6.5 million SSNs for people 112 and up and they think there is the "Potential" of identity theft and fraud. This is another example of the mental genius of the civil servants running this country.

In terms of what you say, I agree. I know for what I have experienced as a professional, it is who you know, rather than what you can do to become a high ranking "government" official. True that this is life in general, but it should no be passed over matters of quality of care of our veterans.

This statement within the article is what is wrong with liberal thinking.

"The fact is, we’ve had growing inequality in the country for many years,” he said. “It didn’t happen overnight, but it’s steadily been happening. Government used to be a source of leadership and innovation around issues of economic prosperity and upward mobility. Now we’re a country disinclined to invest in our young people.”

Liberals think the government is the answer but in reality it is the government creating the inequalities. The government education system is a perfect example of governments failure to do anything right or innovative. We spend more money today per student than ever before in our countries history and the proof that government schools are a failure is that anyone that has the ability to keep their children out of government schools do so thus creating the disproportionate amount of poor in government schools. If the liberals really want to educate the poor they would back things like voucher programs that would allow all students to escape government schools run by union government employees/teachers. 
The explosion in the number of needy children in classrooms has profound implications for the nation.

When someone wants to claim that not all Muslims are responsible for the actions of radicals. Show them this. 
For years we have been hearing that Islam has always been ‘hijacked’ by certain muslim extremists, but we dare ask… does that really matter? Yes we understand that MOST Muslims are peaceful, however. That should always come with the helpful

I remember from the last government shut down that thousands of non essential personnel were sent home and for the most part not one necessary government function ceased to happen. Why do we have non essential personnel working for the government. Is this a form of high paid welfare. Looks that way to me. How many private sector companies/corporations have non essential personnel? If any of them do its not for long.
It is time we do away with all of these non essential positions in the government and at the same time federal employee pay needs to be brought in line with their public sector equivalents, do away with their protected status and make it far easier to remove them for incompetence.
 
Congress Appears Poised to Pass Government Funding

Wednesday, December 3, 2014 
(National Federation of Federal Employees)

When certain members in Congress voiced their desire to hold government funding hostage over the President’s Executive Order on immigration earlier this month, congressional leadership knew they had to act in order to avoid a repeat of the catastrophic 2013 government shutdown. In what appeared to be heading towards an all-out fight between tea party and moderate members within the GOP, Congress now appears to be headed towards a funding compromise to keep the government funded beyond its current Dec. 11, 2014 deadline.

The solution devised by congressional leaders will be in the form of another short-term continuing resolution, but will also include a few long-term funding measures for certain agencies. Notably, there is a significant push to find avenues to defund any implementation of the President’s newly-signed Executive Order. However, the final details of the plan remain uncertain and are expected to be rolled out in the days leading up to the Dec. 11, 2014 funding deadline. 

Unfortunately, the threat of a government shutdown is becoming a common tactic for desperate members of Congress to air their overtly-partisan ambitions. The fact that aimlessly punishing millions of Americans while wasting $24 billion in taxpayer dollars is considered a good negotiating tool is disheartening.

“It’s a sad day when kicking over a million people off the job to make a partisan statement is considered a good negotiating tool,” said NFFE National President William Dougan. “If members of Congress have problems with decisions made by the President’s administration, they should direct those grievances to the President. Throwing the lives of federal employees into turmoil as a method to send a partisan message to the President is a gross abuse of power. Amidst repeated threats of a shutdown, increased pension contributions and paltry pay adjustments that fail to address cost-of-living increases, it is no wonder the morale of federal employees continues to fall.”

This liberal puke +Brian Gauspohl​ posted this to deliberately make republicans look racist. But republicans did not write or publish this exit poll but a bunch of liberals without real jobs did. What republicans did was to elect an fine american named Tim Scott, who happens to be a black american, to the Senate. The funny thing is that the democrats have been trying to crucify him ever sense. So tell me who are the real racists here, +Brian Gauspohl​ and his liberal friends or the republicans of South Carolina that elected Tim Scott.

An other example of a government civil service employee. These people are suppose to be serving the public and in this case Vets but instead they have nothing but contempt for those they are suppose to be serving. 
A social worker at an Indianapolis Veteran Affairs clinic was disciplined earlier this year after sending emails to colleagues mocking the mental health problems of combat veterans.

Previously he had said that 900 VA employees had been fired for their part in the miss treatment of vets. But now it seems that it was only sixty and it appears that not even 60 have been canned so nothing at the VA has changed and won't as long as the government is providing the services because the government can't and won't oversee themselves. Government employees are only concerned with their own sorry backsides and the only people you will see depart the VA will be those that were already on the way out, such as retirement. I hope all of you non medical, non essential personnel at the VA are enjoying your paid holiday today because those Vets that have died or suffering because of lack of medical care owed to them wont because it is denied by you sorry pukes because you can't and won't do your job. And for all of you that are so fond of government healthcare. I suggest you wonder around your local VA hospital to see what government healthcare gets you. 
Documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon cast doubt on claims made Sunday by the secretary for veterans affairs that 60 people who manipulated wait time data have been fired by the agency over

This has become an annual affair. The air force does not like the A-10. It does not fly fast enough or foes it require a dozen computers to keep it in the air and most importantly close air support to troops on the ground doesn't seem to be a priority. Ad the dog face in the trenches if they want an A-10 covering their ass or some fast flyer that can't fly slow enough to know if they are shooting at the good guys or bad guys.
If the AF doesn't want them then give them to the army and lets end this back and forth argument. 
Its roaring engine, ferocious nose paint and 30-mm cannon send ISIS fighters scattering like cockroaches on the Iraqi desert plains, but the legendary A-10 “Warthog” fighter plane may be fighting for its own life on the desert plains of Iraq.

Looks to me like the top money supporter of the democrat party is guilty of inciting riots. But I guess pumping billions to the party that is trying to destroy this country gets you a get out of jail free card. 
There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets.

This is another extreme power grab by the federal government. If this is allowed to happen the federal government will control virtually all surface water on both private and public lands which will give the federal government control of call land use age in the country virtually removing all private property rights. 
In The Wall Street Journal, Reed Hopper and Todd Gaziano of the Pacific Legal Foundation write that the EPA wants to redefine ‘the waters of the United States’ to mean virtually any wet spot in the country.

+James ALEXANDER​ I agree but it needs to go further. Government agencies should not be allowed to write any regulations. Government agencies write regulation and then enforce it like law. If you doubt that break some government regulation and see what happens to you. Under the constitution only congress can enact laws with the president thru his agencies enforce the laws written by congress.

Sarah Lacy and other members of the press are bent out if shape because Emir Michael of Uber says they should investigate and dig up dirt on journalists Like lacy and their families. Lacy has gone on a campaign crying about how afraid she is for her and her families safety. Sorry I have zero sympathy for her or any other member of the press. What Michael is suggesting be done to members of the press and their families is exactly what members of the press do to american citizens and their family members. If you doubt this look what our friends in the liberal press do to Sarah Palin and her family members. 
This is a tale of corporate arrogance, of hostility toward journalists, and of one woman who stood up to one of the fastest-growing companies in America.

Fox news had Sarah Lacy on media buzz yesterday and she is still crying her eyes out at the idea that she and her family would be investigated by someone. She's lucky I don't have the financial ability to have it done. I'd investigate them all.
