your tax dollars at work

Give a government agency a shit-pot full of money and tell it to go forth and do good. The agency will grow into a giant bureaucracry, the money will disappear and the problems they were supposed to solve will be worse than when they started. It never fails.

Just read this. The Civil Rights Commission has been a joke for years, with that flying dingbat Mary Frances Berry, self-appointed Queen of Sheeba, running the show. The woman is a racist and a certifiable lunatic, but she's also black, which makes her perfectly qualified for some kind of high-octane government job.

Deeply in the red, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights voted yesterday to conduct an audit of how it has spent its $9 million annual budget over the past several years.

The meeting came a day after commission Staff Director Kenneth L. Marcus told a congressional subcommittee that the agency had failed to pay $75,000 in rent last year and that employees who won an equal opportunity complaint against the agency had not received the $188,000 partial payment owed them.

Don't laugh at the corruption in the United Nations. We have plenty of our own right here. Do you find it ironic than an agency charged with the task of stomping on business and industry over any HINT of sexual harassment or racial discrimination won't pay the fine when its own dick gets caught in the wringer? I do.

That's why I like government so much. It's just so efficient. And so fair.

Amen.

She's the Mary Poppins of The Nanny State. That shit hole needs to be shut down. Now.

ORielly told a funny story about Mary Berry. He didn't quite know exactly who she was, but it turned out she is also now the only one of his guests to ever walk off his show - during itermission, when Bill gave her time to compose an answer to a question he kept wanting to know about. She just left instead.
