Monkeys, management and Happy 4th yall!

Well afternoon campers, another weekend survived and generally gone by without much excitement. I was working Saturday and Sunday night and as ever was very busy. I am not allowed to say too much about my part time job here due to any repercussions that may happen but suffice it to say that as usual in any large organisation there are far too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Most of the policies that are in place must have been thought up by a retarded monkey who has undergone a frontal lobotomy operation.
They make no sense whatsoever and when you point it out in the simplest of terms that even a child could understand it still doesn’t sink in.
 If I ran my business in the way that many of these large organisations run theirs I would be out of business in a week.
None of it is rocket science it’s just simple common sense and yet it seems to elude even the highest paid of these chiefs.
All that is needed is to look at the resources available and look at how they can be best utilised and if we are short of one resource, well here’s an idea, work out a way to fill that shortage!!
Revolutionary maybe but rocket science, I don’t think so.
I used to work as local crew for a company that provided crew for visiting Bands to Sheffield and also sometimes to the big festivals and whilst sometimes things didn’t quite go smoothly behind the scenes, never did a crisis occur and it was all sorted and resources were managed like a well oiled piece of German engineering. All this with minimum management, sometimes I think there was only one person organising things (you know who you are and well done) and from our point of view all went smoothly, I'm sure behind the scenes there may have been more than a few stressful moments but it was sorted.
 Unlike the huge organisations that exist like the one I work part time for. Cull 50% of the management and reintroduce that funding at ground level staffing and a lot of the problems would go away. For heavens sake they couldn’t even get me a parking permit with the correct registration number on it.
Maybe introduce a 3 strikes and your out policy, Basically you screw up for being an idiot and not using the common sense  the dear lord wasted on you and your down the road, your salary to be redistributed at ground level resources.
The politicians that run our country are no better,
The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites'.
It doesn’t really matter which political party is elected as they will have to do the same thing to or similar things to get the country out of the hole that the last lot left it in.
“The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that's out always looks the best.” Will Rogers said that and he was not far off the mark.
Anyway, a very Happy 4th of July for my many friends across the pond, I may have a few beverages this evening , a wry smile may creep across my face at the thought of how ironic it has become that many countries secretly supplied America with arms during that war and helped in other ways as well and oh how the tide has turned in recent years.
