Reagan did something like that with air traffic controllers and I don't think anyone missed them.PkrBum wrote:I'd just fire every govt employee making over 100k a year.
That's a good idea. and the pension packages need to be looked at too.PkrBum wrote:I'd just fire every govt employee making over 100k a year.
This government is now a welfare trough for BOTH what you call the "1%" (probably more like the top 5 - 10%) AND whatever percentage is on the dole at the lower end of the scale.2seaoat wrote:Shutting down the government is inept and cost taxpayers money. We need congress to work as much as they did in 1968, and we need to pass budgets which are balanced. We need to elect people who will work together to do the people's business, not be shills for special interests. So I would disagree with everybody. Shutting down the government is admitting that we are incapable of governing ourselves. That is exactly what the 1% entrenched Oligarchy has tried to achieve, and five have taken it hook, line, and sinker on this thread. I will work for folks who will do the business of this nation, and not participate in media circus.
We have only one vote in the congressional election.2seaoat wrote:Seagoat is going to take that common sense as a direct challenge... nice try tho Bob.
It is not common sense. It is submission and subjection to special interests who think the American public is too stupid and complacent to demand representation from our congressmen and senators. .
Your just stupid. No other way to put it.2seaoat wrote:We simply need primaries in both parties. Free rides allow money to control. Ideas challenged are usually good ideas, and the people can make good decisions, but this idea that shutting down the government is good government is an absurd alien concept which could only get traction with crazy or stupid people. America is wise, and the crazy and stupid may take some time to flush the system, but good government works.
In hind site it was a blip on the radar. President Ronald Reagan warned them numerous times that if they went on an ILLEGAL strike, they would be fired. President Reagan drew a red line on the tarmac. The Union leaders told their members that President Reagan was bluffing, would cave to their demands if they showed their power and went on strike.TEOTWAWKI wrote:Reagan did something like that with air traffic controllers and I don't think anyone missed them.PkrBum wrote:I'd just fire every govt employee making over 100k a year.

You still make me smile Chrissy. If I was sexy to you, I would be a woman........a very unattractive 6 foot three inch woman......a bearded lady at that......so once again, you are just right on this issue. I am not sexy.
Oh yeah give Bob credit for what I said...poor Teo never gets any respect..boo hoo.ZVUGKTUBM wrote:Reagan was a shyster. He showed everyone how prosperity could be had today by robbing future Americans. He ran the first large peacetime deficits in 1981/82, and after that the government was hooked on that heroin.
I think it was Bob who stated on an earlier thread that Reagan bewailed about tearing down Big Government, all the while growing it even bigger than it already was. I am sorry I ever voted for that huckster.
