Devious Lame-Duck Dems: This is Why Companies Don't Allow Fired Employees Stay Another Month...

... to Pilfer and Sabotage

Operative word for conservatives: VIGILANCE

The so-called progressives aren't done with their date-rape of this country just yet...

As legislators return to the Hill today, don't let the reported "slow start" to the congressional lame duck session lull you into complacency... rather expect the worst and keep your guard up for a sharp left-hook at anytime over the coming weeks.

From it's deathbed, the fading Obama-Reid-Pelosi triumvirate is apt to ram-through anything they can get the votes for: it's not like they'll be restrained by any scruples- and you already know what they think of your opinion.

Aided by highly-suspect delays in Illinois, "progressive" Democrats in the Senate do appear to have been laying the groundwork for one last assault on our freedom -and pocketbooks- with a final "screw you" to an America that clearly can't get rid of them fast-enough...

Bruce Walker at American Thinker (highlights RR): Now, in a lame duck session of Congress, Obama and his Leftist pals are already finagling the rules of democratic process. Senator-elect Kirk will not be sworn into office because undisclosed Democrat functionaries in the bowels of Illinois state government cannot find the paperwork.

Oddly, though this duly elected Republican will not take office before the lame duck session begins, Senator-elect Manchin and Senator-elect Coons, both Democrats, will be sworn and serve in the lame duck session. The malodorous stench of hack partisanship is repulsive, but also familiar when Democrats are in power.

What could a lame duck session do? It could do anything.

House members already voted out of office in Red districts need not fear the wrath of the voters. Fifty-nine senators will be close to cloture strength, with "Senator" Manchin and "Senator" Coons voting while "Senator" Kirk waits for a file clerk in Springfield to find that darned missing paperwork needed to swear him into office.

So all the great evils we feared from Obama can be done in a single day by a Left massively repudiated by the voters...

With 59 Democrats in the Senate, the GOP will be trusting Massachusetts' Scott Brown to sustain a filibuster. But given the weight of the highly-controversial bills that could conceivably be brought to a vote -such as the amnesty-granting DREAM act- conservatives should try to avoid counting solely on Senator Brown to deliver us... especially since the guy's not all that conservative anyway.

Consider that while the Big Red Wave was washing across the nation earlier this month, all ten Massachusetts congressional seats remained in Democrats' hands- an event that may have a skittish Brown -with an eye on 2012- tempted to side with Obama on some issues. He's already done it in previously, though you'd think that the good Senator might be more of a stand-up guy than to enable such a shameful parliamentary stunt...

The Daily Collegian (highlights RR):

Although the state’s many committed moonbats don’t know this, Scott Brown is a liberal – albeit wealthier than the barn coat and old truck routine would lead one to believe.

He rejected Sarah Palin’s and the Tea Party’s endorsement last year. He refused to appear with them on Boston Common in the spring for fear of ostracizing Massachusetts largely anti-Tea Party electorate...

In addition, he fully supports many liberal causes. These include legal abortion and the 2006 Romneycare initiative, which essentially required that all Bay State residents secure health insurance – privately or through the state. He also split with his party to vote for President Barack Obama’s financial reform and jobs bills earlier this year. ... Other than the symbolism of telling Washington that America didn’t want Obamacare, we haven’t seen much out of him. Essentially, Brown is keeping a low, uncontroversial profile. Two years isn’t enough to quench his thirst for higher office. I have little doubt that he has White House aspirations, and upsetting blue voters before he secures a full six-year term is not on his agenda.

In addition to the amnesties and spending you might expect to be forced-upon us, Obama recently stated that ratification of his criminally naive trust-and-no-need-to-verify START treaty with Russia is a priority... while to those with any strategic sense, the deal is a big mistake.

What's a concerned patriot to do?

Put pressure on the ones who still have something to lose...

For instance, in the process of triangulating to get himself elected interim-senator, Joe Manchin (D-WV) promised he would not be a rubber stamp for Obama- and he faces re-election in 2012. This man must be held to his word by the good people of West Virginia.

Senator Nelson of Nebraska should also be watched closely... his part in the Cornhusker kickback scheme was not popular with his constituency, nor is the ObamaCare legislation is served to enable. Watch your step, Senator- we are.

Democrats from Bush-Republican states facing voters in 2012 -such as Webb (Va), Tester (MT), Bingaman (NM), McCaskill (MS), Nelson (FL), Sherrod (OH) and Conrad (ND)- need to be made sufficiently aware that they will be marked for elimination if they dare vote for for cloture in a lame duck session. Rather, we expect them to be respecting the will of the people and condemning the appalling Chicago Machine corruption that is keeping Senator Kirk from voting.

Those facing re-election in 2014 may also be reminded that we won't forget any affronts to democracy. Eleven Senate Democrats from Red states who perhaps could use a tap on the shoulder from their constituents include Begich (AK), Pryor (AR), Udall (CO), Landrieu (LA), Baucus (MT), Sheehan (NH), Udall (NM), Hagan (NC), Thompson (SD), Warner (VA), and Rockefeller (WV).

Contact your Senator quickly and easily -here-

And what they need to do is simply take a page from the smooth career path of Obama himself by voting "present" on all cloture motions... at least until the Democrat-run government of Illinois has time to scare-up those misplaced certification forms. You know, the ones that were NO problem when Blago picked Burris to be senator- and he was in DC the next week.

American patriots need to swamp these Dems with emails, phone calls, and letters to make sure they will indeed be held to account for their actions... whether in two years or four. If the Democrats continue to refuse Senator Kirk his seat, the only possible vote that still respects democracy is "wait until January" to floor any controversial and/or unpopular bills.

But the most important thing for them to know at this time is that siding with Reid and the radical Left in disgraceful, anti-democratic lame duck maneuvers will surely sound the death knell for their political career- and they'd best believe that.

Yep! When you are fired or laid off you are gone at that moment! Most of the time you are not even let back into your office or work staion. Your next option is what bar you head to with the others that were fired at the same time.

Excellent point. These bastards will be tempted to cause so much damage as the sore losers they are.

I must also give the obligatory comment.

All good and dandy til they Snipe you or your other employees leaving to go home for the night. Disgruntled new fires that may lose their homes may look at jail as a good option.

I've never seen nor heard this term - "disgruntled new fires" before.

Could you define it, please? Thanks.

basically the opposite of new hires. People that are newly unemployed.

Actually my last employer was notorious for leaving people in place that knew they were gone. They used severance as the carrot to keep the peace.

Did not stop the vandalism and malaise though. I was kept in place two months knowing I was gone so they could get me to move the downsized company to smaller digs.

A nightmare scenario:

1. Reid jams cap and trade through the Senate using 'reconciliation'. The Senate bill will have the same language as the House bill that passed last year in order to avoid a conference. Zero signs it into law before 12/31.

2. Every bill introduced in the House will have the so-called 'Dream Act' and the DADT repeal tacked on as amendments.Pelosi jams them through on party-line votes, then Reid quickly acts upon them. Zero signs the DA and DADT repeal into law before 12/31.

3. Card check legislation is pushed in both houses with a full-court press from the unions. Zero signs it into law before 12/31.

4. Since Reid and Pelosi were busy with the above, nothing is done to extend the tax cuts, and all scheduled tax increases automatically go into effect on 1/1/2011.

5. The 112th Congress votes to repeal all of the above (in addition to repealing Obamacare), and the repeal efforts die in the Senate.

6. The revolution begins ...

Sadly, not that far-fetched either...

somebody on another post gave false information earlier in the month, stating that Burris of ILL is already out and that the ILL seat is vacant.

Burris is still in office and will participate in the lame duck until Kirk is sworn in. The idea of having the seat vacant was too good to be true (for cloture).

basically the opposite of new hires. . . "newly unemployed".

Both the terms used above are a very far cry from "newly fired"!!!
I would not recommend - in your case - that you go to a bar some evening after work (or worse, during the day) and use the term "newly fired". That is, unless you want to sharpen your bar fighting skills.

“The so-called progressives aren’t done with their date-rape of this country just yet... “

So this situation focuses my position that the TPM MUST make an amendment to the COTUS that makes LameDuck sessions finished when the session is over before the elections.

As the provisions to the current version, have the new congress start its tenor 15 Nov[3rd Mon in Nov(HSpeaker by 16Nov)[2 days later], ECollege on 18 Nov[2 days later], and POTUS comes in few days after all this [20Nov].
Move all the transitions from Jan to Nov.

This is Why Companies Don't Allow Fired Employees Stay Another Month...

LOL! The last time I allowed myself to become fired, I was escorted out by security, with the promise of having the contents of my desk sent to me later.

If that promise was kept, you may have been one of the lucky ones. (On those occasions when I've been canned, I was always allowed at least to retrieve my personal possessions from my desk before leaving.)

I remember reading the memoir of Noah Dietrich, the longtime number one aide to Howard Hughes, in which Dietrich said he had to get a court order to get his personal possessions out of his old office after he walked out on Hughes in 1957. (The memoir was the first known from-the-inside look at the Hughes empire.) Dietrich had resigned over a capital gains dispute---Hughes had long promised him a new capital-gains deal on some of his income; the resignation occurred away from Dietrich's office and at Hughes's then-home.

"Lock up his office!" Dietrich recalled the long-familiar Hughes order whenever top Hughes executives left, a practise the young Hughes began with the memory of how a one-time Hughes Tool engineer named Reed walked out of the tool company with some critical blueprints by Hughes's father (whose multiple revolving-edge drilling bit invention revolutionised the oil industry and---thanks to leasing more than selling the bits---provided the fortune Hughes, Jr. used as his own foundation) from which Reed developed a rival drilling bit company.

Dietrich wasn't even close to the type who'd walk out with company secrets to exploit (it took him almost twelve years to begin writing his memoir*), but he was so indispensable to Hughes that Hughes just wouldn't let him go without a fight. Hence the court order.

(* -- Dietrich's memoir, by the way, is believed to be the inadvertent source for the infamous Clifford Irving hoax: an early draft of the Dietrich book, for which Dietrich had had the help of writer James Phelan, is thought to have gotten into Irving's hands one or another way, giving Irving enough information to help convince his own publisher that he had the real Hughes autobiography on his hands and in his typewriter . . . at first. It must have rankled Dietrich if it was true, since Dietrich said his first reason for writing his memoir was to leave his children and grandchildren a record of the role he played in the Hughes story.)

You obviously had not just finished telling your Department Manager precisely what you thought of her from a personal and professional standpoint.

Actually, now that I think about it, security wasn't called to help me find my way to the door. Weird.

BluesDuke, thanks for posting the Noah Dietrich story. It was a very interesting read. Howard Hughes is a very fascinating character.

Have yourself a great day!

Our County Board President in Cook County Illinois has been a lame duck since February 2nd when he was ousted in the rat primary. Before he leaves he’ll have been a lame duck for 11 months.

I waited until I had my personal possessions out of my desk and in my car.

Then I told the damned fool that taking lessons in propriety from him was a lot like learning about love from Joseph Stalin.

I'd like to see Dietrich's memoir come back into print. Granted that Dietrich died in 1982 (he was 93), but it's practically the best book I ever read about the Hughes empire's making and near-unmaking. (Hughes could have been destroyed by the TWA financing crisis during which he lost Dietrich---Dietrich pressed for that capital-gains agreement as a condition for his going to Texas to inflate Hughes Tool profit enough to let Hughes sell the company to pay for 63 Convair 880 jets to augment the carrier's Boeing 707s---but, not long after Dietrich left Hughes, Hughes was forced circumstantially to sell his major stake in the airline, when creditors refused to allow him control of both aircraft development and operation . . . and the sale proved one of the greatest bonanzas of the early jet age.)
