So glad someone finally wakes up and see’s the mess our great country has gotten in over the past few years.

Comment on Key VA EHR Modernization Officers Step Down by Anonymous https://www.meritalk.com/articles/key-va-ehr-modernization-officers-step-down/#comment-19372 Thu, 06 Sep 2018 04:12:44 +0000 https://www.meritalk.com/?post_type=news_post_type&p=51844#comment-19372 It must be nice to be able to quit! With the VA’s current leadership, same as the previous leadership, most VA employees just want to sail off into the sunset and forget the VA chapter in their life. We all love and care about our veterans, but the current leadership is killing the VA so they can justify outsourcing the VA, so any efforts to make the VA better is crushed unless it promoted the agenda that leads to outsourcing the entire agency.

But Trump isn’t implementing any action for performance based raises, he’s just saying it’s a good idea. This leaves us hard working folks out a raise in FY19. As a member of the federal science and engineering cohort, we’re already underpaid by over 20% compared to private sector. Removing our ability to increase our salary is a fast track to preparing our resumes–which is scary, because the workforce is already notably under-talented. There’s a reason other superpowers have pulled ahead.

Comment on House Bill Would Curb Open Data on Race, Affordable Housing by Anonymous https://www.meritalk.com/articles/house-bill-would-curb-open-data-on-race-affordable-housing/#comment-19298 Wed, 05 Sep 2018 05:53:44 +0000 https://www.meritalk.com/?post_type=news_post_type&p=27869#comment-19298 It’s not the federal governments job to reduce racial, ethnic, and economic segregation in housing; this idea is social engineering. This is why thinking people despise big government.

Did the government ever think people like being segregated? Different races, ethnicities and economic groups actually are uncomfortable living with each other. Black people are uncomfortable with whites buying up homes in their black neighborhoods. Poor people don’t really enjoy seeing the well off have what they can’t have every day, this just breeds animosity and jealousy.

You can’t make life “fair” by social engineering neighborhoods to try to change society. This is just another liberal experiment.
