I lost my job awhile back and took another job for less pay, now, at the time I figured I had two options, the first was to whine and cry about it then go out at night and steal from the people that had some money to supplement my income. Well, I just wasn't raised that way and besides I don't think I would care for prison food much. The second option was to immediately cut back on my spending, work as hard as I could at the new company and find as much side work as I could to supplement the loss. Happily we made it through the tough times, now I'm one of the top guys at work and make more than I did at my previous job. That's the difference between the Government and the free market which would you rather have run the economy.
