13. I am so sick of Conservatives acting like they're the only people who work.

 

In my personal experience, there are PLENTY of lazy Conservatives. Plenty of unemployed Conservatives, too. Plenty of Conservatives who take welfare as well. But they *all* have reasons why it's ok in their case.

And if we count government salaries, Jesus-- it's practically all of them. Whenever someone starts talking about cutting government, I *know* they have a government job. I have yet to find an exception in my personal life.

I'm the only person in my extended family who works in the free market-- and the only one who doesn't praise it as a self-balancing wonder machine. I asked some of my relatives last Thanksgiving why they'd never bothered to sign up for those wonderful free market opportunities, and they just stared at me blankly. It's always *other people* who are the problem.
