Excellence is punished.
Mediocrity is rewarded.
And dependency is to be revered.
This is present day America.
When people rob banks they go to prison.
when banks rob people they get bailed out!!!!!
When the government robs the taxpayer they get re-elected.
IN GOD WE TRUST

Slowly, corporate America is learning that, if you send America's jobs overseas, you decrease demand in the US. There was a time when it seemed that they thought they could send the jobs overseas, have cheaper products made, and then sell them to the American people for greater profit. Someone forgot to consider the fact that people without sustainable employment can't buy their products, even if they are a little less expensive. Everyone in corporate America wants to get rich quickly, but no one wants to invest in our country to ensure a strong economy.

US News had an article that Hospitals were dumping employees.  They claim due to Obamacare but that could be an excuse to get rid of older higher paid people.  I'm a RN that has been out of work for 2 1/2 years despite all the ads for new nurses.  When the government sponsored Medical Assistant schools, they put nurses out of work.  They taught these people our skills but pay them 1/2 the wage.  Your medical bill has not gone down from these savings!  I told my fellow nurses who supported Obamacare that it would not be good for us...they didn't listen.

 "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

The Fire Chief Said...
For those who understand, no explanation is needed.

For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.
Not fair to make judgment of this, until you see what the Fire Chief says!!!!

In South Los Angeles , a 4-plex home was destroyed by a fire.

A Mexican family of six, all welfare recipients and gang members,
Lived on the first floor, they died.

An Islamic group of seven welfare cheats,
All illegally in the countryfrom Kenya , lived on the second floor,
And they, too, all perished in thefire.

6 LA, Hispanic, ****ers, & ex-cons,
Lived on the 3rd floor and they, too, died.

A lone, white couple lived on the top floor.
The couple survived the fire.

Jesse Jackson, John Burris and Al Sharpton were furious!!
They flew into LA and met with the fire chief, on camera.
They loudly demanded to know,
Why the Blacks, Black Muslims and Hispanics,
All died in the fire and why only the White couple lived?

The Fire Chief said,
"They were at work"

GUESS HOW MANY MENTIONED HERE PAY TAXES??

WHAT WAS MISSING IN JAPAN?

                      Scientists Baffled
            
            What was missing in Japan ?
            There was an article in the US World Report regarding
            the orderly behavior of the Japanese citizens and the
            absence of looting after the earthquake, tsunami and
            nuclear nightmare.

            Social scientists were baffled by the total non-existence of
            looting and savage behavior in Japan considering
            the magnitude of this Catastrophe.
            
            They conferred with human study Organizations as well
            as sociology Experts throughout the United States .
            
            Finally, after days and days of studies and meetings,
            they came to a conclusion.

            Guess what was missing in Japan??
            
            
            
            The Entitlement Crowd!
            PASS IT ON,

REVERAND CRONKHITE SAID:

Michigan is on it's way. The elderly are being squeezed, NO JOBS, the Governor is raising gas taxes. Law enforcement is becoming para military, it's no longer protect and serve, it's violate your rights and take your money, the Judicial system is more about revenue than justice. Every neighborhood you drive thru, if the house isn't abanded with foreclosure stickers in windows, there run down and show signs that  foreclosure is around the corner. The roads are full of pot holes, the bridges crumble and drip rust on rainy days, tourism ? What's that ?  Over 30% of the states welfare population is because no drivers license, lose your license in Michigan and it's gone.......... So what do people turn too. Meth labs and medical marijuana, so sad for our children, but it's prophecy, the end of times, Gods plan. Repent and bb baptized in the name of Jesus and ye shall be saved. ACTS 2:38

OLD GEEZER SAID:

WELCOME TO OBAMAS NEW AMERICA!!!!!

AND IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME - JUST ASK THAT POLITICIAN BROAD THAT TOLD OBAMA TO COUGH UP THE BACON!!!!!

There does seem to  be a trend in healthcare to get people to preform jobs the require more skills and yet pay less than the typical RN or LPN would make.  More and more money is going to the Corp.Office and less and less toward employees. Greedy is king. The 51% who put Odufus back in probably won't feel the effects of the cutbacks due to probably being illerate and uneducated enough for a technical job. They may experience the pain when all the workers lose their jobs and cannot pay for their EBT, and SNAP cards, oh and i almost forgot the Obamaphone bill.

I always enjoy our presidents call for more jobs creation in America.  Then when his armor proofed vehicles. buses that is, were ordered from a Canadian company.  Then his Obamacare programming contract was awarded to a company in Canada, with French origins.  The contracted amount of 200,000,000.00 has already DOUBLED on this joke of a company that Canada's government fired for the mess they made there.  This fLAW, and the resulting continued down time with no end in sight is applauded by Obama, Reid and of course, Pelosi.  At the current rate of completion the cost overrun on the programming will be well over 1,000,000,000.00 and probably more, all while Obama, Reid and Pelosi pat themselves on their respective backs!
