Please give me a break!
You know, I WANT to write a normal non-political post, I really do, but the administration refuses to give me a break. How much insanity can you people create?
The craziness continues.
“President Bush issued an executive order Thursday allowing federal contractors rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to pay below the prevailing wage.”
Have you gone totally fucking insane or have your true self-serving self of catering only to the rich finally showing itself?
What is your response to one of the worst disasters this country has ever seen? First, you are slow and unresponsive to help the poor majority that was affected. They’re poor, fuck’em right? Now, you want to use this disaster to help these rich and big companies even more? You ARE a fucking great leader for this country.
What exactly do you think this will do for the country and for the people affected? At a time when people need to rebuild their city and their lives, they need to make some money. What do you do? You take that wage right under them. You give these big companies the right to pay people LESS?!
Oh my fucking lord!! What the fuck is wrong with you?
Do you somehow think this will lower the cost of rebuilding? The federal contracts use strict formulas to decide how much money should be spent. These formulas include things like prevailing wages. They calculate that and then add a profit percentage on top of it.
Of course, that was until now. Now your ignorant self-righteous self has made it ok for the big companies that are rewarded with these contracts to pay less than the normal wage. These savings aren’t being passed on to anyone but their profit bottom line.
Basically, the companies get the same money from the government, but they have lower costs because they don’t have to pay their people as much.
This will NOT create more jobs, and if it does. It just means more people are making less than sustainable wages. How the fuck does that help the people affected or anyone but the companies? Oh please explain that to me oh wise one.
The law that you revoked was created for a reason. To protect greedy fuck wades like you and your friends from taking advantage of people in the lower socio-economical status during a disaster.
You, Mr. President, are a fucking embarrassment.
I’m not saying that I pronounce things clearly or correctly all the time, and at times I mumble, BUT
I think I would know enough by now to not call this Hurricane Corinna as the first lady, Laura Bush yesterday. Not once, but twice.
Fan Fucking Tastic.
Now for a Friday Funny
Jon Stewart: The president has vowed to personally lead the investigation into the government's failed response to Katrina? Isn't that a job perhaps someone else should be doing?
Samantha Bee: No, not at all, Jon. To truly find out what went wrong, it's important for an investigator to have a little distance from the situation. And it's hard to get any more distant from it than the president was last week.
