Government Vs. Souls

Perhaps you thought you'd heard every possible logical absurdity. Nope:
Rep. Cummings: People ‘Come to Government To Feed Their Souls’

"(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Elijah Cummings (D–Md.) says, “so many people come to government knowing that they are not going to make the kind of money they would make in the private sector but they come to government to feed their souls.”

Cummings was speaking in Washington D.C. at the Legislative Conference of the National Treasury Employees Union on February 4th when he made the comments.

“People do not seem to understand that so many people come to government knowing that they are not going to make the kind of money that they would make in the private sector but they come to government to feed their souls,” Cummings told the audience.

The Maryland Democrat also told union members that getting federal workers a raise higher than the one proposed in President Obama’s budget is among his priorities.

“So what are my priorities? What’s my reason for being here?” Cummings said. “My ardent priority is to do whatever I can to help federal workers obtain fair compensation and meaningful pay raises.”

“President Obama’s budget for the next year recommends a 1.3% pay raise for federal employees I believe this is to low. I love the president but I believe this is far too low, far too low.”

“That’s why I co-sponsored with Representative (Gerry) Connelly (D-Va.) the FAIR Act. Which would raise pay up to 3.8% - even that’s too low.""
Apparently it takes more than 3.8% to properly feed their souls. However, that does make it obvious what the Leftist soul feeds on.

People flock to government, not out of selflessness (as the Clinton's claimed) but out of the desire to have an easy, recession-proof, income which places little demand on the job holder. Further, the government income is actually higher than equivalent private sector income, according to the CBO:


Just another politician talking garbage to union members.

This is a highly amusing redefinition of the term "soul food."

Haha! Because when I want to feed MY soul, the very first thing I think of is 'man, my government is just the right place to go!'.

The Bremerton VA building as Church... now there's a thought direct from Hell.

According to Yahoo news,Hicks' facebook page contained both anti-christian and anti-muslim comments.
Atheists are going to have a tougher time pinning this on christians than they did with the Andres Breivik incident.Their only option is to claim the motivation for the murders was over parking space and not religious.
