Falling American Empire, More Sequester Wolf Cries, Mexican Cartel Invasion And North Korean Threat Continues: Monday Morning News Roundup 4-1-2013

April 1, 2013 by  

Here is a collection of some of the stories that Personal Liberty staffers will be keeping an eye on throughout the day. Click the links for the full stories.

  • The head of Iran’s Basij forces claimed Sunday that 2013 will be the year that the “American empire” meets its demise.


  • Though most rational Americans realize that the miniscule sequester cuts are having little impact on the United States, Democratic lawmakers are still carrying on about the devastating impacts. Now, the big spenders on the left are warning of coke-addled gangsters taking over the streets, prison riots and terror attacks.





  • President Barack Obama, in a moment of fleeting clarity, said Monday that he would adhere to a literal interpretation of the U.S. Constitution for the remainder of his tenure in the Oval office. That means he will be reversing all unConstitutional legislation put into place under his watch. That is, of course, an April fool’s.

    How about this story? He has earned every penny right? Amazing what happens when you own the game isn’t it? How mucxh does this guy get when he gets fired? Now think about how much you get if you lose your job?

    Another example of the wealthy bleeding this country dry why the avg person gets the shaft.

    How much longer do you want to tolerate big money in the politcal arena?


    George Paz, president, chairman and CEO of Express Scripts Holding Co., received a total compensation package of nearly $12.8 million in 2012, up 50 percent from 2011.

    His 2012 compensation was comprised of a $1.2 million salary, $4.8 million in stock awards, $3.2 million in option awards, $3.4 million in a non-equity bonus and $86,067 in all other compensation, according to a proxy statement filed today. The “other compensation” included a $73,567 company contribution to an executive deferred compensation plan and a $12,500 401(k) match.

    Paz and the other named executives did not receive the non-equity bonus in 2011 because the company didn’t hit the bonus plan’s targets for earnings per share or EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization). Several other executives received stock bonuses tied to the closing of Express Scripts’ $29 billion acquisition of Medco Health Solutions in April 2012, however Paz did not.

    Other top Express Scripts executives’ 2012 compensation was as follows:
    Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Jeffrey Hall received $5.2 million in total compensation, up 79 percent from 2011.
    Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing Ed Ignaczak received $4.4 million in total compensation, up 86 percent from 2011.
    Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Patrick McNamee received $4.4 million in total compensation, up 85 percent from 2011.
    Executive Vice President and General Counsel Keith Ebling received $3.8 million, up 74 percent from 2011.

    Express Scripts Holding (Nasdaq: ESRX), the nation’s largest pharmacy benefit manager, reported net income of $1.33 billion on revenue of $93.86 billion in 2012.
