Skip to comments.A PSA for executive branch bureaucrats

Hi! Are you an employee of the State Department? Treasury? Defense? Justice? Interior? Agriculture? Labor? Health & Human Services? Housing & Urban Development? Transportation*? Energy? Education? Veterans Affairs? Homeland Security? Commerce?
Wow. I didnt actually think that Id be able to find shenanigans going on in the Commerce Department. Aside from the Census, it doesnt really do all that much.
anyway, if you are a member of this or any other government agency, please take this test. Please look around your desk Monday and see if you can see anything that will make you go Man, if Darrell Issa ever hears about this one then the fecal matter is going to impact the oscillating blade. If you do see anything like that, you would be well-advised to make sure that an Obama political appointee has signed off on your actions. In writing. Three copies: one for your files, one for the appointees and one for next years House Oversight Committee hearing.
Because theres a limit to how many pardons the administration will sign, and never mind how many they can sign.
PS: Ive given this advice before, I think. Only, its really good advice (said he, probably arrogantly).
*Admittedly the most of a reach.
From experience... a bureaucrats arrogance usually shows no bounds. Why? Because it’s never their fault; “It was a policy that I was told to implement”. Who told you to implement it? I received a memo/department instruction/my supervisor told me to and I followed my instructions. Yada, Yada
Until it is proven by real action or punishment that an employees actions are their own and that they are totally responsible for them, will this blind following of “orders” stop.
