Truthfully, I'm quite baffled/humored by this latest suggestion. Having been a government employee for a number of enlightening years, and frightfully, learned to think (somewhat) like a government employee, I wonder, just wonder, if maybe we are totally wrong about conspiracy theories, mind-control, etc.- and some of these ideas are hatched out by just a bunch of dumb bureaucrats who are pitching for an Exceeds Expectations on their annual merit comp performance evaluation...if that be the case, my past experience would dictate, that the only way to handle this
"dead-wood" and their crackpot way of governing is to move them to a back office and give them a newspaper to keep them busy...(granted, we tried with Bush and failed miserably) It's all getting too absurd -People must scream
for the resignation/replacement of these officials -granted they'll be replaced with other losers, but, it will buy us time - after all, isn't that what this has come down to? Having said that, I believe it's the only hope for the return of even a glimpse of the American Way we settled into under Bill Clinton. If it is something more sinister, and it's stupidity along with evil, God(s) help us all!
