If 900,000 federal workers can be furloughed
as ´non-essential,´ why employ them?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

So far, so good. Just checked the backyard. No pieces of fallen sky yet. Hours into the partial federal government shutdown and it´s difficult to tell there is one. Save for the humorous desperation of TV folks trying to find something, anything that could be labeled calamity and blamed on those political toads in D.C.. So far, the great partial government shutdown of 2013 looks like a full bust. Like that Y2K apocalypse that didn´t happen. Or President Obama´s dire sequester warnings that went Poof! This faux crisis really has little to do with spending.

Been saying this for years. All the bureaucrats do is take our money for their fat paychecks and fat pensions, then mess up our lives as much as possible on the days they come to work. A pox upon them!

Obviously this author is clueless.

The non-essential designation is arbitrary.

This statement may be applicable in the Dept of Energy that produces NO energy or the Dept of Education that does NOT educate a single person, or the EPA that is a political machine doing the bidding of a criminal president...the list goes on.

Now take the DoD, defending the USA...who in that department is non-essential?

They´re "non-essential" because the programs they work for and the jobs they do have no funds as of today, so it is not essential that they work.

The only ones that should have their pay docked are the politicians and that should start with the president, they are the ones that can´t work together and got us to this pseudo state.

And Harry Reid calling Americans anarchist from the senate floor????? How pathetic is that ? He has to turn to name calling the American people because he can´t cope? So here we go....Harry, you are one pathetic ugly buzzard !

That´s the real question. Why employ the non-essential workers--welfare? Government bloating? I was expecting an article about the size of government. Maybe we need to furlough the headline writers or send them back to school.

All the Federal Parks are closed. How about turning over to the States, all those lands that actually belong to them and let the State governments run them. As for the alphabets: EPA, DOE, some parts of NSA, FISA courts, ATF and so on, close them permanently. Then you could start of the real work of downsizing the government.

If the 900K are not required neither are their bosses, so who would get the big bucks?
Why does the Air Force have so many Generals? Because every time a new aircraft is added, the infrastructure must be added to support it......Generals, Colonels, etc. Congress supports it to get more of a tax base in their various districts. It´s all a big shell game and taxpayers are the peas.

The American taxpayer is supporting a huge bureaucracy of departments that are unnecessary,overstaffed, duplicated, and unionized. This is a huge hole into which we pitch money every pay day. The whole structure
of our Fed government is so top heavy, it is a wonder it doesn´t fall over on its own. I long for the day a man or woman becomes president, and tackles this from the inside out. If we survive the present administration, that should be in the platform of the Conservative party for the next election. SMALLER government.

Hardly "non-essential."

They are a critical part of laundering taxpayer money: from the taxpayer, to the Treasury, to the employees, to their union dues, and back to the pols as campaign "contributions."

ObamaCare may or may not have met
enrollment goal by that fake deadline
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 4/1/2014 9:20:30 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration today will tout impressive enrollment numbers for ObamaCare with the confident precision that can only come from the knowledge that no one else is counting. No one else can count the numbers. Because the Obama administration controls access to all the numbers. It´s probably a coincidence, but that is exactly the way votes are counted by the Chicago Democratic machine. And if the Obama crowd is strutting for the media over enrollment numbers, Americans aren´t hearing more about his growing list of foreign policy embarrassments.

Late-night comedians and their writers pounce on the day´s news as their primary source to twist and distort into laughs. Russia, of course, remains a hot item following the "uncontested arrival" of its troops in Crimea. Reflecting the diminished approval of President Obama, the late-night shows have been aiming their laughs at him more. Even Jimmy Fallon, who kicked off his Jay Leno replacement tour with a Michelle Obama interview, has aimed some laughs at his presidential pal. Although he quickly returns with something barbed at Republicans.

Good morning. I’m Congresswoman Jackie Walorski. Today, I’m calling on President Obama — the Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces — to support H.R. 4031, the VA Management Accountability Act. I do so as a member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee. [Snip] We need this commonsense bill because it will empower the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to fire senior officials who aren’t up to the job. Without this real-world accountability, the VA has become the epitome of bureaucracy run amok.

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m Joe Biden. I’m filling in for President Obama, who is abroad. I want to talk to you today about the minimum wage and the overwhelming need to raise the minimum wage. There’s no reason in the world why an American working 40 hours a week has to live in poverty. But right now a worker earning the federal minimum wage makes about $14,500 a year.

President Obama, whose poll approval numbers hover weakly around 40% among Americans, met Thursday with Pope Francis, whose approval numbers among the same people are 76%. Now, you know why the Chicago Democrat sought the meeting. The two leaders exchanged gifts. The Vicar of Christ gave the ex-state senator a copy of his book "The Joy of the Gospel." The 44th president gave the head of the world´s Roman Catholic Church a box of fruit and veggie seeds from his wife´s garden. The first meeting of the new pope and lame-duck president was closely-watched because of the Democrat's concerted efforts to bring religious

By the time Barack Hussein Obama swore the oath of office with his hand on Abraham Lincoln´s personal Bible 1,883 days ago, he´d made so many promises to the American people that keeping track of them seemed like it would be quite a challenge. Turns out, tracking the public promises that Obama kept was really quite simple. He didn´t keep them. One of Obama´s most famous sunken promises was that his would be the most transparent presidential administration in history.[Snip] Now comes the Associated Press with a report card.

To the surprise of absolutely no one outside the Obama Oval Office, those Crimeans who voted in Sunday´s trumped-up referendum opted overwhelmingly to rejoin Russia. This as thousands of Russian troops occupied the Ukrainian province, while an even larger Russian army happened to conduct ´war games´ on Ukraine´s border. Obama, the former community organizer, again telephoned President Vladimir Putin, the former KGB colonel. Obama reminded the Russian he´d broken international law. Obama warned the Russian the referendum "would never be recognized by the United States." Bet that stung.

Good morning. My name is Bill Johnson, and I’m proud to represent Eastern and Southeastern Ohio in the House of Representatives. Four years ago today, President Obama came to our state and promised our seniors that his health care law would protect their benefits. He said this: “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. I don´t want to interfere with people’s relationships between them and their doctors." Now, the reality is, not only is the president’s health care law interfering with these relationships — it’s ending them.

As part of his desperate political plot to distract the country with something -- anything -- other than ObamaCare´s debacle and serial scandals, Barack Obama has been talking a lot about global warming. Forget about the Nov. 4 midterms, folks. The world is burning up. A crisis not to be wasted. Obama calls it climate change before his audiences because after this endless winter of polar vortexes and record snowfalls and ice cover, the word ´warming´ draws applause or chuckles.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union.

Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees.

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

WASHINGTON — LeBron James wants you to sign up for health coverage under Obamacare. So do Magic Johnson and Jonah Hill’s mom. Monday is (sort of) the deadline for Americans without employer-provided health coverage to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act — the White House extended it so that anyone who’s begun to sign up by Monday can still complete the process by April 7 — and the final enrollment numbers will be an important test for a law intended to expand access for the uninsured. It’ll also be a test for the White House’s high-octane sales
