Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Justice Does Not Exist

Headlines like this show there is little hope for justice in the world.

Hayward's 'Golden Parachute' Is Relatively Modest

The details of his "modest" parachute:

If he leaves the company, he stands to walk away with a compensation package that includes about $1.5 million in salary and a pension worth $17 million. That will seem like an unforgivable sum to many people. But as "golden parachutes" go, his deal is actually quite modest.

The phrase "go to jail, don't pass go, don't collect 200 dollars" comes to mind. I guess in the corporate world, punishment is not getting as much money as you should have gotten. This is really fucked up, how did we get to this?*

*Rhetorical question, I know the answer to that question: conservatism brainwashing society into thinking that this is "moral."
