many are called...(thankfully) few are chosen

The Mr. got called for jury duty and he's pissed. I don't blame him. They rah rah about how it's your civic duty and an honor to serve, yet you're forced to miss work and they pay you a shitty $9 a day in Pennsylvania.

Frankly, I fail to see how it's a great privilege to serve. Think about it: you're a hard at work honest citizen, earning a living, and some dumb jackass is out committing crime because he's too stupid or too lazy or too jacked up on coke to get a real job, and YOU have to lose time away from your life because of it. Yeah, that's an honor.

It used to be that they took names from the voter rolls, but that was stopping people from voting. Now I think they use the driver's licenses rolls, too. They SHOULD be using welfare and unemployment rolls because people on those lists don't have to worry about missing work. Anyone sucking off the gub'ment teat should be required to do jury duty at least once during their suckling period.
