I'm sorry AXANAR PRODUCTIONS for your wrong choice. It wasn't that your choice of material was wrong it was that your choice of country for production was wrong. Next time choose to make jobs where they are wanted.
What if Trump decided to appoint "Ron Swanson" types to the head of each department with the task of making the departments less wasteful and more customer oriented?
Now back to DHS and Kemp: Trump should offer him a job as head of DHS, and tell him, "Put up, or shut up."
As anyone who looks into government should know, government is about government. It's about individuals building kingdoms to control power and money. It's about worker bees invested in keeping their jobs to support their families. (And finding, and keeping tabs on, love interests if they're a part of a spook agency.) It's about "public servants" that are fully invested into a system that works for them; It's their livelihood.
So Trump gets elected by the disenfranchised as a type of "Luddite clog" to break the government system, because it's not meeting their heartfelt needs.
(Of course anarchists are totally on board with this, because as their manifesto states, "A system must be destroyed if something better is to replace it.")
Working in government is weird. Many times you can get away with murder, because it's convenient and gets the job done. Getting the job done is job number one in government. There was a saying in my government office, "You can make any policy you want, but be sure people are going to go around, under, over, or through to get their jobs done."
In my mind this guy was good at his job, and his supervisors turned a blind eye to his actions. Maybe they knew, or maybe they didn't, but I can guarantee you that not one of his supervisors would admit to knowing anything about his actions.
How good of an government employee I'm not sure, but we will be able to tell soon, because the first job of any good government employee is to create your CYA file. I knew of some people who had many cabinet draws full of pictures, memos, emails, and all kinds of evidence covering their actions.
The cardinal rule of government employment is to never do anything unless you have it in writing. Those who don't follow this rule become scapegoats, and are crucified in the audits and cover-ups that are common in government.
Good thing they don't show these slides in NK. Dozing off gets a person a one way ticket to execution by anti-aircraft gun. (I assume the reason that that type of execution was chosen by Kim Jong-un was because he had just watched the movie The Jackal.)
How T-Mobile came up with the 26G is quite hilarious. From their Aug. 29th press release:
"Like with every plan, customers who use more data than 97% of our customers (currently over 26 GB per month) will have their usage prioritized below other traffic and may notice slower speeds during times and places of congestion. See T-Mobile.com/OpenInternet for details on data prioritization."
I bet the 97% would move that data cap a hair or two if 1.5Gb/s bandwidth was available over cell. The real question is would any cellular carrier really want to move the cap higher if the 97% wanted them to.
If governing means rising to your level of incompetence, then you're absolutely correct the government can govern itself.
Typically the government is just in the business of bustin' whistle blowers, and takin' money from the populace to fund their pet projects and pad their pockets.
In fact of all the government employees that I got to work with and know personally the ones who only had the authority to govern themselves and no one else are some of the hardest working people I know. Honestly those people make all of our lives better.
Under the heading it's not a bug, but a feature. The U.S. government has to maintain a certain level of incompetence in which to have a ready supply of scapegoat to which it can attach blame for the inevitable failures that are sure to happen and result in the general ill health and well being for many Americans.
