Bloviating Zeppelin: You Make Too Much Money

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.

You Make Too Much Money


I'll keep it simple today:

Mr Obama is appointing a "Pay Czar" in order "to ensure that companies receiving federal bailout funds are abiding by executive-pay guidelines."

Do the logical extension, ladies and gentlemen. Would it be so terribly far to wonder if the Obama Administration may soon one day be examining your pay to see if you make "too much money"? May they one day be setting the pay of your company in terms of "fairness" and "equality"? And what of retirees? May they not conclude your pension is "too much" and cut it -- perhaps then deciding you must pay back an "unfair excess" to the government? You think that's simply impossible?

Exactly. When will it stop? Where is the line drawn? Do the logical extension with this 'pay czar' appointment combined with all the other things he is doing and the logical extension is almost too obvious. Of course you won't convince the tin foil hats on the left.

Of course, this can STILL all be turned around come 2010 and 2012. We will know a lot in 2010.

I have been a supporter of Palin for several reasons.. #1. The libs hate her, #2. She has solid unbendable principles she adheres too and isn't afraid to say so even under tons of pressure..A small example when I know there are tons of others, but this one impressed me: During the debate with biden, she was the ONLY ONE who stated her true belief that man made global warming wasn't true. That took guts. Newt bended on that.
#3. She won't bend to the establishment types.. She hasn't done it in Alaska.
#4. She is tough, smart and much more qualified than Hussein Obama. She WILL clean up Washington on both sides of the isle.
#5. She is respected because of her HIGH QUALIFICATIONS regarding knowlede in the field of energy and her success in this area. She will push for drilling on our own home turf. This is a huge issue right now and an issue that she is on the right side of.
#6. I think she has the guts to overturn most of what Obama has done whereas another moderate Repub. won't.

There is more, but I really think she has what it takes. The only thing that will bring her down is more Saturday night live Tina Fey impersonations of her.

Going after people who make too much money? Let's start with Oprah's salary.

Be careful BZ, you'll offend the delicate sensitivities of certain readers if you criticize the 1st COW on her wardrobe or physical appearance...

And you really can't make decisions about your health, so the government will just decide who deserves to be healthy and who doesn't... and if you are retired, well, you just may have to get to the back of the bus. Those cars you drive? Nope, you can't decide on that, either, plus you need a tire inflation czar to get you out to check your tires each and every day.

Welcome to do-good, be nice, smiley faced Fascism. Where big companies and big labor are in bed with big government and you, dear plebes, get what you deserve. All for the 'greater good' of course! Because you just aren't smart enough to live your life the 'right' way or think the 'right' way or eat the 'right' way... you work for the State now.

You have no liberty.

You have no freedom.

Because you, dear citizens, wanted government to do 'good', and have made a necessary evil an absolute one.

Left and Right, both.

In forgetting Franklin we now must remember Paine...

I'm part of the 0.05% that likes Palin....

My favorite is, "A Fish Called Wanda".

Although I think that many executive salaries are out of line with their worth to the company the govt should HAVE NO SAY in their salaries. The shareholders however should have more say in setting those limits.

Thank God there are real Conservatives out there.

Running Sarah Palin in 2012 is a guarantee that Obama will get re-elected.

We now know that after todays polls that Real Conservatives don't support her, it's just a small group of faux Conservatives that don't seem to get it.

In todays polls the question was, "Who speaks for the Republican Party?". Palins name never came up.

No links, it was all over the news today.

I didn't vote for McCain/Palin and I seriously have my doubts that I would support a Palin/Anyone ticket in 2012, but if Obama continues as he has, you could run Donald Duck and Huey P. Long and get THEM elected...

The GOP wants to do SO much, what the GOP needs to do is get their shit together, put forth a true leader, not some recycled guy like Mr. Newt or John McLame, there has got to be some young, dynamic GOP people out there, some GOP guys that are NOT Dem Lite, GOP guys that are REAL Conservatives and have a clue about NOT speaking in the 3rd person.

If they don't find those people, the GOP can forget it once again, the lesser of the evils is STILL by God EVIL. Run decent candidates or continue to be Dem Lite and a known loser..

How simple can it be??

Can you imagine what happens WHEN Obama gets his clock cleaned by WHOEVER the Repubs put up instead of a real conservative?
There is a good chance the Repubs will not find a real leader and we end up with a limp-wrist-fishy-handshake McDem type being put in office. Then another Carter-like Dem gets in the time after that because the McDem was so ineffectual and the MSM driven electorate wants change again.
Not to woory the world ends in December of 2012 anyway!!!

If they accepted bailout money they should have a pay czar. I hate this incursion into private industry but it isn't quite private anymore is it?IF a company asked for TARP money and IF they were granted it, then they need to do what the government tells them to do.

If a company was FORCED into receiving TARP money and repaid it or has made arrangements to repay we are in different waters.

These are the types of conundrums that arise when socialism rears its head. You all well know that the bailouts sent me over the edge and made me lose hope in either party to do anything for our economy.

Here we are though...Frankly a lot of creditors and banks that got bailout funds are suing debtors, people that got behind on their bills due to the economy and so forth.

If the bank accepted TARP money, then they should not have the legal standing to sue taxpayers. After all, taxpayers are keeping their asses afloat right now.

If TARP never happened, then a pay czar and so forth would be moot but now it is a complex issue and difficult to entangle these issues...

BTW: TF your off color comments about our Presidents' wife are yours to make. But I pointed out previously that your ire was seemingly unfounded calling her a bitch. I don't understand why you are into attacking her so much.

I don't care for her very much at all but I don't consider her to be a bitch nor a cow and frankly I'm content to attack our Presidents foolish policies rather then go after his kinfolk.

They don't have shit to do with the foul choices that HE makes. Therefore YES your comments are lame because you're basically talking shit just because and its infantile!

TF:
Is that the best you can do? You like to shoot off at the mouth and talk shit about people's families and when called on your irrational behavior you simply tell me to fuck myself?

You are an impotent man for which Viagra could do no good. You ought to stop messing with me you good for nothing asshole because otherwise you'll get told.


I am a civil person but you are trying to test my limits. Well if you weren't an impotent fuck, I'd tell you to fuck yourself. But instead since that ain't gonna happen, I'll tell you to visit your best friend tonight; your hand you stupid asshole!
