That's because global warming is a governmental conspiracy; and as long as the government is shut down, there can't be any climate change.

With all these government workers gone home maybe we will have some freedon and peace and quiet for a change. No busybody lieberals telling us how to live our lives. Hopefully everyone will realize we don't need 2/3 of the government workers and they'll be permanently laid off.

Not to mention the thousands and thousands of taxpayer dollars filched from the taxpayers to finance this monstrosity of fraud and deceit, this little screed of lies scribbled up by craven feminist clerks and then signed by three Grand Poobahs of Depravity.

Did your momma ever make a secret rule to be obeyed around the house? Like you had to stay 100 yds. away from your little sister, Myrtle Mae? Did your momma then punish you for breaking the rule even though she hadn't even told you what the rule was and you had no idea it existed? And even though you hadn't even broken the rule?

Damn, 100 yards? Usually parents just send siblings to separate rooms.

Little Myrtle Mae also lied on you. She said you yelled at her and called her names but would not give any details and would not say what the names were. She also said Bertha heard the yelling and name-calling, but Bertha would not say that. She declined to confirm. Bertha refused to be a witness to the lies, so then little Myrtle Mae told your mommy, "Bertha sat on the porch and heard it all" -- using hearsay being another low technique of the liar and gossip.

The lesson in depravity to be taken from this is that when you lie, be vague. It's easier to pull off a fraud, and make sure you don't have 12 jurors there to sift the testimony. Have you a specially shopped and selected, corrupt, blinking tic-head, dingbat davidiot, emotionally tortured and dysfunctional and disfigured judge instead.

For this is now the law of the land.

Pedophiles don't get aroused over frumpy old sows. Willard knows this from his own personal experience.

You've bragged about doing it, and also doing it out at the 47 Gill Branch farm. I got you bragging about it in print.
There Willard Hartsock goes again exposing himself, projecting his juvenile convictions for indecent exposure at school and in the neighborhood of his sad and tragically humiliated parents who bore this pathetic bad seed, this throwback urchin from before history when pre-humans walked on all fours and dug grubs and pignuts to live on.

You are a drooling slobbering idiot with a torn, dripping rectal sleeve hanging out your rear because of prison banging and wear-and-tear with Big Antwan. So the witch hazel makes it feel better, soothes the excruciating pain and inflammation? Tell us more about it, wifebeater, and whether you are sorry you beat your wife Beth because had you not done it you wouldn't have gone to prison and thrown down and bent over like a biatch and made into Big Antwan's old lady.

BTW, Tuesday is a do-drop-in from 9 to 11 before the goons of our corrupt rughead DA's office (Moe Ron Moore's); and a bureaucratic grunt prothonotary like official documents alteration, forgery, and scrubbing expert, Stevie Cogburn. It is what is called, although a dumb sea-monkey like you wouldn't understand, "an initial appearance." You are welcome to come and watch. Tuck in that hanging rectal tissue and put a sanitary napkin on it so it doesn't drip down your little bird legs. And keep ten paces away from me because I don't want to smell you. At some other place and time I would be happy to give you a pill for it.

As someone who has worked union and had to strike, non union to be sent home with no work and/or layed off because of budgetary reasons(which was actually used on the final review/exit paper work). I know of lockouts as well.

I have no sympathy especially when I see these government workers getting back pay for doing nothing. No work sucks but it is a fact of life. There are no guarantees.

Kowtowing by the "PROfessional" politicians for votes, that's all it was.

A union is just as bad as an oligopoly when it comes to the consumer.

What do you think "striking" does to prices and the consumer? It limits the availability of goods, raises prices, and pisses off the consumer.

Unions had their place. It was 50 years ago. Now all they do is jack up prices. Reference GM vehicles. Who wants one anyway? They will put themselves out of business sooner just due to the cost of labor.

Reduce the supply of labor, increase prices. Of course, for the few that are employed, wages do increase, but it's harder to find a job for those who don't have one.

The unions had their place and the strikes were part of taking that job. Point was you have no guarantees to continuous uninterrupted employment. The furloughed workers had no right to pay for time not worked. Some of the biggest unions are government unions and yet they cannot walk the talk.
