i fucking hate when i make more than some people make in a year every 17 workdays
donald trump PLEASE end this shutdown. if my friend who makes eleven dollars an hour doesnt get some new HD pics of pluto soon he will die. is this who we are
donald trump who is going to curate non binary vagina performance art if you dont end this shutdown??? (this is just their salaries btw, its not including the heinous amount of money they straight up give away)
imagine having over a million dollars and giving it to 150 people to run the national endowment for the arts for like two to three weeks. that is something that actually happens, apparently.
nasa employees are paid 140 million dollars every 17 workdays. so every four months we cut them a billion dollars.

the smithsonian alone, a single institution, pays its workers 22 million every 17 days. how is this real wtf im libertarian now (also theyre hiding giant bones)
how are you dropping 8 mil to run the national archives for 17 days??? that shit is already archived. its in a box. leave it there. thats all u have to do ben franklins not rolling up with fresh papers is he?
you should really show these numbers to as many people as possible because while they may not be interested in politics or debate theyll remember this when theyre looking at their three digit bank balance or cutting a rent check next month.
theyre actually acting like these people need to be fed with an impromptu soup kitchen:

guy that normally feeds the homeless giving a free meal to someone that makes 80k a year plus benefits because orange man bad #ChefsForFeds
ive seen guys pretending to throw thunderbolts in the woods that werent larping this hard:

i felt kind of stupid quote tweeting that last guy, thinking, it must just be that one guy, but people are actually donating and raising money for this
i just truly cannot believe this stuff is real and that people are really doing this.

if you missed 6000 of pay after 17 work days (low end of the spectrum) that means you make 350 dollars every time you go to work. if you work an eight hour day thats over 40 dollars an hour. people are actually donating money and volunteering to feed people with $40 an hour jobs.

to clarify, misspoke slightly in an above tweet. i think the average amount of missed pay is 5000 over 17 days so its really about 300 a day on average which if you work an 8 hour a day is about 37 dollars an hour. dont want someone to use that to invalidate everything else here
