Your tax dollars at work

Leave a comment

I’ve been a government employee for 17 1/2 years now, and I can still be flummoxed by decisions that come down from above. Here’s the most recent mystery of upper echelons:
After two years of memos requesting a sidewalk due slippery grass in areas where she walked to get to her car, the county agreed to one of our dispatcher’s request, and a few months ago, installed one. A few weeks ago, someone fell off her spiked heels and went down. This someone wasn’t an employee, just a visitor. After a few more weeks, the sidewalk was closed, and yesterday it was removed.
I wonder what will happen if someone should fall down the stairs leading into dispatch?



FRC Freaking Out Again-This Time Over Whether Gay Seniors Exist!

The Family Research Council has posted another missive of disinformation, full of falsehoods, misdirection, deliberate misstatement of facts, and continued posting of disproven and discredited research.  All in the name of God, of course.  See the FRC’s page at

From FRC’s Washington Update page:

For HHS, a Senior Moment

Before we entrust Secretary Kathleen Sebelius with health care reform, maybe Americans should take a closer look at how her Department spends other taxpayer dollars. Even the Washington Post called Friday’s announcement from Health and Human Services (HHS) an “eye opener,” writing that the President’s “gay outreach continues.” A $1.4 trillion deficit aside, HHS has set aside a quarter million dollars to launch the first-ever National Resource Center for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Elders.
