    Sure, it's bullshit, but it works.  "If it weren't for the darn government, I could make as much as I want, and work whenever I felt like it."  The reality, of course, is you do what your boss says, and the government puts some restrictions on how badly he can screw you.  But Ross does a nice job of turning that on it's head.  

    Honestly, I wish the Democrats could figure this out, and use it for good instead of evil.
