So with all this outrage over the AIG bonuses the government is here to save the day. Now, led by Rep. Barney Frank, Congress is looking to pass a bill that would allow the Treasury Department to exercise control over all pay (not just executives) in companies receiving government monies. This goes beyond just the AIGs and GMs. Of course, I doubt if Planned Parenthood would be up for that. It received over $330M in federal money in 2007. It’s president had a total salary and compensation of over $900,000 in 2007. Is Rep. Frank looking at that? Does that salary qualify as “unreasonable”? I know there is outrage over federal monies paying that salary.
Did you watch it all the way through? Pretty timely given the circumstances today. How many of Obama’s appointees are based on merit? Having the government control industry is a bad thing – it derails growth and puts the already inefficient behemoth in charge of industries that need to be lighter and agile in the world market. I’ll tell you who is greedy – it’s the democrats in the government. Greedy for power and position. We’re all told to make sacrifices in these times, have you seen the government make a sacrifice yet?
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
