Pay Czar

with one comment

With all the outrage over executive compensation, the pay czar Kenneth Feinberg is wanting to cut the top executive salaries by 50%-90%.  His focus is on executives of firms who received bailout money.  Wasn’t the stimulus funding part of the bailout?  I seem to recall that if the stimulus bill was not passed, then the whole economy would implode, so in effect the stimulus bill can also be part of the bailout.  One such company that benefited from government money (taxpayer money) was General Electric (GE), for the wind turbines that the government is buying.  Shouldn’t the pay czar limit the amount of income for Jeffery Immult?  But wait, Obama wouldn’t do that, since NBC is owned by GE and GE contributed billions of dollars to the Obama campaign AND NBC is in Obama’s back pocket.

Peter Schiff for Senate

with 2 comments

Here is a great quote from Peter Schiff who is running for Chris Dodd’s Senate seat.  Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die. Everybody wants recovery, but nobody wants the medicine required.   I only wish that someone like Peter Schiff would run for office in Oregon.

Future of Obamacare

with one comment

obamacare-linesI was greeted yesterday with what it will be like under Obamacare.  I needed to purchase a roll of “forever stamps”.  That is 100 stamps.  I live in Portland and drive to the local post office in the neighborhood near where I grew up (West Slope).  It is around 2 PM and I park and enter the post office and see a line of 11 people waiting to conduct their business.  There is a big clock on the wall and I note the time.  7 minutes later, the same person is at the counter and there are still 11 people in front of me in line and now there are 5 more behind me.  There is a single clerk working.  I just needed to buy a roll of stamps, a quick an easy transaction.  I had visions of this being the doctors office or the hospital emergency room, waiting and waiting and finally giving up. 

I mentioned this story this morning to my dentist and he laughed and said, “You think that was bad, go to the DMV”.  He made my point.  Government run organizations can do little right.  It reminds me of that saying about expensive health care.  “If you think your healthcare is expensive now, wait untill it’s free”.

Obamacare bill

leave a comment »

Olympia Snow should be hung up by her neck for allowing the bill to get out of the senate committee.  The dems are claiming a bipartisanship bill with a single republican vote.  Let’s band together and run her out of office.  Maine, you deserve better than this.

Obama Nobel Peace Prize

with 6 comments

Are you kidding me?  The Nobel Prize Committee has now lost all credibility.  They must eaten a “bowl of stupid” for breakfast or have been the recipient of some of the TARP funds or stimulus money.  I thought that Nobel Prizes were awarded for outstanding accomplishments in the previous 12 months.  Let’s see, Obama has created the greatest divide amongst Americans since the Civil War.  We have citizens and states hinting about succeeding from the union and he win the peace prize.  Give us all a break.

Chicago Olympics

with one comment

Denmark Olympics 2016 Bids ChicagoThe world finally opened their eyes to the deceit of Obama and the fact that the U.S. has no money to host the games in 2016.  Chicago is a great city and I wonder what the Olympic Committee looked at in reviewing the bids?  The local murder rate?, the state government corruption?  the finalical crisis in the U.S. Speaking of the climate summit coming up, what do you think the carbon footprint was for Obama to fly to Denmark to make his Olympics pitch, only to get his face slapped?
