Southerland: Public service an honor but not a cushy job *snip* "And by the way, did I mention? They're shooting at us. There is law-enforcement security in this room right now, and why is that?" Southerland told about 125 people in an auditorium at the Westminster Oaks retirement community. "If you think this job pays too much, with those kinds of risks and cutting me off from my family business, I'll just tell you: This job don't mean that much to me. I had a good life in Panama City." He said his $174,000 salary is not so much, considering the hours a member of the House puts in, and that he had to sever ties with his family business in Panama City. *snip* Who is shooting at him???? This teabagging moron is one of the stupidest people in Congress. I know, because he's my representative. I wish he would go back to Panama City and his family business.
