    Wow, good news. I stayed out of OXY when it was below 80 because I figured this battle was going to take longer.

    Also, his golden parachute included $2.2 million per year in security expenses... who needs that except a crimelord.

    During Irani's CEO reign he saw the company flat for 10 years then when oil started to rise in 2000 it went up about 8x (through very little effort of his just natural earnings with the most important rare commodity being the earner). He made about $billion in the last 10 years plus owns a $billion more in OXY stock. He also donated over $50,000 to the GOP in 2012. (repost after removing derogatory remark about the poor little man).
