Federal workers unhappy with wage freeze

New York Daily News reports anger at federal employee salary freeze.

Irate federal workers in New York had a few choice words for President Obama‘s decision Monday to freeze their wages for the next two years.

“That’s why Obama’s ratings are below [ex-President George W.] Bush’s, and that’s hard to be unless you’re Osama Bin Laden,” said Rosemarie Clemmens of Manhattan.

We are talking Manhattan, liberal Obama-loving NYC..

What is infuriating about this is our out-of-touch, arrogant president proposes this only After tripling the deficit and spending millions, if not billions, on trips to Spain and trips to India and every place else on the planet, playing golf and partying during the rare times he is actually in D. C., and now he wants to dump on citizens whether they be federal workers or old people.  The only way this would be acceptable is if he and all members of congress would take $1.00 per year for two years.  Then they could say they were true “public servants” and Obama would have his ever-lovin’ shared sacrifice.  Only then.

Another story from the foreign press on the Obama trip

Probably not since the days of the Pharaohs or the more ludicrous Roman Emperors has a head of state travelled in such pomp and expensive grandeur as the President of the United States of America.

While lesser mortals – the Pope, Queen Elizabeth and so on – are usually happy to let their hosts handle most of the security and transport arrangements when they venture beyond their home shores, the United States creates a mini-America on the move to ensure that nothing is left to chance.

Here you go, Anderson.  Another story to debunk.  CNN must cover for the president at all cost.  Get those investigative reporters out of mothballs.  Had the American press and media done some reporting on this story, which is really important as to the cost and purpose of the trip with unemployment in the U. S. still at 9.6 percent, then we would not have to rely on the foreign press for details and pictures.   And a lot of fabulous pictures, too.  Make sure you keep Michele Bachmann honest now.  Oh, and by the way, have you been able to uncover some trip she is taking wasting tax payers money yet?  I didn’t think so.

Are the Obamas going into exile?  I’m beginning to wonder.  Better check on that, Andy.
