Liberal Women Weak And Meek

Liberal Women Weak And Meek –For those who have long believed that liberal “progressive” Democrat-voting women were not “strong and independent” but weak, stupid, and easily cowed hypocrites, well, it looks your instincts were right.

Premier Kathleen Wynne knows her place in Sharia it seems.

Kathleen Wynne is the premier of Ontario. She is a lesbian, ultra-liberal and an outspoken feminist. After a mass shooting at a Quebec City mosque on Jan. 29 that left six dead and 19 injured — how did that happen anyway, don’t they have gun control in Canada?? — she decided to show solidarity by visiting a mosque in Toronto.

So what happened? They made the province’s leading politician put on a head covering and sit on a rickety folding chair way back in a corner well behind the men. If a woman is in front of a man as he is praying, his prayer is invalidated, after all.

And of course, unlike a pro-life conservative woman, she meekly accepted.Liberal Women Weak And Meek

Oh, and the subject of the sermon was the evils of homosexuality.

She has yet to lead a demonstration against it.

Pension Crisis Can Be Solved

Pension Crisis Can Be Solved

By Leo Knepper

Most people have heard the term Ponzi scheme and have a vague sense that the victim of the scheme is getting ripped off. In an actual Ponzi scheme, early investors see a substantial return on their investment. What they don’t realize is that the money they are getting is money being put into the investment by new investors. The system continues working as long as enough new investors come in to pay the people who were there before them. The architect of the scheme, never admits that this is what is happening and eventually the system collapses.

As noted by Chris Comisac at Capitol Wire (paywall), the description of a Ponzi scheme and a description of the state pension system by House Minority Leader, Rep. Joe Markosek are remarkably similar. In a recent email Rep. Markosek said:

“If Pennsylvania decided that 18 blue moons from now it would no longer offer retirement benefits for teachers and state employees … And the commonwealth’s debt was still $65 billion … Taxpayers would still be ‘on the hook’ to pay that $65 billion. BUT … Teachers and state employees would no longer be contributing their share (something they’ve always done while policy officials haven’t, until this fiscal year) and it would take taxpayers even longer to pay down that bad pension puppy.”

In other words, money coming in now is paying the unfunded liability; without that new money, we wouldn’t be able to pay people who are about to retire. When Comisac followed up with Rep. Markosek’s staff, they were quick clarify the statement and make sure that everyone knew that the Representative didn’t mean it was a legalized Ponzi scheme.

It is worth looking at a longer excerpt from Comisac’s analysis to drive home exactly what is going on; the emphasis is CAP’s:

“However, the claim that closing the current defined benefit plan, either to completely eliminate the DB plan for new employees or replace it for new employees with something like a 401(k)…would bring about the collapse of the closed DB [defined benefit] plan is simply ridiculous.

“First, the systems are currently in a state of negative cash flow, meaning, just like Fox wrote, “the systems must liquidate assets to pay bills,” and that’s with no closing of the plans or changes by SERS and PSERS to their pension assumptions – just the bad funding policies the systems currently employ.

“Second, closing the system doesn’t limit cash flow into the system any more than it’s currently being limited by not closing the system.

“If the DB plans were closed, the people in that plan at the time of closure would continue to contribute to their plan (as well as their employer on their behalf), with no additional funding needed from any of the people to be hired in the future who would be in a different retirement plan.

“Of course if that closed plan employs unsustainable assumptions upon which all the contribution rates for employees and employers are based, well then there could be a big problem – but that has nothing to do with the plan being closed and everything to do with how the plan was designed.”

That last part is why CAP has been adamantly opposed to a “hybrid” pension plan that combines defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) elements. Some politicians and government union officials bring up the specter of “transition costs” as a reason to avoid switching to a pure 401k style DC plan. They’ve never once given an example of a private sector employer citing transition costs as a reason to keep offering pensions. A DC plan is the best way to protect beneficiaries and taxpayers.

As long as there is a DB plan, politicians will control what constitutes fully funding and what assumptions are made to determine liability. There is nothing to stop the General Assembly from making politically-driven assumptions about return on investment, life expectancy, and other factors that impact the liability. The further politicians deviate from reality in an attempt to enrich themselves and other government employees, the more likely it is that the money won’t be there to pay for their promises. Promising a lavish retirement is much more likely to get you votes than paying for it will. And, that bill is coming due.

Mr. Knepper is executive director of Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania.

Pardon Edward Snowden To Help Drain The Swamp

Pardon Edward Snowden
Pardon Citizenfour

Pardon Edward Snowden — President Trump has dumped serious hate on whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Wonder if he still feels that way.

Snowden revealed in May 2013 that American intelligence services were spying on just about every American phone call and email. It turns out this includes those of cabinet members if those cabinet members aren’t part of the right club.

Two days ago, Feb. 13, 2017, Michael Flynn was forced from his job as Trump’s National Security Advisor after intelligence bureaucrats leaked to anti-Trump publications intercepted communications showing that he had discussed easing Obama-imposed sanctions on Russia with that nation’s ambassador.

The leak was a clear violation of the law, — far clearer, in fact, than the one that Snowden is accused of doing.

The scary thing, though, is that the swamp-dwellers who took down Flynn also want Snowden locked up for life.

We think The Donald is just starting to understand how deep that swamp really is. Bringing Citizenfour home and saying all is forgiven would significantly help with draining it.

Snowden, by the way, is not kissing up to either Trump or benefactor Vladimir Putin. Check out his interview with Katie Couric.
