You’ve all heard this. If you want to be a leader or role model etc … lead by example.
Now let’s look at a few recent …
Al Gore rails on the evils of fossil fuel … sells his “Current TV” to an oil shiek.
Sylvester Stallone crys about the evil of gun violence … his latest movie “Bullet to the Head.”
Obama during 2012 election is focused like a laser on jobs … fires his jobs council. They must have been doing a poor job!
WASHINGTON – As new weekly jobs numbers emerged Thursday showing a jump in unemployment claims and a report released the previous day showed the economy shrinking in late 2012, President Obama is effectively laying off his jobs council.
The council itself, a group of business and labor leaders, hasn’t met officially in more than a year. The group was tasked with making recommendations to Obama to help create jobs, but the 26 members only met four times in two years.
See what Jack is saying.
Oh and one more.
Allah told Muhammad muslims are allowed 4 wifes … Mo takes 12.
Warren Buffet says TAX ME and all others that make alot of money! Thing is all he has to do is cut a check to IRS which he has not done. What he has done is continue to play the tax code for all it’s worth and retained every penny he can to maximize his wealth.
He leads exactly as Obama leads. Not by example for sure.
This is what happens when you refuse to compromise. Now the media will turn this into the Big Bad Hostess Co. killing jobs. Fact is 18,000+ more on the unemployment dole. And really how many companies are out their recruiting bakers?
Jack works for a publically traded electric utility. The company he works for owns four nuke plants in the Northeast that are up and running (never lost generation). The company he works has sent 100’s of tool workers to help with restoration. He knows how sensitive union/non union issues can be. He has NEVER seen this happen in an emergency like the Northeast is having at this time.
This is NOT cutting the “RED TAPE” Obama eluded to.
There is “no excuse for inaction,” Obama said after a brief unscheduled visit to Red Cross headquarters in Washington. “I want you to cut through red tape; I want you to cut through the bureaucracy. There is no excuse for inaction at this point.”
Oh and don’t get Jack started on that Red Cross shit!
The Labor Department said Monday that it has yet to make a decision on whether to delay Friday’s closely-watched October employment report due to the effects from Hurricane Sandy.
Bloomberg NewsFederal government offices in Washington are closed Monday and may be shut again Tuesday due to the storm. It isn’t clear if the closure would cause a delay in processing the data.
“We will assess the situation when the weather emergency is over and notify the press and public of any changes at that time,” said Gary Steinberg, spokesman for the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the data arm of the department.
The Labor Department is also scheduled to release its third quarter employment cost index Wednesday, and the third quarter productivity and weekly jobless claims reports Thursday.
The most closely watched is Friday’s jobs report, which will give the final measure the unemployment ahead of next week’s presidential election.
Attorney General Eric Holder ordered two federal prosecutors tonight to open criminal investigations into a series of national security leaks to the news media.
Holder appointed Ron Machen, the U.S. attorney for the District of Colombia, and Rod Rosenstein to lead the criminal investigations into recent leaks concerning a disrupted bomb plot by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and a New York Times story about President Obama ordering cyber-attacks against Iran with the Stuxnet computer worm.
“These two highly-respected and experienced prosecutors will be directing separate investigations currently being conducted by the FBI,” Holder said in a statement. “I have every confidence in their abilities to doggedly follow the facts and the evidence in the pursuit of justice, wherever it leads.”
These national security leaks have been going on for months and months and now AFTER Democrats and Republicans called for congressional investigations he decides to keep it in house.
Eric Holder/DOJ refuses to comply with congressional investigation (Fast and Furious).
Eric Holder/DOJ has intervened at every step of the way in Obamacare case in courts.
Eric Holder/DOJ has intervened in every state case involved with voter ID.
Eric Holder/DOJ has intervened in every state case involved with immigration. Eric Holder/DOJ refuses to provide documents from jihadi investigation.
“On April 27, 2011, members of this committee asked you to give us information surrounding the decision by a justice to forgo prosecution of the unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation case. This is the largest terrorism finance case, of course, in U.S. history. You’ve refused to comply with this request,” Franks said to Holder.
“It’s hard for me to answer that question – ” Holder started.
“No it’s not. It’s not hard to answer. It’s will you or will you not,” Franks interrupted.
There are many more … these are just the highlights.
The tight U.S. economy has turned even essential goods into luxuries. Now consumer-goods companies are seeing something they thought would never come to pass: Parents are buying fewer diapers.
Spending on children has traditionally held steady in times of recession, including the most recent one, with parents sacrificing other items rather than scrimping on their children’s hygiene or happiness.
But as the economy continues to sputter, recent data show diaper sales are slowing and sales of diaper-rash ointment are rising.
And what are the MSM pushing. Same thing Jack is pushing. ABO (anything but Obama) Thing is ABO for MSM is saying it’s anything but Obama’s fault. Jack is saying he’ll take anybody but Obama come November elections.
What do all these women legislators have in common?
Well they are ALL women. They are ALL democrats. They are ALL sponsers of a bill that would make law … equal pay for women.
But here is the rub … they ALL pay their female staff less than their male staff.(some FAR less)
“Of the five senators who participated in Wednesday’s press conference—Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., Patty Murray, D-Wash, Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. —three pay their female staff members significantly less than male staffers,” WFB said.
Now Jack has no objection with paying females on par with male workers. But this is a case of … Do as I Say … NOT as I do because these women COULD pay their female staff equally with their male staff. THEY choose not to do so.
Another example is Al Gore. Jack has posted about this before. Al Gores footprint is the size of Texas and believe Jack … TEXAS is big. Al Gore could live small but he chooses NOT too.
The whole point is our legislators DEMANDING things of the citizens that they aren’t willing to do themselves. That’s a tuff sell to the public. It’s a no brainer to Jack. If you want him to do something for the better good of our nation YOU better be willing to do that same something also before he’ll even consider it.
When American families are cutting back on travel due to rising gas and food prices, President Obama should be considerate of the sacrifices millions of citizens are forced to make and adjust his travel plans accordingly. Statistics published by The Blaze note the Obama vacation to Hawaii last year cost approximately $4 million. Before the family trip to Hawaii, the Obama’s had already spent $10 million dollars of taxpayer money traveling to Vail, Colo.; Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.; and Spain.
Again Jack has no problem with people taking lavish vacations. But again … another example of Do as I Say … Not as I Do.
This is what Obama made (he’s made ALOT more since then).
In 2005, when Obama began serving in the U.S. Senate (and his daughters turned 4 and 7), he and his wife were earning a combined annual income of $479,062. Barack Obama was paid a salary of $162,100 by the U.S. taxpayers, and Michelle Obama was paid $316,962 to handle community affairs for the University of Chicago Medical Center.
Now Jack can say without a doubt 99% of wage earners would love that salary and live VERY well. They could live very comfortable, raise 2 or more kids … but Obama said “We didn’t have “the luxury” for Michelle to not work.”
Well Jack can see that Obama has a personal money management problem … so it makes perfect sense he has a problem managing the federal government … running up $$$,$$$,$$$,$$$ debt.
Jack says the US taxpaers don’t have the “luxury” of having Obama manage the US’s citizens money for another 4 years.
Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) is an electronic system that allows a recipient to authorize transfer of their government benefits from a Federal account to a retailer account to pay for products received. EBT is used in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam. EBT has been implemented in all States since June of 2004.
Jack promises he won’t buy beer, cigs, lotto tickets, bet on the ponies or even pay for lap dances with that money.
Jack does not promise to not use the money for bail money if he gets arrested. Jack told Eric Holder he is one of “his people” and got the nod for the bail money.
ps: ok ok … jack would use the card at a strip club if they had ATM and the gal was extremely robust.
IRS has an office in the building where Jack works. They are open for six hours, three days a week and this is during peek tax time. Also you have to have an appointment to see them. Here’s a suggestion … work more hours and allow walk-ins!
Here’s another … change the tax codes that EVERYONE pays a flat tax. ?% of your salary for EVERYONE. Yes even the 49.5% of Americans that pay no tax at all!
Jack recieved the audio book Bio of Steve Jobs as a christmas present this year. The Bob Dylan classic was one if not Steve Jobs favorite. Nothing could still be truer than … These Times are Changing. From America to Europe to Africa to Middle East to North Korea even to a little rock in middle of Mediterranean.
What Jack came away from Jobs bio was what a prick he was ! Jack can accept that in his business dealings. Thing is he was a prick in his personal life also. Steve Jobs was not a nice guy. Steve jobs was not a good father. Steve Jobs was not a good husband. WHY? Because Steve Jobs had only one thing that was really important to him … the PRODUCTS!
Now the ME/muslim world is going through dramatic change in some ways today. Every muslim that has removed the prick they had as ruler is changing. Thing is they are changing BACK to the 7th century NOT going forward into the future. They are going back to the basics of good ol Islam. Implementing ol time sharia (cutting of thiefs hands, stoning, killing off of other religions) … that is their change. The world was all giddy with the overthrough of the tyrants. Jack thought to himself … when muslims get the chance to elect what they want … it will be Islam and it won’t be pretty. That is coming true before the world today and it’s getting uglier by the day. 2012 is going to be a wild ride from the elections here in the US to elections all over the world.
Jack is almost to where he wants to be … RETIRED … If not late 2012 sometime in 2013. At that time Jack says … Let it Rain.
Until then … the one thing that has never changed.
For the Apple faithful God died October 5, 2011 and these times are changing.
