Well, well, well. It seems the good folks at the Securities and Exchange Commission have been busy. You may remember the stock market’s recent downturn starting in 2008. It seems that during that year, plenty of folks at the SEC weren’t watching the market. Instead they were busy watching porn.
This is wonderful fodder for parody, so here is my latest creation:
Now, I’m not going to tell them that they can’t pursue “adult” entertainment on their own time (though I do reserve the right to tell them that they shouldn’t). However, they did so on the clock. Since it was a government job, then that means that they were getting paid to watch porn with our money.
Good grief. I always knew big government was obscene, but I didn’t know it was literally so. Of course, this also brings to mind a hardware-based euphemism that is often used to describe what the government does to taxpayers. If you are really that curious: it’s not a nail. What, did you think I would spell it out? I do try to keeep it family friendly around here.
Now, I don’t know what effect it would have had if they had been working on the clock instead of… um… engaging in extracurricular activities. Could they have stopped the collapse? Who knows.
Of course, knowing the big government philosophy of the folks in DC, they’ll probably say that the cure is more government. Oh, yeah… they’ll probably blame Bush or Republicans or Conservatives for this, too.
