Your Tax $$ at Work: Bored Federal Employees Watch Porn All Day

As if it weren’t enough that you were paying them salaries to interfere in your life, and letting them retire early on luxurious pensions that’ll keep them comfier than you are for as long as they live, now we hear that federal employees spend a lot of their time viewing pornography on their computers… because, they say, they don’t have enough work to do, and they’re bored ( http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/jul/31/feds-accept-boredom-lack-of-work-as-excuses-for-sur/ ). The Washington Times Headline says it all: “Porn-surfing feds blame boredom, lack of work for misbehaving.”

And you can’t fire them because Our Nation’s Glorious Leaders rely on public employee unions to fund their electoral campaigns.

But don’t worry. At the rate they’re going, Our Nation’s Glorious Leaders soon won’t have a nation to lord it over anymore. They’ve trashed our culture, debauched our national character, and are working hard to bankrupt us. Government by villains, kooks, and fools doesn’t seem like it’s turning out to be a good thing for America.

I don’t have any desire to view pornography. But how would y’all like to pay me a nice salary, with a nice pension, for playing chess and Mah Jong Garden on my computer?

P.S.–The link to the Washington Times article doesn’t work, of course. *sigh* Well, it’s a technology issue, and I can’t deal with it.

  1. Its a far reaching illness in America, and is not limited to bored government employees. 25 years ago I was doing computer support and network administration for a major corporations local offices. While some worked pretty consistently – it was appalling to me how little real work a few did. I was raised in that “sweat for an hour mowing the neighbors yard to get a dollar” era. I was used to doing something useful while on the clock. When you see someone spend 90% of their paid hours reading the newspapers, playing solitaire on their computers and such – it does burn you up. One person in particular was so far behind that they came in on evenings a few days a month to catch up. They would park their car outside, go in and turn on their office light, then leave, closing the door to their office. A spouse would pick them up and several hours later they would come back and shut off the light and drive away. Funny thing was – they did not boot their computer during that time to do a job they had to do on the computer. I could show their supervisor records of their login and logouts and prove they did not work. What did the supervisor do? They assigned a person to help this person a few days a month with the backlog. There were other examples – but still its a wide spread problem today. Kids work at fast food places – and while I am sure most earn their money properly, there are some who think they should get paid for just showing up. They find ways to not work – and make that a new career skill – how to look busy to the boss while doing little.

    1. This nonsense starts with public education. I once asked a fellow teacher if her students were telling the truth when they said she lets them cheat on quizzes.

      She said yes. “It’s easier that way,” she explained.

      Can I wake up now, please?

    2. A good friend of mine who went back to college and got his teaching credentials told me of a problem he encountered- turned out to be they expected him to pass children on to the next grade level even if they couldn’t read . He was a sixth grade teacher and you would think the 6th grade reading would be pretty much solid at that grade level. He made a fuss to his principal, who basically said we need to pass those kids to keep federal funding. He went to the, school board and complained, to no avail. Then they did not renew his contract.

    3. In with the bad, out with the good–that’s how all our institutions work, these days.

      Would you believe it? A hundred years ago, the teachers’ union consisted of normal people who opposed the education theorists’ wild schemes.

      Not so anymore.
