Definitions:

Maker>> I currently have a job or I'm retired and have spent at least 30 years in the work force. I am a normal person.

Taker> I am a total dirt ball. I am on the draw now. I have never worked an honest day in my life; OR I am receiving SSI, and I have put in less than 25 years of good, honest work. I am the classic hillbilly. I am not a normal person.

I'm a maker...have been since I was 16, at least part time thru high school, then full time thru college. But a 30 year retirement? I don't work one, but aren't most federal jobs a 20 year retirement?

I'm not talking Federal jobs here, I'm talking a real work career.

If a kid goes into military at 18, does 20 yrs and "retires" at 38, he/she should start a 2nd career.
Yeah yeah

So a federal job is not a real work career? As opposed to..........what do you do anyway Miss self defined heavenly creation, besides of course passing judgment on everyone that you encounter. Federal prison guards and military are among the best, most honest and hard working people I know. I can not imagine a niche for you. You cant work with the public as you seem to offend everyone you talk to. I know you aren't a school teacher or social worker as you have absolutely no compassion. I would lay my money that you make your living sucking off a rich man who thinks you are just as shallow and awful as I do. Why don't you attempt just a little optimism and maybe someone would want to respond to your posts.

Go back & red the post I responded to S L O W L Y

Get your 3rd grader to interpret it for you.

He said that a federal worker has a 20 yr retirement...the rest of us normal people will work 30 yrs or more.

Sh(t-for-brains
Yeah yeah

Read it again. Reads just the same. It says what it says but I'm sorry that my calling you out on it has evoked such a juvenile response. I can see you stomping your little feet and crossing your arms as we speak. Ahhhh the downfalls of the written word. No takey backies.

S L O W L Y

Federal workers: 20 yrs

Normal peoples: > 30 yrs

What's so confusing to you?

Now, respond with a clear and coherent sentence. Make your case in as much eloquence as you can muster.
Yeah yeah

"I'm not talking Federal jobs here. I'm taking REAL WORK CAREERS". Wasn't this exact question structure on the second grade standardized testing? If not.......then... I apologize if I'm still a little over your head. Let's try this. If everybody is either a Wuzzle or a Fuzzle and Jimmy is not a Fuzzle, what is Jimmy? More familiar? Help you out at all?

I believe some of the takers actually consider themselves makers...Just think of the repercussions if suddenly they were all cut off from their benefits...Pepsico out of business because Mountain Dew sales drop..cigarette company stocks drop,no carnivals come to town Apple Day crashes...LOLOL

No need to apologize.

But,

If at least 1 wuzzle is grumpy, then some fuzzles are lumpy.?

Are you stupid or something? The military is a career and you can retire at twenty but also you can stay longer if you want! The reason they offer twenty and out is because your body is broke down and especially broken if you have a combat arms MOS! Just because you are a communist don't disrespect me or anyone else that has served by saying its not a real job, I am pretty sure that you know nothing about serving your country and also I'm positive that you do not have the physical and definitely the mental strength of what it takes to serve! I joined the Corp right after high school and extended my enlistment after 9/11 and I have a job that pays 6 figures but that makes me no better than anyone else. Some people cannot help that they got disabled at a young age, I know that they didn't choose to be disabled accidents do happen in the work place and some people are born disabled! You make fun of people from Ky when in all truth your the ignorant one, in my opinion everyone here in gods country is a whole lot more intelligent than you. You also must be a bitter person/jealous or afraid that one of us dumb a$$ hillbillies make more than your so called educated a$$ does, that's gotta be the reason why you posted a silly subject like this. Move to North Korea or Afghanistan and after you have done that then you can tell all of us hillbillies how much you live it there because I'm pretty sure you will fit right in..
