Letter to the Boss
All of you who are still working... imagine telling your boss the following:
I have enjoyed working here these past several years. You have paid me very well, given me benefits beyond belief. I have 3-4 months off per year and a pension plan that will pay my salary till the day I die and a health plan that most people can only dream about. Despite this, I plan to take the next 12-18 months to find a new position. During this time I will show up for work when it is convenient. In addition I fully expect to draw my full salary and all the other perks associated with my current job. Oh yeah, if my search for this new job proves fruitless, I will be back with no loss in pay or status. Before you say anything, remember that you have no choice in the matter. I can and will do this.
Every Senator or Congressman running for President.
Does this seem right to you? I think something is terribly wrong with this system. Our legislators have created a real gravy train with your money and mine. They are not called on to obey the same rules and regulations they have passed for the rest of us to follow. Where else can you work and become fully vested in a retirement system in four years? It is time for a change, but Barak Obama is not the answer. I'm swallowing some pride and voting for John McCain.
The more things change, the more they remain... insane. - Michael Fry and T. Lewis
