What if the NFL Played by Teachers' Rules? by Fran Tarkenton

Imagine a league where players who make it through three seasons could never be cut from the roster.

Imagine the National Football League in an alternate reality. Each player's salary is based on how long he's been in the league. It's about tenure, not talent. The same scale is used for every player, no matter whether he's an All-Pro quarterback or the last man on the roster. For every year a player's been in this NFL, he gets a bump in pay. The only difference between Tom Brady and the worst player in the league is a few years of step increases.

Libertarians to Bernanke: You're wrong

WASHINGTON - Libertarian Party Chair Mark Hinkle issued the following statement today:

"Associated Press reports today that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke is telling Congress they must not cut federal spending sharply. Chairman Bernanke, you're wrong.

"The federal government is currently spending somewhere around 24% of America's total economic output -- even more if you ignore the government's accounting gimmick of 'offsetting receipts.'

LP Monday Message: A new year of government spending

October 3, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

The U.S. government's fiscal year ended last Friday. (That was FY 2011.)

Republicans took over the U.S. House last November, and as a result, government spending finally dropped.

Whoops! I have that wrong. Government spending actually increased!

They haven't reported the final numbers yet, but FY 2010 spending was $3.456 trillion, and FY 2011 spending was most recently projected to come in at $3.597 trillion. That's a 4% increase.

The Kauffman Foundation shows how startup businesses are responsible for nearly all new jobs in the United States.

Among the points it makes creatively: Of the 3 million new jobs that are created in a typical year, nearly every one is at a firm that’s been in existence five years or less.  These are real jobs, not government make work, jobs.
