It’s safe to say that socialists don’t really live on a little planet we like to call earth, having their heads firmly planted in the clouds, dreaming of a society governed by infallible elitists who know what’s best for all.
Yes, believe it or not, there are actually people in positions of power who really believe this pie-in-the-sky nonsense of big government playing parent. Like Sen. Bernie Sanders for example.
Sanders recently said his goal was to have a government job for everyone. Well, the good folks on Twitter wasted absolutely no time coming up with some new job category ideas to help the unabashed socialist reach his goal all the quicker.

There’s one aspect of that “plan” that remains unknown, which is how Sanders’ dream would be paid for. Also unknown are exactly what kind of federal jobs they would be. Fortunately, tweeters were happy to offer some suggestions and predictions for what #BernieJobs would be:

There’s some real zingers in there, wouldn’t you say?
What’s sad is that Sanders isn’t some hack who is using the socialist platform as a means of appealing to hardcore leftists. He actually, really, from the bottom of his heart, believes progressivism is the right course of action for our country.
Whether we should weep or scream in terror over that is up to you.
