    I mean to each their own, but even if you just consider that about half of the people are being forced to work without pay. One would think you would be a little more considerate.

Yeah those folks that have to work (FBI, TSA, and ironically Immigration) w/o pay are getting screwed over. There is currently a case brought by one of the Employee Unions before the Courts which questions if this is legal. Personally I'm thinking the Court will side with them as it is very much akin to indentured servitude. What will Congress do then? They can't very well send all the law enforcers home and await the chaos that will follow.

    I would hardly considerate a vacation if it was draining my savings account for no reason. It is good that you and HT are having a grand old time but most federal workers, based on polling, are not agreeing with you too much.

I make no claim to speak for anyone other than myself. I'm in year 26 of what will likely be a 30 year career. If I can't go a couple of months without a paycheck at this point, I have made some serious mistakes when it comes to planning my retirement.

    The longer it goes, the worse it will be.

When the second two-week paycheck doesn't go out, I think that is really going to ratchet up the pressure on all parties concerned.
