|The right's energizer bunny |
keeps going and going and going...
Bob also explains that all these people who hate government employees--are, in fact...wait for it....government employees themselves! But that's an inconvenient irony and the right isn't terribly big on the whole irony thing.
|Gee, thanks evil Government entity!|
Note: My better half tells me not to engage in this kind of "back and forth" but I can't help it. I feel like at some point, it needs to be done. At some point, we're going to have to engage in a conversation with the right, because that's how conflict is ultimately resolved. "Enjoy"?
Original comment by Groobiecat in response to Bob Cesca's post:
My Bad. A commenter replied, more or less correctly, that the phone and rail systems actually were mainly the result of private sector ingenuity. I have to agree, although the government provided assistance in both cases. I think I need to stick to the basics: Highways, Research and the Interwebs, Mail, Health, including inoculation against many kinds of diseases, National Parks, Flu Shots, Jobs, Gas (oil drilling tax incentives!).
*Yes, jobs! I keep forgetting that the government actually does create jobs!
