  • Over paid public employees
    Reader11722
    Useless, overpaid public employees, yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights. They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like "America Deceived II". They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you. They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars. Impeach Obama, support Ron Paul. Last link of "America Deceived II" before it is completely banned: http://www.amazon.com/America-Deceived-II-Possession-interrogation/dp/1450257437

  • Ever Thought About Moving

    to another country? Sounds like that's what it would take for you to realize despite our problems, we are still the best on the planet.

    Ron Paul has great ideas to fix this country. But still get out there and vote for Romney... Gotta get a new face in the white house.

  • "Ron Paul has great ideas to fix this country"?

    Really? In the age of the Internet, and suicide bombers willing to fly jetliners into skyscrapers, and 'superbugs' immune to antibiotics, Ron Paul says the answer is to take the country back to the 1950s? You cannot be serious! To see what that really would be like, take a trip to Havana, Cuba sometime.

    Not interested in taking America into the past. Minorities faired poorly in AMerica during the 1950s.

  • how is it a violation of your rights??
    opalka10
    A "violation"?? Really? If you figure a 40 hour work-week, minus 10 Federal holidays (like most everyone gets) plus 4 hours of vacation time earned every 2 weeks.....that's not a "violation", that's "normal". The private sector has people working a lot of overtime, and that's your difference. Facts matter.

  • Let me be sure I understand this
    FERS Fed
    The Heritage Foundation used a survey of 1,776 federal employees as a representative sampling of about 2,776,000 executive branch employees (in 2010, according to OPM) for this 'report'? And that passes for 'analysis' at The Heritage Foundation? Man, I gotta get me a job there!

  • Not Useless and Overpaid - statistics skewed.
    anonymous florida
    Where did the Bureau of Labor get there statistics that the Heritage foundation (a biased foundation) based their opinion on? I work plenty of extra time that is not documented, as do my peers at work. There are others, of course, who do not, just like in any workplace. And, yes, I have worked in Federal jobs, in corporate jobs, and in small businesses, and in retail. And, what levels of experience and skills are we comparing. As for your diatribes... President Obama has not started any undeclared wars. TSA is working to prevent harm to the U.S. What is America Deceived II? I resent you stating that I am a useless and overpaid public employee. I work plenty hard despite difficult bureaucracy and lack of decent facilities and equipment, and too much work created by congress and our headquarters.

  • They smoke more than an month a year away.
    PPRN News
    http://www.prepperpodcast.com/social-security-administration-letting-tax-dollars-go-up-in-smoke/#ixzz1saCSuzqe From the article: "At the end of a two week pay cycle, 7.5 hours are spent by a smoker away from the workplace. This means that though they are paid from January 1, 2012 until December 31, 2012, they only at their desk until November 29, 2012, or 4.8 weeks lost due to excessive breaks. And this is only assuming they take 3 extra breaks, and not the 5 extra breaks observed by Pat and many others. The extra breaks, if consistent, means nearly 7 weeks of lost time, or they work at their desk until November 15, 2012 and get paid for the full year."

  • Over Paid Public Employees
    bobonnit
    The enemy of the average taxpayer is not the "1%'er" that "doesn't pay their fair share of taxes" but is the public employee union member. They are pushing cities to bankruptcy across the country with their pension liability and unreasonable demands. Anyone who has to deal with these people knows just how well they do their jobs. Lazy, shiftless, incompetent, acting entitled, arrogant and many who were hired under affirmative action programs are what we have. Time to break the backs of the public unions and make these clowns work like the rest of us, get paid like the rest of us, and pay for their own retirement like the rest of us. Once Obama and the Kleptocrats are out of office we'll have a new world order.
