Most of the residents of the United States, employed in the private sector, have known or suspected for years,  public employees are paid more and are provided better benefits than are private sector employees.

If you happen to be among the American citizens not sharing in the above knowledge, you can find the information by following the story found through the link pasted below:

Buffet Gets A Buffet From Obama

According to an article on or in The Washington Times,  almost without “warning”.Warren Buffet stands to dine at the table set for him by Obama and his State Department’s lack of support for thousands of jobs in the USA. The Keystone XL pipeline, once to be built from Canada to Houston, Texas has been left exposed to the millionaires among environmentalists, green people and assorted other opponents to real job creation in this country. 

 Warren Buffett, whom President Obama likes to cite as a fair-minded billionaire while arguing for higher taxes on the wealthy, stands to benefit from the president’s decision to reject the Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.

Mr. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. owns Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC, which is among the railroads that would transport oil produced in western Canada if the pipeline isn’t built.

Obama’s rejection of the pipeline comes three years after the initial application was made to construct the pipeline and just when it amounts to political expediency and a thumbing of the nose toward energy independence for this country:

 “Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Neb.-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc., told Bloomberg News. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul,” she said.

The Obama administration rejected TransCanada’s request for a permit on Jan. 18, saying there was not enough time to review the proposal by Feb. 21, the deadline imposed by congressional Republicans eager to see the pipeline built. The decision came from the State Department, although Mr. Obama said he agreed with it.

If completed, the $7 billion Keystone XL would deliver 700,000 barrels a day of crude from oil sands in Canada to Texas refineries on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. It would traverse about 1,600 miles.

Republicans, labor unions and even some Democrats have criticized the administration’s rejection of the pipeline permit, saying it would create up to 20,000 jobs. Critics accuse the president of buckling to pressure from environmentalists who oppose the project and are important to Mr. Obama’s re-election effort.

What was that about transparency?  Obama has consistently spouted transparency, has he not?  In addition to Buffet’s buffet and other railroad’s largesse, do you think there might be investors in renewables walking this project to the gallows?  Yep, me too.

Your Time — Your Dime

Some federal employees, supposedly working for you, may not spend any time at all doing so.  Instead, they may be spending all of their work hours, working on union business matters, in government buildings, using government supplies and equipment, such as telephones and computers.

How do you like that Mr. and Ms. American Citizen?  Does it help you understand where the words “sap citizen” came from?  Would you like to know just how many hours are utilized in these union endeavors and would you be interested in how many of your dollars are spent on this union largess provided by and through your United States government?

I thought you would like to know, and I believe, after you read the article available through the link found just below, you will be sufficiently energized to participate fully with the conservative movement.

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

This is a sad commentary on our society.  More, it is an ugly picture and statement about our public places and their lack of safety and security,  and the scarce responsibility shown by some managers and others in charge.  As you view this video, you may cry for the victim, but if you don’t feel shame for or on  the perpetrators, you surely have no soul.

There are no heroes in this video, there is only one lone white woman heroine who intercedes and takes action and probably prevents more damage to the victim.  The heroine and the victim seem to be the only white people in the McDonald’s so-called restaurant, but there are several black employees who shamelessly fail to stop the beating.

Finally, just before the victim is dragged from the sorry excuse for a business, the older woman manages to stop the young black female thugettes.  Shortly, afterwards the victim begins to have seizures and one of the male employees directs the beaters (he is heard to shout the name Jacque or Jackie?) to leave,  because the police are coming.

The business franchisee and McDonald’s owe the world an apology for having non-caring or perhaps even  criminal employees.  I trust this young victim will own a substantial piece of the franchisee’s and McDonald’s ill-gotten gains from this pitiful place.

I had not originally identified the victim as male or female, but reports have indicated that the victim was transgender, was attempting to use the female toilet facility and when asked to leave refused to do so. Allegedly that is when the beatings started.  Even if the transgender victim (if she was transgender) instigated the beginning of the fight, there is no justification for the continued actions of the beaters and the lack of effective action by the employees.

This sort of violence has become all too common in public locations and fast-food restaurants.  MacDonald’s seems not the place to have a HAPPY MEAL.®, maybe we should think about eating at a more pleasant and less life-threatening location.  You will find the video below, but remember the warning above:
