People whine and bitch about the contractually assured bonuses of CEO's and the government eggs them on... then there's this.
From the article:
“What makes me glum about it all is that it's extremely difficult to get around the political necessity of subsidizing employment at an extraordinarily high cost per job..."WTF is there to 'get around'? How about the concept that government is not, was not, and was never intended to ensure anyone, at any time, for any reason, was employed! It's not their job!
I'll say it again... There is no such thing as a right to a job! The only thing government should be ensuring is individual rights and that isn't on the list.
$1.5 million per job holy freaking deficits Batman! We would actually save money by just giving each and every GM employee a million dollars!
This isn't capitalism, this isn't conservatism, this isn't even rational.
