  1. Want to Solve Unemployment?

    The CEO of Kraft has compensation of 13.5 Million last year and "The President earns a $400,000 annual salary, along with a $50,000 annual expense account, a $100,000 nontaxable travel account and $19,000 for entertainment". Tell me the mac and cheese guy should make 23.8 times more compensation then the CEO of the United States. I am sure at least ten other upper management are making 5 million a year. Now we all know that this is insane compensation for the job that they do. So take 65.5 million x .05 = 3.275 million compensation for 11 people ( CEO…

    • Send a letter to the President, Congress

      This is the letter I sent. Copy it and send it or write your own:

      Why don’t the Democrats stand up for Middle America? Are you all bought by the special interests?
      Take a clue from the re-call campaign in Wisconsin. Middle America wants you to stop representing all the special interests: the banks (can you tell me why we bailed them out and then did not prosecute any of them? And why is it that the SEC allows high speed trading?; could it be that the financial big boys who finance your political campaigns - Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan,…

        • The Economy

          Why are the American people being asked to brace for more taxes to cover the "SOBs" that put us in the hole that we're in, while they are banking record profits, luxury vacations in their privet Jets, and mansions in exotic places?????????????

            • Breaking our oil addiction

              Take away big oil subsidies, and offer back with conditions.

              xyz oil company must sign an agreement to shift 75% of its operation into domestic (U.S) hydrogen, and bio-fuel production over the course of 10 years in a 3 step process.

              1) Research and Development: Bring production costs down

              2) Infrastructure construction: Building hydrogen compression plants, land acquisitions for bio-fuel production (Further incentives for utilizing waste products from existing industries ( existing water treatment plants)

              3) Distribution: Offer high octane bio-fuels, hydrogen, and high octane conventional gasoline at the same fueling stations

                    • tunnel

                      Recent accidents in tunnels of New York gave me the idea. Supply of liquid crystal television screens that will work as an informant only in cases of emergency, situations. As a result, people will be informed about what is happening and will not panic, do not poorly important for health and longevity of life of the nation.

                      • Build a World Bridge from and rads and pipe lines for fresh water and oil and gas Alaska to Russia.

                        The world needs more resources a World Bridge and an international highway / pipeline for fresh water, natural gas and oil would be distributed world wide creating the largest jobs program ever with world cooperation.
                        Commerce would flourish around the world and open new resources for discovery and move populations northward. I would like to drive my RV to China and enjoy the scenery along the way

                        • Require everyone to contribute 2 years of national service

                          One of the things we are missing in the UNITED States of America is something that unites all of us in common endeavors that strengthen our nation.
                          This relates to several "categories" (education, environment, employment, energy, technology).

                          WHEN? After high school, after graduating from college (or at the time of dropping out of high school or college). Perhaps with the requirement to be satisfied (for youth) by the time they reach the age of 26 or 28?

                          HOW? It would require establishing programs (combination of government and industry) for young people and would be mandatory for ALL, even handicapped people…

                          • TAX CORRECTLY

                            THE SAD PART OF THE WAY YOU LIBERALS ATTACK THE RICH FOR NOT PAYING THEIR “FAIR SHARE” OF TAXES BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T RAISE THE RATE TO 39% AND USING BILLIONAIRES AS THE REASON, IS THAT IT IS DISTORTED. USE BUFFET AS A GOOD EXAMPLE. YOUR RIGHT, HE DOESN’T PAY HIS FAIR SHARE. HOWEVER, HE ONLY PAYS A LITTLE OVER 10% NOW. RAISING THE RATE WOULDN’T AFFECT HIM, OR THE OTHERS WITH GREAT WEALTH, BECAUSE THE MORE MONEY YOU HAVE, THE LESS % YOU PAY DUE TO THEM BEING ABLE TO YOU USE ALL THE TAX LOOPHOLES. THE FACT IS, THAT…

                                    Do a feature story on this for "Steel on Wheels." This is is a little known, low impact technology for producing fuel for hydrogen cells -- the only technology that will wean vehicles from petroleum-based fuels.

                                      • HAMP

                                        HAMP needs to be fixed - not canceled. You can not call HAMP a failure if it was never implemented according to design.

                                        • Transfer the wealth that was taken from the poor through usury back to them through investment

                                          Lending money does not in and of itself create products, whether goods or service. Only when the debtor uses the money to make or do things does the lent money do work. If private lenders are lending poorly wealth will never be created by that lending. As long as lending can earn a profit without producing wealth for the debtor it is the functional equivalent of theft.
