LETTER: This is how government works under Democrats

To the Editor:

You can’t fire anyone anymore. That’s right, no matter how badly they mess up, you have to keep them on as employees. If one of your workers leaves the gas on for the oven in the kitchen and your business blows up, too bad. No matter how badly they do the job you hired them for, there is no choice in the matter. The worst thing that you can do to them is put them on paid leave for a while and when they come back, you can transfer them to another branch. I’m not joking.

Sound familiar? It really should, because that is how government works under the Democratic Party. Think I’m joking? Think again about this because I am deadly serious. If you ignore the security of an outpost of the United States of America and people die as a result, you might get a slap on the wrist. They will just let you retire and give you a medal saying how well you did the job. They will never bring up your shortcomings or talk about the destruction left in your wake. Even if you allow weapons bought in this country to escape your grasp and then be used to kill American law enforcement officers, you should never, ever, admit wrongdoing. You should just go on about your business and call the other guys racists and maybe even blame it on Bush.

The only prerequisite to make you eligible for this momentous gift is to “act like it never happened.” That’s right, pretend that woman’s son didn’t die. Pretend that you didn’t arm Mexican drug lords with weapons that they could not have gotten anywhere else. You didn’t ignore your marriage vows in the nation’s highest office. Just close your eyes, click your ruby slippers together and repeat after me, “I did not have sex with that woman ...”

I just sent my résumé to the Democrats, but I know I won’t get hired because I have a conscience. I have this silly notion that if you screw up badly enough to be on the evening news, especially if people die because of your ineptitude, you should be fired at least.
