Are People OVERPAID?

February 16, 2015

This one comes from the great state of New York.  This makes me so frustrated that I am not going to write much about it.

Here is a link to the article:

Nearly  5,000 teachers cashing in on six-figure pensions” – New York Post

And here are some relevant quotes from the article:

More than 4,100 retired educators received six-figure pensions in 2013.” (That means AT LEAST $100,000.  The article states that there are 4,800 people eligible for these pensions, as of 2014.)

That includes pension king, Edgar McManus, 90, a retired Queens College history professor who took in $561,286 last year, and Madeleine Brennan, 88, who raked in $417,466 last year.”

More than a dozen OTHER RETIREES receive more than $200,000 per year.”

As a point of reference the Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, you know, the guy responsible for ALL the government of the city, is paid $225,000.

Do you think these school teachers should be “earning” more than the mayor…..IN RETIREMENT??

Should they receive more than $100,000?

The EPA and Carbon Dioxide

February 11, 2015

Almost 6 YEARS ago, I wrote about the Obama administration and their Environmental Protection Agency (the EPA) trying to limit YOUR breathing.  At the time I received multiple comments, wondering if I truly believed what I was saying, being accused of being “ridiculous”, etc.

Well, it appears that this has finally made it to the United States Senate.  You know…………those crazy conspiracy theorists!!!

EPA Challenged for Calling CO2 Pollution – Daily Caller

You can say that the Daily Caller is a conservative source but you cannot deny that they are holding the hearings in the Senate.

If what I say is untrue, why are they now calling it “Carbon Pollution”?

I wonder if I am still ridiculous??

I still don’t trust them, and they have done NOTHING in the last 6 years to gain that trust!!!!!

Can anyone say “if you like your doctor, you can keep, your doctor” or “this will save every family $2,500 per year”?
