Fragged: Shrapnel of SB1 in the Senate!

Fragged: HB1135 in the Senate.
Fragged: (military/ Vietnam) – wounds or death caused by military FRAGmentation weaponry, like grenade, mortar, or landmine. The urban dictionary also explains it as political maneuvers to destroy the marginalized as a result of friendly fire or perhaps something like a remnant of SB1 (
SB1, Madigan’s principle piece of draconian and unconstitutional cuts to active and retired public sector workers has been held enthralled in Senate Leader Cullerton’s pension committee, but Cullerton may allow various pieces of the SB1 bill to arrive unattached on the floor of the Senate in order to either appease Madigan, test the viability of Madigan’s SB1, or demonstrate the Senate’s unwillingness to abandon their own bill: SB2404.  Only Madigan and Cullerton truly know.  Either way, we in public sector will take the pain for Springfield’s decades of non-payment to our pensions.
It is likely that these deadly shards and splinters of SB1 could become subject to voting in the next two days.  Please call your Senator to dissuade them from voting “yes” on such unconstitutional segments of SB1.  From We are One:
   HB 1165 (deep COLA cuts) is opposed by the coalition. It caps cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) at extremely low levels and delays all COLAs for five years or until age 67, whichever comes first. The caps alone have the effect of reducing the value of a pension by one-third to one-half after twenty years in retirement.
                     All the while, senior citizens – as major consumers of health care services – are one of the most at-risk demographic groups subject to inflationary pressures. The bill makes it near impossible to keep up with the rising cost-of-living.
   HB 1166 (retirement age increases) is opposed by the coalition. It increases retirement ages anywhere from one to five years. Employees under age 35 would face a five-year increase, employees between age 35 and 40 would face a three-year increase, and employees between age 40 and 45 would face a one-year increase. 
                     It contains no consideration for employees with physically-demanding professions, such as police officers, fire fighters, corrections officers, and nurses.
                     An increase in retirement age effectively causes an individual’s accrued benefits to lose 6% in value for each year of increase. A younger worker – under the age of 35 in this instance – would lose 30% of his or her pension’s value if this amendment became law. Even slightly older workers – those between 35 and 40 – would face a loss in value of 18% upon retirement.
   HB 1154 (pensionable salary caps) is opposed by the coalition. It puts a cap on the amount of salary that qualifies for a pension.
                     The bill fails to recognize the mandatory overtime worked by many public servants.
                     Caps on pensionable salary also create disincentives for hiring and recruiting for critical public professions, particularly ones that require advanced degrees, such as those in the medical or higher education fields. It can also hurt filling these types of civil service positions, which are often more cost effective than contracting out for expensive, specialized services.
SB 1 (Speaker's mega-bill) is opposed by the coalition. It essentially packages these three pension-cutting House bills together into a single, destructive piece of legislation.

  2. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.

    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.
    I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.

    My Experience
    I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!
