The Government is my shepherd, I need not work.
It alloweth me to lie down on good jobs; it leadeth
me beside the still factories.
It destroyeth my initiative and leadeth me in the paths
of a parasite for political purposes.
Yea, though I walk through the Valley of Laziness
and deficit spending, I will fear no evil, for the
Government is with me.
Its doles and vote-getters, they comfort me.
It prepareth an economic utopia for me by appropriating
the earnings of my grandchildren.
Surely, the government shall care for me all the day
of my life, and I shall dwell in a fool's paradise
