63% of federal workers earning 100k+ are men

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Obama's war on women.
"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Reading the header, I just had to jump all over this!

"Federal" and "Worker(s)" are two terms that are mutually exclusive. The two should NEVER be used in the same sentence, under any circumstance!

Carry on.
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you bleep with me, I'll kill you all.

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.

Totally useless statistics. Unless we know what the job descriptions are and other factors like educational background, seniority, and locality (the gov't does pay premiums for hazardous locations), we don't have a clue as to why there are differences.

You are right. Women also miss more work, taking kids to doctors and maternity leaves. Many opt for jobs where they can take time off or jobs that are flexible. They also choose lower paying careers, like in the social fields.

474,000 people working for the federalies who make $100,000+?  That is an enormous amount of people making big bucks who add nothing to the economy.

$474 billion a year, minimum, just to "feed" that bunch
