Sea Czar: Barack Hussein 0bama II

From Wikipedia:

Originally, the title Czar (derived from Caesar) meant Emperor in the European medieval sense of the term, that is, a ruler who claims the same rank as a Roman emperor, with the approval of another emperor or a supreme ecclesiastical official (the Pope or the Ecumenical Patriarch).

Occasionally, the word could be used to designate other, non-Christian, supreme rulers. In Russia and Bulgaria the imperial connotations of the term were blurred with time and, by the 19th century, it had come to be viewed as an equivalent of King.

The United States of America now has monarchs?

Interestingly, it was FDR who first appointed these unaccountable overseers.
But he didn’t call them “czars” (that was Nixon’s idea).
FDR called them “dictators”.

With the arrogance 0bama displays one might think dictators are a big part of his plans for changing America.

The cost of King Barack’s Court:

OK, for those among us who own small businesses, let’s analyze this just like we would if we were thinking of opening a new office:

Now, let’s see, if each of the Czars has a salary of $150,000, plus benefits of 35%, that’s $202,500 each. In round numbers that means $8,100,000 per year for 40 Czars (rounding up...one must anticipate expansion...)

Then let’s add another $100,000 each for travel, meals and entertainment.

Now, let’s assume they each have a nice office of about 1000 sq. ft. at Washington, D.C. prices of say, oh about $5.00 per square foot. That’s $5000 x 12 = $60,000 = $2,400,000 for all of them.

Let’s just give their hard-working staff the same amount of space, shall we? That’s another $2,400,000

Now, let’s add staff for each of, oh shall we say, five people? And let’s just do a simple “average” salary for each staff member of $70,000. So, that’s $350,000 per Czar. But wait! There’s more! Let’s not forget the benefits for the staff. That’s another $122,500 per Czar.

Then, there’s travel for the several “personal assistants” on the staff. So, let’s figure two staff members also travel whenever the Czar travels. Just to be conservative, let’s add another $100,000 for staff travel.

Lost yet?

Oh, and we can’t forget the standard costs of running an office. You know, the stuff like paper, ink cartridges, telephones, and so on. Just to be conservative, let’s figure about $2000 per month for that. That’s $24,000 per year per Czar.

OK. Now, let’s add it all up:

Czars = $8,100,000 in salary and benefits
Travel= $4,000,000
Private Office for Czars=$2,400,000
Staff = $18,900,000 for salaries and benefits
Office space for staff=$2,400,000
Office supplies=$960,000
Travel for (2) staff=$4,000,000

Here’s the total bill all you nice folks who pay taxes are footing for King Barack the Mild’s Czars:

$40,760,000 and in case you need help reading that, it’s 40 million 760 thousand dollars and it doesn’t include limo services, gym memberships and so on...

Now, fellow business owners, tear the above apart. Find the flaws, the missing pieces, and let’s start spreading the news about what the King’s Courtiers are costing us.

Now Van Jones submitted his resignation to the Chairman of the Council for Environmental Quality (who does require consent of the Senate to hold office)...

ALthough if he’s a czar, can the Chairman actually order him to do anything?
