Public service used to be public service when it involved successful people like George Washington temporarily tackling a public role they didn’t want before going home.
It’s not public service when otherwise worthless human beings get lifetime public jobs by lying and cheating their way to power in order to steal money and boss everyone around while ensuring that their worthless kids can do the same thing.
Speaking of, here’s Joe Biden.
President Biden urged students at the University of Delaware not to lose hope in America and take up a life of public service.
“We need all of you to get engaged in public life and the life of this nation,” Biden told graduates of the school in a commencement address. “There’s one message I hope you take from me today: This is no time to be on the sidelines. It’s not hyperbole. I mean it from the bottom of my heart.”
Let’s recap Biden’s wildly successful service to the public.
Biden was a bad law student and he did not make a good lawyer, bouncing from one firm to another, working briefly as a public defender without leaving any impression, and managing a pool. Successful young attorneys on their way up do not take jobs managing swimming pools.
He graduated from the University of Delaware with a C average: the 506th student in a class of 688. When his grades weren’t C’s, they were usually D’s.
He then struggled through a JD from Syracuse University where he was nearly expelled after being caught plagiarizing a paper, and finally graduated 76th out of a class of 85 students. His academic performance was so miserable that an insecure Biden would spend much of his political career lying about academic successes that were humiliatingly exposed as frauds.
Biden falsely claimed that he had graduated with three degrees from college, was the outstanding student in the political science department, that he went to law school on a full academic scholarship, that he was in the top half of his class. None of that ever happened.
So C students of the U of D, you too can get ahead in a completely undemanding profession while financing the crack habits of your offspring.
Choose public service, the big guy means it from the bottom 10% of his heart.
