Oh you poor poor put upon little precious one, all this talk about "people wanting to get their own way"
is upsetting you.
My heart pumps little peanut butter balls for you, crunchy style!
While roughly 800,000 government employees have already begun missing paychecks
because of the shutdown and likely won’t see back pay until after it’s resolved, another subset of workers isn’t going to be paid at all.
So, we're not JUST talking about 800 thousand federal workers, we're also talking about another couple of million people whose jobs depend upon contracts WITH the government, people like janitors, security guards, and cafeteria servers, even people in IT, project management and research, and we haven't even begun to talk about vulnerable disabled, elderly, homeless children, or Coast Guard personnel.
This is a right wing shutdown, a rolling coup d'etat attempt.
Programs designed to help the vulnerable are gutted, while institutions designed to serve the rich and powerful remain unscathed. It's a heavily choreographed and advance planned deliberate starvation of the liberal side of government by the GOP.
But you'll change your tune, the first time you have a meal of foods that weren't adequately inspected, and you wind up with a food borne illness, or when you wind up missing one or more flights because you couldn't get through security in time, or because your tax return money was delayed, or because a disease epidemic starts plaguing the countryside
, and even your safe little community.
Last but not least, Trump and McConnell's recent actions have proven that it's not about the wall and never was.
It's Trump's attempt to frighten House Democrats and to squash their effectiveness and therefore, if we reward Trump the Hostage Taker, he's going to respond with bigger and more expensive hostages from now on.
So no. No way. NO. WAY. IN. HELL.
