Explaining The Value Of Labor To Leftists Who Hate The Concept Of Work, by Tyler Durden

To hate work is to hate survival and to hate life itself. Every simpering wimp who thinks its the duty of the rest of us to support him should be thrown off the dole and left to find out the value of labor on his own. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
