Stop the Ride Want to Get Off – Partisan Politics are Making Me Sick!

by Gary Goldman

Is it just me or do you feel like you are on that never-ending Ferris wheel at the local amusement park? Around and around we go and where and when we stop nobody knows. Whether you are trying to manage your day-to-day activities, your household, or your business the degree of frustration caused by the actions of government leaders on a levels is overwhelming. Both political parties are guilty of coning the American people.

How can so many elected officials be so clueless? The uncertainty that is caused by their lack of courage to address the issues that are affecting us on a daily basis amounts to pure negligence. Every step that our political leaders take, every breath that they inhale, and every decision that they make is calculated on the basis of political gains and losses. Their constituents have become second nature.

We need to get away from this feeling that there is no solution to the problems that face this great country. We cannot continue to allow our political leaders to evaluate every issue based on partisan politics. Every time that it looks like a certain problem or issue is being resolved, our political leaders add some foolish resolution to a bill that derails the entire process. Many of the laws, and executive orders, that are being enacted today are stealing this country right from under our feet. We the people have allowed them this power by not fighting back.

No one ever assumed that either side would agree on all of the issues. Dialog and debate are honest and healthy ways to resolve our difference. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could stop identifying every issue as Democrat or Republican, Liberal or Conservative, and start evaluating issues based on the facts?

Issue based politics that would look at a proposed bill based on how it affects you and I as opposed to how it will advance ones political career. I know most of you are probably assuming that I have lost my mind and that this type of behavior can never be accomplished. That is exactly what our political leaders want you to think.

They want us to surrender our rights and powers over to them. They know what is best for us! Well I say the time has come to let them know that “We the People” are not going to take it anymore and their actions have to represent our wishes.

We cannot be afraid to lose, in the short-term, if we want to win in the long run. We have to stop doing the same things over and over that have gotten us into this predicament. Our votes do count and it is time for us to take America back to the people. Democrat, Republican, or Independent voters have to start doing what is right for the country as a whole.

What a difference a day makes.

24 hours ago being only 32% toward a full paycheck was no big deal. We had our best ever January for traffic and the monthly goal was made with some to spare.

Today it’s February, a whole new Mortgage payment now looms, a whole new month of Magnificent Seven pieces need to be paid for and in 25 days $800+ in CPAC travel & Hotel bills will show up on the credit card.

So it’s once again time to start worrying if DaPaycheck is short a bit.

It will take $234.50 to make this week’s paycheck That’s just under 10 $25 tip jar hits in under 24 hours.

It’s possible but only if you hit DaTipJar below.

If 55 3/4 of you choose to subscribe @ at $20 a month then that problem will be solved on a more permanent basis.

Does The Postal Workers Union Need To “Staple” It Shut?

Does a union whose rank and file is employed by a quasi-government agency, funded by taxpayer money that is losing billions of dollars per year, have the right to object to innovative solutions that may help ease the financial hemorrhaging .

This is also the same agency that missed the opportunity to dominate Next Day mail Service.

The postal workers union is shifting focus from the real issue – losing billions of dollars; to staple employees who will not be earning a union wage, and the loss of union jobs.

News flash to the Postal Workers Union; if the bleeding is not stopped, jobs will be lost, and services will be cut. The USPS has also lost a considerable amount of its market share to emails, stamps on line, and doing business via the internet.

The postal Workers union is not in a position of power. When you have employees that have customer service sensitivity, and an agency that is making money, then you may have the right to question change. Right now, that is not the case.

I can assure you that when you walk into a Staples store to conduct USPS business, you will be greeted by smiling employees, that acknowledge your existence, that are happy to assist you, and appreciate your business

Time has proven that there is no parity between high union wages, well run business’s, and friendly service. The postal workers union needs to embrace the change and see what will evolve. It is ultimately the consumer – tax payer that will decide if this private -public partnership is working. The massive losses and operational inefficiencies cannot continue indefinitely.

If I were a postal worker with managerial and supervisory skills, I just may consider sending my resume over to staples. You never know what opportunities are around the corner. Just ask those fed ex employees who had the vision to look outside the box.
