Ann Coulter: SACRIFICIAL SCAMS (Michelle Obama Faux Job Etc)
AnnCoulter.Com ^ | May 16, 2012 | Ann Coulter

SACRIFICIAL SCAMS

May 16, 2012
The real class warfare in this country isn't rich vs. poor, it's government employees vs. we, the taxpayers, who pay their salaries.

Working for the government is supposed to be a trade-off: You can't be fired and don't have to exert yourself, but you will receive smaller remuneration than in the private sector, where layoffs are common (especially in the Obama economy!). Instead, government jobs are safe, secure, pressure-free -- and now, amazingly lucrative!

Whether it's in Wisconsin, Illinois, California or the nation's capital, today's public sector workers expect to do little or no work (I'm not counting partying in Las Vegas as "work"), and then be lavishly compensated. Often, the only heavy lifting they do all week is picking up their paychecks.

When government employees mobbed the state capitol in Wisconsin last year, the upside was: They got to bully people. The downside: Voters finally found out what these public servants were being paid.

Their compensation included not only straight salary, but also lavish overtime benefits, pensions, health care plans, sick days and vacation time (most of which they spent protesting).

The unions thought they could fight back against Gov. Scott Walker's tiny rollbacks without anyone finding out the details. Most people saw what public employees were getting and assumed it was a misprint.

Two years ago, seven bus drivers in Madison, Wis., made more than $100,000 a year.

A few years before that, we found out that the city manager of little Bell, Calif. -- per capita annual income $24,800 -- was making $787,637, or including benefits: $1.5 million a year. The chief of police was getting $457,000 a year -- $770,046 counting benefits -- making him the first chief of police to commit highway robbery on the job. The assistant city manager was taking home $376,288 per year, for a total compensation package of $845,960.

By Obama's second year in the U.S. Senate, in 2006, Michelle Obama's compensation from "public service" was approximately $375,000 a year -- more than triple the average salary for a lawyer in the United States with 20 years' experience.

Little does she know.

I'd like to get paid for writing books ~ I've certainly contributed enough chapters and clever soundbytes to lazybones like Ann to get a bit of the action.

Coulter expresses unfounded jealousy for the easy lifestyle of government employees.

I'd like to see her out there baiting mosquitos in the swamps that surround our major cities.

And please stop posting her dribble here, it isn’t even funny anymore when you know how big a two-faced phony.

Since the post was prominently touted as being by Ann, you had no reason to click on it as you despise her. You have even less reason to tell others how to behave. Since the owner of the site hasn't banned Coulter you're little diatribe is full of fury signifying nothing.

So much for some conservatives believing in free speech. You differ little from the liberals we despise.

Yea, childish curse work laden posts will be deleted from threads at Free Republic.

Along with personal attacks such as yours.

You and a few others don't like anything she writes anymore, in fact you never did ever since she wouldn't drop everything and bow down to your birther crank-i-ness.

No, i was not overcompensated. The worst customer is the guy who doesn't pay for the product ~ there are millions of them in this country. They all think they can use the Postal Service as a cheap psychiatric service.

You guys are all sickos.

That's the point. YOU get to decide whether or not the content is drivel or not, not someone else. The hallmark of most liberals is they don't think or form their own opinions, they parrot the thoughts of those that think for them. They aren't smart enough to form their own opinions.

You pay postage voluntarily ~ when you mail things. When you receive delivery you pay nothing.

Over a number of years I tired of your constant, chronic whining when you persisted in complaining about a service you didn't pay for ~ not even with your taxes.

I am so sure you cheat on your postage it's palpable in your every comment.

Cheat? You bet I do! I FedEx ALL my important mail because you are a bunch of worthless Government Union grifters that lose stuff. If it positively, has to be there PERIOD I steer well clear of you. I haven't bought a stamp in years, yet you punks FILL my mailbox with crap on a daily basis. I have no use for you.

That's what i thought ~ you don't pay postage ~ which pays for the operation of the Post Office but you still find time to kvetch and moan about the service you get for free.

Like I said you people are all sickos and not very respectful of the US Constitution.

I"ve made the Chicoms and the old Soviet Union pay postage ~ and they didn't complain ~ they knew!

You know, usually, I see you post something completely bizarre, but I laugh and shrug you off as a utterly weird (but harmless) kook.

But every now and again you post something that makes me realize they should NEVER let you out in public.

Like the above.

Cyber Liberty is CHEATING on his postage and he's a SICKO and disrespectful of the Constitution if he does not buy stamps??!??!?

This is Mandatory Health Insurance Obama Thought. This goes against every single concept of what it is to ba a free American.

The Constitution states in Article I, Section 8, Clause 7 that Congress is empowered to "establish Post Offices and post Roads".

Nowhere does it say purchasing stamps is mandatory. Nowhere is it implied if you don't buy stamps, that you are 'cheating', so long as you do not mail something.

Dude, you are Cliff Clavin in the flesh, only more dangerous.

Oh, and Cyber Liberty pays plenty to your fat, bloated, patronage-filled useless institution. He pays Federal taxes.

There may be some like this (and ARE for we've seen the data) but I can assure you that the grunts in the force back in MY day, weren't!

We were the ones who...

Whipped

Inflation

Now!

getting hardly any raise at all when everyone else in the country was getting double digit yearly increases.

We never DID recover from that.

We put lots more money of our own into our retirement system, too. I worked for the Navy Department, and they tend to have a MUCH lower pay scale that anything else in gov't I've seen.

Well just doggone lazz, if you have a dispute with the Founders on the language they put in the Constitution you should take it up with them ~ get yourself an amendment.

BTW, postage stamps ~ the modern kind on paper with adhesive, etc. ~ were invented in 1840. Their intent was to shift the cost burden from the recipients to the senders. The idea swept the world.

Regarding yanking chains, every time I find somebody who still believes the USPS draws down on taxes I see a chain so I yank it.

Every now and then I find somebody who clean plum forgets that senders pay postage ~

Regarding sending mail via FedEx, you can do that if you want but the company has to pay a substantial surcharge for the privilege of carrying it ~ and that is required by the Private Express Statutes, not by USPS. They were originally passed in 1792!

There go those Founders again, doing something quixotic and not at all understandable by anyone, least of all Freepers, some of whom are ON TOP OF THIS STUFF like pangolins on a termite mound, and some of whom are just lying around the Postal Pond like fat polar bears waiting for a seal to fall out of the sky.

Now about paying taxes to USPS ~ show me Lazz, show me where you or anybody pays taxes to USPS.

While I am wrong about taxes, that stopped in 1970, YOU ARE A COMPLETE A&& FOR THINKING PEOPLE 'CHEAT' BY NOT BUYING A CERTAIN MINIMUM OF STAMPS.

You should not be allowed in public. Maybe if you were fitted with a shock collar, okay. Every time you expressed a desire for people to be forced into a purchase transaction, we could drill yer a&& with 120 volts.

You are misinterpeting (purposefully let's hope ~ for your sake) what I really said.

I"m merely looking for evasion in the responses of the other party, and once I find that evasion I simply carrry it one step forward ~ in this case to the possible non-payment of postage which is due!

I'm not getting a denial ~ I'm getting evasive answers and an attempt to create a diversion. I didn't even target you Lazz and here you are throwing up all sorts of diversions ~ so what is it that you've done you need to confess to? We are all friends here ~ no one will report you.

Not even an acceptable string of deflective nonsense.

Allow me to quote you:

Theres not much room for 'misinterpretation', ham hock.

You state he cheats on his postate, and then when he responds he doesn't use USPS, you chastize him for failing to support the USPS, calling him a 'sicko' and 'and not very respectful of the US Constitution'.

This is STRAIGHT out of Obama's playbook. "You must support the government even with your purchase decisions".

There is NO WIGGLE ROOM, sparky. You are cold busted as a liberal freakshow.

Sorry about your luck.

I don't think it's a sniff test. I just think he's a very VERY weird semisocialist former postal drone. Working in that agency can break a person.

I guess I'm not too worried about trying to help this muawiyah try to get a more realistic view. Frankly, I doubt it's possible. I was simply expressing outrage he took on Cyber Liberty in a way indistinguishable from the way Obama or Pelosi might have.

Yes, I have gentled-down over time, but I still have razor-sharp claws and venomous teeth, if called for.

This started when another poster misinterpreted "interrogation" as always meaning some sort of torture.

Which, though possible is certainly not allowed much anymore ~ except in cases of national emergency and so forth.

Now we have folks stretching that into adherence to the doctrines of Nancy Pelosi (maid of the frozen face) and possibly even ObamaKKKare.

Let's go back to first causes ~ none of you would last a day baiting mosquitoes in a fetid federal swamp. So much for the "overpaid federal employee" comment.
