HUD Secretary, Alphonso Jackson says he scuttled a deal after the contractor admitted to not liking Bush
Something is desperately wrong when federal employees (no, they are NOT Bush Disciples!!) act on behalf of a political party and are ARROGANT enough to openly ADMIT IT!!! My mother worked 37 years for the Air Force Civil Service. As a manager, she would never have tolerated that crap...and as a sworn government official, would never considered such a violation of her oath. Politics as a career is just not compatible with democracy any longer.
Term limits and real time for political, white collar crimes...and while we're at it, let's seize all their property like we do drug dealers (big corporations also...that's why these companies have Boards of Directors -- to decide if they will operate as criminals or not! No Mystery...a choice). If by democracy's good graces one can not make a decent living and chooses another course, then he/she/it certainly should not be rewarded for robbing it.
I have first-hand experience donating money to a candidate with his guarentee that we agree on the issue, but given the opportunity, he voted a lie (the Ohio election butt-f*ck of minority voters) that might give him favor in the upper eschelon of the Democratic Party. His challenger is even more disgusting. Politically I think 2006 could be a very disappointing year. I don't like anybody.
I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
5 U.S.C. §3331
Some selected oaths our appointed, elected, or just hired federal employees must take upon acceptance of their responsibility to the American people and the Constitution in exchange for decent wages, benefits, and other civil/human rights.
