If the Government Shuts Down


I am so sending one of these temper tantrum mats to every single obstructionist member of Congress.

My director at the VA said to me this morn, "Of course you'll still be working during your furlough."

Actually, I will be- writing a new grant- whether the gubermint shuts down or no. But I have DD#2 in college, and a mortgage to pay (memo to Wells Fargo: remember when the Feds bailed you guys out? How about bailing out one of the Federal worker drones during the shutdown? Puhleeze??), and food to buy, and utilities to pay.

Who can knit?

Come on children. Work together. Of course, they are still getting paid.

I have been following the news from here in Canada and I have to admit it boggles my mind. It is hard to believe it is grown-ups that have been elected to Congress and not junior high kids. I hope things get worked out soon and you are not left without a pay check.

Sorry about the "k said" identifier in the previous post. I don't know what happened. I pushed the return button by accident before I had filled in my name and it posted my message. Strange....
