22 White House staffers make $172,200 a year
« on: July 01, 2014, 08:48:19 PM »

I don't find this shocking and indicative of this administration, and past ones as well, in just how government as a whole is bloated.

Gotta laugh though, look at a few of the titles they have.  Liked this one.......assistant to the president and director of speech writing, and assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications and speech writing.

Come on Fuzz, we both know the cost of living is high in suburban DC and there is only suburban DC.  You can't live in town unless you want to be mugged, oe worse.

What I'd be more interested in is how much income tax they pay............

Kind of my point.....this was just White House staff.  I'm talking government overall......all the other staffers for representatives and senators.  Add all the various "Departments" on top of that and it is logarithmic.

Last time I was there I stayed just off the red line it was shady but not much different from what's been going on here.

It's a crooked slide rule however.  Just reminded me, I have to get out my dad's K&E and make sure it's okay.

Been a few years since I saw a slide rule, but never recalled a crooked one.......not sure one could have been used to plot out logarithmic curves anyway.

Oh my...appears Bush paid his staff the same amount...and that was back in 2008 when a dollar had more purchasing power:

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Gee - the female staffers make less... than their male counterparts in the administration   

(wasn't this supposed to be fixed by Obama)  ;D

I pointed that out in the original post too FF.  This is not just an Obama issue.....it is an issue of really what is being spent to operate just the WH staff, then multiply that out for all of the other associated staff cost for Reps and Senators.  We have an overhead structure in paying assistants to the assistants and overseen by directors and the entire bureaucratic layers above even that.

I am perplexed at how and why the voting public keeps reelecting the very folks who continue to do business in the manner that supports a bureaucracy out of control.

The obvious answer is we really don't have a clear choice...  both parties are the same in this arena!

I'm guessing this is a major part of why voter turnout is spiraling lower and lower over the last few decades ;) ;) ;)

It's disgusting what all federal government workers make and how many there are.

But in my humble, white collar opinion BRD.......there is a clear choice in the matter.  Just sit back and imagine what the first group of newly elected/non-incumbents would talk about at their first meeting?????  Bet it's something like.."I guess the people are not satisfied with business as usual and want change."

And to me that is almost as sad as that I will never get to dip in Kim Kardashian's Honey Pot......if one chooses not to exercise their right and vote in the name of being unsatisfied and accepting business as usual should be kicked in the genitalia when complaining.
