Mr. McGuire: I just want to say one word to you, Ben. Just one word.
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.

Add to these 45 the expected losses as the EPA and obamas promised 'end run around congress' regulations shut down the mines and power plants.
