No I just think it's pretty funny that a guy that is anti-corporation and anti CEO makes more than a lot of CEOs and has a better retirement than most of them too.

I'd like to see some facts to back that up. I just Googled and it looks like it isn't even close.

Really?

If you are a "CEO" and making less than my friends who work FOR CEO's -- then you probably shouldn't parade around calling yourself a CEO and use "entrepreneur" instead.

Seriously, $200,000 a year is peanuts people in the professional world. Most of my neighbors each make that in the household, for a combined house income of $400,000.

And I bought an HD-DVD player, thinking Blu-Ray wouldn't take off.



PS -- I just bought a new (used) cassette boom box from the late 80's on ebay. Yea baby, time for some of that good old magnetic tape hiss!

It makes him look like a guy who can't handle money but thinks he can solve all our economic woes, while simultaneously knowing that he is sitting on a comfy government retirement plan while rail against the private sector that is in dire straights partially because of the government pensions and perks, and claim that 'the system' is rigged while profiting from it.

In other words it makes him look like the selfish, lying, worthless, ignorant, big-government socialist bum that he is.

He's in his 70's, sounds like he invested and put his own money away in a smart way, and honestly there are people I know that are engineers, programmers, and IT people that make more than $71,000 a year. 

Sounds like he has been saving it up to share with someone that has less.
How about me?

Man that's awesome, when are you going to tell them that they don't deserve their money and that you think the govt should take 90% of it?

Simple metaphor. As long as he's been in gov't he could have gotten filthy rich but went with his ethics.




See above


So because he invested in a retirement fund with his pretty modest salary especially when compared to other candidates he's got something to hide? That's just as bad as when they accused him of shady business hiring his family to assist with his campaign.

1) He has a retirement fund in the first place, and claims he understands other people's financial problems.
2) HIS WIFE handles the money, proving even more that Bernie is an economic illiterate
3) Modest salary? Really?

Making 6 figures is trivial. If you're not doing so within 3 years out of college you're either bad at your job, failed to pick a lucrative career, are under employed like most of the country, or are in a low cost of living area.

Oh give me a break with that I don't even know that many people that make that much money.

A few IT guys and an engineer buddy of mine that's it.

Like I said, most people are either under employed, or didn't pick lucrative careers. There also seems to be a misconception that a bachelors degree is all a person needs. A bachelors these days is worth less than a HS diploma 30 years ago. Bachelors degrees only get you through an HR filter, they're literally the minimum required effort. Independent side projects, experience, and a masters or a second bachelors are all required if you actually care about making a good salary.

Where did I say at 24? An appropriate education/skill base takes much longer than that.
