    Don't like hiring Fed employees to ease unemployment?

    You can't handle the truth. Son, we live in a world that has walls. And those walls have to be guarded by men with programs. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Mr. "Free Market"? You've had your play unobstructed by guardians asleep at the wheel for eight years. E.I.G.H.T. YEARS! It isn't the guardianship, it's the LACK of a code of conduct that was at fault during the Bush administration to stop the folly of the Clinton administration.

    Feds have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for burgeoning government and you curse those who are left to clean up the mess left by laissez faire govt overseers, asleep at the wheel for a decade.

    You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that more govt, while tragic, will probably save the economy.

    And that Federal service, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, will save lives...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want govt to bail you out, to build a wall against your unfettered follies, excesses, and greed. You cry to put up that wall once every four years, if we can catch your attention. You NEED govt manning that wall, like a rebellious teenager secretly wishes for adult leadership, even, intervention.

    Govt, when done right, uses words like honor, code, loyalty, adherance to process, rules, law, respect for the referee and the ring, so that the economy is a place to compete, not a rulesless brawl that leaves no one standing...we use these govt processes as the backbone to a life spent defending something.

    You use 'em as a punchline--"Big govt".

    Well, I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very safeguards that govt provides, then questions the manner in which its provided!

    I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, stand a post, or get the hell out of the way. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!
