    The overall problem is that we have public employees writing and making decisions on contracts and pension decisions that can/could/might ultimately help them too (i.e.PERS). It would be better if people who have no skin in the game would be the moderators of the process. But people should realize that that may mean the union will strike when they don't get what they want.
    For example, teachers who don't like making $50K a year can do what everyone else does in that case...get more education, get a second job or do something else. (Not to pick on them but they are one of the largest unions)

    I'm not disagreeing with you at all. What I am saying is that someone called out government employees as the problem and you can not group all of them together into one big group. I have friends that have government jobs that don't make squat! have a bubblegumty retirement and get little to no respect from the general public.

    So in short I don't think any of us should make a big generalized statement looking at all employee's of the government because they are not all equal. If anyone really wants to break it down do I think some federal employees I.E. polaticians are over paid HE!! YES but our beloved military is also government employee's and they don't earn squat and do the most work.

    I agree with you. I even graduated from a libertarian college many years ago and have always thought the best jobs are government jobs. Don't blame anyone for taking them. They are steady paying jobs, have great benefits and can be that 30 years job, without the gold watch. I don't blame the workers themselves just don't care much for people with bad attitudes who admittedly are in every business.
    The bureaucracy is omnipotent and seemingly unstoppable. To try and stop it means that some people will lose their jobs and others will have to pick up the slack. Reagan had it right with the air controllers. That had to frighten all gov't employees. All empty job slots should be cancelled. Take the monies back from the budgets slated for those jobs and return it to the Treasury. Begin to shrink the size of the monolith it has become. Painful, yes. Remember..everyone is a conservative until it is their ox on the line!!

    I am moderate-right Dem and I shoot 1/2" MOA with my .308 Scout rifle. Those prejudices based on outdated data are the real stingers to watch out for.

    So the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard (government employees all) are one of the biggest threats to this country? :rolleyes: OK.

    I find cuck-coos from California a much bigger threat.

    - The Democratic Party fabricating a conspiracy, scandal, fight out of everything.
    - Kim Jong Un detonating a crude EMP anywhere over Japan, Hawaii or CONUS.
    - Self-entitled tantrum marchers in skinny jeans and douche knots.
    - Delusional anti-gun idealists/activists.
    - America's addiction to idolizing liberal celebrities with no f_ing idea.
    - Al Sharpton, and all career race-baiters.
    - Porous borders.
    - Multnomah County voters, Salem and Gov. Brown.

    If all of these actively corrosive entities simply disintegrated (or died slowly, screaming, alone, in the dark), this would be a far better land in which to live.

    And I agree. Just wish the politicians and the powers that be do less for me rather than more.

    So you just jumped all over a guy with 3 posts on this site. Do you think he's gonna hang around? I don't. Treating newcomers like that is not what we need here. How about you tone down the name calling and the vitriol?

    Haven't arrested anyone (or even had a badge) since 1993. Last thing I shot in my current Federal desk-jockey gig was a stapler! No FBI here.

    Which gives me an idea... After I retire (at noon on 7 July, but who's counting), that's exactly what I'll make a trip to the woods to do. I'll commemorate the moment in my own twisted way, and machine gun a stapler.

    Seriously guys, I apologize for my language a few posts back (since edited and cleaned up a little). It just makes me sick working downtown, witnessing these weekly tantrum marches, following the news and seeing the greatness of this State and Country under relentless, systematic attack by career politicians who make their livings crapping on our constitution and our rights. Sorry about one of the naughty names I chose in my rant.

    This has dissolved into a partisan thing when the real issue is the growing size of the bureaucracy of our government. It drives the agenda, it drives the budget (& the deficit), and it drives the politicians to believe that they must create new laws and programs to 'help' the people who might vote for them. They do not do things because it is a right thing to do. They foster people to be reliant upon the government, not themselves. POTG believe in self-reliance, most of the country does not. THAT is what we must fight against and explain to those who do not understand.

    When money is no longer important most will be lost.
