Politics and work ethics(6 posts)

Politics and work ethicsgregario

Not to open a can o'worms here but has anyone ever noticed a relationship between a person's politics and their work ethic? Here where I work it seems like the laziest most worthless wastes of space are also the most whiny liberals. A supervisor of a department that I work closely with who is known throughout the company as completely incompetent and lazy is also the biggest liberal here. Is this just a gross generalization or is there some validity to this?

There are plenty of hard working, thoughtful, intelligent, L!berals, believe it or not. There are also lazy, ineffective, Conserv@tives.

"Work ethic" is a bit difficult to define, isn't it? Not sure how you'd go about objectively studying this if you wanted to.

But it's been my observation here. There are a few guys that who are known as lazy do-nothings and they are also the biggest Left leaning liberals here. That's not to say that I am exclusively conservative in my views either.
And all conservatives are fascists & slumlords, right?cory

But I stand amazed, Doug, that you didn't leap aboard this argument.
