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.


Well Okay Then…

The IRS has, for some yet unexplained reason, admitted to targeting Constitutional Conservative Groups.

Full AP Story Here.

The IRS has apologized for doing this.

Okay then.  I accept the apology and will move on. 

In other words… “that’s good enough for me”.

It would be hypocritical of me to attempt to politicize this story and suggest that the current Administration would use the IRS to intimidate and/or destroy those who stand opposed to their Socialist ideas.  It would be unreasonable to offer up any explanation for such an action which could be interpreted as ideologically motivated.

Any Objective observer must immediately acknowledge that had such a mission been promoted under a Conservative White House, there would be no outcry from the Left.

In addition, had it been discovered the IRS specifically targeted Liberal groups in the early 2000’s, a simple apology from George Bush would be accepted without a moment’s hesitation.

It’s time we all grow up.  “What does it really matter anyway!?”, as our former Secretary of State and Presidential Hopeful famously shouted.

Along the same lines, it’s time we all move on from:

Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Boston Terrorist Taxpayer Subsidies, Illegal Phone Taps, Illegal e-mail Access, Monetizing the Debt, Printing Money, Government Waste, Voter Fraud, Pigford…. a new “Housing Bubble“.

At least that’s what the Organizer, from Organizing for Action, told me to do when he called me on my free Government Phone.

I’m still waiting for Government Bourbon.  Then… they might have me, accept it would most likely taste awful… and be non-alcoholic.  The only upside is you would be buying it for me.

(PS. Do you think they would have fessed-up to this if they didn’t have to?  Me neither.  There is another shoe here… and someone is about to be beat to death with it.)
