Epitome of a Liar..........


"Campaigning for President Barack Obama in Philadelphia on Monday afternoon, former President Bill Clinton inadvertently struck a note of irony while attempting to criticize Mitt Romney’s campaign.

“You’re laughing, but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?”"


He forgets abouts Monica........among many other forgetfuls..........

Hope he closes down that socialist V.A. Clinic those liberal Democraps put in Blairsville. Everyone knows that Guvment can't provide healthcare, and why are we allowing the Guvment to compete with those poor doctors who can barely support their families.

Makes a man so damn mad he wants to burn his Socialist Security check.

Well, maybe not.

I know, we'll just have another bourbon then complain about all that federal money invading Georgia.

Unfortunately, excessive zeal by gov't law enforcement agents is not unique to the present administration. Ruby Ridge and Waco are a couple of glaring examples, but there are many more going back through the last century.

The BLairsvile Devil doesn't think it is or was a great or good post.I will agree that the feds sometimes do things that aren't accepted by many,but this is only a re-enactmentand that reduces the credibility to nearly zero,that's my opinion.

You are right but, this was unprevoked for no reason other than harrasment as has been done to several other businesses recently because of disagreeing openly with the government mostly in a vocal way.
Ruby Ridge was done supposedly because of [a threat] from Randy and Waco was done because of a stash of illegal weaponry as well as sexual abuse by David.
I thought that the U.S. Savior was supposedly trying to help the small businesses and boost the economy, not destroy them.

In the video I didn't see that anyone had voiced disagreement with the government. It did mention that the raid was IRS related but not how. Loss or gain of money is often a reason people react violently. Never the less, all of the above cases could have been handled in a manner that respected the rule of law and due process.

Unfortunately the extra info concerning these matters is no longer available to me any longer.
Yes the raid was supposedly concerning the IRS but each of the businesses were not at fault with the IRS according to the Attorney involved. And yes it all should have been handled quite differently, but under the current circumstances with the Federal Governing System, all small businesses need to be extremely concerned.

Hostess took workers' pension money to fund itself
by Laura Clawson
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/12/10/1168...

Of all the outrages Hostess has committed against its workers, this may take the cake. In August, 2011, the company just stopped contributing to its workers' pensions, and is now acknowledging that it instead used the money for operational expenses. The money that didn't go into pension funds was money that the workers had bargained for and chosen to take as pension instead of wages. But that doesn't mean there's anything they can do about it:
The maneuver probably doesn't violate federal law because the money Hostess failed to put into the pension didn't come directly from employees, experts said.

"It's what lawyers call betrayal without remedy," said James P. Baker, a partner at Baker & McKenzie LLP who specializes in employee benefits and isn't involved in the Hostess case. "It's sad, but that stuff does happen, unfortunately."

It's a little more than sad. It's infuriating, at a minimum. And the fact that "that stuff does happen" as often as it does is a sign of a diseased economy.
This was how these workers were saving for their retirement over decades at Hostess. They were being responsible, planning and saving like we're told we should all do, making that decision at a local level as they bargained their contracts:

For example, John Jordan, a union official and former Hostess employee, said workers at a Hostess factory in Biddeford, Maine, agreed to plow 28 cents of their 30-cents-an-hour wage increase in November 2010 into the pension plan.

Hostess was supposed to take the additional 28 cents an hour and contribute it to the workers' pension plan.

"This local was very aggressive about saving for the future," he said.

And in the end, Hostess was very aggressive about stealing those savings, hour by hour, from the workers. While there may not be a remedy because the 28 cents an hour didn't first go to the workers and then into the pension fund, morally, it's no less stealing, adding up to tens of millions of dollars. The current CEO of Hostess says it's "terrible," but don't blame him, he didn't know it was happening.

You do not want to be the next person to say in my hearing that Hostess went bankrupt because of those greedy union workers.

Now that was a crying shame, for real.

Thank God we have weak unions,
and corporations that own the politicians,
and soon will own the courts,
otherwise someone might have stopped the company from stealing all the employees' money to pay themselves bonuses.

We recently fired and employee for what we believed was a legitimate reason.
She instituted litigation claiming her termination was unlawful.
After she lost the litigation and she was ordered to pay our attorneys' fees and costs,
I watched her drive away in a "beater" car displaying a "Rubio for Senate" bumper sticker.

She and her Fox Noise travelers will never understand that they support the very people who took away her right to even argue she had a right to that job.

God Loves irony.
