The Eighth Labor

Is Barack Obama about to suffer the fate of Diomedes?

In the Greek Myth, Diomedes is fed to his Mares which he trained to dine on Human flesh.

The Greeks had a penchant for Irony and Unintended Consequences.

The metaphor seems apt in light of newly discovered actions by the IRS.  It appears that Obama supporters employed by the agency decided to target Conservative groups… for years.  They used the power of the agency in an attempt to intimidate and ultimately destroy their ideological opposition.  (It’s worth noting that they considered their opposition to be those teaching the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights to the masses.)

While the IRS revelations are only one of several problems this current White House is experiencing, it is an important one as it lends credibility to those who have warned of an over-reaching and oppressive government.  A concern which to date has been answered with the accusations of paranoia and hysteria from those in the Media and the White House.

For the record…

I will go as far a stating that I do not believe President Obama directly instructed those in the Internal Revenue Service to conduct themselves in such a manner.  On the contrary, these people were predisposed to behave this way.  These individuals have had a constant diet of “the ends justifies the means” in regard to promoting their Socialist Ideology because of the “fairness and equality” they believe it’s implementation will result in.

The President did not need to direct them… as he spent a better part of his life Teaching them how to behave this way.  All that needed to happen was an overt message of complacency from the Attorney General’s office when it came to politically motivated crime.  And, without fail, this was delivered to them by AG Holder when he intentionally did not prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation.  It was a big, and well publicized, demonstration of the AG’s ability to apply discretion in regard to what laws would be enforced.

In the End, the “Constitutional Law Professor“, the Community Organizer, the Smartest Man to have ever occupied the White House could become the victim of his own design.

The Socialist “Low Level Workers” are motivated, and have believed themselves to have a pass to do as they wished.  Considering the Progressive power struggle entering the 2016 Presidential race it would not surprise me if more skeletons are not thrown out for public consumption.

But validating the fears of all “The Crazies” out there cannot ultimately be good for Liberal politics… unless they are going to, once again, try to run as Fiscal Conservatives like they did in the 90’s.

Regardless… I say let the carnage begin!

Stin iyia mas!

(There is a particular reader who will find Flesh Eating Mares particularly appealing… and I can’t believe I beat Her to this.)


Very Open and Very Public!

In light of the discovery of IRS malfeasance regarding the politically motivated targeting of certain groups, the Obama Administration should conduct a swift prosecution of those responsible in an extremely visible way.  A person should be afraid to behave this way.  I wouldn’t even mind if they were afraid to work for the Federal Government… we have way to many of them as it is.

While flogging as well as drawing and quartering is out now days, I suggest public derision and career destruction… all on camera.

But this leads me to another topic… one that addresses what has always resided in the shadows.

Bureaucratic misbehavior and how to remedy it.

I recommend Term Limits for Bureaucrats.

Not too long ago I had a conversation with a Liberal friend of mine. He was touting the benefits of term limits for politicians. I understand this argument but…

I happen to oppose term limits for politicians as we all get a chance to fire these people every 2, 4 and 6 years.  If they are still there, it is our own damned fault.  Find the people who voted for the specific jackass you don’t like and explain to them why they should not do it again.  It’s on you.

I do, however, support term limits for Bureaucrats.  These are unelected individuals who are seemingly unaccountable for their actions.

This Administration calls them “Low Level” workers.

It is my belief that the vast majority of harm perpetuated upon the Individual Liberty and Freedom of the American people is performed by those who are employed by the Federal Government. These employees retain their positions while the politicians come and go. They are truly the ones in power and go largely unnoticed, and certainly unaccountable.

I would recommend a change in the way we look at term limits… there is no reason why all Government Employees can’t be handled as Contract workers. Their employment agreements should be Limited to 2, six-year, contracts unless they are in the Military or Security Services.

This approach would offer several benefits.

First, it would remove those entrenched personnel who have established a fiefdom on our dime.

Second, it would release a wealth of knowledge back into the private sector if their professionalism is of the caliber we are told it is.

Finally it would politically destabilize the Departments that have wrested too much control, and power, from our elected officials.

Problem Solved.  Or at least Sickness Reduced…

Now back to the “Low Level Workers”… are these the same Low Level Workers who left our Diplomat and his security team to die in Benghazi?  Are they the same ones who used our tax dollars to up arm Mexican Drug Cartels?  Are they the ones who wrote the ObamaCare bill no one read?

Is “Low Level Worker” just a euphemism for “Useful Idiot”?

I wouldn’t be surprised.

It almost makes one want to be sober.
