Vampires suck the life out of their victims

but at least they offer eternal life unlike the suckoffs who keep the governments pumps running. Bleed them till it hurts.

As far as the "I need the paycheck" argument; It's no different than a prostitute who sells her soul for a paycheck and then watches while her john robs, abuses and murders some of her clients.

Your recent post show you to be a real piece of work. I'll look forward to driving the stake, myself.

"A vote for the lesser of two evils is a vote to keep things the same", Buckminster Fuller..
A choice for liberty is always a choice for liberty.

Not to be a hater

but it is wack that so many people are employees of the state or the federal state.

A friend of mine is an attorney with the state and will have a vested pension in a year and a half from now (when only at age 37 or so)--after not even working 10 years for the government. Received offers of employment with the FBI (which I'm at least glad to report this person turned down). But that is simply unfair, I think, since we taxpayers cover it.

A family member of mine works for the military industrial complex and lives higher on the hog than anybody else I know personally--making weapons--and gets all expenses utterly covered at expensive hotels, restaurants, etc. Just an egg head with a PhD, goofy guy who can't even focus long enough to talk about *real* politics and conditions in this country.

It is f*cking BS that our corporate class pulled the rug out from under our economy and manufacturing sector over the years... to the point where now the big bucks are in the government or government support sectors--which the coporate class owns, of course.

So the best and the brightest are in essence bribed (b/c far less opportunity will exist elsewhere / private sector, which may ultimately be the condition of things) to be stooges for the elite and will end up contributing to the police state infrastructure, endless wars, etc. all to live large and put their fat, dopey children through college.

And what I'll refer to as "light domestic economic espionage" occurs all the time, with CIA assets infiltrating tech start-ups, etc. to subvert all for government use.... or to sabotage stuff if the inventor is a maverick personality (just like CIA embedding in local government, too, these days... hah! And we pay for it all with our taxes...). Or government front "vulture" capital investors derail or takeover anything "outside of the box".

Sucks. We've been so utterly *had*....

Sorry to be a downer. But if you are thinking about government work.... please consider infiltrating it for your fellow liberty folk! PLEASE!

What would the Founders do?

You couldn't pay me enough

You couldn't pay me enough for me to want to be a useless taxfeeder.

Why not do something with your life instead of just leeching off others and forcing them to pay your salary under threat of violence.

Produce something of value(or work for someone that does) that others will voluntarily pay for.

But I guess if easy money and power is all your interested in then I'm sure you'll fit right in with all the other useless Gov't workers.

Today in many areas, it's the only option

Government is competing with small business.. here in my area, we have a recreation center that started with contributions, couldn't sustain, the city took it over, and to compete, put two health clubs out of business.. still couldn't sustain, so it's all part time work and the hours are lousy, so chances are, it will fail leaving the area with no health clubs.

A great paying job around here is roughly 25K.. our city manager, who puts businesses out of business makes $136K.

We don't have many government jobs.. they last about two years and the government moves the employees, trasnsfers them spomewhere else.

So.. I would say, YES, get that job, and do your best to enjoy your life. It beats depending on soup kitchens and homeless shelters.

Exactly, a rational thinker

Exactly, a rational thinker here. Thats what it comes down to, being unemployed and doing nothing or have some sort of income, no matter what it would be.

May I suggest bank robbery?

Hey, if you figure your only way to get some money is to join a gang that steals it from your countrymen, why don't you man up and do your own thieving? Cut out the middleman, and keep ALL your "earnings," instead of some minor percentage?

It gets better: you can choose your victims, and can leave alone the honest folk who use peaceful and honest trade to earn a place in honest and civilized society. Confine your robbery to those who themselves use force and fraud to enrich themselves: Rob banks. Rob government offices that hold cash. Be Ragnar Danneskjöld.

You have an objection to this? Tell me, then, is it a moral objection, or simply the fact that such work is dangerous? Are you a moral moron who believes thieving is okay when "government" does it? Or are you a coward?

Ask Sam Adams.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams

Well...

First of all, your parents do not have to pay for your education. I paid for the vast majority of my education in scholarships. There are plenty of scholarships based on merit or essays.

Next, what do you love to do? Capitalize on it. Write articles and send them off for publication. Make something and sell it online. Learn a trade. There are so many options. I get that you are trying to be practical, but try going rogue. You can do whatever you want if you work really hard for it, and if you don't want to work for the government you do not have to. Create a job you love and work hard at it.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That'll teach you to keep your mouth shut. Hemingway

What is the job?

Is it local, state..?

If it entails auditing the fed, I'm all for it ;-)

So, what is the job?

I don't know. Maybe some type

I don't know. Maybe some type of desk job for the dept. of army or something.

well in actuallity. won't we

well in actuallity. won't we all have government jobs eventually, like Greece? Either that or we all will be on foodstamps. That's what happens in a socialist country.

Its dirtt money...you produce

Its dirtt money...you produce nothing. You take extortion money to pay your salary when working for the government...other people's sweat and blood pay for your 'job security'. I know...used to subcontract to the army. Its easy to justify as thinking you are getting back tax money you have paid out...but in reality you are only taking the fruit of other people's labor, or in the case of borrowed money....thats money taken from children not yet in the workforce. Printed money is taking value from every us citizen...any way you look at it, its dirty money. The one exception that makes it ok is if its a position in which you save the taxpayer more than you cost them...IE Thomas Massie.

If it dosen't cost you - go for it

Why burden your parents? Although that's good training for a government job.

Consider the military, Uncle Sam has a job to do you know and needs people just like you to help. Serving the peoples interests traveling the world all compliments of the Federal Reserve. Yup, that's the ticket alright.

Why settle for less than being a hero. Killing the bad guys before they kill you all over the world is fun. Unless you want to just be a leech and get something for nothing.

and then you die

Yep, just serve the beast

Great idea. Have you learned nothing during your time here? Just know that every day you sit at your desk, I'll be out here trying to eliminate your job.

Well I am working for a

Well I am working for a corporation now, and might be on the verge of losing my job. I don't have the capital or experience to start up my own business. The government would at least provide employment and income along with job experience. I know it was not my intent or dream to work for them, but I am beginning to see very little options left.

Go find another job

Find an AnCap and work for him/her. Find a family run business. Find someone who agrees with your views.

The govt just has major bureaucracy trying to inhibit domestic growth, no matter what you are told. Try running your own business and the govt will sniff your butt and make you miserable with permits, OSHA, the state, the county. Don't be one of those people.

Pay might be good going into another country or domestic, but morally inadequate.

Find a small sector of where you work, a small company, not a corporation, and cold call. Find a business that actually provides a product that people need here in the US. Produce something. The feeling pays dividends even if you make less money.

I may be a wage slave at the moment, but I'm happy.

I know this is an

I know this is an anti-government website, but I am only being practical here in finding a secure job.

Whoa, hold on there. Let's

Whoa, hold on there. Let's clear the air. This is not an anti government website, it is an anti corrupt government website. Big difference.

As for your financial future, do what you will. I personally think the best line of work is working for yourself. To each their own and good luck in your endeavors.

Thats a little difficult, and

Thats a little difficult, and you get no benefits or anything. The government and at least large companies supplies those. Got to be a little realistic. I don't know, maybe you guys are right afterall. Maybe I am being too practical.

People use to work for a pay check

Now they all want benefits and pensions and so on which are just socialism and welfare. You are afraid of making your own way so you want to find someone to take care of you the rest of your life.

If we keep going the way we are then you will have no benefits or pensions regardless of where you work. At least in the private sector you may still be of use after the fall. But then again one more person on the government tit should help speed the crash. Everything is a double edged sword and it ultimately is up to you to decide which edge you want to get cut with.

Well look how expensive

Well look how expensive healthcare is today. Hardly anyone can afford it outright without some type of benefits from their employer. A Paycheck today won't do it.

I don't have "health care"

I haven't had any form of healthcare in a good 28 years. And I never used it when I had it before then. I am married and raised my children without "healthcare" and we are all healthy. I can't remember all the things that we have taken care of at home from sickness to accidents involving high temperatures, bloody heads and things in between that most people would have run to their doctor for, yet we took care of them ourselves.

You seem to believe that good health comes from medication or that you cannot heal unless you see a doctor. Do you think you are going to die every time you get sick. The fact is that practically any illness you face in your life can heal without a doctors intervention. You are perfectly capable of taking care of yourself with diet and natural or homeopathic remedies and cleanliness.

Fear of death will keep you a slave for the rest of your life if you let it. Unfortunately that fear has enslave our whole society.
