- TOWN OF ANDREWS PERSONNEL POLICIES – On 19 April 2022 town aldermen voted 3-1 to trash anti-nepotism policy.
My comment: The Parks and Recreation Department and the Police Department have already taken advantage of the anti-anti-nepotism rule, with the head of each department hiring their sons. My comment on this is that I have no comment. This post is simply for the record. I’m just reporting the facts.

Well. ch-ch-ch-changes. This was a bit of news I didn’t expect to see. And I am just wondering what else might come to pass.
Great graphic, Father! I grew up working for my father in the private sector. He made sure that his children & wife were paid less than everyone else.
We all, mom especially, believed that he was just cheap, but after a few years, we realized that this arrangement made him bullet-proof to to charges of favoritism (not nepotism)! when anyone charged him with nepotism, his response was “yeah, so what? I own this business, and they make less than you do!”
Of course this does not work in the public sector, where those in charge have no “skin” in the game, and can peddle influence, position, and contracts to their profit.
Sons have been trained and worked under their fathers since the dawn of history. Wasn’t Our Lord apprenticed to St Joseph? I see nothing wrong with a man training and employing sons and others that he has a responsibility for as long as the young men are capable of mastering the work they are being tasked with and are interested in doing so. Surely to ban such would be anti-family.
Whether or not anti-family policy is recognised as such at the lower levels of a state organisation, it certainly is grasped higher up the chain of command. The powers that be aim to destroy the family and are therefore pushing the liberal / marxist / feminist mentality bent on “re-visioning” the traditional family (and its defender, the Catholic Church) as an institution of patriarchal oppression. According to their lackeys in government, the media and academia (especially the Schools of Sociology and Education), the family must be democratised: “male privilege” torn down and masculinity emasculated for the sake of gender equality in the home and workplace.
Even though the Cherokee County Personnel Policy referred to in Father’s post does not, at first glance, appear linked to attacks on pro-life organisations and the Church (the imprisonment of innocent priests, the damaging of church buildings etc … even inter-religious dialogue) each are pieces of the same whole cloth, hatred for Jesus Christ and His Church.
Quite right, Mum, quite right.
