Jobs vs. Work
The lamestream media told you:
The government's ambitious plans for job creation haven't worked out as planned. But it's not the fault of the man in the White House who is trying as hard as he can to create jobs. It's the fault of the other party and problems created before he took control of the office. Jobs are down, the economy is down, you're down, future prospects are down, down, down. We'll continue to create jobs, for the good of the country and the economy. Have a nice day.
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Jobs vs. Work -- The Big Government Lie
Why can't government create jobs, really?
This non-gun issue is critically important.
The "news" media hasn't got a clue.

The Uninvited Ombudsman
The phrase create jobs is constantly in the headlines these days.
Candidates and the man in the White House seem to be all about creating jobs.
This simple phrase "create jobs" can easily mislead you.
Let me explain:
Why does government constantly fail to create jobs? Well --
Just separate the idea of “jobs” and “work” and you'll see.
Government can't create jobs.
JOBS are what you get when you invent or develop a product or service,
create demand and fill it. Jobs are a way to make money.
WORK is what you get when you take taxes from people who make money,
and give it to other people to do tasks you define. Work is a way to spend money.
Jobs come from the private sector.
Work comes from the government sector.
Government by its very nature cannot create jobs.
An energetic free public cannot help but create jobs.
Jobs create wealth.
Work consumes wealth.
Jobs are self perpetuating.
Work is finite.
Jobs come from companies, corporations and individuals.
Work comes from government “jobs” programs and agencies.
Jobs last as long as you create demand for what you do.
Work lasts as long as officials decide to pay workers.
Jobs create a sense of accomplishment.
Work creates a sense of dependency.
Jobs can grow through hard work.
Work ends when the assignment is done.
If you can invent a task that cannot be completed, work can go on forever.
Jobs don't have this nice feature. Government work does.
Politicians who say they'll “create” jobs are either sucking up, ignorant or lying.
Read that line again, it explains everything. Read it. I'll wait.
People who can create jobs are the backbone of American exceptionalism,
widely admired for contributing to prosperity, and the magnet that draws people here.
The only way government can help jobs happen is to stay out of the way of people who make the jobs. Government is not very good at that. It is a leash and heavy baggage interfering with productivity and jobs. Every time government regulations shrink, the business sector and jobs grow. It's not often.
Jobs are produced by capitalism, free enterprise, the right to contract, property ownership, free markets, entrepreneurial spirit, self starting, personal ambition, risk, division of labor, competition, marketing, economies of scale, prudent management, creativity, retention of the fruits of your labor and more.
Work is defined by government itself, on a project-by-project basis, using laws, regulations, policies, agencies, bureaus, committees, task forces, routine collectivist paradigms, central planning, czars, democratic decree, court decisions, taxpayer-provided physical assets and capital, and more.
See the difference? Government can only make work, using the money of people who earn it.
My guarantee: You'll be able to pick this analysis apart. Don't. Resist that temptation, especially semantics, and exceptions you can dream up. Understand the distinction here -- at its highest level: Jobs and work are not the same thing. Government by its very nature can only make work.
When you hear any candidates, “news” story, officials or pundits that speak to government “creating” jobs, know it is a false flag and see through the fog. Only businesses can make jobs. Now you know.
