(Sex Poodle) Al Gore: Feds Have America’s Back
Govexec ^ | 5/13/13 | Kellie Lunney

Civil servants always will have the “American people’s back” despite dysfunctional politics, former Vice President Al Gore told federal employees on Monday.

“I have never lost faith in you, the career people who keep this thing going in spite of all curveballs thrown in front of you, the latest being the sequester, well, the latest is -- what’s the date today?” the head of an initiative to reform government during the Clinton administration told a standing room-only crowd of federal employees at the Excellence in Government conference, sponsored by the Government Executive Media Group, in Washington.

**SNIP**

“Workers know, they understand the problems better than managers do. The people who are closest to what needs to be fixed know best how to fix it. Now, the problem is, they have learned through many years of experience that somebody who sticks his neck out might get his head chopped off,” the former veep said, referring to government’s traditional aversion to risk-taking and risk-takers.

“The people who work in the federal government know better than anyone else what is wrong and how to fix it,” said Gore, who spoke at the first Excellence in Government conference in the 1990s.

Holy crap on a cracker.

The left is as out of the closet as they possibly can be. They are showing us what they truly believe and want: government control of everything in the name of efficiency and “fairness.”

Sounds like "Fat Al" is still the delusional twit he has always been. Completely out of touch with reality...still.

You know he is specifically referring to Janet Reno, a civil servant that surely had no idea how to fix government by cracking down on making illegal fund-raising telephone calls from the White House as did the guy in the oval office with the probing cigar.

--In a bizarre statement to police, the Oregon woman who claims that Al Gore fondled and groped her during a massage session described the former Vice President as a giggling "crazed sex poodle" who gave a "come hither" look before pouncing on her in a Portland hotel suite. In a taped January 2009 interview with cops, the 54-year-old woman, a licensed masseuse whose name has been redacted from police records, read from a lengthy prepared statement that detailed her alleged October 2006 encounter with Gore at the Hotel Lucia. Excerpts from the Portland Police Bureau transcript of the 2009 interview can be found here.

As an aside, can we just stop calling them civil or public servants? Who are they ‘serving’? They make more money on average than those in the private sector, and their primary motivation is not to serve the public, but to support politicians who will keep the gravy train going.

I remember when this jacka$$ game to Houston one time to present one of those phony awards to a federal agency for outstanding work. My boss, the US Marshal, made me go because they needed an audience there. We sat on the 3rd row, in the very center.....I never applauded once and certainly never smiled. When we left and got in the car, he said “why didn’t you ever clap?” and I responded, “hey you ordered me to attend, but you didn’t tell me I had to be happy about it”.....he cracked up!

When is this economic terrorist going to be thrown in jail? First off, putting aside his climate hoax that so far to date has netted him $300 million in stock schemes, isn’t attempted rape a crime? Did he or did he not attempt to rape a masseuse? So what is this economic terrorist doing waltzing around a free man?

The feds watch America’s back, because they are too cowardly to try to stick in a knife when they are being watched.

Were you allowed to ask the economic terrorist Gore questions? I would have asked him how one can make a $300 million dollar fortune like he did in 10 short years while unemployed.

author of “The Great Money Binge: Spending Our Way to Socialism” (Simon & Schuster, 2009).

7 May 2013
The Wall Street Journal Asia
BY GEORGE MELLOAN Mr. Melloan, a former columnist and deputy editor of the Journal editorial page, is the

‘Public Choice’ and the IRS Harassment Campaign

” This thought occurs because one of the instructions at the IRS for examining tax-exempt status was to target groups critical of “big government.” Or in other words, groups critical of the IRS itself, with its expanded mandate under ObamaCare, and all of the other bureaucracies that comprise that vast conglomerate called federal government. Are the bureaucracies fighting their own war against the taxpayers independently of the political class?

That’s not a particularly farfetched idea. “Public choice” arguments long ago made a compelling case that government employees are no different from anyone else. They work to further their own interests. Like employees in any industry, they have a financial and psychological stake in promoting the growth of their organization. Growth means more promotions, better pay and more personal power.

Moreover, public employees have means of promoting growth not available to toilers in private industry, who actually have to produce something they can sell. Government workers only have to find a “problem” that needs their attention, publicize it with the help of the press, and marshal special interests to help them get a budget. Even if they were not specifically instructed to do so, it wouldn’t be hard for IRS employees to persuade themselves to stiff-arm activists who want to cut the size and power of government. “

Yes,you are quite justified castigating me for not utilizing Google to derive the explanation. I do use Google all the time to do just his very thing. Explaining why I hadn’t done so in this situation is to tell you that I’m flat on my back with two herniated discs not having an easy time making use of my computer a painful, difficult process. Sorry to have troubled you.

Al Gore’s right on one count - the corrupt liars in government unions have Gore’s back. And Clinton’s and Obama’s... they’re ‘enforcers’ - a goon squad. But they do more than have Gore’s back - they also bully traditional American citizens - traditional Jewish groups - conservative Hispanic groups and traditional Christians.

How charming. Creepy little liberal thugs.

And our biggest threat to them? That when we get back in power we’ll act like them. Not that we could be jerks on that level, but we could threaten to treat them the way they’ve treated us.

Anyone who’s spent time working for the fed, in any capacity, knows how overly populated the government is with the stupid, the lazy, the obsequious (I think whatever you think, Boss), the apathetic and the vicious. Occasionally, there are good people, but they’re not the norm. The Peter Principle reigns supreme.

And as the percentage of total US population who are employed by the government grows, there will be fewer and fewer good people found to do the non-work.

Gore’s a perfect example, particularly since he never had to pass a background investigation.

He was given the nickname after an incident in which he was exposed trying to get a “special” from an outcall therapeutic masseuse.
