YGL-LA: Furlough Friday Fun? When life gives you lemons...

Personally, I'm stunned that Congress allowed sequestration and all it's consequences to occur in these great United States Of America.

YGL-LA: Furlough Days...Make It Count

Just a few days ago Sequestration went into effect, which will most likely result in unpaid days off (furloughs) for Government workers. Now that the shock of Congress' failures is subsiding, I started wondering what I would do on this day. Would I treat it like any other day off and enjoy some much needed R&R? Or do some community service? Learn a new language? Write my Congressman? Call my mom? Browse Govloop? Update my resume? Get another job? Throw a party? While there is still some…See More

I work for the government because:

fallen, there were ten thousand behind us who would have done our work just as well, who would have followed the contest to the end, and never surrendered the Union." Ulysses S. Grant
