Benjamin: Yes, sir.
Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
Benjamin: Yes, I am.
Mr. McGuire: GovernmentJob
Benjamin: Exactly how do you mean?
Mr. McGuire: Well, Ben. With a Government job like a cop, CYFD investigator, Eddy Co. 911 dispatch manager or a BLM inspector, you have a choice of how you want to fail the people and still keep you job. You could be incompetant, vindictive, or just a career box-checker. Either way, you get to watch your private-sector-worker neighbors' houses fall into disrepair and their kids' into depression while you climb ever higher in life.
No matter how badly you screw up as a Government worker Ben, you'll NEVER fired. You'll be as safe as a new-hire black in the Dept. of Agriculture.
