For some reason....I was thinking about how important Teachers, Policemen/Women, and Firemen/women were. Don't ask me why.....but there it is !
Then it hit me......Teachers, Policemen/Women, and Firemen/women, in my mind are Uber Important....but......Seems our illustrious president (Lower case used on purpose) found them to be worthy of pawns in his little evil scheme !
What made me say that......well....lets look at Obama and his Cute little rantings in order to spend more money.
Barrack Obama at North Carolina State:
"Pass this jobs bill and there will be funding to save the jobs of up to 13,000 North Carolina teachers, cops and firefighters."
Barrack Obamas address to Congress:
Obama's plan calls for more than $140 billion in direct aid to states meant to keep teachers and first responders on the job
Then you have his little minions going around the country doing his bidding:
"The bill we are introducing today continues that focus by creating or saving approximately 400,000 jobs for teachers, cops and first responders," the Democratic leader promised.
Barrack Obamas Campaign:
President Barack Obama’s presidential campaign continued to pounce Saturday on Mitt Romney for his comments opposing more stimulus measures, claiming they show the GOP presidential candidate isn’t on the side of teachers and first responders.
So lets look at reality shall we.
Barrack Obama was tearing at our heart strings when he pushed his.....well........Crud !
Honestly....I didn't know that the government only supplied jobs to Teachers, Policemen/Women, and Firemen/women !
Government sector has many institutions and organizations that cover a range of industries and sectors. This makes finding a field or type of job of your choice much easier.
So my thoughts are........WTF !
[The federal government] uses contracts, grants, and mandates to state and local governments to hide its true size, thereby creating the illusion that it is smaller than it actually is, and give its departments and agencies much greater flexibility in hiring labor, thereby creating the illusion that the civil-service system is somehow working effectively. . . .
Contractors and grantees do not keep count of their employees, in part because doing so would allow the federal government . . . to estimate actual labor costs.
Here is his estimate: 11 million, broken down as follows: 1.8 million civil servants, 870,000 postal workers, 1.4 million military personnel, 4.4 million contractors, and 2.5 million grantees. These figures are from 2006.
Yet the federal government isn’t all. Despite its huge budgets, state and local governments dwarf Washington in direct employment. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 3.8 million full-time and 1.5 million part-time employees on state payrolls. Local governments add a further 11 million full-time and 3.2 million part-time personnel. This means that state and local governments combined employ 19.5 million Americans.
When we add up the true size of the federal workforce — civil servants, postal workers, military personnel, contractors, grantees, and bailed-out businesses — and add in state- and local-government employees — civil servants, teachers, firefighters, and police officers — we reach the astonishing figure of nearly 40 million Americans employed in some way by government. That means that about 17 percent of the American labor pool — one in every six workers — owes its living to the taxpayer.
Sooooo.....back to my initial wonder (I DID ask you to bare/bear with me...right?)....Why would President Barrack Hussien Obama "USE" only Teachers, Policemen/Women, and Firemen/women to try to get something passed.
I'll tell you why.....He's a politician that "USES YOU" to get what he wants.
Teachers, Policemen/women and Firemen/women have been laid off all over the country.....no matter how many times President Barrack Hussien Obama weeps for them and promises them the world.
So the next time you hear a speech from President Barrack Hussien Obama singling out specific groups this year....you can truthfully say.......PFFFFFTTTTTT !
