How Money Walks

Post by ed » Mon Aug 06, 2018 3:11 pm

You know, sincere expressions about how we have to take care of the downtrodden are swell. And to hear the reporting on the LSM one might think that the folks in places like Cali and Mass and other democrat run states are all down with this open handed philosophy.

However, there is more to the story.

That reminds me of a phone conversation I had (mumblety years ago) with a job shop recruiter from California who was trying to convince me to take a contract in California. When the conversation got around to money, she quoted me an hourly rate that was insulting, especially for California, and when I declined to take a cut in pay, especially to move to the Democratic Peoples Republic of Kalifornia, she got all huffy and said, "Yeah, well, there are plenty of people here who will take that hourly rate." And so I asked politely, "then why are you talking to me?" And I hung up. I like Florida better.

BWAHAHAHA... excellent story xoup!

Been in that situation a time or two myself. No question that a person needs work, but work does not equate with bending over and taking a tentacle up the ass. :)
