About the U.S. government shutdown…

Personally, I think that every federal worker not being paid should immediately stop reporting to work.  Every one of them.  They should stay away until their jobs are funded through the remainder of the fiscal year and they are assured of being paid for all their unpaid work.  This will cause chaos and hardship.  So be it.  The Trump administration has already foisted chaos upon us all for a useless vanity project.  They created this mess and can make it go away any time they choose to do so.  Force them to choose.

Here is one example of a consequence of a total walkout:  Imagine the pressure that will be brought to bear on the White House when all commercial airline traffic stops due to the lack of air traffic controllers.  The federal workers have the power to force an end, if they choose to exert it.

Headline online and in newspapers across the nation:

President Trump proclaims April ‘sexual assault awareness month,’ despite numerous allegations against him

Yup, there are plenty of women who are aware that Trump assaulted them.  Maybe it will take a month to list them all?  Will there be a Victim of the Day?

The current president of the United States is a complete and total asshole.
