    The short answer to your rhetorical question is that U ncle S am is the symbol of the U nited S tates. It is often reported that the name originally was a jocular reference to meatpacker Sam Wilson (at the time of the War of 1812), as stated in the Wikipedia article, but at least one online article casts doubt on that story: http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/621/whats-the-origin-of-uncle-sam

    In the early days of the space program the rockets were referred to as ‘civil servants’. You couldn’t make them work and you couldn’t fire them.

    It would have been more interesting if they would have used John Carpenter.

    In North Charleston, South Carolina, SCG and G (the Electric and Gas “service”) payed to put thousands of solar panels on top of the Airplane factory. Last month, they made the rest of us pay an additional 2 % more per kilowatt hour. Now, they are “asking” for another 6 %.

    This past spring, in Goose Creek, South Carolina, SCG and G wouldn’t give the company Alcoa a discount on it’s electric costs, down from 5 cents to 3 cents per kilowatt hour. (I pay 12 to 14 cents per kwh, btw). Alcoa said they’d have to close the plant and cause the loss of 600 jobs. The result was not published in any of our mainstream media, but they got their 3 cents price; likely by going thru the Berkley Coop.

    This Ziggy strip is just so true. The government doesn’t want to help the wage-earners, just the businesses.
