If 900,000 federal workers can be furloughed
as ´non-essential,´ why employ them?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 10/1/2013 9:11:25 AM

So far, so good. Just checked the backyard. No pieces of fallen sky yet. Hours into the partial federal government shutdown and it´s difficult to tell there is one. Save for the humorous desperation of TV folks trying to find something, anything that could be labeled calamity and blamed on those political toads in D.C.. So far, the great partial government shutdown of 2013 looks like a full bust. Like that Y2K apocalypse that didn´t happen. Or President Obama´s dire sequester warnings that went Poof! This faux crisis really has little to do with spending.

Been saying this for years. All the bureaucrats do is take our money for their fat paychecks and fat pensions, then mess up our lives as much as possible on the days they come to work. A pox upon them!

Obviously this author is clueless.

The non-essential designation is arbitrary.

This statement may be applicable in the Dept of Energy that produces NO energy or the Dept of Education that does NOT educate a single person, or the EPA that is a political machine doing the bidding of a criminal president...the list goes on.

Now take the DoD, defending the USA...who in that department is non-essential?

They´re "non-essential" because the programs they work for and the jobs they do have no funds as of today, so it is not essential that they work.

The only ones that should have their pay docked are the politicians and that should start with the president, they are the ones that can´t work together and got us to this pseudo state.

And Harry Reid calling Americans anarchist from the senate floor????? How pathetic is that ? He has to turn to name calling the American people because he can´t cope? So here we go....Harry, you are one pathetic ugly buzzard !

That´s the real question. Why employ the non-essential workers--welfare? Government bloating? I was expecting an article about the size of government. Maybe we need to furlough the headline writers or send them back to school.

All the Federal Parks are closed. How about turning over to the States, all those lands that actually belong to them and let the State governments run them. As for the alphabets: EPA, DOE, some parts of NSA, FISA courts, ATF and so on, close them permanently. Then you could start of the real work of downsizing the government.

Why does the Air Force have so many Generals? Because every time a new aircraft is added, the infrastructure must be added to support it......Generals, Colonels, etc. Congress supports it to get more of a tax base in their various districts. It´s all a big shell game and taxpayers are the peas.

The American taxpayer is supporting a huge bureaucracy of departments that are unnecessary,overstaffed, duplicated, and unionized. This is a huge hole into which we pitch money every pay day. The whole structure
of our Fed government is so top heavy, it is a wonder it doesn´t fall over on its own. I long for the day a man or woman becomes president, and tackles this from the inside out. If we survive the present administration, that should be in the platform of the Conservative party for the next election. SMALLER government.

Hardly "non-essential."

They are a critical part of laundering taxpayer money: from the taxpayer, to the Treasury, to the employees, to their union dues, and back to the pols as campaign "contributions."

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation. In the adjacent Black Sea, a Russian military jet buzzed American naval ships, the high-seas equivalent of a drive-by middle finger.

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t.

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

There was plenty of talk in Washington this week about equal pay. The thing is — it was just that: more talk. As a woman who worked at McDonald’s to get through college…. as the mom of two young daughters … and as the elected representative of thousands of hardworking women, I have always supported equal pay for equal work. And if a woman is being paid less than a man because of gender discrimination, that is both wrong and against the law. The protections provided to women and others in the Equal Pay Act must be enforced to make certain there is no pay disparity because of discrimination.

Hi, everybody. Earlier this week was Equal Pay Day. It marks the extra time the average woman has to work into a new year to earn what a man earned the year before. You see, the average woman who works full-time in America earns less than a man — even when she’s in the same profession and has the same education. That´s wrong. In 2014, it’s an embarrassment. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. This is an economic issue that affects all of us. Women make up about half our workforce. And more and more, they’re our families’ main breadwinners. So it’s good for everyone when women are paid fairly.

For many years whenever the president nears any crowd, a Secret Service agent walks ahead along the rope line ordering everyone to keep hands out of their pockets where agents can see them. That´s less of a problem these days. Because the hands of most everyone in such locations are holding cellphones to take photos of the nearby celebrity. And if there´s a campaign underway requiring the politician to ingratiate himself, possibly a selfie with the big guy himself. It's priceless political PR -- and free.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
