As unemployment handouts dry up for people, they are complaining about a lack of jobs. But don't these people realize that we needed to defy our own Declaration of Independence by make sure the military has more power than civilians? And not just here, but we need to force a militaristic attitude on all countries.
And to make sure that happens, yellow politicians have made sure we are in an untold number of wars around the planet. The more generals and secret agents we create the more we can drain money from everyone else.
So stop your whining over lack of food, having your car or house repossessed, and your other unpatriotic complaints. Don't you realize we need to tax you to the heavens and borrow money from foreign governments enough money so we can pay our retired generals $10,000+ per month?
… Compared to the excessive pay handed out to the top ranking officials of most major corporations these days, I’d say this isn’t too terrible.
… The pension plan he would receive of $149k a year is chump change compared to what other high ranking offcials in the private (ie large cap ceo’s) and government sector are getting for their pension plans in our country today.
… Yes, 100,000 plus per year is a lot compared to the average salary, but it should not be compared to an average salary. It should be compared to CEO of a major corporation, and then some, and feeling the personal responsibility responsible for the lives of many young men and women under his command.
You will have no sympathy for me. It is that exact mindset which has driven our country morally, intellectually, and financially bankrupt.
Just because CEO's and other executives of U.S. corporations are raping the citizens is no excuse for government employees to do the same!
Please see this graph:
And before you jump to all the dumbest conclusions possible, as though I am saying the lowest paid employee should now be earning the exact same as the highest paid, that is not what I am saying. I am saying there is an obscene and unjustifiable disparity.
But since I'm a religious guy, and don't believe in violence, etc… I just try to take it in stride. So my message to you all: repent and bear the fruits of repentance! Be sure to check out the parable of Lazarus and the beggar to see what you have coming. Remember, it's not just the Devil, the Beast, and the False Prophet that are tossed in the fiery lake of burning sulfur, its his butt-kissing angels too.
