If you think this is about "defending the press", then you've missed the point of people like myself. This is about respecting the office of the presidency - which was the same reason we barked at predecessors for doing stupid shit while president

Okay - I'll change it to if "one".

But probably not, from what I have seen from her the political BS aspect of the job more than takes back the benefit of the "less real work required" aspect (not in value delivered, but in stress and strain on the employee).

If I worked at the VA, for example, I would never have to deal with stuff like insurance peer reviews, have far fewer petitioned pts/court commitments, no malpractice worries/paperwork, etc...so there are many plusses to that as well. Im sure in other fields(in exchange for some of the fed paperwork bs) you also are exempt from a lot of other hassles/pressures that we have to deal with in the real world
 
I can say the same about SOM DOC. The bloat is in middle and upper
management, not at the level of people that actual perform a useful task.

In my job, the smart people tended to not promote, go to the night
shift, and work some OT so it negated the lack of promotion. I taught,
organized, and persuaded in our union so I could stick it to my
oppressors and keep my job.

It was pretty difficult to get fired at the company I worked for.
People who deserved a second chance got one - and sometimes a third
chance.
 
The union was from TN to the Gulf - from KY north no union. And no
union in the office. It was the most enjoyable place to work and the
highest paying in the area. From supervisor up we were almost
obligated to participate in one or more civic endeavors and the
company carried a lot of weight - even nationally.

So you got rid of your Alabama sports prints and now you're bidding on some frou-frou landscape oil painting in a gilded frame from England?
 
Some Alabama fan you are!

Stay out of it. The art world is crooked. How to shop for a
painting: Go look at it every day for a couple weeks. Spend time
in front of it every day. Eventually it will speak to you, one
way or another.
 
If you decide to buy, then beat on the gallery owner until blood
comes out of his ears. Then take it home a happy man.

just a few years back when Obama, talking about Ann Coulter, tweeted "is she a man? She sure looks like one with that adam's apple. Or should I say 'he'?" and then he posted that fake Sports Illustrated cover that said "Obama is the greatest living sportsman" and then he threatened Tucker Carlson with some scandalous story and then shortly after that Michael Press got all excited and said Obama "was acting like a freaking President!"

Nice. We used to have foxes along the tree line in my backyard - but they didn't come back this year which makes me sad. I don't miss them digging in my garden, but I do miss the kits cavorting in my backyard at twilight

Jeff Zucker is absolutely right when he says CNN is being
attacked. Just because he told staff to forget about the Paris
climate story and get back to Russia; just because he fired three
reporters because of a threat of a phoney-baloney lawsuit; just
because he tacitly admits that the Russia story is a nothing
burger; it looks like he will be made a scapegoat when the big
merger goes through.
 
It's so unfair.
