    Dictator Obama Signs Executive Order Giving Himself a Pay Increase!

    (PP)- Friday a White House press release was inadvertently distributed early to news organizations announcing that President Barack Hussein Obama had signed an executive order giving himself a pay raise to $500,000 annually.

    ObamaWhite House staff failed to squash the story as the press release was intended to be distributed late in the day on Friday, after the deadline when most news agencies are able to publish breaking news stories.

    Critics of the President's executive order say the move makes Obama seem "politically tone deaf" because he gave himself a raise at a time when the federal government is arbitrarily cutting services and benefits due to sequestration.

    How reliable is this story? Last time I checked, raising federal government employee pay, including his own, is NOT something the president can do by executive order. Only Congress can do that.

    IF it's true, and I don't know that it is; it would just be another way of Obama flaunting his "alleged" power in his usual "in your face" manner.

    Another case of making up **** tat makes us call look foolish. If the were true, In suspect it would be in some outlet other than the Palookaville Post - which by the way, is a satirical website (as in it is ********).

  6. "How reliable"? "IF it's true"? Gee, some people will fall for ANYTHING! This story on the PalookavillePost . com is amongst other stories such as "Massachusetts Democrats Approve Flag Burning During Flag Day Parade" and "Teacher Fired for Praying in School During Oklahoma Tornado".

    What part of "satirical website" do you not understand? So if it's about Obama, DON'T think, and for goodness sake DON'T google it or check snopes, just react and repost it!

    Other news sources say it was to lift a three year wage freeze and that Federal workers, congress and the VP benefited - no mention of President Obama being on the list too.

    Correct, he can't raise his own. He did raise the VP's though. Signed back in Dec and effective in March.

    That was to help pay for his doctor bills for shooting his mouth off!
