Welcome Back Federal Workers! Government Back Open!!

OCT 17, 2013 – As I was walking my dog this morning on the federal park land of the C&O Canal Towpath, me and several neighbors spotted a US Park Service truck pull up ad 2 feral Park Service workers got out. We welcomed them back, and they responded they had a lot of backed-up work they had to do. We were very welcome to see our vital government workers, in this case assuring we have safe outdoors to take walks and enjoy nature, back at work providing us the many needed services we rely on everyday. The old saying goes, "You don't know what you've got till it's gone" applies. The Teabaggers, by shutting down the government, made us appreciate the myriad of governmental services all of us Americans have created with our government that sustains a comfortable level of lifestyle. From an elderly retiree getting their social security check, the soldier receiving their pay, to young kids getting help with Headstart, our governmental services are vital and important. JTMP strongly urges our supporters to watch out for conservatives and conservative organizations. They are coming after our Social Security, Medicare and al the other governmental institutions built by progressives over the years. Make sure you vote every time even in primaries, and pay attention to local elections as well as federal elections. Make sure you tell your government workers and your government representatives: Welcome back! Thank you for your services, and please do all you can to protect and secure entitlement programs. Bolster them up, inject new funding, do means testing; do whatever it takes to SAVE our entitlement programs, not get rid of them like certain conservative organizations propose.  (photo credit: Chris Gray-Garcia/US Army Corps Engineers/CC)
