They gave us a republic...:: Why did they have to make me choose?

They gave us a republic...:: Why did they have to make me choose?

I love bluegirl: she gets right to the heart of the matter.

And while we're making demands that Komen change the way they do business, they can retire the entire overpaid executive staff and board, without golden parachutes, and the new executives and directors can be paid a reasonable salary that the average American would be happy to have. Say, $75k with benefits and an expense account.

The people running the charity should make about the same as the average individual contributor.

In fact, that's a pretty good "New Rule" - maybe even Maher-worthy: "We need a new rule. If a non-profit organization pays it's executives enough that they are 1%-ers based on that salary alone, they automatically lose non-profit status."
