David Wright, director of the Office of Research Integrity (ORI) in the Department Of Health And Human Services, just quit his job in a big way. Wright wrote an insanely blunt resignation letter that was recently published by ScienceInsider. In it, he exposed the dysfunctional bureaucratic red tape that limited him from doing his job more than half of the time.

We’ve compiled some of the most entertaining parts below. Of course, feel free to read the full letter yourself, though I must warn that it’s loaded with various acronyms (common with government work).

He was only able to actually do his job around 35% of the time:

This has been at once the best and worst jobs I’ve ever had…Working with members of the research community, particularly RIOs, and the brilliant scientist-investigators in ORI has been one of the great pleasures of my long career. Unfortunately, and to my great surprise, it turned out to be only about 35% of the job.

 

The rest of my role as ORI Director has been the very worst job I have ever had and it occupies up to 65% of my time. That part of the job is spent navigating the remarkably dysfunctional HHS bureaucracy to secure resources and, yes, get permission for ORI to serve the research community…What I was able to do in a day or two as an academic administrator takes weeks or months in the federal government, our precinct of which is OASH.

This is just the tip of the Iceberg.  Multiply this by the 2.4 million who work for The USG.  This a major flaw in the US.  All Gov employees come under the Executive Branch.  This means they all work for Obama.  So don't wonder why so much is wasted, or why we are 17 Trillion in debt.  In the private sector bad leaders are fired by the board.  Folks, we are the board under the Constitution.  Like if you think this CEO should be fired and jailed for gross mismanagement!

Well said William. I agree with you and hopefully if the Senate is taken our of the control of the Dumocrats in the next election, we can impeach Obummer and fire his corrupt administration.

here....here, William and Velma

And how many years did he suck the taxpayers dry for NOT doing his job, why didn't he expose them early on.  He is among the 500,000 (at least) tht. suck up the pay and then say oh poor me and look at what is going on, to hell him these folks!

Chris, that is why when a voter lazily doesn't bother with the details of current events, or vetts a political candidates background, or votes for a candidate because he "seems OKAY",  the voter doesn't just exersize his voting right (for which he claims total discretion), but he makes a decision with your pocketbook contributed revenues. Blithely ignorant voters are contemptible. They put Obama in office. TWICE!

I agree, however, the obummer voters had ONE end in mind: free stuff! They do not care about obummer's character, intentions or qualifications.

I agree. There are not only ignorant voters there are people who go to the voting booth and vote a straight Republican or Democrat ticket. They do not care about the person, issue, etc, all they care about is the Party concerned! I call these people lazy voters.

Here is the reason I believe Obama gets away with whatever he wants to do:

If one has never worked in the Fed Gov they can not begin to understand how the bureaucracy functions. If I was in a position and experienced the same situation I would want to do something about the dysfunction but I need more time to determine who I can go to and there may NOT be anyone I could go to. It sounds like this situation was not one where one could walk into a supervisor's office and complain or quit. Some Government positions require one to remain in in the position 1-2 or more years when accepting an appointment. One just does not "leave" a position in the Fed. Gov. The same with certain State jobs. It is more complicated than one could determine from the timeline here. Besides it takes months to process any business in the bureaucracy. Fore instance: take the VA. It may take years for a simple claim to be processed.

Their is absolutely no difference in HHS and the German Gestapo, just ime and location.

Kinda reinforces the old saw, "If you don't want to get anything done just give it to a group."  The communist utopia is doomed because of it...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

Finally, someone who has some integerity!  And not afraid to talk about it!

There is a mind set in the Federal Government that there is a time given to do a job and if you get it done before the time lotted the funds will be cut next year in the budget. There is so much waste of funds through government it would make most people with any command sense and respect for their country or job sick each day at work. It's No wonder that federal workers have to have sick leave and annual leave they just have to get away from the sickness.

ALERT ALERT

BREAKING: Hillary Admits She Was Wrong About ‘Deplorables,’
White Nationalists Only ‘0.15%’ Of U.S. Population

(TeaParty.org) – Hillary Clinton, the failed liberal presidential candidate who sealed her fate by slamming half of U.S. voters as a load of racist, sexist, xenophobic “deplorables,” just came out and admitted she was wrong, Breitbart reports.

Speaking with Hugh Hewitt on his radio show about her book “What Happened,” he asked her if she actually believes that half of the American population are white nationalists and racists.

“Of the 62.9 million people who voted for President Trump, do you have a number in your mind that you think are actually white nationalist racists of that 62.9 million, a real number?” he asked.

“No, I don’t,” she said.

Still have any doubts? Later in the conversation, Hewitt asked the same question again. “Do you think there are more than a half million, you know, honest-to-God white nationalists running around the United States?”

Clinton: “Probably not, no.”

A white nationalist would like to establish a sovereign country for people of white European heritage, an idea everyone across the political spectrum finds unspeakably intolerable and offensive. Now, the woman who declared that this was the desire of more than half of Americans is saying that virtually nobody wants it. On both counts, she’s completely wrong.

There’s no doubt that Clinton is probably going to try running again for president in 2020 – if she’s even alive that long – and might be trying to absolve her guilt and pander to all those “undecideds” who instantly went MAGA the second she blasted them as no-good racist deplorables for not voting Democrat.

However, Clinton did later admit that there were more white nationalists in America than she had thought. Expressing her worries that the internet and the presidency of Trump is giving them a voice and a platform, she hinted that under her iron scepter, she will attempt to silence them.

“Unfortunately, their views, which used to be quite beyond the mainstream, you know, have a much broader audience now, because you know, of being online and having outlets and media presence that can promote those attitudes,” she said.

How many white nationalists are there in the United States? That’s a question with troublingly few answers, since for some mysterious reason the liberal mainstream media – even though it claims all the time that white supremacy is on the rise – hasn’t actually bothered to take polls and just ask people whether they are white nationalists.

Actually, there’s a simple answer to that. If such a poll were to be taken, our bet is that liberals would be very disappointed to discover that almost nobody is actually a white nationalist, and so there would be no way they could continue scaring people with those fears. A tactic Clinton has apparently given up on.

Left-wingers are entirely convinced that some vague but large majority of people who say they aren’t racists or white nationalists, actually share a lot of views with them – which is why Nazi and white supremacist have become interchangeable with Republican and libertarian.

An article by Newsweek, which polled around 5,000 in order address this very question, came up with this response:

About 70 percent of respondents strongly agreed that people of different races should be “free to live wherever they choose” and that “all races are equal,” and 89 percent agreed that all races should be treated equally. At the same time, 31 percent of respondents said they strongly or somewhat agreed that the country needs to “protect and preserve its White European heritage,” while 34 percent strongly or somewhat disagreed and 29 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed.

Reality is, it’s a little true that some Americans do have overlapping views with white nationalists, but the overwhelming majority of respondents STRONGLY believe that the races should be free, are equal, and should be treated equally. Sounds like none of these respondents would be joining a lynch mob or waging a second Holocaust any time soon – trying to equate the preservation of white heritage with support for slavery and genocide is obviously one of the Left’s biggest lies, and the very reason why 39 percent of people in this same survey believe white people are under attack.

So Clinton changes her mind, and now says she believes less than one percent of the American population are white nationalists – did she believe there were even LESS than that during the campaign trail? Either way, she’s either just lying or plain stupid.
