Random Ramblings Friday Edition

Happy Friday. I managed to make it through another day alive. There is something to be said for that.

The bruising on my jaw from my tooth extraction before Christmas has mostly subsided. I look a little less like I have been brawling in back alleys.

Before I forget, I am going to try and do a little blog housekeeping over the weekend. I'm going to do additions to the blog roll. If you are missing or got accidentally deleted let me know and I will get you added.  If you haven't posted in a year or more, I just might purge you. You can never gauge my mood.

The Colts open the playoffs tomorrow against the evil Houstons.  Go horseshoes.  In any case we are only six weeks out from Spring Training. That very thought makes me smile.

The government remains shut down. The media is in near vapors. Funny, when the government was closed during the Obama years it was just "tough negotiating" by the god-like Chief Executive. Now a shut down is just further evidence the Apocolypse is at hand and Bezelbub is in the White House. Don't worry, you and I are going to pay those workers for sitting at home. Any unemployment they claim should be deducted from the back pay. Will it?

Have a great evening.

IF of course the federal government votes to give them back pay which they don't always do. Never mind the fact that over half the federal workforce is working without getting paid-with a large majority being entry level clerks and the like. As a retred fed with a husband who was aldo a federal employee for almost thirty years, I really wish that people would find someone else to use as a punching bag for awhile.

No one should work without pay.

No one should get paid for not working.

Private sector employees get laid off all of te time. Only fed workers expect to get paid the back pay when they are laid off.

If there are non-essential jobs being footed by taxpayers, why do those jobs exist?

The problem is with Congress. Those jerks should be working without pay too until this is worked out.

More to the point they should put up a banner behind the Speakers Dias that reads " Every dollar we spend was forceably taken from an American Citizen".
