Can you say ELITIST mentality? Pure class warfare. Total socioeconomic discrimination. When rights become privileges. When privileges are regulated. When regulations ban private sector participation. Goin' down that long lonely road...and it ain't no snake road..I guess maybe it is...in a very cold ironic way.

"Johnny, if you want to have a lizard or a snake, you go to College and get a Biology degree. Then you can work at a Zoo and care for society's animals there. If you go for your Masters degree, you'll probably actually be able to interact with reptiles in the wild...provided there is enough grant money available." By the way, in this example, all Johnny's options are "govment" billets in one form or another. Did anyone catch that?

We all know what professional/institutional/academia's track record for success in these matters is...especially when you consider the costs. By their cost-vs-benefit standards, in analogy, one "govment" Anole would be worth several thousand dollars.
