Iraqis are mollycoddles !!!

Do you know that our government spoils us very much?.
You must be wondering how!!!
Well, in summer our caring beloved government does not give us electricity to allow us have free Sauna!!! They want us to be slim, to be fit and healthy.

The government doesn't offer fuel to the generators to reduce the pollution in the air! And to protect us from the generators noises, they want us to sleep well so as to wake up in the next morning to be CODDLED MORE.
The government doesn't offer fuel for the cars, in order to lessen pollution and car accidents. In this way they make us do walking sport, to work and school, I even had to walk from the hospital gate to the emergency room, when I was sick. walking is very useful and healthy sport as you know..
The government doesn't control the situation, but impose stroll bans during the night and sometimes during the day, because they want us to spend more time with our families and hence improve our relationships. The government make us leave our homes and neighborhoods (when the situations get worse) to allow us visit our relatives and spend few days with them.

The government doesn't make a strong and serious plan to catch the terrorists who kidnap Iraqis, because our lovely government wants us to live real adventures!!
The government doesn't give us passports easily, because they don't want us to spend our money randomly in a foreign country.
The government doesn't offer electricity for our heaters in winter, to make us feel like we live in Alaska while we are in our homes.
The government doesn't offer oil for our Sopas (kind of heaters in Iraq work by oil) because they want us to breathe fresh air.

The government doesn't offer gas for the cookers, because they care about our health, they want us to eat fresh food, fruit and vegetable, and to avoid fires that occur because of gas leak.
The government doesn't offer medicines to hospitals, because they want us to use the herbs, it is better than medicines and don't contain poisons!!
The government lies (I couldn't find the wisdom behind that, probably because of my young age, but I trust my government's good judgment).
The government doesn't stop this chaos , because they want us to experience new things all the time such as mines , bombing cars , bombing animals as donkeys (once the terrorists bombed a donkey in a market) , bombing human beings!!!! , and if someone died because the explosion, it is ok , we should believe that it 's his/her destiny , and of course they would APPRECIATE that ,because they might go to heaven or to hell (and even hell is better than Iraq ).
The government coerces the girls to wear scarfs and Abayas, to revive our folklore that is why some politicians wear (turbans and Dishdasha).
The government steals money, to improve the economy! But I can not understand how!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
The government doesn't offer jobs for it's citizens , because WE ARE SPOILED.
In the past Iraq was unknown country, but now we became famous as we became the first line news, so we became spoiled and famous at the same time.
the government doesn't spoil it self, how? In the other hand
They have electricity all the time, to sleep well, and wake up astir early, to serve the Iraqi people and spoil them of course.
They get very high salaries to pay high TAXES!!!!
I know that we live like that for a wise purpose, but I wish we can make a Life – Swap with our beloved government.


Does your governments spoil you like that ? I am sure 1000000000% that my government is extraordinary.
Now, my biggest fear is that you feel jealous.
When my mom call grandma and tell her "I can't bear this life anymore" my grandma replay "you must, may be god is TESTING us, to see our faith and ability to bear ". Once my mom replied "OK, BUT, I WANT TO GRADUATE MA"….!!!

The Spoiled citizen, Sunshine

I love your humour and attitude. You are a very mature young woman. I wish that your government would spoil you a little less....spoiling children is never good ;).
Be safe...with hope and prayer, maybe you'll be finished with your "test" soon.

You do have a good sense of humour for sure Sunshine. Many in Canada complain about our government but it doesn't compare to what you must endure on a daily basis.
I continue to pray for the people of your country.

Unfortunately, Iraq is 50 years too early for libertarianism (a group in the USA that opposes most government, taxes, etc.).

Well, that was funny until I had to explain it.

Don't spoil yourself too much over there. :j

Funny post Sunshine! I feel for the hardships you are in, but I can't help but admire the wisdom you have at such a young age. Many in America never learn the lesson you have already apparently learned...that government can't give you happiness. Government can do many things, but it is up to each person to find happiness for themself in whatever situation they find themself in. Keep thinking and exercising your brain Sunshine...the world is full of opportunities for people with minds like yours.

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.
Congress said someone may steal from it at night, so they created a night watchman position (GS-4) and hired a person for the job.

Then Congress said, "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning position and hired two people: one person to write the instructions (GS-12) and one person to do time studies (GS-11).

Then Congress said, "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Q.C. position and hired two people, one GS-9 to do the studies and one GS-11 to write the reports.

Then Congress said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions, a timekeeper (GS-09) and a payroll officer (GS-11) and hired two people.

Then Congress said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?"

So they created an administrative position and hired three people: an Admin. Officer (GM-13), an Assistant Admin. Officer (GS-13) and a Legal Secretary (GS-08).

Then Congress said, "We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost," so they laid off the night watchman.
