Congratulations to the First Lady…or should the Congratulations go to Mr. President Obama Again??

February 21, 2013

Back in August of 2011 I gave a Congratulations to “The One”, for reducing the flow of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS from the Southern Border.  In that post I said:

Congratulations Mr. President, you have done it.

You have made America so much like the rest of the third world (poorer, unemployed, desperate, hopeless, etc.) that NO ONE wants to come here any more!!!

It looks like I will have to Congratulate Him once again, although the White House is trying to say that it is because of “all the efforts” of the First Lady Michelle Obama.  At this point I do not think it is her “fault”.  Apparently, if we are to trust ANY NUMBERS from the “government propagandists statisticians”, the number of children in this country that are obese is falling.  The White House is saying:

White House declares: First lady has reduced childhood obesity rates” – Daily Caller

I think this is TOTALLY UNFAIR and OVERLOOKS THE CONTRIBUTIONS of her husband, Barack Obama, in accomplishing this feat.

Congratulations Mr. President you have done something again.

By continuing your idiotic economic policies; over-regulation, demonizing business, assaulting capitalism, reducing the percentage of Americans in the work force, stopping businesses from starting, increasing inflation, giving OUR money to YOUR cronies, etc., you are reducing the amount of food that people can afford to buy.  You are FORCING America to go on a DIET, because many cannot afford to feed themselves.  Congratulations for putting, and keeping, 48 MILLION AMERICANS ON FOODSTAMPS, and counting.  Keep up the “good work”!!  NOT!!

Are People Overpaid??

February 20, 2013

I love California……because it is the gift that keeps on giving.  In the past I have written many posts about some people’s pay, you can find some of them here, here, here, here, here, and here.  If you want more, search through my archives, there are more.

Today I read this article from the San Francisco Chronicle:

752 City Workers Paid More Than the Governor

If you don’t want to read the article, the Headline pretty much says it all.  The Governor of California is in charge of the ENTIRE STATE of California, the most you can be responsible for if you are a “CITY of San Francisco ‘worker'” is the CIty of San Francisco!!!  Can we all agree that the Governor has MORE RESPONSIBILITIES???

Governor Jerry Brown earns a salary of $173,987 per year. as an aside, considering the state of CAlifornia and it’s finances, this may be WAY TOO MUCH, considering he is in charge.  Does anyone feel that a city worker on San Francisco deserves to earn more than the Governor??

Does anyone think that it is ironic, that most of my “Overpaid” subjects come from California, New York, and Illinois…..the states with the WORST FINANCIAL SITUATIONS??

Does anyone want to wager whether these “workers” belong to a union??

The people that set these salaries need to be FIRED!!!

Chicago’s “Top Cop”, Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy???

February 19, 2013

Sometimes the lack of thought and critical thinking in America is truly ASTOUNDING!!!

Today, I read an article containing comments from the POLICE SUPERINTENDENT of the 3RD LARGEST MUNICIPAL POLICE FORCE IN THE USA.  I know that New York City is the largest, and I believe that Los Angeles is the second largest (but I can’t guarantee it).  So this guy, Garry McCarthy, is in charge of the police department that is overseeing the MURDER CAPITAL OF THE USA.  I want everyone to understand who this guy is and what HIS JOB IS.  He is in charge of the Police Force.  He tells Chicago’s Finest what to do and how to do it.  I want to make sure that everyone understands that I AM NOT DISPARAGING the police officers or the job that they try and do.  Most police officers are trying to do the right thing and protect the citizens under their care.  When I say most, I suspect that the percentage is in the high 90% range.  Yes there are “bad cops” and when they are found they are hopefully punished.  But, let’s get back to the comments from Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy.

Here is the article from Fox News.

Chicago’s top cop likens gun lobby’s influence to corruption

and here is a quote:

““When people say concealed carry, I say Trayvon Martin,” McCarthy said, referring to the Florida teen who was shot and killed last February by a neighborhood watch volunteer, sparking controversy across the country. “I say Trayvon Martin because the answer to guns is not more guns, and just simply putting guns in people’s hands is going to lead to more tragedy.”

I have a couple points that I would like to make about this quote.

     1.  No where in the article, or ANY OF THE GUN CONTROL MEASURES THAT HE IS ADVOCATING, is “concealed carry” mentioned!!  No one has proposed ANY MORE RESTRICTIONS ON CHICAGO’S CONCEALED CARRY LAWS!!!  IF Mr McCarthy thinks that these laws should be changed, then he should propose something.  Note to Mr. McCarthy:  This is called a non-sequitur.

     2.  I agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Garry McCarthy, but he may not like the reason that I agree.  I would like to ask “THE POLICE SUPERINTENDENT” if he knows ANYTHING ABOUT THE LAWS OF THE USA, which are a VITAL PART OF HIS JOB DESCRIPTION?  For instance, suspects, or the accused, are PRESUMED INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT, BY A JURY OF HIS PEERS!!!  I have not seen ANYTHING that says George Zimmerman has been found guilty, has he?  Let me start this a different way.  What if, George Zimmerman is found to have DEFENDED HIMSELF FROM A VICIOUS ATTACK, and that IF he did NOT have a weapon with him on that night to PROTECT HIMSELF, he would likely not be with us anymore, because he would have been brutally beaten to death by a punk kid??  What would Mr. McCarthy say about “concealed carry” then?  Is he going to RETRACT ALL OF HIS STUPID COMMENTS??

     3.  Also, I would like to ask Mr. McCarthy, if this is the type of thought that he WANTS from his police force??  If so, he NEEDS TO REMOVED FROM THIS POSITION IMMEDIATELY!!

     4.  Just as an observation, I think that from all the evidence of MURDER in Chicago DAILY, that Mr. McCarthy is a complete FAILURE and should be fired with cause.  Note to Mr. McCarthy: there are 1,000’s of cities in this country that have LESS RESTRICTIVE gun laws than Chicago, and they seem to not have your issues.  I would venture that the reason IS because they have LESS RESTRICTIVE GUN LAWS, not more restrictive.

and finally one more quote from Mr. McCarthy and then my question:

McCarthy backs banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, requiring background checks for anyone who buys a gun, mandatory reporting of the sale, transfer, loss or theft of a gun and mandatory minimum prison sentences for people convicted of illegally possessing a gun.”

Would ANY OF THOSE NEW “LAWS” stop the rampant MURDER in the City that he has sworn to protect?? 

I think that the answer to the question is a resounding NO, let me know what you think.
