Unicycling Society of America votes down $40 million bonus for club president

Come on. We're the richest nation in the world.

It's embarrassing when you look at how we compensate the president of the Unicycling Society, when GoldmanSachs hands out these bonuses like water.

Personally, I think our president is doing a great job!!!

If not a bonus, let's give a big round of applause!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!******** WooooOOOoot

This is a good, sound, financial plan. The excesses in the USA coffers are ridiculous and we have our prez to thank for that. Why would it be voted down?

It's not so much embarrassing as worrying. Similar ridiculous bonuses paid in London too. But where does the money come from? At the bottom level, from the financial clients, the bank customers etc, whose money is invested by these people. A chunk of what little is left after Gordon Brown has had his thieving hands in your purse, you then effectively pay to these people.
UK taxes just announced to be at a record high...but was anyone surprised?

I don't get it. Our president (Unicycling Society) no longer even lives in the United States. Certainly there's some sort of legal issue there...

Why should it? It's the thought that counts.

One of these days I'll organise a NZ Unicycle weekend in Tasmania or Fiji.

No, taxes are pretty much always a record high, since they never go down and because of inflation.
