Titles are hard.

So I want to direct everyone over to Voxbaby and this link about the Federal Brain Drain. Please, this is not an excuse to make Bush administration jokes.

I have to say that I don't think the Bush administrations attempts to move away from the General Schedule Pay System will help things. Despite the rhetoric, there is quite a bit of room for rewarding GS employees monetarily both through bonuses and performance related step increases. What is the solution? Well there are basically two easily identifiable routes. 1. Become more efficient and get the job done with fewer employees. This would be more effective if we reduced the complexity of government regulations (like for example the tax code) as it would make administration easier and it would also be more effective if we decreased both the size and scope of government in general as there would be less positions that needed to be filled. 2. The alternative is to increase pay and benefits to induce more people to work for the federal government.

And now for some humor.

Here is an Emo Philips article where he interviews himself.

Also by Emo Philips and voted the number one religion joke over at Ship of Fools here is a great one.

"Iwas walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump.
I ran over and said: "Stop. Don't do it."

"Why shouldn't I?" he asked.

"Well, there's so much to live for!"

"Like what?"

"Are you religious?"

He said, "Yes."

I said, "Me too. Are you Christian or Buddhist?"

"Christian."

"Me too. Are you Catholic or Protestant?"

"Protestant."

"Me too. Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?"

"Baptist."

"Wow. Me too. Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?"

"Baptist Church of God."

"Me too. Are you original Baptist Church of God, or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?"

"Reformed Baptist Church of God."

"Me too. Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915?"

He said: "Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915."

I said: "Die, heretic scum," and pushed him off.
