I don’t provide a platform for the totally out of touch with reality to spew their hate, but occasionally they make a great story!
In response to yesterday’s City Council story, a comment was made that I redacted most of. The name is fake, she used a VPN making it appear she was in Switzerland:
Sometimes I feel like playing with people who have nothing better to do than write diatribes, sometimes I just delete them. I’m not wasting my time fact checking people who comment when truth doesn’t matter. It’s quite easy to tell people searching for answers from those who believe whatever media tells them.
The same person was back last night with another comment. Note how “Switzerland” went right over her head. This is part of the comment:
The writer is a former government employee. Her comment proves government doesn’t think the same way the rest of us do.
Private businesses can not survive being closed for months. Many can not afford to pay employees when no money is coming in.
It’s in the budget
If it’s in the budget magic money will fund it.
(That comment proves why most of her comments end up in the trash!)
I don’t hate government employees. I do despise how they are treated differently simply because government can steal more money from everybody else to create employee utopia.
Nobody is sitting around waiting for unemployment checks at the City of Bloomington. Nobody working for the City of Bloomington is at risk of losing their business they have spent a lifetime building. Nobody working at the City of Bloomington is wondering how they are going to feed their families.
Paying the mortgage because it’s “in the budget” doesn’t happen without a paycheck.
Government employees have no idea what those on the outside are facing.
I predict “Jenna” will post another response. Maybe I will post it, maybe it will end up in the trash. Depends on how I feel at the time, after all it’s my website.
