A post from a girl I went to school with...

6 hours ago
Soooo yeh, I debated on whether I wanted to 'socially' weigh in on the government shutdown events of TODAY (and I also know that as a federal employee I can't say but so much so I will just give you some things to think about)...here goes...a lot of random thoughts here but maybe it will shed some light to many who may legitimately don't fully understand what it's all about and want to learn about it OR for those who are just making ignorant assumptions and comments...(Please open your minds people)....

First of all I am so grateful to God to be in the place that I am today, to be able to handle a short term situation that we are currently in (in prayers that it wont last long)...however, little did I know...the feeling of seeing GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN on every news stations there is...walking into my office today to see signs already posted before 8am informing the public of office CLOSURE until CONGRESS restores funding...having to follow protocol and instructions to change my out of office reply and voicemail to a script...locking all drawers...cleaning the break room frig of items that could spoil within the next week's time...being given notice of what to do and not to do during FURLOUGH...possibility of employees signing up for UNEMPLOYMENT...yeh that feeling I didn't know until TODAY! You don't; until it close to home!

Sooo, the lesson here is to see the unknown...VOTING in the mid-term elections is just as important, (more important in some aspects) as in the Presidential elections....the reason for the government shutdown today is actually moreso because of those 535 persons we vote in every two years and not the ONE person voted upon every four years. The 'qualified people' on the HILL are still able, during this FURLOUGH, to be paid $200,000-300,000 PLUS salary per year (equivalent of $3,300 per WEEK, YES PER WEEK) as they have caused a SHUTDOWN without compromise...while we who are shut down DO NOT RECEIVDE PAY for this particular time out. I've heard and seen where some people have made ignorant statements such as "Government Shutdown? Who cares...we didn't have a government in existence anyway!" Well, just so you know there are honest, hard working, citizens out there like myself who are a part of the [federal] Government workforce who have been affected (for me starting at 11:45am today) and I am NOT one of the $200/300 thousand + salary employees. Please be respectful and sensitive to Americans' needs.

Can't count how many times I have been asked...When can you go back? How long will this last? The truth and answer is: WE DONT KNOW...WE WONT RETURN UNTIL A DECISION ON CAPITAL HILL IS MADE!

Now, consider the domino effect a Government Shutdown will cause....did you realize national parks are closed...museums are closed...flu shot clinics stop...housing authorities can't provide vouchers...no passports and visas will be processed...only certain inspectors are to continue working...only certain branches and lines of work are continuing work?! Yes, the common, every day citizen has no idea what types of people, jobs, etc. will be effected. Its the little things you overlook that will be even be under this SHUTDOWN.

NOW...why SHUTDOWN...please take time to educate yourselves on the Obamacare/Affordable Health Care Act! Its far too much to explain here but its the main cause for the current situation.

Ok, I think that's enough! Nevertheless, I am still blessed and thanking GOD for HIS BLESSINGS!

SN: Thanks to those family and friends who have called, texted, etc. to check in on me. Much love and its appreciated!

NOTE: Please do not use this post as an outright negatively ranting comment section...but feel free to like or comment otherwise.

I'm soul-searching, but concluding Jesus was black (or his color don't matter), and these are racists bigots that call themselves Christians. Everyday, my dislike for clear folks grows more and more but I try to remember the "good" ones. I'm sure this is better off as a different topic.

Yes! 

They're so far from being "Christ-like" they'd have to look up their ass to find it. And I still don't like them Haoles, even the so-called good ones. They're all guilty til proven innocent as far as I'm concerned.

They'd rather see this country go to hell than look in the mirror to see the cause of it.

I purchase 25 cans of milk yesterday to pass out . Babies are out of the formula they get on the first . I saw a lady in krogers begging the manager for a few cans until her wic office open . My money is tight , but i could not stand in line and see her cry like that . I gave the manager money to purchase for her on the spot . How can people continue to support any republican ? People are going to start robbing stores for milk . SMH
