They don’t make ‘em like this anymore…
…where are the PATRIOTS? More than 200 years after throwing off the tyranny of an oppressive, overreaching government, consider today’s headlines:
And on and on…
While private-sectors suckers like you put in a day’s work today (and yes—I’ll be working today, too!), “Patriot’s” Day gives government workers a day off of their demanding schedule: hire hookers, produce rap video for YouTube, call in ‘sick’ from the beach, pick up a few political contributions, etc, etc.
The idea of a government worker being a “public servant” is such a joke, almost nobody in the private sector ever uses the phrase anymore. It hasn’t always been that way. The most noble among us sought out the opportunity to serve during the American Revolution, then served again and again as our nation was born and the Constitution was crafted.
Today? Government hacks with better benefits and bigger paychecks than most of their neighbors take the day off to celebrate the fact that you’ll have to work until you’re 75 so they can still retire at 58.
Happy Patriot’s Day!
