What ever happened to the concept of doing a days (nights) work and then getting paid a days (nights) wage?
Apparently the Secret Service detail attached to President Obama has learned too well from the administration the idea of entitlement and of expecting to get something for nothing.
Unfortunately these agents found out the hard way that in Colombia a working girl get's paid for the services that she provides, or else!
The good news is that these agents will know better the next time they are out on a detail.
The bad news is that their next detail will most likely be working as an unarmed guard for a security company on the night shift at a warehouse.
Now on to the Watcher's Council voting results!
The Watcher's Council nominations for the week of April 16th were presented, the votes were cast and counted, and the winner will now been announced!
For those who may be enjoying their first Watcher's Council experience, it is a group that consists of some of the top conservative bloggers from around the world.
A group that The Political Commentator is extremely proud to have been asked to be part of!
Each week members select and submit an article of their own creation in addition to one article from a non-council blog they find to be particularly topical and important.
While you may not always agree with what you read, that alone may make the experience that much more valuable!
Once the submissions have been received at an undisclosed location in secret ballot form, the Watcher's Council members then individually vote for their favorites.
Those votes are protected and held by outside auditing firm Arthur Andersen until such time as they are counted and a winner named for the Grand Prize.
This Grand Prize consists of the appreciation of ones peers.
In the end though, we all win because of the range of information and important analysis received on the critical issues of the day.
In a nutshell, the Watcher's Council is the ultimate conservative blog aggregator!
