So That's Why it's Called "Service"

You ever get one of those e-mails you wished you had thought of? I got one today that most Libertarians would enjoy.

At one time in my life, I thought I had a handle on the meaning of the word "service", it's the act of doing things for other people. Then I heard these terms which reference the word SERVICE:

> Internal Revenue Service
> Postal Service
> Telephone Service
> Civil Service
> City & County Public Service
> Customer Service
> Service Stations

Then I became confused about the word "service." This is not what I thought "service" meant.

So today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to "service" a few of his cows. BAM! It all came into perspective. Now I understand what all those "service" agencies are doing to us.

I hope you now are as enlightened as I am.
