"The Whoremongering United States Secret Service. The supposedly incorruptible."


This is a huge civil service problem.
Moreso, it is a socialist state model problem. Once the civil servants began earning more than their private industry counterparts they ceased to become our servants, and became our bureaucratic taskmasters. Especially given their immunity from consequences.... -- Velociworld: Shame, We Hardly Knew Ye

Your Say

The upshot of the Secret Service escapade will be that some SESer will mandate that all federal employees have to take some "training" like "Prevention of Human Trafficking" or the like. 100 per cent compliance will be required and training will last for probably at least 3 looooong hours. That's a lot of wasted time. At the base where I worked, the cost for such ridiculous training comes out of project codes (NOT overhead). Just add it to "Prevention of Sexual Harassment", "EEO", "Diversity", etc etc. Add to the incredible manhours that are wasted the costs of training materials that contractors assemble, and get rich on. Your tax dollars at work.

Anyone that thinks one or more of our institutions won't fail needs to pass a drug test. The people in our institutions think someone else will stop things before it gets "too bad" so they take advantage of the laxity and break off their own little hunk of corruption. Then once the corruption and incompetence is institutionalized we will see the watchdog or the rescue brigade is overwhelmed and it makes into the news.

Remember the people that passed McCain-Feingold. Many of them passed it while telling us "it's OK, the Supreme Court will throw it out." GWB said as much before signing it into law, rather than veto it.

The SEC won't detect and deter Wall St, Fannie and Freddie won't police the mortgage markets. The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp, and FDIC will be overwhelmed and you'll get a letter saying how much of their iron-clad guarantee they can afford to make good.

The military will likely be among the last to become degenerate in most respects, but by then we'll probably have bigger problems.

It won't get better until normal people make it very painful for the degenerates. Right now, the normal people are watching TV and expecting someone else to find and fix these problems. That's the attitude that allowed these problems. Tar & feathers or blood in the streets, it will be one or the other.

Excellent choice, let us start with the RINO's. Right there is the source of the problem.

I think of what it meant to me to have a security clearance, of how I took the oath seriously. Then along comes these chumps. Jail is where they belong. Pour encourager les autres...

The Praetorian Guard with zipper-control problems?!

Very bad sign. Very bad.
