RumSFelD: My Rules for Life (14th in a series) SERVING IN GOVERNMENT (Part 1 of 3)

-> Note that all quotes titled"rumsfeld sez" comes from a document he created in 2001, entitled, "My Rules for Life" (see bottom of post for original source)

<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
Public servants are paid to
serve the American people. Do it well.

*** Markbnj says ***
AND Don't CONTINUALLY screw up so badly!

<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
Congress, the press, and the
bureaucracy too often focus on how much money or effort is spent,
rather than whether the money or effort actually achieves the announced goal.

*** Markbnj says ***
Perhaps remembering the GOAL would be helpful!

It is very difficult to spend “federal (the taxpayers’) dollars”
so that the intended result is achieved.

*** Markbnj says ***
Perhaps a bit of PRE-WAR PLANNING might have saved BILLIONS and BILLIONS of Dollars in poor spending...
<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
Beware when any idea is promoted primarily because it is “bold, exciting, innovative, and new.” There are many ideas that are “bold, exciting, innovative and new,” but also foolish.

*** Markbnj says ***
It's interesting. Please define YOUR defination of TORTURE. You may NOT use the word TORTURE in your definition!

<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
The Federal Government should be the last resort, not the first. Ask if a potential program is truly a federal
responsibility or whether it can better be handled privately, by voluntary
organizations, or by local or state governments.

*** Markbnj says ***
Like the Draft
<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
− As former Missouri Congressman Tom Curtis said, “Public money drives out private money.”

.... and poor planning on YOUR part does not make an emergency on MY part, UNLESS you're talking about LIVES of our AMERICAN Soldiers.
