GSA Administrator Taking The Fifth

Jeffrey Neely, the Government Services Administrator that apparently was responsible for spending $820,000 on a lavish Las Vegas Conference for 300 GSA employees, is planning to take the Fifth rather than testify before Congress.  Neely has been subpoenaed so he must appear; but he does not have to incriminate himself.  However, if this character had nothing to hide, why is he going to take the Fifth.   Usually, when someone takes the Fifth, it is because they know they are going to be charged with a crime.  Let's see what happens. 

The government is full of crooks, including many serving in Congress; yet few if any ever go to jail.  Most are never fired for their transgressions; just reassigned to another department.  And, even though many government employees receive compensation and benefits that is 50% higher than is common in the private sector, there is no accountability, or real performance evaluation.  Once you get a government job, it is probably for life no matter what your performance. 

There are currently 2.65 million federal civilian employees and that number continues to grow under Socialist President Obama, who is adding tens of thousands of bureaucrats to intrude into all facets of life with more regulations and government control.  Like in George Orwell's 1984, BIG BROTHER is watching everything we do.  Computers allow for even more BIG BROTHER involvement in our daily activities.  BIG BROTHER Obama is a threat to our personal liberties, like never before, as the President signs Executive Orders almost daily to create even more regulations that will not be enacted by Congress.  

In the meantime, we have the recent GSA Scandal.   It was President Harry Truman who kept the slogan on his desk, "The Buck Stops Here".   Obama does not believe in the concept of personal responsibility for him, or his PEEP's.   Whenever anything goes wrong under Obama's watch, Obama blames Bush, acts of God, other countries; anyone but himself.  

The GSA Scandal happened on Obama's watch.  In the short term heads need to role.  Obama should fire any GSA employee involved in this fiasco.   And, then in 2012, we should FIRE Obama since he has failed so miserably on all counts.   We need to make Obama a one term President to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States.  Obama has to go and the sooner the better.  This Blogger is counting the days to election day next November.  It just can't come soon enough.
