  •  Little chance for comp pay (0+ / 0-)

    Due to the sequester, many agencies are not paying $ for comp or credit hours, they are giving comp leave hours--which generally can only accumulate up to some fairly low point anyway before they are use or lose.

    So it's not accurate to blithely assert feds can just make up lost pay on the weekend.

    •  They're going to catch up on the missed work (0+ / 0-)

      somehow, right?

      Or if not, and the Republic does not fall, then maybe it was not so essential after all and maybe we have too many government workers.

      •  True colors (0+ / 0-)

        Above you argue that they can make up the lost pay, but here you drop the veil and show that was never a concern for you.

        I think you took a turn down the wrong intertube.  RedState was to the right a ways back.
