Day Four of the Glass Fast

Three days ago:  "I am asking all those who care that the LP message not be compromised by Tom and Kathie Glass to the outside world to please join me in four days of daylight fasting, from now till sundown on Saturday night. Let us focus on Truth and non-violence, as we seek to become one with Truth. The still moments will guide the world to liberty."

Whether the forces of Glass duo darkness win today or the forces of Libertarian Light win today, we are still a long way from home.  The marriage of the National Socialist Republicans and the Global Marxist Democrats in what I term the Demopublican Comunofascist Party still seek to enslave the individual to the collectivist state.  The battle for Liberty will be won or lost in the minds of the youth.  

If Glass should win the nomination, I urge you to buy 10 copies of "Libertarianism In One Lesson" and give one to every member of the LP you know.  If Liberty should win today, buy 10 copies of "Libertarianism In On Lesson" and give one out to every person you would like to be a Libertarian Party member.  We must have libertarians before we can have libertarian culture, and the only way that can happen is for solid libertarian materials to be in the hands and faces of the people inside and outside libertarianism.  

See you all at the event tonight beginning at 8 p. m., where I shall end the fast at sundown.  

And if Liberty should win today, sing a chorus of "Ding Dong The Witch is Dead" for me.

Important Question for Kathie Glass that All Should be Asking Her:

Kathie, you and Tom drive a big black flashy Escalade that looks like it came right out of a presidential motorcade.  Tom says he has a master's degree in business from Harvard, as I remember.  You graduated top of your class and hold a J. D., as I remember reading your claims.  (Both degrees are common among federal agents, as I used to guard Air Force One jets during maintenance at the TSTI Airport at night, while attending Baylor University in 1993, and I later helped Spacial Agent Byron Sage pick though David Koresh's theology during the Branch Davidian Situation that same year.  I've seen a few federal agents in my time, but I digress.)  You, being a member of the bar, are an officer of the court, already a government operative.  You and Tom avoid and never answer my questions directly, and try continuously to get me kicked off and out of various discussions, attributes I've only seen in individuals who later turned out to be federal agents.  You are trying to take the helm of the Libertarian Party of Texas with ideas that are very Republican, and it is clear that you are unfamiliar with the central concepts of libertarianism.  Kathie, why should we believe you and Tom are not federal agents?  If it looks like a duck . . . .

Libertarian Library Night In Temple, Texas, April 12th

Libertarian Library Night In Temple, Texas, April 12th

We will be hearing from U. S. Senate Candidate Jon Roland for the Libertarian Party at 8 p. m. on April 12th in Temple, Texas at a privately disclosed location across town from the LP Convention (214-770-8053/ He will discuss his interactions withMilton Friedman while studying at the University of Chicago, along with his vision for the future. (For you younger folks, who wish to be a Libertarian Intellectual Giant one day, Milton Friedman is someone you want to know about and study.) We'll pass the hat for Jon, to help in covering his cost of travel and campaigning, as well.

I will be showing "Star Wars" afterward for those 21 and older in a beer drinking game. We will have a couple of cases of Miller longnecks on ice that will be used in the following fashion beginning at 9 p. m. Each time the character with whom you self identify appears on screen, you take a swig of beer. Each time the Emperor or Darth Vader appears on screen, we all take a swig of beer.

I'll share a few brief thoughts about "End The Fed," by Ron Paul and his views of how "scapegoating" of latinos is a misdirect away from the real problem of central banking and unsound money, that a gold standard presents the positive solution, not scapegoating latinos.

I woud also like to brainstorm concerning the development of a board of directors and funding of an endowment for an Austin Libertarian College to open 10 to 15 years from now.

I'm Game

I see that "none of the above" is becoming a topic of interest for the gubernatorial post. As I ran as the de-facto- "non of the above" candidate for Texas Governor this cycle, I remind you all that I did sign all the appropriate paperwork to be the LP nominee, but I was removed by the Chair because of a fear that my nomination might jeopardize ballot access were I nominated. If you are gonna risk losing ballot access with a "none of the above" vote anyway, you are welcome to put my name down. If I get the nomination, it will create a constitutional crisis because I refused to sign an oath of allegiance to the ten planks of "The Communist Manifesto" and a host of other laws that no one can honesty read or interpret without a supreme court present anyway. (The oath required by the Sec. of State sets up everyone who takes it to a lie and a compromise with Truth.) My nomination would force a court case over 1st amendment respect of religious opposition to making oaths to temporal laws/ constitutions. (They control us with the oath, you see.) This would create all kinds of cracks to develop "non of the above" voting rights/ laws. The ball is in your court. I'm game.

The Democratic Socialist Paradigm of Kathie Glass

It is no secret that I am a Gandhian in the sense that I worship God as Truth Only, and I have no real problem with collectivism in a stateless environment, as is shown in the libertarian socialism of Gandhiji, my Internet co-hort Noam Chomsky, etc.  I am not a libertarian socialist, which, in my studies, requires a stateless society in order to exist, by the way.  I am a Tolstoyan ("swear not"--give no allegiance to Caesar/ government by oath or affirmation), Gandhian (One who worships God as Truth Only), Rothbardian ( anarco-capitalist, Ron Paul) Libertarian (You do it your way, I'll do it mine).

The demarkation line that concerns me is that any attempt at libertarian socialism within the state conception of life (for a local public school, for example) becomes democratic socialism (Mandela. King), and this represents the violence of the state, if utilized at any level.  There is no ultimate local control under the state conception of life, and I see no evidence of Kathie Glass endorsing a stateless society.

Therefore, I am forced to conclude she is operating under the false hope of developing a libertarian socialist paradigm in her free public school proposal, while in reality endorsing the violence of democratic socialism.  Remember, Marxism is insidious.  If you let it in the door, it will grow until it chokes out everything in the greenhouse.  Government indoctrination day camps for children (10th Plank of "The Communist Manifesto") is not benign.

Libertarian Library Movie Night Update

The new Cesar Chavez movie was a master's course in political non-violent change.  It is the story of the state manipulating laws and opportunity into the hands of the owners/ grape growers and against the farm worker's free market attempts to raise pay for themselves, who simply wanted to collectively bargain for higher wages than $2.00 a day.

President Nixon opened grape markets to Europe and would buy any oversupply for the military to ensure the growers an upper hand with the Chavez group.  Chavez goes to Europe, and the manipulations of the state are overcome.

There is nothing un-libertarian about a group wanting to get together to contract for work with a grower. If five guys want to deal with me to mow my lawn together, it is a fine free market act.  Now, if those five guys get a law passed that I can only do business with their group, then the free market is circumvented.  In every case, the state was a manifestation of a violent manipulation of the market against freedom.

Chomsky's Farm Experiment/ Rockwell's Farm Experiment

Twenty-four miles down I-10 east from downtown El, Paso, Texas, then six miles north on a paved two lane road and another six miles down a dirt road (Sandy Rd.), you will come to a twenty acre parcel of raw desert land, yucca plants and all, at the corner of Sandy Rd. and Mira Grande, another dirt road.  This is property I've owned for over twenty years.

I am interested in a farm experiment that divides this property into two equal areas of ten acres each.  On one side, Chomsky's Farm Experiment, a study in anarco-syndicalism in this raw environment.  On the other side, Rockwell's Farm Experiment, a study of anarco-capitalism. 

I expect the property to hold about ten couples on each side.

Your thoughts and objections on this idea invited.

Most respectfully,

Gene Chapman

P. S.  It is my humble view that optimum human civilization will exist in a fusion somewhere between the anarco-capitalist and anarco-syndicalist worlds.

The Closest I've Ever Been to Liberty

Most of you have never been anywhere near Liberty.  You've been raised to do some duty or task that is placed upon you by the society around you.  You go to school to get a job, to buy a car, to buy a house, to afford a marriage, to afford children, taxes and so on.  It never ends.

I've come close to Liberty once in my life, and it's the most intoxicating thing.  I mean the liberty of the Greek definition:  elutheria -- without liability or obligation.

I was truck driving on I-70 headed West, just a few miles from Vail, Colorado.  I pulled my rig over and stopped at a rest area, where a beautiful brook, full of rounded rocks, was running down the mountain.  As I looked up past the flowers on the side of the hill in front of me, I realized there was no fence.  A sign read something like "wilderness area ahead."  There was a path that disappeared into the forest on up the mountain, and I looked into my map and saw how one could go on to the North Pole, if they wished.

The feeling was a release of tension in my gut, as I considered leaving my wallet in my truck and just walking off.

You need to consider what liberty really is, if you are going to run for office as a Libertarian.  You need to think about every fence you are building.  You need to think about all that you secure today and what it means to that feeling in your grandchild's gut fifty years from now.

I pray I have another moment like that before I die, and I hope you all will experience liberty some day, just once in this life.

Library Update

I have copies of "End The Fed," by Ron Paul and "The Black Book of Communism" in hand.  The former is probably the best argument on paper I've seen for ending the central bank in the U. S., Ron Paul sharing discussions he had with Fed Chairmen through his eleven terms in Congress.  The latter appears to be an 800 page book recording Marxist atrocities and history around the world.

I have one copy of "For A New Liberty:  The Libertarian Manifesto," by Murray N. Rothbard for mailing tomorrow to a young lady who is high up in the Republican Party and requested the book last month.

Don't forget movie night on March 28th at Cinema Latino in Ft. Worth (I-35W between x47 and x46), where we will be learning about Cesar Chavez in the move by his name, "because a libertarian society requires a highly educated population."

I'm Of Two Minds

I traded another email with Dr. Noam Chomsky yesterday, and he is impressed with my research on slavery.  Only his being swamped keeps him from joining me in the research, he tells me.

No "Intellectual of the Age" ever told me such a thing about my work in robotics.

It seems I'm destined to be a sociologist no matter what other path I might choose first.  The Marxist demons robed in flesh we call, "IRS employees," should be met with the intellectual world's best effort, and I am connected within it, for sure.  But how to pay for it and not live under a bridge in the process?

Library Update

We had soft beef tacos and beans and rice at the Dallas/ Ft. Worth Libertarian Book Club meeting tonight.  A margarita did appear, as did cheese cake.

It was more of a book swap than a read tonight.  This might be the best approach for some groups.

We received a $20 donation for books.  Libertarianism is now well on its way to world domination.

We will have a field trip on March 28th to see the new Cesar Chavez movie "because a libertarian society requires a highly educated population."

Nightly Business Report

Dear Nightly Business Report:

I was shocked to hear you give credence to the observation by some group this evening on your program that there are more millionaires in America than ever before.

I would suggest a read of "Money Mischief," by Milton Friedman.  (He was a famous economist, since it appears that yall don't seem to read books.)  Monetary growth/ expansion/ inflation is the primary reason millionaires are being created.  They turned on the printing press (computer pixels) to inflate the money supply out of the 2008 Depression and inflated the stock market.  This created a false impression that people were getting rich.  

In fact, labor wages are stagnate due to the inability of work-a-day folks to adjust their compensation to monetary expansion, without the availability of collective bargaining.  Additionally, according to former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan's book, "The Map and The Territory," indexation of Social Security benefits to price inflation and the creating of Medicare in 1965, along with an expansion of benefits at a 3% compounded rate above that which is sustainable, are the reasons we have not been able to see a wage increase these past couple of decades.  

You're talking to a population of economists here, after all.  Don't piss on me and tell me it's raining.  

Most respectfully,

Question for Gene:

Question:  "Mr. Chapman, what could Kathie Glass do to gain your support?"

Gene's reply:  Well, she would need to publicly apologize to the fine latino citizens of Texas and the World for dehumanizing remarks about them as "ants" in the past.

She would have to repudiate any attempt to secure the borders between Texas and Mexico, as this is an anti-libertarian stance.  Libertarians are open border people at the very least and no border people at their most generous.

She would have to repudiate any e-verify requirements she has endorsed on, for example, as this represents a "numbering of people as cattle" (one of the eight dynamics of enslavement) and is indicative of the Christian 'mark of the beast' concept in Revelation 13:16.

She would need to show knowledge of and opposition to all ten planks of "The Communist Manifesto" and the "Eight Dynamics of Enslavement" from an Austrian School of Economics perspective.

And her husband, Tom Glass, would need to step down from any leadership role in the LP for a year or two to show contrition and apologize privately to the President of the Llano Tea Party for the unprofessional manor in which he distressed her and her assistant this past January.

At that point, I would place Kathie Glass on an equal par with the other candidates.

Kathie Glass Opponents May Desire Police Protection

On the Sunday prior to the Llano Tea Party event this past January, I was purchasing tickets for a guest and myself on the phone from the President of the Llano Tea Party, and she conveyed that she and her assistant in the office at the time were sufficiently concerned about the potential for violence from the phone behavior of Mr. Tom Glass toward me that she informed me that police would be present to address the issue and was no longer taking his calls.  (Police were present at the event, and I'm Gandhian, so violence is not an issue from my end.)

For those of you gubernatorial candidates who will not be just lying down and handing the nomination to Kathie Glass, you may feel the need to have personal security present.  It is a bit intimidating to walk into a situation with such stress hanging over you, I know.

I have pause over attending the LP event over this matter, as I don't have the money for a doctor bill right now, so I know others will be concerned for their situation too.

Where to Invest?

I'm watching these Saturday morning investment shows, and it is funny to watch the move that they have been making in recent years from the three legged stool (Social Security, personal savings and pensions) of investing to a "wobbly" pogo stick of Social Security for retirement income.

The reality is that your retirement in all three areas has been transferred to pay for wars, Obamacare and other government windmill jousting.  According to former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan's book, "The Map and The Territory," government expanded Medicare and indexed Social Security to price inflation about 3% faster than was sustainable since 1965 (49 years and counting).

My suggestion to young people is to get as much education as you can in fields you enjoy working in for a very long time (no retirement), and then see if you can leave the Keynesian-Marxist USA.  I'd make a big part of your education Economics and some technical field (i. e. Electronics).  Economics will show you where the dangers are along the road of life, and Electronics will make you employable in all markets.

I'd suggest you read, "The New Buffettology," by Mary Buffett and David Clark and "The Intelligent Investor" and "Security Analysis," both by Benjamin Graham.  I had the privilege of interacting with David Clark for a couple of years on the Internet back in the 1990's, and this kicked opened the doors for me to interact with Warren Buffett on a limited basis over the decades.  Ben Graham was Warren's teacher at Columbia University.

If you plan to stay committed to America, you will be best prepared for the headwinds of Keynesian-Marxism with these books, along with a subscription to the hard copy of "Value Line Investment Survey."

At the end of the day, depend on the skills you can take with you.  Assets are fleeting in a Marxist environment like we have in America.

Taking Another Class

I've been taking my first Electronics class this semester, and I'm making a 100% grade so far (yea!).  After I spent a substantial portion of my 30's fighting the IRS (personal income tax), with them acting with impunity agasint me (taking my bank account without a court hearing, jailing me to control me, etc.), I realized that nothing in this world is outside their ability to steal and abuse, but one:  Education.  It is for this reason that I continue to invest in my education, and I encourage you to do the same.

In my interactions with tax protester Noam Chomsky, I realized that the IRS attacking him would be counterproductive, as his respected position in the world would only stand to undermine the IRS at every turn.  It's hard for a bunch of government thugs to lock up, embarrass and humiliate a guy with three Ph. D.'s, for example.

The path I choose to fight the IRS is via intellectual superiority, to become Ludwig von Mises, not just admire him.  You would be wise to do the same, if your goal is to overthrow Marxism and national socialism in favor of libertarianism.

Expensive Real Estate for Library Reading Room Concept

I called the real estate agent, and he says the property in question is $1,500 a month, but the owner requires a restaurant in the building. We could sell the fixin's for tacos, I guess, along with coffee or something. 

He also pitched a larger building down the block in Ft. Worth for the Libertarian Reading a Event Room on W. Magnolia for $4,900 a month. It has very high ceilings, he says.

2)  I expect the Libertarian Global Library and Book Exchange will become a political action committee, if the funding gets to that point, so we can hammer on Republican and Democratic candidates.

3)  We found a perfect property on West Magnolia in Ft. Worth for a Libertarian Reading and Event  Room in the restaurant district.  I'll call the realtor on Monday to check rental prices.

4)  A stamp was purchased to start using in the backs of our books.  It reads:

Speaking Invitation to Bavaria

I just got a speaking invitation at an Economic Forum in Bavaria.  I had to look up Bavaria on Wikipedia.  It includes most all of Southern Germany, including the capital, Munich.  I guess I'm gonna have to finish reading "Mein Kampf," if I'm gonna be getting invitations like this, so I can speak throughly to the issues in Germany.

Thanks for the invitation.  Sorry, I don't have a pass port, Bavaria.  I don't believe governments have the moral authority to number me as cattle or to have knowledge and control of my travel.  Maybe later.

It is interesting to see the Republican Party's racism as a reflection of "Mein Kempf," Adolph Hitler's famous book.  You could almost cut and paste "Mexican" or "Latino" into where "Jew" appears in Hitler's pages, and it would read like a Republican Party manual.

We should pass out copies of this book to the Republicans at their State Convention and call it, "The Republican Party Platform."  I bet we could open lots of eyes.

If Mr. Obama Were a General

I see on the news that Mr. Obama's proposed increase in the minimum wage will cost 500,000 U. S. jobs, while offering a slight pay increase for 16,000,000 others.  If Mr. Obama were a general in WWII, it would be the moral equivalent of him leaving 500,000 troops to die behind enemy lines in the Battle of the Bulge so the rest of us could enjoy a Bob Hope Special.

The solution is to abolish central banking and the monetary expansion intrinsic to it that devalues the value of labor wages over time.

Question for Gene

Question:  "Mr. Chapman, what do you think is the number one challenge for libertarians?"

Gene's Answer:  The number one threat to the development of a libertarian society is perceived poverty, the perceived scarcity of resources of cultures and regions to improve their situation.  This includes healthcare, proper food and water access, educational opportunity, personal security, housing, etc.  It is the opportunity for upward mobility from where one perceives themselves to be now.

For each individual these areas I list mean different things.  That is the hard part.

I would like to see libertarians move on two fronts to move the world toward a more libertarian mindset:

First, medical doctors are best positioned to address the issues I list.  To mitigate poverty, libertarians should move into the medical fields in order to share our resources with others, along with our philosophy.  It's hard to attack people who are your healers in every area.

Second, a libertarian society, one in which we are free to determine our own paths, requires a highly educated population.  We must get knowledgeable ourselves in all matters, so we become the expert voice in all areas, the sage, so to speak, who guides the larger population.  (Don't let the Marxist -- state forced collectivist -- dominate any conversation as the expert, which demands study and degrees on our part.)

Chapman Endorses Kathy Lowe-Heil for Congress

After an exchange on the Internet, I am satisfied that Kathy Lowe-Heil is worthy of my endorsement. I hope you all will get behind her, as she is clearly knowledgeable of the Austrian School of Economics (individual liberty) v. the Keynesian-Marxist School of Economics (enslavement of the individual to the collectivist state), is opposed to all ten planks of "The Communist Manifesto," and she is also opposed to all dynamics of slavery that I can see: (taxation of labor, property, numbering people as cattle, gun control, etc., etc.). We have a candidate worth our time!

Gene Chapman, CEO
Libertarian Global Library and Book Exchange

Kathy Lowe-Heil for U.S. Representative to Indiana's 9th Congressional District. Visit our website at

I Like What I See So Far:

Kathy has spent her entire life in the southern Indiana area.  She was born in Corydon, graduated from New Albany High School, and currently lives in Elizabeth with her husband John.  She is the mother of two, as well as a grandmother of two.  The past few years she has had the luxury of being a stay at home grandma.  Her husband has been employed by a local auto dealership since 1984. 

Since 9/11 Kathy has followed national politics closely, and has watched the freedom of American citizens be systematically exchanged for a false sense of security.  She has witnessed the futures of her children and grandchildren being borrowed against, through our government's inability to function within their means.  In 2012 Kathy was elected as a Delegate to Indiana’s Republican Party.

In 2011, when her opponent took office the national debt was at an unmanageable $14T and the debt to GDP ratio was 94%.  Today it is an overwhelming $17.3T with a debt to GDP ratio of 107%.  Each and every American citizen, including Kathy’s granddaughters, holds approximately $54,600 as their share of the national debt.

Kathy Lowe-Heil does not have a law degree or a PhD.  She is an average American citizen, that has experienced the pain of working all week, to take home half her earnings.  She has tried to live within a budget.  But, the government continues to take more and more of what they believe is their fair share.  She has cut out most luxuries and cut quality on necessities.  Kathy knows that as long as middle income Americans have little or no disposable income, there is no hope for job creation.  Like you and me she is 
sick and tired of being sick and tired.  She does not have wealth or big business cronies; she does not have a political bloodline.  Kathy Lowe-Heil is a typical taxpaying citizen, the kind our Forefathers intended to run this country. She has enough courage to stand up and say she has had enough, and she is asking you to join the fight to save the American dream.

Please join us on May 6 to elect Kathy Lowe-Heil as the next U.S. Representative to Indiana’s 9th Congressional District.

To Libertarian Youth

It has been my honor to hear from so many youth leaders across America within libertarianism in recent weeks.  I know we have a sure future for the LP and the larger libertarian movement with so many young university thinkers looking toward the library (books) for direction.

Kathie Glass: "Ants"

I suppose if I were from Georgia, where I understand Kathie Glass is from, racism against latinos would be a norm, so her use of the term,"ants," to describe latinos crossing the border between Texas and Mexico is at least understood, while not appreciated in a politician.

The problem from my end is that I was born here in Texas in 1966.  The men who built fence on my father's farm were Mexican and taught my father Spanish, the Spanish I used to hear my father sing along too on the car radio when I was a little boy.  My sister has a mother who is an "ant," by Kathie Glass standards.  A house full of "ants" are sleeping about 20 yards from me right now, as I write this:  my neighbors.  Down the street are more houses full of "ants."  I call them my friends.  I got my hair cut by an "ant" today next door to the local latino shopping center where I like to buy my food.

In early 2001, I moved to El Paso to see if I could make a go of it on 20 acres of sand I bought a few years before.  The job I got was as a marketing manager for an alfalfa and pecan farm on the Rio Grande River.  It was like a old Western novel to live those months there.  You could throw a rock from the edge of the farm and hit a bus stop on the Mexican side of the river.  The men who worked along side me were very hurt at the least white reference to their presumed inferiority, so I learned to be very careful not to offend, as it has never been my nature to do such a thing to anyone on racial lines.  I learned to eat the melon under the giant cottonwood trees there on the river when they offered in order to show that I was not too good to eat with them.  After months, I was eating in their homes, on occasion.  And they live a good life there, let me tell you.

What we need in Texas is not more Kathie Glass politicians from Georgia telling us who our family members should be or when a river should be crossed.  People down on the Mexican border have been crossing that river for 500 years with no problem.  That presumed problem is a government created problem.  Hell, the people we pissed of in the Middle East don't even come at us through Mexico anyway;  they come through their established communities in Detroit and Ontario, up North.  And if we would give them a fair shake, we wouldn't even have them pissed at us.

Kathie Glass has a long way to go to be ready to lead anything in Texas, especially a political party that gains for some odd reason the power to push people around and even kill them in the name of the state. Have you ever heard of something so ridiculous as a racist libertarian?

Gene Chapman. CEO
Libertarian Global Library and Book Exchange

  • Kevin Pick Why not quote Kathie Glass in your article? Here is what she said:

    “That’s not the way for Texas," she said. "We should secure our border at the border. The Arizona-style interrogation, after people have become integrated in the community, is like my ants in my pantry, and I want to remove them one at a time and take them outside.”

    I don't find that racist but I do find your article disingenuous. Could you please at least quote her, in the name of honesty and integrity?
  • Gene Chapman Jeff, can you comment on this?
  • Gene Chapman Jeff is looking at it. I'm still not impressed with her border securement, her use of insects to describe Mexicans or . . . .
  • Jeff Daiell The quotation is from The Texas Tribune. Ms. Youngblood-Glass has since claimed she actually said "ants in my panties", which she apparently is too ignorant of politics to realize is not the way to speak if she wants to be taken seriously as a candidate for Governor.

  • Kevin Pick Thank you for responding to my concerns. 

    All specifics aside, I think any article that discusses a quote from someone ought to have that quote somewhere in the article. Therefore, this article would be greatly improved by starting it off with "On XX day, XXX person stated XXX to XXX."

    Obamacare Frees us From "Job-Lock?"

    Ok, PBS says tonight that Obamacare is estimated to lower the job market by 2.5 million over the next 10 years, per the Office of Budget and Management.  This helps free people who do not wish to work (known as "job lock"), but are forced to work to maintain their insurance policies prior to Obamacare.

    Well, Mr. Obama, I am job-locked too, and I need the government's help to free me.  I have to work a job to maintain food in my belly, a roof over my head and, yes, to pay your new tax/ insurance bills.

    If I didn't have to work, I could lay around and watch tv all day.  And if you would just speed up my social security benefits to meet my 47 year old needs instead of waiting until I'm 62, I could go lay on the beach in Hawaii and look at all the pretty girls from dawn to dusk.

    I'm "job-locked," Mr. Obama.  Free me!  Make these other bastards pay more taxes so I can lay back!
