Obama Signs Executive Order to Diversify Federal Workforce..

Call me crazy but we already have affirmative action goals, equal employment opportunity laws, diversity goals, and numerous other legislative and non-legislative measures to support workforce diversity.   What is this one for?

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama signed an executive order Thursday directing federal officials to design a government-wide strategy for making the federal workforce more diverse.  The three-page order directs the head of the Office of Personnel Management, a deputy director at the Office of Management and Budget, the President’s Management Council and the chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to develop the strategy within 90 days. Agencies then have 120 days to work the plan into their hiring and recruiting.

An Office of Personnel Management report says that in fiscal year 2010, the federal workforce was 66.2 percent white, 17.7 percent black, 8 percent Hispanic, 5.6 percent Asian/Pacific Islander and 1.8 percent Native American. It was 56.1 percent male.

Obama is planning to unveil job creation proposals next month. Some black lawmakers and leaders have criticized him for not directly addressing unemployment among blacks.

Blacks and Hispanics have been hit hard by the recession and are suffering unemployment rates of 15.6 percent and 11.3 percent respectively, higher than the 9.1 percent national average.  Ben Jealous, president of the NAACP, said fighting job discrimination is as important for minorities as job creation.  “We are a country where it’s easier for a white male with a felony record to find a job than a black man that has never committed a crime, and that in itself is a crime,” Jealous said.

OK Got it, nevermind.   I see the Dots… D’oh.   The Black Caucus just got permission to start criticizing Obama and show he is economically inept so he quickly puts a highly political race-based action plan, disguised as a Diversity Executive Order, into place in an effort to appease/quiet the base.    Additionally with the forced new “Stimulus Bill”, soon to be announced, he will propose spending on job creation and will structure the “Stimulus” so that it disproportionately sends money to Union workers (mandates for federal contracts) and Minorities (This XO).   Got it….. “Get Whitey” ! 

Create legally justifiable quotas, the Obama way…..

    Boy, just what we need, another diversity law. Guess the government buildings are going to be filled with baggy-pantsed, bling-wearing, mega-tattoed brothahs and sistahs from the hood to help bring their unemployment down. And you thought government “service” was bad now…

    Tie my arms behind my back, blind fold me, and then TELL me who I have to hire?
    It’s hard enough to find qualified “anyones” to work. I have to try to hire by reliability and capability, not color of skin!!! If I’ve been fooled, I get a goof-off. If I’ve been bamboozled, I get jacked…
    Say after the employment interview, and all seems to have gone well, and if they do show up consistently for any period of time, it’s only until they can feign an injury and get out on unemployment and/or disability! Then, I’m left holding the financial debt and my production tanks until I can find someone else to start the nightmare all over again.
    The work ethic is gone! Some of these ‘people’ have learned how to play the system. I can’t even legally ask previous employers certain questions about their previous employee without getting heat. What am I to do? I might as well shut the doors, turn off the electricity and gas, and sit on my cash. SCREW ‘EM!

    It’s obvious. He’s TRYING to kill the economic recovery. If by telling us to do something that he KNOWS business owners/operators will despise, we will shut the doors, or he can shut us down through his minions. When the tax base collapses, as tax income falls short, he will garner the next step in his own brand of economic recovery: his brand of Marxist SOCIALISM.

    INCREMENTALISM: Step by step, slow and methodic encroachment until he obtains his goal.

    THIS is his bullet in his arsenal. Under the guise of “Jobs Recovery” and “Economic Recovery”.
    He knows what he is doing. He is not foolish. He is dangerous and evil. He is vindictive.

    He knows it will fail.
    He wants it to fail.
    He’s working to make it fail.
    He wants this present system to FAIL.
    ************************************************************************************
    Oh, make no mistake about it. It’s not about the reckoning. Nooo.
    He is out for revenge.
    Revenge for what?
    Being born. He has a hole in his heart which can never be filled…there can never be enough…
    ************************************************************************************
    Mark my words…look at your watch. What time is it?
    What are you going to do about this?

    Say “NO” to this EO.
    Tell your Congressman/woman & Senator “NO” on this EO. “NO”!
    They have to fight it. EO’s can be fought, legally.

    If you are going to do nothing other than couch quarterback “talk” or “jibber-jabber” how “this can’t possibly go through”…then the time you saw on your watch is the precise time you and this country FAIL. THIS is the turning point. This is the point he thrust the K-Bar in the chest cavity of America and is about to twist the pommel.

    So…

    What time is it?

    God Bless.
    The U.S.A.
    …and pass the ammo, please…

  3. Whites Need Not Apply

    President Obama’s new order instructs federal agencies to design new strategies for hiring, promoting and keeping workers of “diverse” backgrounds. The diversity the government is seeking is not diversity of ideas, outlooks or work experiences. In contemporary political parlance, “diversity” refers primarily to the color of one’s skin and not the content of one’s character. The executive order says the federal government “must create a culture that encourages collaboration, flexibility and fairness to enable individuals to participate to their full potential.” In the name of “fairness,” however, the government will intensify programs that discriminate against white Americans by extending special privileges to everyone else. The order also says that “attaining a diverse, qualified workforce is one of the cornerstones of the merit-based civil service,” though merit and ability are not the metrics of choice when measuring success in diversity-driven career programs.

      The gray POTUS has apparently concluded that blacks and Hispanics and Asians will never cut the mustard based on the content of their character. Does that make him a racist? I think it does.

    What comes to mind for me is how with this play out when he is on the campaign trail. He is trying to keep his diverse base so they will get out to vote in 2012. He is in campaign mode now and everything he does is with a plan to how it will play out so he can make the huge changes he wants to make in 2013. It tells me a lot about how low his internal poll numbers are if he needs to hold on to his base with something like this.

    NM Pancho, years ago I saw how good a reference check really is when a heard about a guy who was fired from a job for theft and immediately got a job across the street at the movie theater as a cashier.

  5. Pamela Bennett says:

    Our days are numbered until we can eject this phony president and his phony cronies from the once respected position he now holds. It saddens and “maddens” me everyday to hear of more demoralizing and devastating tactics he is employing to destruct this country in every way possible. I can only hope that everyone will see through this plan to take down America and will stand up and protect and acknowledge what we know has been going on since he took office. Of course, the plan has been instigated long ago by others with the same agenda, but he has put it in fast mode! He must be voted out, but we must be ever more vigilant about who we vote in next year!

  6. tnwahm says:

    Uncle Mark was talking about this last night. Another point of hypocrisy; what kind of diversity is he vacationing with this week on Martha’s Vineyard?

  7. Azalea says:

    As a recently retired Federal employee (not many ‘workers’ in the system) the only way I can think the Fed workforce could be anymore diverse is to start hiring plankton. As an MBA I worked for two supervisors, one of whom had a BS and the other just a few courses at the local community college. They were both certified members of Federally protected groups and, as such, their status trumped my education. Explaining new operational concepts to them was like explaining parallel parking to a squirrel. Our system was, when everything became too screwed up due to ineptitude at the supervisory level, call in outside contractors to fix the mess. Whether it be IT, finance, service delivery, or whatever we were paid to do, there was a list of civilian contractors we’d call to bail us out. Wait a minute…maybe his ‘diversity’ means hiring more competent employees…
    BTW, do not ever believe the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), they are the original self-licking ice cream cone. They can produce statistics that – at any time – show that the government employee pool is too white, too male, just right or mostly raspberry flavored. To this day OPM still refuses recognize Vietnam as a war and will not give Vietnam vets any war-related hiring benefits not specifically legislated for them by Congress. At the same time OPM is working to make it easier for convicted felons to be hired into sensitive Federal jobs.

      “their status trumped my education”
      “make it easier for convicted felons to be hired into sensitive Federal jobs”

      ah…you are just trolling. No way. Can’t happen. REALLY?
      Seriously?

    Dear Mr. President,

    I understand that only part of your regimes job is done and I’m afraid that before you have completed your agenda in all probability I’ll be standing on a street corner begging for money.Today, I feel that I have been accousted by you and your regime on two new fronts one being Federal immigration law (the slight of hand you inacted – nice touch on your part – that will definately get you more illegal votes) The other diversity in the Federal Government work force (that too will be a vote getter)

    Obviously, you can’t be from the same country as me for if you were you would know what exactly equall oppurtunity entailed.First of all the premise is all Men Are Created Equall.Therein, this countries fundamental beleif is not purporting that Blacks, Asians, Eurpoeons and/or our Spanish population have any divine right to be treated differently than anyone else.Thus, the employment of all peoples must be in compliance with the merits of the individual and encompass their intelectual capacity, their education,specific job criterias and experinces. While,the Congressional Black Caucuss continues to set itself apart from the rest of the country pushing an agenda of redistribution of wealth and minority reform enactments, being the same agenda as you pontificate upon, you are creating a sepretist movement that is doing harm to this countries racial balances and yet you continue with enatment of this newest legislation.

    Having said that in a time when the country must find a medium for balance in economics how can you possibly accept the status quo permitting less qualified individuals to perform in government service in the name of diversification and thus, waisting tax payer dollars on inefficiency..More specifically in allowing minorities to perform with qualifications less than their white counterparts you are creating a racial divide. Perhaps you will realize that in doing this you will have created systamatically a new breed of government employees that is completely inept.

    Of course, this day would not be complete without having your administration circumvent another law and that which I refer to is immigration law.Laws are created for the People By The People and not intended as a mechanism for you to enhance the registration of illegal alliens as your voter base. Circumvention of existing laws pertaining to illegal alliens absolutely is an insult to any and all peoples that have come to America from their native lands and borne the expense and hardships of becoming United States citizens following all the tenents as put forward by the Federal Government..I think it would serve you well to talk to these people for they are truly disenfranchised Americans.

    It is all smoke and mirrors.
    He doesn’t really care about diversity, not in terms of race and absolutly not in terms of ideas.
    It is all about stiring the pot and keeping us too busy fighting and argueing to see what his true goals are.
    He acts, we react, others re-react, and he and the progressives just smile…
    If you think it all sounds just a little too “Black Heliocopter”ish, well maybe it is, but then again, maybe not….

    • Gino says:

      Your points are well taken and you can add an addendum to your argument in the form of one Vance Jones and George Soros.Wherefore, they in their infinate and profound wisdom have proclaimed “CREATE SOCIAL DISCORD FROM THE BOTTOM UP”.
      You perhaps will also recall Ronald Regan telling us that the fastest way to create a socialist government was with Health Care Reform and that in doing so there would be those that would advance same as a necessary benefit that would be for the good of the people.His advise was intended as precautionary for the future and the future is now.

    Y’all got it all wrong. When the USPS goes belly-up in a couple of years, that will reduce the African-American ratio of gummint workers to less than their percentage of the total population.
