    Well it seems there are a couple of losers here at USMB that doubt if ol HUGGY can invent anything useful. Lets take that frown and turn it upside down...let's make lemonade outta the lemons!!!!

    I'm gonna kick off this "inventors" thread on creating jobs. Feel free to chime in with YOUR job creating idea... Those of you that want to "invent" a new tax break for billionaires ...spare us...please...

    OK...here is one idea that could create jobs AND help cut the deficit.

    One of the biggest expenses in business is SHIPPING. I know that many flights by military cargo planes fly EMPTY. What if we have the military fly civilian cargo on empty flights and training missions. There are thousands of such flights every year. The businesses could get a reduced rate to fly their products and incoming parts via the military and the military could get an income that could help offset some of their operations cost.

    There could be many new jobs in routing and handling packages and as an added bonus to those communities near military bases there could be many jobs available supporting other aspects of this "new" shipping company.

    Just a thought..

    What's yours?

    Have to be sure the enemy is not shipping something hazardous, explosive, jamming, etc. Or something that can scan our secret codes, info, software, hardware, tracking or spying.

    Not an idea w/o merit.

    First idea off the top of my head is more artful. Get some return off our unemployment benefit investment. Send some folks who are claiming unemployment to go finish that Crazy Horse statue! At least we will get a few more international tourism bucks into the economy.

    Looking for work? 3 million jobs are available
    April 13, 2011 -- The picture is improving for unemployed job seekers. In February, hiring picked up and the ratio of unemployed seekers to available jobs improved to reach the lowest level since the end of 2008, according to the latest government readings released Wednesday.
