The Science of Job Creationalism

If you're going to create a thing, shouldn't you first know "what it is" that you are creating before knowing "how" to create it?

So what is a "job"?

Maybe first we should examine a taxonomy of one's possible relations with the "job" thing.

(1) One may "have" a job.

(2) One may "do" the job.

(3) One may do useful, wealth-increasing work while on the "job".

(4) One may do useless or wealth-decreasing work while on the "job".

(5) One may be "proud" of one's job.

(6) One may have a IDGASOF* attitude about one's job.

In the Vacuum of Spaced-out Politics You Can't Hear the Unemployed Scream

They say that in the Vacuum of Spaced-out Politics, You Can't Hear the Unemployed Scream

Two US Presidential conventions.
Two weeks of speeches.
But do they know how to make it rain jobs?

The Republicans rain dance to the right.
The Democrats limbo rock to the left.

The clouds of thunderous voices gather.
But it raineth not.
