THE PENTAGON JUST ORDERED OVER 300,000 CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES BACK TO WORK IN SPITE OF THE SHUTDOWN!
WHY DO THEY THINK THIS MANY WORKERS OUGHT TO BE ON THE JOB?
THAT'S A LITTLE CREEPY, ISN'T IT?
ARE THEY AFRAID OF RIOTS, OF WHAT COULD HAPPEN WITH TROOPS NOT GETTING PAID, OF A PUBLIC GROWING ANGRIER EVERY DAY?
IS IT THE RECENT GUNFIRE AT THE FEDERAL BUILDING IN WEST VIRGINIA, THE YOUNG MOTHER THEY SHOT DEAD IN D.C. WHO TRIED TO BREAK DOWN THE BARRIERS AT THE WHITE HOUSE, THE MAN WHO SET HIMSELF ON FIRE ON THE NATIONAL MALL THE IRATE CITIZEN WHO ATTACKED THE REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN, THE DETERMINED WW2 VETS THAT BREACHED THE BARRIERS TO VISIT A MONUMENT?
IS THE PENTAGON IN NEED OF THAT MANY WORKERS? REALLY?
The Pentagon’s 801,000 civilians exceed the combined size of the active-duty Navy and Air Force.
October 5, 2013
<<WASHINGTON—The Pentagon on Saturday said it would call most of its 350,000 furloughed civilian workers back to their jobs, concluding that a recent law allows officials to consider them critical to protecting national security.
The Pentagon employs the largest share of the 800,000 federal workers sent home during the government shutdown. It has been forced to halt military training for many personnel, shutter commissaries, send intelligence analysts home and suspend a range of activities.
The Defense Department's announcement came as the House of Representatives voted unanimously to provide back pay to all furloughed federal workers once the shutdown ends.
The 407-0 vote reflected rare agreement between Republicans and Democrats, who said that the federal workers should not be pawns in a larger political fight over government spending priorities.>>
YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT, BOYS! YOU TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR FELLOW FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND TO HELL WITH 9 MILLION INFANTS, SMALL KIDS, AND PREGNANT WOMEN DEPENDING ON THE SOON-TO-CLOSE "WIC" PROGRAM FOR MILK AND FORMULA!
SURE CALL BACK THE SERVANTS TO THE MILITARY COMPLEX, BUT NOT THOSE INVOLVED WITH GETTING OUT BENEFITS TO THOSE RETIRED VETERANS, ELDERLY, AND POOR WHO NEED EMERGENCY HEATING FUNDS, NOR THOSE WHO CAN MAKE SURE OUR VETERANS ARE WELL-PROVIDED FOR DURING YOUR MELODRAMA OVER THE LIE THAT THE SHUTDOWN WILL "STOP OBAMACARE"!
CALL BACK THE ONES WHO CAN ASSIST THE 'DOGS OF WAR', BUT TELL YOUR HONORED VETERANS THEY PROBABLY WON'T GET THEIR BENEFITS AFTER OCTOBER!
FURLOUGH THOSE WHO ACTUALLY HELPED US ALL, BUT YOU KEEP PICKING UP YOUR PAYCHECKS, YOU CONGRESS OF HARLOTS!
TO HELL WITH EVERYTHING BUT THE CONGRESS AND THE PENTAGON!
<<Robert Hale, the Pentagon's comptroller, estimated that the department would bring back at least 90% of its furloughed workers. He said the number of department workers on furlough was about 350,000, refining earlier estimates that 400,000 would be sent home, or about half of all federal workers who were put on furlough.>>
YOU SEE THAT? THE PENTAGON'S BUDGET ALONE FOR THAT MANY CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES IS ENORMOUS! FAR MORE THAN THE $40 BILLION THE HAMPTON'S/CAYMAN ISLANDS BUNCH UP ON THE HILL JUST TOOK AWAY FROM THOSE WHO HAVE NO JOBS AND HAVE CHILDREN, OR ARE ELDERLY AND DISABLED!
I TOLD YOU TO REMEMBER THE NUMBERS FROM THE 400,000 DEFENSE DEPARTMENT'S CIVILIAN PAYCHECKS.
$48 BILLION FOR 400,000 EMPLOYEES.
WELL, HOW DOES THAT COMPARE TO THE 47 MILLION AMERICANS WHO ARE OUT OF WORK OR UNDEREMPLOYED, WHO ARE ELDERLY OR DISABLED, VETERANS, FAMILIES OF OUR OVERSEAS MILITARY, AND WHO HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO PUT FOOD ON THEIR TABLES?
THE CONGRESS TOOK ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT AWAY FROM 47 MILLION NEEDY AMERICANS AS THEY ARE GLADLY PAYING A MEAGER 400,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES. THEY VALUE THAT 400,000 MORE THAN THAT 47 MILLION, DON'T YOU SEE THAT?
CONGRESS CAN MAKE EXCUSES WHY THOSE 47 MILLION "DESERVE" THE CUT, BUT WHO CAN MAKE EXCUSES FOR 400,000 CIVILIAN DEFENSE WORKERS?
OVER 800,000 CIVILIAN FEDERAL EMPLOYEES?
WHERE IS THE LOGIC IN THAT?
WHY IS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT ENORMOUS?
HER FOUNDERS NEVER INTENDED FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO BE THIS HUGE!
<<"We are going to pay all the federal employees, as we should, but we're going to pay them to stay at home," said Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D., Md.), summarizing what he said was the Republican policy. "It's an absolutely absurd position."
"I'm pretty willing to bet that there are enough votes in the House of Representatives right now to make sure that the United States doesn't end up being a deadbeat," Mr. Obama told the Associated Press. "The only thing that's preventing that from happening is Speaker Boehner calling the vote."
Mr. Boehner has said the nation's borrowing limit should not be raised unless paired with a deficit-reduction package or other GOP policy goals.>>
TRANSLATION: BO(EH)NER WANTS TO COVER THE BEHINDS OF HIS TOP-PAYING CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTORS AND MAKE SURE THEY DON'T SUFFER ANY MAJOR LO$$E$ FROM PAYING FOR INSURANCE, OR FROM HIGHER TAXES, NOR HAVE TO RAISE THE PATHETIC "MINIMUM WAGE".
IF THE DEMOCRATS WILL HAND HIM THOSE ASSURANCES, SURE HE'LL LET THE HOSTAGE, AMERICA, GO FREE...UNTIL NEXT TIME!
REPUBLICANS HAVE TAKEN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HOSTAGE, ARE DEMANDING RANSOM, AND AMERICA IS ALLOWING THIS?
WISH BO(EH)NER WAS MAN ENOUGH TO JUST CALL OBAMA OUT ON THE CAPITOL MALL AND GO AT IT TOE-TO-TOE WITH HIM, BEST MAN WIN.
SICK OF SEEING HIS RACISM CONSTANTLY SHOWING AND SICK OF HIS WHINING ABOUT "DOING WHAT'S BEST FOR AMERICANS".
HE AND HIS COHORTS ONLY WANT TO DO WHAT'S BEST FOR THEIR BIG CONTRIBUTORS AND THOSE THEY ARE WHORES TO ON WALL STREET.

AND, IN LIGHT OF THE CONGRESSMAN BEING ATTACKED THE OTHER DAY AFTER THE SHUTDOWN, THE CAPITOL POLICE SHOOTING AN UNARMED MOTHER WITH HER 1-YEAR OLD BABY IN THE CAR NEAR THE WHITE HOUSE/CONGRESS A COUPLE DAYS AGO, AND THE POOR GUY WHO SET HIMSELF ON FIRE ON THE NATIONAL MALL YESTERDAY (see links below for those stories) , YOU REALLY SHOULD THINK ABOUT THIS SUDDEN RECALL OF THE PENTAGRAM'S (PENTAGON'S) CIVILIANS, AND THIS "NATIONAL EMERGENCY" BULL.
JUST A FEW MORE "INCIDENTS" UP D.C. WAY AND WE MAY FALL RIPE TO "MARTIAL LAW" TO QUELL "THE RIOTING AND CIVIL UNREST" OVER THIS INSANE SHUTDOWN AS MORE AND MORE MAINSTREAM AMERICANS FEEL THE BITE OF IT.
REMAIN CALM, DON'T BE DUPED INTO "VIOLENT CIVIL UNREST".
THEY HAVE KILLED TWO PEOPLE NOW WHO "GOT VIOLENT".
ATTACK YOUR ELECTED TRAITOROUS DOGS AT THE POLLS, NOT COMING OUT OF THEIR CAPITOL HILL LAIRS.
HIT THE RABID WOLVES (APOLOGIES TO WOLVES) AT THE VOTING MACHINES!
VOTE THE LIARS OUT!
WE ALSO NEED TO THINK ABOUT WHITTLING DOWN THE PENTAGON STAFF...ALMOST 400,000 CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES FOR ONE AGENCY IS WAY TOO MANY!
THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS GROWN TOO LARGE TO MAINTAIN IN THIS ECONOMY, NOR SHOULD THE NUMBERS BE THIS HIGH,AND WE NEED TO LOWER THOSE NUMBERS.,,STARTING AT THE TOP.
OF THAT ALMOST 1 MILLION CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS, THE SUPREME COURT, ET AL, DO YOU HONESTLY KNOW OF A SINGLE ONE THAT IS UPHOLDING OUR ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION AND WORKING FOR NOT AGAINST, BUT FOR "WE THE PEOPLE"?
WE'RE NO LONGER BEING GOVERNED, WE'RE BEING OVERSEEN, WE HAVE OVERSEERS, NOT REPRESENTATIVES TO SPEAK IN OUR VOICES.
WE HAVE TREASONOUS DICTATORS WHO HAVE SOLD THEIR SOULS TO THE HIGHEST BIDDERS AND LEFT US AWASH IN THE FILTH OF THEIR WAKE AS THEY HURRY TO SERVE THE FEW, THE 1%.
~ YOUNG MOTHER WITH BABY IN CAR SHOT DEAD BY CAPITOL POLICE
By the time the ensuing chase ended, dozens of shots had been fired and two officers were injured. The child was unharmed.
What occurred next was not clear. Ms. Carey managed to get out of the car, and was shot by several officers. According to a law enforcement official, she was not armed, and it was not known whether she presented an immediate danger.
~MAN SETS HIMSELF ON FIRE ON THE NATIONAL MALL
THAT MAN HAS DIED OF HIS BURNS.
~CONGRESSMAN ATTACKED BY SHOUTING MAN
A screaming man — possibly upset about the government shutdown — grabbed onto U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin as he walked to the Longworth House Office Building Wednesday night, Roll Call reports.
Duffy was unhurt and declined to give details about the assault.
Published on Oct 1, 2013 BY HUFFINGTON POST...With just hours to go until a government shutdown, Congressmen couldn't seem to agree on much except the fact that drinks were in order.
