Administrator earns more
than $22,000 monthly

Daily News (Longview, WA), by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:TeapartyM, 1/7/2013 11:11:29 AM

A retired Portland city administrator made more than $22,000 a month last fall after being awarded no-bid contracts with the city and the school district, the Oregonian reported Sunday. Officials said they generally prefer competitive contracting, but added that no one else offered Yvonne Deckard´s expertise.The pay wasn't out of line for specialized work and contracts didn't violate any policies, but the deals raise questions about competition among contractors _ particularly when a former employee is involved.

Comments:
Note later in the article that she retired with a public pension of over $10,000 per month as well. This in little old Oregon; think about this kind of thing multiplied by thousands nationwide, and it adds to the argument that we are on an unsustainable financial road. As if we don´t have enough proof otherwise by looking at Congress and Obama.

His expertise is in knowing how to game the system.

Government Employees see nothing wrong with this. The non-taxpaying voters see nothing wrong with this. Only the fraction that work in the private sector and pay taxes see this as a problem. Nothing will change.

#3 I am a government employee and see this as not only VERY WRONG but criminal.

Didn´t Obama say that at some point you´ve made enough money? Would he tell her that? No, of course not.

I don´t know why there is a belief that gov. employees pay no taxes??? Believe me, I do.

Idaho has limits to the amount of sick and annual leave the employee can accrue. After the employee hits the limit it´s use or lose. It was established decades ago for just this circumstances given in the story.

Each State is unique so please be aware when general statements about pay and benefits are made that not all government employees work in California or New York (though it seems like it).

Hmmm, what kind of special skills could this person have that no one else has and that would merit $22k per month income???? Is she a high priced hooker? I can´t think of any administrative skill that would merit that pay.

Boehner: It´s time for
Impeachment or Resignation

The headline is a statement to, not a quote from Boehner, but it was worth the deception to make the point. President Obama has been given so much slack by an enabling Washington D.C. media, that Obama is now hanging onto the rope to avoid falling into the abyss. The fawning media who placed all their political bets on his success, is unwilling to admit publicly (and perhaps even privately) what they know in their brains but unwilling to let their heart in on: Obama is and always was a phony.

Steve Jobs and Rush Limbaugh

Because of the release of a new movie about him, I wish to discuss Steve Jobs and his obvious success. But to do that leads me to one of Jobs’ greatest admirers, Rush Limbaugh. Rush’s fondness for Steve Jobs began with Rush’s great love of technology. He didn’t become enamored with Apple products because of Steve Jobs, he became enamored with Jobs because of his products. Rush knew they must have been demanded by someone who thought like he did: attempt as much as possible to achieve perfection.

Anti-Christian extremist groups like the ACLU, the Freedom From Religion Foundation and People for the American Way hate God. They also hate America. True America. These “progressive” outfits – along with like-minded politicos, judges, Hollywood elitists and left-wing media-types – hate that this great nation was expressly founded upon the bedrock precepts of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

He was the President, a position with the highest command authority in the history of the world, but the community organizer went to bed. [What follows is speculation of what took place in the days before and after the attack in Libya, by the Obama campaign, the Clinton State Department and the Administration. It´s plausible because everything these people do is fraught with the ultimate fictional possibilities of power at any cost.]

The budget-strapped University of California squanders millions on mindless diversity programs. In the summer of 2012, as the University of California reeled from one piece of bad budget news to another, a veteran political columnist sounded an alarm. Cuts in state funding were jeopardizing the university’s mission of preserving the “cultural legacy essential to any great society,” Peter Schrag warned in the Sacramento Bee:

It’s starting. Well, it’s been predicted, but what’s beginning is something even America’s low-informed might notice but only when in front of their collective faces. Banks in southern Europe are beginning to restrict access to bank accounts. That this phenomenon will make its way across the pond is becoming rather clear, but only to those who listen carefully. Our money, the dollar we once knew, is now only virtual. The dollar our country made the standard of the world, has become an X and an O repeated and created trillions of times over each day without anything to back up its value. We’ve been off the gold standard since 1972, and since then the dollar established itself as the fiat currency of the world.

Another Chance to Kill Obamacare

“Unconstitutional? Absolutely. It’s like dropping a Ford Pinto engine into a totaled Ferrari body, patching it up and then selling it to some unsuspecting dupe as a “brand new Ferrari.” “But Republican governors are folding like cheap lawn chairs,” you say. “And political eunuchs in the GOP establishment are bowing to Obama like he bows to foreign dictators. Any hope of repeal is long dead, and besides, Chief Justice John Roberts put the final nail in the judicial coffin last summer, didn’t he? Any chance of killing the Obamacare zombie is gone, right?” Wrong.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
