I am a cop you moron! I never write a ticket unless the driver of the vehicle speeds at 15 MPH or more. I prefer if I have to write a citation that they are speeding at 20MPH or more. Then I, wheil doing my job are more than justifed in handing out the CITE! If you have a problem with me and my fellow borthers and sisters working in Law Enforcement, then may, just maybe you should come and do my job for a day. Then you could put up with your own BS all day long! So here is to your Ponzi scheme; You Moron!

The Ponzi is running out of money.....pretty soon COPS will be contributing half their salaries to pensions just to keep the game going.....already San Jose is at 45%.

If we are not funding our pensions.....there will be no place to get more money to pay our politicians and corporate executives.....who do you think the bankers sell all that toxic debt to?????????????

Cops get used everyday. By their employers. The Military is also. No surprises here.

I've been a martial artist for over 40 years. Trained and been friends with many policemen and soldiers. My son is currently in Iraq, Navy EOD. That doesn't mean that my son and I can't see the truth, we just realize that there are things we don't control and the little bit of control we do have is to do our jobs well.

If you don't agree with alstry, I understand. He does have the right to say what he wants. I appreciate much of what he says because there are problems building in our economy.

I also appreciate what you are saying. And your right to say it. Feel free to express your self SUPERMANSTOCKS.

You have a stressful job. I am concerned that this post, written on a site that is dedicated to Educate, Amuse, and Enrich has made you so upset. Please don't be upset, I don't believe that alstry was attacking the police or using them in a ploy. You are better than this I am sure.

Isn't it nice that we can all talk together SUPERMANSTOCKS? I'm sure we'll talk again. I'd be interested to hear your views about the economy too!

law enforcement (for profit industry), you get no sympathy from this side, overpaid, underworked, overstaffed, over equipped, over respected, all the way from local to county, state, and federal levels.  Keep cutting another 50% in staff and pay and benefits.

A RECOVERY WE CAN ALL BELIEVE IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

St. Rose cited the economic downturn in announcing the restructuring and layoffs.

“Many in our communities now lack insurance, are postponing elective procedures and are even unable to afford basic care,’’ Rod Davis, president/CEO of St. Rose Dominican Hospitals, said in a statement “In addition, the state has reduced or eliminated access to reimbursement sources for the indigent such as the Indigent Accident Fund, Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) fund and Medicaid.”

I agree with the general thesis of this blog post.

I also think the police reference could be mistaken by some. I believe that the author's point is that the government's fiscal mismanagement has a negative impact on how government chooses to spend the tax money.

The government as a whole is consuming a growing portion of the country's GDP and accruing huge debt obligations for the next generation. The rich are being taxed directly via higher tax rates and the poor are being taxed indirectly via unavailable promotions, underemployment or unemployment.

Oh I'm used alright! When your wife is beating your rear end or the hubby can't stop beating on the kids. I'm used. By the way I make 10.00 an hour and 1% of what I get paid goes into PERS. I have no benefits and I am the only guy on in my Village during my shift. Did  I ask for sympathy? No, and I never will. So when you have a problem just give me a call. I will come and clean up your mess and or the mess no one else will clean up. And yes the reference can be mistaken. I know I did at first.

So...... what are you going to do about that? What do you think is the next step for you SUPERMANSTOCKS?

Do you see things getting better in the economy? What changes will you find in your work? What investments would you make in real life? I reccomend IRBT (iRobot) the company that makes the Roomba, and the military robot Tacbot and the Talon. YTD up over 250%.

"The time to invest is when there is blood in the streets." So easy to say when you are not cleaning up the streets. Dealing with the worst of society everyday takes a toll on you.

Now as far as the econmy getting better. It is slowly, around here its mostly the kids that cause the problems. But don't get me wrong the adults are always drunk or High on crack lreaving the 11 yr old daughter at home for the BF to take care of. That is my world. Some days are good and nothing happens. Those days are my favorite ones. Also, I interviewed for a job almost 2 weeks ago and so far it looks promising.


By the way IRBT looks promising. I like MELI better. Also, AWC if you like a little risk.
