theLiquorI never feel bad for government employees (military aside) during a sequester/government shutdown. So many of us have to budget as if we expect to lose our job next month yet government employees either need to not show up to work for a whole month or sexually assault someone to lose their job. Then they get federal holidays, and want all the pity in the world when they dont get paid for 2 weeks
So apply for a government job and clear brush out of ponds, suck human shit out of manholes or run traffic control for accidents on the freeway. If you aren’t a total fuck up you can work for the people it’s not some anointed privilege for the few.
