much less since his job requires much less training to do. Let's face it, the job market is supply and demand... there are tens of thousands of dudes capable of becoming soldiers, only a handful are smart enough to become bankers...

Alright, I hate to bring logic into this, but does anyone here seriously think the government has the money to pay soldiers the amount Wall St. guys get?
and the Wall St. guys get there pay based on standards and sucessfulness (not a word, but couldn't come up with a real one)

OORAH! I've worked longer shifts on "special projects" and I haven't seen an eighth of the money those W.St.B. panzies make. These guys put their lives on the line for them and make even less. What the heck?

That about sums it. Then they forget about out nations motto.. The same one written in bronze resting at the feet of our Lady Liberty. (Well most people have) The worst part is that there are guys like Romney who says he knows what it's like... Um... Yeah living in a nice house never having to actually work tell me how hard your life was. I wish that there were enough people who still care enough to save our country. Too bad kids these days are concerned with swag and not in education. They grow up to be the same people who vote the jokers in who allow this corrupt system. Then complain instead of doing something. Welcome to America...

"never having to actually work"

The guy worked himself up from being a management consultant to being Vice President. Then he started another company. You really think he did no work and his company just magically became successful?

Also, you show no respect for Romney's line of work, then you complain about how kids aren't getting enough education. So if someone doesn't get an education then dig ditches for 16 hours a day they're not doing "actual work"?

Romney didn't earn anything he used his father to get ahead... Common knowledge and most used line against him. Truth hurts.

Romney knows nothing about the school systems or about the common man. He is too deluded and spits out lines that only hurt his chances. At the moment he is down 12% in comparison to Obama (I don't like him either, but I prefer him)

Your last argument is invalid and has nothing to do with my point. Here in America we get about 13 years of education before being sent off on our way. Although very inadequate it is still better then nothing. There are two types of education one set up for those with money (Romney) and those without (the 99%) If you don't believe what i'm about to say then you should research this for yourself. The system is set up to let people fail. They will always need trench diggers and fast food chefs. It's why people are unhappy. However I will add that sometimes people do it to themselves.

TL:DR; Romney is just in it for the 1% Even his website if you read it carefully says it as plain as the day. All you have to do is read and look at the way he tries to hide his message in his wording.

Okay, some of this stuff is really ignorant, which probably isn't your fault because you probably don't have enough life experiences to know better.

First, Romney could have tried to leverage his fathers career and gone into the auto industry, but he chose not to and went in his own direction. Romney went to school, graduated as valedictorian, then went to Harvard, where he earned a joint MBA/JD (that's an advanced degree in both business and law). He graduated at the top of his class in both schools, becoming a Baker scholar. After school, he joined a management consultant firm in Boston, nowhere near Michigan. Then he joined another management consultant firm, Bain & Company, that takes a real hands on approach. He worked himself up to Vice President, then was asked to start a private equity company. While CEO of Bain Capital he basically invented a new way of doing business. He leveraged the management expertise they already had to start buying struggling companies which they would turn around. That's how he made his millions - basically inventing a new type of business.

The inheritance he received from his father he donated to create an entrepreneur center in his father's name.

Also, he's not down by 12% - that's way off. In the two most serious polls, the two that poll daily, he's down by 2% and even. In the RCP poll average he's down by 3.7%. Plus in most of those polls they oversample democrats (sometimes by a large margin).

The truth is in America you can go to whatever school you want to as long as you do well enough to get in. Anyone can take out loans and get grants to cover their tuition. Honestly though, there's not as much difference between the schools as far as education is concerned as people like to believe.

Someone is a proud republican. Too bad your information is not valid at all. That's just sounds like something you'd hear off fox. Go ahead thumb me down for accurate information. Like it would change the facts. I know the background of Romney and that's the main reason I don't like him.

Do as you will arguing with someone on the internet even when the facts are out there is like arguing with a donkey. You may win... but you still look silly.

You have no information you only have opinion. I'm not sure you know what the word information means. Or the words valid, accurate, or facts.

Also I'm not the one thumbing you down.

I wasn't referring to you on the thumbs.

My sources are, wiki, Mitt Romney's Website, John Stewart, Stephen Colbert, press conferences that i've sat through, and a bit of google work. Where do you get your information? Fox?

here, the only overtime is when we work more than 40 hours per week, and we get 8+ hour shifts pretty often, though more than 10 hours in one shift is pretty rare

I'm thinking the A-85 will have a 3rd engine vertical the other two and a FAR bigger payload. Which is why I'm becoming an Aerospace Engineer to design just such a monster.

That guy (and others like him) are priceless. That's why we give them our utmost respect and we do whatever we can for them.

Self-worth is assessed in more than just salary.

Because what you "deserve" isn't about how many hours you put in, it's about other factors you contribute as well (risk, innovation, capital, responsibility etc.), most of which nobody on this website has any concept of.

P.S. Anyone who thinks that people get what they "deserve" is a moron, as are the people who think they or the government or whoever should enforce people getting the salaries they "deserve" rather than the ones that they get as a result of voluntary economic decisions by themselves, their employers and the consumers.

OPs content was saying about how Wall Street bankers are overpaid and they think that because they work long, they deserve it, and OP was saying that soldiers (who work for way longer than that, and have so many risks like you said) are underpaid and deserve the bankers wages more than they do

salary isnt based on working hours alone. The person that told you that probably mentioned it in his reasoning of why they make so much, but it's not the sole reason, so the "therefore..." is all invalid.

they dont get paid that much cause of the amount of hours they work lol. they get paid that much cause they're good enough at their job which is crucial to their companies to be more or less irreplaceable. Soldiers arent irreplaceable so they get paid less, too little imo but thats not the point, even though they're risking their life and work around the clock.
