    ...in the bureaucratic sector. If you spend your entire career in a taxpayer-funded job that executes in the realm of protracted state agency, you are beneath a suckling pig. That pig, at least, graduates from the stage of parasite. A lifetime spent feeding on the productivity and redistributed funds that others earn is the very definition of leech - unaccountable, unseasoned by real experience, unchallenged by competitive marketplace, and permanently ensconced or lodged in a moist cavity of our republic.

    We need term limits on bureaucrats...and once those terms expire, these people must be prohibited from vocational exposure to government agencies moving forward. De-populate northern Virginia as well as Maryland of this giant, metastasizing tumor that is draining the national body of liberty and decency.

    Any time I hear some hack politician reference "career public servant" I am sickened - as we all should be. If you aren't an educator, a first responder, or a member of our armed forces...you do not belong in this category any more than I do. Time to run these hacks off.

    The DC Lifer 'public servants' are there working for themselves and not WE THE PEOPLE.

    If founder fathers thought two terms were enough for the POTUS, evidently they didn't think parasites would be in Congress and Senate and should have made 2 and gone same for Congress and Senate

    Bernie the perfect example of suckling piggy

    Geez how do you really feel?

    The worst part of it all is that it is these parasites who are the ones who make the rules that the rest of us have to live by. The same rules rarely if ever seem to apply to them.

    Doesn't strike me as any sort of career path for normal people. Rotate people through. I think we'd all benefit from circulation of talent and having folks who are "cross-competent".

    :)

    Sorry, hearing a news report on the drive into the office this morning just got me stirred up. "Career public servant" indeed!

    Any politician who has held office beyond 10, 15, 20 years.

    I guess it's a gray area person to person, but I'm all for kicking out lifelong politicians. They get corrupt, self-serving, and rich off of our dime.

    what about the CIA?
    Should we kick them out to after serving a specified amount of time?

    Just a regular, normal guy. Married, father of three. No tats, no piercings or rivets, no self-mutilation of any sort, normal short haircut, raised by two normal parents who are still married (64 years and counting), played lots of sports as a kid...through college, graduated college, worked as a grunt engineer until I decided to found my own engineering company...built that up over a couple of decades, traveling the world...then sold it...only to do some consulting chemical engineering as a stand alone guy at this point. I am your ordinary suburban fella. Kids sports, community volunteering, the standard stuff.

    No fatigues. No facemasks or knitted hats made to resemble genitalia. Just normal stuff.

    Yes. There should be no such thing as career bureaucrats. Rotate folks through public/private spheres. We can determine the proper interval(s).

    Absolutely, and the shorter that interval, the better.

    The productive segment of our society, and the productive segments of nearly all societies before it.

    Too bad the distinction between productive and unproductive doesn't matter come election time.

    That is too bad. There are far too many leeches voting in our elections. Voting should be limited to tax-paying landowners.
