My goodness! Goes to show sequester is no problem since these folks are being paid during this most dire situation. Most likely, overtime will be requested to make up for the lack of work done by these non-essential people during the pressure crisis and quite likely some of it will be approved. But it would be interesting to know how many non-essentials went home at this base that is pretty non-essential in its own right.

dingleberry 11 months ago on Battle over Phoebe North stalling growth

The uncertainties of Obamacare far outshadow uncertainties of the impact of the Phoebe transaction on local growth. The concerns over medical care costs locally are unchanged. Local growth is perhaps much more impacted by the sad state of the educational system, the crime rate, the high property tax rate, and the overall impact of the local poverty/welfare system . What are the reasons commercial activities would want to come to DoCo when other locations have more positives and higher quality of life?

Well John, perhaps it's getting hard to catch fish when we rank up near the top in all negative categories of things measured. Kind of puts a damper on what others see as quality of life, don't you think? Why don't we let you take charge of the EDC and let's see what you can troll for successfully.

dingleberry 11 months ago on Bishop urges reconsideration of postal centers

Congress has kept USPS tied to its apron strings all the while claiming it is time to grow up. Do you really think USPS can do what it wants without asking Congress "mother may I"? All that said, any organization with quasi-government ties is not too likely to achieve much success. Congress dumped USPS years ago primarily because of the large number of vocal workers it did not want to answer to on wages and benefits.

dingleberry 11 months ago on Bishop urges reconsideration of postal centers

Congress moved the USPS from under its wing years ago because it was a political hot potato, The theory was it would be allowed to operate as a business and cut out continual subsidies. But when changes are made to improve operations, worthless politicians like Sanford seize the moment and spring into action in to curry favor with the masses crying "not in my backyard".

If anyone loses a job in USPS, it will be temps and temps are told that when employed. No sympathy from me.

I would like to get a listing of accounts receivable on city loans. I don't think we are vigorous in trying to make collections. Who is interested in fraud? We can't even collect on school lunches!
