Random Days

Beautiful day for a drive up the mountain

Baked some bread today and it came out really well.  The blotchy look comes from melted butter on the crust.

And the Cactus flowers keep coming in like crazy

There Is Currently No Shortage Of Corporate Profits

“…There is currently no shortage of corporate profits or excessive executive compensation to explain away the failure of the private sector to create jobs. On the contrary, as The New York Times reports, “In the fourth quarter, profits at American businesses were up an astounding 29.2 percent, the fastest growth in more than 60 years. Collectively, American corporations logged profits at an annual rate of $1.678 trillion.” And to add insult to injury, the top executives, who seem unable or unwilling to create jobs or adequately reward their workers, have increased their own compensation by a whopping 12 percent over the previous year, setting the median pay at $9.6 million per year for those in control of the leading 200 companies. The Times adds that “C.E.O. pay is also on the rise again at companies like Capital One and Goldman Sachs, which survived the economic storm with the help of all of those taxpayer-financed bailouts.”  (My bold & underline emphasis.)

Yes sir, it’s the top 1% of American elite against the rest of us…and they are definitely winning.
