How To Retire

how-to-retire-03

Michael Stuban, a “mid-level” manager at the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, “retired” on Thanksgiving after a 35-year career that started in a “tollbooth.”

But before he left, Stuban filled out his “exit questionnaire” with what he described as “brutal” honesty. Let’s just say he didn’t give his bosses an “E-ZPass.”

Stuban blasted the “out of touch” executive-level managers who are “only looking out for themselves” and are running a “rudderless” agency that hires “incompetents” based on political connections.

Stuban, 58, wrote that he actually “liked” his job and didn’t “want” to retire yet, but that the last five years at the commission had been “terrible,” with “no morale” among workers.

“Giving us classes where we are being told we are not political. That’s bullshit. Jobs/Promotions are filled by the politicians, it’s who you know, not what you know. Positions created for people who are not qualified.”

That’s just “one” example. But it “gets” better.

Stuban, who “hails” from a small borough in Western Pennsylvania, sent the “email” not just to the HR department, but to “everyone” at the Turnpike Commission, more than “2,000 employees.”

Basically, the email equivalent of that scene in “Half Baked” where the guy “quits his job” at the burger joint.

“Want to get away? Southwest is offering great fares . . . “ one Turnpike Commission employee replied-all to Stuban’s email, “referencing” the airline’s commercials.

“Next up” was former State Sen. Sean Logan, chairman of the Turnpike Commission, who apparently didn’t find “any of this funny.”

He hit the reply-all button and wrote: “Mr. Stuban . . . I don’t believe we ever met, and after reading your Exit Questionnaire, I am grateful that we didn’t.”

We called Stuban at his “home” along the Ohio River in Beaver County. It sounded like he was “smiling” on the other end.

“When they asked for an honest exit interview, I gave them one,” Stuban said, chuckling occasionally. “I sent it minutes before I officially retired.”

how-to-retire-01

Stuban, who was an “interchange” manager at the commission, said his former colleagues told him about Logan’s “icy” reply.

“He did miss the point,” Stuban said. “If it was an effective company and someone told you there are problems and no morale, you don’t have to believe me, but maybe someone should check into it.”

One of the biggest “problems” at the agency, Stuban said, is “political” patronage. He said relatives of “powerful” people get hired “regardless” of their qualifications.

“They hire a lot of people that are dumb as rocks,” he said.

how-to-retire-04

We emailed Logan but didn’t “hear” back. As for Stuban, he sounds like he’ll be “just fine.” He plans to do some “traveling,” catch up on “projects” around the house and “volunteer” at his church.

“I’m staying active in the community,” he said.

how-to-retire-06

That’s how it’s “done” folks.

Rattle “everybody” on your way out and tell them how you “really” feel, let out all “frustration” you’ve had “pent up” for years and years.

Not good to “keep” it all inside, any therapist will tell you that. Way more “therapeutic” to tell your bosses how you “feel as you head off to your twilight years.”

Fürer Roger Goodell

Fuerer Goddell 01

From Tom Brady’s Facebook Page

I am very disappointed by the NFL’s decision to uphold the 4 game suspension against me. I did nothing wrong, and no one in the Patriots organization did either.

Despite submitting to hours of testimony over the past 6 months, it is disappointing that the Commissioner upheld my suspension based upon a standard that it was “probable” that I was “generally aware” of misconduct. The fact is that neither I, nor any equipment person, did anything of which we have been accused. He dismissed my hours of testimony and it is disappointing that he found it unreliable.

I also disagree with yesterdays narrative surrounding my cellphone. I replaced my broken Samsung phone with a new iPhone 6 AFTER my attorneys made it clear to the NFL that my actual phone device would not be subjected to investigation under ANY circumstances. As a member of a union, I was under no obligation to set a new precedent going forward, nor was I made aware at any time during Mr. Wells investigation, that failing to subject my cell phone to investigation would result in ANY discipline.

Most importantly, I have never written, texted, emailed to anybody at anytime, anything related to football air pressure before this issue was raised at the AFC Championship game in January. To suggest that I destroyed a phone to avoid giving the NFL information it requested is completely wrong.

To try and reconcile the record and fully cooperate with the investigation after I was disciplined in May, we turned over detailed pages of cell phone records and all of the emails that Mr. Wells requested. We even contacted the phone company to see if there was any possible way we could retrieve any/all of the actual text messages from my old phone. In short, we exhausted every possibility to give the NFL everything we could and offered to go thru the identity for every text and phone call during the relevant time.

Regardless, the NFL knows that Mr. Wells already had ALL relevant communications with Patriots personnel that either Mr. Wells saw or that I was questioned about in my appeal hearing. There is no “smoking gun” and this controversy is manufactured to distract from the fact they have zero evidence of wrongdoing.

I authorized the NFLPA to make a settlement offer to the NFL so that we could avoid going to court and put this inconsequential issue behind us as we move forward into this season. The discipline was upheld without any counter offer. I respect the Commissioners authority, but he also has to respect the CBA and my rights as a private citizen. I will not allow my unfair discipline to become a precedent for other NFL players without a fight.

Lastly, I am overwhelmed and humbled by the support of family, friends and our fans who have supported me since the false accusations were made after the AFC Championship game. I look forward to the opportunity to resume playing with my teammates and winning more games for the New England Patriots.

Fuerer Goddell 02

Forget the fact that Brady “offered” to give Goodell all the deleted phone records and communications. It’s irrelevant because Goodell “already” had them.

There is no smoking “gun” because there never was a “smoking” gun. If Brady “texted” with the equipment guys about “deflating” footballs then Goodell would have seen it because Goodell “had their phones.”

By the NFL’s logic they “suspended” Brady for not giving them the information they already had “access” to and showed nothing.

Bottom line, this is just a “smear” campaign by the NFL from Day 1. They were never able to find one “shred” of evidence that “proved” Tom Brady was guilty. Their stance was essentially “admit you did it or else we’ll punish you like you did it anyway.”

Fürer Roger Goodell is “liar and a crook” and the fact that people suddenly think he’s telling the “truth” or being “honest” here after the way he’s handled “Ray Rice, Bounty Gate and Adrian Peterson” is surreal.

Goodell has a long and storied history of “deceit and corruption” and somehow people are giving him the “benefit of the doubt” even though he doesn’t have a “leg to stand on.”

This is simply about the rest of the country “hating” the Patriots so much that they are willing to turn a “blind” eye to the truth. That’s it. They can’t “beat” them on the field so they’ve “resorted” to this shenanigan.

Sad day for America indeed. I can’t “wait” for Donald Trump to “weigh” in here. You know he’s gonna go “all in on Goodell.”

Trump Blasts NFL Commissioner, Calls Deflategate A Disgrace

Another Brazil

Another Brazil 04

Marcel Van Hattem: “I don’t want to live in another country; I want to live in another Brazil!”

What is “going” on in Brazil? Many people abroad are now asking this question, after years of a “continuous and false” marketing campaign claiming that Brazil was an “emerging economy, a BRIC, a prosperous and democratic country.”

Another Brazil 01

I lived abroad, in the US, the Netherlands and Denmark, and I had to “see, hear or read” constantly in the foreign media that Brazil was a “booming” economy, mainly because our federal government said so.

Such a lie!

Now, people are out on the streets protesting. Our economy is “ruined, corruption is rampant and a severe moral and political crisis” is threatening our young democracy.

Another Brazil 03

The ruler’s party, PT, is allied to “communists and populists” around the continent, such as Cuban Fidel Castro, Venezuelan Hugo Chávez and Bolivian Evo Morales, as well as to “terrorists” such as Colombian FARCS.

So, what is going on in Brazil? If you want to “know” what are we talking about when it is said that we live in a “deep political, economic and moral crisis,” watch this video to which I added subtitles in English so you can forward it to your friends around the globe.

It was my “inauguration” speech as state representative in the State Parliament of Rio Grande do Sul, given on February 10th.

I hope you then understand why we, Brazilians, do not want to live in another “country.” We want to live in “another” Brazil.

A prosperous, democratic and FREE Brazil!

Marcel was “discerning” a run for his state legislature. His chances were “slim,” but through a huge amount of effort in a “principled” campaign, he won by a “narrow” margin.

While “core” effort should be to change the “culture,” not politics, our ideas and decisions have “consequences” in the real world, and a transformed culture will “energize” good leaders, like Marcel, to discover their “vocation” in the political realm and to use their “talents” to expand individual freedom.

Another Brazil 05

Sadly, the “same” cannot be said about “American” politicians.

After watching this video, I hope you will be “inspired” to share this video with your friends. It is an urgent “moment” in our culture, and you can “make a difference” next time you are “heading” to the polls.

Another Brazil 07

Because I, too, don’t want to live in “another” country; I want to live in a “free and prosperous” America.

Climate of Corruption

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , on February 26, 2014 by andelino

Red book.“Melting glaciers, suffering polar bears, rising oceans, global warming/cooling, floods, torrential rains, droughts, wildfires, dust bowls” these are just a few of the climate change crisis myths” debunked by noted aerospace expert Larry Bell in his “explosive” new book.

With “meticulous” research, Bell “deflates” these and other climate “misconceptions” with perceptive analysis, humor, and the most recent “scientific” data.

Written for the “layman,” yet in-depth enough for the “specialist,” this book digs deep into the “natural and political” aspects of the climate change “debate,” answering fundamental questions that reveal the “all-too-human” origins of “scientific” inquiry.

Why and how are some of the world’s most prestigious scientific institutions cashing in on the debate? Who stands to benefit most by promoting public climate change alarmism? What true political and financial purposes are served by the vilification of carbon dioxide? How do climate deceptions promote grossly exaggerated claims for non-fossil alternative energy capacities and advance blatant global wealth redistribution goals?

With its “devastating” portrayal of scientific and government establishments “run amok,” this book is an “invaluable” addition to the tremendously “popular literature” attacking the “scientific status quo.”

“Climate of Corruption” will bring welcome “relief” to all those who are “fed up” with climate “crisis insanity.”

I am a endowed professor at the University of Houston where I founded and direct the “Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture” and head the graduate program in space architecture.

My background deals extensively with “research, planning and design of habitats, structures and other support systems for applications in space and extreme environments on Earth.”

I have recently written a new book titled “Climate of Corruption: Politics and Power Behind the Global Warming Hoax”. It can be previewed and ordered at http://www.climateofcorruption.com

Not a smidgen 04

“Smidgen” is my new favorite word.

What a most “glorious” word President Barack Obama has brought into the “mainstream” of the American lexicon.

With this “tiny” word one can avert “truth” and can simply “disregard” any and all “facts and details” by simply “claiming” said facts and details to be less than “smidgen.”

White House Corruption

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on January 11, 2013 by andelino
General William Shelton

General William Shelton

“If an Air Force general blows the whistle on the Obama White House, does anyone in the media hear the corruption?”

A United States Air Force general is blowing the “whistle” on another alleged White House “scandal,” but few in the news media seem to be “listening.”

According to General William Shelton, the commanding officer of U.S. Air Force’s space command, he was told to “alter his testimony” before the House of Representatives’ Subcommittee on Strategic Forces regarding an Obama White House “attempt” to award a “defense contract” to the Lightsquared firm.

Lightsquared

Lightsquared

Lightsquared is a high-tech company doing business in Virginia that’s owned by billionaire Philip Falcone, an Obama “friend and campaign contributor.”

According to the National Legal and Policy Center, Phil Falcone had visited the White House and made large “cash” contributions to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Soon after, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted his LightSquared a highly “unusual” waiver that allows the company to build out a “national” 4G wireless network on the cheap.

Republican lawmakers say that after Falcon’s visit, the Obama White House “allegedly” tried to push through a Lightsquared’s proposed “wireless network” regardless of the “objections” emanating from military commanders who “believed” the project could disrupt key “U.S. satellite systems.”

At a hearing on Thursday, lawmakers on strategic forces subcommittee, especially the Republican chairman, Michael Turner, requested that the House Oversight Committee “investigate” if Falcone’s company garnered any type of “special treatment” from the White House or from Obama appointees.

The hearing came after a report by a blogger on a news and commentary web site “alleged” that the Obama White House pressed General Shelton to “downplay” his concerns about the “proposed” Lightsquared system.

“Under extremely unusual circumstances, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently granted a company called LightSquared the right to use wireless spectrum to build out a national 4G wireless network. LightSquared will get the spectrum for a song, while its competitors have to spend billions,” according to NLPC’s Ken Boehm.

President Obama’s underlings deny any “wrongdoing,” and officials at Lightsquared denied the charges that it is receiving “preferential treatment” from President Obama or his staff.

Republican staff members on the subcommittee say that the decorated General Shelton told the lawmakers that Obama administration officials “urged” the general to describe Lightsquared’s system “favorably” during his congressional testimony.

During the hearing, General Shelton told committee members that the “wireless broadband network” manufactured by Lightsquared would have a “negative” impact on the current “Global Positioning System” (GPS) relied on by both the U.S. military and private sector users of the GPS.

General Shelton told the committee members: Tests with Defense Department experts, civilian agencies and others “indicate the LightSquared terrestrial network operating in the originally proposed manner poses significant challenges for almost all GPS users.”

The general insisted through his spokesperson on Friday that he had not “watered down his testimony due to alleged White House pressure.”

According to a source familiar with the Lightsquared probe, many officers at the Pentagon are “highly suspicious of the President, the White House staff and even Obama’s appointees at the Defense Department.”

US‑FCC‑SealAnother “occurrence” being probed is that the “allegation” that Lightsquared at first offered to sell “satellite phones” on its network, however the Federal Communications Commission allegedly issued a “special waiver” to the firm thus allowing sell “terrestrial-based” wireless service to other companies.

Department of Defense officials. such as General Shelton, in the past have raised “concerns” about interference with GPS users, and the FCC would then promise to “disallow” a firm to begin operating their network until after “intense testing” is carried out to ensure there is no “disruption” to satellite navigation.

The head of the FCC declined to “appear” before the committee on Thursday, which the chairman, Turner, called an “affront” to the panel.

Philip Falcone

Meanwhile, Falcone and Lightsquared executives are taking the “offensive” by giving Obama-friendly journalists at Politico “exclusive” interviews.

LightSquared CEO. Sanjiv Ahuja, and its billionaire backer, Phil Falcone, “denied” all allegations that the wireless company used its “political pull” with the Obama administration to secure approval of its “business plans” with the Defense Department.

“It’s just very disappointing that people are not seeing the facts here, and [that] this has become a real political issue,” Falcone, a senior executive at the hedge fund firm Harbinger Capital, said during his Politico interview.

“It’s not a function of being a Democrat or a Republican, it’s about trying to be an innovator. … It’s very disappointing and frustrating that we are getting stonewalled like this. … I kinda scratch my head every single day and say I can’t believe this is happening.”

Falcone and Ahuja denied receiving special treatment from the White House or the FCC in their ongoing quest to become the nation’s first wholesale wireless broadband provider, according to Politico.

But some observers see things differently. Mike Baker, a political strategist and a former military officer, believes that this investigation needs to be taken to wherever or whomever it leads. He’s like to see a special prosecutor appointed.

Valerie Plame Wilson

“This is a very important national security issue, not some politically-motivated witch hunt like the Valerie Plame-CIA case. But we all know that with the news media protecting this president, the chances of anything being done are slim or none,” he quipped.

“First of all, we know what motivates politicians and big business. In the middle you have a career officer who is a four-star general. Whom would you believe? What’s in it for General Shelton to make up stories?” Baker asks.

“Let’s hope General Shelton sticks to his guns and that more Pentagon and Justice Department officials decide enough is enough from this administration,” Baker added.
