It might have been nice if the Media had paid attention to all those OTHER people, not employed by the Federal Government, who have been laid off simply because their jobs had been offshored, or simply eliminated because of trade practices enacted by previous administrations. They too have had hard times, had to hit food banks, had to find other, lower paying jobs simply to feed their families and provide a home, clothing and other necessities of life. They’ve ignored those folks…..why? Because it doesn’t meet the meme of the day?
And really, if 4 days into not having gotten a paycheck, you need to find a food bank or soup kitchen to feed yourself and your family, then there is something wrong with your lifestyle and/or financial practices.
While I do have sympathy for folks who are affected by the shutdown, I also feel that they are experiencing the insecurity that pretty much every worker has outside of Government employ. But the rest of those folks don’t matter, ’cause they aren’t part f the Federal Government, live in Flyover Country, or simply cannot be used by the Media to further the DNC agenda.
The Media is playing the DNC’s song, but I am not dancing. I doubt if many others are either.
