This is an excellent resource for obtaining information of the salaries of many Federal Government employees, as of 2010. While I’ve seen various internet stories about this resource, I was amazed at the number of people not familiar with it. Unfortunately, if you are a small-government advocate, you may find yourself a little steamed when you see the size of these bureaucratic departments/agencies and many of the salaries within them.

Did you know:

The Federal Communication Commission

+/-1800 employees

Current Annual Budget = $354 Million

(550+) Titled Lawyers @ $125,000/yr+

(57+) Titled Economist @ $130,000/yr+

(400+) Titled MISCELLANEOUS ADMINISTRATION AND PROGRAM

(100+) Titled MISCELLANEOUS CLERK AND ASSISTANT

You know, the agency who has deemed pharmaceutical drug commercial advertising on TV a benefit to society, the agency who allows broadcasters to eat up 1/3 of your TV viewing time with commercials, while paying a subscription for the TV service, which was initially in lieu of having to sit through and watch commercials, the agency who deems a faceless T&A shot as fleeting nudity acceptable for all ages, the agency that allows broadcasters to implant 1/4 of your TV screen with ongoing promotions while you try to watch TV, an agency which has deemed that the consolidation and control of the airwaves (TV and radio) by a small number of corporations to be a great benefit to the American public, etc… So, you wonder why this agency seems to serve the interests of a small number of corporations over the American public? Because it does and you the taxpayer don’t count!

You would expect President Obama to continue loading his administration with big-government-loving Keynesian debt financing advocates. The newest addition, Alan Krueger, is no exception. A read through some of his work reveals what we already expected. More importantly, for whomever is actually pulling Obama’s puppet strings and running America into the ground, he’s another Bill Clinton administration retread.

We have already read that Krueger supports a VAT tax for Americans here in A Future Consumption Tax to Fix Today’s Economy on top of our current income tax. So what else does this Keynesian clown support.

1) He contends that the “banker bailout” TARP was very successful. Yes it was when you define success as the banking industry’s ability to extort taxpayer dollars to support their fraudulent activity and incentivise them to continue this activity knowing that the “too big to fail” propaganda was successfully hoisted on the backs of sheep-like ignorant Americans. Here’s the video of Krueger’s praise.

This video from Government Gone Wild is very informative.

Please link to this video and pass it around to everyone you know.

If government continues to grow at this rate, as Maxine Waters and her cabal of progressive kooks would like, our entire nation will be going “straight to hell” (in Maxine Water’s handbag).

The American unemployment situation has not improved. Obama has a plan to ease the pain. Unfortunately, it’s not the pain of unemployed Americans. His plan only benefits illegal aliens as he goes against the wishes of the majority of Americans looking to enforce our immigration laws. Obama chooses to pander to the Latino community for much needed votes in 2012. Do you feel like someone in the White House is flipping you off? Get used to it or make a change in the Whitehouse.

The Establishment Keynesians, the D.C Intelligentsia statists, and Marxists-owned Mainstream Media are up in arms about Rick Perry’s comments on “The Benanke” and The Federal Reserve bank. Well, seeing that the aforementioned groups are the ones responsible for America economic woes and dire financial straits, the comment has merit.

Who suffers/loses from the Federal Reserve Banks QE actions:

  • American citizens through price inflation of goods and services
  • American citizens not provided interest on their savings
  • American small businesses utilizing debt to finance operations not given adequate access to low interest loans afforded to the Federal Reserve member banks
  • Americans indebtedness to the Federal Reserve Bank for the spread they make on buying up U.S. Treasuries with money created from thin air

Who benefits/profits from the Federal Reserve QE actions:

  • The Federal Reserve member banks given minimal interest loans to clean-up their accounting fraud
  • The Federal Reserve member banks given minimal interest loans to buy U.S. treasuries and profit from the interest spread
  • Well-connected American and multinational corporations to clean up their finances and to buy their own stock
  • Other world Central Banks so they clean up their accounting fraud and lend to their member banks to clean up their fraud, at minimal interest, and to buy U.S. Treasuries/other sovereign debt so they can profit from the interest spread

I’m glad to see a black liberal come out in favor of a balanced budget. More liberals should follow Munk’s lead.
