"None worked harder than the bosses"

Via Don Surber on Facebook, a great column by John Kass on his hard-working family.
And the parts government played in their lives.
One of my earliest memories as a boy at the store was that of the government men coming from City Hall. One was tall and beefy. The other was wiry. They wanted steaks.
We didn't eat red steaks at home or yellow bananas. We took home the brown bananas and the brown steaks because we couldn't sell them. But the government men liked the big, red steaks, the fat rib-eyes two to a shrink-wrapped package. You could put 20 or so in a shopping bag.
"Thanks, Greek," they'd say.
That was government.
If Obama realized more people see government as the rich folks riding on their work - instead of their vision of government helping - he might tone down his speeches.
