    Yup. That's the extent of my discussion on it.

    And that is your opinion, too bad you can't say empirically whether or not that is the case.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    That's true. We would have to watch it happen first.

    It is better that people don't have pensions. And if someone negotiates a pension, we sure shouldn't expect them to be held accountable, at least not on the management side. Lord knows those poor folks have it so much harder than anyone else. Hard to see how they get out of bed in the morning without someone helping them.

    When I retire I’ll go to starbucks and order a five-dollar cup of coffee and pay for it with Teamster Pension money, then settle down to argue politics with the resident DP wingers using starbucks Wi-Fi.

    Who knows I just might even run into NP their.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I plan on dying in the classroom with a recorder on. I want to see how long before someone asks if they can leave yet (I won't see it but someone will get a kick out of it).
