QuoteOriginally posted by: farmerQuoteOriginally posted by: mynetself If you wouldn't work, what would you do?Spend some time with your children, you irresponsible ogre. Teach them how to sign up for food stamps and college grants. Or if your wife is an alcoholic, you can spend all day finding the vodka bottles she hides.Conclusions that do not follow from a statement and petty moralism... I was missing that. Really.As I thought, not working for you is not even half as easy and fun as you claim it to be. You should probably start looking for preacher jobs around your area. I'm sure you'd find many youngsters who will be happy and impressed by your teachings. Unlike those who are actually trying to achieve something in their life.

QuoteOriginally posted by: mynetselfUnlike those who are actually trying to achieve something in their life.I will rob every goddamn one of them. And they will never stop me. They will keep voting for hustlers who tell them I am needy and I am robbing them in the spirit of equality, and there will be unrest if they don't pay and pay and pay and pay and pay.But you know this. You look down at your paycheck each year, and you pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay and pay. Because you are the one who has hired me to live my life this way. You spend at least four months working to pay my children's medical bills. This is your subtle way of telling me don't work, have kids, that is what you are hiring me to do.So you tell me to work with your mouth. But you tell me not to work with your actions, with your vote and with your wallet. What do you think you are paying for, pets? How do you think people are out there, helpless? Nah, these are live human beings, laughing all the way to the bank with your money.Look at your tax bill you see me robbing you, but you will do nothing about it. And yes I will teach some kids to rob you also because it is funny as hell. It's a sport. And you are the prey. Life is boring without sport, and people who work are like fat buffalo.

You are nuts for comparing Professors with mail clerks. I agree that being a Prof. is not as glamorous as being the CEO of a 'Large Corporation'. However its much better than 95% of banking staff who are doing crap 70 hours a week. A good number of the B School Professors earn > 500k with all the independence that people dream of.Yet to see a Prof who seems frustrated. However as much as half the finance people appear as utterly frustrated.

They make most of their income through executive MBA teaching and consulting work. The income is very low compared to Wall Street. It is a good job only after you pass the age of 50 when Wall Street wants to get rid of you.Farmer, you lazy fucker. Get a job. I hate to think that the government is taking 50% of my paycheck to subsidize many junior Farmers. I used to think the government was taking the money so that 70 year old dudes could get their heart valves replaced and cancer treatment of their nuts. I surely don't want to pay for your kids. Get a job, you lazy fucker.

QuoteOriginally posted by: mrmisterFarmer, do you grow weed? No, I have a multi-billion-dollar food stamp recycling program. We pay homeless people 10 cents each to collect cash receipts from grocery store trash bins. We have mailmen recruit people to sign up for food stamps. We pay $100 a month to the holders to rent the EBT card they are given. Our purchase runners purchase the items on the cash receipts from the grocery stores using food stamps. Our refund runners go to different stores in the same chain, and use the receipts to refund the items for cash. We have 1,120 runners in 28 states. All told, we milk the federal food stamp program for $970 million a month. We are looking for more young go-getters to rob the welfare state. Email resumes to fuckobamavoters@fuckobama.com.

QuoteOriginally posted by: traderjoe1976Dude, I was a professor in the Business School. Let me tell you that there is nothing cool about it. They make most of their income through executive MBA teaching and consulting work. to get your $500K, you have to turn into a traveling consultant. If you're going to do that, you might as well get a job with McKinsey or Bain, because the partners at these big consulting firms make much more than the prof who consults 60 hours/week. The "millionaire profs" are not real profs; they are just glamorized consulting whores.

Quote Email resumes to fuckobamavoters@fuckobama.com.So this is what all this is about? Yet another rant by yet another Obama-hater?I suggest every american vote Bush, or a similar "genious", and strongly support pre-emptive wars around the planet. Fuck welfare. Let's attack Iran cos' they have atomic potential. And then Venezuela - that socialist pig is interfering with the Bush-way-of-life. You know what? I actually suggest both the USofA and the EU attack China. And India. They're the reason for all our economic problems, let's fuck'em. And then Brasil and Mexico. Fuck welfare. Fuck Obama. Everyone reading this, I urge you to do as Farmer says. Everyone stop working. And let us all go to war.That sure will make the World a better place.

Man this thread is going hyperbolic. Consumer Confidence level is certainly at lowest levels since the Great 'D'.
