Obama asked people to bring supplies, food and volunteer for the relief effort. Romney asked people to send MONEY to Red Cross.
Obama asks people to be personally involved with whatever they have to contribute. Mitt wants you to impersonally send MONEY. It would NEVER occur to Mitt that some people have nothing to give but themselves and their willingness to contribute..

<quoted text>Actually, my efforts were rewarded with a pay raise EVERY review period and dept. promotions. No trick, I knew I could preform basic job requirements and still collect a paycheck. Is that your employer has done for you? Tricked you into doing more than your job required and doesn't compensate you. I guess you are comfortable with a pat on the back and a cup of coffee.
Well actually, sometimes a pat on the back could save the employer from having to pay more than he can afford. This is why any management expert will tell you it is smart business to do so.
But just getting employees to do 'adequate' work is not easy. Just getting them to do their job is not easy. So the pat on the back and some coffee just may do the trick.

A good employer should reward anyone doing above their required job with better pay also. You see, the normal rule of thumb is, give them a pat on the back for adequate work, give them a raise for work above what their job entails.
I thought this was management 101. I see many here are not managers or at least good ones.

<quoted text>So your job is all about being a good Samaritan now?
You are making a straw man argument.
I am not asking for a pat on the back, I am suggesting what one does as a manager or owner, not as an employee.
I do not like getting into my personal life. I did say a bit about it lately, and you see how that has turned out. It is always used against me, not matter if my actions were noble or not. So I try to make it a policy to keep it general. I give, and I will give to help those in this disaster.
The debate here is what government should do. I am not here to compete on who personally gives the most.
My view is, one should give personal donations and help, but that is not enough. We need government power to do what we cannot. This disaster is a good example of what government can do, that donations cannot.
I do applaud churches for being pretty good at helping in such situations. Atheist also give. For example, Bill Gates gave half of his billions to charity. But even with that massive amount of money, it still cannot do all that is needed to be done. A central government of the country has power no single person or organization can come close to having.
This post is about the Samaritans Purse relief efforts. Spin Democrat spin.Had nothing to do with employment. Democrat.

I think everyone in California should pack up and "personally" get involved. Get mobile, come to the east, bring oranges, hand them out, silly isn't it. OR they can send a donations.

The post you responded to was about your post on the government worker doing his job, not the volunteers. Am I mistaken?

And for the sake of argument, lets say we are talking about a good Samaritan. Why would you not pat a good Samaritan on the back?
It may not be expected, but it sure could not hurt,and it will likely encourage more good Samaritan works.

Many people do good works, thinking on the surface, they do not do it for a reward, but the instinctive mind usually still wants some pat on the back recognition. It is human nature. Pure altruism is more rare than not. Understanding this fact, the pats on the back serve for a society that helps each other more. Is that not what is really important anyway? Whatever works.

<quoted text>
TSF, have you ever thought both men have different but correct perspectives. For those close by that can give of their time and any equipment that can be used to help is great. The Red Cross also needs supplies and money. Think about people that left in a hurry and probably panic and didn't bring their meds, especially the elderly. The average citizen can't donate insulin, needles (well probably some can help with the needles, but they might be used), blood pressure meds etc. The Red Cross needs money to purchase medications that can't be sent by private citizens. Both men are right in their requests. No time to make a disaster a spitting contest. Whatever anyone can do monetarily or by giving of their time, talent and donating supplies I feel certain would be appreciated. I've watched the tv today and the loss for these people is great and thus far, both candidates have gone out of their way to make it not about them, but the people impacted by this disaster.

It is not a progressive tax rate if the rich are paying a lesser tax rate than lower earners. Now spin that fact.
Here Miley, that rate is part of a lot of American's goals to improve their wealth. Not their fault that once they attain that goal of being independently wealthy, they want to maintain that status quo. And who are you to tell them they have too much money?

Don't like their business or the way they do business, then don't spend your money with them.

I guess it is easy for you to sit in your lazy boy and tell people they should get no help from the federal government while their state is in chaos. Typical republican asshole.
Yeah, I didn't see you anywhere near Louisiana or Mississippi after Katrina. What I did see was my task force along with several other deployed rendering assistance to the state and local governments that requested help.

So, I guess it is easy for you to sit back and second guess. Kinda like how we disagree with Obama and his handling of Lybia.

Waco, if I were you I'd call whatever branch of military you were in and tell them you want your medal. I mean you did at least use clean commode water, that ought to count for a little medal of some kind.

Did I say they had to much money? Nope, straw man argument.
I understand their wishes. No one wishes to pay taxes. I guess Mitt wants to have the poor fight the wars and pay for them.
