Fallacy of Unemployment

Jville_picA few weeks ago, former Speaker of the House, Tom Delay hurled himself back into the spotlight when he stated unemployment compensation keeps people from looking for work. The media was quick to tackle the former speaker for his remarks. Nevertheless, his asinine opinion is a representation of how out of touch many politicians are with the constituents they serve.

Anyone who is or has been unemployed will attest that the monetary benefits received aren’t nearly enough to cover the basic cost of living for a single person, let alone someone with a family to support. Granted, the situation can function as a startling realization in deciphering needs

My Favorite Quote

1069764_sadness"Don't make anyone your first priority when all you are to them is an option".

This quote was something that my mother would often say to me growing up. I never really understood completely what she meant by it, until I reached the age of 25. Yes, sad but true, It took me all those years to realize what she was trying to tell me and what I am about to say, may not be new to you.

Most woman do not realize that this is happening to them. A man comes along and enters into their world and treats them like a queen in the beginning of the relationship and then bang! He flips the script on them and starts treating them like they are just a piece of meat and end up leaving them all chewed up, like they never meant anything to them.

Each One Teach One

eachone Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw penned “He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.” Was he right? Are coaches washed up athletes who didn’t make it? Perhaps all the self help gurus have all the knowledge but not enough ambition to achieve their dreams?

But wait a minute. There are the Pat Rileys, and Phil Jacksons, the Warren Buffets, the master mason and the apprentice. Either Shaw was wrong or there must be exceptions to this rule. It may be possible to master a skill and share those same methods and techniques with others. Is writing one of those skills that can be taught?

A quick google search for writing help literally yields millions of results. There are many self proclaimed gurus ready to sell you their “secrets” to success. Of course, these gurus charge a hefty fee. For a new writer the publishing world may seem like Goliath. Spending wads of cash to learn a craft might seem rational. It is not. Writing is indeed a craft. Is it possible for someone who was once unpublished, like yourself, to teach you the craft? The answer is debatable. But writer Julia Cameron offers new comers something special in her book “The Right to Write”.
