yeah, that's what its about, diversity...not somebody qualified to do the job, just somebody that fits the quota. That's why it now takes 3 govenmen worker to do the work of 1 real person. They are hired for their diversity, not whether they can do the job.

Pandering to cry babies is no way to run a country. It should always be the best person for the job.

Oh goody, now we can have a whole administration that works like the Obamascam rollout. We are so lucky to have so many unqualified people standing around touting their diversity. This is what Affirmative Action is all about. Is it 2017 yet?

You count on a democrat to tout diversity over ability.
We've got an Attorney General who arms foreigners so they can kill Americans.
We've got a Secretary of State who cannot keep the Syrian government from killing its own people, and provides economic assistance to America's enemies.
We've got a HHS Secretary who can't build a web site and is so clueless that she calls for an investigation to see what went wrong.
We got an FBI that can't stop a bombing even after they are informed it will happen.
We got an NSA that spends time spying on allies and citizens.
We got a President who sends terrorists back home.

Of course Obama touts diversity. He's got nothing else to show.

As a tea baggin' Transexual, I was wonderin' Just where are the TS appointees? Amanda Simpson in the FAA is the only one I know of. Since most TSes have college degrees, why aren't they being hired?
Dismissing us as incompetent won't wash. Lynnconway.com scroll down to transsexual women successes. We are found in every field from money management to airline pilots, from engineers to surgeons, from Lawyers to College professors. We are the most underemployed group in America.
My president was elected by dead people!

Once it was said, "Give me liberty or give me death".

Then it was said, "Give me liberty."

Now they just be say'n, "Gimme".

Yep, elections have consequences. Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your country can DO FOR YOU. <reverse of Kennedy quote>

It's good to see that the vacant Federal Benches are being filled. Now Cases can move forward in a more timely fashion.

Now if the President could get Congress to split the 9th Circuit, and possibly a couple of others, AND expand the SCotUS to 13 Justices, the docket backlogs could be cleared far more wuickly, and the Right to a speedy trial would come a bit closer to reality.
