    What incentive is there for government employees to be caring and competent about their work as long as there are no consequences for being lazy and sloppy?

    He appointed more than a dozen lobbyists after saying he wouldn’t. But he did issue a waiver for them each time. That’s a Democratic trick. Issue a rule or law to make you appear ethical, then quietly waive the rule every time you want to be unethical. When the House passed Pelosi’s “Pay As You Go” rule years ago, they announce with great fanfare that the government was now going to live within its means. However, they immediately waived the rule for the next bill (and just about every bill afterward). It was all for show, just as the lobbyist rules are now.

    How can the OMB reverse an executive order signed by the President? Did Obama secretly sign an authorization for the OMB to do this but is letting them take the heat for it? If not, the OMB is acting illegally. The executive order explicitly orders “the heads of executive departments and agencies not to make any new appointments or reappointments of federally registered lobbyists to advisory committees and other boards and commissions.” It doesn’t allow for an exception, so how can the OMB invent one without the President amending the order or issuing a new one?

    The only thing Gaza would do with Iron Dome technology would look for ways to fool it so they could kill Israeli civilians. They have no interest in protecting their own citizens because then they wouldn’t get sympathy and financial support from the outside world. If they had any interest in protecting their own civilians, they would have built bomb shelters instead of building tunnels into Israel.

    “The controversy is centered on an investigation of the CIA’s interrogation and detention practices after the 9/11 attacks.”

    In other words, Obama’s CIA illegally searching Senate computers earlier this year is Bush’s fault.

    Transparency for this administration has always been about blaming Bush and nothing else.

    Does this new bill solve any of the real problems at the VA? One whistle blower doctor revealed that he could not schedule an operating room after 2:30 in the afternoon because everyone wanted to leave work early every day. Another whistle blower revealed that psychiatric doctors refused to see patients after 2 PM. Apparently, they felt they had the right to go golfing on the taxpayer’s dime like their boss. If the new bill doesn’t require healthcare workers to work full time for their pay and bonuses, things are not going to change. Hiring more doctors and workers will only allow them to knock off even earlier in the day while costing us a lot more. I just don’t have confidence that throwing all this new money at the problem is going to solve anything. Government has no incentive to be efficient, especially when the union is applying constant pressure to be less efficient.

    Surprise, surprise, the left hand has restored what the right hand took away. You would think a bill that passed 426-0 would stay on the books for more than a month. But it’s the people’s money they’re playing with, not their own, so no big deal. It seems that everything they do is for appearance only so they can claim they did something when they actually didn’t. They know 90 percent of their voters won’t bother to fact check them. That’s the kind of government we will continue to get until people wake up.

    When are negative things about a person included in an obituary? It usually written by family and/or friends. Why would they do that to a friend who just died?

    “…the rule should not be seen as economically significant, since it believes it would cost less than $100 million.”
    Only Congress can authorize spending of tax money. If Obama wants to do it without congressional approval, he has to pay for it himself. Then we will see if he still thinks $100 milllion is not “economically significant.”

    “[Eschliman] expressed an opinion in his personal blog that in no way reflects the opinion of the Newton Daily News or Shaw Media,” Rung wrote.”

    Would Rung have fired Eschliman if he had expressed the opposite opinion, one that was in favor of the gay agenda in his personal blog? I think not. Free speech has become a one-way street, which is exactly the way progressives planned it.

    “Priefer has vehemently denied Kluwe’s claims.”

    So why did they suspend him for 3 games? Did they find another witness? Or did they just take Kluwe’s word for it even though the investigation found his other claims to be either exaggerations or outright lies? Kluwe is clearly disgruntled and untrustworthy. This doesn’t sound like innocent until proven guilty to me.

    So people should just walk away and continue to allow federally funded facilities to violate the law? We should do nothing to stop them from discriminating against the religious right while using our tax money to do it? If that’s your advice, maybe you should just zip it. Obviously you don’t yet understand that evil triumphs when good people do nothing.

    Actually, it’s even worse, they got bonuses for not doing their jobs.

    If this story is “just impossible to comment on,” why did you waste our time with your meaningless comment?

    They could have gotten away unharmed but, instead, called the police to report having their feelings hurt by warning shots interrupting them in the middle of their assault. What a couple of maroons!

    You’re so right, Tuttle. The ancient Greeks, Romans, and Europeans never maimed or killed anyone. What’s it like to always keep your head inside your Tuttle shell so you can live in your imaginary world and never have to face reality?

    Of course Mitchell owes $80,326 in real estate taxes. The money was stolen. It was the one-armed man who done it.

    “Putin is a little bit smarter than that,” the former Texas Congressman told Newsmax on Friday.”

    I would urge Ron Paul to use “caution” before making such a judgement before all the facts are in. It could end up making him look very foolish.

    “The weaponry used to shoot down the plane may well have come from Russian sources, Paul admitted…”

    So, according to Ron Paul, if I give loaded guns to children, I am totally blameless if they shoot someone. Who would you blame, Ron? What if Russians give a nuclear weapon to terrorists and they use it to wipe out a city, would the Russians be blameless for that too? Ron is a blithering idiot!
