Most states, counties and cities and federal gov't jobs the employees do not have to pay into the pension fund. Some states do.
Those states where the employee pays into the fund, the funds are on rather sound footing, that is up until Obama. With the Federal controlled interest rates these funds are starting to see problems. Prior to Obama these fund were earning about 5-6% interest. Today they are earning maybe 1%.
Also, many of these retirement plans are very unfair with the benefits they pay. Within a state, some retirees get a COLA, others do not. Some retire with 100% of benefits at age 50 while others must be 62 and in a few cases 65.
Again, politicians promise great increases in pensions if they get elected. What most of you voters don't realize, they raise your taxes to pay for this. I
In most states gov't employees earn an average of about 30% more than the tax payer. As Jesus said, "It ain't right for poor people to give their hard earned money to gov't so gov't employees can live so much better". Paraphrased.
Gov't officials pick and choose which laws to enforce. Spend a zillion over cows feeding on gov't land,, but allow illegal a free hand. No penalty for them violating the law. Our gov't reps have gone to pot. MO.
Watch out the gov't may choose you next.
Recall? No. Run him out of town just with the clothes on his back,, like exile him from NV for life. MO.
Since Jimmy Carter, any idea how many radical muslims have been admitted to the country. They do not believe in free speech and free religion. MO.
ACA did not fix the problem of un insured Americans. Most young people that I know do not make enough money to pay for essentials, first: rent, food, clothing, car payment, car Insurance, dating, cell phone plus some other stuff. In their mind, if you are healthy you do not need insurance. Usually health insurance starts becoming important after age 35.. MO This is the way I was.
The possible merger of S and TMUS have anything to do with the FCC reserving spectrum for the small wireless companies????
I thought that when the gov't mandated employers give a $2.85/hour raise everyone would get it. The president has been preaching "fair". This ain't fair.
Water supply. I understand that the water used in Cincinnati out of the Ohio River has been used at least 5 times before Cincinnati gets and uses it. I guess this is from sewer, factories, car washes, irrigation, etc, etc and etc. No one complains.
You better go back and re research Taliban treatment of women.
should not be allowed to hold public office If a kid is caught with drugs he goes to jail. But, self confessed drug users are praised and get elected to public office. This is not right.
If Obama & Clinton have confessed to using drugs and suffered no penalty, I believe all drug use should be de criminalized. Stop putting people in prison for using drugs. Just my opinion. It is nice to think we can save everyone from themselves,, but jail is not the answer.
Aren't the police allowed to have a moon lighting job? These officers are self employed, breaking the law. If they are not paying their taxes, they are committing crimes and should be fired. We should not allow violators of the law to be employed as police officers. MO
liar:--- a person that tells a lie.
lie -- a false statement
How many times has Obama just with respect to ACA made a false statement? Since he has made a false statement, therefore he told a lie, therefore Obama is a liar. Using Websters dictionary for definitions. JMHO......
When I tell my wife a false statement, she calls me a liar. So.
What you are missing with the 'fair tax' is the amount of money the gov't would save. Just the salaries from IRS workers would save the gov't billions. There would not be any need for all of the accountants. But, don't worry, the corrupt idiots we have elected can not understand this. Another great savings for the gov't for all federal employees salary be reduced the amount of tax they pay. Gov't gives with one hand and takes back with the other.
As the U S Supreme Court ruled in 1935 that minimum wage was not smart, elected reps are still not smart. JMO.
What has irked me, is with all of the great democrat black people that are and were available for office the black community jumped upon the back of this loser. This man as far as I can determine from what I have read before and up to now was and is one of the most undesirable people for this high office. He has a history of many untruths; would not reveal any personal records; a sympathizer to radical islam; no experience; drug user; associate of Chicago undesirables,; etc etc and etc. JMHO.
I think you should go back and re read the story of Noah, especially about the creatures he took on board. You have it all wrong. Preachers and story tellers don't tell the whole story. Shame on them.
