There are literally thousands upon thousands or reasons why we needn’t allow our governments, of any size, to expand their power and scope given what we already know about their imbecilic ineptitude.
When was the last time that the government getting involved made anything any easier for We The People? Right after 9/11, we knee-jerked our way into the TSA, and now we have to spend 3 extra hours undressing in the airport just to travel to another part of our own country.
How about healthcare? Is anyone out there extremely satisfied with the abomination known as Obamacare?
Government efficiency is a myth, compounded by the fact that our local and federal agencies are required to adhere to some of the most absurd employment regulations of all time, creating a bloated and slovenly-operating but of taxpayer funded filth.
Just take a look at the DMV, for example, where the ship is running so loosely that one employee was able to get paid for almost 800 hours of sleep just last year.
A state Department of Motor Vehicles worker slept at least three hours a day on the job for nearly four years, slowing down processing times in an agency known for its long waits, a state audit said Tuesday.
According to the state auditor’s report, the DMV worker napped at her desk for an estimated 2,200 hours of work time between February 2014 and December 2017, costing the state more than $40,000. The employee’s name was not released.
The employee’s supervisors failed to discipline her, despite noting in her performance evaluations that she routinely slept on the job, the audit said.
And, just to reiterate the point of government stupidity:
In response to the audit, the DMV said it could not take disciplinary action against the employee because her behavior had not been properly documented. A warning was issued to the employee in March that she could be disciplined for future on-the-job naps.
I don’t know about you, but this is the sort of thing that would get any employee of mine fired immediately.
