It’s crystal clear, nobody had an idea what the president’s ‘hope and change’ was all about when he introduced it. A clear understanding of it still jets over the heads of the country’s lower than low, ‘low information voters.’
Because of the government shut down, only about 100 out of 3100 of NASA’s employees are working. That would directly imply that about 3000 of the space center’s employees are non essential. These non essential employees will be out and about around the space center protesting today. They want to send a message to Congress to end the shut down.
Why pick on Congress? One would think, government union employees would know, Congress is required by law to operate on a budget. Of those protesting to send a message to Congress, one would wonder, how many of them operate on budgets in their homes? A safe bet would be, all of them, and as such, why not the country?
For five years the country has only experienced the stark cold reality of a whole lot of despair under this administration. For five years, the country has operated without a budget, passing temporary scapegoats that always ends up exactly where we are today, facing that same old stark cold reality of a whole lot of despair.
Have these federal employees union members ever wondered why there is no budget, a government shut down and another impending debt ceiling argument on the way? The president, the one you don’t blame, will not extend the individual mandate of his jacked up health care plan. He did it for everybody else, except you, your family, friends and loved ones.
Your entire protest is misdirected, your target, Congress is looking out for you. You should be targeting the president. You know the one who blames, even his birth on Republicans. Every day, this guy is out and about, demeaning, belittling, bad mouthing and blaming Republicans, but not in the faces of Congress, but to a bunch of lower than low, ‘low information voters.’
Your protest should be demanding him to shut up the rhetoric, extend the individual mandate and end the shut down. If not, accept this, you are exactly where the President of the United States of America wants you to be, non essential, unemployed and looking to the government for blessings.
