    I did overstate my argument but I have seen so much of this in my life that I am extremely biased against gov workers. I have worked around Forest Service employees all my life and as a tax payer it is truly enough to make me sick. It quite literally takes 3 of them to do the job of one man doing the exact same job in private industry.

    The place I worked was full of retired Naval Officers and Chiefs....We were not career civil servants I am very proud for what we accomplished in my years employed there......If you did not due your job you were not around long.

Typical. Life is WAY too short for me to waste it on the likes of you.
    You post, you pay. It's all fair game. Those are the rules you have so little respect for.

    Are you one of those lefties who want to spend a lot of money as long as its not yours but the taxpayers......
    In other words you have no source meaning your statement has no credibility, MY SS benefits and pension"s" were earned over the 45 plus years that I worked. Are you one of those who want to steal from the monies earned by others. Incidentally just so that you are aware of it some righties feel they have a right to their SS and pensions.

    Well, there goes Medicare, I guess.

    Not taxable then, except for when it is.

    Have you read PPACA?

    Back to Medicare again.

    I don't think you've thought that through clearly enough. SS is insurance. It insures against the risks of old age, disability, and death. It operates just as any insurance program does. This isn't hard to figure out. It's just the way the cookie crumbles.

    Depends on whether you want to maximize profits of not. Protecting or augmenting the return on an investment that is already quite substantial the first morning a new hire walks in the door is only good business. There is no manufacturer's warranty involved here. If a new PC won't boot and your techies can't get it up to snuff quickly, you can send it back and get a replacement free of charge. Doesn't work that way with people. Not even close. The sooner you come to grips with that fact, the better off you'll be -- assuming you have anything to do with HR in the first place.

    And backed it up by practicing something other than what he preached. I see.

    That would involve the Peter Principle. Parkinson's Law states that work will expand to fill the time available to complete it.

    LOL!!! Think you could keep up with these folks over at CBO?

    The successful candidate will contribute to the full range of the division's responsibilities. Those include constructing and improving cutting-edge models that underlie CBOs policy analyses as well as preparing longer-term CBO studies, shorter-term memoranda, and testimonies. Analysts are also encouraged to turn CBO projects and independent research into CBO working papers and outside publications. Economists who have a broad range of policy interests are encouraged to apply. Special consideration will be given to candidates who have experience in building general equilibrium models and analyzing the effects of fiscal policy. Familiarity with micro data is a plus. Excellent interpersonal, writing, and quantitative skills, and the ability to communicate technical material in a clear manner are essential. Successful candidates will be able to work independently and complete work in a timely manner. Applicants should also have a Ph.D. in economics or a closely related discipline.

    This ad is NOT for a high-level position, by the way. Pretty much full professional worker-bee level.
