My experience is hit or miss. Sometimes all the ladies are sitting in their seats, working or on the phone or doing whatever and never look up. You have to clear your throat, say excuse me or otherwise get their attention.

Other times someone (usually an older woman with blonde hair and glasses) gets up fairly quickly.

Most times I wait about 5 minutes or so to be helped. Not terrible, but they seem to "ignore" you unless you go out of your way to make your presence known.

They are all talking about Midlothian. It is called MIDLOTHIAN TOPIX. The city posted under their name, is where they are when they wrote it.

I never had a problem with them either.

But all these conservatives want the size of government shrunk - until they seeing the consequences of their talking points when they get implemented in the real world.

What do you think "shrinking the size of government" means?

It means getting rid of employees - which means then having fewer and fewer employees available to do the same amount of work.

When you get rid of employees by "shrinking the size of government", you run risk the risk of shrinking it too much and getting rid of too many employees and thus having too few left to do their jobs efficiently.

OOPS!

So the he next time you go to your village hall, the post office or the DMV and you have to wait: for a longer time ... in longer lines ... and your order gets messed up ... and you get some attitude from a guy who's now doing twice the work at the same or less pay?

Remember: YOU got what YOU wanted!

Hey ... ain't conservatism grand?

One of the stupidest posts I have seen in a while.

Shrinking the size of government does not have anything to do with eliminating secretaries and clerical workers in essential positions within basic government.
"Big Government" is when the government gets involved with things in American lives that they have no place getting involved in. We do not need government to regulate the size of a soft drink sold in a restaurant or diner.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/big+go...

When talking about shrinking the size of government and eliminating workers. It has to do with social services and federally run programs which are not essential to running government.

You clearly, do not have a clue on what you are talking about.

But you think you do. Its quite funny.

Hey look ... the racist, loudmouth punk is back!

Either the source of your remediality is inbreeding or YEARS of consistent practice at being, well ... you.

FACT: One of the things "shrinking the size of government" involves is eliminating government employees that work, say ... at a local village hall ... you inbred moron.

Now since you brought it up, let's talk about stupid shall we?

"When talking about shrinking the size of government and eliminating workers."

That's what us educated people call a "sentence fragment" you inbred moron.

"Its quite funny." should be "It's quite funny" with an apostrophe, as in: "It's quite funny when someone as uneducated as yourself starts lecturing others".

Get the difference? Or do you need pictures to help you out?

And don't even try blaming your phone again for the mistakes. That excuse didn't save you before and it won't save you now. Take some personal responsibility" that you like talking about so much and, in the words of Spermin' Stain, "Blame Yourself!"

See, you clearly do not have a clue on what you are talking about.
But you think you do. It's quite funny.

You should register your name so I can just pull up your profile, see where you've posted and just keep smacking you around after each one of your posts.

Now do you have anything else to say to me? Because I'll keep embarrassing the hell out of you over and over again.

Big government is a term coined to describe the size of federal government. Shrinking the size of government will not affect our secretaries because they are paid with village funds. Not federal funds. They are not federal workers. Obamacare and the federally paid workers pushing paper on that is big government. Obamacare is not an essential government service. Those are the people who would lose their jobs if our government was to get smaller. Not secretaries, paid by our village, doing essential work.

Your first post is pretty embarrassing. While your second is quite humorous. Going on and on about my poor punctuation while you have a misused quotation mark after the words "personal responsibility"
Kinda funny.

And I don't think that personal responsibility sentence is proper either. I think it should "Take some OF THE personal responsibility that you like talking about......"

I am not an English teacher, but I can say it doesn't read well.

We could sit here and pick apart all of our posts for errors because let's face it, we all make them.

Take you, Education is your friend.

You don't take a quote and end it with a period and then continue the sentence. Your sentence should have read differently, but your point was made regardless of the error. Midloguy30's point was made also, so why pick apart what he said?

I'm all for telling people whose posts are incoherent to rewrite them so I can understand and so that they might get their point across. That's a bit different from what you're doing here.

And further, midloguy30 is right when he says big government was coined for the feds not the local government. I can't see how his statements directly affect the outcome of our local village secretaries who by all accounts I've heard are over staffed and underworked/utilized. There are a couple of them doing the duties that ONE woman did for decades. How does that work? Usually you hear that older women/men in the workforce refuse to get with the times, but in this case that doesn't fly.

I hope that we can get back to what is important here and stop worrying about a few typos or grammatical issues.

What's important here ? That you had to wait an extra 5 min at the village hall to pay a bill? Like I said before at this point they probably know who you are and do it on purpose, it will give you something to whine about on Topix.

I think there are 2 points here. The first point is that there are more workers doing what less workers were able to do. Second point, made in an earlier post is that they are in no rush to help the people that pay them. The taxpayers

Know it all I wasn't "whining" as you put it. I simply answered the OP's question.

And for the record, not only do they know who I am, but I know whom they are. I make a point of knowing, and I've never tried to hide whom I was. The first time I met the mayor (Stephens) at the village green he asked who I was on Topix, and I told him to his face I was 5yr. I have never tried to hide behind my screenname.
