$1,802,871,000 of our tax money spent on Executive Department civilian employees when given paid time off for Christmas Eve.
Inspired by an outraged Miami County Liberty group member:
According to the Federal Register, President Obama issued four executive orders over the past seven years granting paid time off – two 1/2 days and two full days- for Christmas Eve. Executive Department civilian employees already receive 33 days, at a minimum, of paid time off annually. In addition, they did receive payment for their time off during the “government shutdown” and for snow days
The 2014 number of civilian Executive Department employees varied from 2,100,000 – 2,663,000 depending which statistics are used and the Bureau of Labor Statistics states the average earnings for full-time federal employees was $74,403 in 2009. The earnings figure does not include any benefits which is an important part of anyone’s compensation.
If the average wage is $74,403 and the average number of days worked is 227 (260-33), an employee will make $286.17/day. If the number of civilian employees in the Executive Department is 2,100,000 and each one had an additional three days off over four years of Christmas Eve executive orders, President Obama spent an additional $1,802,871,000 of our money with his pen and a phone.
1.8 billion dollars spent on employees with 33 days of paid time off available to them already. Certainly one of those 33 days could be used instead! Just one more outrage!
Letter explains that no law requires letting members of the opposite sex into public school restrooms

Attorney sound bite: Matt Sharp
– Alliance Defending Freedom sent a letter
to the Hillsboro R-3 School District Board of Education Monday that asks it to reverse a recent decision by district staff to allow students to use locker rooms and restrooms of the opposite sex. The letter provides a suggested policy
that addresses the school district’s concerns about discrimination without allowing the sharing of restrooms.
The ADF letter explains that no law requires public schools to allow boys into girls’ restrooms or girls into boys’ restrooms. In fact, the district could be exposing itself to legal liability for violating students’ right to bodily privacy. Read more…
Progress Ohio has accused Ohio’s leading Republicans and others of continuing their assault on Planned Parenthood with lies and widely discredited videos, selectively spliced to make it appear as if the health care provider illegally profits from the sale of fetal tissue. This post will try to supply unedited versions of the videos and let you decide for yourself. From 7/14 , 7/21 , 7/28 , and 8/6 .
After watching these disturbing videos we need to ask who is selling lies – Progress Ohio or Center for Medical Progress? Also, should Planned Parenthood, whose main mission seems to be to kill babies, be called a health care provider? Last question, with Obamacare requiring insurance to pay 100% of women’s health screenings (and everyone is required to have insurance), why is it necessary to fund this entity?
In the wake of a San Francisco shooting that garnered national attention, the immigration debate has centered on sanctuary cities.
Sanctuary policies differ from city to city, but generally the policies instruct city employees and law enforcement to not ask the immigration status of criminal suspects.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, more than 200 cities and counties in the United States have policies that make them immigration sanctuaries.
