Chip Rogers’ price a cool $150,000

From Kristina Torres of the AJC:

Former state Sen. Chip Rogers will start his new job Tuesday earning a lofty $150,000 – making him the seventh executive at Georgia Public Broadcasting earning six figures annually, despite a rather pedestrian title: “Executive producer, community jobs program.”

The position, like others at GPB, is paid solely through state taxpayers’ money. But it is more than Gov. Nathan Deal and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle each make in their public jobs.

And it is more than what some of Rogers’ new colleagues made in the last fiscal year, including GBP’s vice president for radio and its chief information officer.

Rogers, of course, is the former Senate majority leader whose crank theories — land-use planning is a UN conspiracy to take over the country; Georgians must be legally protected from microchips being implanted in their brains — made him an embarrassment. His colorful business dealings — claiming that he could not be held liable for a major loan because it was the bank’s fault for being stupid enough to lend him the money — only added to his “charm”.

In effect, the governor is paying Rogers to go away to a place where he can do less harm, and he is using $150,000 in taxpayer money to do so.

Failing upward is more lucrative than most of us imagined.

It’s a terrible thing.

PBS is the only bastion of intelligent programming on the airwaves. It needs to be kept free of right wing extremists. Look at what happened next door in Alabama. They appointed a politician and religious right lackey to the board and he tried to force PBS Alabama to air videos made by professional liar and faux historian David Barton. In these pieces Barton insists the Founding Fathers intended America to be a Christian nation. When the top brass as PBS Alabama refused to air such garbage they were sacked.

Talk about your entitlement programs. Chip Rogers gets a bunch of taxpayer dollars for contributing absolutely nothing. Sickening, truly sickening.

Another reason to quit funding PBS and NPR. I don’t think the next pledge drive will mention the need for donations to support their new useless executive, but people will pony up anyway, because Big Bird’s existence is so vital. If our children don’t get started learning early, how can we expect them to attain an 8th grade reading level, by the time they graduate from high school.

Well, if they need another good GA citizen at PBS I reckon I could tear myself away from this beer truck driving job for $150,000. And I’d do a real good job. For example I always wanted to see the Rev. Jim Bob Buice get his own TV show. And the state couldn’t keep him from preaching on it because he wouldn’t be around little kids while he was telling us the Good Word. Having him on there would be alot better than some Climate Change program or other librul junk.

Anyhow, I’ll always be grateful to this Chip Rogers for keeping thugs from chasing me down and putting a chip in my brain. My brain works real good the way it is, it don’t need no chip to super-charge it.

In closing I just want to give a shout-out to all the folks for a real good FNM this week. When we got to playing the Beach Boys I knowed we was on the right track and it wasn’t just the PBR I was drinking at Billy Bob’s.

It’s too cold for golf today and besides Joe Bill don’t want to get his new Goodwill golf shoes all dirty from the mud that all the rain made. So I reckon I’ll just stay in the trailer today. Have a good weekend everybody.

Two questions:

2. Why does this AJC reporter seem to think it’s especially interesting newsworthy that a broadcasting outfit would have a some people making more than $150K? (I might be misreading that, but that was my takeaway.)

$150K a year. Must be a real important job. So important that PBS interviewed exactly ZERO candidates for it. Honey Boo Boo is more qualified than Rogers.

The entire article mentions that the head of GA PBS was NOT pressured into hiring Rogers – yeah right (roll-eyes). She goes on to say that Rogers has really dug in and studied hard to be knowledgeable when he starts his new gig.

“Oh, you look through THIS end of the camera!”
“And where is my parking space again?”

Well folks here we go again. You libs love to argue for more governmental power and cronyism then you go crazy tryi g to put it in cons faces when a government official abuses his governmental position. You see libs, the folks who vote against big government are serious. If we had it our way there would be no taxpayer funded television station for Chip to run off to and hide. It’s you libs who believe government should be running TV stations with taxpayer money. Jay why not mention that part of the story ?

Some day libs will understand, given the chance government is naturally invasive. It’s like Kudzu. Power is enticing and abuse of it often comes from those who want to do a good thing. That’s why we as cons don’t trust the case that you libs make. EVERYONE wants more pay, the government is the entity with the power to take from you to get it for them.

There’s some “growing up” needed by some here. If an elected official needs to be moved aside, the voters don’t do it, and there is no grounds to send him/her to jail, this is the way it is done. It happens all the time in government and similarly in business. It will be surprising if Rogers is still at GPB by the end of Deal’s term. On first blush it’s offensive, but most likely worth the bucks in the end.

“Wow, is Illinois and Chicago great or what?

Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ?

Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago .

221 killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

President: Barack Hussein Obama

Senator: Dick Durbin

House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.

Governor: Pat Quinn

House leader: Mike Madigan

Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)

Mayor: Rahm Emanuel

The leadership in Illinois – all Democrats.

Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago .

Of course, they’re all blaming each other.

Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.

Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.

Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.

Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois .

And he is going to ‘fix’ Washington politics for us???

George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the big house. Of course he was replaced by Rob Blagojevich who is…that’s right, also in the big house. And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago. That is because he is fighting being sent to…that’s right, the big house.

The Land of Lincoln , where our governors make our license plates.

But you know what? As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago , nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.”

“Next time the state senators meet for their Glenn Beck conspiracy party, maybe Rodgers can have GPB do a documentary on it..”

TDS, I can’t wait for that one. I’m also looking forward to another program Rogers is going to produce.

“This Old Roach Motel” Chip Rogers and Tom Graves host a weekly series showcasing the renovation of the old Crack and Quickie Motel in north Georgia. Watch the progress as Rogers and Graves document $2.1 million dollars vanishing into thin air.

Read one bookman column, you have read them all. GOP bad, Democrats gooooood. Reid, Piglosi should be paying him for all the slobbering over them he does.

Paul Broun’s resume for that GPB job is just as impressive as Chip’s.

anyone remember NPR firing Juan Williams because he stepped out of line one time. Liberals are self righteous thugs. They even eat their own if they dare think for themselves, even if its just one time. Lieberman is another fine example of that.

This Old Roach Motel.

I like!

And Georgia still has an abundance of unemployed plumbers and electricians and carpenters and such so there shouldn’t be any problem getting all the talent needed for the show at a reasonable price.

The undeniable point is, Obama can create as many useless positions as he wants, waste millions of tax payer dollars a year paying the special interest “advisors” and not a peep from the Left.

Deal successfully shuffles a problem to the side and you are oh so outraged. Con this and Con that.

It’s ridiculous.

We need more Conservatives in leadership positions in state government. I think I will have to talk to Deal again and volunteer to serve in a leadership position in his second term so that we can get rid of more progressives from government.

George Bush appointed himself a reading czar after he struggled with the big words in “My Pet Goat”.

This country has a community organizer for president so now GPB has a community jobs executive. Both are not worth the salt in their body but they are getting good pay because of others stupidity. What a circus!At least we can laugh at the clowns. Fools we all are!
