Lazy and Bored Government Employees

When you think about it…being bored isn’t so bad.

It means you don’t have to worry about gettin’ fired, beat up, yelled at, laid off, shot at or making pay-roll.

On the other hand, it also usually means you have to sit around in the company of a bunch of nameless, faceless, shiftless, sycophantic, self-aggrandizing, back-side-kissin’ dorks. After you’ve been around guys like that for a while they will bore you beyond your wildest dreams.

I’m sure that long exposure to these sort of people is a primary cause of postal-shooting sprees. That and psychotropic medications. The conventional wisdom was once that such shooters were family sorts who also believed both the Second Amendment and the Bible should be taken literally. Guys who believed (horrors!) babies should be born and loved instead of sliced and diced while in the womb.

You know, Tea Party types.

Wait a minute!  I got this all mixed up. Now I remember…I got bored yesterday and without thinking I watched big Media TV for about five minutes.  And that’s where I got those ideas about Tea Partiers. Weird.

It’s all coming back to me now. Tea Party guys are never the shooters. Now I recall. The shooters are always on psychotropic medications …and registered Democrats.

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.

    Time for taxpayers to begin their fighting back, why pay people to do nothing, even in our WH, they are being paid to rob us, time to wake up people… Even with welfare, these people can be doing community work to help the disabled or elderly who can not afford to pay for the help,,,

    So called liberals are actually uptight and stupid!

    Liberals idolize Karl Marx because he did not understand human nature (Karl Marx was uptight and stupid).

    Adam Smith understood human nature and wrote about it in his book “The Wealth of Nations”. Humans require motivation to do anything. The best motives are self-satisfaction, making & loving babies, loving their families, and themselves; and providing benefits, health, supplies, safety, pleasures, etc. to their families and themselves. Human motivation is why individual rights, justice, truth, capitalism and a Republic form of government made the American people so prosperous, innovative, and productive.

    You can always spot a liberal because you immediately notice their stupidity, lack of self-respect, lack of respect for others, their larcenous attitude (they would steal anything from anyone), and their worship of Karl Marx-socialism-communism-Fascism, tyranny, repression, bullying, etc!

    My father worked at the SSA for over 30 years. They had a set amount of work to do each week and he would get it done by Tuesday at the latest. He was told to stop helping others do their work or be fired. So he ended up getting a lot of reading done the rest of the week. He hated it, but he had so much time in that he couldn’t see starting over in another job.

    You wouldn’t believe some of the ridiculous classes and seminars he took at work just to have something to do other than sit in his cubicle and read. The most useful one was sign language, but he never actually used it at work.
