    Damn straight...every CEO who loses $100M for his company should get his $15M bonus/share offering. Can't understand why either our kids these days should feel entitled to be kept in the lap of luxury for showing up and breathing in the morning or other continents resenting us for being so gluttonous.

    I can watch a game and enjoy it, but can't say I follow it.

    Here is the empirically relevant point in this: these bonuses are contractual, and area a part of the overall compensation package agreed to by the board of directors in the executive contracts. None of the company execs "lost money for their company." If you have some sort of financial statement that would indicate that some exec has gotten a bonus outside the proscribed benefit agreement, I would be happy to look at it.

    Corollary to philosophical fact: what you get in life is most often by agreement with other parties to whom you are beholden. When you receive a benefit WITHOUT an agreement or being beholden, you have the culture of entitlement that is now plaguing the US. When folks receive a benefit for say, breathing, that is not a reflection of a free people, but the jack boot of a dictator hoping to retain power.
