DO AS I SAY AND NOT AS I DO

January 8, 2010


DO AS I SAY AND NOT AS I DO

Do you ever wonder how people spend their time?  This CAN BE a very personal question depending upon who you ask and yet, maybe we need to ask it more often of some people. The last decade was a bumper time for political scandals. The misdeeds were very interesting, if not fascinating.  Sex seems to be the activity of choice although income tax evasion was a close second.  2009 in particular was notable.  Let’s take a look at only a few names.

John Ensign:   Senator (R)  State of Nevada—Affair with former staffer.

Mark Sandford: Governor  (R)   State of South Carolina—Affair with reporter—Brazil

Rod Blagojevich:  Governor (D)  State of Illinois –Conspiracy and Bribery

John Edwards:  Senator & Presidential Candidate (D)  State of South Carolina—Affair

Eliot Spitzer:  Governor (D)  State of New York—Affair with hooker

Deborah Jeane Palfrey—D.C. Madam—Ran an upscale prostitution service for high-rollers; i.e. Congress

Larry Craig:  Senator (R)  State of Idaho—Possible homosexual advance

 Mark Foley:  Representative (R) State of Florida—Propositioning interns

Jack Abramoff:  D.C. Lobbiest  (R)  –Income Tax evasion

Charlie Rangel: Representative (D) State of New York—Income tax evasion

Tim Geithner:  Secretary of Treasury (D)—Income tax evasion

OK so nobody is perfect but you must admit, these kids have been really busy with 58% of the activity being sexual in nature.  You have to wonder why these high-profile politicians can’t be normal and simply rob us blind like in the “good old days”.  ( OH wait, they’re doing that also. )  Speaking of robbery, take a look at the various pay scales these guys are suffering under.  ( Please keep in mind we have a 10+% unemployment rate in this country with 85,000 additional jobs being lost during the month of December 2009.

Average pay for a governor—$124,398

Average pay for US Senator—$174,000

Average pay for member of House–$174,000

Governor of New York—$179,500

Governor of South Carolina–$106,078

Governor if Illinois–$155,600

A good romp in the hay takes at least one hour and then you’ve got transportation to and from the “scene of the crime”.  Also, consider the fact that you’re taking up your driver’s time.  ( No self-respecting senator or member of the House would be seen driving his own car.  It would really look bad come reelection time. )  Thirty minutes there, thirty minutes back—at least two man-hours of time.   One hour with your “sweetie”, that’s three additional man-hours; i.e. 1.) Member of Congress, 2.) Driver and 3.) Hooker, etc.  ( Of course this assumes that the “man of the house” is not on his way to Brazil to be with his soul mate. )  Time flies when you’re having fun but that’s a minimum of five (5) man-hours for just one “outing”.  When you consider these guys put in a good four hour day, you really have to wonder who is minding the store. 

How to we get a job like that?

      Hello One Week. Our politicians feel they are above the law but sometimes they get caught “with their pants down”. The latest round of misbehavior was the genesis for this posting. These guys feel they can do just about anything and get away with it. Take care and do come back.
