This is one of those essays that I turn out, where offer some brief bit of wisdom.
It is bothersome to some degree....to be told over and over throughout a day via various news networks, newspapers, chat forums, and blogs.....of what the government perceives as it's "job".
It really isn't the government's job to create government jobs to help lessen the unemployment situation of the nation.
It isn't the government's job to determine your kid's outcome in life....other than providing some basic education across the board.
It isn't the government's job to run banks....other than ensuring banks don't shut down because of incompetence and you lose your savings (up to $250,000). Beyond that $250,000 with that bank....if in a savings or checking account.....yeah.....the government has no responsibility and you pretty much are screwed.
It isn't the government's job to ensure enough carrots, tomatoes, pumpkins, or turnips are grown in America.....nor is their job to ensure enough American-grown beef, pork, or chicken are delivered to groceries to ensure our survival.
It isn't the government's job to ensure accuracy with news networks for the 6PM nightly news that you enjoy.
It isn't the government's job to ensure enough bandwidth exists for you to download Stargate Universe, Chinese porn, or NASCAR racing events....to get delivered to your smart-phone in the backyard garage.
It isn't the government's job to deliver four-star, three-star, two-star, or even one-star medical opportunities to you, or ensure you live a long and semi-productive life.
It's not the government's job to ensure you don't over-eat on bacon and die by age fifty.
It's not the government's job to monitor 3.7 million school teaches in America....to prevent them from student-teacher sex romps or fake credentials. Your local principal or board of education are more than capable....have enough 'powers'....and can be easily fired if they can't do the job.
It's not the government's job to limit the size or shape of the container of Mountain Dew that you consume each day. If you are stupid enough to consume a 44-ounce Dew amount each morning......it's your screw-up, not the government's screw-up.
It's not the government's job to rig up NCAA bowl games to benefit some governmental priority. We already have enough NCAA dimwits who can rig up the bowl business to benefit Auburn, Texas Tech, University of Alabama, and Georgia to get somewhere in the final ten.
It's not the government's job to find Bigfoot....stop Bigfoot....terminate Bigfoot.....or even prove Bigfoot even exists.
It's not the government's job to order someone to marry someone, or to find you some suitable partner to accept your eccentric ways, or approve of eighty-eight kinky ways of delightful pleasure.
It's not the government's job to determine foolishness, regulate provocative talk, or determine the best place in the backyard for a septic tank.
It's not the government's job to provide a roof over your head, provide three hot meals a day (unless you signed up as a Army Private), or ensure a world-class airport in your state with direct-flights to Daytona or Aruba.
It's not the government's job to ensure your kid speaks Finnish, Spanish, Russian, Chinese or French. To be honest, it's not even their job to ensure your kid speaks English....other than you got to do something with English literature graduates....they can't just work evenings at 7-11 or run the fry machine at McDonalds.
It's not the government's job to bring culture, art, proper eating habits, or fairness across to the public.
Sadly, there's no 'boss' that you can really hold responsible for the government's job.....no one that you can fire. If you suggest the President....think about the various gimmicks in effect to hinder you from firing him. We are stuck with something that no one ever dreamed to be this big....this massive....and this dangerous.
