  •  Give them all the government they want (2+ / 0-)

    My good friend, a federal employee, worked from time to time over the past decade in emergency response--it wasn't his "real job," but he served in "surge capacity" when needed and got to fill a particular niche that no one else quite fills.  He educated others in his agency on that niche but he's really the one who knows how to do it, and in the position to devote time to it, and really to potentially save lives.

    And he's at the point now where, if it's a Tea Party district, or, say, Texas, in danger, well, they voted for people who want to take food out of his kids' mouths, money out of his pocket.  People who want less government.  I don't know as he's going to go out of his way to do any surge capacity for people who, through their votes, have told him to go fuck himself.

    I kind of doubt he's alone in feeling that way.
