Over the course of more than 22 years of service with the Federal government Nathan Gjovik has seen first-hand how it uses tools like affirmative action and various preferences and set asides to award positions, promotions, and contracts. These tools are nearly all designed to serve populations who the Government has deemed to be 'disadvantaged' while Caucasian males, who the Government has apparently determined as a class to be advantaged, are relegated to whatever they are able to muster on their own, outside the Federal sector. With the increasing proportion of Federal control of the US economy these tools determine in large part economic winners and losers within the US. These tools also indirectly impact how Federal laws are promulgated and enforced by program managers, many of whom were awarded their positions based primarily on their race or gender (or other non-merit based factors), determine how to best ensure the continuance of their program as well as the manner in which it will follow, enforce, or ignore Federal law. CAPT Nathan D. Gjovik, USPHS (Ret.) This book is an accounting of Mr. Gjovik's attempts to make positive changes from within the Federal government and the Federal responses to same. It also documents some of the asinine, incompetent, and potentially criminal activities which occur routinely within the Federal sector through the eyes of one who came from the private sector.
