Indeed. I used to work for a Department of Defense laboratory, which afforded me the spectacle of drinking coffee with the engineering types while they traded stories about those damned government employees with their union bosses and how you can't get any work out of the lazy bastards.

And don't get them start on the coloreds in the City!

The only people they accepted as human were Those Who Could Be Seen Working Hard, according to what they accepted as hard work.

Sitting quietly at a desk, thinking hard, and solving their problems did not qualify as Being Seen Working Hard so I quickly moved on to greener pastures. Kurt Vonnegut knew these guys well, as I expect you know.


On a roll, Lance (the letters are also good).

A population that doesn't read very well and can't do enough math to understand credit card debt or government budget shenanigans is easier to manipulate and fool. They do hate women, but I think that's just a side benefit.
