After taking a much needed break from Twitter and blogging I returned yesterday to find that things really haven’t changed that much.
Republicans seem to still have no spine and Democrats seem to still be lacking in the mental department.
As the Government continues its shutdown the citizenry is realizing in part that there are many government jobs that we can perhaps do without. There is talk now about a RIF (Reduction In Force) event that could end up removing some of those jobs permanently.
Per the American Thinker,
Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy? In only five more days of the already “longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more.
Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off? Well, in bureaucratese, a layoff is called a RIF – a Reduction in Force – and of course, it comes with a slew of civil service protections. But, if the guidelines are followed, bureaucrats can be laid off – as in no more job. It is all explained by Michael Roberts here (updated after the beginning of the partial shutdown).
Nanci Pelosi did not get smarter by wielding a gavel, Chuck Schumer (no citation needed) is still a schmuck, and the Left are still suckers for fake news.
So if you, like me, took a little break around the Holidays from all the idiocy of the media and the Liberals, fret not, you didn’t miss anything.
