Smithsonian Honey Pot

And YOU PAID FOR IT, American taxpayers!

You are PAYING FOR IT ALL while YOU are getting SCREWED!!!

One wonders: does the GOVERNMENT LOOTING NEVER END?!?

"Smithsonian to cut its executives' pay" by Brett Zongker, Associated Press | August 30, 2008

WASHINGTON - At least 17 Smithsonian Institution executives with six-figure salaries will see future pay cuts - many in the tens of thousands of dollars - under reforms adopted by the museum complex.

According to figures released recently by the Smithsonian Institution, the chief financial officer could see the biggest reduction. If the cuts planned for five years from now were made today, CFO Alice Maroni could lose as much as $120,000, or 41 percent of her base salary of $293,280. Others could see reductions of more than $80,000 a year.

Isn't that a BIT MUCH?!?!

Nonprofit watchdogs and members of Congress have been questioning salaries at the Smithsonian since former Secretary Lawrence Small's compensation grew to nearly $916,000 for 2007. Small resigned in March 2007 when it was revealed he was also charging the Smithsonian for housekeeping and repairs to his home swimming pool, among other expenses.

Yup, we got TRILLIONS for WARS, and BILLIONS for BANKS and ISRAEL, and THOUSANDS if not MILLIONS for GOVERNMENT LOOTERS, but NOTHING for the American people!!!!

How much longer are you going to put up with this band of criminals, thugs and thieves, America? How much LONGER?!

The Smithsonian will wait five years to reduce the 17 executives' salaries to blunt the impact and prevent a mass exodus.


And THEY NEVER SEEM to worry about the impact of BUDGET REDUCTIONS and CUTS when it comes to the AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!!!

Yeah, I AM FUMING and FURIOUS, readers, how can you tell?

The jobs were targeted because they were similar to federal government positions that pay less. The federal government caps salaries for similar jobs at $158,500. When the Smithsonian looked at its books, it found 17 of 38 executives' salaries were over the cap.

It's called LOOTING!!!!!

It's difficult to say exactly how much the executives will lose in 2013 because the federal salary cap will probably be higher then.


Isn't it nice that government gets a raise while you suffer out here, Americans?

When the hell are you going to get your heads out of that bowl of shit, America?
