    As far as I'm concerned, the public sector is just a giant union, except worse - you can't fight them. It's going to become a day when every other non-self employed worker is getting a W-2 from Uncle Sam. I fear those days.

    As you can see, neoliberalism hasn't failed these formally poor people who are in what are catagorically called Newly Industrialised Countries (NIC's) are now prosperous billionaires. Part of the reason for the recent debt and deficit crisis was due to peoples inability to comfortably make sure that they pay back their loans and if not then they face the consequences and big government spending on military and "Security" (invasion of privacy).

    Maybe it has worked in other countries, I don't know, but America has no examples to go by in this instance.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
