I look at CEOs a bit differently than most people. For me, CEOs are to the rightful profit of investors as pedophiles are to the children of others. When an investor sticks with a company and bears the risk of that investment, a parasitic leach should not lavish himself upon the proceeds of a good upbringing.
When "the street" whines about regulation that is too restrictive, I like to think of a pedophile complaining about law enforcement that is too restrictive. That kind of whining most Americans know how to treat.
Profit belongs to the risk takers as surely as innocence belongs to the children.
