If I'm ever sued, this site will go up for sale for the amount of damages sought, along with posting any documents I receive. If you think you can copyright a letter you send to me, go for it.
I'm still learning about blog design and I've found a problem when viewing this blog. It does not behave properly in small browser windows and if your display resolution is less than 1280 pixels wide and/or you are viewing the blog in a window less than 980 pixels blog wide, the right side bar is pushed below any visible post. I've searched the web and looked at the code for hours but can't find the problem. My next step, when I get the time, is to recreate the blog with a new template. Advice is appreciated.

This Years Winners!

This year's co-winners: democrat Senators Max Bracus of Montana and Ted Kennedy of the state with too many bridges, both now clearly representing Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and the other residents of Never NeverLand .

Dating myself I know. The prestigious Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award was a creation of the Rowan and Martin Laugh-In TV show from the sixties and was presented for dubious achievements, usually a really stupid idea.

And Messieurs Bracus and Kennedy have outdone even themselves with this plan! As reported by the site Vin Suprynowicz, the Wall Street Journal and Investors Business Daily, the dynamic duo would tax non-union employer provided health plans while leaving labor union health plans unscathed.

The Senators, scrambling to find a trillion or so dollars to fund a one-size-fits-all government health plan, want to tax the health benefits of the American worker. There are a couple of plus's as the distinguished leaders see it: raise a lot of money and make private plans even more expensive so the kick-in-the-teeth government plan is the only affordable option.

"Unfair!" was the collective labor union howl; "You'll hurt the movement because one of the major incentives to join a union are the health benefits we can negotiate" Understandable, after buying their government for untold millions ($400,000,000?), it hardly seems a fair return on investment. The two pooled their collective wisdom and came up with a brilliant compromise: tax health benefits for non-union workers and give the union members a special tax break. WOW! I can only say brilliant except.......

This is not Never NeverLand, Peter Pan does not exist (sorry kids) and Americans are a lot smarter than you'd like to believe. We agree that there is a mess in delivering health benefits and it is unacceptable that even one American does not have adequate coverage so First Transit Employee Rights Blog endorses our own health plan proposal.

Enroll every American in the Senate Health Plan! We understand that it's going to be REALLY expensive so to save money, the Senators would get the coverage they are proposing for the American public. We're still going to be a few trillion short so we're also proposing the "Hire a Senator part-time" program, all wages to go toward health care. I'd suggest $100,000 per hour for up to 20 hours per week per Senator. Good old fashioned American corruption - it's a win-win for everyone!
