What a toon!<quoted text>
You still didn't say a thing!!!!! You just babbled for 12 lines
saying absolutely nothing! You wouldn't know a "basic fact" if
it exploded in your shorts; you haven't provided one in the hundreds
of posts you have submitted. You make it up as you go; if I had
said something stupid like "statistical", you would have gone with
the political science version. Just like when I asked you to
clarify your tax question, you wouldn't; or couldn't is probably
more like it.
And the hell I am wrong! That is exactly what those terms
mean in the political science context; there is nothing
"statistical" about them. They are subjective terms, period!!
And all of your progressive web sites you can google doesn't
change that. You don't have a "right" bone in your body!
You are a Kool Aid drinker, Rat, nothing more and nothing
less. You get every thought from your web sites, by your
own admission. Most of the people come and go from these
sites; you seem to be on them 24/7. The only reason I can
answer you in the middle of the night is I work overnights
and can blog all I want when it is quiet. You are borderline
paranoid and a pathalogical liar. That's not a compliment,
and not a criticizm; just an observation, and a professional
one at that. So I will leave you to your Kool Aid and your
web sites. See ya, Rat.

The Pioneer Press released a comprehensive, easy to use database
listing the salary and other employment data regarding thousands of Minnesota public servants. This searchable database is exactly the kind of tool watchdogs and other interested citizens need to educate not only ourselves but our neighbors with respect just how large and uncontrollable government has become. It's about time the major newspapers did something valuable to contribute to the public discourse regarding the size and scope of government.
One of the shortcomings of the database is that it doesn't cover city
government, but this is still a helpful tool.
(The most recent data is from 2008.)
A sampling of two of the big spenders:
Anoka County has 54 employees who make more than $100,000 in salary, to go along with gold-plated benefits.
Steve Novak, chief lobbyist makes nearly $134,000.
The Anoka County Sherrif's Office alone has 10 employees making more than $100,000.
is it really necessary to pay a cop $100,000?
Is it necessary to pay the guy who runs the recycling operation $101,000?
The County's "application services manager" makes $100,000.
The "director of income maintenance" makes $110,000.
Does the parks and recreation director need $116,000?
The district has 56 employees who make more than $100,000 per year.
The superintendent leads the way at $155,000.
Many of the bureaucrats in the $100,000 grand club are assistant principles. Save some money and eliminate their jobs. Sound far fetched? Just last week, the Wall Street Journal ran an article noting that many of America's most successful companies are eliminating "assistant" executive positions, finding that they offer little value.
With big salaries, Cadillac health plans and defined-benefit retirements, no wonder we're in trouble. It's easy to see that government is fast approaching a day of fiscal reckoning, just like the airlines, the auto makers, and other old-line industries
experienced. Government's labor cost structure is unsustainable, even with big, job-killing tax hikes. Just take a look at California if you want an example of governmental collapse. Even with big tax hikes, major cuts and accounting gimmicks, that state is facing a budget deficit that may equal fully 1/3rd of the total budget.
Recession or not, we have government institutions who are spending money faster than taxpayer ability to pay. At some point Atlas WILL shrug.
