Re: Federal Workers got their first zero paycheck.
I spent 12 months before my assault of having every other weekly paycheck being about $20 because of all the entitlements being taken out.

Tighten your belts and buck up.

At least you will get back pay.

My income and life's work was stolen "fair and square" and I have about 20 years worth of rebuilding to do, but I won't likely live long enough to have my own place ever again.

How do I know this, because I'm a non-union white straight male, and I am not eligible for any kind of help, having always pulled more than my own weight.

I really don't understand how so much "help" is available in this country to so many, yet not for me, because I have been tagged somehow with a "producer" label, and not eligible for help while I still breathe. Forty two years of paying into the system has earned me squat... I have another 10 years to go.

My best hope is myrocardial infarction or anuerism and a quick death at work; at least I would no longer support parasites.

"Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order [referring to the 1991 LA Riot]. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond [i.e., an "extraterrestrial" invasion], whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.

- Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure; one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it." - David Rockefeller

"The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries... We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis, and the nations will accept the New World Order." - David Rockefeller

Re: Federal Workers got their first zero paycheck.
First off, federal worker is an oxymoron.
They got a stub with zeroes yesterday and some of them posted it crying about it, possibly expecting or eliciting sympathy.
When they get their next check with money, let them post THAT and see how much sympathy they get.
I call them social parasites.
 Quoting: Tyrone Slothrop


No, you're wrong. "First off", not all federal workers are lazy scum. And many of those that are weren't that way before they entered federal service. Working for the federal government can -and will- corrupt even the purest of hearts. TRUST ME on this!

Secondly, if they did go into federal service with some measure of integrity, why should you condemn them for finding a well-paying job with some of the best bennies around? Sounds pretty SMART to me! Beyond that: once upon a time the government only wanted the BEST and the BRIGHTEST - and you had to take a 4hr Civil Service exam to prove that you could do the job. Anything less than a 72% score and you were out the door. Today, those standards have been lowered to the point where a functional illiterate can qualify... and if you happen to have a disability [mental or physical], you are automatically management material. Want to know where THAT came from? Read on....

Thirdly, the workers didn't create such an uneven playing field, it was the federal Agencies themselves -or more accurately- their employee UNIONS that did! People are very quick to accuse the government of overpaying it's employees but the TRUTH of the matter is that the UNIONS are the ones that actually set those rates [through nearly endless contract arbitrations that make the current federal impasse pale in comparison], right along with the other exorbidant demands for employee "parity"... which is already skewed so far above the private sector that it's an insult to all working Americans.

Now: admittedly there ARE thousands of really worthless federal employees. I'm a retired fed myself [who had to pass that monster 700-series Battery exam to get hired] and at one time it was my job to make sure everybody else did their work... and I was hated for it.

I was called a mean, vicious Supervisor just because I demanded that everybody EARN the paychecks they received... I was just doing MY job. It was nearly a lose-lose situation for me personally: I learned at my Daddy's knee that every man should give an honest days work for an honest days wages, but when those wages are so far above the national mean that some of those people couldn't earn that kind of money even if they worked 24/7/365, it quickly becomes a lost cause. And my integrity was constantly getting me into hot water not only with upper mgmnt but primarily those SOCIALISTIC, all-powerful UNIONS. The stress from fighting them both nearly killed me and I took an early retirement... even though if I had stuck it out for just a few more years, I would've been "set" for life. When I left, my retirement benefits were cut by 2/3. But it was worth it just to escape that snakepit.

As it is, I may only get a small monthly federal pension and my Social Security but as least I still have my self-respect intact!

And Sir, you are absolutely correct: those federal employees whining about empty paychecks are ungrateful Bastards who obviously never gave a damn about their country or their jobs - jobs that are supposed to make this a better nation for ALL citizens. They ARE parasites and all they care about is the money... and never mind that oath they swore to uphold when they were hired... if they took one at all! I did. And I honored it every day I was on the job. I have that to be proud of, too.

This is not the first time I have seen people say they have no money when they likely have thousands socked away in a 401(k). I even lent money to someone like that, which was stupid of me, but I did get paid back. All these federal workers will have a decent pension when they retire while most of us not working for the government will only have SS when we retire. They should also realize that one of the risks of working for the feds is that the government will get shut down every couple of years because that seems to be what happens and they should prepare.

It’s true in the DC area. They don’t tolerate republicans here at all. The prevailing attitude is vote Democrat and vote yourself bennies. Barbara Comstock lost her election to a flat out Libtard with crazy demon eyes Jennifer Wexton who took down the POW flag outside her office and replaced it with the tranny flag.

Re: Federal Workers got their first zero paycheck.
First off, federal worker is an oxymoron.
They got a stub with zeroes yesterday and some of them posted it crying about it, possibly expecting or eliciting sympathy.
When they get their next check with money, let them post THAT and see how much sympathy they get.
I call them social parasites.
 Quoting: Tyrone Slothrop


No, you're wrong. "First off", not all federal workers are lazy scum. And many of those that are weren't that way before they entered federal service. Working for the federal government can -and will- corrupt even the purest of hearts. TRUST ME on this!

Secondly, if they did go into federal service with some measure of integrity, why should you condemn them for finding a well-paying job with some of the best bennies around? Sounds pretty SMART to me! Beyond that: once upon a time the government only wanted the BEST and the BRIGHTEST - and you had to take a 4hr Civil Service exam to prove that you could do the job. Anything less than a 72% score and you were out the door. Today, those standards have been lowered to the point where a functional illiterate can qualify... and if you happen to have a disability [mental or physical], you are automatically management material. Want to know where THAT came from? Read on....

Thirdly, the workers didn't create such an uneven playing field, it was the federal Agencies themselves -or more accurately- their employee UNIONS that did! People are very quick to accuse the government of overpaying it's employees but the TRUTH of the matter is that the UNIONS are the ones that actually set those rates [through nearly endless contract arbitrations that make the current federal impasse pale in comparison], right along with the other exorbidant demands for employee "parity"... which is already skewed so far above the private sector that it's an insult to all working Americans.

Now: admittedly there ARE thousands of really worthless federal employees. I'm a retired fed myself [who had to pass that monster 700-series Battery exam to get hired] and at one time it was my job to make sure everybody else did their work... and I was hated for it.

I was called a mean, vicious Supervisor just because I demanded that everybody EARN the paychecks they received... I was just doing MY job. It was nearly a lose-lose situation for me personally: I learned at my Daddy's knee that every man should give an honest days work for an honest days wages, but when those wages are so far above the national mean that some of those people couldn't earn that kind of money even if they worked 24/7/365, it quickly becomes a lost cause. And my integrity was constantly getting me into hot water not only with upper mgmnt but primarily those SOCIALISTIC, all-powerful UNIONS. The stress from fighting them both nearly killed me and I took an early retirement... even though if I had stuck it out for just a few more years, I would've been "set" for life. When I left, my retirement benefits were cut by 2/3. But it was worth it just to escape that snakepit.

As it is, I may only get a small monthly federal pension and my Social Security but as least I still have my self-respect intact!

And Sir, you are absolutely correct: those federal employees whining about empty paychecks are ungrateful Bastards who obviously never gave a damn about their country or their jobs - jobs that are supposed to make this a better nation for ALL citizens. They ARE parasites and all they care about is the money... and never mind that oath they swore to uphold when they were hired... if they took one at all! I did. And I honored it every day I was on the job. I have that to be proud of, too.

You totally contradicted yourself in 4 paragraphs, well done sub IQ ex federal employee.
 Quoting: newworldicon



If you'd care to elaborate I'd be more than happy to discuss it with you. Perhaps it's not so much what I wrote but rather your reading comprehension skills?

Here's a dumbed-down version of what I wrote above:


1. Many employees go into federal service with the best of intentions but are soon derailed by the blatant, widespread corruption.
2. Those that do enter federal service should be smart people because they have to meet given criteria for employment; however, that criteria can change from person to person through union intervention with many of those people seriously unqualified for their jobs.
3. The employees per se are not to blame for the system they have entered; it was created long ago by an alliance between Mmgnt and Unions that have created a big differential between federal and private sector wages/benefits/standards.

3A: That the Democratic-led federal unions are largely responsible for much of the corruption among the federal workforce.

4. There are many federal employees who are inherantly lazy and only there for a fat paycheck and they are in the majority.
5. I was a by-the-book Supervisor who got hammered by both mgmnt and the unions for insisting that people do their damned jobs.
6. After 20 years I'd had enough and took an early retirement at a personal loss.
7. That those federal employees currently griping about their paychecks are the ones who only took those well-paying jobs because that's all that mattered to them: the money. Not their service oath, or to benefit their nation or fellow citizens... but for the cash.


Does that clarify my comments a bit more, Precious?

Somehow, I doubt it.

A lot of #FederalWorkers are posting pictures of the $0 pay stubs they received during this current #GovernmentShutdown. Why is no one asking where the money came from that was wasted on printing them?

Re: Federal Workers got their first zero paycheck.
Everyone that had or has the potential of being directly or downstream affected by lack of income has credit cards to cover the hole.

Back pay has already been voted on by both houses of congress and signed by the president. When the back pay comes in you pay down the credit cards. Been doing this since '71 so it's an old hat routine. Just eat the interest and service charges (if any if it's a short stay)

You can bet they don't have to work back hours though. They are getting a free vacation at taxpayer expense for being non-essential, overpaid, parasites.

Trump should offer to replace all "non-essential" federal workers with illegal aliens and see how these bleeding heart open borders commies respond.
