excerpt:


*SNIP*

Several other observations need to be made. We are in a robust jobs economy due in part to President Trump’s economic policies of lower taxes and removing stifling government regulations. A Wall Street Journal column by Eric Morath points out that there are over seven million job openings in the private sector, a record high number dating back to 2000. The story shows that available jobs outnumber Americas looking for work. One economist was quoted as saying, “Employers are still looking to add workers, and the pool of potential hires continues to decline.” I will suggest that an ambitious and motivated furloughed federal employee would take advantage of this job-rich environment instead of sitting around whining about the unfairness of the government shutdown on their household budget. Many are no doubt living paycheck to paycheck and some over their means. It is not the responsibility of the U.S. taxpayer because of a federal worker’s lack of responsible household budgeting to pressure Congress to settle the budget impasse at the expense of national security along our southern border. Those households where both spouses are federal employees should look at this shutdown as an opportunity to reexamine the wisdom of that. If one of the wage earners was in the private sector today, they could weather the storm during shutdowns.

A Time magazine story epitomizes the mindset of one such federal government worker who put it this way. “Right now it feels like indentured servitude,” the employee said. “We just want the shutdown to end, for employees to be paid retroactively and for some provisions to be put into place where federal employees will not have to work without a paycheck,” said the federal worker who has been passing his time off during the furlough doing puzzles and volunteering. He says the third week marks the first time he’s felt real fear over his future. Welcome to the world of the private sector worker pal. It also makes me wonder if he is calling federal work indentured servitude or volunteering.

Recently the GOP controlled Senate passed a bill assuring that furloughed federal employees will be paid for time not worked during the partial shutdown, the same employees who do not and will not vote for them in future elections. Why does the GOP continue to sign their death warrant?

With over two million federal employees, our government has gone from being a provider of necessary services to an employment agency. They don’t produce profits and are grossly inefficient, leading taxpayers to fork over more of their hard-earned money to support their great pay, benefits and pensions keeping the world of the federal worker constant.

Time for this to change. Here is the opportunity.

Why am I reminded of the sign in our Purser's office? Failure to plan on your part, does not constitute an emergency on my part


And sitting around doing puzzles doesn't really sound like a "fear for his future".

What a poser.


Maybe the food inspectors, TSA, Border Patrol, etc., should quit. How whiny of them to expect a paycheck for their hours worked.

Or maybe we should fire the TSA, and Food Inspectors since they are not required in accordance with our Constitution and find local / state replacements for them? From the salaries we save we can build that wall, AND pay our border patrol personnel. Who are Constitutionally mandated.

Apparently they are living the good life while the people INSIDE the US are toiling away.
