Just think of how much slack these 800,000 workers who are now temporarily out of work would be getting from those same republican politicians who made them shut down, if they were instead out of work because they all chose to go on a strike.

No but I was just thinking about Davos and Melisandre
they both were born into the absolute lowest level of their society. Davos was a kid from the slums who quite literally begged on the street for food as a child, and Mel was a slave, which is a rank so low they don’t even have it in Westeros.
Similarly, they were both taking care of themselves as best they could from an early age.
They both found a way out—Davos joined a ship’s crew, Melisandre was bound to the Temple of R’hllor.
They both made something of themselves—even before Stannis raised him to knighthood, Davos was a successful smuggler who could support his wife and kids better than he was supported as a kid. Mel became incredibly skilled at magic and prophecy. They both rose due to their own competence.
Finally, they both took on new names,symbolizing their change in circumstances. I would hazard a guess that Melony becoming Melisandre probably happened as she grew up and became influential in her religion, and Davos took the name Seaworth when he was knighted. We have no idea what Melisandre’s name means to her, but Davos’s shows how he got where he is—from sailing.
I like it how Roose is totes aware that Ramsay will be a terrible lord and probably even murder Roose”s children, but Roose doesn’t mind because child lords aren’t that good either. He just doesn’t give a shit what will happen when he dies.
