Memorial Day Heroes; Veterans

It is interesting to look up the definition of “Hero”.   Classical definitions include ‘someone of extraordinary courage and strength’, or ‘a defender or protector’. It was used to hail knights and soldiers for the valiant courage in times of war. And then it changed.

Soldiers became sullied with the advent of the 1960’s. They were vilified and attacked. We need a hero, but with the classic military soldier now seen as a villain, there was no replacement. And within that void, more and more cartoon, fantasy heroes came to be created by Hollywood, Superman, Spiderman, Batman, etc… These ‘characters’ became our heroes as we desperately sought a demigod.

We put our faith in a comic book.

And our true heroes, our veterans who sacrificed everything, were shunned.

My father was a part of the Nevada Nuclear tests during the 1950’s in which officers were ordered to stand at attention as the bombs were detonated, washing them in massive amounts of radiation. Enlisted soldiers were told to take cover in the trenches.

Years later, all these officers found that their systems had been irreversibly damaged with various forms of cancer. They all died. My dad included. My father was career. He held to the loyalty of the military and honorably upheld the moral and ethical belief that he had participated in something that was beyond ‘self’.   He sacrificed his very life for the benefit of all Americans signing on for all the associated risks – which included WWII. He believed that it was his duty, and the ramifications were a part of the calling.

While his politics changed during retirement, his loyalty never budged a smidgeon.

I believe with all my heart that we have a duty, a responsibility, an ethic, and a heartfelt requirement, to take care of every single military veteran in every way we possibly can. But it seems that the true understanding of their sacrifice has somehow been obliterated. We honor super heroes that are a fantasy and demonize flesh and blood war heroes.

When my Green Beret brother returned from his third tour of duty in Vietnam he was pelted with tomatoes as he disembarked the plane. The attitude of the 1960’s and 1970’s, our very own generation, lives on today. Now, Hollywood provides us our heroes and too easily we get caught in their web.

I share the belief of peace. I share the belief of tolerance… albeit within logic. But I believe our media has helped to portray our soldiers, our military, for their failures, instead of their honor and accomplishments.

As with the woman at the well, ‘who can throw the first stone’?   Are we not all guilty of heinous grievous hurts?   So how can we absolve ourselves and not absolve others? Truly, there exist degrees.  Meaning the concept of equal responsibility in hurts and guilts just isn’t reality. Sometimes it is quite lopsided.

In that light, whether you agree with the various wars that our veterans have fought is not important, what is important is recognizing that their heart, their conscience, and their ideal, was directed at a much larger picture; protecting you and you and you. And in that, they were willing to die for – you…!  Not on a movie screen, but on a battlefield, desperate, in agony, leaving behind their family, and their life.

This fundamental ethic applies not just to our military acceptance, but to our lives in every aspect that we pursue each and every day.   My brother, who was pelted by his compatriots, is now spending his retirement years helping Christian women who are being wrongfully divorced and/or demonized by their soon to be – ex-husbands.

He continues unabated to do what is right, what is noble, what will bring help to those in desperate need.

My brother deals with the hypocrisy of hearts daily.  But his house is built on rock, and the grass that holds the water of life is rooted in deep rich soil.  Without that rich soil, the shoots and blades of grass haven’t the ability to absorb the nutrients and water, and instead the essence of life pools on the surface never penetrating, never being.  The grass wilts, and dies no matter how much water is continually added.

Talking the good talk is worthy only if one walks the good walk too. God knows this, and thus asked of those judging the woman at the well, who among you are without sin?

This Memorial Day, I honor the talk and walk of my father who gave his life, and my brother who offered his life, and all those I have known throughout my life as an Army brat. Lastly, I would add, the son of my friend Brian who recently sacrificed his life as he fought for ours in the war against ISIS.  He gave everything he had – for us and should be hailed a hero.

TO THE REAL LIFE HERO’S – EACH ONE! WE LOVE YOU!

Thank You So Much For Giving Everything – For the sins of us…

Trump Tax Plan – Hoopdela

Trump has released his outline for tax reform and the mainstream are going google nuts! They are absolutely convinced that this is a wealthy tax reform that will plunge revenues into the twalette!! The highest tax bracket of 40% will be reduced to 35% and this will decimate the Federal government pockets. OMGosh.

Really?

Because according to the IRS, in 2015 (latest year available), the average tax rate for the 1%ers was just barely over 27% although they still picked up about 38% of all income taxes. The top 50% of taxpayers had an average tax rate just under 15%. And the bottom 50% paid a meager 3.3% in taxes on average and only represented 2.78% share of all taxes collected.  Well how do ya like that!  This aligns rather well with Trump’s plan, unless you are an overpaid tax preparer, an IRS employee, or a Pundit.

One decrier of the plan is Bill Maher, a comedian with a degree in English and History. I suppose that qualifies him to evaluate and analyze finance? Another critic, Ryan Struyk of ABC quoted the ‘bipartisan’ Committee For Responsible Federal Budget.  

It’s current President, Maya MacGuiness, whose background bio includes such media notables as Washington Post, New York Times, The Atlantic, Financial Times and LA Times – all bellwether diehard Liberal organizations, is predictable. In addition, she held a post at the Brookings Institute, another Liberal organization. Hard to classify as ‘nonpartisan’.

The Board is weighted heavily with democrats, including Leon Panetta, Charles Schultz, Robert Strauss, etc… And formerly associated with the New America Foundation, a Soros supported organization. They took a special interest in Obama and McCain in 2008… lauding their budget campaigns. In other words, it is hardly the most reliable in terms of ‘nonpartisanship’.

For the lower 50% tax filers, the greatest advantage is increasing the standard deduction which effectively makes the first $24000 of revenue nontaxable taking a hefty stresser off the table. Critics of the plan continue the same rhetoric as always without ever understanding the main punch – lower tax rates mean more income will flow back into the US instead of ending up in the Caymans, Bahamas, Cyprus and all the other tax havens that wealthy taxpayers enjoy – including Hollywood elitists.

Another ‘nonpartisan’ organization offering their opinion is the Urban Brookings Tax Policy Center whose current President Mark Mazur was an Obama appointee as Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy. The previous president, Leonard Burman, worked in the Bill Clinton White House.  Funding comes from Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation and Gates Foundation…Sigh…Gee REALLY?  All quite Liberal.

I think a part of the failure of the analyses is that it comes from people making tons of money, they don’t understand the mentality of someone making just enough to pay the bills, and can’t predict that reaction. In contrast, failing to take into account the offshore money is very short-sighted. Failing to look at the sources of tax revenue historically, is also short-sighted.

Failing to check your SOURCES – is also pretty critical.

According to the Liberal MSM, The New York Times, The Cayman Islands hold $1.9 trillion in US dollars on deposit. The Swiss hold $3 trillion in Swiss francs. IBC’s and trusts account for trillions. In fact, it has been estimated that between a third and a half of all the wealth of the world’s high net worth individuals is sitting in offshore accounts. Why?

Taxes.  And its not coming back unless there is an incentive.  Pretty basic economics.

The other half of Trump’s tax plan affects businesses by cutting the rate from a top tier of 39.6% to just 15%. Ultimately this will encourage spending, additional hiring, and raises. It won’t happen overnight. But this effect could be the biggest equalizer encouragement. The effect of lowering tax rates has been proven over and over again as an economic stimulus.

In this instance it has the added bonus of encouraging large corporations who have offshored their headquarters to tax haven countries, to relocate back to the US.  Despite all the analyses, this one equalizer has not been utilized in making predictions.  Why?  Because it hasn’t happened.  Corporations keep moving away – they don’t come back unless they have that diehard gravity – incentive!

Again, this will take time to implement in terms of feeding the economy, but the measures could sharpen the revenue stream significantly.

While some Republicans eagerly proffer negative reviews claiming the tax reform will not ‘blow holes in the deficit’, they seem to miss the point that – THAT is NOT the Point. It is as though the search for a negative no matter how forlorn, far-fetched, ambiguous, destructive, or just plain ridiculous, is the only agenda.

It’s an ego war.  ‘Well I didn’t think of it, so therefore it probably won’t work…’

Even more telling:   How can these in-depth, analysis Committees and policy groups and pundits release their ‘in-depth analysis and criticism’ one day after the outline is made public?   Because in the real world, such analyses typically take months, if not years, in government circles. They require complete knowledge of the entire plan, not just an outline, as Trump provided. They require multiple experts plugging in numbers, ratifying data, creating algorithms, and then fixing all the inevitable mistakes they have made, resubmitting left out data, and creating new templates.

But then it wouldn’t make for good Entertainment and media mania…

Macron – The Power of Charm

The Grooming of a President for France has been in the making for a number of years. With Hollande’s approval consistently tanking, the shadows knew they needed to find someone younger, charismatic, a Socialist, someone whose greed and lust for power could easily be bought. And they found Emmanuel Macron.

He attended one of France’s most elite schools where he was trained in Civil Service, graduating in 2004. His biography states that in 2007, he served as deputy rapporteur for the Commission to improve French growth headed by Jacques Attali, Macron was 29. But the Commission wasn’t formed until 2008.  Obviously he is a bit ‘math challenged’.  The  Commission report was heavily criticized for its proposal to ‘relaunch immigration’ and ‘open borders’… Attali was ridiculed and called a ‘globalist’.

Sound like anyone we know?

Macron left the Commission, which was shelved September 2010, to work for Rothschilds & Cie Banque where he became an overnight millionaire while working the Nestle acquisition of Pfizer’s nutritional outlet, which closed in 2012.   Nestle is a client of Rothschilds.  Macron had no experience in acquisitions and mergers whatsoever…

What does one do when one makes millions overnight?  Apparently one quits.  

He then left Rothschilds to work for Hollande as deputy secretary general of Elysee, and eventually Minister of Economy, Industry and Digital Data in 2014 where he served 18 months before running for Presidency. I’d call that a pretty fast paced runup with little to no political experience or business savvy.

Sounding phishy? Because it is.

All of these positions seem a bit odd for a very junior man with no experience in any of these respective employment quarters.   And so, it would appear that Rothschilds saw in Macron what they saw in Obama before he too suddenly became a ‘millionaire’.

Leaving a company, Rothschilds, where he was making millions, to suddenly becoming a deputy government official making less than $70,000 per year and rising to a Ministerial position in less than 2 years, is more than a bit odd.

Ministers in France are typically appointed after a tedious reign of past accomplishments and decades of public service.   Macron was appointed at the ripe age of 36 with barely a smidge of experience. But it gets a bit more murky:

In researching the list of past Ministers, he isn’t even recognized as having that appointment at all… When clicking on the link for Minister of Economy, Industry and Digital Data, the page forwards to Minister of Finance. The List of former Finance Ministers does not include Macron’s name at all. Nor is there seemingly such a position as Minister of economy Industry and Digital Data….

In essence, the man has gone from a shadow of nothingness, to millionaire status at the hands of Rothschilds, to a position that doesn’t exist in the French Government, to running for President. Murkier still:

Not wishing to frame himself as a Socialist, given the current climate of politics in France and the disillusionment with Socialist Hollande, Macron created a new Party – En Marche.

En Marche is considered a Liberal Progressive Socialist Party closely aligned with Clinton politics. While Macron claims the party is ‘centrist’, his General Secretary is Richard Ferrand, a member of the Socialist Party. En Marche was partially funded by BNP Paribas, a French banking giant with connections to Rothschilds. Which would kinda, maybe indicate that En Marche is just another Rothschilds loop.

FYI :  Clinton’s and Rothschilds very buddy-buddy.

Enter Macron’s biggest competitor in the presidential race – Francois Fillon, a conservative. January 25th a member of the current Parliament under Hollande leaks to Le Canard Enchaine, that they have launched an investigation into possible misappropriation of funds in Fillon’s hiring and paying his wife as his aid.

Fillon’s lead tanks, and Macron moves closer in his competition with Le Pen despite the fact that he is nobody with no experience and a questionable title as Minister that doesn’t really exist, who made millions as a newbie with no experience working for Rothschilds on an $11 billion deal.

The story was immediately picked up and headlined by DW.com, which is now a Soros platform, Washington Post (which routinely runs articles for the Rothschilds) Bloomberg and Reuters.

It is only a matter of time before Marin Le Pen, who is currently leading in the election polls, finds herself embroiled in her own funneled scandal so as to pave the way for Emmanuel Macron, a Rothschilds/Soros agenda.

This my friends, is how a President is made.

De Blasio’s Blubbering Bumbles

Mayor De Blasio seems to be confident that he doesn’t need Trump, won’t abide by the rules, and will circumvent the law in order to maintain a healthy, wealthy and wise New York City bereft of Government subsidies…

The audited financial statements for fy 2015 say – Not So Much! Below is just a small fraction of the discrepancies:

  1. The audit found that DOE’s controls and management over its computer hardware were not sufficient to ensure that it could properly account for the computers it had purchased. DOE did not maintain a centralized inventory of computer hardware purchased from Apple and Lenovo. Further, DOE did not reconcile the individual DOE sites’ inventory records with its Asset Management System (AMS), the database used by DOE to record computer hardware delivered to DOE. Consequently, auditors could not rely on information in AMS, and the system could not properly identify where all of the computers paid for by DOE were located.
  2. An audit examined whether NYCHA had adequate controls in place to accurately monitor and track vacant apartments in its public housing developments the audit found that NYCHA had inadequate controls over the monitoring and tracking of its vacant apartments. NYCHA did not ensure that vacant apartments were repopulated with new tenants in a timely manner.
  3. The audit disclosed weaknesses in DHS’ oversight and controls over its emergency contracts. DHS did not have formal monitoring procedures, nor did it have sufficient evidence that oversight and monitoring activities for the contracts that were the subject of the audit took place. In addition, DHS personnel did not adequately review or check invoices and supporting documentation for accuracy prior to payment. Finally, emergency contract managers did not perform satisfaction assessments of shelter clients as required by the City’s PPB Rules Chapter 4, §4-01(e).
  4. The audit found that DCAS does not adequately account for and manage its inventory of City office space. The agency does not have a reliable computer system or an effective tracking tool to assist in processing moves and renovations, or with maintaining an inventory of all City office space.
  5. The audit determined that HRO failed to implement proper controls to ensure the appropriate, prompt and efficient delivery of services to applicants for benefits under the BIB Single Family Program. Specifically, HRO failed to effectively monitor the work of the multiple consultant companies hired to carry out the program. As a result, by December 31, 2013, seven months after the program began accepting applications and over a year after the storm devastated homes along the coast of New York City, only 960 of the roughly 20,000 program applicants had met with HRO to discuss the options available to them through the BIB program and zero applicants had actually received any program benefits.
  6. The audit found significant deficiencies in NYCHA’s internal procedures that resulted from management’s failure to institute adequate controls over inventory operations. Consequently, there is limited assurance that the inventory at the satellite warehouses and the development storerooms is adequately protected against misappropriation or theft.
  7. In the case of the City, liabilities and deferred inflows of resources exceed assets and deferred outflows of resources by $181.8 billion at the close of the most recent fiscal year,

Net Pension Liability for the City is $52 billion as of FY June 2015.

IN FY 2013, Federal aid to fund the NYC budget amounted to roughly $46 billion representing about 28% of their revenue.

Pensions and debt service amounted to over 21% of the annual budget…

30.3% of working families are 200% below the poverty rate, 22.2% of children in the city are in poverty, and 35% of single parent families live in poverty.

Is De Blasio’s Blubbering against Trump based on his own successes? Obviously not, yet he threatens to extend the deficit hole of New York City by forfeiting 28% of the City’s revenue base so he can personally fund abortions, pensions, Medicaid, and HUD housing deficiencies…

Stupid Is As Stupid Does…

Hillary’s Progressive America

Geraldo judging Trump is like a dog judging a buffalo… no contest.   Geraldo has been married five times, brags overtly on live television that he has had sex with over 1000 women, has reportedly sexually assaulted Bette Midler, is married to a Democrat, has had children with his multiple liasons, has tweeted a nearly nude picture of himself because he finds his body so very attractive, and then feels compelled to publicly judge – Trump.

This is the America we live in today. Transgressions are never owned – instead fingers are pointed.

Hillary claims that Trump is lewd and offensive and she is above these slanderous rituals of political mudslinging, turns around and slings not just mud, but a tsunami of destructive opinionated insults. And America inhales it like cocaine.

What a Hillary Progressive presidency might look like:

  1. Wall Street is her idol. They represent the banking cartel that outlined their agenda for world order centuries ago and have patiently and patently organized every peg in the game from the Federal Reserve to NATO to the UN, Global organizations that will fill the void when governments are eliminated or taken over. Instituting coups is of the greatest importance, second only to the devaluation of intellect through subversive control of our education system.
  2. Hawkish military policies will fuel more wars and massive destruction of entire countries.
  3. Eliminating natural and organic markets, Hillary is an advocate for Monsanto and the increased devastation their herbicides and pesticides will ultimately wreak on American farms. As the land becomes unusable, the land grabs of Africa owned an operated by large corporations will be the world food overseers.
  4. Hillary claims she is a “Progressive Democrat”, yet refuses to define what that means… so I will: Social Justice is a tenet of Marxist theory. Sharing of corporate profits is a tenet of Marxist theory. A socialist revolution must occur in order to create the dictatorship of Marxism. Once fulfilled, the dictator statehood rules over the peasants. The statehood is considered to be the economically dominant intellectual power. Thus while wealth in terms of classes is eliminated, their remains a ‘Ruling Class’ – and everyone else.
  5. Soros has called for a ‘controlled’ US dollar devaluation of upwards of 30%. That would mean increased inflation, stagnated growth, and the creation of a continually lower standard of living. But the dollar has declined 98% since 1913, the same year that the federal income tax was initiated, the same century that created the Federal Reserve, Social Security taxes, sales taxes, the SEC the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, and the thousands upon thousands of governmental agencies that have created a national debt approaching $19 trillion or $19,000,000,000,000. NOT as a result of capitalism – but of a progressive socialist economic agenda.
  6. The concept that all national boundaries should be obliterated is a tenet of the New World Order – and Hillary.
  7. Our US education system was recreated in the early 1920’s by Rockefeller who saw the opportunity to establish and determine what knowledge would be shared with the pubescent minds. The point was to condition the child’s mind while eliminating unessential data such as history, arithmetic, and language. Instead, each child would serve the corporate need of the generation. This dummy-down mind control is the basis of Marxism.

    John Dewey, a Marxist and a “Progressive”, formulated the US education system on the models of communist Russia, and labeled it “Progressive Education” based on the ideology that God was dead.

Karl Marx quote, “The first battlefield is the rewriting of history.”

A stupid person is easier to control than an educated one. Trained, they are like cattle. Common Core is the Federalized dummy down in which even the most simplistic of ideas is convoluted thereby creating a void of knowledge.

In 1913, unemployment stood around 4.3%. Output per capita was the world’s greatest. Real output was growing an average of 4% per year. It was the same year Rockefeller gave $100million to his own foundation thereby avoiding the newly instituted federal taxation. Russia, France, Italy, US and the UK were allies against Germany, Austria, and the Ottoman Empire. But the banking cartel headed by Rockerfeller, JP Morgan, Montagu Norman, Rothschilds, Goldman Sachs, and Lehman orchestrated the creation of the Federal Reserve so that they could control the money supply which gave them the power to orchestrate the Crash of 1929 in which they profited handsomely! It also gave them such expansive power that they became the shadow government making all decisions…

The Clinton initiation into the Rockefeller cabal began sometime in the early 1990’s when Bill Clinton was harvested for the Bilderberg Group and Lawrence Rockefeller demanded Hillary take task into a health care reform project for the US. They dictated the presidency, the policies, the laws, healthcare, welfare and – education.

It was at the passage of the Federal Reserve that Congressman Charles Lindbergh Sr. was quoted as saying, “From now on all depressions will be scientifically created.” He voted against the Federal Reserve. He also asserted:

There is a sinister influence at work in our country, which, if it is not checked, intends to completely undermine the original purpose of the formation of our Government—change it from the purposes of a democracy, and instead make it of a monarchical and plutocratic system, and to bring all the world into one control and one system, which for purposes of deception of the plain people, they would call a “world’s democracy,” but which in fact it is their plan to make the rule of the wealth grabbers, maintained by simple organization of themselves and disorganization of the masses pitting the masses against each other.”

This is not something new! This is something that has legs in the tortoise and the hare. Why the urgency seems to have ramped up – is still a viable question…

The next imperative? The devaluation of the US dollar… and if the US is supreme, how come China owns the position of four out of five largest banks in the world…

Because the real battle for world domination rests in the battle of two; China and their allies as government forces, against the US, EU and it’s allies as corporate entities. Everyone else – in-between – is simply ‘collateral damage’.

Hillary Clinton vs. TRUMP : falling out of grace

While Hillary mocks Trump for his tax loss, she fails to acknowledge her own woes of ‘being broke’ due to squanderous spending and lax savings. Leaving the White House where insider trading was routine, where tit-for-tat was commonplace, where money was loose and large, the Clinton’s claim they came away – broke! That doesn’t bode as a monetary policy of profit… it boasts a crisis of over-spending. The same over-spending that will bankrupt the US.

The only way they could create wealth was through a fraudulent foundation that did nothing for charity at a less than 9% payout, but milked governments for favors, and thru onerous speaking engagements – for onerous favors. And in that genre, they managed to accumulate hundreds of millions, much of which most likely is stashed in overseas accounts…

Given their own discombobulated logic, it would seem they promote fraud over business, and money as their god.

Add to the fray that the Mz. uses as her magnate idol a former Miss Universe who took offense because she did not comply with the rules of her ‘employment’ and her win, a woman who threatened to kill a judge if he jailed her gangster boyfriend with whom she had an illegitimate child – and we get a clearer picture of what Hillary stands for…

Add to the fray the Hillary who enabled and exalted her husband’s infidelities as though it was normal and simultaneously attempted to destroy the various ‘mistresses’ and rape victims, and this is the feminism that Hillary promotes and justifies and glorifies!

Add to the fray that there are dead bodies of real people, sons, daughters, mothers and fathers… who may have lost their lives as a direct consequence of Hillary, and we have her morality and ethics on display for how she will rule this country – as Queen Marhilly of Scots.

Add to the fray that she shares the ‘bomb everyone’ mentality, and we know that there will not be an ally left on this planet that will support the US.

Add to the fray that her mental acuity is questioned, her health definitely a topic of concern, and we have a medicated, prescription addict who can unravel at any moment and plunge the US into a perilous chaos much like the over-medicated, delusional Hitler when he became addicted to a cocktail of medications including bull semen, amphetamines, barbiturates, opiates, cocaine etc… and led Germany into a World War.

Add to the fray that her best pals include Huma Abedin a Muslim Brotherhood bride, George Soros an aging farcical stage manager who wants to witness the fall of the world before he dies – just for funsies, and Cher, an old actress who has less than a high school education and has threatened to leave the country on numerous occasions to everyone’s bated breath – and yet never does. Sigh. And these are her trusted companions…

Add to the fray that her closest email cohorts have been given immunity, their computers smashed to smithereens so that the data can never be revealed to the Public, and we now have a person who buys the law – and glorifies in that power…

AND YET – the focus is on the fact that Trump utilized VALID tax law to write off his losses against his income as does every person who can – and we are comparing ‘legal’ to the worst devastation of the Constitution and the Commandments possibly ever having transpired in this country – much less to a Presidential candidate.

And the fray revels and glorifies this woman – why?

Because morality – ethic – law – order – discipline – compassion – honesty – truth – and justice – are no longer relevant. Just have a conversation with a Democrat. And immediately the barbs fly, the hatred flies, the accusations fly, the derailment flies, the antagonistic – intolerant – hatred comes unraveled.

It would seem to be – the root of chaos. The same chaos that Soros so loves and fuels at any given opportunity. The same chaos that these political pundits embrace with a zeal without the ability to actually see – their own violent animosity.

Did you hear about the white 17 year old that was violently beaten up by blacks and remains hospitalized with massive head injuries because he advocated support for the police? Probably not – because the media doesn’t find those stories of value.

The Obama Legacy

With the Obama Bathroom Gender on the agenda as a crowning moment for the President’s legacy tabulation, I decided to find out exactly what accomplishments are being attributed to his term – and was completely, utterly shocked!

A site, albeit one that is must be written by Obama’s personal PR magnates, lists no less than 358 actionable achievements that Obama is credited since taking office – and they claim that each one is accompanied by a ‘citation’ of proof!

YIMINY!

While I won’t/can’t list them all without losing my mind, I thought some were rather inventive and could elicit a comedy routine or two:

  1. Signed an Executive Order ordering an audit of government contracts in order to combat waste and fraud, and appointed a Chief Performance Officer to oversee and make certain that federal spending was efficient.

Waste #1: a $750,000 soccer field for Guantanamo detainees

Waste #2: $500 million to train 4 Iraqi’s to fight ISIS

Waste #3: $24 million for internet routers in West Virginia designed for thousands but servicing a few hundred

Waste #4: $104.5 million for an Alaskan town to build a harbor and an airport when the town doesn’t even have roads and a population of 75 residents

So who was the first nomination for this whiz Chief Performance Officer who manages all our tax dollars at work? Jeff Zients, who got a Bachelor of Science degree and apparently worked in ‘consulting’ before landing the coveted position of COO of DGB Enterprises. But DGB doesn’t even have a website, and according to Bloomberg, has no competition, no information, no formal explanation of who or what they are, except that they have an office in the Watergate Complex in DC. Manta claims the business is categorized in ‘magazine publications’ and employs between 1 and 4 people.

Not exactly a rip roaring resume COO position to be suddenly nominated as Chief Performance Officer overseeing all federal spending to eliminate fraud and waste! During his tenure as Federal Chief Performance Officer he single handedly overhauled the plaguing tech issues for Obamacare by ‘insisting’ that one person be appointed the General Contractor so only one head would fall when it all tanked. Everyone else could then say, ‘not me man, I got no responsibility…’ WOW – impressive!

  1. Signed an Executive Order demanding that federal agencies review all regulations and remove all unnecessary and burdensome regulations:

Oh MY! As of 2012, just over 11,000 new pages of regulations were ‘added’, and by the end of 2014, the sum had increased to 21,000 additional pages. While all these pages do no necessarily mean 21,000 new regulations – the Order was to ‘remove’, not add.

  1. “Through His investment in GM, returned the company to its place as the premier car company of the world”.

OUCH! The GM ‘plan’ was created by GM before Obama assumed office and was approved by Bush in 2008. And even though the company is now profitable, despite the fact that our tax funds bailed it out of bankruptcy, they can offset their previous losses against their current profits and wipe out all taxable income – ie, they pay no taxes…as in ZERO on profits of billions.  Wait – since we paid for their return to solvency – shouldn’t we get the Tax Credit?

  1. Obama ‘scolds Congress and gets passed a $305 billion Highway Bill which will create hundreds of thousands of new jobs’.

The 1300 page Bill will use the current gas tax to fund the $305 billion over a period of five years – $61 billion per year. But wait, the gas tax only generates $34 billion per year, so where will the rest come from? And Obama hardly drafted or even proposed the Bill, it was orchestrated by Bill Shuster, James Imhofe, Barbara Boxer and Peter DeFasio. What Obama accomplished was writing his name…

  1. And last, for me, but not least, Obama dropped inflation in Healthcare costs by 50% as a result of the Obamacare initiative:

Fancy-pants way of ignoring the Truth. Healthcare Insurance premiums have risen to ridiculous levels with out-of-pocket deductibles reaching ten to twenty percent of income for the middle class, and premiums reaching 25% for middle class. I could give a dang about the inflation rate when I’m personally paying thru the nose! Not to mention that the quality of care in the US is teetering in the bottom of the barrel when compared to other developed countries.

Personally, I found that Cuba might just be the new go to for US citizens looking for quality and affordable healthcare… But then, maybe that’s why Obama dropped the drawbridge.

Of course, the most recent legacy that will be added to this lengthy 358 will be the Bathroom Bill, an achievement worth mentioning given that we are “playing chicken” with China and Russia. But then, that’s not important…and Bathrooms take precedence.

FYI: For those who don’t remember, ‘playing chicken’ is a game in which 2 players engage in an activity that will result in serious harm unless one of them backs down. It’s a game where the one who backs down is referred to as a chicken and is thus humiliated.

Job Requirements – a Want Ad

WANTED: “Recent” College graduate, prefer MA, 15 years previous experience required, able to lift heavy loads – upwards of 125 to 300 pounds, sit endlessly doing nothing, have a respectable, professional attitude, designer clothing required, work 80 hours per week and some weekends, and rise to the occasion when your boss screams obscenities at you that may require you to bow, bark and scrape like a pet dog. Likely candidates should have no life outside of work and have no possible evolution of a life.

Before submitting a resume, all candidates must complete a short online test including skill levels of Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Oracle, Perl, Java, Sage, SAP Business, NetSuite, PHP, NDS, JDE, Cruise Control and Timberline. Estimated time to complete the test is 20 hours. Anyone whose score is below 99.5% will not be considered, ie, don’t bother sending in your resume.

If financial assistance is required – that is your responsibility, as all employees are required to accept the policy we offer or they will be terminated.

We provide a 401(k) plan available to Executives only. Given this position is for Management, you would not qualify until or unless you were promoted within to an executive position. However, given this has never happened in the history of this company, it is doubtful you will ever qualify. But you can always hope.

Our Dental and Vision plan has a $15,000 deductible after which everything is covered except teeth and eyes.
