Repeat After Me Mr. BUNNY…
Besides figuring out how to waste OUR money elsewhere, the useless dogs in washingtOOn also have to report on how much they personally pocketed of that wasted money last year. Besides the base salary of “just” $165,200 the regular idiots in the house and senate get. The so called “leaders” get even more:
Speaker of the house : $212,500
Minority and majority leaders: $183,500
These are old amounts. Since the weasels get AUTOMATIC COST OF LIVING INCREASES EVERY YEAR THIS YEARS PAY WILL BE HIGHER! As will next year, etc.
Don’t even get me started how much is wasted on those pigs in the executive branch. Just the amount it takes to pay for g’dubya’s flying redneck vacation Winnebago called “air force one” runs in the billions of dollars a year.
I don’t know how the poor bastards make ends meet!
Of course there are the tips they receive from the large corporate interests (campaign contributions) that they use for things such as $400 haircuts (newt got caught at that too). There are also the K street wine and dine events and such. Everyone knows how the “lobbyists” line the elected officials pockets. But that’s not all!

Her and her little hubby are worth MILLIONS!
bon bon has assets of $1 million to $5 million in the retirement plan of a plastics company he previously headed.
There are the book deals and the big money paid them to speak at dysfunctions. The are $90,000 bundles of cash found in home freezers. Hell, these people take in so much damn money from so many sources, it’s really impossible to know just how much they have or from whom it comes.
This in a country where the minimum wage is $5.15 an hour! This in a country where 47 million citizens don’t have health insurance! This in a country where we are constantly told “we don’t have money in the budget for…” anything that would make our lives better. THIS IN A COUNTRY WHERE REAL WAGES HAVE BEEN DROPPING FOR DECADES! WTF!?
Resolved: the pay and perks handed out to the useless dogs in washingtOOn is nothing more then government and corporate waste, fraud and abuse!
The telepathic crickets are out trying to convince my buddy Alex (see my earlier post: WTF!? Off The pigs) to put a pool in his backyard. They love to swim them crickets.
The scientifically impossible I do right away
