Employee Of The Month – In Obama’s America

Neighbour Spying On Neighbour

Unforeseen by most of us a decade ago, but predicted by many of us six years ago, the invasion of government into our lives is almost complete.  The use of the IRS to not only invade your financial affairs, but to also trespass on the process of your very personal health care, appears to have become an acceptable undertaking by 40% of the population, given the continuing level of support for this Administration.  This tyrannical and despotic stance is only one symptom of the disease eating at the fabric of the Republic.

From the top down, the current Administration’s ideological mindsets is being dispersed to affect all corners of our society, including the minds of our children and grandchildren, through enforcement of such nonsense as Common Core to manufacture millions of ideologically correct drones.  Some large corporations, particularly banks, are on-board with ‘big brother’, although in the case of banks, it isn’t so much out of fear or coercion from the Administration, as it is from their seeing value in a market inhabited by a society of uneducated and uninformed zombies.

So what’s transpired to the long positively held notion of “Employee Of The Month”?  It is no longer the employee which served customers with respect, or managed others effectively, inspiring them to become better than they were.   Employee Of The Month has transformed into recognition of employees who can “Inform” on other employees who are not of the socialist mindset, or not towing the bureaucratic self-righteous statist line, or in the case of your bank, reporting on you the customer.

For example, it’s almost as if you should not have access to your own cash.  In fact, in this long depression we have suffered, you should have no cash at all.  Where are you going with that whole $2,000 or $4,000?  Perhaps you’re financing terrorists with it, so we have the right to invade your privacy.  “No”, you say, “I’m just going to negotiate a better deal for a used car if I have hard cash with me.  Checks don’t work.” No matter, only a few of the elite are supposed to have access to cash and only if they support this statist Administration, and you certainly don’t look like the elite, plus your picture hasn’t appeared on the cover of, or on the pages of, People magazine, so you look suspicious.

Obama-Medvedv

We now live in an age when the likes of a deplorable character such as Lois Lerner is the Employee Of The Month and the MSM led by the NYT defends the practice, while humour such as the following from a not-so-distant past, isn’t so humorous when it reigns on our streets.

Two former schoolmates met in the street.
“Where do you work?”
“I am a school teacher. And what about you?”
“I work for the KGB.”
“Oh, and what are you doing at the KGB?”
“We unearth those who are dissatisfied.”
“You mean, there are also some who are satisfied?”
“Those who are satisfied are dealt with by the Division for the Fight Against the Embezzlements of the Socialist Property.”

A constituent of the vast baby boomer generation with a career which has been fortunate to know the ponderous corporate worlds, as well as the intimately pressurized, and invigorating entrepreneurial domains of high tech and venture capital, I have harvested my share of mistakes meandering through corridors of enterprise from Silicon Valley, to London and endless, colourful, sometimes praetorian points in between. The voyage has provided an abundance of fodder for a pen yielding to an inquisitive keyboard, a foraging mind, and a passionate spirit. Whether political or business or social or economic or personal, is it not all political? It is a privilege to write, and an even greater privilege to be read by anyone, and sometimes with the wind at my back the writing may occasionally be legible. I do not write to invite scorn, nor to invite respect, but if I get really lucky the writing can stimulate thinking. I also write for the very selfish purpose of animating my own processes, and engaging the best of what life offers. Above all, whether biting fire or swatting shadows, I am grateful to be gifted the freedom to write and publish whatever flows down to the keyboard. To all those who enabled this freedom, and to all those standing guard to preserve it, I am indebted.

    Yes James, we were all so naive, to believe the country was strong enough to stand against those who would steal our freedom and those who would trade freedom for a few promises from the greatest liar in history.

    We have no borders; except for those erected to turn away Whites and educated people seeking freedom. The US in now the receptacle for all the unformed raw socialist minds of the Third World. Obama couldn’t make headway into the stalwart freedom loving Americans, so he is importing his own brand of mind-numbed socialists. Only 40% of Americans are unquestioning of Obama’s actions, but importing an unending flow of children who plan to bring in their extended families in the near future with promises of Obama phones, free-money, healthcare and housing, it’s amazing the whole of South America isn’t wading across the Rio Grande. However, from a practical point, the Obama planes and busses can only attend to a maximum number of “Dreamers” a week or do you think children under the can walk hundreds of miles and even thousands of miles across deserts, jungles, wild rivers, and mountains and yet, they look so good and clean, while complaining about the food?

    In fairness to Obama, he has sealed the much larger Canadian border so that the illegal migration from the North is down to zero. Thank goodness he has actually accomplished something. In the mean-time, our president is expected to have a great game of golf in Palm Springs while his favorite Islamic terrorists continue their orgy of beheading. Let’s hope it is not overly-hot for him, while the rest of us think about the vets who died or were maimed insuring that Iraq became a free country and lets hope by retiring the top brass early, the VA stops letting our vets die while waiting for the Obama Death panels to have a shakedown cruise.

    I can recall having a conversation with a really good friend of mine, maybe 20 years ago, discussing gun registration. He was extremely paranoid about it and I could see no harm in it.

    Now I get it.

    Skook, this brings to mind the hypocrisy of the politically corrected Hollywood loons leading the morality of the Nation into the crapper, while surrounded by walled estates, guarded by armed bodyguards, and travelling by bullet-proofed limos and private jets — ask them if the country’s borders should be guarded? “No chance, . . . but pass the champagne, and damn-well don’t let them come and shit on MY Lawn or I’ll shoot their asses.”

    I remember reading about Barbara Streisand flying to DC to have a personal conference with our Liar in Chief, about her recommendations for AGW. We are to assume her scientific opinion is highly regarded in the WH, at least our Liar made time in his schedule for her. After flying across country in her personal jet and using close to a year’s income for most of us in aviation fuel, I wonder if she thinks the rest of us should have access to smaller personal jets or is that little perk reserved for hypocritical elitists?

    I know you can lease a portion of a private jet for $30,000 a month, but the fuel and the pilots are expensive. Since most of us lack the necessary funds for private jet travel, perhaps she can make up the difference from her personal fortune. We can call it Wealth Re4distribution, for us slightly more affluent types who don’t live in the ghetto.

    OBAMA still doing like he always did, spend the people’s money,
    punish the people by bying the children from abroad, billions already spent,
    and the country is broke he know he can’t afford to have those children,
    this money he spend is making it hard on the citizens, in need of that billion,
    and he continue digging in the people’s pocket, to suck on the people’s money,
    and he know he will be inpeach, that is why he is so on the revenge mode,
    THE HIGHEST COURT HAS ACCEPTED TO IMPEACH , SO HE WILL LEAVE AMERICA BROKE ON THE DITCH ,
    THERE IS 9,000,000,000, 000, dollars missing in the feds pot, WHERE COULD THAT BE,
    it could have been spent also like the rest of the debt of 17 plus some
    add those missing 9,000,000,000,000,

    Someone should tell these airheads that they are simply puppets being manipulated by the progeny of the Frankfurt School. A Marxist by any other name is a Marxist. In the age of the internet, it is amazing that it persists more than ever, and is so prevalent on almost every campus on this continent.

    And these glad-handing self-absorbed dolts worship “Political Correctness” without knowing what it is, what it means, what its purpose is, and definitely without knowledge of what it represents in the disintegration of cultures and societies.

    collapse of the dollar, IS UPON US,
    is in it another danger for the citizens?

    MsBees, we each have opinions and about the only ones absolutely NOT worth listening to are those of the economists running The Fed. If you’ve listened to anything that the current turnip sitting in the Chair of The Fed — Janet Yellen, has said, she repeats inane diatribes without real insights and even if she ever said anything relevant to reality or truth, she’s not in charge. Yellen and Bernanke have never been right about anything. “Clueless” seems to be about the right descriptive.

    The bankers have taken care of themselves on the back of taxpayers. Bailouts were just the beginning and with almost 0% interest they pay on the money they can’t do anything, but make money when they lend it to you at 5% or 20% (VISA). So the heads of the banks are paying themselves billions in salaries and bonuses, while the “savers” in the population get screwed. The bankers have abused the system they control, and now have no idea what to do.

    The US stock market is a bubble created principally by The Fed continuing to pump money into the hands of banks — and that money isn’t finding its way to the street for businesses. There may actually NOT be a particular trigger that sets off the collapse, and we’ve never, ever been here, so a Butterfly Effect may set off the disaster and we might never know the starting point of its flight even after it occurs.

    The sooner the dollar goes through a serious correction the better, and the longer it takes, the worse it will be. One advantage for King Dollar is that there isn’t a good current alternative on the horizon and that has probably been key to the delay of serious correction. The world’s economy needs to go through the process of washing-out the bad laundry and slowly rebuild. The rebuild will take 20 to 30 years. Each day we are told that another country is about to trigger the Tsunami of all shitstorms on the world markets and the global economy.

    No one can predict the event that will precipitate the run, and no one can predict which country will set it off. We’ve been able to convince the world to support the Dollar, but given inept leadership, that support is waning, plus the current upward pressure on OIL prices has the potential to set off inflation — that includes inflation in your own household.

    Many watchers view China as being the giant that presents the biggest problem which might be the bursting of its undoubtable real estate bubble and enormous debt.

    In the meantime, we haven’t figured out what will put 50 million people back to real jobs, but what this Administration has figured out is how to increase the tax burden on those who earn, and is now moving to redistribute American taxpayer cash to African Dictators and the 3rd world through Climate Change Penalization, Carbon Taxes, and Cap and Trade.

    So, yes, the depression is already here, and more serious trouble is coming, but it could be this year or it could be next. I’m looking for a crystal ball.

    i knew i was talking to a knowledgeble person, by telling this,
    the talk was also of a global curency to replace the USA DOLLAR,

    AND THE DEBT HERE WAS A FACTOR ALSO, it might not being repaid fast enough for the CHINA,

    They can try to do some trading directly, but the world for now revolves around the dollar and until there is a major ‘break’ that will be the case.

    One force at play holding the status quo and making ‘timing’ predictions difficult to nail down, is that the Central Banks have positioned trillions of dollars in equities.

    The job of Central Banks isn’t to invest in equity markets — one of these days Congress will have the guts to fix that problem with these geniuses at The Fed, and will do things like prevent their ability to print money at will. This quantitative easing crap has to stop.

    trust in us feds is fading

    MsBees, this speaks to the biggest question in the world right now as economies struggle to remain afloat.

    The strength of the US Dollar is dependent on confidence in the United States. That confidence is an aggregate of elements such as its economy, its growth, its GDP, its exports, its political stability, its physical stability, and its guns. The fact that the US has the biggest guns has much to do with it being considered a “safe haven” for capital.

    Keep in mind, confidence is also a relative term. In the case of international currencies, the US remains far and above safer a haven than places like Russia or China — where the corruption isn’t just present at the top but is prevalent throughout their systems. They just can’t be trusted.

    While economic “confidence” isn’t usually too impacted by who occupies the White House, Obama is changing the curve on this, given his and Jarrett’s inept managerial capabilities over the Administration of the largest economy on earth. The kind of corruption we are seeing out of the bureaucracies such as the IRS, NSA and Justice, eventually erodes general confidence if it isn’t stopped. These people ARE corrupt.

    My biggest concern on the international level is that the world’s GDP is nosediving, while DEBT is exploding. The only positive solution is GROWTH of somewhere between 2.5% to 4+% — which right now appears to be an impossible dream for developed countries. Such growth would enable the beginning of a “workout” of national debts.

    IMHO, regardless what the bankers, media and economists pretend, this is almost impossible given the insane levels of that debt and its interest payments. And “trust” levels are dropping. The next 18 months may finally bring about a clean-up of the bubbles floating around all of us, including those ridiculous equity markets.

    HI,
    it seem to me that the GERMANS had never been refuse to look into the FEDS GOLD,
    and they where bafle by the refusal, which is a new LAW,
    THEREFOR SUSPECT THAT THE GOLD IS GONE OR REDUCE DRASTICLY,
    IT GIVE ME A QUESTION , DO THEY OWN SOME OF THAT GOLD, AND HAD ALWAYS ACCESS TO VISIT,
    AS PART HOLDER OF SOME, AND THE USA WOULD BE THE KEEPER OF THEIR GOLD, AND OTHER TOO,
    IS THAT POSSIBLE,
    WHY WOULD THEY BE CONCERN, IF THE GOLD IS NO MORE, AND WHY WOULD THEY BE REFUSE

    As much as I like gold and silver, like almost everybody else, I’m uncomfortable with the fact that we have no idea how much gold really exists. We have estimates, but since all the gold that has ever been extracted from the earth still sits in someone’s hands, counting is an impossible exercise.

    There isn’t any good reason for Germany not to get it’s gold, although that story seems strange. This is one of those ‘behind the curtain’ events that may be too difficult to wrap one’s hands around. In the realm of the machinations of The Fed — anything is possible, with bodies like the BIS around, beyond the eye of governments, bankers can do just about anything they want.

    One of the more critical concerns has been the trading in gold over the past year — too much of the shorting was NOT covered. There are some huge games being played by just a few bankers, and we’re just observers who hope to guess right.

    exported 4500 tons of gold which can’t be accounted for, nowhere to be found,
    and did you know that the government treasury is not checked by anyone,
    they don’t answer to no one, they are free to do what ever their fancy tell them,
    adding to it,
    some countries like GERMANY, VENEZUALA OTHER DEMAND THEIR GOLD BACK, the amount of GERMANY WAS,
    300 TONS PLUS 300 TONS TO FRANCE, THEY WANT TO PAY,
    FOR SOME REASON OF THEIR OWN,
    and BOTH where told that it will take 7 years to get it back,
    bye STILL READING,
    THE EXPERT SAID THIS IS PRICE MANIPULATION, ILLEGAL,
    FROM MALONEY AND MARTIN,
    AYN RAND HAS MALONEY ADMIRATION, BY HER BOOK,

    Obama/Jarrett/Holder have done nothing in 6 years to punish the biggest players who have manipulated the major markets, including gold. They have refused to punish “Front Trading” or high speed trading — how can they go after the guys who financed the Obama election campaigns.

    The joke is that all of the “believers” have been made to think that Republicans are against creating jobs, or that Republicans are “For” big business. These fools don’t seem to grasp that this administration has hurt entrepreneurs or would-be entrepreneurs, which is where real growth and jobs come from.
