Voters vs Non-Voters

Cops Behaving Badly

There are many dirty little secrets in law enforcement. Many of these have to simply do with screwing the taxpayer. Let me run down a short list for those of you that don't already know this.

1) Many agencies provide take home vehicles to investigators, sergeants, and other high level command staff. Some agencies offer take home vehicles to jail administrators and other people as well. Many of these people will NEVER be called after hours and need to respond. Typically there is only one investigator on-call at any given time yet they all get take home vehicles. There is simply no excuse or need for all these take home vehicles. The taxpayer is paying for this. This is a little perk that many in law enforcement know about and it is a very big perk..... think about it, no car payment, insurance, maintenance or gas. This is all covered. On average, you can easily estimate many thousands of dollars a year. This is money that the rest of us have to pay in order to get to work and home and maintain our vehicles.

2) Early retirement....... this is the biggest scam. Law enforcement and fire fighters have worked this to perfection over the years. They have made the public and politicians think that their jobs are so much more important and stressful than any other job that they deserve to retire at a very young age because of this. So, we retire them anywhere from 50-54 years old on average and pay them a good retirement benefit and then guess what????? Many of them go off and get other public safety jobs and keep working! Huh? I thought they had to retire early because of the stress. If they are going off and getting other jobs in the same field then we shouldn't be retiring them so early. This is a big scam.

In my current job, I work with many retired cops that are now investigators in my agency. They are pulling down big retirement money along with a big salary and tons of overtime. Most are making in the mid to high 6 figures.

3) Along with the early retirement, the actual retirement income is often based on what they call the "High 5". This means that their retirement is based on the 5 highest earning years they had while on the job. So, guess what? Towards the end of their career most look to get into positions where they can accrue a ton of overtime which is calculated into their retirement income. Yep, one of the most ridiculous things ever but the taxpayer is on the hook for this. So, many are pulling down around 6 figures with the overtime for 5 years and then they are getting a huge retirement income....... even if every other year they worked was half that. These retirement systems are not based on what the employee contributes, they are simply based on what the employee makes. The nation would be broke if all retirements were based on this. It isn't a financially feasible scenario.........unless your backed by the taxpayer.

Sorry about the length of this, but these are important things that the average citizen simply doesn't know and our politicians and the public safety unions will do everything they can to prevent you from knowing OR they will try to tug at your heart and justify why they are so special and you should support them.

I see this from the inside an I know that most people in public safety know this is a scam as well but they are participating in it and they don't want it to end. I will get many a smirk on the face of a coworker when we talk about these things.......... because they know.

20 Reasons You Wouldn’t Want To Live In An America Controlled By Liberals Like Obama

The only thing more disturbing than the arrogance, incompetence, and lawlessness of Barack Obama’s administration is that most liberals are perfectly fine with everything he’s doing. It’s shocking that there are so many Americans who don’t care about the Constitution, the rule of law, or even what happens to the country just as long as someone they agree with ideologically is in charge. In fact, the only time liberals seem to get really upset these days is if someone criticizes Barack Obama or tries to put ANY KIND of restraint on his power. Want to know how America would look if liberals like Barack Obama had complete control of the country?

1) Abortion would be the only “choice.” Almost everything else including light bulbs, TVs, health care plans, cars, and the schools your child goes to would be chosen for you by people in D.C.

2) You could be sued for failing to warn people that you are about to say something that could conceivably be offensive to women, gays, transsexuals, or minorities.

3) Every sports fan of teams like the Redskins, Braves, Chiefs, Indians, Blackhawks, and Seminoles would be branded as a bigot and all of those teams would be forced to change their names.

4) We would have open borders and anyone who walks across would be welcome to sign up as a citizen and collect welfare, food stamps, and Social Security.

5) It would be illegal to say the Pledge of Allegiance or fly an American flag because it might “offend people.”

6) All criticism of black and Hispanic politicians would be shrugged off and treated as racism.

7) Government investigations of liberal wrongdoing would be handled by friends, associates, or campaign contributors of the liberal being charged.

8) So many nuclear and coal plants would be shut down that we’d end up with regularly scheduled blackouts in many parts of the country.

9) Anyone could choose not to work and get a monthly stipend from the state — well, until the money runs out.

10) Cities, states, and even well-connected big businesses that spend irresponsibly and go broke could always be bailed out by the federal government.

11) Women would have to get mandatory abortion counseling from Planned Parenthood before giving birth just to make sure they are ready to have a child.

12) Conservative talk radio, blogs, websites and especially Fox News would be regulated out of existence and only government-approved media sources would be allowed.

13) Christians and conservatives would have to hide their beliefs to get government jobs.

14) The IRS would be allowed to audit people solely for contributing to conservative candidates or being a member of conservative groups.

15) Men who have sex with women who are drinking would be treated as rapists by default.

16) Merit and even basic competence would be secondary in importance to hiring people who are the right race or sex for a job.

17) Any child who plays with a toy gun would be considered a potential psychopath and expelled from school.

18) Americans would only be allowed to buy tiny, overpriced electric cars that don’t work very well.

19) It would be illegal to oppose gay marriage.

20) Guns would be confiscated from everyone except the criminals, the cops, the military, and the bodyguards for rich liberals.
