    There are a couple of ways to create jobs. I think the first one is an infusion of money from the Federal Government for re-building our infrastructure. We have so many roads, tunnels and bridges that are in urgent need of repair it would put a lot of people to work. When I drive through the tunnel into Boston I'm always looking to see if any ventilation apparatus is falling down or watching for falling light fixtures. Someone will be killed if these things are fixed. Remember the bridge in Minnesota that just collapsed out of the blue not too long ago.
    Then I think that small businesses should get a tax break of some sort for every new employee they hire. That will provide jobs and stimulate their own businesses.
    Large corporations should review their executive salary structure and perks and cut them. Use the money they save to hire more people and/or raise the salaries of current workers so they have more to spend in the economy. If you create a demand for products you will not only stimulate spending, you will stimulate hiring to meet the demand. workers

    Jobs are properly created by entrepreneurs who are willing to work hard and take calculated risks. Jobs are also created through real increases in productivity, resulting from re-invested profits or conservative borrowing at market interest rates.

    have every home and commercial building in America get solar panels installed. We could used some of our armed forces as part of that labor force and take the money wasted on the drug and other wars and use it for that purpose. Once completed there would be some on going maintenance needed.

    I would tax every American business 50% (maybe even 60%) if they choose to manufacture and/or employ people overseas. They can certainly make that choice but I would see to it that it would cost them the same as it would to keep their business here.

    Every person would earn a living wage dependent on location.

    I would encourage a more natural and ecological approach to production and manufacturing. A company that pollutes won't get fined they will be shut down until they clean up their mess. If the people in charge refuse they will go to prison.

    I would also encourage local organic farms while limiting large agribusinesses.

    I would stop monopolies from swallowing up and destroying small businesses. End the strip mall syndrome.

    I would like to see a major change in our attitudes about the obsession with "growth" rather than sustainability. It is very short sighted and destructive as is evident by what we can see in our air, land and water... all around us.

    First, I would change individual attitudes. As a nation, we need to give greater respect to those who have an education and educate others.

We need to motivate the eighty year old multi billionaires to share and create incubators for small business people to create small businesses. Anyone who is making money in the USA has a social responsibility to give back to the nation which created their wealth. We need business people to create jobs. WE NEED MORE TEACHERS TO HELP THOSE WHO ARE ILLITERATE TO BECOME MORE LITERATE. Increase the resources and salaries of teachers. Make prosocial volunteer community efforts yield extrinsic rewards.

    “Fascist Theocracy,” this is new! The US Constitution is a Republic form of government and has nothing to do with “Fascist” methodology as in control of industry by the government a.k.a. authoritarian nationalism. As for a “Theocracy,” the First Amendment in the US Constitution prevents the government to form a “Theocracy,” like governments under Sharia Law. Perhaps, you need a different term to express your “Hitler’s rule” outrage.

    Mike I suggest you look at Germany 1930's/40's. Horrible recession preceeded by a depression. Little known party begins to build itself up and finds a mouthpiece in Hitler.

    The RCC and Protestants back this little party with speeches from the pulpits. Along with the backing of the industiralist who want to build Germany's factories back up etc and become a major capitialist country again.

    The rise to power is very easy when you take aim different groups and defame them as less than human. Jews and homosexuals, minority religions. Take your pick.

    Today in the US, we had televangelists of the 1980's who vowed to take over a political party to advance their goals of dominence in our nations politics. There acheived goals were to take over towns, cities, countries and states, this they have done. Their goal to take over the US Government has progressed rapidly since Bush I and II opened the doors to the White House for policy conferences etc.

    Additionally, we have seen the growth of the Rabid Radical Religious Reich in the Evangelical Right to the point where the various candidates are FEARFUL of these groups. The biggest action todate has been Prop8 in California where the Religoiusly backed political groups imposed religious based dogma, doctrines and belief into the Constitution...

A TOTALLY unconstitutional action against the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 14th Amendments.

    Today we see the expansion of these groups in the influence of our national elections in the unlimited amounts of money they can spend via the Citizens United SCOTUS decision.

    Today we have a three headed Hydra of American Facism which has formed out of the alliance between the Uber Rich, The Republcian/Tea Party and the Radical Rabid Relgious Reich. Make no bones about it. They want and will take at all costs our nation down the path to a Fascist Theocracy if the Romney/Ryan ticket wins in November. There goal aready has been to gut the middle class and working poor of finiancal ability to affect elections, the next will be to continue to remove basic civil rights.

    If you don't see it then you better open your eyes and do some study before you make a very bad decision to back the Republcian/Tea Party this fall.

    Perhaps, you are watching too much televangelist. Change the channel to the History Channel and you may find our Founding Fathers were all religious and believers in God. Read our Declaration of Independence and count how many times God was mentioned. If anyone should worry about changing the structure of our country’s founding, just look who’s in the White House today.

    The Founding Fathers were indeed Believers in a God/supreme being. Although they associated with different groups the majority were simplyt Diests and were also Masons. Many were avowed agnostics as well.

    For every step that Christendom takes to install their religious beliefs into our laws and constitutions, Sharia Law will be right behind them demanding the same exact privelge of acceptance into the law.

    That is WHY the absolute separation of church and state is a manditory process in our nation and has been so stated by SCOTUS. The INSTANT one religion can install religious codes into our system ie Christendom, Every other religion will have been given the OK to do so also.

    This is why I have preached against ANY political activity by religious groups at all, in any way shape or form

    Perhaps, you and Joan Bokaer should read the US Constitution of 1787, the one those Christians and Deists wrote. In the first amendment, the design of our government is not to be based on ANY theocracy. This phobic-Christian-theocracy stuff does not exist in our US Constitution. The Tea Party conservatives today want our government to get off the current “living constitution” and reinstate the US Constitution of 1787. I went to Joan’s website (www.theocracywatch.org) and searched on “Sharia Law,” and found no entries, interesting. Sharia Law is the theocracy on the move in the US. Just Google “Sharia Law in the US” and tell Joan to update her website.
  • sjalan Mike 2012/08/20 16:21:08
    sjalan
    You're correct, Christian-theocracy doesn't exist in our US Constitution. But the current crop of Christendom leaders and political pundents are insisting we are a "Christian" country and are demanding that religion, Christian religious practices and teachings, be placed into our US Constitution via amendments and laws. A perfect example of that was the State Constitutional Amendment recently passed in Missiouri which places prayer, foremost Christain prayer, forward as the only acceptable prayer available in Missouri. This is unconstitutional in the nth degree and totally in violation of the basic civil rights of persons who are not Christians. You say we are a country based upon NO theocracy, yet you ignore what is happening around you. Sorry, you really need to wake up to the reality of what Christendom is doing in this country.

    As for Sharia Law, here is a site you can bite your teeth into.

    www.islam-watch.org
  • Mike sjalan 2012/08/20 17:07:05
    Mike
    So I see, Sharia Law does not belong on a “theocracy watch” website. It is not easy to amend the US Constitution that is why we have the “living constitution.” If you fear some theocracy taking over our “living constitution,” as I do, then you should join the Tea Party in trying to get our US Constitution back. While many public places are throwing out the Ten Commandments, Sharia Law already has a footing in our “living constitution.” Your fears are certainly not my fears and I’m sure my fears are of no interest to you. Since we have this understanding, I thank you for your time in this exchange of information; may you find Happiness in your objectives.

    Probably go about it in a similar fashion to Hitler (yes!) when he had to pull Germany up from horrid squalor and depression in the late 30s after taking power.
    (No, it does not involve killing anyone, or rearming for war...or starting one)
    I would institute MASSIVE national projects that required hundreds of thousands of workers.
    You may go from wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase
    to
    wearing overalls and carrying a shovel.......But you are going BACK to work.
    And good hard physical labor to earn your pay, is just as good for 30-40 year olds as we say it is for teenagers when we put a shovel in their hands and send them out into the back yard on the weekend........I think it would improve the national character a bit.
    I really do.

    Hitler built the Autobahn.....In fact some of the autobahn is still the original construction.

    I would begin a huge continental US wide rebuild of our highway system. Having driven from Tx to Calif and back in the last two weeks.....I can say it's needed.
