Default 10 Ways to Kill a CEO

So I've heard that there is a big concern among the CEOs who screwed the nation and helped put us in this bad position. Everyone has seen Obama speaking out against AIG, who recently gave a large chunk of their bailout money as bonuses to the execs that caused all their problems.

Well, the rationale for this, and can I just say I find this staggering, is that the people who got us into this mess did so in such a complicated and intricate way that they are the only ones who can get us out. Because of that, they are asking for more money to undo what they did. I'm pretty sure Saturn doesn't actually have any moons, those are just the balls of bank CEOs. Amazing.

Well, since the Bernie Madoffwithyourmoney thing went down, people are more than just a little outraged about getting swindled. And there are a lot of crazy people out there who got swindled. Apparently, people are making death threats to the CEOs and their families. There is some hesitation to release their names to the public for fear that their lives will be endangered. Can I just be the first person here to play my tiny violin?

Maybe it is time that people who are in the top 1% of money makers start to feel a little concern that their unethical methods of hording money and bringing poverty to thousands of Americans might actually have repercussions. It seems as if they do whatever they can to make money without any concerns about the rest of the world. I think they need to learn that they are not untouchable just because they are rich. I don't feel bad that they fear for their lives. While I don't personally want to see any of them murdered, I get a great satisfaction from them sweating and trembling in front of a panel while someone reads a random note about strangling bank managers with piano wire.

Do you think they should have their names released? I like the idea of teaching them a lesson, but if people start killing CEOs, it could make things worse than they already are...

The CEO's names should be a matter of public record. It wouldn't be too hard to figure out who they are.

I think what they are considering is not releasing the names and locations of those who will be under scrutiny. A person who just lost everything to foreclosure might like to know when and where their favorite CEO is going to be making a public appearance.

Still, I enjoy watching them sweat.

Well, I would never expect them to give the location of a person. Finding out who the executive group is shouldn't be hard. Determining if they got a bonus or not is probably a different story. Though I bet it wouldn't be impossible to figure out who was "eligible".

Damn right they should be sweating.

The solution should be simple...if you receive public money, it has to be a matter of public record. If you don't want your receipt of public money to be a public record, give the money back.

As for the geniuses who got us into this mess being the only ones smart enought to get us out...don't believe that one for a second.

its listed on their company websites. CEO info is not hard to find

to throw gas on the fire, here is the 2008 AIG employee retention (aka bonus plan and how to earn) plan.

They didn't let it, they made it. They did what they did out of greed, not ignorance. The real problem is that they are the only ones who can untie the noose they put around our neck. Now they want extra money and protection before they agree to do it. I don't get that.

You know Flick, your title is misleading. It preludes that in this thread, there will be a list of 10 different ways to kill a CEO. You are misleading us Flick, I thought you were better than that... We all know you have got at least one sadistic bone in your body, now hold true to your thread's title. lol

I thought about that, but "Death By Papercuts from 100 Dollar Bills" was as far as I got.
