PS To My Last Post

My last post pointed out that people with business experience and especially those from the private sector are the most capable of dealing with economic situations like the one we are in now.

I just got this email, which I'll just cut and paste, as follows:

Did you happen to catch Glenn Beck's show a couple days ago? He had a graph up that showed past presidents and the percentage of each president's cabinet appointees who had previously worked in the private sector. You know a real life business, not a government job? Remember what that is? A private business???

*Roosevelt - 38%*
*Taft - 40%*
*Wilson - 52%*
*Harding - 49%*
*Coolidge - 48%*
*Hoover - 42%*
*FDR - 50%*
*Truman - 50%*
*Eisenhower - 57%*
*Kennedy - 30%*
*LBJ - 47%*
*Nixon - 53%*
*Ford - 42%*
*Carter - 32%*
*Reagan - 56%*
*GHWB - 51%*
*Clinton - 39%*
*GWB - 55%*

*And the Winner
of the Chicken Dinner is.........................*








*Obama - 8%*

*YEP, EIGHT PERCENT!!!!!!!!!!!! And these are the guys holding a "job summit" this week? This ought to go really well!!!! I'm gonna go out on a limb here, I know, but I'm gonna go ahead and predict........ WE'RE SCREWED!!!!!

Me again. Well, we're screwed at least for another year and possibly 3, depending on how 2010 candidates and voting go.


  1. Yep, trickle down economics, some people can't seem to understand that when rich people spent money, how it feeds several families.
    Starting businesses, expanding a operation in progress. Making a profit, means more spendable cash- the rich woman buys a dress or hand bag from the neighborhood boutique, which employs the critics niece or cousin or some friend(s) child's first job. Or the owner is able to make a profit, and spend it on a good meal at a local restaurant-tips for the wait staff. Trickle down economics goes right over some lame brains heads.

  2. P.S. Think they have a head for keeping their ears apart?

  3. The attendees at the "Jobs Summit" were the likes of Andy Stern, the UAW and the AFL-CIO... I liken that to inviting Dr. Jack Kevorkian to a summit on aging...

    Merry Christmas to you and all your readers...

  4. May the Peace, Love, and saving Grace of our risen savior Jesus Christ be visited upon you now and always. Merry Christmas!

  5. They Say, yes, there are things much less complicated than that go whizzing by.

    I don't know how they keep their ears apart. Government subsidies is my guess.

    Maybe we should start calling it Givernment now.

  6. They Say, And a most enjoyable Christmas to you sir !

  7. Born Again, Yep. Quite the parasitic group there.

    They've choked the auto industry out of business, now they've got their eyes on the rest of free enterprise.

    What happens when they put everyone out of business..

  8. Arby, Me niether !

    And to you sir. Have a blessed Christmas !

  9. Born again, missed ya. Merry Christmas.

  10. Opus, Thanks.

    HO HO HO Gene, Merry Christmas!

  11. That is really sad, I knew they were clueless parasites, but this bad! EKK!
    Well, anyway. Let's forget this for a while and I want to wish you HAPPY CHRISTMAS! Kid, to you, your lovely wife and cute pets, and all your family.
    God Bless, Bunni

  12. Bunni, all the same back to you and your warm abode in Chicago.

    The next post is for your enjoyment.

  13. This chart is incorrect. I did some research and found the actual article that contained the original chart:

    According to the original chart, the percentage of Obama cabinet appointees with private sector experience is just over 20%.

    According to, the percentage is even higher. They contacted the CIO who conducted the study and he admitted that any effort to address the topic of private sector experience is heavily subjective.

    No matter how one views the data, I hope we can all agree that whoever started the mass email of the chart changed the data (reducing Obama's cabinet w/ private sector experience by over 50%). Also, Beck didn't bother to do any research. If he did, he would have realized this error.

  14. Malcolm, thanks for stopping by. Well, the Forbes chart could also be considered subjective, but let's go ahead and say 20% is the right number.

    The devil is always in the details, and in this vein, let's ask where this 20% of individuals has been placed. My opinion would be "Not in the right places".

    For example, one of the more serious problems in the country is unemployment. The Auto Industry is at the center of that along with the financial and retail sectors. The Car Czar couldn't pick his own butt from a muffler in a line-up. Is that a wise choice for this position.

    obama is currently putting the screws to the financial industry as well as creating situations in financial entities that owe Tarp funds so as to drive away current management. That management will be replaced with lower quality management, probably lackeys form the government and those entities will have a harder time being successful.

    Or how about the DHS chief, yesterday telling us "The System Worked" in reference to the two attempted airline suicide bombings.

    What system ? The one where passengers save the day? Of course, she back pedaled today with some lameness that could only be attributable to the obama administration in the last 100 years or so.

    This list is so large and grotesque, that if my aim were to rag on obama and his administration, I would be literally filling my life with it, and don't choose to live like that.

    In addition, the people who really need an education regards the obama will only get one through a painful process known as reality. Therefore, my constant wailing in cyberspace would be of little benefit and as a result I post for my own delight.

    Thanks for the input though. I certainly considered the fact that 9% as stated in an email I received was probably not the real number, but as I explained above, it doesn't really matter anyway, because one only need look at the policy decisions on a day to day basis since Jan 22, 2009, and it's obvious this administration knows nothing about fueling an economic recovery, or has an appreciation for capitalism for that matter.

    In fact, it's purely obvious that their only interest is in filling their pockets and expanding their power base. In my opinion.

    Yea, Glen Beck does tend to go off half cocked sometimes.
