Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
Not true, I've had some pretty shitty social workers.
I don't know why anyone gets into social work in the first place. High unemployment and frequently cited as the lowest wages of any college major.
Yes. They do.I have estranged in laws - they aren't welcome in my home anymore because they are liberal fuckwits that think they can look down their noses at me because I laugh at the wrong jokes, think the wrong thoughts and I work in the icky private sector. He is an elementary school principal, she a militant feminist elementary teacher in a private school.They had two kids, a boy and a girl who both have 'learning disabilities' and are doing poorly in school. When they divorced, they both flailed around looking for babysitters because neither one of them had the time to look after the kids as they chased their important careers. We helped them out for awhile until I committed the unforgiveable sin of giving the boy a hatchet and a rifle. He was heart broken when Mommy forced him to return them. It broke my heart to take them back - all I could tell him was that he could have them back when he turned 18. His sister is a normal little girl that just needs a little help focusing. She is not a retard or disabled or impaired in any way that I can see. The parents didn't want to spend time with their kids and they didn't want anyone else spending time with them either. They still talk about the camping trip we took them on ten years ago.If either of those 'professionals' heard your little lecture their heads would literally explode. I gave myself sort of a birthday present by emailing the link to it to both of them!!! HAR HAR HAR!!!! My apologies if you get a shit load of hate mail from liberal fucktards as a result, Cap. Maybe I should give you a rifle and a hatchet too by way of compensation....probably a pistol too! What was that polymer piece of crap you're packing, son? Fer chrissakes, grow up and reward yourself like a man! Hmmmm - man like you would probably be best suited with something from Les Baer....let me know, I'll put it in with the cheque...:)
Great post as always. I need to address this topic in my own blog. When my children were young and my wife was working, I did the MATH. For married earners assume the mom is the second earner. That's 28% federal tax. 7% fica and in my state another 7%. That's roughly 42% in taxes right off the top. I subtracted that and what we were paying in day care, and told my wife she was working for $5 an hour. She was a bit worried about not having adult time, but decided to stay home. It worked out great. Really it's another test in the game of life.https://wisdomdistillery.wordpress.com/2014/08/30/game-of-life-part-i/
But a lot of them have "Masters Degrees", so they can claim that they're wicked smart and use their intelligence in noble, selfless ways. Instead of greedy capitalism. Or something. Am I doing this liberal thing right?
