CAD703X: I like where you're going here.
I agree with everything you posted.
frick Faceflop. frick statists and their spying lying cheating stealing government lackeys.
frick highway robbery whether it's in the form of a checkpoint (Guilty until proven innocent -- you have to prove you're NOT DRUNK -- BTDT) or a corporate owned revenue sharing camera.
What's interesting, is that those in private industry have seen massive layoffs since 2008, pay cuts, and those that are left are often doing the jobs that were once done by 2, 3, or sometimes 4 people (yours truly).
But in government, they keep getting raises and they get pensions. Pensions that are worth far more than they earned in their careers, and far more than they ever contributed in value. That we pay for through ever-increasing taxes (sales, property, motor vehicle, health care whatever).
And, when they do cut something or lay somebody off, it's not the 6 figure administrators or useless sensitivity programs, it's the little guys who make $10/hour or programs in public schools that actually benefit kids like art or music.
Their comeuppance is coming and it will be the people who voted them in, the free lunch crowd, the takers, the Free shite Army, that does it when they stop getting their free shite. IE when the overbearing overtaking police state goes broke.
When it does, you had better be able to provide for yourself, have a good 'tribe' of people you can rely upon, be situated far from large concentrations of the FSA, and you'd better be able to provide for the defense of yourself and your family.
When their free shite stops coming (EBT), they will assume the role of locusts and strip everything of value to nothing within walking distance of their current locations.
You'd better believe it. We can refuse to deal with reality, but not the consequences of same.
I think you've got the big picture, or are starting to get it CAD703X.
The more people that wake up the better.
frick the takers. Be a maker.
Aesop's fable about the ant and the grasshopper is quite instructive.
Be an ant. The grasshoppers will not survive the winter if they can't steal what they need.
Right now they're stealing, but with the help of a government gun to each and every maker's head. It's called taxes. Products of our labor taken before we ever receive the remainder.
Back in olden times they called people like us slaves, serfs, or peasants.
