    My experience over the last 3+ decades has demonstrated without exception that with a turnover rate like this that it is incompetent management. All the best people my left toe. This is so freaking obvious. See what happens when the less is more and the more is less mentality gets rewarded? Just wait. Seen this movie a time or two before.

    "Oh, but my 401k is great, he's a genius".

    Umkay.

    If you have been following what is going on in Brazil, it appears that both Trump and Bolsonaro are trying to one up each other and earn the title of wanna be dictator of the year.

    The OP link reports that the IG was looking into Pompeo. A dishonest government that covers up its wrongdoing and eliminates dissent. Protected speech faces retaliation and sanction on the guise of the label “deep state” and “draining the swamp.” They are the swamp enabled by Trump’s base. Trump could shoot supporters on Fifth Avenue and the wounded would blame Hilary Clinton.

    you mean he fired someone else who dared to try and tell him that what his guys was doing was illlegal? No independent oversight will be tolerated by this dictator. Dissent is not an option, only loyalty is important. You would be losing your chit if O had tried to get away with half the stuff that T seems to do with impunity while the once great repub party cowers in the corner

    Romney calls Trump's IG firings "a threat to accountable democracy"

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney on Saturday denounced President Donald Trump's firings of internal government oversight officials, calling it a "threat to accountable democracy."

    Romney's comments came in response to Trump's Friday firing of State Department Inspector General Steve Linick -- the latest in a series of dismissals of independent government watchdogs that have come in the wake of the President's acquittal on two articles of impeachment earlier this year.

    "The firings of multiple Inspectors General is unprecedented; doing so without good cause chills the independence essential to their purpose. It is a threat to accountable democracy and a fissure in the constitutional balance of power," the Utah Republican tweeted.

    Romney is the only Senate Republican who voted to convict Trump of abuse of power earlier this year.

    When peoples' words adversely affect other people's livelihoods and hence their quality of life up to and including their marriages, jobs, credit, roof over their heads, words are pretty FREAKING important. When one has witnessed the financial carnage that guys like CIC create, one can get back with me. I have witnessed it, first hand, and compared notes with my bretheren across the country and they all saw the same thing. That people refuse--and yes I said REFUSE to accept that practically guarantees it will happen again, again and again. Like it has many times before.

    But them's just words, y'all know what I really mean. Dale Bozzio says "hello".

    Words mean much more when they have real life consequences and actions that follow them... "If like your healthcare insurance you can keep it..." Tell me how many millions of Americans were kicked off of their healthcare insurance? Millions...

    Those are the words that concern me the most.

    I'm one of them that was kicked off when Mrs. GK passed. "Sorry about your loss GK, but you're no longer covered".

    I'm also concerned with lies like that we had the greatest economy in the history of the United States that was either a total deliberate lie or a demonstration of blatant incompetence. Both suck.

    Trump did not try to kill our economy for no real reason... Why don't you look into the truth and see which country unleashed this virus and go from there.

    Trump and truth are mutually exclusive terms. It's who they are, it's what they are, it's how they live. I've dealt with hundreds of them as I have said ad nauseum. If I said multiple times daily that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, as annoying as that would be, does that make not make it not a fact?
