Congressional staffers walked out on their jobs to protest both the Michael Brown and Eric Garner grand jury decisions, standing side-by-side with their hands raised in the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” gesture.
And we wonder why nothing ever gets done in Washington. The sad part is, these folks will still have jobs, whereas if the average Joe pulled a stunt like this, he’d be tossed out on the curb.
From Weasel Zippers:
Are these people aware of how ridiculous they look? According to the mountain of evidence obtained and released to the public, it’s quite clear Michael Brown never had his hands up, so why do folks insist on making themselves look foolish by raising their hands?
It defies logic.
Secondly, these guys and gals work for members of Congress, which means taxpayer money given in the form of an allowance to Congressmen and Senators, pays their salary. In other words, these people are protesting while they should be working, and the jobs they should be working are being paid for by the citizens of America.
If you’re going to protest, do it on your own time, not during working hours when other Americans–most of which don’t get paid quite as handsomely–are grinding away to make money to pay your salary.
A black lady with some real sense has a message for them:
