OWS Possible Strategy of Tension: Increase Grievences Against Individual Federal Manager Decisions for Sequester - The GOAL is to eventually create Whistleblower Federal Managers working in Budget Areas or other Federal Offices. The Objective is Friction between Federal Managers and Federal Executives.

We all know you have to play along to get along in any Career. If you can Divide Federal Managers who might be forced to Retire from Supporting Public Exectuive Policy ... Then they might Write Books, Write Articles, become Government Critics, become News Channel Guests, etc...

This would be True in the Event of Big Government Layoffs as well.

Wouldn't it be great to have former Federal Regulators feel Cheated and become Whistleblowers.

I'm not sure if this can work. Soveriegn Immunity protects government managers from lawsuits ... and in general when you become a federal manager the government protects you from demotions and getting fired. Most likely if you get in big trouble - you will move to a new job. No big deal, right.

But all of Government is Politics.

This is the Number One Vulnerability of our Government. When Individual Executives or Managers become a Target for EITHER the US Media or the US Voter, the elected officials are vulnerable.

This is a Strategy at Least. OWS and the US Voter need Strategies and discussions about Strategies.

1) Online Blogging, Webiste Exposure, Web Investigations, Watchdog Websites, etc.
2) Phone Calls or Letters to Congress
3) Phone Calls to Government Agencies
4) Activism, Townhalls, Invite Congressment to Townhall for specific Topics of contension regarding Sequestration
5) New Grassroots approaches

The Strategy is more about Causing Friction in many Places through out the Federal Government, Raising Questions, Questioning the Logic, Approach to cuts, management, direction of federal government, leadership of current Regulators ... or leadership of specific Congressmen who NO LONGER Support People over Corporations.

BTW I see a new effort online to spread corporatism. A company call LLC.com advertises that everyone with a business should become a corporation and get incorporated for cheap without a Lawyer or an Accountant ... online at LLC.com. The Disease Spreads.

Robert Mueller, Dir FBI, should Resign and has been Director for 12 years. Mueller was nominated for the position of FBI Director on July 5, 2001.[4] "... offered to resign from office in March 2004 if the White House overruled a Department of Justice finding that domestic wiretapping without a court warrant was unconstitutional.[11]..."
