We Fund Dependency

http://www.realclearpolitics.com

"There are no jobs!" That is what people told me outside a government "jobs center" in New York City. But, 4 researchers quickly found 40 job openings. So what goes on at these government "job centers?" I asked a college intern, to find out. Her conclusions:
--It's easier to get welfare than to work.
--The government would rather sign me up for welfare than help me find work.
--America has taxpayer-funded bureaucracies that encourage people to be dependent. They incentivize people to take "free stuff," not to take initiative.

Unschool Yourself and Your Kids

http://www.kurzweilai.net

I think apprenticeships have the potential to create a much more efficient learning model. Most people learn by doing, not by reading books, listening to lectures or taking tests. If you tray to cram too much information inside at a time, you will not retain much for very long. Testing a person for their knowledge has huge drawbacks namely that you are testing for memory skills, not practical working knowledge. If you learn a little and use it right after, it will reinforce that knowledge and make the learning of the subject much more satisfying.

People think having a job is a government-preserved right

http://www.workers.org

This article was posted in the comments section of this boing_boing story about a Starbucks barista that posted a job rant on YouTube for which he was later fired (http://boingboing.net/2011/09/21/baristas-starbucks-rant-song-gets-him-f... ).

I thought the FTL family would enjoy parsing the lunacy of a doctrine that many out there fully buy into.
Read it and you'll enjoy gems like this:

"In fact, the right to a job is a matter of law—and has been for 62 years!"

Harvard Study: More Government Spending Means Fewer Jobs

http://blog.heritage.org

What happens when a state is lucky enough to have one of their Senators ascend to one of the three most powerful committee chairmanships? According to a new study by three Harvard Business School the average state then experiences a 40 to 50 percent increase in earmark spending (the figure is a smaller 20% for powerful House committees). So this new government spending is then a boon to the state right? The public spending stimulates economic growth right? Wrong. Turns out, increased federal spending is connected with a decrease in corporate capital expenditures and employment.
