Harry Reid Leader of Cowardly Senate Democrats

senate cowards Source Election-year fears slow Senate work to a halt

A fear of voting has gripped Democratic leaders in the Senate, slowing the chamber’s modest productivity this election season to a near halt.

With control of the Senate at risk in November, leaders are going to remarkable lengths to protect endangered Democrats from casting tough votes and to deny Republicans legislative victories in the midst of the campaign.

In the Appropriations Committee, long accustomed to a freewheeling process, chairwoman Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., has held up action on three spending bills, apparently to head off politically difficult votes on changes to the divisive health care law as well as potential losses to Republicans on amendments such as McConnell’s on the coal industry.

Democratic leaders are trying especially hard to protect Mark Begich of Alaska, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana.

Fuzzy Math – Obama Claims 8 million Signup for ObamaCare

When will the other 306 million Americans be enrolled in ObamaCare?

Senator Harry Reid, NV Does Not Give A Damn About American Citizens

Harry Reid set to become instant Billionaire.

There are almost 100 million working-age Americans no longer working. More Americans are today on entitlements than working in the private sector. More Americans are on food stamps than the number of women working in America. Iran is building a nuclear bomb. Russian jet fighters are threatening American ships.

It has been pointed out by journalists that a $5 billion Chinese solar project backed by Reid was recently shelved. But what they forgot to mention is Reid’s involvement in multiple solar and wind projects across the Nevada desert. Only days ago, Senator Reid was featured in a photo at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new solar project. Just 35 miles from the Bundy ranch in
Bunkerville, Nevada.

Senator Reid’s fingers are in virtually every solar and wind project in the Nevada desert. Green energy is his obsession. Green energy is his baby. His vision is turning the Nevada desert into the “Green Energy Capital of America.”

Who benefits from that vision? Democratic donors who run green energy companies. Who stands in the way of that vision- Nevada’s ranchers, farmers and property owners- almost all of whom are diehard Tea Party conservatives and patriots who despise Reid.

Reid and the BLM needed a “cover story” to take the land away from the ranchers (Heavily armed BLM employees). So they claim it’s about protecting the “endangered” desert tortoise.

But if the protection of the desert tortoise was so important to the BLM, why did the same BLM kill hundreds of desert tortoises last fall?

If protecting the tortoises was so important, why has the BLM constantly waived rules protecting the desert tortoise for multiple solar and wind projects?

African-Americans contend it is “sacred ground” and no place to play baseball

Source Virginia ballpark proposal stirs slave-trade memories
RICHMOND, Va. A proposal to build a ballpark in the slave trading center of the former capital of the Confederacy has stirred opposition from African Americans who contend it is “sacred ground” and no place to play baseball.

WTF is this all about? Slave trade and the civil war ended 150 years ago.
To African descendants I say Grow up, Get a life, get a hobby, get a brain. There is no one alive that had anything to do with slave ownership or slave trade!

Sacred Ground my ass! This is an economic development project in Shockoe Bottom, the city’s oldest neighborhood. designed to pull the poor up the economic ladder for better life’s and living conditions.

Supporters of the stadium have countered that brick-and-mortar remnants of the slave trade have long ago disappeared. They also have proposed a slave memorial and a $30 million museum as part of the project.

Mayor Dwight C. Jones who is African American, said this issue is “very personal” to him and the overall development will create jobs and economic growth for the city of 200,000.

USA population 317 million – Obama celebrates 7 million ObamaCare signups

The population of the USA is about 317 million people.

If true, Obamas claim of 7 million ObamaCare signups is a single drop in a large bucket.

260,000 Collage Graduates working for minimum wages

About 260,000 people who have a college or professional degrees make at or below the federal/state minimum wage last year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

A self inflicted wound. A high percentage of graduates made bad university degree choices. Choosing to take the easy way to a collage/university degree.
The ‘Real’ truth is taking the Easy way to a degree choosing to major in things like Arts, Performing arts, Music, Dance, Archaeology and many other degree programs are low demand degrees and have little or no demand in the ‘real’ modern day job market.

The fact is few employers have a need for an employee with a degree in English literature or someone with a teaching degree. These degrees are of little benefit to most business owners/operators.

University students and graduates would be wise to consider investing in an education and training in professions like carpentry, electrical wiring installation and repair, plumbing, machinist or as a welder. That’s where the real demand is for business ‘new’ hire employees.

A sign of things to come. Dam Shame: Hoover dam workforce nears retirement, goverment scrambles to fill jobs
millions of Americans unable to find a job that lasting symbol of worker pride and strength no longer is attracting the attention of America’s skilled workforce.

A wave of retirements is about to hit Hoover dam. Two-fifths of the dam’s current employees will be eligible for retirement in the next five years, leaving the government scrambling to fill 40 upcoming vacancies ranging from $40,000 to $90,000 dollars a year.

The Interior Department agency that oversees Hoover dam is moving to fast-track hiring for its department-wide openings. But the dam’s aging workforce mostly baby boomers closing in on retirement age, are part of a specialized group of hydroelectric engineers and electricians with a skill set not widely taught or available across much of the country or in universities.

Senate Harry Reid – More Democrat Bull S#$t – More Government Welfare Checks

idiot of 2014 Source Senate will vote on jobless benefits
Only the second day of 2014 and Senator Harry Reid has taken the lead for 2014’s Idiot of the year award.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says senate will vote Monday on extending long term jobless benefits.

The truth is long term jobless are either (1) Lazy and don’t want a job. (2) Not qualified to be employed in today’s high tech work force, (3) are self important, believing blue collar jobs are below them and refuse to except blue collar employment, (4) Have their sights for employment set far to high and are unable or unwilling to learn new skills needed in today’s job market place.

Stupid thing to say Harry Reid blames hard working Tax Paying Citizens saying “the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, the middle class is getting squeezed and it’s just not fair.”
Who the hell ever said life is fair?

Free Loaders Have been allowed long-term unemployed checks (Paid for by hard working Tax Payers) in states like Nevada (Senator Harry Reid’s home state) to receive extended benefits for up to 99 weeks.

I’d like to be paid by the U.S. government set on my ass, at home for almost 2 years!

SeaTac, WA. New $15.00 Minimum Wage Killing Businesses

Source Businesses brace for ‘serious cuts
Employers are looking for ways to absorb the big increase in labor costs. Some plan on eliminating jobs.

Cedarbrook Lodge General Manager Scott Ostrander said “We’re going to be looking at reducing employee hours, reducing benefits and eliminating some positions.”

One business has told a trade group it is going to close one of its two restaurants, eliminating 200 jobs.

Han Kim who runs Hotel Concepts, a company that owns and manages 11 hotels in Washington state (will) shelve plans to build a hotel in SeaTac.

King County, Wash., judge ruled $15 minimum wage does not apply to any of the workers at the SeaTac airport. Superior Court Judge Andrea Darvas ruled only the Port of Seattle can set wage and other work rules at the airport. That eliminates 4,700 workers from the ‘New’ minimum wage law.

American Car Rental Association estimates 5 percent of low wage jobs will be cut and another 5-10 percent of those workers will be replaced by more experienced workers.

The owner of Dollar Rental Cars said she’ll outsource some functions, change schedules and cut some staff in response to the new policy.

Detroit, MI. Largest Municipal Bankruptcy In U.S. History

Detroit, MI A depleted tax base: The city’s white population has declined by 1.4 million since the 1950s, leaving behind an almost entirely African-American population. The remaining tax base continues to decline as unemployment stays stubbornly high.

Detroit signed up for $1.6 billion in loan deals exposing the city to finical risk they knew Detroit could not afford to take.
Detroit’s public employee’s salaries, heath insurance and retirement pension payments were excessively generous and expensive and unsustainable forcing Detroit into bankruptcy.

Detroit is a city sustained by federal and state welfare payments, Food Stamps(SNAP) and unemployment checks.

Detroit is a city with a huge percent of it’s citizens unemployed. Many unemployed are not seeking employment satisfied to set at home waiting for their next welfare check and Food Stamps(SNAP). A high percentage of the unemployed prefer to set at home rather than go to work for a minimum wage paycheck.

Greece – Better To Die With Food On The Table Than Being Hungry

Source Half of HIV Infections in Greece Are Self-Inflicted
Greek citizens are infecting themselves with HIV in order to receive 700 euros in government benefits.
Greece has been among Europe’s hardest hit, with its debt crisis causing the country’s economy to shrink.

According to reports, suicides soared by 17% in Greece between 2007 and 2009 and then another 25% in 2010. As the crisis deepened in the first half of 2011, suicide attempts surged 40%. Greece’s unemployment rate stood at an alarming level of 26.9% as of September, tops in the euro zone. After Spain, which had a 26% unemployment rate, the next closest country is Portugal at 16.3%.

Health care access has declined due to a 40% cut in hospital budgets. An estimated 26,000 public health workers, including 9,100 doctors, are expected to lose their jobs.

Obama’s Go Green Plan, Bleeding More Red Ink! Losing Yet Another $139 Millions Dollars

Source Taxpayers on hook for $139 million after loan to failed green automaker is sold
Tax Payers to Obama Three strikes and your Out. Obama and his White House Gang are still clueless!

Taxpayers are on the hook for a $139 million dollar tab after the U.S. Department of Energy gamble on a green automaker went into the red $139 million dollars filed bankruptcy.
Obama administration announced it will lose $139 million on a government loan to struggling electric car maker Fisker Automotive Inc.

This transaction brings to an end another effort by the Obama administration to use public funds to stimulate green initiatives. Awarded a $529 million loan guarantee by the administration in 2009 to produce the Karma, a $103,000 luxury hybrid car.

The government lost $528 million in the Solyndra collapse, (An Obama hand picked ‘Green’ Business”) triggering sharp Republican criticism of the loan program and President Barack Obama’s investments in green energy.

Department of Energy lost about $42 million on a loan to a shuttered Michigan company that made vans for the disabled. Vehicle Production Group, or VPG, suspended operations in February and laid off 100 workers.

The venture capital firm Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield and Byers where Al Gore is a partner was a seed investor in Fisker and spent $400,000 in 2009 and 2010 on lobbying. The firm helped push for the stimulus bill that handed out $90 billion in green energy programs.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., vice chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee said” “Once again, American taxpayers are losing out to foreign investors due to the Obama administration’s failed green energy policies.” “Time after time this administration has fumbled the ball with their attempts to pick winners and losers when it comes to American energy.”

New York City Mayor (I’m an Idiot) Michael Bloomberg Wants To Ban Styrofoam

Rosemary Nunez, owner of La Nueva Estrella El Castillo restaurant in Brooklyn said “This is just another example of the mayors administration trampling on the interests of the people who create jobs in this city.”

The American Chemistry Council said “replacing foam cups and trays with the lowest cost alternatives would cost $91.3 million. The trade group study said there are 1,215 employees in the Styrofoam industry in New York City whose jobs would are at stake if a New York City Styrofoam ban is imposed.

Government Shut Down – Another Government lie – Is This Really A Bad Thing?

Who will not be effected by the so called government shut down.
Departments and agencies that stay open during a shutdown are those directly related to national security and public safety. Isn’t that ‘All’ federal government is mandated to do?

Obama’s ObamaCare(ACA) will continue to drain away trillions of Tax Payer dollars.
Military will get payed, U.S. Government law enforcement, DOJ, FBI, BATF, DHS(Department of HomeLand Security), Border patrol, Customs service, U.S. Marshals service are open for business.
Americas spy agencies, CIA, NSA.
IRS will continue to hound Tax payers and business.
Obama and his White House gang(staff) will not scale back their socialist agenda.
Government workers classified as essential workers will remain on government payrolls.
Social Security payments and Medicare will continue under normal operations.
Unemployment benefits will not be effected.
Air traffic control falls in the “essential” category, so planes should still be able to take off and land.
Food Stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) will continue to give away free food.

Other less known agencies Not Effected by government shut down: Department of Veterans Affairs, U.S. courts, U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Armed Forces Retirement Home, Appalachian Regional Commission, Bureau of Public Debt, Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency, Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, Fiscal Service Treasury Finance Fund, Department of Health and Human Services, Congressional offices, Kennedy Center, Peace Corps.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of agencies that will not be shut down.

Non-essential workers will be sent home. Some estimate that as many as 800,000 federal employees are non-essential.
* 97 percent of NASA employees will be furloughed.
* 94 percent of EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) will be sent home without pay.
* 87 percent of Department of Commerce employees
* 80 percent of Department of Treasury employees
* 50 percent of Department of Defense employees
* 33 percent of Transportation Department employees will be furloughed
* 15 percent of Department of Justice employees

If all these people are non-essential, Why the hell are they on the federal government payroll?

National Park Service to close parks and monuments.
21,000 over paid, under worked Nation Park Service employees may be furloughed.
** Will ‘Most’ working Americans care that tourist can’t visit parks and monuments paid for by working Tax Payers?

Unemployed – To Be Required To Work To Qualify For Benefits

U.S. should follow UK’s lead in jobless benefit payments.

UK gets it right. UK – Britons who are out of work will be required to work full (30 hours a week) time on community projects to receive state unemployment payments.

Starting April 2014, the long term unemployed will be forced to either work 30 hours a week of community work such as picking up litter, making food for the elderly, working for charity or attend a job center everyday.

People who break the rules once will lose four weeks of benefit worth about $370 dollars. While a second infringement could cost them three months of unemployment payments.

All long term unemployed people who are capable of work will be required to do something in return for their benefits to help them find work. For those with problems, like drug addiction and illiteracy, there will be an intensive regime of help.
