Why is the "private sector" better than the "public sector"?

Teachers, firemen, and policemen are losing their jobs because they are part of the public sector rather than the private sector. According to some on the right, they are useless eaters and leeches, that are worse than anyone that works in the private sector. That would include pimps, whores, radio propagandists, and private equity thieves. These folks that put their lives on the line to make other people's lives better and safer are vilified as robbers of tax revenues, as if their services are unneeded and worthless.

I can think of a lot of "private sector" jobs that do not serve society and we should be so lucky as to replace them with "public sector" jobs that make our country a better and healthier place to live. I am sick of their bullshit. They can take their "private sector" crap and stick it where the sun doesn't shine.

1. Well, I heard a retired teacher state this very well...
'They are trying to destroy public sector unions because the private sector unions have been hammered into submission. We'll ship your jobs to right to work states, out of the country, but every city, county and state needs teachers, EMT's, firefighters, etc., our jobs can't be outsourced, and that's the reason for the attacks.'

Well said and very true.
