Also along those lines, should the need arise, most of them could find comparable work in the private sector because they are educated and have practical, useful work experience.
And then there's you. Enjoy the drawdown!
Has your policy of 'make shit up about people you disagree with' lead to any big scoops lately? Better get cracking or Lois Lane's gonna get the front page.
Seriously, can I please see your evidence that I have no education or practical, useful work experience? You publicly lie about my employment, my workplace, my duties, my responsibilities and my service record, and you pretend to be a journalist when all you are is a liberal who hates poor people and the military.
If you don't cry about needing to shrink big government, then there's not the hypocrisy of your being on the government teat. It's like a soldier sympathizing with the militia against the police state.
Or a journalist using his free speech to tear down the very people who bleed or die for his free speech. Or a pacifist who uses any right won on a battlefield? Or a liberal who wants the law to force other people to pay for something inside her uterus but wants the law kept off her uterus.
You can think the government is too big and still see national security as a vital element of the country. Liberals disagree, but they're allowed to kill you with Predator drones in a country that never attacked us on 9/11 so that's all right.
