Mike: Then I read this, the greatest insult to all of our collective integrity, and to all of our individual intelligence. I will tell you, it’s the most outrageous thing that I have heard since the massive government expansion began under President Bush in September of 2001. Folks, this is an outrage of the highest proportion. If any of us buy into this — let me rephrase that. If any of us fail to lift our voices in opposition against this, then we will not lift our voices in opposition against anything. That is the statement that intelligence workers, those that work for the NSA, if they don’t get paid directly, some of them may commit actual treason. They may actually go work for the other side.

Well, where I come from, patriots don’t ask for the paycheck first and do the patriotism later. You may want to look up a little poem or a short story written by one Thomas Paine in December of 1776. It’s called “The Crisis.” Read through “The Crisis” and tell me about how your patriots are now said to be thinking about jumping to the other side. This is beyond insulting.

Staff could report for duty only if their job “is necessary to protect against imminent threat to life or property. And so our applying that standard is what resulted across the board in furloughing of roughly 70 percent,” Mr. Clapper said.
