Newest replay of the ‘..so that this doesn’t happen again’ and ‘..I’m not here to ‘Cast Blame’..blahblah..more interested in ‘Lessons Learned’ salvo..

Our countrymen are raising their voices in unison lately aboutthe course the country is being taken, the prevalence of hiring incompetent, irresponsible, dead-wood personnel, from the top down, and are not going to take it anymore. Americans declare they are tired of incompetent personnel who do nothing but bloviate, fill a room with hot air, lecture and pontificate over-and-over again the same tired, worn, talking points handed out by the arm-up-the-back-moving-the-mouth cabal, who continue to blow smoke up our arses as they proceed their pickpocket enterprise while doing damage control, will not be tolerated.  It seems the only thing government does proficiently is to pickpocket we Americans while curtailing our civil liberties.

When did the protocol of ‘not casting blame’ after horrendous systemic failures by top elected officials, so-called experts in their field, morph into the present weasel ways of ‘lessons learned’? I have not forgotten the shock many Americans felt when the press exposed a large segment of federal workers in top positions resorted to resume-padding and false claims of university degrees in order to gain employment in the government.  I wonder if this chicanery exists today; it seems we have seen an inordinate number of incompetent, unethical behavior coming from those seeking top jobs with the government.  We’ve seen recently a crop of like-minded unethical people being nominated to fill top positions within the over-expansion of power within the coveted presidential circle, and beyond.

What in the world has our government been doing for the last 8 years in the area of homeland security?  What has the government been doing with the unfathomable amount of money requested and granted for an over-haul of our national scurity infrastructure with a focused eye on security from terrorists? Didn’t the 911 Commission lay down recommendations and necessary mandates that were supposed to be put into place shortly after the Commission’s final report? Let’s be clear about this, didn’t the government request more monies, more agencies, more man-power, and more law enforcement databases to deal with this issue?  Did I hear the president say today that those who were asleep at the wheel will be held ‘accountable’?  He isn’t going to let our ‘open’ society, freedoms and way of life be impacted by terrorists!  Soo-e, such strong words coming from our president about ‘accountability’ must mean that finally, finally, some heads will roll!!!

NOT.

Did the rhetoric espoused by John Brennan, White House counter-terrorism advisor, Janet Napolitano, U.S. secretary for homeland security, and Robert Gibbs, White House press secretary,
give you a sense of deja vu?  A feeling of disgust?  A final realization that government is about personality and image over substance?  And now, action, as well?

AGAIN, I ask, what have they done with our monies for these past 8, eight, as in 8 effing years!!!!

How many times are the government silly sausages of sanctimoniousness going to reinvent the (national security) wheel!?!
