  • new balls
    deployed decoy
    I know where we can get 100 new balls to play with... But that only solves the senate problem and will take 5 more years to get enough balls for the amateur league to kick around across the hall.

  • Don't forget the 260 or so in the House
    Moderate
    That is an estimate of the number of Republicans in the House. They definitely need to be replaced.

  • IT DOES MAKE BAD THEATER
    BeanerECMO
    Although portrayed that federal paychecks are being held hostage and the government may shut down. History has shown that even if the government is shut down except for the chosen and many people are not on the job; the checks for those not on the job are only delayed not disbursed. Just recently, the 4,000+ FAA workers that were furloughed and not on the job still received their checks.

  • Appearances
    Moderate
    You appear to imply that these people should not be paid. Perhaps your pension should be held hostae in the same way that government workers' salaries are held hostage. Your attitude might just change. You are and have always been a regressive who was trained to read by sweatshop owners and got a job beating union progressives who tried to get decent working conditions for the middle class.

  • Details please

    I haven't seen any reports about the FedEmp cuts. They may give you 2% here but take 2% there, in this shell game that is DC. Is this really the government we deserve?

  • Excepted Service
    Radar Tech
    Ok, so excepted service folks are expected to keep going to work...wait for it...without pay. We are expected to work without pay for an indefinite period. If we fail to go to work without pay, our employment can be terminated for being "absent without leave". Working without pay is servitude if it is involuntary. Threatened termination of employment is coercion. How is this constitutional? Non-excepted service folks get to draw unemployment during a furlough and then they receive back pay when employment resumes. This, in essence, is paid leave for them (albeit, stressful and financially detrimental). For the excepted service personnel, it is untenable. A provision should be made that excepted service personnel can at least draw unemployment while they are working in a deferred pay status. I can last about a month in a non-payed/deferred pay status. After that, you all will have to do without radar services, because I will be busy finding some way of feeding my family. I was born a free man and I will not be a slave to the government.

  • You will be paid
    Moderate
    You are working for deferred pay. Please excuse my ignorance, but I assume that the government is required to pay you when the money is appropriated. Non essential me is not required to be paid. In the past they have paid the non essentials but you never know. Also, if the non essentials get paid, they must return their unemployment checks. if all of this, I believe you made some excellent points. The idiots in Congress should understand this and not put government workers through this nonsense.

    Or you could just crank it up to full ERP. Lower the look angle and cook the gizzards out of the lower elevation people. Think Donor Party, in the Sierra so many years ago. Tastes like chicken... If you are lucky a charter jet full on congress persons will slam into the mountain below your facility.
