In the Civil Service, you are advanced and rewarded for how many bodies are under your direction. It is similar to any Government organization including the Military. A Sargent gets a small pay check because he has a small number of troops reporting to him and his paycheck is small. A Colonel has a bigger paycheck because he has a lot more PEOPLE, which in the Civil Service authorizes a higher GS rating and higher salary. IN GOVERNMENT THE GOAL IS TO ADD PEOPLE, NOT DO MORE WITH LESS!
The elephant in the room which people insist on avoiding is this: The goal of a Government agency or department is to increase the number of employees in their department. Ergo, if you formed a new department to count the number of days on the calender, within Six Months they would have a 90 Day Backlog!!! This is a simple measure of protection against being downsized. They can always respond: WHAT? WE ACTUALLY NEED ADDITIONAL PERSONNEL OF AN AUTHORIZATION FOR BEAU COU OVERTIME; WE BE BEHIND EVEN AS WE SPEAK!!! Go look for some efficient department who is current with their production and cut them!!!
Wasn't he working for CNN before going to the "Fun House"?
Bet he knew that Lucrative Parachute was promised to him as an incentive to take the job in the first place!
There is no record of Rats leaving a sinking Ship in order to save the ship! Rather, it is always the other way 'round!!
Attempting to inject a little levity there. Have read much of Amity Schlaes including the "Forgotten Man" and Victor Davis Hanson is practically a Neighbor of mine here in the Central Valley. It is ME who wrote that every Congressman should be required to read "Two California's" by Hansen BEFORE voting on Immigration Reform! But, your point is well taken.
What Honest Historians? Doris Stearns Goodwin? Slessenger, who has been described as "KENNEDY'S "KEPT BIOGRAPHER" or some REAL Conservative like David Brooks who knew Obama would be president; could tell by looking at the crease in his pants? Recent history has been written by 92% avowed Liberals and 8% Independents!
Only when the very last person in the MSM has sacrificed themselves in their defense!
Don't know who he will be joining, but whoever, OUR LOSS IS THEIR LOSS!!!!!!!!!!!
You have seen even the most modest attempts to reduce the growth rate of all the programs (no one has ever attempted to cut the size of programs but to simply keep them from enlarging their budgets every year) come to naught. WE ARE GREECE!!!! No one even mentions turning things around. Anyone we elect will have to keep driving this Titanic till it sinks, AND, LIKE THE TITANIC, THERE WON'T BE EVEN HALF ENOUGH LIFE BOATS FOR YOU ALL! NOPE, NO ONE WILL PUT THE BELL ON THE CAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But, even they are paying only half the current expenses; the other half is being borrowed. (So why should people get all lathered up about spending programs when they are not asked to foot any of the cost?) Why, let those Overpriviliged upper half of the wage earners pay all the money that is being paid today while the rest is being borrowed. And yes, that money that the US if printing? Well that too is being borrowed and adds to the national Debt! Our Government has no intention to ever repay that money so interest will have to be paid for everyoues entire life on money so casually borrowed!
