It appears that Barney Frank a man who is a liar, tax cheat, buffoon and a politician (but I repeat myself) has taken the this hope and change thing really to heart. Has decided that he can finally come out of the closet for real — Barney, it appears, is a communist. It seams that Barney wants the government to dictate the salaries of ALL employees — this is communism. From the Washington Examiner:
the “Pay for Performance Act of 2009,” would impose government controls on the pay of all employees — not just top executives — of companies that have received a capital investment from the U.S. government. It would, like the tax measure, be retroactive, changing the terms of compensation agreements already in place.
First of all. Laws throughout our history have NEVER been applied retroactively. This is a new wrinkle brought on by the communists in this country a.k.a. The Democrat Party. This I am sure is an effort to more smoothly bring about more hope and change than we ever could imagine in our sickest nightmares.
Let me off this ride please. I grew up in a country where the sky is the limit because no joker, be it some elected buffoon like Barney, or some bureaucrat like Geithner could hold me back. My pay was a function of my talent and my ability to sell it. I had a market in which to sell my wares, and I have walked away from jobs where felt I was not appropriately appreciated. I have taken risks, and some have paid off handsomely. Others … I leave that to the imagination of the gentle reader.
This is only the beginning. If the federal government will feel empowered to do this for one reason, the states will do this others, and the federal government will then reach further. One does not even need to have total federal control for the impact to became pervasive throughout the market. For the naysayers whose knee jerk reaction will be to bray (like the jackasses they are) that, “This can’t happen here!” Well, look how far we have come in 70 days? These characters are on a power grab. They are not letting the crisis go to waste.
