Abolish Government Unions

April 20, 2017

Government Unions are at War with U.S. Veterans by fighting VA reforms!

WHO DOES YOUR REPRESENTATIVE SUPPORT?

The answer to out-of-control government bureaucracy is simple: ABOLISH PUBLIC SECTOR UNIONS.

After Jimmy Carter allowed bureaucrats to unionize, the cost and effectiveness of government brough our country to its knees.

While our Armed Forces are prohibited from collective bargaining, most civilian employees of the Department of Defense, Veterans Administration, Homeland Security, Justice, State, Education, etc. are unionized.

Federal Law says Unions are good for America. Do you believe that?

All these unions work hard to grow government and increase taxes.

Bureaucrats negotiate with bureaucrats for benefits that cost billions and allow bureaucrats to work less. For example: Government Employees might get a fully equipped exercise room and time off to exercise. Those who don’t like workouts can simply leave work and go for a leisurely stroll.

Collective bargaining would only be legitimate if it took place between bureaucrats and taxpayers or elected representatives of taxpayers.

One of my additional duties as a Federal Director of Operations was Chief Management Negotiator. I could not do my job affecting National Security while I negotiated with members of the AFL/CIO and AFFE.

If I failed to negotiate in good faith it would have been a Federal Crime even though I knew full well the taxpayers were getting taken to the cleaners.

This is just one reason 600,000 combat disabled Veterans have wated years and years for the VA to resolve their claims. I am one of those Veterans whose claim is more than seven years old.

All of the VA employees you read about, who are responsible for countless deaths, are still on the VA payroll because THEY CAN’T BE FIRED!

Unions were formed because of child labor, poor working conditions, black lung and over working laborers. NONE OF THESE HAVE EVER BEEN PROBLEMS IN GOVERNMENT!

Have you ever seen an overworked bureaucrat?

There is an old joke about how many union workers it takes to change a light bulb.

While union membership has declined in the private sector, it has soared in government including Federal, State and local while taxpayers are soaked at each level.

I do not have a union, Lobbyist or Congressmen looking out for my interests. All I have is a President who is under siege from all of the above.

President Trump is standing alone between greatness and collapse.

Don’t expect your spineless Representatives to stand up to the NEA, AFFE, AFL/CIO or any other union, much less abolish them.

God help us.

Drastic Action Required to Save OUR Nation!

June 23, 2013

My 34 years of military and government service taught me about the IG system. It don’t work! The IRS IG did nothing about 15 years of illegal refunds to illegal aliens at the same address!

IG’s work for the agencies, departments, brigades, wings and instillations and typically try to keep the agency’s from being embarrassed about mismanagement, fraud, waste and abuse.

Every government worker and military member knows that reporting FW&A is the career ending kiss of death. The whistleblowers get investigated, hounded and discredited. They become the focus just like Snowden.

There is an investigative organization with an outstanding unblemished record, the United States Government Accountability Office or GAO. They call a shovel a “shovel” and know what “is” means. I absolutely trust GAO Audits.

The GAO operates under Congress and can’t be fired by a rogue agency chief or cabinet member.

Clearly OUR government has become a loose cannon. OUR Tax money is being wasted. OUR security has been compromised. Federal workers have become abusive. OUR intelligence agencies have become ineffective. OUR military has become weakened. OUR welfare system is a black hole. OUR country is beyond broke with National Debt and Unfunded Requirements amounting to over $500,000 per family. That’s right, it would take over half a million dollars per family to get the United States out of debt. Even drunken sailors stop spending when they’re broke.

Here is what I am asking for: The most comprehensive audit in the history of the world. It should be led by the GAO and augmented with investigators from each of the 50 states.

Up until now we have been giving aspirins to OUR critically ill patient when radical surgery was indicated. Drastic situations require drastic actions. Are you with me?

It’s Not Your Courthouse Anymore

September 30, 2012

An elderly lady carried her tiny dog with her to the Courthouse to drop off a single sheet of paper. Airport Style Security stopped her, took her dog, handcuffed and arrested her and called the Humane Society to take her dog. Nazi Germany? Greenwood Arkansas? In this case it was Lexington, Kentucky. I remember when horses were tied up outside the Courthouse and men played dominoes in the basement. I remember when Nazi’s stopped citizens and checked their papers at will in Germany.

That same brutal treatment has come to America. Maybe you paid your taxes for 60 years and never threw a single piece of trash on the ground. You are now subject to unreasonable search at the will of the government. To pay your taxes, assess property, buy a marriage license, see a Veteran Service Officer or County Extension Agent in Greenwood, Arkansas, you must be searched by Armed Deputy Sheriff’s. The only way out is to be an illegal alien.

There are school shootings in Arkansas, rapes, armed robberies, kidnappings, stabbings, rampant manufacture and sell of narcotics and grand theft auto. None of those things happen in Courthouses. In the last 150 years there has been one crazed man who fired shots in the Crawford County Arkansas Courthouse. That is all the excuse necessary to suspend the Constitution and subject citizens to insane security. YOU WILL NOT RECOGNIZE AMERICA in ten years.
