Welcome to the blogspot of the Staten Island Tax Day Tea Party. We are not affiliated with any organization; we are simply a group of AMERICAN CITIZENS who refuse to sit idly by and watch the destruction of all the values we hold so dear.
We ask you to join us at NOON on TAX DAY - Wednesday, April 15th, 2009 - in front of the offices of CONGRESSMAN MICHAEL McMAHON to protest his support of the radical agenda of President Obama and his cohorts, Reid and Pelosi. Our demonstration will take place in front of 265 New Dorp Lane, at the corner of Edison Street.
Bring your signs, banners and flags. We, the citizens of Staten Island, NY, MUST make our voices heard to our representatives.

New proposal would “prohibit unreasonable and excessive compensation and compensation not based on performance standards...”
In short, this measure would permit the government to impose controls on the pay of all employees of a company that has received bailout money, a.k.a. "a capital investment by the U.S. government." And not just top execs, either; in this case "all" means all, even the rank and file employees. The bill directs the Treasury Department, a.k.a. Tim Geithner, to evaluate “the performance of the individual executive or employee to whom the payment relates.”
Wouldn't you know that this little dandy would be retroactive, too, meaning that employment contracts in place wouldn't be worth the paper upon which they're written. Destruction of the sanctity of the contract seems to be an Obama Administration forte.
If you're thinking to yourself that this cannot possibly be constitutional, I'd say you're on target. If you're looking around to find the outrage, I'd say keep looking, even though you're not likely to find it.
Where is the outrage, indeed. Where are the Republican press conferences about this usurpation of power? Where is the Republican media blitz condemning this headlong dive into Marxism? Sadly, nowhere to be found.
