The U.S. government has far too many overpaid employees who do little or nothing. Once hired they are virtually impossible to fire. They can come in, or not. They can sleep on their desks for the better part of the day and they are protected by a system that, more often than not, rewards failure and punishes accomplishment.
That said, I must offer my apologies to the thousands of sincere, selfless government employees who come in and do their very best for God and country every day in spite of the mess we’ve created for them.
Far worse than the career government employees are some of the 7,000 or so political appointees who serve at the pleasure of the president. They are completely untouchable. Many are unqualified for the jobs they now hold and may have little or no knowledge of the agencies that they now control. Some say that these political appointees lord it over the rank and file who are simply attempting to do their jobs.
Now, let me nominate a woman who should go down as the very worst government employee in U.S. history. Her name is Hilary Clinton. Her claim to fame is that she married a charismatic politician and rode his coattails to the White House, to a seat in the U.S. Senate and to the job of Secretary of State.

There are twelve new faces in the Republican Senate caucus this year. Each won a hard-fought victory.
They all made big promises on the road to Washington which they expected to keep.
Without exception, all made definitive statements on the problem of illegal immigration and the president’s plan to create amnesty for millions with the stroke of his pen. This is a good time to review some of the statements made before and immediately after their elections:
Shelly Capito (R-W.V.) “The president does not have the constitutional authority to grant amnesty to millions of people who have broken the law by entering our country illegally. President Obama’s executive action on immigration is wrong and violates the responsibility of Congress to write and pass laws as outlined in our Constitution. (Facebook posting December 4, 2014)
Bill Cassidy (R-La.) “We must stop Obama … As your senator, I will fight his amnesty plan. Your tax dollars should benefit you, not those here illegally.” (On-line campaign ad) Continue reading “McConnell to Newbies: Drop Dead!”
In the run-up to the November election President Obama rightfully said that he wasn’t on the ballot but his policies were. Voters responded and sent a strong message against those policies by kicking out a large number of Democrat office holders and putting Republicans in control of Congress.
It wasn’t because Republicans had a strong message. It was because the individual candidates running against those ousted Democrats all voiced their opposition to Obamacare and his illegal executive action granting amnesty to millions of alien lawbreakers.
Three months have passed since that message was sent and voters now find themselves caught between a Democrat rock and a Republican soft-place. Democrats have no power, but when the issue of Obama’s amnesty came up in the Senate, they put up a united front to shield the president from having to veto a popular measure — the bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security sans funding for amnesty.
When that happened, Republicans, who have all the power, grabbed their pacifiers and blankies and went into their soft-place hidey-holes. Continue reading “Voters: Caught between a Democrat Rock and a Repubican Soft-Place”
We have a crisis on our souther border. President Obama’s solution is to ask Congress for $3.8 billion dollars to process and care for these children who are illegally crossing into our country at an unprecedented rate. This, of course, would only be a down payment because, if these children aren’t immediately returned to their home country, thousands more will be on their way.
Meanwhile, Obama is flying the children, many of whom are sick and diseased, around the country and dumping them in selected communities without so much as a warning to local officials.
This must stop, not only for the good of the country, but for the welfare of these children! Obama’s policy and lack of enforcement are causing poor Central American parents to put their children into the care of smugglers in hopes of using them as anchors into the United States. Sadly, many of these young people are mistreated and raped along the way! Continue reading “Real Immigration Reform: What’s Missing”
Conservatives are confident that Barack Obama’s support of gay marriage will cost him the election. This may or may not be the case. Polls show Americans to be evenly divided on this issue. However, one thing is clear: While older voters are strongly opposed to these unions, younger voters strongly support them and the gap on this issue continues to close each and every year.
Conservatives are slowly losing the battle to protect marriage. If we don’t change our tactics we will lose, not today or even tomorrow, but we will lose! Continue reading “Drip, Drip, Drip: Conservatives slowing losing Marriage Debate”
There was a time, when the United States of America was respected for its justice system. No more! In fact, things have deteriorated so much under the current administration, the Justice Department headed by Attorney General Eric Holder is a national disgrace. Terrorists and those out to undermine our borders and trample our laws are laughing at us!
Monday’s ruling, blocking a Texas law requiring voters to show a photo ID, should be the last in a very large pile of “last straws.” A few months ago, the same Holder Injustice Department blocked a similar requirement in the state of South Carolina.
Why? Injustice says this requirement places an undue burden on minorities. How so? Continue reading “The “Injustice” Department”
