No Governmental health care till we see some functioning agencies

Ok let’s talk about Government efficiency.  How many government agencies can you point to and say, “Wow they sure know what they’re doing”?  Waiting….
Yeah that’s what I thought.  See before I can buy into anymore government programs I want to see some agencies that are already working.

 
I’ve worked in the Government for many years now and I know first had the methodology is to spend everything you have then ask for more.  This isn’t because you need it but it’s because if you don’t you will get less next year while some department down the road will get what you didn’t use.  So to save and spend wisely isn’t productive.  There is absolutely no incentive to save or not spend your entire budget. 

The administration and democrats would have us all believe health care would be different?  How?  What in the bureaucracy would change?  Government spending went from out of control to insane.  Yet we would add more to the growing debt?  Is this sound?

 
A certain amount of deficit spending at times can be understood.  But we have gone well past that point.  That point is where the economy can still come back and pay the debt off.  With trillions of possible debt and an economy that is floundering is additional debt at this time smart. 

No, government regulators couldn’t handle the rules in the financial sector as it was what would possess us to think that whole (more) organizations of governmental workers would be better?  

 

You can insert any chart you like since they all look very much alike. 

“Hope and Change”  Whoo hoooo

Work out music

What music do you listen to when working out?  I’ve gone through different phases of music from Country to classical.  My latest artist to make the workout list is DIO.  Yes “Holy diver” DIO.  It’s got a ZEN like feel when working out.  Now this isn’t a Yoga type ZEN but a steel working type ZEN.  Yes I’m getting old.  That doesn’t mean the music isn’t good.  Hell I bet 11th ACR still listens to the “White Album”……

Store owner takes out robbers..hard…

This is how its done folks.

They strode into the restaurant supply store in Harlem shortly after 3 p.m. on Thursday, four young men intent on robbery, one with a Glock 9-millimeter pistol, the police said. The place may have looked like an easy mark, a high-cash business with an owner in his 70s, known as a gentle, soft-spoken man.

There were no customers in the store, only Mr. Augusto and two employees, a man and a woman. The police said the invaders announced a holdup, approached the two employees and tried to place plastic handcuffs on them. The male employee, a 35-year-old known in the community as J. B., struggled with the gunman, who then hit him on the head with the pistol.

Watching it happen, Mr. Augusto, whom neighborhood friends call Gus, rose from a chair 20 to 30 feet away and took out a loaded Winchester 12-gauge pump-action shotgun with a pistol-grip handle. The police said he bought it after a robbery 30 years ago.

The first shot took down the gunman at the front. He died almost immediately, according to the police, who said he was 29 and had been arrested for gun possession in Queens last year and was the nephew of a police officer.

Mr. Augusto’s other two blasts hit all three accomplices, who stumbled out the door, bleeding.

lets see recession, lets buy congress more private planes.. yeah thats a good idea

So a CEO in a private company should be a shamed to fly to DC in a private jet but.. Congress…well thats different. 

WASHINGTON — Bipartisan opposition is emerging in the Senate to a plan by House lawmakers to spend $550 million for additional passenger jets for senior government officials.

The resistance to buying eight Gulfstream and Boeing planes comes as members of both chambers of Congress embark on the busiest month of the year for official overseas travel. The plan to upgrade the fleet of government jets, which was included in a broader defense-funding bill, has also sparked criticism from the Pentagon, which has said it doesn’t need half of the new jets.

Why America is in trouble.

 SEATTLE —  A Seattle bank teller has lost his job because he ran down a would-be bank robber and held him until police arrived.

Jim Nicholson, who worked at a Key Bank branch, says he understands the bank’s policy that employees comply with robbery demands and avoid dangerous confrontations. But he tells The Seattle Times that his instincts took over when the man demanded money during the Tuesday incident.

Nicholson says he tried to grab the man, then chased him several blocks before knocking him down with help from a passer-by. The man turned out to be unarmed.

The 30-year-old Nicholson was fired Thursday. Key Bank officials declined to comment, but Seattle police and the FBI say they advise tellers against acting against robbers. Instead, police Sgt. Sean Whitcomb says, they should be good witnesses and comply with demands unless their personal safety is in jeopardy.

Aren’t we doing this backwards.  Shouldn’t this guy have been promoted for protecting the assets of the bank and the banks clients.  Hummmm
