CONSPIRACY? IT MIGHT BE! IT COULD BE! HOLY COW!!! IT IS!!!

JUST BECAUSE I AM PARANOID, IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THERE IS NOT A CONSPIRACY

When the same thing keeps coming up in many places far apart.  When the same words are spoken by different people in different places.  When the M.O. is the same, but the people ain't. I start to get a little suspicion.  Here is what I am seeing and hearing across the country - right now.

"Hello, Mr. Police Union President?  This is your mayor speaking.  I have taken 200 of your members hostage.  Unless my demands are met, I will immediately fire them.  Listen closely.  I am only going to say this once.  You have two weeks to approve the following changes in your contract:

  1. The pay matrix will be reduced by 7%
  2. There will not any movements within the pay matrix (steps frozen)
  3. Employee contributions to medical insurance will increase to 50%
  4. Each of your members will take 10 unpaid furlough days
  5. Each employee with a take home car will have $300 per month deducted from his check
  6. We will re-evaluate this in 18 months
If you make any changes to my demands, I will immediately fire all 200 officers.
If you go public with this message, I will immediately fire all 200 officers
There will be no grace period.  You have two weeks.
Don't think I cannot pull the trigger?  Make my day.

Have a nice day."

This shake-down is playing in a theater (city hall) near you - right now, today.  Coming to your city soon - real soon.  This cannot not be coincidence - it's a conspiracy.  Someone on the management side of local governments is advocating this extortion scheme. Too many people are doing this.

This is like the Germans' last week in Paris.  They are plundering and looting like mad.  The American troops (economic recovery) are just on the outskirts of town.  Things are about to change.  Soon, there will be a new sheriff (prosperity) in town and the looting will have to stop.

If you are currently the victim of the kidnap and ransom scheme, you only have one viable option - take the layoffs. 

Good luck
