July 16, 2009, 12:39 pmOur Tax Dollars At Work (Stress Relief)

Government Subsidized Stress Relief for Social Security Administration Executives   

 


At this point, this stuff is just for amusement since we're at the point our grandchildren's grandchildren will be paying for all this, and we have no social code where matching revenue with expenses matters anymore. Just send out money in all directions and we'll figure out the rest at a later date.

But one thing to note - never cross Brian Ross of ABC News. Unfortunately ABC News is still in the dark ages unlike CBS and NBC so you cannot embed video but you can see the video here - it's the typical bite sized (2 minute-ish) so the American viewer does not stop paying attention ;)

Just remember, if you are feeling stressed at your job, do what the government does, go to the Arizona Biltmore hotel and just charge it to the money tree. In fact, quit your job and go straight to the hotel; Obama soon will have money coming to you to subsidize your house payment.

Remember, only federal government workers - those whose pay has not taken a hit like the private sector, nor whose benefits ever get threatened - feel stress. They deserve this. You do not... you live a stress free life in your private sector line of work.

Just wanted to let you know what your [sic]... your grandkid's [sic]... your grandkids grandkids money is going towards.

  • Claiming they needed to learn how to reduce stress because of a growing number of death threats being made against them, nearly 700 executives from the Social Security Administration [SSA] gathered for a lavish three-day conference in Phoenix, AZ last week, costing taxpayers about $700,000.
  • "We received threats against our employees by people who are in the American public," said SSA Regional Commissioner for San Francisco Peter Spencer in defense of the conference. He said "there is a tremendous amount of stress involved in the job that we do."
  • The conference, which included a performance by a motivational dance company that was captured on tape by Phoenix affiliate ABC15, was held at the Arizona Biltmore, a hotel described as the "Jewel of the Desert" with an oasis of 39 acres of lush gardens, swimming pools and a golf course.
  • But the partying didn't stop there. Some of the government managers brought along their relatives, and there was a night excursion to a local casino. Even top Social Security administrator Michael Astrue made a special guest appearance. His spokesman said he flew coach, and the SSA said it arranged the lowest rate possible for the event.
  • Critics were incensed with the spending, especially during a financial crisis, and took issue with the idea that executives saved as much money as possible. "Actually, they didn't do it as low cost as possible," said David Williams of the watchdog Citizens Against Government Waste group. "Because as low cost as possible would be a video teleconference. It would not be flying people in from all around the country to have this conference." (but then how could they gamble and work off the stress? with their stressed spouses?)

But not to worry - this is just a regional meeting; there are more stressed out workers from other regions and they too must go to 4 star resorts to "work it out"

  • The SSA said such in-person meetings are essential, and this Phoenix gathering was just one in a series of such regional meetings, at a cost of over $1 million in the last year alone.
  • Congressman Kevin Brady, R-TX, was outraged to learn how the financially-troubled SSA, which is expected to be insolvent in less than 30 years unless taxes are raised substantially, is spending its dwindling money.
  • The conference cost was still a tough pill to swallow for taxpayers. "It sounds like a big rip off to me," one Phoenix resident said. "That's not right," another Valley resident told ABC15 after watching video of conference events.

July 9, 2009, 12:18 pmTeacher Slams Obama--(And I Agree)

TEACHER SLAMS OBAMA

April 17, 2009
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington ,  DC   20500


Mr. Obama:

    I have had it with you and your administration, sir.  Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the  United States of America collectively or of me personally.

You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the  United States of America .  You are responsible to the citizens of the United States ..  You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.

    I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the  United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world.  Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of  Europe ?  Are you brain dead?  What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about?  Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

    Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the  United States does not consider itself a Christian country?  Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the  United States ?  This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage.  Do you not understand this?

    Your bowing to the king of  Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans.  Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of  Saudi Arabia .  You don’t show  Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of  Saudi Arabia .  How dare you, sir!  How dare you!
You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don’t want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in  Turkey .  You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves.  What’s the matter with you? 

     I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.

      You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them?  Anything?  I seriously doubt it. 

    What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members – on top of the $2..5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves?  I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus..  I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer.  You haven’t said anything about that.  Who authorized that?  I surely didn’t!   

   Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses.  In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million – not a bad take.    Who authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now..

   I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. 

   We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you. 

   I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities.  I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.

Sincerely,
Every real American

P.S.  I rarely ask that emails be 'passed around'...PLEASE SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST...it's past time for all Americans to wake up!

July 7, 2009, 7:39 pmMeaning of Flag Draped Coffin

Meaning of Flag Draped   Coffin
All Americans should be given this lesson. Those who think that America is an arrogant nation should really reconsider that thought. Our founding fathers used GOD ' s word and teachings to establish our Great Nation and I think it ' s high time Americans get re-educated about this Nation ' s history. Pass it along and be proud of the country we live in and even more proud of those who serve to protect our ' GOD GIVEN ' rights and freedoms.
I hope you take the time to read this ... To understand what the flag draped coffin really means ... Here is how to understand the flag that laid upon it and is surrendered to so many widows and widowers.

Do you know that at military funerals, the 21-gun salute stands for the sum of the numbers in the year 1776? 



Have you ever noticed the honor guard pays meticulous attention to correctly folding the  United States of America  Flag 13 times? You probably thought it was to symbolize the original 13 colonies, but we learn something new every day! 

The 1st fold of the flag is a symbol of life
.
The 2nd  fold is a symbol of the belief in eternal life.
The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing the ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of the country to attain peace throughout the world. 


The 4th fold represents the weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him  we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance.


The 5th fold is a tribute to the country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, ' Our Country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong. '  


The 6th fold is for where people ' s hearts lie. It is with their heart that They pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States Of America , and the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all. 

The 7th fold is a tribute to its Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that they protect their country and their flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of their republic.



The 8th fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day.


The 9th fold is a tribute to womanhood, and Mothers. For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded. 

The 10th fold is a tribute to the father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of their country since they were first born.



The 11th fold represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies in the Hebrews eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.



The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.


The 13th fold, or when the flag is completely folded, the stars are ! uppermost reminding them of their nations motto,  'In God We Trust. '  



After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a <snip>ed hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the Sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for them the rights, privileges and freedoms they enjoy today. 

There are some traditions and ways of doing things that have deep meaning. In the future, you ' ll see flags folded and now you will know why. 

Share this with the children you love and all others who love what is referred to, the symbol of ' Liberty and Freedom. '


MAYBE THE SUPREME COURT SHOULD READ THIS EXPLANATION BEFORE THEY RENDER THEIR DECISION ON THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE.
FORWARD IT; MAYBE SOMEONE WITH THE NECESSARY POWER, OR POLITICAL AND FINANCIAL INFLUENCE, WILL GET IT TO THEM. 

IN THE MEANTIME, MAY GOD PROTECT US ALWAYS. 

ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
