The Ethical (Or Unethical) Issues in Government PR

More than any other organization, governments use public relations as a way to reach out to and share information with their citizens. “Public relations’ central value to government is its ability to engender a more informed society through ethical, transparent, and honest communications between the government and its citizens” (Corbett). Although the United States government does utilize public relations methods to make citizens aware of valuable services like Food Stamps, WIC, and services that protect victims of abuse, a good portion of tax payer funds that the government uses for public relations purposes is used unethically. As early as 1913, special interest groups have expressed concern over the appropriateness of government use of public relations. Political activists have promoted “vague and general fears that a government relations activity could be perverted into a propaganda machine that would manipulate public opinion” (Turney).

In November of 2008, the Albany Times Union reported … Read More

Well there isn’t much you can’t do if you are a an American citizen over the age of eighteen years old with the determination to locate the various government grant programs that you may be eligible to qualify for.

Pure Bottled Water Clubs in the Federal Government

Generally speaking, the Federal Government does not purchase pure bottled drinking water for Federal employees unless it can be proved that agency drinking water is unsuitable for drinking.

Proof of water quality however, is a long and time consuming process and many agency employees are forced to drink low quality, bad tasting tap or well water in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.

Nevertheless, many Federal agency employees now purchase pure drinking water by forming water clubs. Water clubs are formed from individual employees with shared interests of maintaining good health and drinking pure water as a start. The club that is formed agrees to purchase bottled water delivery and usually agrees to rent or buy one or more water coolers for club use on the agency premises.

The club gains purchasing power based on the strength of it membership and the members gain the advantage of pure drinking water for … Read More

What Are Government Car Auctions?

When the federal government arrests drug dealers, terrorists, or other criminals, they often seize the car. Every so often, citizens are given the opportunity to buy these cars in government car auctions. Let us continue further by giving you some more information on these car auctions…

Some people may not want a car that has a questionable past. Although cars seized by the government were once involved in crimes, buying a car from the government is perfectly safe.

This consideration aside, the cars you get at these types of auctions are often the best deals you will get on cars anywhere. Most of the automobiles are in excellent shape, and the government is usually willing to let them go at significantly lower prices than you would find elsewhere. The US Government is in serious debt right now, so it is happy to make any profit at all off of the … Read More

Why Homeschooling Works Better Than Government Schooling

After years of trying and failing to raise the educational performance of our students, our state has finally decided to develop stricter criteria for graduation.

They are thinking about increasing the graduation requirements to match college admission requirements, so that more kids can go to college. The high schools are hearing from businesses and colleges that their students are not prepared for college OR for the work force.

Seems so perfectly logical and obvious that you wonder why they hadn’t thought of it before! One small problem: no money. The plan is now going through the State Board of Education, and then it has to get through the State Legislature for funding. With a 5 billion dollar deficit this year, funding for this brilliant move is in doubt.

I have a couple of thoughts here:

First: don’t feel like you can’t do a good job of educating your children at … Read More

How to Pick This Year’s President

Many folks on social media are inundating me with political propaganda this month; I’ve been guilty of sharing a few tidbits myself and I get it: You want your candidate to win, or you hate both of them and want to revolt.

The problem is that 90% of this stuff is pure garbage (or satire) from both sides.

So who do you support when both options make you want to hold your nose?

Hillary’s integrity issues are completely different, from Mr. Trump’s, but they are on their own merit deeply repugnant to many of us just the same. While Hillary’s skeletons have until recently been under lock and key behind closed doors, Trump has played out each and every one of his personal melodramatic gaffes & predatory business dealings in the gleaming light of the public eye.

This really doesn’t paint the idyllic scene we hoped for, but it is … Read More
