TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! PREZ TRUMP MAGA RUMORS OF RIFS THREATEN SHUT DOWN KANSAS CITY FED WORKERS!!!



Kansas City social media discourse on the topic of the border wall government shut down has sparked quite few interesting local interactions and the latest talking point has local fed workers TERRIFIED.

Checkit:

KANSAS CITY FED WORKERS REACH OUT TO OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY HOPING TALK OF A SHUT DOWN RIF (REDUCTION IN FORCE) AS PART OF THE PREZ TRUMP TRAP FOR DEMOCRATS ISN'T TRUE!!!

The PREZ TRUMP TRAP Premise . . .

MAGA advocates and scared Fed workers believe that the Prez is once again playing 3d chess and this shut down will trigger a massive layoff RIF in order to really drain the swamp and trim the government payroll.

There's actually a precedent for this . . . Nobody believed Prez Reagan would fire 11K air traffic controllers during a strike but he did.



To be fair and provide the whole story . . . Cooler heads are trying to confront this fear and remind fed workers that RIF policy triggered by a 30 day furlough is different under this circumstance. The fine print: "We are currently in an emergency, or "shutdown furlough" - not a planned "save money" furlough where RIF procedures might normally apply."

However, in this political climate and amid a historic shut down. Anybody who claims to know the future has a good chance of being totally wrong.

What we do know for certain . . .

KANSAS CITY FED WORKERS ARE WORRIED ABOUT RIF THREATS AND THEIR POLITICAL RESOLVE SEEMS TO BE QUICKLY FADING!!!

Bright side . . . Both Republican & Democratic workers are in the same boat given that the government is the largest single employer in Kansas City with more than 50K workers not including vendors & contract employees.

And so the shut down continues with no end in sight as a growing number of furloughed fed employees clamor online.

Sorry about your politics but it's a dereliction of duty from both democrats and republicans if they can't pass a budget. This is why we need to start thinking about a 3rd party.

A massive RIF might save this country. If it's part of the plan then than just means that Trump is really looking out for the nation. They need to get rid of all the Obama employees.

Okay, so you know federal employees are really getting desperate if they're reading TKC. Bwahahahahahahahahaa.

Looking forward to seeing the Trump state of the union from his hotel lobby. That would be fitting and a good look at where things stand now.

MAGA is winning this fight. You don't see that from the MSM news because it threatens their power. At least TKC included a few real news links in this post.

Anonymous said...

^^^^ Are there polls out there that say Trump is winning this fight or is this just your battle against stuff like facts and truth?

Oberon said...

Just wait and see @2:45. The Democrubs are crumbling and they'll be begging for a deal soon enough. Especially when people get RIF notices. They are the ones who have backed themselves into a corner.

Historically, Republicans usually come out of a shut down much worse than the Democratic Party.

"I might lose my government job. I'd better reach out to a third-rate rumormonger blogger who never prints the straight truth and maybe a discussion about the shutdown that will eventually break down into rants about how much everybody hates black people will help."

Right.

^^ha! That's so funny because it's true. Just listen to these pants-shitters! Good one +100000!

Trump is a pathological liar that doesn't know what chess is.

In the meantime, instead of paying law enforcement officers and the Coast Guard, he's handing out IOUs. The FBI can't pay informants and arrests are not being made. Vehicles can't be repaired.

We look like Venezuela now thanks to Trump. He has made America a Great Shithole Banana Republic.

We can’t give in to Trump. If we do, he will continue to hold workers hostage every time in order to get his way. This is no way to run a government. The fed workers have families just like the rest of us.

Oberon, excellent response, well thought out, supported by facts and logic. Just kidding, simple question for you which you have no answer. The facts are this though, 34% give or take, approve of Trump. Yeah, the same ol dipshits who will eat a shit sandwich with a smile when he serves it to them.

Yes, going swimmingly for this a-hole in chief. Wake me up when this nightmare, dumpster fire administration ends.

Hope he does RIF huge numbers of Federal employees!

I want every Republican Candidate running for any office, no matter how local, to have to go into the 2020 Campaign Season this this Con Man and all his Failures hanging around their necks like a rotting sack of garlic.

The "45Cultists" can whistle in the dark as much as they want, but they're faced with a disaster that will make 1932 and 1960 look like walks in the Park!

In some areas t.he federal government needs to be downsized.

No work with back pay?

It sounds like the GOP have perfected the welfare state. Handouts for 800,000.

Congratulations! WINNING!!!

It needs to be downsized right at the top.

It's a lot of fun having a mob boss run the country.

Schumer voted with Hillary and Nancy for a wall in 2006

https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2017/apr/23/mick-mulvaney/fact-check-did-top-democrats-vote-border-wall-2006/

Since then, they lost the working class white vote with radical stupidity like AOC's pronouncement that "The world is ending in 12 years". She wants the end of fossil fuels in the next decade, which, if the idiot Progressives try to legislate it, will TANK and I mean fuckin TANK the economy if 12 fuckin minutes.

This shutdown, now over 30 days old, gives Trump the opportunity to trim some fat from out bloated, out of control, decidedly Left Wing Federal Government.

Let's hope he takes a machete to the fuckers.

@chuck: Nice try cuck, but you’re wrong. You’re willfully misstating what AOC about the world ending in 12 years. It’s what dim-witts like you do with no arguments do to counter what she really said. Either write what she really said, or stop lying. It just makes you look more like the sleepy misogynistic prick you really are. Stupid fucking shit-stain, now go plagiarize a response and get back to me.

What did the stupid cunt say 7:25? In your words. Waiting... Waiting.... Waiting....

7:25 is a stupid cunt, HA HA HA HA now that there is the funnest bitch slap I have seen all day and was to a very deserving person.

Anonymous said...

@8:13 She was referring to the 2018 UN Specail Report. She referred to it previously in the interview. It’s a reasonable take if you’re aware of the 12-year mark outlined in the 2018 UN “Special Report on Global warming of 1.5ÂșC,” released in October. It mentions the year 2030 — 12 years from now — as the point of no return, if we keep on our current path. It’s mentioned 35 times in the report in varying applications. How come you don’t know that?!? Too stupid, too lazy to do the work yourself like chuck the cuck, or too fucking stupid to understand it? Likely all of the above. Waiting...waiting...waiting....

7:25 Here is the quote, you ignorant slut.

“Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us, are looking up, and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change, and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?”

8:40 believes a UN report. BAhahahahahahahaha

Cripes you dipshits, no one thinks the world is going to end in 12 years but scientists and people who know what the fuck they're talking about (ie Not chuck the cuck) state we have 12 years before the damage is beyond reversible. There's plenty of money there to fix this stuff if directed appropriately and it will be good for the economy. Do you assholes know that we subsidize the oil and gas industry in the US? Fun fact. We should probably just start there.
