    Ease of criminal/unethical/immoral activity.

    Although engaging in such activity usually gets one kicked out of said career.

    Look how long some people have been in Congress.

    But those who serve long tenures generally are not criminals.

    You dream.

    Maybe unethical and immoral was missed. This post was edited by Thriftymaid at December 30, 2022 9:02 AM MST

      Are you forgetting people such as Marion Barry?

    :(

    He is irrelevant to this discussion since he was never elected to Congress.

      Actually, it absolutely is relevant to the conversation because you’re focusing only on the word “Congress”. The overall post itself is about jobs, about working, about professions, not mere about one narrow aspect of it. Barry’s case presents one of many examples that refute your claim. Nice attempt at a dodge; it didn’t work.

    Which often precludes entry.”

    It is irrelevant because my assertion was in response to Thriftymaid's comment about Congressional tenure.

    Same dodge, same ineffectiveness.

    Same lack of awareness for not having read the entire thread, same irrelevant example, same stubbornness.

     You and I are both stubborn. And of course I read the entire thread, I’ve read every single post associated with this thread, and I know how to evaluate what I have read. Of course you brought up Congress as a subtopic, fine, and of course it does not dismiss the fact that the overall conversation is about jobs in general. You’re merely trying to save your own face when you’ve been proven wrong on some points that you try to bring up, not only proven wrong by me, but also by ThriftyMaid.
      You really don’t have a history or a display of traits o here that indicate you’ll ever admit when you’re wrong about ANYTHING, that’s obvious and apparent. For that reason, I would not even expect you to say that you understand you’re in the wrong. At the same time, it doesn’t mean I’m just going to let you off the hook  either.

    Actually, Thriftymaid brought up Congress. Grrrrrr. Who’s stubborn?

      Good point, I stand corrected on that point, you are right and I was wrong; you did not bring up Congress. 

      We’re both stubborn, you and I, that is a longstanding truth that has not diminished in any way.

    Not a big deal, but for some reason I've never forgotten this incident

    The secretary's hot.

    The company logo matches the botched-up tattoo you got in that van behind Walmart.
