    We are being forced to work today and Monday. We don’t get paid holidays off, and now I guess we are not even getting unpaid holidays off. Part of working in the new economy. Thirty plus hours per week with NO benefits. But working us today is just mean and petty. We take off on Fridays or Mondays all the time for holidays, but this year we get NO days off for Christmas? Such christians, too.

    Any way… yeah, it feels like Christmas in Prison for me.

      Working in a small town that had only a couple of years before finally took down their “sun down” sign at the edge of town.

      I knew the answer but asked if we got Martin Luther King’s birthday off?

      The Reply was “Shoot we don’t give ya Christmas off and he was White!”

    I read Oweno.com recently. Good God.

    An extremely simple-minded site for simple-minded people who know absolutely nothing about the federal budget, and don’t really want to know.

    The Peter G. Peterson Foundation conveniently includes Social Security in the pie chart without explaining that it is not part of the discretionary spending. They also gloss over the real and obvious effect that the gratiuitous tax cuts for millions and billionaires have had on the overall budget deficit.

    An objective perspective notes all the facts. It doesn’t moronically pretend, like Jidette and his organization very obviously do, that all facts are equal, and the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

    And the man is also very obviously not qualified to be dogcatcher, let alone president.

    And for the record: I don’t support banning anyone unless they seriously misbehave. That includes po’ little Freebird.

    P.S. Merry Christmas, to those people who matter, I guess.
