INNIT OBVIOUS? Reading an item Thursday about stimulus money being used to benefit the homeless in Houston, Rush asks (rhetorically), “Anybody ever hear of JOBS?”
But, of course, since the government cannot really create jobs (except government makework), that’s the nub of the problem. The state can only rob from Peter to give to Paul. It cannot offer Paul a gainful, productive job. It certainly cannot offer gainful, productive jobs to tens of thousands of applicants. It can only make charitable dependents of them.
Which, I submit, is the point of the exercise.
