    If we were to take the students applying for degrees, or such, they could work for free in their studies for a year or so to get a reference and maybe a permanent post there, like they do in hospitals. spreading this far and wide would see many posts filled at very little cost.

    If we were to use unemployed people to 'run things,' we could see to it that they receive food rations in exchange for their work. or, they could receive a preferred allocation of 'coupons' they could sell?

    If social security was about delivering services to the people, then they could satisfy themselves! there could be a skeleton staff doing the filing, and the people could self service like at a petrol station. of course, they can take as long as they like, whenever they like.

    social security is a supplement to your income when you retire..how you use it is your business...and internships are out their for the people who want them..but most college students don't want to work while they are going to school..they need the time to have fun and screw around...if you need a reference get a summer job in your field instead of sitting around doing nothing or wasting your time on the internet or facebook...what does facebook pages look like?..never been on it and never will..it serves no real purpose in the real world..

    There are a few work off your tuition colleges in the US. I think most of them are small, private, and funded by Christians and conservatives mostly. I am a whacky socialist and I donate once a year to one of them. I have nothing in common with their politics, but I like they way they operate to benefit students.

    October 19, 2015 | My 13-year-old son told me at the dinner table the other day that Franklin Roosevelt was one of America’s “greatest presidents” because “he ended the Great Depression.” He’s usually a good student, so I checked where he got this tripe, and sure enough, the fairy tale was right there in his American history book.

    Judiciary Chair: Spending Deal Makes No Change to Visa Program That 'Poses Significant National Security Risks'
    December 17, 2015 | An ongoing visa program that allows foreigners who invest in U.S. businesses to obtain a green card and a pathway to citizenship is “plagued by fraud and abuse” and “poses significant national security risks,” yet it was unchanged and fully funded in the omnibus appropriations bill, said Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) today.
