22. I'm a federal employee

I'm one of a handful of people who works on assaying our government's gold. Last year the US government producted and sold approximately 20% of the worlds supply of gold bullion. I personally assayed half of that (or 10% of all gold bullion sold in the world last year).

Cut my pay 30-40% and see where I go. Find a qualified chemist who can pass a background check and a security clearance who'll work for a fraction of what I'm paid. 40% taken off of my pay would put me down to making $38,000 a year. That isn't even close what a chemist makes in the private sector. Hell, college graduates with no work experience make more than that.

I guess I'll have to suppliment my income by making meth if Romney is elected...
