    Any reason to take even more days off.

    Why does it seem like the only people who can repeatedly screw over their employer (by not working) are people who work for the taxpayers?

    Like all those guys in uniform who make up half of Federal employees?

    But there are some overpaid slackers in Federal employ, and it is harder to fire them because the Federal government is kept to a much higher standard of “fairness” than most private employers. Still, there are plenty of slackers in private enterprises too, and the larger and older the organization, the more potential for it. When you employ ten people and you’ve been in business for five years it is easier to know what they are doing than when you employ a thousand in a complex organization and you’ve been in business for fifty years.

    Then again, Conservatives should be happy about all this. Since they think all government is evil, anything that makes it less efficient, and less able to actually accomplish anything is all to the good as far as they are concerned. At least, that’s their rhetoric, and that’s the way they conduct their politics.

    When something doesn’t work well in government, their usual answer is to give up and quit, rather than fix the problem.

    They make fun of the “Yes We Can” spirit, their motto being always “No We Can’t.”

    Snow is a good thing in Washington. Anything to get Congress and Obama to stop!

    As a Buffalo native, I can see why Toles is impatient with this! As someone who grew up in the sunny South, I get it. They don’t have the equipment, they don’t have skills in driving there, and they don’t have enough snowfall to justify acquiring either.

    Actually, you are correct! Warmer air carries more moisture. This means that there will be less snow in total, but when it snows, it is likely to be heavier snowfalls. Colder air doesn’t carry much moisture. (Ask a Minnesotan: it doesn’t snow that much — it just doesn’t melt!)
    Increased energy in the atmosphere also means more chaotic weather patterns.
    So, yes, it IS global warming! BWAH-HA-HA!!!

    The wingnuts are all alike. Thus the problem.

    Because the Republicans filibuster even minor bills into oblivion?

    The total snowfall today in the DC-Baltimore area: 0.2 inches- not 2 inches- 0.2 inches. Hardly the sign of a new ice age.
