Mr Bob and I were talking the other day how we can get a lot more money. Mr Bob was thinking that we could possibly take jobs as guard dogs, but who would take a Greyhound seriously as a guard dog. I though that I could be a super model, but it is so hard to wear those spike heals on four legs.  But the more we thought about it we figured we need to be CEO’s of some big company and get a fantastic bonus for really screwing up a company.

When you figure that than 7,600 employees of failed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac received more than 210 million dollars in bonuses. The people who screwed up Merrill Lynch got to go on grand vacations at the Ritz-Carlton.  Don’t even get us started on AIG, GM, Ford and the scores of other companies who CEO’s and/or Board of Directors have driven good companies into the ground.

Sounded good until I looked up the definition of bonus and found that it means:

bo⋅nus/ˈboʊnəs/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [boh-nuhs] Show IPA
-noun, plural -nus⋅es.
1. something given or paid over and above what is due.
2. a sum of money granted or given to an employee, a returned soldier, etc., in addition to regular pay, usually in appreciation for work done, length of service, accumulated favors, etc.
3. something free, as an extra dividend, given by a corporation to a purchaser of its securities.
4. a premium paid for a loan, contract, etc.
5. something extra or additional given freely: Every purchaser of a pound of coffee received a box of cookies as a bonus.

Origin: 1765-75; < L: good

Synonyms:
1. reward, honorarium, gift. 2. Bonus, bounty, premium refer to something extra beyond a stipulated payment. A bonus is a gift to reward performance, paid either by a private employer or by a government: a bonus based on salary; a soldiers’ bonus. A bounty is a public aid or reward offered to stimulate interest in a specific purpose or undertaking and to encourage performance: a bounty for killing wolves. A premium is usually something additional given as an inducement to buy, produce, or the like: a premium received with a magazine subscription.

Well, that doesn’t sound like somethings that those scoundrels deserved. We think it sounds more like greed and total disregard for the rest of the employees of the company or the tax payers of the United States. On the other hand, we bet that most member of Congress deserve a bonus also. Only they don’t always call them bonuses. They call it graft, which most of them are well versed in.

Perhaps there should be a requirement that anyone seeking public office undergo a complete and public audit of their tax returns going back seven years. This of course would be just so they wouldn’t be embarrassed when they got elected. We wonder how many of the serving members of Congress could pass such an order.

Of course, as usual, cartoonist say it best:

How to get a bonus.

How to get a bonus.

Hope ya’ll have a great weekend now ya hear,

Now this would explain a lot in DC.

Once again, Mr Bob’s favorite cartoonist has found the logical answer to the mess in Washington.  Wiley of Non Sequitur has a good explanation of how Washington got to the point it is today. Gloop must have landed in a very narrow area in the Capital district. We knew there had to be a logical explanation.

This sure explains a lot about DC!

This sure explains a lot about DC!

Mr Bob and I are enjoying a stay at a puppy hotel for a few days while our people are visiting our brother and his wife in Nashville. Good thing I remembered to pack the laptop and the hotel has free WiFi service.

Till next time,

Ms Fran

The gods would spit him out

Great theory, but in reality the gods would spit the scum out.

bankerHell, we would start with entire House and Senate, then work down to the lawyers. Get rid of all of them. We only hope that the American people will remember names like Frank, Dodd, Pelosi, Geithner, Reid and the rest of the bottom feeding Liberal Socialist.

At the next election, get these piles of dog crap out of office. We need to start with a 100% clean slate. Let real people speak for real people. Not these millionaire professional politicians. We need a government of the people, for the people and by the people.

Time to start the Revolution!

Ms. Pelosi for Sainthood!

Posted in Harry Reid, how sad, John Kerry, Killer Ted Kennedy, Ridiculous with tags on March 23, 2009 by Charon

We got this piece of terrific (or should that be horrific)  news from a dear friend. She works for a Catholic church in New York, so we know it has to be true. We congratulate the Cardinal for his wise and powerful words regarding Ms. Pelosi. He is obviously a man who knows how to tell the truth and the character of the people of whom he speaks.

Pass the collection plate.

On a Saturday afternoon, in Washington, D. C., House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s aide visited the Cardinal of the Catholic cathedral in New York City.

He told the Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day’s sermon, and he asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the congregation and say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint.

The Cardinal replied, “No. I don’t really like the woman, and there are issues of conflict with the Catholic Church over certain of Pelosi’s views.” Pelosi’s aide then said, “Look. I’ll write a check here and now for a donation of $100,000 to your church if you’ll just tell the congregation you see Pelosi as a saint.”

The Cardinal thought about it and said, “Well, the church can use the money, so I’ll work your request into tomorrow’s sermon.” As Pelosi’s aide promised, House Speaker Pelosi appeared for the Sunday sermon and seated herself prominently at the edge of the main aisle.

And, during the sermon, as promised, the Cardinal pointed out that House Speaker Pelosi was present.

Then the Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation — “While Speaker Pelosi’s presence is probably an honor to some, she is not my favorite person. Some of her views are contrary to those of the church, and she tends to flip-flop on many other views.. Nancy Pelosi is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite, a thumb sucker, and a nit-wit. Nancy Pelosi is also a serial liar, a cheat, and a thief.

Nancy Pelosi is the worst example of a Catholic I have ever personally witnessed.

She married for money and is using it to lie to the American people. She also has a reputation for shirking her Representative obligations both in Washington, and in California. She simply is not to be trusted.”

The Cardinal completed his view of Pelosi with,
“But, when compared to Senators Ted Kennedy, Harry Reid, and John Kerry, House Speaker Pelosi is a saint.”

The Saint Herself.

The Saint Herself.

A Profound Short Little Paragraph.

Posted in freedom., legislate on March 18, 2009 by Charon

How very powerful a few short words can have, and with such deep meaning for these times.

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

The Ghost of Patton Speaks Wise Words For Our Time!

Ghost of Patton!

I think this is how General George S. Patton would sum things up…. and then catch holy hell from Ike. He sure had a unique way of expressing his thoughts.

ATTENTION!

patton-1

To ALL those whining, panty-waisted, pathetic Citizens, it’s time for a little refresher course on exactly why we Americans occasionally have to fight wars to keep this nation great.

patton-2

See if you can tear yourself away from your “reality” TV and Starbucks for a minute, pull your head out of your ass — and LISTEN UP!!

patton-3

Abu Ghraib is not “torture” or an “atrocity”. This is the kind of thing frat boys, sorority girls, and academy cadets do every year.

A little fun at someone else’s expense.

Certainly no reason to wring your hands or get your panties in a wad.

Got that ?

patton-4

THIS IS an atrocity!

Islam a peaceful religion???  My Ass!

Millions of these warped misled sons-of-bitches are plotting, as we speak, to destroy our country and our way of life any way they can. Some of them are here among us now.

They don’t want to convert you and don’t want to rule you. They believe you are a vile infestation of Allah’s paradise . They don’t give a shit how “progressive” you are, how peace-loving you are, or how much you sympathize with their cause.

They want your ass dead , and they think it is God’s will for them to do it.

patton-61

Some think if we give them a hug or listen to them, then they’ll like us, And if you agree?

Then you are a pathetic dumb ass!

If they manage to get their hands on a nuke, chemical agents, or even some anthrax — you will wish to God we had hunted them down and killed THEM while we had the chance.

How many more Americans must be beheaded ??
You’ve fallen asleep AGAIN, get your head out of your ass!
You may never get another chance!

NOW GET OFF YOUR SORRY ASS and pass this on to any and every person you give a damn about.. if you ever gave a damn about anything!

DISMISSED!

The Holidays

To All of Our Democrat Friends:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2009, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishes.

To All of Our Republican Friends:
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
