    ^^^ Thanks, you're totally right here - I completely missed the Green Aspects and Goverment Financing that was clearly an integral part of the Revolution.

    How could I have overlooked the obvious????

    Ok

    But you have to admit a lot of the protestors need a close up meeting with a bar of soap…

    The unemployment issue again: http://news.yahoo.com/unemployed-see...084916836.html

    I dont think new law is the answer and frankly Im not a big fan of government spending as the correct reaction to all economic problems. Setting those two issues aside for the moment...the question is "what would you do?"
    I mentioned the other day a scenerio where Government would directly reimburse employers that hired from the "unemployed 14 million" group. Since we have no WPA projects its difficult for Government to truly advertise "shovel ready" projects. If the goal is to get unemployed folks on a payroll why not incentivize employers to do just that? What is so outlandish about the Feds springing for the first say 25,000 in wages for each unemployed hired? The cost is far less than 477B and and puts $ back in circulation (consumer spending) faster than some complicated "Jobs Act" Another benefit is Government is no longer politicizing jobs with Green Job criteria. In the end a job is a job is a job. Government should have no real interest in job type.
    Leave it to employers to determine job types etc.
    These programs will go nowhere...stimulus programs so long as the same employed workers are simply shuffled from one employer to another and no gains in getting at least a chunk of the 14 million back to work.

    So I ask...what would you do?

    Absent from the Wall St Protests...where is the outrage? Average salaries by sport: Baseball 3,154,000...Hockey...2,600,000...Basketball...5,000,000 + Football roughly 1.500,000. As a group Ill bet wall street folks earn far less.

    ^Because it's not as much about how much they earn as it is about what they do to earn that money.


    As another election draws near; the G.O.P. are yet again filled with a stupid confidence that the they will win the White House. What they don't realize about people like Trump, Carson, and Cruz is that their rhetoric only resonates within an echo chamber, but not the American people. They live in an illusion of falsehood and distorted truth and only seek information and opinions that confirm these beliefs and instantly reject anything that contradicts them because only their opinions matter. Their notion of freedom is freedom for themselves and those alike to them, but not the rest of the country which has changed.
    These are the reasons why the G.O.P is set to lose in 2016. And when that happens, rest assured that they will have myriad of conspiracy theories blaming everyone and everything from the liberal media, to Oprah, to welfare moms, and pretty much everyone but their own disgusting selves.

    I love how the MSM isnt pointing out differences between these scumbag wall street thugs and the Tea party activists. The Tea party folks are respectful of property and are orderly plus they clean up after themselves and the anti- wall street lefties are filthy scum that destroy everything they encounter.

    Some of us call it class warfare, some of us call it capitalism.

    So what would you suggest people do about wall st.?

    Just bend over and take it.... That's what I figured... Have a nice day
