|The skies over the Jefferson City last night|
There is so much waste in government. As a 30+ year retired government employee, I can make that statement with 100% certainty. And the waste is usually not in the rank and files. It is with the bosses who think they are entitled to perks and favor constituents. Get over yourself! If everyone would get down and dirty and give 100%, we would see results. And while I'm on the subject. I want to go on record that Government employees get a bad rap that they largely don't deserve. As with any business, there are those employees who don't do their job, are lazy, rude, call in sick when they aren't sick, take extended lunch hours or breaks, and in general are just lousy employees. But on the flip side, the majority of my co-workers are dedicated, hard working, individuals who gave 100% to their careers. They care about the service they provide. Government should be run like a business and it isn't. If it were, there would be fewer free-loading employees and the citizens would have a greater respect for government and the service it provides to all of us.

This post was supposed to be a simple picture of the sky and a wish to everyone that you have a nice weekend. And now look! I went on a rant. *shaking my head at myself as I hit publish*
Oh, and I do hope everyone has a great weekend!
