Woo-hoo! Day off tomorrow!

Post by Abdul Alhazred » Tue Dec 04, 2018 1:45 pm

All federal employees (not counting LEOS and military) get a free day to mourn the passing of Bush I. :cowbell:

Meanwhile, I hope there are no layoffs ("shutdown") later this month over the damn wall. :|

Seems like the form of recognition from government workers should depend on the affiliation of the deceased president (and their party's view on the big state):

Democrat: a paid day off

Republican: an unpaid working day

You're confusing rhetoric with reality.

And which set of lawmakers came up with this hot mess to 'honor' Bush Teh Dead?
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.
