Amen!rally_toad wrote:. . . I just do not like people perpetuating myths like public servants are leeching off the system or that they're lazy, or that they get overtime pay for working regular hours, or that they make outrageous wages, when it just isn't true. Most public servants are doing what they do because they love it or they want to make a real difference, the NPS is a great example, as are teachers, as are most public servants. Obviously there are exceptions to this, but I hate when people make generalizations and attack hard working people. I haven't met a frontline ranger yet who doesn't give 110% and care deeply about what they are doing. If they went in to the NPS for the money they made a wrong choice.
God I hope so... I've already decided that every jack*** that voted in favor of the current extension is losing my vote when their terms are up. NEITHER side is even CLOSE to supporting the level of cuts needed to pull us from bankruptcy. That said, neither side ever WILL have the balls to go as far as is needed at this point...chumley wrote:And last time I checked, they still have to keep the sign at hand since the "deal" struck last week was a temporary 1-week extension. And now the extremes on both sides are balking at supporting their leadership, which might end up in the closure again! Doh!
