    OT ~ Gov't Shutdown2

    For nearly 40 years I've served the public as a federal worker. The problem with the Gov't is not the workforce, it's the growing entitlements and useless wars that have bloated federal expenditures and are making this county but a shell of what it once was and what it could be. The federal workforce has dropped from 6.6 million in 1968 to 4.4 million in 2011 (per figures) and is in a continued decline. At the present time I am locked out the office building in which I work. Access to computers has been shut off. Should I try to enter the building to work, I would be arrested by the essential guards that are there protecting an empty building. No one is more frustrated about the shutdown than the worker themselves. I would be there if I could. The spillover of public frustration regarding the 'government' onto it's employees is difficult for those of us who go to work each day and strive to serve the public in the best way possible.
