Do you mean I'm really an indentured servant and I didn't realize it? Damn. I
guess I should have read all those papers I signed!

Well, I have as much "freedom" there as you do -- I can ask for the pay and
benefits I want and if I don't get them, I can go someplace else.

Again, I have that freedom too -- either I can find someone to pay me to do it,
or I can do it on my own. Same as you. :-)

I'm not knocking contractors. I've tried it, and it's not for me, but that
doesn't make it a Bad Thing.
