Democrats are becoming increasingly angered by the Trump administration’s decision to call back furloughed federal workers, without pay, while the shutdown persists.
More and more workers at agencies with funding lapses are being told to report back to work, and in many cases the employees won’t be paid until after the shutdown ends. Democrats worry that furloughed workers are being recalled on a piecemeal basis in order to further President Trump’s political goals.
Why the hell aren’t the American people screaming against Spanky McOrangehair and telling him to stop the shit already. This isn’t only shameful. It’s this:
An indentured servant or indentured laborer is an employee (indenturee) within a system of unfree labor who is bound by a signed or forced contract (indenture) to work for a particular employer for a fixed time. The contract often lets the employer sell the labor of an indenturee to a third party. Indenturees usually enter into an indenture for a specific payment or other benefit, or to meet a legal obligation, such as debt bondage.
Government workers can’t strike. They can’t refuse to come to work. They have no rights. This is un-American. And we’re letting Putin’s buttboy oppress the people of the United States while he sells us out to the Kremlin.
It won’t be enough to impeach him. He needs to be in jail for treason.
Videos of Kentucky high school students standing in front of Native American marchers and seemingly mocking one Native American drummer during the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington yesterday have gone viral.
Multiple videos posted on social media show Covington Catholic students standing in front of a group of marchers, yelling and jumping as marchers begin to play music. One person in a “Make America Great Again” hat stands within inches of the face of a marcher who is drumming, staring and smiling at him for the entirety of the video.
And then our Democratic political weasels, who are supposed to be our only options against Mitch McConnell and his corrupt band of oligarchical oppressors, pull this:
God dammit, Allison. The reason Mitch McConnell kicked your ass in his last election was because you wouldn’t stand up and call an asshole an asshole. Don’t peddle this “I refuse to shame and solely blame these children” crap. Unload on them like the low lives they are.
Fuck! They go to a religious school and they pull this shit. Kick their asses. Their parents aren’t going to do damn thing, because their parents made them what they are today. Bigoted, petty. low-rent asswhipes who worship the Cheeto coated babyman more than they believe in a just and loving Christ.
“Part of my frustration is that people think it is kind of a joke,” said state Sen. Julie Raque Adams, a Jefferson County Republican who is co-sponsoring the bill with Republican Majority Floor Leader Damon Thayer.
“We need to find out who these people are and keep an eye on them,” she said.

Oprah Winfrey was second, with Clinton and Melania Trump next.
