    what the fuck do you think is going on in the private sector?? Pay freeze? That would be a bonus to the poor fuckers who's unemployment has run out. Get real. Business is down. I own my own little piece of the American dream and I've had to give myself a fucking pay cut. I buy my clothes at Savers fer chrissakes. I can't understand some of the knee jerk crap I read here. Rec list? Puhleeeeese...

      yourself a pay cut is due to your own incompetence? I mean, let's judge you the same way people judge union and gavernment workers, and the unemployed. You probably are lacking in skills needed to excel, or needed to apply yourself harder, maybe get some more education.

        Ah, the "narrative": government workers are lazy, stupid and incompetent. I never suggested that, you did. a $52,0000 a year job with vacations, holidays, s.s. benefits, sick days, and pension papers out to over $100,000 a year. Just sayin'.

          and is once again as you run through their

          $52,0000 a year job with vacations, holidays, s.s. benefits, sick days, and pension papers out to over $100,000 a year.

          The implication is they don't deserve this. Or better yet, that, since someone has it worse, they should be "glad they have a job". Don't you see your misplaced envy, if applied logically, would mean that no one who has any job (show shine boy, prostitute, even a slave) would have justification to complain of a worsening in their pay or work conditions because "somebody has it worse"?

      •  Ludicrous. Take a look at the economy (0+ / 0-)

        Great Recession. Everyone is suffering. Federal workers need to share in the suffering along with everyone else.
