at his voting record to realize it.

    I can think of a couple things I'd be willing to throw those people. In the spring hereabouts farmers spray it on the fields. The smell is enough to gag a maggot. The second item they'd like even less.
    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    How can they be underpaid, after all they vote and approve their own pay raises. Just more manure.jpg

    Actually they have to vote to not get a raise.
