*Federal Bureaucrats Are Overpaid-
Shrinking Size of Gov’t Is the Answer Says Administration:
The Washington Post opines this is nothing but “government bashing,” but this chart from my former colleague Chris Edwards should be more than enough evidence to show that federal bureaucrats have a big advantage over workers in the economy’s productive sector.
And there is plenty of additional evidence that federal employment is very attractive. For instance, it’s just about impossible to get fired from a bureaucracy.
Though defenders of the civil service sometimes make the preposterous claim that nobody gets fired because bureaucrats are such good employees.
“Maybe we should ask veterans whether they think all federal bureaucrats do a good job? Or we can ask non-profit groups whether they think IRS bureaucrats are top-quality workers? Or ask anyone who has ever tried to navigate the federal government? asks writer Daniel Mitchell.
We also know that the counties where most federal bureaucrats reside are now the richest region of the entire nation. Coincidence?
A study released today from GovPredict shows that more than 90 percent of political donations by Alphabet employees went to Democrats. This news will only amplify fears that everything we read, see, and hear is being controlled by tech industry employees with a left-wing political bent.
illegal immigrants get more violent:
The new numbers, reported by Homeland Security’s inspector general, could even be underselling the problem, investigators said, because the government doesn’t do a good job of tracking incidents, and agents and officers don’t always report them properly.
But the report does signal renewed danger particularly on the southwest border, where agents say a surge in illegal immigration in recent years generally correlates with growing violence.
Prosecutors, meanwhile, often refuse to bring charges or win cases against the perpetrators, the audit found.
Federal Judge Mark Walker issued an order Friday, calling English-language ballots a detriment to voters who only speak Spanish.
healer to decode his dreams:
“I have a long history, really going back to like when I’m four, of violence dreams,” the 73-year-old songwriter shared. “Those dreams, they got so intense a few years ago that I took a trip down to Brazil to see this healer, John of God.”
Simon, who is retiring from music, says he went to Brazil at the behest of friends.
As it turns out, John of God didn’t quite deliver. Simon said his healing comes from Christian teachings, but it was not a religious event.
“He didn’t really have anything that fixed it, if that’s the right word,” Simon said. “But I’ve been thinking about it more and more. Lately, and like in the last year or so, my dreams they are getting longer and more … they’re sort of explosions of anger sometimes come out.”
Simon feels he can sometimes gain control of his dreams, adding that the trip to South America didn’t have a dramatic effect on him, but allowed him to think in a more spiritual way.
in Broad Daylight:
The sexual activity took place at around 3:00PM “in full view of the public passing by on Ocean Drive and the sidewalk,” said the police, as reported by 4 CBS Miami. The police further noted that there is a children’s playground near the intersection of 13th Street and Ocean Drive.
The two priests arrested and charged are Fr. Diego Berrio, 39, and Fr. Edwin Giraldo Cortez, 30. Both priests reportedly are assigned to the Mission San Juan Diego parish in Arlington Heights, Illinois, which is under the jurisdiction of Cardinal Cupich. Also, Fr. Berrio is listed as a tribunal judge with the Archdiocese.
“‘Not doing that,’ Melania said in her Slovenian accent, dismissively waving her hand,” Woodward wrote in “Fear,” according to an excerpt published by The Guardian.
“‘No way. No, no, no,’” she added during Trump’s campaign.

The cause was a heart attack, his family said. Mr. Lawford, whose mother was Patricia Kennedy, a sister of John F. Kennedy, and whose father was Peter Lawford, the British-born actor and member of the Rat Pack, began acting in the late 1980s and had parts in television programs like “Frasier” and “The O.C.,” as well as in films including “Terminator 3.”
Understanding hurricanes, how they work, and what makes them go is still a very active area of research. They seem to be caused by a complex interaction between the ocean and the atmosphere. In order to form, they require a delicate balance of moisture, temperature, pressure and weather systems across almost an entire ocean. “They really are one of the more complicated phenomena because they bring together a lot of different process at once and they’re all important,” saysAllison Wing, a professor of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science at the University of Florida.
It got me thinking that if someone were to do a similar movie about the Middle East it could be called “Crazy Poor Middle Easterners.” Because, with a few exceptions, this region has never been a bigger mess, had more people fighting over who owns which olive tree, had more cities turned to rubble by rival sects and missed its potential so vastly.
The region of the world that should be naturally rich has made itself poor by repeatedly letting the past bury the future and the region that is naturally poor has made itself rich by letting the future bury the past.
