The Government is my Shepherd...

My friend Ron Toews sent me this email, in honor of tax time, perhaps...

The government is my shepherd:
I need not work.
It alloweth me to lie down on a good job;
It leadeth me beside still factories;
It destroyeth my initiative.
It leadeth me in a path of a parasite for politic's sake;
Yea though I walk through the valley of laziness and deficit-spending,
I will fear no evil, for the government is with me.
It prepareth an economic Utopia for me, by appropriating the earnings of my own grandchildren.
It filleth my head with false security;
My inefficiency runneth over.
Surely the government should care for me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in a fool’s paradise forever.

I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes:

"When was the last time you heard someone say, 'The help here is way too slow and incompetent. Why don't they hire some civil servants?'"
-Ann Coulter
