    I realize you are making a reference to Animal Farm but your posting could also be considered as a rude description of a particular profession. I know it didn't go over to well when you tried it on the retired LEO thread. Why risk offending people that may otherwise have some things in common with you?

    If the PEOPLE can't carry neither can the low life politicians!

    THEY work for US not themselves!

    The Sargent at Arms should be fired!

    The 4 politicians should hang their heads in shame when they are in public!

    Yes, reference to Animal House. Nothing more, nothing less.

    LOL, anyone who thinks politicians work for us certainly hasn't been paying attention for the last couple decades.

    Were they working for us when they ran the national debt to $14 Trillion and virtually guaranteed that your grandkids' standard of living will be worse than ours?

    Were they working for us when they passed the Patriot Act which allows them to enter your home, search it, take your computer, and forbid you from telling your own mother about it without the risk of going to prison?

    Were they working for us when they dragged us into three wars in the Middle East with no apparent plan to win, or to get out, and wasted the lives of 5000+ of our young people and maimed countless others?

    Were they working for us when they socialized General Motors and sanctioned the ouright screwing of thousands of GM bondholders while paying millions of dollars of bonuses to executives, at least one of whom was hired, paid off millions, and allowed to retire without ever having lived within 1000 miles of GM headquarters?

    Were they working for us when they seized control of US Healthcare -- 17% of the US economy -- against popular opinion and without one single human ever reading the entire bill with which they did it -- virtually guaranteeing that quality of care will go down and costs will escalate?

    Is anyone really delusional enough to think that these people work for us?

    Wolfram ... don't worry!

    You cannot offend a California Democratic Legislator! They are so full of themselves that they never notice criticism.

    Dems work for one thing and one thing only... doing whatever it takes to stay in office.

    Frankly, I believe the welfare and entitlement system they champion is nothing more than modernized, legal slavery.

    We have millions on welfare, many of whom remain on welfare most of their lives, and they even have second and third generation offspring on welfare. Slaves? How? Well, a slave produces a useful service for his or her master. In the olden days this was usually field work. Today these welfare slaves still produce a service useful to their liberal masters. They produce votes.

    Just watch each election as Massah Liberal scares the weelfare slaves with tales about how the evil Republicans are going to starve them to death. Reminds me of the plantation owners telling their slaves similar things that the evil Yankees were going to do to them.

    I believe that in 50 years or more from now, if our country survives, or 100 years or more after we've seen a new country replace it, teachers will be pointing to the socialist welfare system as being not only economically unsustainable, but also degrading of humans because it was legalized slavery.
