Thank-you my friends for your understanding, happy reading? 🙂

Just when you gave up on congress

By now you must be feeling what I have been feeling for many years now?

“What’s the use, let’s all just give up and allow the

CEO-Train to run over us”!

Then out of the blue comes a 3rd party member “HERO “making history at the expense of the two bully political parties!

It’s not Superman, Batman or Ironman, but an old poop with a very young attitude!

Today’s News

Global Warming The U.S. Senate has agreed that global warming is occurring, but most Republican members, now in the majority, refuse to admit human activity as a cause. An amendment by Sen. Sanders would have put the Senate on record recognizing that devastating effects are already evident and only “a brief window of opportunity exists before the United States and the entire planet suffer irreparable harm,” the Bennington Banner said in an editorial.

I wasn’t going to do this however? This is Florida you know! When I first started visiting this state some years ago I notices that whenever something strange turned my head while talking with a Floridian, I would get this same look and the same statement without an explanation? “This is Florida don’t you know”?

The first dozen or so times I just let it pass.

Now after more than 15 years later,  ‘I get’!

However, if you have ever seen the movie, City Slickers? Like Curly (Jack Palance) said, “You have to find it out for yourself” http://movies.msn.com/movies/movie/city-slickers/

Senate Bill 182 and House Bill 223


Identity of government applicants shouldn’t be hidden

Senate Bill 182 and House Bill 223 are bills introduced in the Legislature to “hide” the identity of persons who apply for high government positions such as university president, provost or dean, and are not what open government is about. These are not private jobs. It raises suspicion. Is this really something with which the Legislature needs to concern itself?

The sponsors say they are concerned that applicants would hesitate to apply if their ambitions were known.

Really? Don’t you think their employers know they have ambition?

I can tell you of headhunters, recruiters and agents who would plant that information as a hook to get better compensation and longer contracts for their client. It happens all the time.

Where is the line to be drawn for such a cloak-and-dagger government process? At the secretary who wants to apply for a job or only the government’s top jobs? Moreover, why should lower-level jobs be treated with such disdain? Wouldn’t the same exposure jeopardy apply to any person currently employed? Why would not the same “chilling effect” be present?”

If candidates are superstars and want to make a move, the fact of their indispensability should be the reason the current employer would want to know that and try valiantly to retain the superstar, not dismiss him or her.

If you are afraid of losing the position you now hold, do not apply. If you think you are so beloved by your current employer, do apply.

These bills are bad government, bad for the taxpayer and not in the spirit of open government.

They should not be enacted.
