Are people OVERPAID??

June 9, 2011

Previously, I have written about certain salaries in the United States.  For another example, let’s visit New York, and from the New York Post.

“The Syosset Central School District, which serves an enclave of gated communities, ritzy eateries and children’s boutiques…”

The Superintendent earns…?

“The school superintendent, Carole Hankin — who oversees 6,687 kids in 10 schools — is the highest-paid in the state with $506,322 in total compensation. She collects a $386,868 salary, $67,454 in fringe benefits and $52,000 in retirement funds and expenses including use of a “late model car,” plus gas.”

That $386,868 salary is less than $14,000 less than the President of the United States!!  You know, that guy responsible for 300 Million American’s safety, the economy, Government Motors, the unions, the social organizers, EVERYONE”S health care, etc.  Mrs. Hankin is only responsible for LESS than 7,000 kids!

But wait, that’s not all…If you buy right now…you will also get..

$382,382: Jeffrey Streitman, deputy superintendent
$238,221: Joseph LaMelza, assistant superintendent
$145,114: Dean Strohmayer, gym teacher
$129,818: Jeffrey Rozran, English teacher”

$145,114!!  For a GYM teacher!!  Are you kidding me??

This is the CRAP that has to STOP!!

Worse timeS than these??

November 8, 2010

I love this article from FoxNews where they are quoting an interview by CBS 60 minutes of The One.

Here is only one quote of the President from the interview:

“I am constantly reminded that we have been through worse times than these, and we’ve always come out on top,” he said. “And I’m positive that the same thing is going to happen this time.” (emphasis mine)

Well, I will ask a slightly different question this time.  WHEN exactly, Mr. President, besides the Great Depression, were “times worse” than NOW??  As I have stated before here, YOU said that “we are in the worst recession since the Great Depression,” Obama said on ABC. (My emphasis)”

So, which is it Mr. President??  Is this the worst since the Great Depression or isn’t it?  I suppose that this is just like you did not mean to say that some Americans are enemies.  Not the ones that are actually trying to kill us, but the “opponents” to YOUR policies.  I am awaiting your clarification, Mr. President.

No Specific Ideas…

September 21, 2010

Today, the Anointed One “claimed” that the “Tea Party” does not have any SPECIFIC IDEAS when it comes to their desires to lower Government spending and/or cut taxes. 

First, I wat to state that there is not a “Tea Party”, per se.  There is a (large) group of American Citizens that do NOT like the  current direction of the United States, specifically the trend towards a Socialist government that controls almost EVERY aspect of its citizens lives.  They believe that Government is NOT the solution to every problem that we face.  They desire lower taxes, more freedom (including the freedom to fail), and they want to feel safe in a dangerous world. 

Now, as for the “allegation” that the “Tea Party” does not have any specific ideas about spending.  Give me a minute, I want to make sure that I say this in such a way that The One may finally understand what I am saying.

Let me be clear,  I want the government to pull out the books from way back in 2008.  Then I want them to spend EXACTLY what they spent, on EXACTLY what they spent it on!!!! 

This will be a good place to start.  If the President does NOT like these ideas, I will readily give him a choice.  HE can pick ANY year, BEFORE he became the leader of the FREE WORLD, and use that year as the spending EXAMPLE!!!  Do not change the amount or the destination of the spending!!!  THEN we can work on other ideas for reducing spending.

I hope I have been CLEAR.  Any questions, Mr. President??

Immigration Law in Arizona

May 19, 2010

If you have not read the “New Immigration Law” that has been passed in Arizona, here is a link to it.  If you do not want to read it, it basically says that Law Enforcement in Arizona can basically enforce EXISTING Federal law.  To expose the faulty arguments against this law I suggest the following publicity event.

Gather as many people as possible, go to Washington D.C., and simultaneously jump the fence at the White House.  Inform the media that an event is going to take place (where and when), have as many cameras recording the event as possible.  Unlike illegal aliens, DO NOT cause any damage or break any laws.  Wait for the reaction of the White House Security and then ask the President (at a Beer summit) to explain the difference between this event and every day in Arizona.  A twist, that could be involved with this event, would be to have all of the participants of the same race (say caucasian) and claim that White House security is racially motivated and discriminatory.  Ask for the NAACP and ACLU to provide defense for the people arrested.  I think it will be telling to see the reactions (or lack there of) of all organizations that have voiced their opinions about the Arizona Law.

Obama and Las Vegas…

February 3, 2010

President Obama apparently does not like Las Vegas….except when he does??? 

In making another speech, in New Hampshire, he said “You don’t blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you’re trying to save for college”.  This comment has generated a lot of criticism from the folks in Nevada, and I was reading this one, when I saw the following quote: 

“Enough is enough!” Democratic Congresswoman Shelley Berkley said in a statement. “President Obama needs to stop picking on Las Vegas and he needs to let Americans decide for themselves how and where to spend their hard-earned vacation dollars.” Here is my question: 

Democratic Congresswoman Berkley, can we agree that ALL elected officials should stop “picking on” the American Citizen, and LET them decide how and where to spend THEIR hard-earned dollars? 

Vote NO on ObamaCare, Cap and Trade, ANY tax increases, etc., let the people decide the best use for their money!!

Senator Kent Conrad is an IDIOT

January 21, 2010

Well which is it?  Is this the worst recession that the United States has had since The Great Depression or is it WORSE than that????    Huhh???

The following is a quote from Senator Kent Conrad, DEMOCRAT from North Dakota, on January 21, 2010.  That is the day after Scott Brown, a Republican, was elected to the Senate in the state of Massachusetts.  You know, the most democrat state in the most democrat region of the United States.

“I think part of the problem is the agenda itself,” said Conrad, who doesn’t face voters again until 2012. Instead of spending so much time on health care reform, Conrad said Democrats should have focused first on reducing the national debt and a bipartisan energy bill — and that President Barack Obama should have done a better job of explaining that the economic situation he inherited was “far worse” than he’d originally thought.(My emphasis)

The following is a quote from President-Elect Obama, The One, on January 11, 2009.

“Whether it’s retail sales, manufacturing, all of the indicators show that we are in the worst recession since the Great Depression,” Obama said on ABC. (My emphasis)

No, Senator Conrad, the problem IS the agenda, and that is why the American people are going to throw all of you lying politicians out of office as soon as we can.  You STILL do NOT get it!!!!!

Obama picks another with Tax problems

November 19, 2009

And here is Lael Brainard, Obama’s nominee for undersecretary of the Treasury for international affairs, with past tax problems.  If the people (check another-obama-nominee-with-you-guessed-it-tax-problems and the-tax-code-is-broken and how-much-do-you-pay-in-taxes for other entries) running the Treasury (that is the department that is in charge of the Internal Revenue Service, IRS) can not do their own taxes competently, there can only be one of three conclusions.

  1. The tax code is too complex for anyone to comply with and the tax code needs to be abolished and something less complex enacted, or
  2. They are idiots and incompetent for the jobs that they have and should not be in those positions, or
  3. They are liars, cheats, and immoral and should not be in those positions.

I will let you choose your own conclusion, but I would like to hear what you think in the comments.

Call me Skeptical

November 18, 2009

Let’s say that the House Health Bill that has passed is GREAT for America.  And let’s say that the estimate that has been made is perfect and that is what the Bill WILL cost.  Hoorah!!!!!  End of story!!  Congratulations are due to the Democrats and LONE Republican that voted FOR the Bill.

What if…??????

What if they are WRONG?  I know, I know, congress has NEVER been wrong in the past, but…..What if???

Here is another solution, as opposed to the one I wrote here.  Put an Amendment in the Bill that states:

IF the cost is greater than the accepted estimate, then the money to pay the excess cost first comes from the Representatives and Senators that voted FOR the Bill.  This can come from their salary, savings, investments, or estates, whether or not they are still in those positions.  NO money, above the accepted estimate, will come from any place other than the ones who voted FOR the Bill until they, or their estates, have $0 in assets.  Any money that they have donated or given away is also subject to seizure, this includes spouses money, heirs money, charity, loan payments, or political activities.

Let me know what you think.

P.S. Send a pink slip to your representatives here.

Obama gives Karzai Corruption Ultimatum

November 4, 2009

This article has me thinking about irony and a lack of character at the highest levels of government.

How can Obama, with a straight face, tell another leader to take care of the corruption in their government, when HE, “the anointed ONE”, cannot take care of the corruption in his own, including himself??

If you have not been paying attention, search ACORN, SEIU, Rangel, Dodd, Frank, Geithner, ethics investigation.  There are many more, but this should be a good start.

Health Care Reform Bill/Obamacare

November 3, 2009

If you have read any of the entries that I have done concerning the Health Care Reform Bills that have been passed around our government, like love notes in first grade (don’t let the teacher voters see), then you know how I feel about them.  This entry is a call to OUR representatives and senators who will vote on them.

Lets add an amendment to whatever bill (Pelosi, or Reid, or Baucus, or Obama favorite) gets voted on to set a time limit/cost limit.  If the bill is “scored”, by the CBO, to ONLY cost $800 BILLION (or $1 TRILLION, or $1.2 TRILLION, or whatever the number) then if the cost reaches that number BEFORE the time, say ten years, THEN the bill/law will EXPIRE.  If the “score” turns out to be high (I am extremely SKEPTICAL) then the bill/law will continue.

“They can’t do that”, you say!!!  I say that they CAN do this.

Think about the latest Bush TAX CUTS!!!!  They will expire at the end of this year, without OUR represenatives or senators doing anything.  Hey wait, that is what they are doing now!!!   NOTHING!!!!

Lets put a “phase out” on this legislation of five years.  If it works the American people/voters will have no problem reinstating it.
