They're sitting pretty in their mansions, driving their Bentleys, taking out their yachts on weekends.
Here's Doug Matconis, a libertarian blogger at Outside the Beltway, putting it succinctly:
The party is over guys, and your days of feeding off the government trough are coming to an end.This fits nicely in the "government bad, non-government good" hole that Libertarian thinking firmly plants you in.
See, you could be working for a living --ie providing services in exchange for compensation-- but if you're doing it for the government, you are automatically a moocher or a looter or whatever buzzword extracted from Ayn Rand's fragrant ass.
I wish I could be so dumb. Incentives matter, not just for the big shot CEO but for the teacher, the cop, the dogcatcher, and the street sweeper. If I had a philosophy that blinded me to this reality, I would chuck it immediately.
