What else are you going to do if there are no jobs for everyone?  Trot 
people out to a gravel pit and shoot them?  Dubya said we seniors would 
have to work until we dropped dead.  I asked doing what?

Fascinating experiment. I hope it works out. Giving people a 
guaranteed, modest allowance should *not* be regarded as a charitable 
handout. On the contrary, it's a way of emphasising that all of us who 
are members of a society should be granted some share in that 
society's wealth as we all are (or should-be) co-inheritors of the 
capital that our nation has built up over its history. If people then 
feel that we really are all in this together it has to encourage a 
shared sense of community - with both the rights *and* obligations 
(important!) that naturally flow from that sense.

I saw little old ladies in India taking big rocks and hitting them with a 
hammer until they were little rocks. It was steady work for a few rupies a day! 
Don't think they were shot if they didn't fill their quota. We could run all 
the Central Americans who came here illegally out and create 10 to 20 million 
new jobs for citizens willing to work. We could build the pipeline from Canada 
to Texas. We could end Obama care which would free businesses up to hire more 
than fifty people without being penalized. We could elect Rick Perry for 
president and he could create the same policies on a national level that 
created so many new jobs in Texas over the past few years. We could end or at 
least limit the political power of labor unions so companies would stop 
shipping their jobs over seas due to prohibitive costs of labor here. There are 
a lot of things that could be done to create jobs. Or, we could force 
McDonald's to pay employees 15 to 20 dollars an hour,
 who are still unable to get your order right the first time.
