You, no doubt, already know about regular "ole" welfare. You know, the government program/s that used to go to help people down on their luck, but today goes to anybody who's too lazy to work? Yeah, that program.
Well, that's nothing compared to another, often unheard of government program, the "Ego Welfare Program."
You see, how it works is that for SOME people it isn't just enough to get money for nothing. No, their egos would be bruised. They would have to suffer the shame and scorn of knowing they were parasitical. So instead they join the Ego Welfare Program.
How the Ego Welfare Program works is you have to register VERY early in your life starting in kindergarten. Specifically you enroll in a public K-12 school district and take their "inflated ego" and "sense of entitlement program." It's a 13 year program that starts at age 5 and runs until you turn 18. In that program you learn how important, special and smart you are. How you are destined to do great things because, without doing anything, you're already great! Parental support is optimal for this program to work, but teachers are more than capable of instilling egos and entitlement mentalities into participants of this program on their own.
Next, the Ego Welfare Program requires you attend college and earn a liberal arts degree. Doesn't matter what, just get a liberal arts degree. Though not required, you are then strongly encouraged to get as many masters degrees in the liberal arts as possible. Social Work, Early Education Development, Educational Leadership and other outright worthless BS, the basic tenets of which could be summarized on one 8 x11.5 sheet of paper.
After completing this second stage of the program you are 100% guaranteed by the NEA and the US College Administrators Association to have an ego and entitlement mentality that can only be rivaled by others in this prestigious program. However, and here is where the genius of The Ego Welfare Program comes in, you are not employable even in the slightest, thereby making sure you have to go on SOME welfare program. However, since the regular ole welfare program is too shameful, you have the benefit of STILL COLLECTING WELFARE, STILL BEING A PARASITE, but WITHOUT ALL THAT NASTY SHAME!
You get a government job.
Yes, your job is completely unnecessary. Yes 1 private sector employee could probably do the job of 20 public sector employees. And yes, there functionally and economically is NO difference between you and the local EBT/welfare bum. But you get to claim you're "employed" *wink wink* thereby sparing your precious ego.
I will say it again for the cheap seats.
I have more respect for the welfare recipient, EBT recipient, government subsidized health insurance recipient who knowingly and admittedly steals from the taxpayer. S/he is at least being "honest."
It is the millions of spoiled brats that graduate with degrees that don't offer society anything and through the democrats/socialists in our government lobby for more government programs and government investments (read -Solyndra, and the score of other failed solar companies) merely to provide them jobs.
The problem is it isn't really a job.
It's the most expensive government program that only exists for the sole purpose of sparing worthless people's egos.
