Another Failing Institution Handing Out Bonuses

clipped from online.wsj.com
WASHINGTON — While Congress has been flaying companies for giving out bonuses while on the government dole, lawmakers have a longstanding tradition of rewarding their own employees with extra cash — also courtesy of taxpayers.
Capitol Hill bonuses in 2008 were among the highest in years, according to LegiStorm, an organization that tracks payroll data. The average House aide earned 17% more in the fourth quarter of the year, when the bonuses were paid, than in previous quarters, according to the data. That was the highest jump in the eight years LegiStorm has compiled payroll information.
Payments ranged from a few hundred dollars to $14,000. Lawmakers, at their own discretion, gave the money to chiefs of staff, assistants, computer technicians, and more than 100 aides who earned salaries of more than $100,000 a year.

Fail Obama – A Hope For America

So now we have the Immaculate and Utterly Perfect Messiah come to reign.  I’m sure that the banal pietes he produces as his gasbaggy inaugural address will be repeated endlessly and will soon be posted in every hippy-dippy classroom in America.

However, what we can hope for is that he fails in what he wants for America.  Because what he wants is going to destroy this country just as surely as the British Empire was destroyed from within.  By the haters and the class-envists and the believers in government.  By those who simply decided that living on the fruits of the labor of others was possible if you just got enough bums together to vote themselves bread and circuses.

That’s the Obama majority.  Gimme whatever you got, its my right!

Well, here’s hoping you fail utterly and completely in everything you do Mr. President.
