    Judges get paid too much!

    Federal judges are complaining that they should get paid more.

    Well, since they are not supporting the rights of the innocent, I think they get paid more than enough (at more than 3 times the national median wage).

    Hey Wayne,

    Don't forget, CEO's are making substantially more money, and their role in the whole scheme of things pales in comparison to our judicial system. The same goes for athletes and performers.

    Regards, hope your Christmas and New Year were as great as mine,

    They traded the opportunity to earn whatever the market would bear for the security of a lifetime job with all the perks that come with the job.

    Not many people have that kind of security.

    It's a fair trade.

    We definitely agree on their motivation. I think we might agree on their letting defenseless babies be aborted as being morally inexcusable.

    These judges are among the top legal minds in the country. They could p-robably get twice as much working for a private law firm. They deserve everything we pay them and more. Remember, you get what you pay for.

    Your pastor is proud of you and your choice to pay him based upon the impact (Paul said double pay) that he makes on eternity . . .

    You do get what you pay for.

    If it's big money they want, then let them be CEO's, athletes, or performers, and have the contempt many (including myself) have for them and their ridiculous salaries and extras. If it's power they lust after, they have it as judges; we have a dictatorship of the judicial branch of government because that is the branch which tells the other 2, and itself, what its powers are.
