Lets guess on the top 10 fed stories for 2011; I'll post my top 3:

3. A penny pay raise, to be paid in cash, sent by the Obama administration to all executive branch employess. The penny will have his bust on the obverse.

2. A 'government does suck' parade sponsored by the Republican pary with bipartisian support from the Democrats. Federal employess will receive 4 hours of forced unpaid administrative leave to attend this event.

1. A national registry of addresses of federal employees will be posted on the web so that you can see if a 'Fed' lives in your neighboorhood.
