Yeah - 'Legalized' Crime ...

How The 'Haves' Continue 'Having'!





SHALL THE TRUTH
SET YOU FREE?

GUV’MINT


First Job, back in ’58 - SSA GS-2 File Clerk -
In ’61, GS-4 Tab Machine Operator -
In May & June, we ran BLANK IBM Cards during Day -
And ran REAL work, at Night, on Over-Time!


OBJECT? To USE UP Budget ...
So SSA w/get More $ In July, Fiscal Year -
We BLEW Tax-Payer $ ... WHY?
Unused $ = Budget CUTS! ERGO, Guv’Mint WASTE!


Had Great Benefits: Annual/Sick Leave ...
Civil Service Retirement ...
Better than the Masses, with Social Security ...
Get a Guv’Mint JOB!

EMPLOYMENT:

Here, in Maryland, the STATE is Largest Employer -
65,000 PLUS ... State Employees ...
With: Great Earnings & Great Benefits!
Great Annual/Sick Leave/Retirement ...


Better than the Masses, Also ...
Have Friends who not only made More $ than Me -
But also, Double the Retirement Income!
Get a Guv’Mint JOB!


JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY -
The CITADEL of America!
A ‘Non-Profit’ (supposedly) ...
Over 34,000 Employees - Second Largest Employer!


Great Earnings/Benefits/Sick Leave ...
Retirement Plan - Many Locations -
The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions!
University - Medical School - Hospital - More!


Back in the 1800’s the Benefactor -
Johns H. Hopkins Donated 7 Million $ -
His Will Specified a Separate University & Separate Hospital
‘THEY’ tried ‘Breaking the Will’ and Could Not!


The JHMI Above was a recent Ploy -
To get Everything 'Under One Roof’ -
So to Speak - Previously, ‘THEY’ -
Formed ‘The DOME' Corporation ...


Under this Separate Entity ‘THEY’ -
Stuck Certain Services, Like:
Janitorial Service, Security Service, Transportation Service -Under
An ‘Umbrella’ called ‘BROADWAY SERVICES’ ...


My First Stint’ there was 1966-1973 - 7 Years!
At age 33 - was Too Young for Retirement Plan!
Last ‘Stint’ 1998-2006 - 8 Years!
Retired on March 1st, 2006 ...


GUESS WHAT?


As the Years ‘Rolled By’ - ‘THEY’ ...
Kept Changing the FORMULA to Qualify for Retirement -
I Never got ‘Credit’ for my First 7 Years -
Thus, my ‘Whopping’ Monthly Benefit is $186.00 !


‘THEY’ Know How to ‘Pull Strings’ -
And Practically Create Their Own -
Human Relations RULES!
Non-Profit ... INDEED!


IS THERE A ‘MORAL’ ?


YEP!

Guv’Mints n’ Huge Entities ...
Create THEIR Own Rules ...
And SCREW the ‘Little Guy’ ...
All - Perfectly ‘LEGAL’ !


I’ll Bet ‘A Dollar to a Donut’ That -
YOUR STATE DOES THE SAME THING!
Did’Ja Ever Check?
Imagine 50 States Bitchin’ about Cutting Costs!


P.S. ...

Guv’mints n’ Big Non-Profits ...
Have Reaped Great Benefits ...
Not Unlike UNION Members ...
For DECADES Now!


TRUTH vs. FREEDOM ...
FEEL ‘FREE’ YET?

The only thing is that it is not sustainable and there will be a financial day of reckoning for everybody with their lips clamped firmly on that guv'mint teat. Patrick
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 6/8/2012
While doing the budget for my vice president of administration at a Texas State University, I asked my boss why he didn't increase the salaries of the custodians because they were below the poverty line. He replied, “I can't do that, they wouldn't know what to do with the money. It would upset everything.” And then he went ahead and generously padded his salary every year that he remained until he was caught pinching the piggy bank and ousted (he kept most of his salary and all of his retirement).

Just last week, janitors in Houston, one of the richest cities–thanks to big oil–in this recession poor country, were in the streets, demanding higher salaries and better treatment.

Still kicking the can down the road…

The problem with kicking the can down the road the way the government does, is that as the years go by it grows into a 16 trillion dollar can and one day turns around and starts kicking our cans back up the road.
