Face it, it was a bad attempt at victim-blaming to get some of the dirt off Trump, whom you believe to be acting prudently by putting all the folks out of work.
Your personal jabs aside, this is a discussion of furloughs, not terminations. I do not believe that anyone is going to be terminated here. I'm trying to keep the discussion to the topic at hand.
I know that you are only thinking on a single plane, so let me burst that limitation for you.
Two things can be true at once:
1) A prudent federal employee ought to prepare for the possibility of a furlough.
2) It can be very unfortunate that federal employees have to go through a furlough.
You're just finding ways to downplay the negatives of the shutdown. Tell you what, why don't you go door to door and tell all the struggling furloughed employees that they should have been more prepared. Perhaps ATCSunDevil would appreciate hearing your take on his $0 paycheck this week.
