Laughter is the best medicine.

Firefighter: “You want answers?”

Taxpayer: “I want the truth!”

Firefighter: “You can't handle the truth!”


Firefighter: “Taxpayer, we live in a world that has fires, and those fires have to be extinguished by men and women with hoses. Whose gonna do it? You? You, other Taxpayer? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for lower taxes, and you curse our chili cookouts. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That our obscene salaries, overtime, benefits, and pensions, while immoral, probably saved my vacation home in Lake Tahoe. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, provides jobs for those who clean my houses and wash my cars. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at unemployment and foreclosure support groups, you want to be, you need to be me, because you’re unemployed and your house is in foreclosure. We use words like overtime orgy, pension spiking, free taxpayer-paid gas for our personal vehicles. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending our obscene salaries, overtime, benefits, and pensions. You use them as a cry for mercy. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a taxpayer who rises and sleeps under the unaffordable illusion of public safety that I provide, and then questions the compensation I extort from you to provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a ladder, and rescue a kitten stuck in a tree. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.”

Taxpayer: “Did you screw the taxpayers?”

Firefighter: “I did the job I...”

Taxpayer: “Did you screw the taxpayers?”

Firefighter: “You're Goddamned right I did!”

RE: "Unsustainable" compensation and pension plans for public parasites (i.e. government employees):

I laugh hysterically when I hear a hypocritical public parasite, (many of whom are double-dippers raking in nearly $500,000 per year in combined salary and pension payments), say that their compensation and pension plans are "unsustainable," but these are the same public parasites who ruthlessly "negotiated" for these "unsustainable" compensation and pension plans and who also cry like petulant children when the taxpayers beg these public parasites to reform their "unsustainable" compensation and pension plans to save funds for vital public services.

Got mine!

Keeping mine!

Make the next generation pay for mine!

Don't care if the state, county, city/town is broke, PAY UP! Raise taxes! Borrow money to make pension payments!

Bring us your finest meats and cheeses!

Kiss our imported leather shoes and boots!

Wash our imported luxury vehicles!

Bow to us!


The problem will only get WORSE in the future because there are THOUSANDS of state, county, city/town public parasites who are locked into the "unsustainable" pension plans and will retire in the next 10-25 years with astronomical pensions.
