Eliminate the box??

In today's news, Obama wants to "eliminate the box" on federal job applications where applicants have to disclose if they have a criminal record. Sounds like another idea from a man who has never run a private sector business.

Here's my side of the story. Over the last 40 years, I have employed several people who were in prison and on work release. I have employed several people who had been in prison and many who had criminal records. My experience is that they fail or succeed at about the same rate as the rest of the population.

I also want to know about whether applicants graduated from high school and where they have worked before. Will Obama move to remove that information from the applications for federal employees also? Why bother having them apply? Just hire anyone who shows up!!

Come to think of it, this is how the electorate hired Obama. Can't prove where he was born, can't find out details about his education, there is more solid data about vampires than Obama's past. He just seems to have fallen out of the sky and into his job. Should we follow this path with all federal employees?
