Tax addicts vs. the rest of us

Who is doing more? The person who runs for city council or the person who lives by ZAP and minds his own business?

This comes to mind because of two particular things, a "life of service" and the obsession of the mainstream media with government.

I get a "highlights" email from the CNJ- which is usually composed of 3 items each from the CNJ and PNT (sometimes they overlap), and I was just looking at the most recent issue (when I wrote this), and all 5 items (one was repeated for both papers) were about government or its employees. That is disturbing.

It shows how important some people believe these parasites to be.



  1. Back when I still watched some TV, I would watch the local news and keep track of how many stories they reported involved government. Usually it was around 90%.

    1. That's not surprising. It's been so long since I intentionally watched TV news, but I still get snippets of it when at my parents' house- it seems it's the same or worse now.

      Of course, government "work" is lucrative. Much moreso than most honest work (or writing). So I can see why some are attracted to it even if they don't completely believe in it.
