    that now working for a paycheck is mooching.  Oh I see, a govt paycheck, yes, the scumbags.

    One of Rachel's great moments last night, she played Cruz unskewing the WSJ poll, dismissing it because 20% of the people sampled were govt employees.  "Pshaw," say Ted, "20% of this country are not govt employees."

    Um yes, turns out that's true, what with teachers and firefighters and lots others.

    Which among other things really hits you between the eyes, how huge a blow the Rs successful attacks on govt jobs these last 6 years.

      in promoting their memes. And the dems ...... they promote those same memes. Cutting food stamps seems to me to be dastardly but a slight majority of folks want food stamps cut. A HUGE majority want SS medicare and medicaid left alone but the dems seem to ignore that bit.

      It seems that all my life we have been bombing someone, teaching them a lesson. Every day I understand more deeply how violent we are. Violent to others and violent to ourselves. - Robert Olmstead

      Tax men, food inspectors, air traffic controllers, FEMA, OSHA, FBI, CIA, the military, all their staff.

      It takes a lot of people to run a country. And a state, and a city. They all work for govt.

      And that doesn't include the contractors, who kinda sorta work for the govt.
