Barack Obama has been whining incessantly about the Buffett Rule. He wants millionaires and billionaires, who have already been repeatedly taxed and who are risking their wealth with investments that help this nation, play more in taxes. In fact, he wants everyone to pay more in taxes.
We have a poster boy for Obama’s call for more taxes.
Who is it?
It is Jeffrey Neely.
You have probably never heard of Jeffrey Neely but he was the head of the San Francisco office of the General Services Administration. He thought the government was his personal piggy bank and he had the constitutional right to take all kind of lavish trips, paid for by we the people.
He took his wife on a trip to Hawaii, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands as a birthday present. Gee, I’d like to give my wife birthday presents I don’t have to pay for.
In an email, his wife said, “It’s yo birfday … We gonna pawty like iz yo birfday!”
Wow. There is nothing like partying on the taxpayers’ dime. I’m sure some of the 88 million Americans who are out of the work force and are wondering how they are going to make it appreciate that. I’m sure some of the million or so people that have lost their homes in the Great Obama Depression are thrilled he could party with his wife, on his birthday, with the taxpayers paying.
Neely did not just travel to Hawaii. He travelled all over the place. Even when he was being investigated, he received a bonus for his work. You cannot make this stuff up. Only in Obama’s government is this the norm.
Neely was arrogant in his abuse of the American taxpayer. At one point he wrote to a friend, "I know. I am bad but Deb [presumably this is his wife] and I say often, why not enjoy it while we have it and while we can. Aint going to last forever."
Really? Enjoy it while you can?
How many Americans are out on the streets because of the Great Obama Depression? Hey Jeff, you think they are enjoying it?
And why should any American be asked to pay any more in taxes? This is where our tax dollars are going. We have waste, fraud and abuse as the norm now in government spending.
Neely is not alone. Last year, the General Accounting Office reported on hundreds of billions on dollars in waste and fraud in government spending. None of that has been dealt with. None of it has been cut.
In the last year, John Boehner hauled up his freshly laundered white flag of surrender and spending went up 3% over what it had been when Nancy Pelosi was the Speaker.
Meanwhile, as Obama demands the rich, which is anyone with a job and a bank account, to pay more in taxes, we need to fire back at the Party of Treason.
This is your tax dollars at work.
This is what happens when the Government gets to large and too powerful. Royalty lives like Kings and Queens, people starve.
Amerca, time to wake up and rise up.
Thumbs UP! If any two people could be resurrected upon a whim.....I'd Choose the Duke and Ronnie Regan. Their first collective choice would be the big oak to throw the rope over for a hangin'..........
What a kicker!!!! I'd like to have a birthday present. Not only like that but one at all. We live on fixed incomes and we don't always make it. We do without the things we NEED, not the things we want or the things we dream of, NO the things we NEED!!!!!!! It's very hard and to see and hear things like this makes my blood boil. I love my country and would do all I could to save her, these people don't love this country they love to use people and their things to make their life better, they say to hell with anyone else. Sad and sickening!!!!!!
WE THE GOV'T HV THE RIGHT TO TAX AND SPEND AT WILL, this is the UNFORTUNATE ATTITUDE WE ARE DEALING WITH. JEFF try working at Mc DONALDS and see if U can go to HI. I think not. JEFF UR FIRED per we the people. ur boss obummer does the same HIGH ON THE HOG on our hard earned dime. FAIR IS FAIR. FIRE THE PARTY OF TREASON and their pundits. DUMP THE GSA, DOE, DEPT. OF ENERGY and other pork barrel,ear mark agency's we do not need. that is at least 2 trillion saved right there . JEFF NEELY take a hike. and we don't mean to HI. EITHER.
SOME OF THEM HV A CREDIT CARD WITH NO LIMIT, REVOKE THOSE CARDS PSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. it's called a GOV'T BUSINESS EXPENSE ACCOUNT. "UNLIMITED".
My Fiancee works for the IRS and has one of these cards....it is VERY limited and the threat of termination looms over its use without any approval. Not all are in the unlimited category.....only those who will kneel at the alter of Obama and pucker up long enough for Barack to lean over and plant his butt on their lips.
Companies where I work, the Program Managers are all giver credit cards. I pulled one of the cards and witnessed personal spending on government contracts. I brought this up to the Controller. He told me to mind my own business. I saw Managers staying at $300 Hotels when there were FAR budget of $100. Not to worry, all was charged to government contracts. When I went to the Accounting Manager, she stated that they have been doing this for 20 years, no one says a word, so its ok to charge direct to contracts. I quoted FAR, that this cost in not allowable. She gave me a blank stare, ordered me out of her office. When I went to the CFO, two weeks later, I got my layoff notice. I went to the goverment for help. They told me Im on my own and good luck.
I hear ya Barry.......that card my wife was granted by the IRS sits in the fire safe at home not ever used once....still has the activation sticker on it......all these years now......
Its good to know we have honest people working in government. I have been unlucky, working with many criminals who believe that a government credit card is their personal credit card to spend at will. So many auditors I know cant say a word when their CEO mischarges. This also goes on in commercial industries where the boss gives you an credit card charge or a travelers expense report, you pay for it and give him money back. I would not allow mischarging on my programs. I reported it, then paid the price. You ask one question, your terminated.
The idea....the image of Jeff Neely sitting there in that tub with that smug little smile on his face..........Sam Kineson said it best......"I know what turns Mr hand into Mr FIST!!!!!!" Fire him? Not good enough for him, ladies and gentlemen, not good enough. I suggest a nice long rope with the end tied neatly in 13 little knots. This man is a PIG and deserves to be dealt with as such.
ON ONE HAND we have a neighborhood watch member under scrutiny for the shooting of an alleged "young man" and here we have a PIG who with no shame and blatantly flaunting abuse of tax-payer money not being dragged off to the gallows? Something doesn't sit well with me there..........
Who will fire him? His boss does the same thing, and her boss on and on.
You have criminals running the show since 2008. Do you think the head criminal is going to hold others accountable?
One protects the other. Look at Congress, they protect eachother from accountability.
Now lets Barbara Boxer fix this, the major contributor of overspending, not caring about governments money.
That is like having a Judge with a drinking problem hearing a case about the person who has a drinking problem.
She will protect the overspender since she is one.
When will the American taxpayer rise up and throw them out. Then let them pay back all the money they have wasted.
Now, they get pensions so why should they care. No one holds them accountable so why should they care.
This arrogant fraud is on adminstrative leave with pay, another free vacation on taxpayers dime.
Get me a job where I can party on government money, then, when cost, give me adminstrative pay to pay for another vacation. This is a reward.
