    Mike coming through again. Fighting absurdity with absurdity and humor. It's really a shame when the people we thought were our friends drop us in the grease. We are all Charlie Browns now, and we should tell the Lucys to shove it next time they come begging for anything.

    Great Lyrics! Do you have a link to an on-line version of someone actually singing the song? I would like to put it on my phone and use it as the ringtone for meetings. Thanks!

    Someone in my office suggested we make a recording and use it as our out of office on our furlough days. Sounds like a plan !!

  • Rob's quote from yesterday
    contrarian
    Rob If you're looking strictly at what's best for the federal employee then yes, we're better off with the GOP in the White House and a split or Dem controlled Congress. The Dems are much more likely to back feds when a Repub is in the White House. Once the Dems have the White House they get amnesia. No way would a democrat controlled congress accept a pay freeze by a Repub president nor would they go along with a repub president that didn't recommend pay parity with the military. We didn't get pay parity with the military for the only raise we got under Obama back in 2010 (despite total control by the Dems). No way would the Dems have allowed that if a Repub was in the White House. Fed employees who do as the unions say when it comes to voting need to wake up.

    I will read the quote later. However, it is the GOP that is giving us the sequestration, pay freezes, etc. by refusing to vote the necessary funds to run the government. And if you do not remember, Bush was in office during years of relative prosperity, while Obama has to fight the Bush and the Republicans Depression with GOP opposition. Additionally, you may not remember the Reagan years. He gave us a pay freeze in one year and a 2% pay raise the following year, but with a huge increase in our medical premiums and a large decrease in medical benefits.

  • What's that disclaimer investment advisors and mutual funds always use?
    FERS Fed
    Past performance is no guarantee of future results. ..... In the past, it may have been true that feds got better pay with a Republican in the White House. ..... After seeing Rep. Ryan's last two budgets, Mitt Romney's campaign platform, and the numerous GOP legislative proposals for federal employees' compensation, do you really truly believe we would be "better off with the GOP in the White House"? ..... Would you actually be willing to risk the balance of your career on it?

    FF: We're not doing all that great right now, in case you hadn't noticed. I've got to believe that a DC that functioned would have been better, but we don't have that. I really don't know what the game is right now, but clearly the lack of leadership is a strategy. Maybe you all can figure it out.
