I see that Big Guy’s on the road again today. He’s campaigning against his it-seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time sequester. On second thought, it looks like that 2 cent solution will grind the the transportation system (not to mention your vacation at national parks) to a halt, along with the rest of the economy; which is apparently chugging along just swell otherwise, thank you very much.
So, Big Guy wants you to call/write/email/text your Congressmen and Senators to badger them to do things Big Guy’s way. Which is to say, those of you lucky enough to still have a job will have to pay a little more of your fair share up front.
I guess everyone around here can expect a pay cut (well, not everyone). I should have known better than to ask Lady M about my pending 65% pay cut: all she did was complain about the fact that she hasn’t seen a paycheck “since what’s-his-name took office.” Great.

For stealing the election or something. Butt I guess we expected that people would feel, well, entitled to something, given the changes we were forced to implement this year:
