    Federal budget and Census data show that 91 percent of the benefit dollars from entitlement and other mandatory programs went to the elderly (people 65 and over), the seriously disabled, and members of working households. People who are neither elderly nor disabled — and do not live in a working household — received only 9 percent of the benefits.

    Moreover, the vast bulk of that 9 percent goes for medical care, unemployment insurance benefits (which individuals must have a significant work history to receive), Social Security survivor benefits for the children and spouses of deceased workers, and Social Security benefits for retirees between ages 62 and 64. Seven out of the 9 percentage points go for one of these four purposes.

    From what you are saying, I am barking up EXACTLY the right tree.

    I created and teach a career choice curriculum to help kids learn about all the different ways they can make a living. There are about 20,000 occupations you can pursue; poor kids generally only know about 20 of them. They are also not familiar with all the alternative ways to make a legal living - such as trading stocks. It is gratifying to watch their worlds open up when you show them all the possible alternatives for making a legal living, and how to do the research online. They just come alive!

    These kids want to be part of the rest of the world. When you reach out and start to share how to do it, the transformation in their outlook is astonishing.

    That's not enough to gain a foothold into a modern economy if they live in a world and local school district that doesn't intersect with the rest of the economy. One-on-one mentoring - literally people reaching out and showing the kids how to succeed - would help a lot.

    If every successful person reached out to one kid and showed them how to make it, and stuck with it for about 10 years, the third-world pockets in our midsts would change dramatically.

    People who truly don't know how to become part of American society. No one in their bubble understands how to make a decent living in America. They start kindergarten so behind other children that they can never catch up. They don't feel any connection to our world - it is like a foreign country. Until we help them find their way into society, they have no stake in preserving it.

    I felt the same way about Bush, but time and a little democracy eventually solved that problem. You would have far worse problems by abandoning democracy for regime-change-by-force.
