    Oh please just by your comment we can see you’re a Democrat and Obama supporter. The Union supported Obama, the people that I know that belongs to the union on Fort Hood are diehard democrats. So please stop drinking the Kool-Aid.

    The laugh is on you. The overwhelming percentage of Defense Department civilian employees are Republican and vote Republican. That they are union does not automatically make them Democratic Party members because a lot of times they had to join a union as part of getting the job. They did not vote for President Obama you can be sure of that so they deserve what they are getting because the Republican congressman in the house are the ones responsible for this not President Obama. In your eagerness to make fun of the federal employees you missed the rich irony that so many Republicans with Denver run to the Union they probably hate for help. I wonder if any of them realize that is what a union is 4, to stand up to an employer when an individual alone has no chance one on one. From any of them this is the first time they are actually going to their union and using its services. Maybe this will wake them up. Maybe they'll realize all the garbage Fox News keeps telling everyone is about them and their union the one organization that if kept strong can help them again power. I won't hold my breath though.

    The alternative is to cut TDA positions and jobs, and send employees to the unemployment line.

    My advice is to shut up, go back to work, and be thankful you have a job, and endure the furloughs. Or you can join the military and then be helpless as Congress withholds your pay as they pass budgets.
