    Debt Collection Service "Jobs"

     

    That is basically the role of those who work hard sitting on their couch and vote for politicians who will impose taxes to pay all of W's and Reagan's unpaid bills and debts. These hard working Americans collect a percentage of the take, called entitlements, food stamps, etc, derived from the Treasury's collection efforts. Really its best to think of the Treasury as a business - as indeed the Exchequer which it is based on was in the beginning... It started out as England Inc, about 1000 years ago, with the King as the CEO. His nobles helped collect the taxes from the real income producers - the peasants utilizing the power of Royal Sheriffs if need be. The Nobles and Sheriffs would sit back and cream off a share of the tax/rent for themselves - much like the couch potatoes of today. They devised nice titles to call themselves, and fancy armor and privileges too...lol

    Nobody can be expected to work for free either, that would not be just...Collecting taxes and supporting a government, and voting to keep it strong is hard work. LOL

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
