Framing the Dialogue

56 Chairs

I have mixed emotions about government workers.  Being one at various points in my life (including now) gives me some insight to the issues facing them/us.  I have only worked in a regulatory agency and my experiences with the DMV, USPS and other favored agencies to bash are the same as yours.  I have always had good experiences with the people who work at these facilities, but many folks seem to regard them as little more than misfit toys.  Most of my impatience comes from their customers who are not prepared when they get in line thus making the rest of us endure longer waits. 

Stamp of Disapproval

“Wanted. Young, skinny, wiry fellows. Not over 18. Must be expert riders. Willing to risk death daily. Orphans preferred.”

That job description for a Pony Express rider would not garner much attention today, but that was the genesis of today’s postal service.  The only qualifications that might match are the age requirement and the need for a driver’s license.  Unlike most people I have respect for the United States Postal Service.  Their troubles have been well documented by both liberals and conservatives as the USPS is a very popular agency to point to regarding the failure of government.

Arguing With Idiots

Arguing with idiotsThis is my third Glenn Beck book that I have read and it is by far the best.  As a person who pays attention to political issues, I found An Inconvenient Book and Common Sense a little basic though containing new information.   In Arguing with Idiots Glenn Beck provides a great deal of information for people in tune with politics and enough to blow the others away.  Glenn should have provided either some duct tape with the book or at least a coupon to buy a roll.
