A ludicrous effort by Trump to minimize the damge of his idiootic partial shutdown has been his sporadic effoorts to deal with consequences of his worthless shutdown. So we have rich cronies of his who have found themselves incnvenienced for hunting in US natural preserves. Trump has ordered that the fedreal employees who oversee this particular matter must show up for work to make sure that this handful of wealthy Trump cronies can hunt in US natural preserves, without pay. These federal employees must be slaves to these spoiled brat pals of Trump.
We must recognize what is going on here, although nobody prior to me now has called it for what it is, this is slavery. Trump has been ordering all sorts of fed employees to show up and perform thier duties without pay as an accumulating pile of interests get to him complaining about not getting their government services.
Of course slavery leads to shirking, unless Massa wields a whip, which I think is not seriously there, so we have already seen lines at LaGuardia airport as TAS employees call in "sick." Everyday this condition of slavery persists, the calling in sick of the slaves will increase.
We adopteed an amendment 154 years ago that aboilished alavery in the United States of America. It is about time this amendment was enforced.
