When you fleece the taxpayers
to pay for make work jobs that nobody wants
then you cannot claim to be independent or "self-reliant."
You are really nothing more than a welfare recipient playing "make believe corporate professional worker."
But don't let reality get in the way of you becoming the best taxpayer paid social worker professor non-profit administrator director you can possibly be.
I often wonder if the concept of the free market = reality is lost on most people.
