    No.

    "Reductions in force furlough regulations and SES competitive furlough requirements are not applicable to emergency shutdown furloughs because the ultimate duration of an emergency shutdown furlough is unknown at the outset and is dependent entirely on congressional action, rather than agency action," OPM guidance reads. "The RIF furlough regulations and SES competitive furlough requirements, on the other hand, contemplate planned, foreseeable, money-saving furloughs that, at the outset, are planned to exceed 30 days."
    The righties are confusing Administrative Furloughs, which are used to RIF workers, and emergency furloughs. They are either too evil to note the difference or too dumb to understand it.

    BTW, Fetishistic Howling was my college band.

    Thanks, I figured that was the case, or else one of the neocon POTUSes surely would've tried it by now.
