i don't allow it to affect me. If it bothers people then in cojunction to posting about it on here do something about it if it bothers you and affects you.

I live a great life an only worrry about me me and me. what others make public servants or not. I DONT CARE. Like i said their pay checks do not pay my bills nor do i have to claim them.


THe problem with SOME people is they allow stuff like this to AFFECT them but do nothing about it an just complain and banter.

you have listed the CEO exec people of government mostly fire dept.
r u assuming all civil servants make that kind of money?
cops and firemen yes, managers yes. is it too much?
well depends on what u have them doing. i would say u could subcontract them to do this job when u need them and save a mountain of money.
rest of the time use elmer fud GS 3 to push paper.

You be the judge. You do know that people that are generally scumbags can do a good deed once in a while. That doesn't change the overall picture. This article will pretty much make anyone who is not a government minion sick.

"Article number two was about those highly paid Las Vegas firefighters. It turns out they weren’t satisfied with making almost $200,000 per year. They also abused sick leave, rigged work schedules to pump up their pensions, and appear to have engaged in widespread disability fraud (Firefighters gamed the system -- again - Opinion - ReviewJournal.com). Do you understand this kind of abuse is going on across America?"

Glad to read this.. becuase if this is really a problem DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT instead of just posting about it. I dont mean that in a rude way. its just that some Americans dont like something will banter about it but they dont do anything to change it. all they do is complain

When i dont like something thing I do something about it I dont just come to boards and complain about it. Maybe you should get a petition or better yet apply for one of their job an under stand why they get that salary.


Firemen and LE put their life on the line for you an me everyday they go to work.

I am one of the USA slaves who does believe resistance is futile. You will never see me in a occupy wall street type event. I will agree with you that making your own life happy is more important, but I still will complain on things that I do not feel is right.

Well the first step is to bring it to people's attention and then do something about it. For instance the county appraiser who appraised my house and 754 others made 97,000. I'm sorry but that is excessive. People who are defending Public workers please supply specific data to back up your views.
