    Czar to substantially cut pay: Summers

    Czar to substantially cut pay: Summers

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Top White House economic adviser Lawrence Summers said on Wednesday the administration's pay czar will "substantially reduce" the paychecks at firms that have received billions of taxpayer dollars.

    It's official we now live in a fascist corporatist state where school children are forced to sing the praises of Il Duce, the 4th estate is a branch of the white house press office, all dissenters are punished or preemptively threatened, and the state runs private enterprise through unelected, unratified czars.

    **** you Obama you fascist POS.

    I contend that Czars have no standing or power outlined in the Constitution and if they are allowed to dictate rules and regulations our Constitution becaomes no better than the Weimar Republic's constitution of 1919 when the Nazi government took measures in February & March of 1933 known at the time as Gleichschaltung (a synonym is distribution) or as Obama says redistribution. Those actions in 1933 which are very much like those we are seeing today effectively ended their Constitution as Obama is working to end ours today. They have no right under the Constitution to TAKE OVER OR DICTATE to business. Business and the people need to say no to Obama's dictates before he takes over more of our countries economy and businesses.
    You don't see it you say. Then read the history and look at what Obama is doing and compare it to that and other history and even the events that have taken place under the rule of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.
    It's not a stretch or a conspiracy when you can read and compare and see the parallels clearly.
    I believe all real patriotic Americans want the same for our Nation and our children but Obama does not believe in those values or goals this dictator like action is a prime example that he does not share our dreams, or those of our founders.

    There is no standing in the Constitution to hand businesses Billions of dollars to keep them from going under either.
    From the ashes.

    Re: Czar to substantially cut pay: Summers

    Obama will cut pay by almost 50% for a whopping 25 people at each company. That will certainly have a huge effect on the thousands of people at each of these companies who will take home the exact same salary as they would otherwise.

    He's just doing this **** for show. It's embarrassing,
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I don;'t think that word "fascist" means what you think it does. You sure do like throwing it around though.

    Why? Because he's a bad manager? Makes too much money and you you hate people who make money? Why, in this the freest country in the world, should he be run out of town on a rail?

    Please explain.

    I seem to remember some of those companies being forced to take the money, or not being allowed to give the money back when they found out about all the strings attached. Am I remembering wrong?
