Shouldn't you all be at work?

The more stuff I read, the more baffled I become. Let me see if I have this straight.
  1. Someone said that government is too big and wants to cut some of the non-essential jobs. 
  2. A hundred people or so who presumably have government jobs show up at his office to protest his statement.
  3. The protest occurred on a Friday morning when government offices are supposed to be doing the government's work.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that folks wanting to trim some fat off the budget without reducing services to taxpayers might want to start their search in the places that are running just fine with 100 employees not at work today. Even with a conservative estimate of $50,000/year spent on each employee (wages, benefits, etc.), that would be $5 million in savings a year.

I'm especially amused by the AFL-CIO chick who said "Just listen to what people are shouting: Good jobs! They want good jobs, better jobs. Not just jobs where the company only cares about profits and not the payroll of its employees." News flash you bimbo. The reason that companies care about profits is because they want to be able to stay in business...which will continue to provide jobs for people. You just want to get paid a ton of money without it being tied to any actual value that you provide.
