Bloviating Zeppelin: Politicians and Judges Have GOT To Be Hurt!

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Politicians and Judges Have GOT To Be Hurt!


The more that any state's politicians or judges remain unhurt and unscathed in budgetarily tough times, the more they remain Imperial and Imperious.  And the more the average citizen suffers because those two groups don't suffer the same consequences for their negligent actions.


For example, in Fornicalia, the state where I live, from the CapitolBasement.com:

The governor continues to dribble out new rounds of cuts. The Chron's Matthew Yi reports, "California state employees would lose 5 percent of their pay under the latest proposal by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to help close a widening budget deficit, his spokesman said Thursday.

 

"The plan is expected to be unveiled today as part of $3 billion in new cuts that come on the heels of $5.5 billion in proposed cuts that were announced Tuesday.


Yes, there are cuts in the offing -- to possibly include essentially shutting down the entire State Parks system.  But just who gets cut and why?  Read on:

"The only state workers who would not face a pay cut are legislators and court workers, who have their own budgets."

"The pay cuts would affect 235,000 workers under the Republican governor's control. The state's judicial and legislative branches would be exempt because they are autonomous, but McLear said employees who work for constitutional officers would receive a pay cut."

And therein lies the massive problem and the disconnect.

Judges and state politicians are purposely exempt from these cuts "as they have a different budget unit."  Or some such rationalized and -- oddly enough -- convenient thing.

Two very important things need to occur:

1. Budget cuts needs to affect all State of Fornicalia workers, to include those elected and appointed.  If their check reads STATE OF CALIFORNIA at the top, those officers and their staffs need to feel the pain felt by each and every citizen during difficult budgetary times.

2. All politicians need to be fiscally penalized when a yearly budget isn't brought in on time.  This would occur on a state level on down to a county and city level as well.  For each day past the due date, politicians would be penalized that day's pay.  And the pay, once a budget was met, would not be due retroactively.  For each day past the budget due date, that pay is lost.  Period.

Only when and if there are actual consequences to poor or late decisions -- as in the real world -- will these persons begin to understand that logic and common sense must rule each and every day.

GREAT POST. You should run for office in California BZ. They need more people like you with your common sense.

Hey... On a side note, get a load of this.. I found it on Drudge. Even Russsians can see our demise into Marxism, but you have to read it because it is what we have been saying for so long. Yet,we are looked upon as Kooks to have the gall to think Obama is even a socialist let alone a Marxist. I just think this guy's analysis is dead on. Especially how he ties it into the past 20 years how we have been heading in this direction.

It is as if we don't think it is possible for us to be led down this road and no one seems to think this could really happen if we elect conservatives in 2010 and 2012.. Well with the media and the left 'Alinskying' any and all of our real conservative candidates, how in the world are we going to win?

That is the problem with legislators exempting themselves from the law via legislation. Everyone is covered under OSHA rules, except Congress, of course. Regulations on hiring/firing practices? Oh, Congress doesn't need those, now, does it? Workplace safety? Why do Congresscritters need that stuff?

Of course they are on a different 'budgetary unit': they are more important than the common man and deserve 'special' treatment.

Government needs to be reminded that they serve the people, not the other way around, and a personal administration of petroleum jelly with latex gloves to remove their heads from their backsides needs to be performed.

Tar, feathering and run out of town on a rail is a good second choice.

Alot of people are saying that Obama cant take this country down. Its just to big for one man to do.
And that we will stop him in the 2010 elections.
Please remember history!!!
How long was Gobachev in power before the Soviet Union disintegrated?
It disintegrated in less than 2 yrs and VERY quickly. The disassociation of the US may well be a good thing the less removed the govt is from the people that empower it the better. But that is not Obama and his handlers goal. Their goal is the subjugation of the most powerfull country on earth
