Intrinsic Injustices In Obama's America -- The Unstable Society

At a time when workers' pay and benefits have stagnated, federal employees' average compensation has grown to more than double what private sector workers earn, a USA TODAY analysis finds.
Federal workers have been awarded bigger average pay and benefit increases than private employees for nine years in a row. The compensation gap between federal and private workers has doubled in the past decade.

Federal civil servants earned average pay and benefits of $123,049 in 2009 while private workers made $61,051 in total compensation, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The data are the latest available.

The federal compensation advantage has grown from $30,415 in 2000 to $61,998 last year. _USAToday

Public sector workers are becoming the wealthy masters and tyrants at the expense of hard working and productive persons in the private sector. Working together as collaborative unions and associated groups, public sector factions use taxpayer dollars to support politicians who support their cause -- an ever stronger, larger, and better compensated public sector. Even if it kills the goose that once laid the golden eggs -- private markets.
"What do they produce besides deficits and debt?" asked Nicholas Bavaro, president of Bavaro Benefit Advisors in Modesto, when we talked to him. He's also a former member of the California Citizens Compensation Commission, a state panel that determines the salaries and benefits of California legislators and constitutional officers. "They don't produce any product that consumers purchase. They don't invest. They don't create jobs."

As to the "high level of skill and education" of the federal workers supposedly managing all that contracting-out, Mr. Bavaro responded, "There's no comparison" to private-sector managers, who "are at-will workers. If they don't produce, they're gone. They live by the standards of their company. You can't do that with federal, state or local government employees" because of union contracts that make it nearly impossible to fire them. "That's why we're in the mess we're in" with the national economy, he said. _OCRegister
Bonus chart from EscapeTyranny:
The Obama Pelosi regime generously gave another bailout to union supporters -- this time to teachers' unions. Public sector unions are well placed politically, in the increasingly impoverished and unstable Obama Pelosi world. Not only can these taxpayer supported groups campaign for and vote for politicians who will keep the corrupt scam in operation, they can also enlist the services of a large network of "community organisers" and quasi - organised crime auxiliaries to squelch and harass public assemblies of the opposition, while making sure through the use of force that opponents are unable to stage peaceful counter-demonstrations anywhere in the vicinity of public sector union rallies. If you doubt the reality of all of that, you are not paying attention.

Pension Tsunami is a website that carefully follows and documents this massive and growing injustice in Obama's America. As Obama Pelosi proceeds to provide generous payoffs to its supporters, the underlying economy of the US continues to shrink. Tax revenues continue to decline, even as munificent benefits to public employees continue to grow beyond logic or justification.

Public sector workers are the new royalty. Perhaps they should wear crowns and display identification decals prominently on their motor vehicles, lest any commoners show disrespect out of ignorance of their relative status. More: Pampered Public Employees

Remember that antiquated document, the US Constitution? Don't worry about it anymore. It's history. We are almost back to where we were before all of that nonsense started.

Why is this unstable? Mandarins in power always made more than lowly peons.

How true. Medieval China with its mandarins and eunuchs may be exactly the model on which to build the new US.

Think of it as the new normal.

The US may even survive long enough to reap the same rewards as medieval China reaped, when the outside realities of the world finally caught up to it.

Medieval anywhere over my dead body,
I'm not a fan of the dark ages. While the barbarian hordes did eventually get their act together and start organizing their society, look how long it took. How long will it take the barbarian hordes at our doors to get their act together and get back to where we left off?
