A JOB IMPLIES AN EXCHANGE OF EFFORT FOR MONEY.

A few days ago, Chris Matthews delivered a rant about the necessity of Public Spending to provide Work for the Disaffected Residents of Ferguson, Missouri.  By extension, there are plenty of other economic backwaters to which his argument might apply.


Give us that old-time religion.

One wonders, though, how effective a jobs program will be in neighborhoods with residents rendered unemployable by Common Core, the minimum wage, bargains available at the dollar store, and state-sponsored lotteries, perhaps the most regressive transfer any government ever conceived.
