Henry Vilas wrote:First you say "public trough" which means to me, government employment. Now you say politics. You are moving the goal post.
So how many years have you and your spouse received paychecks from any level of government?
7-1/2 years for me. (Navy)
40 or so for my wife (Schoolteacher). But you will have to take that up with her. We seldom see eye to eye on politics.
So how about you, Henry? Since you asked and I answered, turnabout seems fair play. How many years have you and your wife been snorfling at the public trough? In your sense of receiving govt paychecks.
BTW: I've been a whore for much of my professional life, selling myself to the highest bidder as an employee, salesman and consultant. Willing to go anywhere/do anything legal if there is enough money or interest involved. Willing to consider something illegal for substantially more. Nobody has ever met my price on the latter, though.
Never felt any shame about it. We are all whores, Henry. Just in different ways.
