We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

A traditionally rightwing newspaper, The Danville Advocate-Messenger, ran a letter to the editor recently about the new direction of the merit system changes:
State employees' group concerned about merit system changes
Imagine, employees worried about their jobs after the recent turn of events in Frankfort. I'd say Fletcher is wrecking things but I don't think he has the credibility nor the political power to do much of anything. He's a lame duck and his first regular session of the legislature's not even started yet.

Government employees have only 2 true loyalties:
1) Getting a good retirement.
2) Getting to retirement.
Whether the DMV clerk or White House staffer, this is the sum of all their motivation. A mayor or governor or the POTUS can pull any shite they like and continue to have full cooperation from the bureaucracy until they mess with (1) or (2).
So long as the gov was putting cronies into new slots, or slots that were emptying anyway, not a word from the clerks and works. But push it to the point that it looks like job loss for those already years in the system, and thus no state retirement......
Hell hath no fury like a petty bureaucrat frightened.
