Think about this. You walk into work and tell your boss, "I'm not going to do my work because the guy in the next cube over is an idiot."

How would your employer respond? Probably would sit you down for a disciplinary meeting at the least, right?

So the next day, you persist and tell your boss, "Not only am I not going to do my job, I'm going to sit behind the idiot in the cube next to me and fuck with him so he can't do his job either."

Then what happens to you? Possibly another write-up depending on your employer's code of conduct on the matter, but that's not likely.

After that what would happen if you started going to work and stealing your co-workers' materials? What if you started taking out ads in local media to run your employer's name into the ground?

If you or I undermined our co-worker(s), sabotaged everything they were trying to do and ground the whole of our employer's business to a halt, we''d be on our asses. (And rightfully so.) No benefits. No severance. No pay. Nothing.

You'd be fired.

So why are our senators/congresspeople enjoying every comfort imaginable while being petty little bitches trying to sabotage the country because of their personal feelings about the President?
