Socialism - the Lazy Man's Economic System

A Greg Delany

Socialism always produces Lazy and Envious People! Here is a lesson in both.
My first day at the US Embassy Moscow 1989. I was given a tour of the complex and introduced to Boyd, the Head of the GSO Department. I told him I was a new carpenter. He welcomed me and said he understood it was my first day on the job but he had a fast track job and asked if I could help. I was eager to jump in and help. The job was to replace the Ambassadors desk while he was out of town. He sent me to the tenth floor of the building with a laborer from Belgium named, "Whim". Whim took me to the Ambassador's office and showed me the desk that needed to be disassembled. He told me to wait in the office while he went to get tools. While he was gone I took out my pocket Leatherman tool and had taken apart the old desk and had it in the corridor and had almost completed the install of the new desk before "Whim" returned 40 minutes later. He was shocked. He asked me if I used to get paid by the job in the States? I said, of course, time is money. He told me it didn't work that way at the Embassy. This job was supposed to last us two weeks and no one appreciated a go getter here.
This was a Union group and somehow they hired me, a non Union Carpenter. I completed the job and went to Boyd and explained that I was not here to be lazy and wanted as many jobs as needed attention. I became Boyd's best friend in a hurry and the crews worst enemy. They continually told me that I was trying to make them look bad and I was spoiling a good thing for everyone.. I always replied they were doing a good enough job of looking bad all on their own.
They laid around in the Embassy Cave, while I spent my days trying to serve my country at this US Embassy. I was later hired for START II Treaty jobs because of my work ethic. The lazy were envious of the opportunity I had to work with the Secretary of State Baker and President Bush when they came to Moscow between 1989-1993. They complained to everyone, asking why I got the good jobs. I replied, I earned it! In the end I met Five US Presidents during my time in Moscow. Hard work pays but don't say "work" to loud. It is a Four letter Trigger Word that many people hate. Be a producer and not a consumer. Be a Blessing and not a Curse. Vote for the Working Class and not the FREE loaders in the next election! Support our Liberties and Defend our Constitution!
