"It's always reassuring to find you've made the right enemies." -- William J. Donovan
I would simply make able bodied welfare recipients work for their entitlement benefits. It does not matter what kind of work they do. The benefit is that they would decide that if they have to work anyway, they will seek a better paying job. Not every welfare recipient is there because he/she cannot find a job. Some families have been on welfare entitlements/food stamps for as many as four generations.i think that we should be hiring people to work. currently, there is an excess of labor due to our progression into a global / post labor economy. i would put them to work building domestic infrastructure, innovating new solutions to the energy problem, and ensure that they have access to higher education regardless of ability to pay. i would do so with tax dollars; some from new revenue streams, and others from rethinking our foreign policy.
What did not work was the US Congress leaving them on their own before they were ready.it didn't work. almost the entirety of southeast Asia fell to communism. pressure for regional change has to come from inside the region.
You have no choice on the wait. The hydrogen fuel cell technology is developed. There are hydrogen powered cars on the road now.....in very small numbers. They will not replace gasoline powered cars until they are cheap enough for the average driver to own them. I agree with government cutting red tape....however red tape in not the biggest issue. Affordability is.i'm definitely interested in this and other non-oil technologies. i just don't want to wait for it to be profitable to innovate them. my position is to let the research be funded publicly and to let the market pick the winner. i'm also ok with new power plants being public / private partnerships. the government needs to cut a lot of red tape so that we can start building them.
I did not approve before and I do not approve now. This is about money and big energy, the subliminal agendas of the CIA and Federal Reserve, and any War is a "TARP" for the MIC. It's a larger industry than the Auto Industry, so you know it is an agenda item, even if it is never discussed as such. National Defense, my ass. National Offense is the game plan militarily and economically.
"War is good busines, and business is good."
That's the true Washington mantra. If you don't have an enemy, create one. The CIA will help. All they need is money and weapons, don't ya' know? I don't support that agenda, and I don't remember seeing it on any ballots at election locations.
