If Congress allows for the commissary and fireworks to be funded, but not Civil Service paychecks, I will riot. Civilian Pay trumps the commissary and fireworks IMO.

I completely disagree.

Civilian pay should be the first to go.

People in the military service come before them IMO, they are signed up and can not walk away.

Any hit should be to the folks with jobs who are allowed to walk away first.

Riot away, or better yet, do what you are supposed to do when you do not like your job, walk away.

NOTE: I am not maligning your job in any way, shape or form, and mean no disrespect at all, but the folks who can not walk away need to be the last to lose anything IMO.

I do however believe that every benefit going to a politician needs to go first, and that needs to be codified. That includes support for vacation etc. If you feel you deserve vacations or your family deserves them, do not take the damn job. The President needs a vacation, he has Camp David and the poor baby just has to deal with a luxury vacation most Americans could not dream of.
