"Think of “public service” for what it really is,

"... a secondary form of welfare, in which “workers” pretend to work and the government pretends to “pay” them
— just like in the old Soviet Union! I mean, if it weren’t for government jobs, all of these “non-essential” personnel would be lounging around on their porches, drinking beer and firing unregulated handguns into the air or at each other — or, even worse, at us — unable to deal with the vicissitudes of life and therefore deserving of our public charity. Without public service, politicians such as Ted Kennedy and Chris Dodd would have been just another couple of Irish barroom horndogs; Governor Moonbeam, Jerry Brown, another Buddhist moonbat; and Robert Byrd a humble white-sheeted follower of Nathan Bedford Forrest. Public service gave these men jobs — real jobs — and meaning to their lives. And you malevolent capitalists want to take it all away." -- Gone, Wisconsin - National Review Online

Your Say

Why? Because Obama was busy coaching basketball this weekend for his daughter's team, even though his daughter was skiing in Vail with mom and her mom's closest 12 friends and dining on short ribs. Thats why.
