"New General Motors Co. CEO Daniel Akerson will get the same $9 million pay package as the man he replaced, Ed Whitacre.
Akerson, a former telecommunications industry and private equity executive, will receive $1.7 million in annual salary, $5.3 million in short-term stock payable over the next three years, and another $2 million in stock that's part of the company's long-term executive compensation plan.
The automaker, which is 60.8 percent owned by the U.S. government, disclosed the pay package in a filing on Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. It is identical to what the company disclosed for Whitacre in February.
Akerson also is on GM's board of directors, but will receive no compensation for his duties there, the filing said.
Akerson, GM's fourth CEO in less than two years, took over leadership of the company on Sept. 1.
Whitacre, CEO since December, said he stepped down because the company needed a chief executive who would be in charge long after it sells stock to the public. The sale, called an initial public offering, is expected in mid-November.
Whitacre, 68, a retired CEO of telecommunications giant AT&T Inc., said he didn't want to stay too long after the stock sale.
It was unclear how much of the $9 million pay package that Whitacre will receive for his roughly eight months as CEO. GM also disclosed that he will get $300,000 to remain on as chairman until the end of the year when Akerson takes over that role as well.
Like Whitacre, Akerson has worked as a top executive at major telecommunications companies, holding leadership posts at both MCI and Nextel. A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Akerson was appointed to GM's board by the government in July of last year after GM emerged from bankruptcy protection. He also led global buyouts for The Carlyle Group, a private equity firm.
GM's SEC filing said that Akerson agreed to the pay package after the government's pay czar approved it Wednesday. Pay czar Kenneth Feinberg stepped down on Friday and was replaced by Treasury Department lawyer Patricia Geoghegan. The pay czar is responsible for setting pay guidelines for top executives at the four companies still getting exceptional assistance from the government's $700 billion bailout fund."
"Fidel Castro told a visiting American journalist that Cuba's communist economic model doesn't work, a rare comment on domestic affairs from a man who has conspicuously steered clear of local issues since stepping down four years ago.
The fact that things are not working efficiently on this cash-strapped Caribbean island is hardly news. Fidel's brother Raul, the country's president, has said the same thing repeatedly. But the blunt assessment by the father of Cuba's 1959 revolution is sure to raise eyebrows.
Jeffrey Goldberg, a national correspondent for The Atlantic magazine, asked if Cuba's economic system was still worth exporting to other countries, and Castro replied: "The Cuban model doesn't even work for us anymore" Goldberg wrote Wednesday in a post on his Atlantic blog.
He said Castro made the comment casually over lunch following a long talk about the Middle East, and did not elaborate. The Cuban government had no immediate comment on Goldberg's account"

"With less than an hour before President Obama's scheduled speech, 75 seats remained empty in the recreation center at Cuyahoga Community College's Western Campus.
So organizers went around campus and recruited more students to fill the seats
Student Jennifer Rahal, of Parma Heights, whose class was canceled today, was working on her art work in the coffee shop in the basement of the building when the call went out for more guests.
After dropping off their stuff at a bag check, the newly invited guests cleared security and filed into the gym."

"Nonsense and ignorance spread by Glenn Beck
September 7 2010
By now, you have seen or heard the strange Glenn Beck on radio and TV shows or read one of his books. If you are scratching your head, go to the library and read Alexander Zaitchik's "Common Nonsense: Glenn Beck and the Triumph of Ignorance."
A short time ago, Beck started out as a none-too-successful morning DJ with a bare education who hadn't a thought about politics. He loved to party and was a mean tempered, self centered cocaine addict.
He developed a nostalgic vision of America (that never was) of his grandfather's day, sitting on a porch rocking chair, in a country, "the heartland," with a relatively small government and about 4 million white people.
There were no "evil progressives" leaving one to wonder how slavery ended or child labor, or, who brought about Social Security or the right of women to vote, among other things.
Glenn Beck expresses a strange populist, paranoic, conspiratorial vision of a world divided into ‘them' and ‘us'. Such beliefs, along with delusions of grandeur, righteousness, and self importance, power, emotional instability (likely bipolar) have been seen by those who have worked closely with him.
He is well known for using the airwaves to humiliate people personally. He has always had bursts of anger and difficult relationships, needing constant affirmation and attention. Kind of fits into the drug addict's persona. (my comment)
One of Beck's most infamous incidents was when a friend's wife was on the phone just after having had a miscarriage, and he put her on the open mic and humiliated her.
He moved into the spotlight when regulations were loosened and a few corporations took over most of the radio and TV news and talk channels. He began to talk politics, about which, he admitted, he knew nothing.
When he started picking up on the ACORN situation he would not let go, giving it negative publicity and eventually pushing till ACORN was defunded of its few million dollars. Of course he never talks of Phizer, which was fined billions for Medicaid fraud, or of military contractors' fraud in the billions. He was getting a growing audience and was rallying for far-right ideology. His humor was always berating the ‘elite' educated and he was the champion of the ordinary person. His programs attracted millions of listeners, distrustful of big government while he was protective of big corporations.
When he converted to the Mormon faith, he ended a lifetime of drugs and picked up the "testimonial" tears he is so famous for.
He quickly identified with the most fringe philosophical elements of the Mormon faith in the person of Cleon Skousen. Skousen raged against the intellectual elite, called black children "pickininies," and the slave owners, "victims."
Beck made Skousen's works, which have been called a "joke" by Zaitchik, required reading for his followers. From oblivion, and from the dust heap they are now on the best seller list along with Beck's own books.
Beck cries out, "We need to rescue our Constitution and go back to the founders," despite that the constitution was written as a secular document with no religious references.
The constant contradictions matter little in Beck's books such as "Common Sense," a sort of parody on Thomas Paine's famous pamphlet of the same name that helped spark the American Revolution.
Beck is thrilled with his following, lack of truth notwithstanding. Beck shouts support for Wall Street, which he calls the "victim."
Beck tries to isolate the urban poor and black people from the ‘heartland'. He called Katrina victims "scumbags" and unemployed people, "unamerican ." (my comment)
He sees the corporations involved in the government getting bigger but calls for a world which would leave corporate power free to pollute air, water, and land. He would end government regulations protecting worker safety, food, and the environment and denies global warming.
He supports corporations that support him but talks angrily against corporations that supported Obama or that dropped advertizing on his program when he became very offensive and a huge movement was launched against him by Moveon.
Beck is making millions leading his movement to "take the government back" From whom? The first black American president!
Such racist (although he denies that he is racist), paranoid, conspiracy theorists have existed before in times of hardship. Zaitchik feels that the Beck phenomenon is temporary due to "its operatic nostalgia, opiate history, and tin can Orwellian imagination."
My fear is that when Beck sells so much untruth and hate and lies to a largely fringe element that is armed, we cannot brush it off so easily. His divisive use of people and incitement has not gone unnoticed by Jews and others knowledgeable of the rise of Hitler Germany."

"George Grier said he had to use his rifle on Sunday night to stop what he thought was going to be an invasion of his Uniondale home by a gang he thought might have been the vicious “MS-13.” He said the whole deal happened as he was about to drive his cousin home.
“I went around and went into the house, ran upstairs and told my wife to call the police. I get the gun and I go outside and I come into the doorway and now, by this time, they are in the driveway, back here near the house. I tell them, you know, ‘Can you please leave?’ Grier said.
Grier said the five men dared him to use the gun; and that their shouts brought another larger group of gang members in front of his house.
“He starts threatening my family, my life. ‘Oh you’re dead. I’m gonna kill your family and your babies. You’re dead.’ So when he says that, 20 others guys come rushing around the corner. And so I fired four warning shots into the grass,” Grier said.
Grier was later arrested. John Lewis is Grier’s attorney."

"Soros and the foundation left have launched a website designed to go after the growing Tea Party movement. Teapartytracker.org will post video interviews and blog entries gathered by folks on the false left who never grow weary of demonstrating their outrage over the very idea of a grassroots political effort overthrowing establishment Democrats and Republicans in the district of corporate criminals.
Teapartytracker.org will be sponsored by the NAACP, Think Progress, New Left Media and Media Matters for America. Think Progress is a George Soros operation connected to John Podesta’s Center for American Progress. Podesta is Clinton’s former chief of staff. Media Matters for America is the brainchild of a MoveOn consultant and Podesta’s Center for American Progress. Soros is a major supporter of MoveOn."

Daniel Boone's Home
The Historic Daniel Boone Home and Boonesfield Village is a registered National Historic Site located in the Heart of Missouri Wine Country, Defiance, Missouri. The Boone Home, nearly 200 years old, is large even by today's standards. It rises four stories with limestone walls 2 ½ feet thick and a kitchen in what most would consider would be the basement.
The Daniel Boone home overlooks the Boonesfield Village which is comprised of over a dozen 19th century buildings including the Old Peace Chapel, grist mill, schoolhouse, and carpenter’s shop. Each building has been moved to the site from within 50 miles of the local area. The buildings offer visitors a glimpse into life as a frontiersman and the chance to witness the hard work and dedication these men and women possessed.
Missouri Wine Country
Missouri has a storied history of wine-making that dates back to the 1850s. Missouri's wine industry at one time was one of the most sophisticated in the world... until Prohibition brought it to a grinding halt in the 1920s. Thankfully, the rebirth of Missouri wine began in the 1960s, and today the future has never looked brighter for Missouri wine lovers.
Our wineries have been winning national acclaim for years, in all types of red and white varietals. Missouri is widely recognized as the leading producer of excellent Norton wine, which, if you don't already know, is a powerhouse of red wine that is every bit as lush and robust as Zinfandel. It's also the state grape of Missouri. And keep an eye on Vignoles. It's fast becoming an elegant white wine that matches Sauvignon Blanc for tart, dry white wines that pair magically with spicy dishes.
You've heard all about wine country, no doubt. But what is wine country, exactly? It's where the wineries and vineyards are located, of course; but we say it's also the many quaint towns with hundreds of bed and breakfasts, charming restaurants, boutique shops, and many more recreational opportunities that make for a relaxing getaway that's unique to Missouri.
Missouri wine country is in Hermann and in Augusta but it's also anywhere there is a winery. And there are wineries all across Missouri, from Rocheport, near Columbia, to the southeast, where several wineries have sprouted near the historic town of Sainte Genevieve on the banks of the Mississippi.
St. Louis Pirate Fest
The town of Fort Royal, Martinique; is the "setting" for the St. Louis Pirate Fest.
France has a king, England has a king. Why shouldn't pirates have a king?
It's the Golden Age of Piracy, and in the village of Fort Royal on the island of Martinique, pirates have gathered to choose a Pirate King. Of course, this is news to the Governor, who is courting the favors of the French King, Louis, in hopes of receiving a title and royal appointment.
The three lead contenders for the title of pirate king have decided that the decision should be based on "friendly" competition. Suddenly everyone is caught up in the contests -- even the ladies of the St. Clair Gentleman's Club and the local religious order!
Pirates are pirates, and rules -- well, guidelines, really -- are broken as the day's competition comes to a head. And how will the governor react when he finds out that pirates are trying to elect one of their own to leadership, right under his nose?
Come out and join the fun! And every hour, on the hour, raise your mug of grog to the health of the king. Which king? Who cares? It's a festival!
