    BLM Erects $98,670 Outhouse

    The Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently paid $98,670 for the purchase and installation of an outhouse at the Swede Park Trail Head in Alaska.

    The purchase includes a single-vault Romtec 1011 “Aspen Single” prefabricated waterless toilet and its installation at the parking area for the trail head.

    Only federal employees classified as “essential” can work during a government shutdown. At EPA, that means just 6.6 percent of its workforce, according to Reuters.

    Of the agency’s 16,205 employees, a mere 1,069 will work through the shutdown. That means that taxpayers employ 15,136 PEOPLE AT THE EPA WHO ARE “NON-ESSENTIAL.” akers warned that the law amounted to a blank check to the power company written by its ratepayers.

  • IRS and Obamacare Scandals?

    Since the passage of the “Affordable Care Act,” there has been some cause for concern — SCANDAL EVEN — THAT SEVERAL BUSINESSES? HAVE BEEN GRANTED WAIVERS EXCUSING THEM FROM PARTICIPATION IN THE FEDERAL PROGRAM.
    ——————————————–

    SOUND FAMILIAR?

    Who has been TARGETED for Obamacare WAIVERS?

    LABOR UNIONS representing 543,812 employees
    PRIVATE EMPLOYERS representing 69,813 employees
    DENIED? 96 waiver requests were DENIED by HHS representing?

    AND Congress’s Exemption from Obamacare?

    Congress and their staffs WILL receive generous subsidies from WE THE TAXPAYING AMERICAN THE PEOPLE

    Congress and their staffs WILL BE THE only participants in the new Obamacare exchanges to receive TOTALLY FREE? AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE?

    Make Congress get insurance the same way “WE THE PEOPLE” do?

    HILL DENIZENS HOWL IN FURY?

    INDEED, THE HILL DEMOCRATS DID HOWL IN FURY?

    WHY DO WE THE PEOPLE HOWL IN FURY?

    IT’S TIME CONVENE YET ANOTHER CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE THE OBAMACARE SCANDAL

    Now that the majority of the waivers were handed out to LABOR UNIONS

    “Documents released in a classic Friday afternoon news dump show that labor unions representing 543,812 workers received waivers from President Barack Obama‘s signature legislation,” writes Paul Conner of the Daily Caller.

    “By contrast, private employers with a total of 69,813 EMPLOYEES, many of whom work for SMALL BUSINESSES, were granted waivers.” ns.

    A TOTAL OF 96 WAIVER REQUESTS WERE DENIED BY HHS. Why the healthcare law couldn’t be “flexible” for those 96 requests is anyone’s guess?

    June 28, 2012 The Supreme Court upheld Obamacare individual mandate as a tax

    HOW WOULD THE RESULTS OF A CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE INVESTIGATION INTO THE OBAMACARE WAIVER SCANDAL PLAY OUT IN A FUTURE SUPREME COURT RULING?

    MY COMMENT AND QUESTIONS

    WHEN SHOULD CONGRESS AND THE JUSTICE DEPT INVESTIGATE the federal cover-ups? abuse of power? ethics? nepotism? corruption? fraud? surveillance programs?

    1. WHEN THEY VIOLATE THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF AMERICAN CITIZENS?

    2. WHEN CAREER POLITICIANS and THEIR POLITICAL AMBITION, GREED AND DECEIT, DENIES PROSPERITY, LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?

    3.WHEN CAREER POLITICIANS PROFIT FROM NEPOTISM? favoritism shown by somebody in power to relatives and friends, especially in appointing them to good positions

    4.WHEN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM PAID LOBBYISTS, SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS AND UN-REPORTED LOBBYING BY GOVERNMENT UNION EMPLOYEE S AFFECT ELECTION OUTCOMES.

    5. WHEN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WANTS UNION CONTRACTS?
    AND APPOINTED FEDERAL/GOVERNMENT AGENCIES GIVE UNIONS CONTRACTS?

    6. WHEN APPOINTED AGENCIES MANDATE UNFUNDED RULES AND
    TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION
    IS CALLED BY ANY OTHER NAME. RESTORATION, TOLLS, FEES, MITIGATION, PERMITS, LICENSING?

    7. WHEN THE LEGAL DEFINITION OF TORTURE IS CHANGED TO PUNISHMENT

    8. WHEN APPOINTED AGENCIES PRACTICE SUE AND SETTLE WITH SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS?

    9. WHEN DEFENSE BUDGET IS $745.2 BILLION AND FOREIGN AIDE IS $37 BILLION?

    10. WHEN WOUNDED WARRIOR’S IS NOT FUNDED BY THE USA AND THE PROJECT IS LEFT TO CHARITY?

    WHEN SHOULD CONGRESS AND THE JUSTICE DEPT INVESTIGATE the federal cover-ups? abuse of power? ethics? nepotism? corruption? fraud? surveillance programs?

    US LAW? AND THE CRIME OF NO PUNISHMENT?

    IF YOU DO THE CRIME WHY ARE YOU ENTITLED TO RETIREMENT OR PROMOTION?

    YOU DECIDE.

    How American SUGAR Buys Protection

    SUGAR INTEREST GROUPS’ CONTRIBUTIONS

    “The industry makes so much money through federal price supports that it can afford to
    spend a lot to win political influence in Washington … JUST PLAIN AND SIMPLE, IT’S MONEY to a small group of growers. When you are getting that kind of money, you can work hard to preserve it. What they are doing is protecting money, protecting wealth, and protecting higher incomes.”
    A Capitol Hill SUGAR Expert, 1998

    In particular, we analyze the premium attached to power and willingness of Senators to maintain protectionist SUGAR policies,
    We examine SUGAR industry contributions to the reelection campaigns of U.S. Senators for the last 14 years.
    We attempt to shed light on the relationship between SUGAR industry contributions and
    incumbent Senators’ attributes

    The U.S. General Accounting Office (2002) estimated that the SUGAR program cost consumers about $1.5 billion in 1996 and about $1.9 billion in 1998. As Groombridge (2001, p. 1) has written: “nowhere is there a larger gap between the U.S. government’s free trade rhetoric and its protectionist practices than in the SUGAR program.”

    Soft money contributions are described as the main vehicle for wealthy individuals, corporations, and labor unions to deliver millions of dollars to political parties without regard for the limits and other requirements of the law

    FactCheck.org : Infrastructure Jobs for Union Workers Only?

    Feb 26, 2009 – Q: Did Obama require that all infrastructure jobs in the stimulus bill go to union workers? … requiring” union labor for “large-scale” government contracts. … 6, Obama issued Executive Order 13502 that encourages federal …

    It’s not often that we receive chain e-mails that actually check out, but this one, while exaggerated, is largely right. On Feb. 6, Obama issued Executive Order 13502 that encourages federal agencies to “consider requiring the use of project labor agreements in connection with large-scale construction projects in order to promote economy and efficiency in Federal procurement.” A project labor agreement requires contractors and subcontractors to pay union wages and to recognize collective bargaining agreements. The order “does not require” project labor agreements, but it’s reasonable to say that “encouragement” from the president is likely to carry considerable weight with federal agencies.
