July 1st, 2016

July is a special month we get to celebrate the founding of this great country. Over the past decade we have seen many of our freedoms slowly being eroded away. We are facing issues that will affect our children and grandchildren. Having grown up in the 50’s and 60’s I feel as though I have lived the best years of history that America has had. For the decline in our country I don’t blame any one political party, but do hold our political leaders to blame. They have gotten into office for their self benefit rather than what is best for the country...It is our fault for electing and re-electing them back into office.

    How Government Works

    Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said,
    - "Someone may steal from it at night."
    So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job. Then Congress said,
    - "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?"
    So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies. Then Congress said,
    - "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?"
    So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One to do the studies and one to write the reports. Then Congress said,
    - "How are these people going to get paid?"
    So they created the following positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer, then hired two people. Then Congress said,
    - "Who will be accountable for all of these people?"
    So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary. Then Congress said,
    - "We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost."
    So they laid off the night watchman.
