Obama vows to act without Congress in State of the Union speech
“President Obama warned Congress he won’t wait to take action on his agenda, vowing in Tuesday’s State of the Union address to use executive powers to sidestep Republican roadblocks on Capitol Hill. ” - NBC
Associated Press: In his State of the Union address, President Obama vowed to take steps without Congress “whenever and wherever” necessary to narrow economic disparities between the wealthy and poor.
He unveiled an array of executive actions that included increasing the minimum wage for some federal contract workers and making it easier for millions of low-income Americans to save for retirement.
"America does not stand still and neither do I," Obama declared in his annual prime-time address before a joint session of Congress and millions of Americans watching on television.
“Fun Fact: Obama’s Executive Order mandating Federal Contractors pay a wage of at least $10.10, stands unnecessarily in contrast to the Davis-Bacon act, which “establishes the requirement for paying the local prevailing wages on public works projects for laborers and mechanics.”
Additionally, in 2013, state and local government workers earned an average of $42.09 an hour, while Federal workers earned on average $83,769 per year, or about $40 per hour, similar to most state and local workers.
TSA Officers, some of the lowest payed Federal employees, still make upwards of $12 on average, or about $25,000 a year.
Keeping in mind that Federal employees on average already make much more than $10.10 an hour, my question then, Mr. President, is how is your “bypass of congress” not a completely pointless and redundant political ploy to shift attention away from drone strikes, warrantless spying, the blunder that is Obamacare, and your egregious expansion of Executive Power?” - Source

One thing’s for sure, they do compete. For e.g. Bad Romance is in actuality about being the best puppet there is in the industry, read more about it here. Their public personas, the things they say they believe in, who they ‘like’, it’s all a front and does not matter because their images are controlled. Gaga, who claims to be in support of social justice, constantly works and befriends R. Kelly, Terry Richardson, and the likes. They don’t really have a choice, are really in no state mentally to make good decisions, and rarely realize that they’re being manipulated. They’re empty little programmable walking talking shells of human beings, who have people write music for them, dress them, all so the population is abstracted by their petty work. They’re more focused on making their handlers happy, and do not have the same goals as the rest of us, so friendships do not hold the same meaning to them. They’re at the bottom of the hierarchy, working together is not something they care about. This is because though the agenda needs them, they’re replaceable and decisions regarding it do not concern them, that’s for the higher ups.
