A DEA Agent stopped at a ranch in Texas and talked to an old rancher. He told the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs." The rancher... said, "okay, but don't go into that field over there...", as he pointed out the location. The DEA Agent verbally exploded and said, "look mister, I have the authority of the federal government with me!" Reaching into his rear back pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher. "See this badge?! This badge means I can go wherever I want... On any land! No questions asked, no answers given! Do you understand old man?!"
The rancher kindly nodded, apologized, and went about his chores. Moments later the rancher heard loud screams, he looked up and saw the DEA agent running for his life, being chased by the ranchers big Santa Gertrudis Bull...... With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it was likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified. The old rancher threw down his tools, ran as fast as he could to the fence, and yelled at the top of his lungs......
"YOUR BADGE! SHOW HIM YOUR BADGE!"

>I think that's pretty unfair to working folks.<

We were discussing Gov employees , not workers.

Workers can be fired!

Gov employees get counseling , for years .

Now you're just being a dumb ass. I worked for the government for 32 years and I did a damn good job. Most government employees are "workers" and do their jobs well. A few are slackers but you'll find that everywhere.

Total horse s**t. I worked with government employees and in the private sector for many years and some of the hardest-working, most dedicated people I know worked for state and federal gov't. Also saw several who couldn't, or wouldn't, cut it escorted out the door. I sent a few that way myself. You lose credibility with posts like this.
