Is there HOPE????? From OVERpaid people…

February 28, 2014

What is this????  IS California beginning to WAKE UP????

Finally!!!!!  I am seeing signs that people are starting to notice the THIEVES, SNAKE OIL SALESMEN and SWINDLERS that are among us!!!

I love this story from The Blaze:

Residents Explode on Superintendent, School Board During Emergency Meeting: ‘This Is Crazy!’

This “explosion” of energy is concerning the same subject as this post of mine from a month ago.

The people being fleeced are finally demanding that the superintendent and the Board that gave him the money resign.

“I propose that there be a special recall election of this whole damn board, and a criminal investigation into the board for breach of fiduciary responsibility,” one man yelled during the emergency meeting held Tuesday.

I second the motion….THROW ALL OF THESE CHARLATANS IN JAIL….send an UNMISTAKABLE MESSAGE that these shenanigans will NO LONGER BE TOLERATED!!!  No I can only hope that these people do not lose focus and force the changes that are needed.

Are People OVERpaid???!!!!

California….the gift that keeps on giving….

I’m so disgusted, and a little hopeful, that I am not going to quote much from the article from Fox News:

California sheriff who says $276,000 pension not enough fuels push for reform

I do have to draw attention to one sentence late in the article that has nothing to do with the greedy, delusional, moron ex-sheriff that thinks $276,000 per year is not enough, to do nothing in retirement.

A police chief in Stockton left with a $204,000 annual pension after just eight months on the job.

Eight months???  Where do I sign up???

Sorry, I have to go throw up….

Are people OVERPAID??

Well, folks….California never gets the clue it appears, so let’s highlight another case……OR CASES!!!!

From the Daily Breeze:

Centinela Valley schools chief amassed $663,000 in compensation in 2013

Go ahead and read that again…..$663,000 for someone to “run” the schools in Centinela Valley…

Where is Centinela Valley you ask??  In Los Angeles County Califonia…ok well maybe that person deserves to have “an above average compensation”, (BUT $663,000??) I mean Los Angeles has a lot of people, there MUST be a lot of kids in these schools?? 

His total compensation even eclipsed that of John Deasy, superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District, the nation’s second-largest school system. Deasy’s base salary is $330,000 this school year and his gross compensation is just shy of $390,000, according to the LAUSD. But the district enrolls more than 650,000 students while Centinela Valley serves about 6,600.”

WTF!!!!  There are ONLY 6,600 students in these schools????  Jose Fernandez, this is FRAUD on an EPIC SCALE!!!

But the district enrolls more than 650,000 students while Centinela Valley serves about 6,600.

Seriously!!!??  Go ahead and re-read that last quote from the article……I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH JOHN DEASY’S SALARY!!!!  He ONLY made $390,000!!!  That is MORE THAN DOUBLE WHAT THE GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA GETS PAID!!!  The governor gets paid $165,288

This is DISGUSTING!!!  ANYONE that was involved with this salary “negotiation” needs to be “run out-of-town”!!!

At the beginning of this post I said there were “cases”….here is another quote from the article:

In an effort to make a fair comparison, the Daily Breeze obtained the same W-2 documents from the county for the superintendents of the Torrance, Redondo Beach and Palos Verdes Peninsula unified school districts. Total 2013 compensation amounted to $257,804 for George Mannon of Torrance Unified, $251,032 for Steven Keller of Redondo Beach Unified and $227,229 for Walker Williams of Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified.”

ALL more than the Governor???  Can anyone honestly tell me that these jobs are more important? more difficult?  require more education? or anything “more” than the Governor????  And I think he is OVERPAID too!!!

Are People Overpaid???

February 4, 2014

For this installment let’s go back to the great state of California…the one that is having SERIOUS budget problems…and if anyone is watching, is dominated by Democrats and the Liberals (just like Detroit, Chicago and New York City).

Who should we talk about today??  Someone, that is mandatory for society to operate, that the State Government should be paying whatever it takes to get the best person???  Nawwwwww, let’s talk about Lifeguards…..AGAIN.  Because that other post was ONLY WRITTEN 2.5 YEARS AGO, so no one, that is responsible and has authority, could have actually done anything yet!!!??  (sarc off)

From the Daily Caller:

“198 lifeguards in Los Angeles County made more than $100,000 each in taxpayer money in the year 2012.”

Got that???  Almost 200 people….that have no job worries, after they leave the beach, made almost $20 MILLION in one year!!!!  Where can I sign up, I’m relatively health, can swim, and look pretty good in a swim suit…

I’m not saying that the job they do is not important.  But, this job does not require a college degree.  I know, I know…they need to know CPR, and I’m sure there are other skills that I’m missing…..BUT SERIOUSLY????  Let’s compare what they make to a Firefighter salary….or a Police salary…

I can think of many jobs that should earn more than these “lifeguards”, that don’t!!!
