If you ever thought that the taxpayers money is used to actually ensure the taxpayers safety or the taxpayers survival during a disaster—I really have to disappoint you!
Neither FEMA nor FDA give a darn. FEMA is good at creating disasters
and the FDA… Wait—maybe it is the FDA’s job to create a disaster for FEMA:
The Food and Drug Administration has known for years about contamination problems at a Georgia peanut butter plant and on California spinach farms that led to disease outbreaks that killed three people, sickened hundreds, and forced one of the biggest product recalls in U.S. history, documents and interviews show.
Overwhelmed by huge growth in the number of food processors and imports, however, the agency took only limited steps to address the problems and relied on producers to police themselves, according to agency documents.
Overwhelmed. Hmm, yes. Exactly. That’s the fit for a micromanager who has no vision or plan.
One of the 13 sins in Stop Telling… Start Leading! The Art of Managing People by Asking Questions
Let Everything Go Uncontrolled
Trusting the team (FEMA) or producers (FDA) doesn’t mean giving up control. The issue for most managers isn’t whether to exert control, but how to do it. But I guess when one is too busy micromanaging—one can’t be really be bothered with controlling anything. And we all know that the tax-money comes in no matter what…
What are the FDA employees eating? And their families?
As usual —there is no leadership and the blame game is in full throttle. Over the past few years many thinks have gone wild. Maybe there have been times when it has been worst, but wouldn’t you agree that there has seldom be a time during which it was so obvious? That Jane and John Doe do not matter anymore —as long as there are some who can
- Fill their pockets
- Display that they are in power
- Ignore the choices of the majority
- Surveillance, controlling and spying on others are the number one priority.
Whatever happened to the employees that try to do their job by the laws?
Or are those the one getting fired —because they ask too many questions?
