No, it's not very interesting because it simply isn't true. On the average government employees are better paid than the average american, but that's only because government jobs tend not to be minimum-wage McJobs.
When controlled by educational achievement, the exact opposite is true.
The average government employee with a bachelors degree makes 25% LESS than the average private industry employee with a bachelors degree.
Well, actually the current state of the economy is proof enough that "these guys who spend their entire lives predicting financial markets" aren't god at predicting financial markets.
Who the hell would believe these guys could predict soccer?
Of course there's a defense.
There, it's easy.
I like the 'court-ordered vigilantism', myself.
Nope, such devices have been made by EV hobbyists. There's a guy in CA http://www.mrsharkey.com/pusher.pdf who made a EV out of a VW Rabbit, then made a hybrid by lopping off the front end of another Rabbit, and attached it via a rigid towbar to the back of the EV, along with the necessary control electonics for changing gears, etc.
