    It makes no sense.

    That is "what I gave," the frustration that there is a giant bureaucracy in place that wants a great deal of power and oversight, feels no obligation to present the real process openly, and has no awareness of the face they present to potential employees.

    As I said, no wonder they can't find people.

    As for me, my taxes went up last night because we cannot come to grips with the idea that our government cannot hope to keep all of the promises they have made to our "47%," the folks that working men like me will have to continue to support. The irony is that while they tax me more, there is less and less chance that I will receive even a fraction of what they claimed I will receive for those tax payments. I'm just supporting a failed socio-economic plan that favors the "takers" over the "makers."

    Now Doug, despite out bumping heads, I firmly believe that you are a pretty smart feller, so you might want to get these guys on the horn and see if you can straighten them out to what the word "outreach" means, so that you can get the guys you need. At the rate my country is going, there should be a lot of people looking to avoid the "fundamental change of America" that is the current vision of our resident at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    No Doug, I know that I am a sinner. That's why I need a savior.

    I have no idea what you are talking about, though. Martyrdom? Man, that's a lot of vitriol for a new year.

    I don't know what's going on with you today, but I hope you are okay.

    Been busy too but like a bad smell im back...for a bit. Ill probably be around a little more since I get to go to block 1 at the start of next week. Youll probably see me come in here confused as heck needing help with the endless homework I know JTAC will bombard me with.

    Happy new years to everyone. Hope your hollidays were not bombarded with service calls.

    Moon: bet a lot of people are PO'd theres no zombies. Especially if they sunk money into one of these:
