So now that employees of the federal government are without a paycheck for the first time, Chuck and Nancy claim that the evil Donald Trump is responsible for the employees’ pain because he will not approve a budget that does not include money for a border wall to protect the American border with Mexico. One wonders why Nancy Pelosi doesn’t remind the check-less government employees of the great, unique and mind-expanding opportunity they have at the moment to really enjoy themselves while unemployed and unpaid.
During the Obama years, and the high level of unemployment Americans experienced during those dark days, Nancy missed no occasion in which she could tell people who couldn’t find jobs of the wonderful chance they have to do things they could not do when they had to work all day. She reminded them of the hikes they could take; the pictures they could paint in order to get back in touch with their younger selves; the poetry they could write, now that they don’t have to worry about driving in rush-hour traffic each day. They could consider their lack of employment as “fun-employment“, not unemployment.
The DC swamp’s leaders in the Democrat party are causing great danger and uncertainty to spread across America by not being willing to pay the relatively insignificant sum that President Trump wants, in order to build a wall to protect our southern border from invaders from foreign countries.
So I would advise the government employees, most, or all of whom, vote Democrat in order to keep the government as large as possible and to keep spending deficit money beyond anything this nation can ever repay, to enjoy their “fun-employment” and learn to re-create themselves, just like we lesser, unsophisticated beings out here in fly-over country were encouraged to do by Ms. Pelosi during the years when Barack Obama tried his best to “fundamentally transform America”.
America’s elite rulers are not getting paychecks and the rest of us are supposed to shed tears? Having been without a paycheck once before during a union strike in my own work life, I have no tears to shed for a government that refuses to protect the citizens of this nation from a virtual invasion from every nation in the world, coming at us from south of the border.
