Be careful. Republikan governor Pat McCrory used the power of the governors office Sunday to get 45 year old Drew Swope , a short, order cook at Reid's Fine Foods fired .

"CHARLOTTE, N.C.— An employee at a Charlotte food store claims he was fired after Gov. Pat McCrory’s security detail complained about a comment he made to the governor on Sunday, according to the Charlotte Observer.

McCrory was shopping at Reid’s Fine Foods when Drew Swope, 45, asked McCrory if he could help, according to the paper.

After he realized he was speaking to the governor, Swope apparently told McCrory,“Thanks for nothing,” and walked away, according to the paper.

Swope told the paper the governor was “upset” at his comment and began “yelling” at him. He claims McCrory told him he was a customer and shouldn’t be treated that way.

Swope said the governor and his security team complained to the food store owner, who then fired Swope.

Swope told the paper he does not blame Reid’s for letting him go, admitting,“I did speak out of turn.”

McCrory’s communications director Joshua Ellis told the paper that Swope also made an obscene gesture to the governor during the conversation.

Swope denied the accusation." I would have fired his a$$ as well. My time clock, my rules.

I wasn't there. Witnesses said Swope DID NOT flip off the governor. They also said Gov. Pat was yelling at Swope. Charlotte observer reports that the effigy thing was posted by OTHERS on facebook and that Swope had commented that the EFFIGY should be kicked in the crotch. No where has there been evidence that Swope threatened the governor. Get real. If the governor is willing to use the power of his office to get a man fired, you can bet your bippy that he would have had the man charged had he actually been threatened. More republican untruthful spin trying to sanitize a bully.

Obama wouldn't have been a bully and had the little guy fired. Drone strike, maybe, firing no. Joke

It's the Democrat way. The police will protect you. in a recent social experiment in which a child told several adults that he had been kidnapped by a stranger, all the adults let that strange man drag the kid away. one or two of them called 911. one woman pepper sprayed the strange man! good for her! everyone else adopted the old" let the police handle it" mentality like the ttrained sheep they are. TSF/State, I ask you.Would y'all have simply called 911 while the kid was being dragged away to a possible horrible fate? isn't that the Democrat way though? after all are the police not paid to handle these situations?

+THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT'S CALCULATION OF AVAILABLE SOCIAL SECURITY IS THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK!!!

WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO?
Remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but your employer did, too.
It totaled 15% of your income before taxes.
If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that's close to $220,500.
Read that again.
Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny?
We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to insure you
and I that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government.
Now they are calling the money we put in "AN ENTITLEMENT" when we reach the age to take it back.
If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution)
at a simple 5% interest (less than what the Government pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you'd have $892,919.98.
If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you're 95 if you retire at age 65) and that's with no interest paid on that
If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.

THE FOLKS IN WASHINGTON HAVE PULLED OFF A BIGGER PONZI SCHEME THAN BERNIE MADOFF EVER DID.

Entitlement my foot, I paid cash for my social security insurance!
Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!

Remember Congressional benefits?--- free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages,67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days.
Now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements?

We're "broke" and we can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, or Homeless.
Yet in the last few months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile and Turkey .
And now Pakistan ......home of bin Laden.
Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!
And they can't help our own citizens in New York and New Jersey !
