Federal Employees...now there's a place that cuts can be made, and money saved. Govt employees are the most useless, underworked, overpaid illiterates on the payroll of any biz. it takes 3 of them to do the work of 1 real person....worker 1 is always off on vacation, annual leave, one of the 19 govt holidays, sick leave, optional Mon-Fri....worker 2 does the work, wrong, and worker 3 has to come along and fix it. Fire workers numbers 1 and 2, and tell worker 3 he has 2 weeks vacation a year,like real people, and save all the money wasted on #1 and 2.
And quit hiring to fill diversity quotas, hire somebody that can do the work....if a g ay, hispanic, female, minority in a wheelchair can do the job fine, but don't hire them because of their diversity.

Lets start by taking away the pay raises that Obama gave to all of his flunkies. That could save thousands. Lets pull Obama's credit card for flying all over on our tax dollars, and some one should tell him he is NOT CAMPAIGING ANYMORE.

Lets start at the top and work down.

Bureaucrats are vital to serving the Autocrat Obama and we all must submit to their every demand for more and more and more of their neighbors hard earned money.

Lets fire the ones first that voted for Obama. They brought the problem on not only themselves but millions of Americans. Elections have their consequences.

points to ponder

California says it doesn't have anywhere near the doctors needed to be able to care for the expected inrush of obamacare medicaid patients

BUT

the federal gubbmint has added 15,000 new IRS jobs to make sure the deadbeats pay their obamacare fines.

Wouldn't the money for the 15,000 new federal desk jockeys been better spent sending 5,000 new medical students to medical school ?

IF you don't quit using logic, topix will throw you off the thread. It makes the liberals heads hurt.

For once I have to agree with the lunatic fringe "conservatives".

We have 800,000 DOD civilian employees- that's 1 civilian for every 2 active duty members.

Fire half of them and that saves the taxpayer over $25 BILLION every year.

That would STILL leave 1 civilian for every 4 active duty members.

There's no reason to ban same-sex couples from marrying.

Then give a single rational reason to prevent same-sex couples from marrying?
