Government Shutdown? Are you kidding me!

You know what, this is not going to be an organized post because I just can’t stand the thought of the United States Government keeping employees from being paid while a law was passed to ensure “pertinent” government officials still get paid. I think this is outrageous! Why should employees of the federal government not get paid while politicians eat good and have all the extras? If your reading this and you’re an American, doesn’t this make you angry? If not, it SHOULD!

 First of all, what gives any politicians the right to get paid while other “non important” employees are going to wonder if they will receive a paycheck or not? These people have families and would like to eat and pay their bills! You, and I am speaking to all politicians, are NOT that important that you need your income. All politicians make more than any average employee just barely surviving. You should be the FIRST to relinquish your paycheck. That’s called decency and looking out for the very people whom you serve. We don’t serve you, you serve the people. Foreign concept to you I am sure!

Shame on you, all of you, in positions of authority. What has happened to America that we no longer take care of the poor? In this case I mean anyone that is considered middle class and lower. Was not the United States Government suppose to SERVE THE PEOPLE? The people do not serve the Government! Was not the Government instituted to protect, serve, and lead with fairness? This is why the United States has a Constitution; this is why the United States has a Declaration of Independence; this is why we have a Bill of Rights.

 As an American, I say to my President, “The American people expect you to defend us and to ensure our safety and wellbeing. If the people cannot afford to eat or pay their mortgages, then you should not eat or be able to pay your mortgage. You should be the first to forfeit your salary and any additional extras you receive as an elected official. SHAME on you for letting this happen!”

 As an American, I say to my Congress, “If you can’t pay your employees then you don’t deserve your pay either! You forget you serve the people, not the other way around. You have no right to use our tax dollars for your agenda’s. Make this right and make this right FAST. That’s what you have been PAID to do. SHAME on you too for letting this happen!”

As an American, I say to the people of the United States, “Its time to stop this. We need to start electing decent, HUMBLE, serving individuals who have the people’s best interest at heart; even at their own expense. Only we can stop this nonsense. If we do nothing, then they will continue to get away with using our tax dollars for their purposes. Which in this case is to pay their salaries while hardworking, decent Americans will not get paid. The time is now to stand up and make your voice heard!”

Bottom Line:

The people do not serve the Government; the Government serves the people. Make this right and make it right FAST and while you’re doing it do not cut salaries of hard-working employees, cut yours first. Stop playing the blame game and make this right…now!


I am the person who gives excellent advice. Yes, I am that good! I am a writer, a mom, a Nana (yes hard to believe I know!), a professional, educated, and has the ability to look at anything objectively. I write about everything and anything. I do this because there are many facets in my life. I am also a Coffee Lover and that alone makes me awesome. ~Me

  1. You’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg. That being said, I can’t disagree with any of your words. Our two party system has outlived its ability to serve the public interest.
