Merriam-Webster defines "servant" as: one that performs duties about the person or home of a master or personal employee.
I've had about a gut full of fat-cat, rich, elitist, entrenched government members (of both parties) of the ruling class referring to themselves as "public servants." While they surround themselves with security, maids, servants, bodyguards, and personal escorts, they have the audacity to refer to themselves as servants?! Who do they think they're fooling? These politicians and elites are not public servants. Public servants are the law-enforcement officers, firemen, first-aid workers, etc, risking their lives and keeping our streets safe on a daily basis for a fraction of what these politicians make and the perks they receive.These politicians are more like public parasites - living off of the sweat and labor of average American citizens - and producing nothing.
Ruling class elites dining on lobster, drinking $200 a bottle wine, indulging themselves in self-delusional, and exaggerated self importance are NOT public servants. The only ones fooled are themselves. Case in point, the recent state dinner for Chinese Communist dictator, Hu Jintao:
Action star Jackie Chan and pop diva Barbra Streisand topped a guest list including three presidents and political and media elites at a US state dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao Wednesday.
