Last week, the CBO reported that 2.5 million people will likely quit their jobs to cash in on ObamaCare subsidies and other government programs.
That brought to mind a famous TV philosopher … Maynard G. Krebs.
In the late 1950s and early 1960s. there was a popular TV show called “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis” … it feature a bon vivant girl-chaser (Dobie) and his beatnik friend Maynard G, Krebs (played by Bob Denver who was Gilligan on Gilligan’s Island).
- Technical note to younger readers: a beatnik was a self-proclaimed member of the “beat generation” – think early day hippies and slackers.
Maynard had a philosophy of life that wasn’t exactly work-inclined.
In fact, whenever Maynard would hear the word “work” he’s have an immediate reflex action…..
Watch this short clip to see Maynard’s reaction to the word “work”.
Now, when you hear the words “liberate workers from their job”, think of Maynard and imagine a chorus of 2.5 million people yelping “work”
